50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR VELVET OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40I was talking to my hubby, aka Joe, last night on the phone before I went to bed. He told me to slap him  😱 the next time that he told me to go out of town for a week and a half. LOL!!! I think he is missing me, what do you gurls think? I don’t know why he is missing me because I left him the dog and the cat for company. He should be feeling needed having to change the puppy pads and making sure that they get fed twice a day. Just typing that has me rolling in laughter. Lol!!!50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR VELVET OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40 He is getting his revenge though, he has adopted a new kitten. 🐱 My son who lives next door has a cat who had 4 kittens about a couple months ago. They have gotten old enough to start exploring and they have found their way to my house. My older cat was not amused but the kittens didn’t pay her any attention. They have taken a strong liking to MY catfood and they appear on my porch every morning and night. My son fusses at me and tells me to stop feeding his cats. Lol! Like that is going to happen. Hahaha! Anyway, two of them have bobtails and Joe claimed one of them as HIS last night. He is actively trying to think of a name for it which is kind of difficult since we don’t know if it is a girl or a boy. Here is a picture of two of them and I think the one that is “his” is the one on the left.50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR VELVET OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40 Aren’t they adorable? Let’s come up with some names for them for Joe. He is not that creative. Lol! Shhh, don’t tell him that I said that………and this means YOU, Debbie! Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR VELVET OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40First off, Happy Halloween!!!! Next, I want to apologize for the quality of the photos. I took these pictures after I had come home from work one afternoon and the sun was starting to set. The photos were dark and when I tried to “lighten” them up it made them grainy. At least you get the idea of what everything looks like. I love this velvet top in maroon from Old Navy. Velvet is a HUGE trend and you can find all different colors and different items in velvet.

50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR VELVET OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40This is the first time that I have worn the Rae earrings. They are a matte gold, diamond-shaped earring, with light pink stones. I added the Jolene bracelet with the look since it also has light pink stones. I love the movement of the flowers on the bracelet. I also added the gold links Eloise bracelet with this look. It was the first time for me to war this one also. I love that you can wear it with lots of things and it looks so elegant.50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR VELVET OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40 I am a sucker for a long duster and this one from Old Navy jumped in my shopping cart before I even knew it. Lol! This is so comfy and cozy and I love the pockets on it. The color I chose is called Mauvey Star but I have no idea why since it is a taupe/beige color which is a great neutral. I ordered a large and it fits perfect. I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t too small for me to wear a shirt or a sweater under it. It is also on sale, so woohoo!!! 50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR VELVET OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40I bet you thought that I had on the same jeans that I had on in this post. Nope! This is a pair of Rockstar jeans from Old Navy in the color Royal Pine. This is a fantastic buy on these jeans for those who want to try the olive color trend that is so hot this year without purchasing a more expensive pair of pants.

  1. Cat name suggestions: Olive if it’s a girl, Oliver if it’s a boy.

      Mary, you must have ESP. Olive is the name of the momma cat!!!

  2. You look beautiful! Enjoy your family time.😊

    Happy Halloween!🎃👻🧛🏻‍♂️🦇🧙🏻‍♀️🧙🏻‍♂️🧟‍♀️🎃

  3. Hi Tania, I have a Bobtail and he is smart as can be, so watch out….lol. My boy is named Gino, he comes when called, really. Being from New York my family always enjoyed naming our 1 cat household Italian names, it’s very amusing when people hear us talk out about our cats. So my point is let the people crack up when you talk about your new kitty. Here are some suggestions…. I only had male cats by chance so I’m suggesting only male names more dramatic.
    Bruno, Tony, Sal, Gino, Mario, Gennaro, JohnnyG, Paulie

    Have fun,


  4. HAPPY HALLOWEENIEE!!!🎃🍁👹👺👻💀Thank you for posting the color of the jeans. I was going to purchase them, but wasn’t sure how dark there were. They are just the color I’m looking for!! That whole outfit is so fitting for this time of year and I almost didn’t see you as you blended right in the background!!😂😂. Oh no, more animals!!😨😱 At least cats are more independent than dogs and you have someone close to take care of them when you and hubby are away.
    How about the names Smokey and Bandit? Enjoy this day!! 🎃🍁👻

  5. What a great photo shot with the fall tree in the background. It pulls all the colors together. Love this look on you and the pretty scarf. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

  6. Just bought those pants to wear with denim shirt. I love your look. I will have to look for these pieces. The kittens are precious. Enjoy your time away. Happy Halloween.

    Happy Halloween from SE Florida! Great outfit as usual. The markings on the kittens backs remind me of chipmunks. How about Alvin or Teddie (Theodore)? 🤗

  8. I love this whole look and it looks so pretty against your backdrop! Really a pretty scarf too that will work with other color shirts with the pants and sweater. Happy Halloween!

  9. I always enjoy reading the comments and I can’t see them for whatever reason. Any ideas? Love the outfit! Very cute. I think a great name for the kitten would be Bob. LOL Hope your day is great!

      Lisa, do you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page? They appear at the very end.

    Haha! I can’t help it.. I love the blog and the stories are priceless. I can’t believe he outed me! Lol

  11. Happy Halloween 🎃 Like the duster and the pants. Cute as always. I bought my specials today.

    • Tania Reply

      Yay! Thanks for the order and I am so tickled that you have become a FORMER skeptic!

  12. Oh, one more name. If I ever get a male pet I want to name him Larry. Just makes me smile.

  13. While I don’t have any creative cat names to give you, I want to tell you how I’ve really been loving all those animal print outfits you’ve been styling! I meant to comment yesterday, but I had to go somewhere immediately after reading your post and never got back to you. Today’s outfit is also pretty and that tree behind you made the perfect backdrop! Love Mattie B’s hairdo as Cindy Lou Who, she nailed it! You have a beautiful family, that’s for sure!

  14. Hoping that poor cat gets spayed and the kittens spayed or neutered when they are 6 months, if they make it to that age living outdoors. Thousands of “excess” cats are euthanized (i.e. “humanely” killed) every year. Shelters are always overflowing with homeless cats and kittens.
