50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40Happy Spring everyone! The spring flowers are starting to bloom, and the leaves are opening on the trees. The mountains around here are finally starting to look greenish again, and I am thrilled. It can be depressing when you only see brown when you look up into the mountains, but when the trees turn green, it is beautiful and lush!
50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40That is how I feel when spring finally is here. All winter long, I have been wearing grays, navy, black, etc., and now that spring is here, I am ready to start exploding with color! In the spring of the year, you will find more pastels that will eventually give way to the bright colors of summer. Then as fall starts to come into the picture, our color palette will stay vibrant, but more of a jewel tone. The final transformation will be winter, and we go to darks and muted colors. I never thought about our clothing choices having a “season,” but I guess they do.
50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40I am calling this my “Easter Egg” sweater. Lol! I think it is because of all of the pastel colors on the cardigan. Maybe, we should call it our “coat of many colors” instead. I am sure that is what Dolly Parton would call it. Lol!!! Striped cardigans are hitting the stores everywhere. Some are horizontal, and some are vertical, you need to pick the style that suits you best.

50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40All of you who love the look of a dainty necklace, you are going to love the Brinnley. It is 23-26 inches long with a dangling chain tassel from a tiny marbled stone bead. It is adorable and feminine.
50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40I also added the Tanesha bracelet bangle set. This is a set of three acrylic bangles; each has a tortoiseshell design on one side and a pastel color on the other side. I love this set, but I am pretty sure that I saw that it is being discontinued. If this is something that you have had on your “wish” list, then you better grab it before the new items launch in April, and it goes away for good.
50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40Over the weekend, we were discussing wearing flats, high heels, and wedges. I mentioned that I had been told that the wedge shoe was easier to wear than a high heel shoe. My Energizer Bunny Friend informed me that she had been hurt twice because she was wearing a pair of wedge type shoes. Lol! I must be lucky because I wear wedge shoes all the time and I have no problem. However, when you are wearing the platform style shoe, you do have to be careful. You are higher off of the ground, and if you turn your ankle, you can be hurt. I know someone who hurt themselves wearing flats by turning their ankle on a sidewalk. Be careful ladies, and please don’t try to chew gum at the same time. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40I wanted to add a darker pair of jeans to this look since the sweater was all pastel colors. By adding the darker jean, it let the pastels shine. I have on my Diana, Kut From The Kloth skinny jeans that I purchased over a year ago. These have become a go-to pair for me because I love the fit and the deep color that has not faded with time. These are still on sale for under 40 bucks!!! Here is the link for the regular and here is the link for the plus!
50 IS NOT OLD | EASTER COLORS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40I had two lovely ladies who came to meet me this past weekend. Joni drove an hour and a half and brought her friend, and 90-year-old mom with her. She was so cute, and had to facetime her friend and rub it in a little. Lol! We laughed and had a great time. And, Barbara came from Pennsylvania with her husband. She and her husband happened to be visiting her daughter who lives in a neighboring town, so they all popped in to say hello. The hubby wasn’t near as thrilled to meet and talk; all he wanted was to leave and go to eat. Lol! Barb, however, was interested in R+F and had a lot of questions. She is now my newest business partner!!! Barb had all of the same fears that you and I had. She said that she is afraid of failure; I was too. She said that she wasn’t a salesperson, and neither was I. She said that she doesn’t have a huge network of friends, and I was the same way. We are all more alike than you think, but the difference is that Barb and I said yes anyway. We are doing it scared! If you are afraid but still interested, then message me. Just for sending me a message to fiftyisnotold@gmail.com, I will send you a gift.

  1. We definitely have seasons for clothes where I live in Canada. Winter is long and often cold and drab and we tend to wear a lot of brown, black and gray which drives me mad by now! I can’t wait to break out the colours of spring! Silly isn’t it? Just when we need colour we dont wear it.

      Janet, I love that phrase; “break out the colors of spring.” That is exactly how I feel when winter is finally over.

      Kim, you are so sweet!!! Plus, you can keep repeating yourself anytime. Lol! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to leave a comment.

    • Beautiful colors and neat shoes. So ready for pastels and sandals in KY! Your post is always my first read in the mornings.

  3. I want to know about the navy polka dot that you’re wearing! Is that a dress?

    • Tania Reply

      Sharon, yes, it is a dress. I will have that on the blog soon!

  4. Congrats to Barb! I’m so ready for light layered clothing, too! We’ve only had a few days I can wear open toe shoes, but boy am I ready to get rid of the booties!!

      Susanne, the weather is getting warmer every day. You betting be getting the toes painted. Lol!

    Cute outfit! What’s funny is that as I was looking at the sweater the word Easter Egg popped into my mind and then as I scrolled down I saw that you are calling it your Easter Egg sweater lol 🙂

    • Tania Reply

      Great minds, Kelly!!! I didn’t think that when I bought the sweater, but as soon as I saw the photos, that was the first thing that came to mind.

  6. You are well prepared for Easter with a cardigan in all those colours. I would name it a dolly mixture cardigan. So bright and cheerful. Love – Jill x

  7. I didn’t see a link to the sweater – is it the first one in the examples you gave? I clicked on it and it took me to Amazon, but said it can’t be delivered until mid-April, and it will be too warm here in NC for a sweater by then. Love the pastels for spring though, I just bought a light yellow long, sheer cardigan for spring!

  8. I usually like most of your outfits. This sweater seems to cut up your silouette into pieces. I like some of your other outfit much better. The colors are very pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  9. This note is about the blush sweater & shoes you bought at Target. I don’t normally wear blush or pale pink because it is so close to my skin tone, but I really liked your outfits, so I bit the bullet & ordered both sweater & shoes. When it came, I realized I had a similar color sweater years ago but only wore in with the suggested blouse.

    Oh my goodness, this sweater goes with at least 1/3 of my tops! And looks good as long as I have something brighter near my face. (I even have a similar scarf to the one you wore.) I was stunned that blush works with some of my orange tops! Really! So the sweater is on my list to wear to a wedding shower in April!

    The shoes are comfy & neutral but I’ll need really good arch supports to wear them very much. They went on so easily (over socks!) that I think I could probably wear a half size smaller. Still deciding.

    So thank you for helping me to push out of my comfort zone! I love to hear from you every day.

      Jeannie, I held my breath when I first started reading the post. I was so afraid that you were going to tell me that you didn’t like the items. Lol! Whew! I am so glad that you stepped out of your comfort zone and actually liked it!!!

I would love to hear from YOU!
