50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40Usually, I get to spend a lot of time with my granddaughter, Emersyn, because she lives next door and because she thinks that my house if fun. Honestly, I have no idea what she finds fun at my house since we don’t do anything special. But, her little brother hardly ever comes to visit, at least not by himself.
50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40 Little man is a mama’s boy. He loves his mom and doesn’t want out of her sight most of the time. My son messaged me last night to see if I could babysit little man while they took Miss E to the dentist. I was thrilled but also a little bit apprehensive because I wasn’t sure how he would react. Then, this morning, my son messaged and told me that little man was also sick with a cough and runny nose and said that he wasn’t feeling great. I was nervous after hearing that. I could see him crying for hours which would make his nose run worse and then he would start coughing. Why do we always conjure up the worst-case scenario? None of that happened? Instead, he was an angel and sweet as he could be. Miss E is a little spitfire, but little man is so laid back and quite. They are as different as daylight and dark. The funny thing is that they are just like my Ashleigh and Joseph. She was the oldest and the spitfire while Joseph is the laid back and easy going one. I guess there is another generation of Stephens’ carrying on the family tradition. Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40Today, I am styling another old outfit. The top, pants, and shoes are items that I have had for at least a year. But, I am adding a few accessories that will freshen up the look and help it to look alive and vibrant. This simple short sleeve sweater in probably 5-7 years old, but I still like the bright color, so it somehow stays in my closet when I go through purges. Lol!


50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40These white dress crop pants can be worn all spring and summer. Even though the material is on the dressier side, I can still wear this in a casual look also. A denim jacket, instead of the scarf, and a pair of leather sneakers would have completely changed the look of these pants. All you need to do is think outside of the box. As someone mentioned yesterday, we tend to become creatures of habit. Let your habit become to try something different every time instead of always reaching for the same items over and over and over again. Surprise yourself with your creativity!

50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40These floral pumps are a pair that I bought from Old Navy last year. I liked them because of the pretty print, but also because of the wide variety of colors. These can go with a wide assortment of colors and always dress up the look.
50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40Isn’t this the cutest little wristlet? I love all of the colors, and I love the fun tassels too. I bought this to take on my trip to Los Cabo next week, but this will be adorable to carry anywhere. Trend alert: raffia and straw bags are huge this year!!! You won’t believe the price, check it out HERE.
50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40I am a scarf gurl! I love adding scarves to my outfits because they are a quick and easy statement that doesn’t have to cost a fortune. What was the first thing that you noticed when you looked at this outfit? Was it the hot pink top, the white crop pants, or was it the spring colored scarf? This statement scarf cost me $7.99! Need I say more? Go here.
50 IS NOT OLD | FRESHENING UP AN OLD OUTFIT WITH ACCESSORIES | FASHION OVER 40I didn’t get a closeup of my earrings, but they are adorable. Handbags are not the only thing that is trending with raffia, so are earrings. I bought these earrings when I went on my trip to North Carolina last weekend from Jernigan’s, a boutique there in town. These will be going with me to Los Cabo also. I am linking a picture for you below so that you can see the earrings better.
