50 IS NOT OLD | WHY DO YOU WANT A SLIM FITTING TOP | FASHION OVER 40There are some days when you should have stayed in bed. I know all of you have had one or two of these type days and my most recent one was last Friday. I had a ton of things to do on Friday, and by the end of the day, I was thrilled to fall into bed finally. I was traveling to the Atlanta area to visit my sister, so I started the day off by trying to get everything packed and loaded into my car. I am one of those people who will wait until the morning I am leaving before I pack. I take a picture every day if possible, so I have to pack several outfits and pick out the jewelry and shoes also.50 IS NOT OLD | WHY DO YOU WANT A SLIM FITTING TOP | FASHION OVER 40 I packed everything and got the car loaded when my daughter called. She decided to meet me at my sisters which was fabulous. However, she also decided that I needed to pack and load a lot of her things and bring them to her. She has been living with my mom and dad and wanted more of her things. By the time she finished with her list of things she wanted me to do, I was pooped. My car wouldn’t hold everything without me taking Emersyn’s car seat out of the back seat. I finally pulled and tugged until I got the seat unbuckled and started taking it out. The car seat is huge and weighs a lot, so I was having a little trouble getting it out of the car. I was backing up, and the next thing I knew, I had backed up into a broken Foo Dog that we had replaced the other day. Joe had put my new Foo Dog by the door, and he had moved the broken one to the side to throw away. I backed up and fell backward over the Foo Dog and fell on my rear into a rose bush and a puddle of water. I had to go in and change clothes before I could even leave. Finally, once I got on the road, I decided to take a shortcut to make up some time since I kept having delays. I should have known better! It was a two-lane road, and I got behind a semi coal truck….going SIX miles an hour. That was about the time when I started laughing and decided to play like Elsa and “Let It Go!” I’ll get there when I get there was my new attitude, and amazingly, after that, the day seemed to get better.50 IS NOT OLD | WHY DO YOU WANT A SLIM FITTING TOP | FASHION OVER 40 It was freezing at the horse show that I attended, and I hadn’t packed for the arctic tundra. My sister gave me a jacket to throw on, and I stopped and bought a pair of gloves. But, you know me, I found a place to shop even at the horse show. LOL! I bought this Noble Outfitters Cozy Cowl Neck Fleece top, and it was so soft and warm. It is an equestrian brand, but anyone can wear this. The rear hem is longer for extra coverage when you are sitting which will eradicate any “plumber’s crack” looks. Hahaha! I like the slim fit design because that helps to keep the cold weather from touching your skin.50 IS NOT OLD | WHY DO YOU WANT A SLIM FITTING TOP | FASHION OVER 40 And, you can see that it also comes with the thumb slits to keep the sleeves in place. This feature is great if you wear a coat or jacket over the top. I don’t have any jewelry on except for my Tessie earrings. I forgot all of my earrings that I had laid out to bring with me; they are still on my dresser at home. But, the Tessie earrings go perfectly with this top because of the rope cord that is at the neckline. It is almost like I did that on purpose. Lol! I love happy little accidents like that.50 IS NOT OLD | WHY DO YOU WANT A SLIM FITTING TOP | FASHION OVER 40 You can see from my hair that it was a little windy as well as cold. I have on the same (dusty) boots that I wore in yesterday’s post, so go check that out if you are interested in finding others like them. I am wearing a pair of skinny jeans from Old Navy. I like buying any of my “trendy” jeans from Old Navy because they are affordable. I realize that a trend might not be in fashion but three to five years, so I don’t want to spend a fortune on them. There are a wide variety of styles at Old Navy which is categorized by body type making it easier to figure out which one will fit you best. Go here to shop for their jeans. 50 IS NOT OLD | WHY DO YOU WANT A SLIM FITTING TOP | FASHION OVER 40Don’t forget that I am offering all of you a Valentines Day deal on Lash Boost.

    Love everything about your outfit. I agree that style of top is very slimming and keeps you warm!

  2. As Always, you look SO NICE! The top makes you look SO thin and the blue is a great color for you!
    I’m in my early 70’s and you are such an inspiration! Thank You!

    Well you did it again, Now I have to have this top. LOL! It looks so comfortable and so stylish.

  4. The perfect weekend outfit! Well if I’m being honest, it’s perfect for most of my days. 🙂

    I’m beginning to think the Foo dog statues are not your friends. But you look great.

  6. You are such an inspiration! I can totally identify with your incident. The older I get, the more I seem to have days like that!😂 Time with family is priceless.

  7. I love this top but wonder if It would look good on me since I am busty. Would your daughter wear this?

      Pat, my daughter has several tops made like this one. She even mentioned that as soon as she saw mine.

  8. Cute, comfy outfit and I LOVE your hair, it looks great even even if its windy!

  9. Love the top and whole look. It’s getting pinned. That’s what I wear most days to be honest. Your story was funny (in hindsight for you) and I hate days like that. The more you hurry the worse it gets. “We’ll get there when we get there” is our mantra when traveling. Otherwise we’re stressed whole time. And I agree with Cheryl, the Foo Dog may not be so lucky for you. Lol!

      I told Joe that I might have to get rid of the Foo Dogs. I am beginning to wonder about them too. Lol!

  10. I was thinking when I read your post a few days ago and you mentioned your upcoming trip to Atlanta, you should know the weather was turning cold again. I live in North Georgia. You were wearing the striped top with the cutout in the back….a top I’d probably choose for warm weather. I like your cozy top today. Next time I’ll give you a heads up 😊

    You look great!! Could you do a post on your weight loss journey and exercise routine?

    • Tania Reply

      Sandra, I wish that I had something to tell you. However, I don’t have a routine but I hope to get one soon.

  12. Tania that top looks great on you! what a great find. I found the cutest unique sweater in the hospital gift shop when my husband was having surgery yesterday! I was happy to have a little shop to pass the time and thrilled to find something special. (and thrilled that everything went excellent in surgery)

  13. Tania, you always look great and I get such s kick out of your posts!
