50 IS NOT OLD | DENIM ON DENIM | FASHION OVER 40Hey everyone, I want you to meet Sage. I haven’t been around a horse in a very long time, and it was a little nerve-wracking being so close to such a large animal, especially one that just met me. Horses are so majestic, and I have been mesmerized by them since I was a child. I had ponies when I was young, and I loved riding them as often as I could. I can remember begging my dad to catch my pony and saddle him so that I could go riding for a little bit. Then, my grandparents bought horses (I have no idea why since they didn’t ride) and I would go down to their house and ride one of them.50 IS NOT OLD | DENIM ON DENIM | FASHION OVER 40 My grandparents named them after the characters on Bonanza. There was Adam, Hoss, and Little Joe, and Little Joe was my pick and the one that I would ride. Little Joe was the smallest of the three horses, but he was still way bigger than the ponies that I had been used to riding. Petting Sage brought back memories of Little Joe and my grandparents. I loved strolling down memory lane and thinking about all of the days and nights that I spent at their house. It reminded me that one day my grandchildren would be fondly thinking back on the time that they spent with me, at least I hope they will. Does anyone know where I can go and buy a horse? Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | DENIM ON DENIM | FASHION OVER 40When I thought about going to a horse show and what I would wear, the first thing that came to mind was denim. I did remember to pack my blue denim jacket which looked great at the horse barn, but it was not sufficient enough for the cold weather that had moved in. I have to admit that I was freezing in these photos, and as soon as my sister took the pictures, I grabbed the puffer coat and put it back on. Lol! However, if it hadn’t been in the low 30’s outside, this jacket would have been perfect. The classic denim jacket is great for a weekend look, and it is just a great when paired with a fancy dress.

50 IS NOT OLD | DENIM ON DENIM | FASHION OVER 40My graphic t-shirt says something about it being Monday and having long lashes. No, you are not confused, it is not Monday but the graphic t-shirt was cute, and I wanted to wear it. I added the Cambrie pearls because they had gold dangles that matched the gold in the graphic shirt. It might have been a stretch to wear this necklace to the horse show, but I liked the look.

50 IS NOT OLD | DENIM ON DENIM | FASHION OVER 40I think Sage admired my boot cut jeans and ankle boots. I picked a darker pair of jeans to wear with the medium color of the denim jacket. My sister informed me that she was not a fan of the denim on denim look. I informed her that since she dresses in all black that she probably didn’t have any experience in this area. Then, I apologized to her because she was not in all black at all, she had on blue jeans and a lilac hat. There is a reason that she is the writer and I am the blogger. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | DENIM ON DENIM | FASHION OVER 40Sage decided he liked me a little too much. He turned and came right toward me which tickled my niece, Rachel, but it startled me. Lol! I might have bribed him earlier with peppermint candy, and I think he must have thought that I had some more in my pockets.

    I like the outfit but would like jeans with no white stitching better.

      I think that every pair of boot cut jeans I own have white stitching.

  2. Your wardrobe selections are perfect for the horse barn. The horse is very majestic and your niece looks great riding. Enjoy your time with your sister!

      Sage was very majestic and I think he was a little mischievious also.

  3. I struggle with denim on denim but think as long as there is a contrast it is ok?

    • Tania Reply

      I see lots of bloggers wear denim on denim all the time. I am not sure there is a rule one way or the other. Wear what makes you happy.

  4. The necklace is perfect. I’m curious about the saying on your shirt. Care to share?

    Oh, and I ❤️ Lash Boost. Been using it since mid-December and have noticed a HUGE difference in my lashes!

    You are wearing the Canadian Tuxedo! Thats what we call it when you are wearing denim top and bottom! 😉

  6. I love denim on denim, you look really cute and what a great experience. Sally Bauman, I have never heard about the “Canadian Tuxedo” but will think of it every time from here on out when wearing denim on denim♡♡♡

  7. Lovely outfit on you Tania very flattering shoes off your lovely long legs lucky you 😃

  8. People always tell me “don’t wear denim on denim” but this outfit works for me. And I love the necklace with it. It’s totally you.

    I like the look & have worn that too! Cute shirt that fits you well! I grew up riding horses & having them, but I admit that I’m afraid of them now when I’m on the ground. They are SO big and unpredictable. One time my cousin was letting an old horse nuzzle his ear & all of a sudden the horse took a bite out of it and wouldn’t let go! Yikes! I did order the lash boost & my regular products yesterday. Hope I did it right & ordered under your name!

  10. I’ve loved denim forever. You look fabulous there and I love your jeans.. Denim can be so elegant and so casual.

  11. OMG, what a beautiful animal. Love the photos from the last few days.

  12. I am not a fan of denim on denim. I pair a denim jacket with either white jeans, khakis, or black jeans/pants. With a dress is good too. I know denim on denim is not taboo, it’s just not my taste. I loved the blue funnel neck top, went to order it and my size was sold out :(.

    I love denim and pearls! One of my favorite looks. And the horsie seemed to agree!

  14. Who doesn’t love denim? It always looks good and I love that you paired it with that necklace! 😊

  15. I love denim and I have 2 oversized denim shirts and 1 denim jacket that I wear with jeans. Denim is so versatile – love it!
