50 IS NOT OLD | DO I NEED A PINK HANDBAG | FASHION OVER 40The sun came out, and the rains finally stopped. But, dang, those March winds have been blowing like crazy! The cushions in the chairs got blown out into the yard, the garbage cans got blown over, and the sticks and limbs have blown off the trees. My back patio has looked horrible all winter long, and it finally got to me this weekend. I told Joe that I was going to spend two hours cleaning on the patio. After he recovered, he said to me that he doubted that two hours would even make a dent in the mess.
50 IS NOT OLD | DO I NEED A PINK HANDBAG | FASHION OVER 40 The sticks were everywhere! My rear is hurting today from bending over and picking the limbs up and putting them into a wheelbarrow. The limbs are the little kind that comes from my Willow tree, so I only picked up the larger ones. Then, I had Joe start the leaf blower so that I could blow the leaves and the smaller limbs out into the yard. It is the gas kind, and that thing weighs a ton. Today, I feel like my arms are made of spaghetti, but at least the patio looks so much better. I can’t wait for the weather to get a tiny bit warmer so that I can sit out in the afternoons around the firepit. I tried to talk Joe into going outside Saturday night. He told me that I was crazy because I would have to dress in arctic wear. Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | DO I NEED A PINK HANDBAG | FASHION OVER 40This gingham top (here) screams spring. I bought this when I was in the Atlanta area visiting my sister. My daughter and I went shopping, and I only bought a couple of things; this cute top was one of them. It is from Express, and when I bought it, I had in mind to wear it with white shorts in the summer. However, the other day I pulled it out of the closet and decided to see how it would look with jeans. I liked the front tie look and the dolman sleeves, but the top is a too low cut for me, so I added a white lace camisole under it for extra coverage.

50 IS NOT OLD | DO I NEED A PINK HANDBAG | FASHION OVER 40Today, I have on this months Plunder Posse set. This set came with the three strands delicate necklace, these multi-hoop earrings, and another pair of small earrings that I haven’t shown. I just opened this set the day before I put on this top, so I was happy to see that the blue beads matched the top so well. The Posse is a monthly subscription service that costs $25.00 per month which included shipping and tax. You will receive between 1 to 3 pieces each month, and it is mailed on the same date that you join the service. There is no enrollment fee, and you can unenroll at any time. So, if one month the Posse is not your style, you can stop the service and re-enroll the next month. However, there is a reward program for those who receive the Posse for three months in a row. You will receive $20.00 coupon after three continuous months, and a $30.00 coupon after six continuous months. This is truly an awesome deal! Click here to join Plunder Posse.
50 IS NOT OLD | DO I NEED A PINK HANDBAG | FASHION OVER 40First off, I know that for a lot of you, distressed jeans are a big fat NO! I understand how you feel, but I love the look. I think it is cute, relaxed, and stylish all at the same time. This pair has more distressing than I normally like, but the fringe at the hemline is what called my name. Turning the hem up to make a cuff is the way that I prefer to wear these jeans. This style reminds me of being on a deserted island. Lol! I am not sure if the “castaway” look is one that you are looking for, but this suits me. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | DO I NEED A PINK HANDBAG | FASHION OVER 40This bright pink leather tote by Vera Bradley sure adds a pop of color to the all blue look. When I first bought this bright handbag, I was afraid that I wouldn’t carry it enough to justify the price. I was wrong! I love this bag, and I carry it with a wide variety of clothing. I treat it like I would a neutral, even though that sounds crazy. I don’t try only to carry the bag when I have an outfit on that has pink as part of the design. I bet that you would surprise yourself with a bag like this, think outside the box.

50 IS NOT OLD | DO I NEED A PINK HANDBAG | FASHION OVER 40Last night, I grilled out for Joe and watched the moon as it was playing peek-a-boo with the clouds. It was gorgeous and peaceful. I enjoyed just standing there, looking up, and admiring His handiwork.

      Thanks!!! I love this pink bag, it seems to go with almost anything!

      I actually bought a light pink Coach bag and cannot wait until it is warm to use it!

  1. I ordered the Plujnder posse last month because I loved your necklace and earrings. This month, I’ve been having problems with PayPal but I finally got the order to go through. Then, they refunded my money! No communication, no explanation. I’m going to email them to try to find out why they refunded it. I’m completely confused 🙁

    • Update… I emailed them and my email was returned as undeliverable.

      Deb, if you signed up for it once, then the payment is automatic each month. You wouldn’t have to go in and pay again. Maybe they refunded it because it went through twice.

      Mary, these were by a brand called Sneak Peek. I had never heard of them before.

  4. I like the jewelry. Think I’ll try the Plunder Posse deal. I prefer necklaces like you are wearing here and the earrings are my style too. Love the pink purse but still can’t do the jeans. But you make a very cute castaway. Lol!

      Johnna, you crack me up sometimes. I’ll get you in a pair of distressed jeans…eventually! Lol! Remember, you were skeptical about R+F also, and now look at how you love the products!

    Love the jewelry. Just went in and signed up. Love the pink bag with the blue. You always look so put together.

  6. Girl, we all need a pink handbag, infact you inspired me to get one. I changed over to pink this morning. Have a great day!

    • Tania Reply

      Way to go, Beckie! I bet you will love carrying it today.

  7. I have a bright pink purse I dig out usually in the Spring around Easter. One thing I do want to know is where did you get your shoes? Those are awesome!

    • Tania Reply

      Theresa, these crochet wedge shoes are an older pair c/o Nina Shoes! I love them and I wear them often in the spring and summer.

    Cute outfit but I especially love the purse and shoes 🙂 I plan on looking for a new Spring purse this week and have had pink in mind for a while now. Hope you have a great week!

    I like that top a lot, but I’m not a fan of the distressed jeans. I can’t bring myself to pay for something that looks like it’s ready for the rag bag! Ha!

  10. Loved your whole Outfit, that’s my kind of look.
    The Pink purse just made it Pop !!

  11. I love the look! I love the jeans! I’m not sure if I could wear them, but they look so good on you I’m considering giving them a try. Thanks!

  12. Great combination loving the pink and blue. Only 2 weeks and we will be in the USA, can’t wait to find time to pop into an Old Navy and other shops you have mentioned. Love – Jill x

  13. I love the jeans I bought me some and was thinking about taking them back until I see you with them on , I bought the bombshell skinny jeans from torid they feel so good

      I am so glad that you decided to keep them, Kathy. You will feel so young and cute in them when you wear them.
