50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40Whew! Monday was loooong day. I was pooped by the time that I got home at 6:00 pm. But, the most wonderful thing happened right before I was getting ready to go home. In walked my Energizer Bunny Friend with a homemade chicken pot pie and a strawberry cheesecake!! Woohoo!!! I didn’t have to cook dinner! She is redoing her daughter’s bathroom and they have been buying paint, etc. from the lumber company. She was coming back in to see if we had some kind of weird light switch and brought the food with her. I sure hope they decide to renovate the rest of the house. Lol!!!50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40 Day 1 of training my replacement went really well. He was a little hesitant at first but he catches on so quickly. He had already down the deposits and totaled the checkbook and then we paid all of the bills and downloaded our huge shipment that we get every Monday. Then he caught up on the receiving after the checks were all signed and stuffed into the envelopes. I had one errand to do and that was to go to the bank and the post office as I went to pick up my lunch. I went to both of those places and then came back to work and went to put up the change that we needed. I looked in the bank bag and was confused because our deposits were still in the bag. He asked me if I forgot to go to the bank and I said, no. Then I remembered that I went to the bank and gave them some “personal” things that I needed to be deposited but I didn’t give them the company’s bag. Lol!!! Guess who got to turn around and go right back to the bank??? Hahaha!50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40 You are going to love this chiffon blouse from Vince Camuto. I love the garden floral print and how it is in subdued colors for fall. This floral print isn’t a frilly print like most florals and I liked it because of that. This does run large so you will need to size down, I am wearing a medium and it is still a little big under the arms. It is 100% polyester so it can be machine washed and tumbled dry. One of the best things about the blouse is that it is 40% off!!! Grab it before it all sells out.50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40 If you wear these Phyliss wooden earrings at the lake you could always use them as an oar to paddle your boat. Lol!!! These 4″ earrings are really noticeable and they are not for the faint of heart. I like them but I know that they won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. I am wearing them combined with the Larissa necklace. The Larissa is wooden beads on a dark brown cord and it is 64″ long. You can wear it long, knotted, or doubled as I have it in the picture below.50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40 I also have on the Cheetah print Mae bracelet with the “Let Go Let God” pendant. This is adjustable from 7.5″ – 8.5″. Don’t forget about this month’s giveaway since this is the last week to take advantage of it. I have been celebrating my 3 year blog anniversary by offering a free piece of jewelry with every 50.00 purchase (excluding taxes and shipping) for this entire month! Go here and have fun shopping! Make sure that you pick a party with my name in it so that I can track the purchases.50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40 It is getting ankle bootie wearing weather. I really love this time of the year and I am trying not to think about the upcoming colder weather of the winter and just enjoy fall. This suede pair of booties are by Marc Fisher and I have had them for several years. I love the dark taupe color of these booties and even though I couldn’t find this pair online anymore, I found several that are very similar for you.

50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40I bought this military-inspired vest last year at Cato Fashions. I have noticed that the colors of the vests in the stores this year seem to be darker colors. I like the cinch waist style since it can be adjusted to each person. You can wear it loose or cinch it for a more fitted look. I am still trying to get used to wearing a vest like this because it is not a style that I ever wore in the past. This is a style that is out of my comfort zone but I am giving it a try.

50 IS NOT OLD | ANKLE BOOTS TIME OF THE YEAR | FASHION OVER 40My sister woke up early last Friday and decided to look at my post that had the video showing my 5-minute makeup routine. As she was watching it she showed it to her husband and wanted him to look at my “lack” of wrinkles. She mentioned that Rodan + Fields really does work and he commented back that he thought it was a “magical potion.” Lol!!!

  1. What happened to your other 2 friends you always talked about in your early blogs.?
    I hope they are well. You only mention your energizer bunny friend
    Love your earrings!

      Diane, they are still friends but they no longer work with me and we hardly ever see each other any more. Life has a way of changing things for you. I talk to EBF 3 or 4 times on most days because we are in business together. Thanks for asking.

  2. My feet are just getting used to wearing a full shoe/boot again after our wonderful hot summer. Last weekend I found a beautiful pair of boots in a store and can’t wait to post about them this weekend.
    It sounds as though you have a easy pupil to teach this time. Hope it isn’t too long before you are enjoying your retirement again. Jill x

      I am ready for some cute boots. I love wearing boots in the fall and winter.

  3. Really like the outfit…good transition to fall without being overly warm. The new guy sounds like a good fit…..Will Joe be offering up the condo to him when the training is done? 😜

    I’m just not sure how to wear the booties, socks showing or no socks showing?

    • Tania Reply

      Kathy, I hate socks! So, if I can get away with it, I never wear socks.

  7. Well I knew you’d get a replacement right away! So far it sounds like this one is a keeper. Best of luck to him.
    Love this outfit!! I’ve got to ease myself into wearing boots! I don’t have a pair of booties, but I’ve been shopping around for a couple of pairs that will be comfy and on sale.
    I have that style jacket in my Cato shopping bag. I wasn’t sure between the vest or the jacket and now I’m thinking the vest!!! I’d get more use out of it. Thanks Tania!!f
    What a wonderful friend you have to bring you dinner!! Yummy! it looks delish and who doesn’t love chicken pot pie??? Especially this time of year!!!😂😂
    I really enjoy reading your blog, it’s the first thing I do in the morning!! Have a wonderful day.😊😊

  8. Love the outfit! What a nice surprise for dinner. You also look slim, how do you do it? Love love your blog!!!

  9. in your 5 minute makeup video ….your face had no wrinkles….I know that this is absolutely true because I saw you with no makeup on at the beach (Rosemary Beach) and told you looked 10…remember the picture I am talking about? I think all of them!!!!

  10. How very thoughtful of your EBF!!!! So glad you didn’t have to cook after a looong first day back. (Trying hard to keep the “Welcome Back Kotter” earworm out. Thanks a lot, Joe!) Great look!

  11. Hi Tania! I really like the wooden earrings and necklace with the olive vest…looks very safari-like. Oh, and of course the cheetah print bracelet too! Maybe R+F will offer an African safari trip in the near future so you and Joe can go. Cause girl, you KNOW you’ll win that trip!! lol Thanks for giving us an update on where Sandy and Bertha have gotten off to. I’ve been wondering about them myself. I hope they’re both doing well. Anytime your EBF wants to start a mail-order food company, just let me know! lol Have a great week!!!

    Lol, glad I’m not the only one to go somewhere with a specific plan, get side tracked while there and forget the number one reason for being there.
    Love your whole outfit. You look amazing!
