50 IS NOT OLD | DRESSING FOR THE WEEKEND | FASHION OVER 40The weekend is finally here, and it is time to sit back and relax. Friday’s are one of my favorite days of the week, and not because it is the start of the weekend. I love it because I get to introduce all of you to a blogger friend! I almost always get an email from my highlighted blogger telling me how much that enjoyed meeting all of my readers. I feel like a proud mama bear when I get those messages. Lol! You are in for a real treat today. If you like my blog, then you are going to love Kay also.
50 IS NOT OLD | DRESSING FOR THE WEEKEND | FASHION OVER 40 Kay Harms is the blogger behind, Dressed for my dayI swear that she could be my younger sister. She is a blonde that loves wearing color, and her sweet personality comes through in every post. Originally from Georgia, her southern roots are still deep in her soul even though she now calls Arizona home. I know this because she prefers “sweet” tea. Lol! That is the mark of a true southern girl! She recently celebrated her one-year blogiversary, and she has accomplished so much in her first year! Like me, blogging was a “second act” and not what she initially thought that she would be doing. She laughs and says that the money her mother spent on modeling classes for her is now paying off. I tell my mother something similar; I say that all those years of me shopping at every store I saw was training for my career as a blogger. Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | DRESSING FOR THE WEEKEND | FASHION OVER 40Yesterday, I dressed in neutrals. So, today, I decided that we might need to liven up this party! After all, the weekend is coming, and we have some partying to do. Lol! Spring is here, but it is still chilly in a lot of the country, so a sweater is perfect at this time of the year. I bought this sweater a couple of years ago at Belk’s. You might have seen me wear this before (here) on the blog back in 2016. Wow! That seems like it has been a lifetime ago. Like the fun and playful print post (here) that I did this week, this sweater makes me smile. You would think that wearing this sweater might make me “crabby” instead. Haha!

50 IS NOT OLD | DRESSING FOR THE WEEKEND | FASHION OVER 40The Evette bracelet is the one in the middle with the large orange beads and the bright blue tassel. The two smaller orange and rhinestone bracelets are called the Nova. They put these on sale in the going, going, gone section and they got gone. Lol! I just got these in last week, and it is already sold out.
50 IS NOT OLD | DRESSING FOR THE WEEKEND | FASHION OVER 40Let me tell you a secret. I am not a fan of most flats when it comes to shoes. You are probably laughing right now saying, “that isn’t a secret.” Lol! The reason that I am not a fan is that I have a hard time finding “stylish” flats. The problem has been solved! I have slowly been purchasing a few shoes by Michael Kors, and I am becoming obsessed. The quality is fantastic, they are stylish, and I am going to mention the “C” word also…they are comfortable! I have heels, wedges, and flats and every pair is comfortable. I am seriously thinking about ordering the beige linen one below. The fact that they are on sale is twisting my arm. So far, I have ordered my normal size, and they have fit me perfectly.

50 IS NOT OLD | DRESSING FOR THE WEEKEND | FASHION OVER 40You can’t go wrong with jeans and a sweater. Jeans are my go-to clothing item because they can be worn with a t-shirt and sneakers, to a blazer and pumps. Depending on my mood, I can find something to wear with jeans. This pair is from Earl jeans, and I think that I bought them from Marshalls a couple of years ago. I like skinny jeans, but I also like flared jeans, so I guess that you can say that I like jeans. Lol!

  3. Orange is a favorite color of mine so this look is for me. I like the crab on your sweater too. Very whimsical. Orange and blue are also favorite combo of mine so two thumbs up! Wish I could make it to the event this weekend. Hope to see some pictures. I’m off to check out Kay’s blog.

  7. Hi, Tanya,
    Do you wear any sock shoe liners when you wear your flats? If so, can you recommend your brand? I don’t like to go sockless with my shoes and am on a search for liners that don’t slip off my heel (although I think they may be like unicorns and don’t really exist:). Love your outfit today!
    Thank you! Neta

    Oh my, that outfit is so “you”! So bright, cheery and stylin and I think that it is also so “me”! I love the crabby sweater w the bright orange color paired w the bright blue jeans and blue bag! But those earrings are to-die-for and you didnt say where you got them? Surely they are Plunder? Have a great time and your event today! You are Fabulous!

  14. Lord!! Bring those earrings with ya!! I love them!!!!!! See you soon and drive safe!!!

  15. Don’t like orange. Don’t wear orange. I absolutely would buy and wear that striped crabby orange top.
    I love the flats.
    You look great in this outfit from head to toe. I wear jeans non-stop and even to church though my mama raised me better. You can wear jeans anywhere with a great top, some jewelry or a scarf and a good pair of shoes.
