50 IS NOT OLD | HIGH WAIST EQUALS AN ELONGATED LOOK | FASHION OVER 40The neverending task os organizing is still going strong. Heaven help me, ladies, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I know that I have more than enough clothing for three people, but remember that my “job” requires me to have a lot of different items. Just think how bored all of you would be if I only had a small capsule wardrobe. There are only so many ways to wear 20 pieces of clothing before you start saying, “I’ve seen that before.”50 IS NOT OLD | HIGH WAIST EQUALS AN ELONGATED LOOK | FASHION OVER 40I was stuck on the phone this morning for over an hour talking to Verizon Wireless. I am not sure why my data plan is all of a sudden not large enough since my daughter came back to the lower 48. I guess there was something to be said for having her out in the wilderness with no data capability. Lol! I have seriously threatened her if she doesn’t cut back until my new Unlimited plan can take effect on the 14th. Anyway, I decided to start going through my walk-in-closet while I was talking and take out the items that I was going to give away, donate, or sale. I sent my sister a before and after picture, and she couldn’t tell the difference. Then I sent her a photo of all the clothes that I had taken out of it, and she was floored!!! Now, I need to get all of them off of the hangers, and into bags. I piled them all on my bed, and I can’t go to bed until they are cleared off. Lol!!!50 IS NOT OLD | HIGH WAIST EQUALS AN ELONGATED LOOK | FASHION OVER 40 It is still pretty outside, but it is a tad cooler than it was yesterday. Days like today call for a cardigan. Cardigans are so handy for adding a small amount of warmth without smothering you to death. I also like how they slim you down, at least visually, and are flattering to wear. I am not sure the exact color of this cardigan, it is one that I have had for a while. I am going to call it brick, or maybe I will call it Tania’s kitchen. It is the exact color of my kitchen. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | HIGH WAIST EQUALS AN ELONGATED LOOK | FASHION OVER 40The Italy necklace and the Delaney earrings are probably my favorite items from this last catalog from Plunder. This is a real statement set and will draw everyone’s attention to your face. The cream flowers have crystal centers, and they are on a gold link chain that adjusts up to 24 inches. This is one purchase that you will not regret; it is beautiful. To purchase Plunder Design, go here.50 IS NOT OLD | HIGH WAIST EQUALS AN ELONGATED LOOK | FASHION OVER 40 These pants are new, and I just got them this last week. They are a high waist pant with a sash-tied belt. The flowy legs combined with the high waist elongate your legs. The pant is machine washable, and I bought my normal size, and it fits great. They come in three different colors; the navy, a black, and a bright fuschia. Are there any brave gurls out there who will order the fuschia??? Here is the link. 50 IS NOT OLD | HIGH WAIST EQUALS AN ELONGATED LOOK | FASHION OVER 40I bought my printed blouse on a trip to Alaska to visit my daughter. I liked the dainty floral print and the small amount of detail that went down the center of the top. The top has a romantic vibe to it, and it looks very feminine. This top is sleeveless, but since I paired it with a cardigan, I can wear it all year around. Extending your clothing into different seasons is easy if you think outside of the box.

50 IS NOT OLD | HIGH WAIST EQUALS AN ELONGATED LOOK | FASHION OVER 40I get asked a lot what my top seller is with Rodan + Fields. I don’t have specific data, but my feeling is that it might be Lash Boost. The next question is:

  1. Such a pretty blouse and wow! what a statement necklace. I know I have seen you wear this before but for some reason I like it more put together with what you are wearing today.

      Ye, I love this necklace and earrings set. I guess it is the neckline or the cream in the top that makes the necklace show up better today.

    I like this outfit very much. You look super slim & the print blouse/top lends the look of spring to the ensemble.

      Thanks, Patricia. It really makes your legs look like the go on forever.

    This is a great outfit on you! Looks very “put together”. Are you still getting Trunk Club? Haven’t heard you mention it lately.

    • Tania Reply

      I decided to stop the Trunk Club. My stylist changed and I wasn’t as happy, so I am now taking the time to order myself.

  4. Love the look and you look so slim. What’s your secret? Keep the blogs coming!

    • Tania Reply

      Wow!!! Thanks, Diane. My secret is camouflage (cardigan helps) and posing positions. Lol!

  5. Putting all your clothes on your bed is one way to make sure you finish the task! Love hearing about your organization and purging. I watched 1 show of Maria Kondo on Netflix…….haha! Organization is like dieting for me, a life long journey!

      I couldn’t go to bed last night until I went in there are bagged everything up. It took me about an hour to get that done!

  6. I have always loved cardigans, (maybe it’s a Mr Rogers thing from my childhood) and you look beautiful in yours! I thought of you yesterday when shopping and bought a peach sweatshirt with little pompom fringe around the cuffs and bottom. I told my husband I thought it would be Tania approved as it is very soft, comfy and outside of the box for me!!

  7. I do admire how you are always so put together.. I really struggle with the smart casual look which is what I need for work and I work with a lot of young people whose staple wardrobe are leggings and hoodies so if I turn up wearing anything too dressy they think I have an interview for another job lol. In addition, the minute I try to change my look in any way I get hassle from my daughter who says I am either dressing too old or two young. I can’t win!!


  8. I love these pants on you and I think you’re right about the sweater elongating. Your necklace and earrings are also the perfect compliment. Have a great day! XO

    I’m proud of you for cleaning out your closets & drawers & some very lucky people are about to be the recipient of your cleaning mood! Good job, Tania! I too am a huge fan of lash boost as my eyelashes have always been too light & too think to notice. But w/Lash Boost now I have long pretty eyelashes too! And thanks for the cool special offer!

    You look amazing! Those pants are so feminine and I think you could really pull off the fuschia pair – they’re gorgeous!
