50 IS NOT OLD | CHRISTMAS EVE AND VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS | FASHION OVER 40Oh my goodness, it is finally here! It is Christmas Eve, and tonight all of the little children will be going to bed early. And all the parents said, Amen! Lol! Christmas Eve is one of the only nights of the year when you don’t have to fight with children about what time bedtime is. They willingly take a bath and head off to bed early. Getting them into bed is the easy part but getting them to go to sleep is a different matter. It is too hard for them to shut down their excitement for what the next day will bring.50 IS NOT OLD | CHRISTMAS EVE AND VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS | FASHION OVER 40 I am not sure if visions of sugar plums are dancing in Emersyn’s head or if she is deciding to steal my tree. Haha! She thought the red petal tree was too cute and by the time she got through playing with it, there might be a few petals that need to be reattached. One of the petals would fall off, and she would look at me so surprised. It was like she didn’t figure out that “she” was what was making the petals fall off. Lol! A quick plugin of the glue gun and Nee Nee can fix that!50 IS NOT OLD | CHRISTMAS EVE AND VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS | FASHION OVER 40 My little blonde mini-me was ready for a fashion shoot after we got home from church and lunch. It was warmer than it had been for a while, so we didn’t have to wear a heavy coat. I took advantage of the weather and wore a short sleeve plush swing dress from Old Navy. I don’t put my short sleeved items away when winter hits. Instead, I add a sweater or a coat to them and extend the time that I can wear them. I love a swing dress because it hides a lot of body issues, such as a thick waist. Those of you who are larger chested might want to choose a different style. You would need something that defines your waist so that you look curvy.

50 IS NOT OLD | CHRISTMAS EVE AND VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS | FASHION OVER 40I almost feel guilty showing you my jewelry since all of it was a special offer and is no longer available. The necklace and earrings were December’s Plunder Posse set for the month. My order is set to ship on the first of every month so that I can get it as soon as possible to show it to you on the blog. However, this set sold out before it even made it to my mailbox. I have never seen that happen before!!! Here is a short video that will tell you about the Posse subscription and you can message me if you have any questions. Plunder Design jewelry is very well made and very affordable which is why I love their items. I can splurge on myself and not feel guilty at all. Lol! To place an order, go here, hit the shop button, pick a party with my name in it, and have fun looking at all of the beautiful jewelry.50 IS NOT OLD | CHRISTMAS EVE AND VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS | FASHION OVER 40 Emersyn thought you might like to see HER Plunder necklace. She is wearing the Rosie necklace that has a pearl chain and pearls in three different designs. I love that Plunder has started carrying some jewelry for children. Emersyn and Matti B are both getting pieces for Christmas. Both of my granddaughters love dressing up and having jewelry to call their own. 50 IS NOT OLD | CHRISTMAS EVE AND VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS | FASHION OVER 40 Adding a cardigan is essential if you are going to wear short sleeves in the winter. They are perfect for adding some warmth and also for keeping people from looking at you like you have lost your mind. Haha! I love finding a cardigan that has several colors in it so that it can match more things.

50 IS NOT OLD | CHRISTMAS EVE AND VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS | FASHION OVER 40Emersyn and I are wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas Eve, and I hope you have sweet dreams of sugar plums and gumdrops!
