50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING FLATS WITH JEANS | FASHION OVER 40I can’t believe that I am going to say this….again. I am on the road today. Is that starting to sound like a broken record or maybe like the movie, “Groundhog Day” where the same thing keeps happening over and over and over? For someone who never traveled much and was more a homebody, I sure have been putting in the miles lately. Today I am headed to the Atlanta area to visit for a few days with my sista!50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING FLATS WITH JEANS | FASHION OVER 40 I can’t wait to have a little sister time; we don’t get to see each other near enough. Although, we do talk on the phone almost daily, and according to our husbands, waaaay too much. Lol! I can usually hear her husband in the background asking who she is talking to, and when she answers that it is me, then he will say, “Is this the third or fourth time that you have talked to her today?” Do you detect a little jealousy there? I detect jealousy too, and not only with her husband, but Joe is also about the same way. I believe they think that we should talk to “them” more. Lol! Have you ever tried talking to your husband? Does yours hear what you are saying because I know that my husband pays me no attention when I am talking? I think that he hears, blah, blah, blah. Lol!!! Please, tell me that I am not the only one whose husband is like that. Hahaha!50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING FLATS WITH JEANS | FASHION OVER 40 Since I am traveling, I am dressing for comfort. I bought this striped wide neck top from Old Navy back about a month ago. I like stripes, and this one had a unique detail, see picture below. I like to have a few very causal items in my closet that I can throw on with jeans and head out the door, but I also want to repurpose that same item later for a nicer look. With this top, I can see wearing it with a blazer, a pair of white pants, or maybe with a different pair of jeans and a pair of high heels. That would change the look of the top completely. Remember, you never have to keep an item in only one style category.

50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING FLATS WITH JEANS | FASHION OVER 40Here was the unique detail that I was talking about. The only thing that I might not like about this is the knot which might show under a blazer. I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING FLATS WITH JEANS | FASHION OVER 40 The light was shining in on my porch, and it made it hard to see the print on my flats by Michael Kors. I have a roof over my porch which is usually great for taking photos, but today the sun still was too bright on the bottom half of my outfit. I darkened the photo so that you can see that I am wearing the Michael Kors Fulton Moc in the logo print. I saw that some people questioned about the size, so I wanted to let you know that I am wearing my normal size and it fits great.50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING FLATS WITH JEANS | FASHION OVER 40 The Alina pull-on skinny jeans by NYDJ was my choice for the day. I thought the lighter color would show off the darker top better. I love these jeans, and I have them in a darker color also. The exclusive lift-tuck technology helps flatten the tummy and lift the rear. This pair of jeans fits snug and is flattering. The website says that you might want to size down a size since the jeans can stretch, but I bought my normal size, and I am happy with it. Here is the link. 

50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING FLATS WITH JEANS | FASHION OVER 40I am not sure what type people you think join Rodan + Fields, but I bet the answer would shock you. Yes, there are a lot of stay-at-home moms in R+F, but there are a ton of professional people involved also. These are the type of person that you would never think would join a direct sales company, but R+F is different. It has the credibility that no other direct sales company can match, at least IMHO. I am looking at just one professional segment today…nurses. Nurses love helping others; it is in their blood. I am going to link to several stories from nurses about why they joined Rodan + Fields. If any of these stories spark an interest in you, send me an email to fiftyisnotold@gmail.com, and we will hop on the phone with EBF today!

    No, you aren’t alone…..my husband doesn’t listen either! It’s like talking to a brick wall! Lol!
    You look cute and comfy….safe travels!

    No your husband is not the only one that does those things. Trust me. My sister lives almost two hrs from me, when we talk on the phone I get the same treatment. He asks me all of the time, didn’t you just talk to her?. What do you two have to say? He laughs.

    No you are not the only one whose husband does not hear her
    even after he has bought the most expensive hearing aid at your suggestion!!!

  6. That’s my kind of outfit. You look cute and comfy! My husband always thinks I am on the phone too long with my sister too but when he talks to his brother they’re on the phone forever. Lol

  7. I love the spring looks but it will be weeks before I go out in flats here in South Dakota! 3 degrees today🥶

  8. I have 3 sisters and when one calls we can be on phone for over an hour. But I don’t see her often and it’s good to catch up. Enjoy time with yours. Like those jeans. Going to have to get me a pair. 😊

    How blessed you are to have both a husband who cares & a sister who wants to talk to you 3-4 times a day! Enjoy the trip!

    You look perfect for a road trip…casual and comfortable. Your shorter hairdo is very cute. Mine is getting pretty long and I wonder if I should cut it. Don’t want to be accused of being ” mutton passing for lamb”.

  11. You look really cute today. You mentioned in your organizing shape wear. Do you usually wear shapewear for your daily photos?

  12. Your are not alone. My husband doesn’t listen either. Then he tells me I didn’t tell him something.
