50 IS NOT OLD | MONOCHROMATIC LOOK FOR THE HOLIDAYS | FASHION OVER 40First thing I want to talk to you about is signing up for my daily emails. I mentioned the other day on Facebook that WordPress has been doing updates to their website. Normally, that is a good thing, but there are usually some issues that need to be ironed out. Well, yesterday I encountered one of those issues, and one of the ways that the issue can be fixed is if you are signed up for my daily emails.50 IS NOT OLD | MONOCHROMATIC LOOK FOR THE HOLIDAYS | FASHION OVER 40 I mentioned to my sister that the views on my blog had been down for the past few days. I asked her if she could go to her computer and see if the blog was posting correctly. Guess what? My post wasn’t even showing up on her computer. So, I went to Joe’s computer, and it wasn’t there either. I had already talked to my mom earlier that morning, and she mentioned how much whiter my teeth looked, so I knew that she had seen my post. Then, it dawned on me why my mom had seen the post, but it wasn’t showing up on my sister’s computer…my mom had clicked the link from her daily email. Moral of this story, sign up for the email, and you will never miss a post!!! If you are not sure how to do that, then comment below, and I can sign up for you.

I love this monochromatic look even though there is no added color. A padded vest is perfect for this time of the year since you can use the vest for added warmth and discard it if you get too hot.

50 IS NOT OLD | MONOCHROMATIC LOOK FOR THE HOLIDAYS | FASHION OVER 40These distressed-washed gray jeans have been a favorite of mine since I bought them last month. The reason is easy to see and feel, they are stretchy, flattering, super soft, and affordable!!! They also have an innovative Built-In Sculpt fabric that sculpts, shapes and holds you in for an amazing fit.

  1. Grey is such a classy colour and suits most people. I have found that this winter I have bought quite a few grey items of which 2 are dresses that I have had lots of wear from.

    I fell in love with the red plaid gloves that showed up from Talbots. Not available in the red. Oh well. Saved some money. Lol.

    • Tania Reply

      Oh my goodness! They were available last night!!! Those must have flown off the shelves. Lol!

    • Tania Reply

      Aww, thanks, Amy! Joe even complimented me on the outfit!

  3. Love the look!! What great color! I wore the monochromatic look the other day with white and beige, which was out of my comfort zone. I guess it’s been drilled into our heads that you don’t wear white after Labor day!!! I do have a winter white outfit to wear next. I’m just looking for the perfect boot to go with i!! Wish me luck!!😊

      Carol, we must be thinking alike. I will be styling a winter white on winter white look early next week.

  4. Love the look! Super cute on you. Are the jeans Nygard Luxe Denim? I have started wearing them and they are amazing.

    • Tania Reply

      My jeans are the Old Navy ones that I linked to in the blog post.

  5. Nice look today. I got my first puffer vest recently in a lovely raspberry color and I love it. As you said it’s perfect for keeping you warm but not hot. I want your gloves too. Thanks for sale info I still have few gifts to get. 🎄

    • Tania Reply

      I still have a few gifts to get ordered today too, Johnna!!! It is time to get busy.

    Cute look especially for a Saturday! And just so you know Ive been seeing your blog everyday!

    • Tania Reply

      Charlcy, there are days where the posts are randomly not showing up on some systems. I never know that has happened unless someone emails me. Then I have to go into GoDaddy and clear the Cache in the firewall in order to get those days posts to show. Crazy!

      No, I am sorry, Shelia. The gloves were purchased last year and I couldn’t find them online.

    • Tania Reply

      Deb, I bought that sweater several years ago at a boutique. I couldn’t find one similar online.

  7. I love this. This is my style. Jeans and a comfy shirt, throw on some boots and a vest for running around.

  8. Merry Christmas! Is your daughter home from Alaska for good? Know you’re enjoying have her home.
