50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO DRESS UP A T-SHIRT | FASHION OVER 40The other day one of my readers said that the great thing about retirement was that they could pick up and go at the drop of a hat. I just experience that for the first time. I traveled to my parents on Monday and the plan was for me to return home on Wednesday, notice I said plan. My sister came to their house also but she had to go back to Georgia on Tuesday. This is where it gets interesting.50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO DRESS UP A T-SHIRT | FASHION OVER 40 My sister was telling everyone goodbye on Monday night because she knew that she wouldn’t be seeing them anymore before she left. She asked our teenage niece if she wanted to go home with her but that was a no go. Then she moved on to the younger niece but since she was going to have to work on Wednesday and there wasn’t anyone to watch her that was a no go also. In desperation, she asked my mom if Finley the dog could go and play with her dog but once again she was turned down flat. The next day while we were sitting around my sister mentioned that no one wanted to go home with her, not even the dog. “You didn’t even ask me” is what I said and she looked surprised. “Do you want to go?” A quick phone call to Joe to confirm that he didn’t have a problem with me going and I was off on my next big adventure. Lol!! I might get used to this retirement life. 😊50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO DRESS UP A T-SHIRT | FASHION OVER 40I really like my hot pink crinkle tee the was c/o Purple Poppy. This is one of those kinds of tops that you can pull out of your closet and wear with a lot of different things. When I styled it the first time I wore it with a skirt and then I have worn it with jeans and now with shorts. It was casual and comfortable and had the cute slits at the shoulders to make it unique. But today, I want to show you how adding different accessories can really make a difference in the look of a top. You can do the same thing with any plain t-shirt or top that you might have in your closet. Here are some cute ones that would work.

50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO DRESS UP A T-SHIRT | FASHION OVER 40I will see who my “wild” readers are by who orders any of these items. I love animal print but even I was a little worried if I would wear this set. I got a ton of compliments so what do I know. Lol! The Judith necklace is a real showstopper. It is 27 inches long and has a full mane of olive colored fringe. The 5 stone, which is attached to the cream and leopard print fabric, are a light pink and marbled looking  The matching Juanita earrings are a little tamer if you want to start with baby steps. Lol! They have a leopard print circle and the olive tassel drops from there. The Frankie bracelet has sold out several times and has to be a best seller. All of the multi-leather strands are cute and the magnetic closure makes it easy to put on and take off. 50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO DRESS UP A T-SHIRT | FASHION OVER 40Since I told you in yesterday’s post that I had a pair of beige bermuda shorts I just decided t go ahead and show them to you. Lol! Some of you commented that you really like this type of shorts and some said that you didn’t like the style on you. Isn’t that the way it is with everything? Fashion and style is a matter of trial and error. You might know what looks good one you but stretching those boundaries is a good thing. Try something new occasionally, you might find something that you like. I have no idea where I got this pair of shorts but I feel like you will be able to find plenty in the stores. Here are a few.

    Tania, I literally laughed out loud when I opened your blog this morning. I’m wearing the exact same necklace and earrings. This is one of my favorites from Plunder! I get so many compliments. Love that pink t-shirt too.

      I am so glad that I have stepped outside my comfort zone. I never used to even wear red! Oh my, how boring would life be without red!

    Woohoo I never win anything! A very uncomfortable situation has now been made profitable! Thank you!

  4. you look great! I have also taken off on a little adventure for the week, it is only day 3 but so far we have changed plans at least that many times and are having a great time with our first adventure no kids! we decided to travel around the state and see waterfalls and hike, something we would have never done when we were younger. Enjoy your trip, you look great and relaxed!

      That is a rocking outfit for sure! I love that beautiful tee and I love that jewelry! I might have to order it although I have the plunder necklace that looks alot like that but in silver. And I wear it all the time and get lots of compliments. But you know I love animal prints! I’m so glad you are allowing yourself to enjoy your retirement. And your sister. Have a blast!

  5. You are looking fabulous in your casual outfit. Have you lost some weight? I don’t mean this as a cheeky question but you are looking really slim. Fabulous hot pink hop and nice casual shorts. The necklace certainly dresses up the whole outfit.

      I think I ❀ you!!! I have lost a whole 5 pounds. Lol!

  6. I just clicked on the link about the showstopper necklace and I think you look better wearing it than the model! Fabulous!!!
