50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING SHORTS OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40I was thrilled with everyone’s comments on yesterday’s post? It was a blast working with little Miss Emersyn on our mommy and me outfits. At first, she was excited about doing the post, but then the child in her came out, and she wanted to play instead of putting on a dress. I coaxed and pleaded until she finally got dressed and then she was okay. She posed and smiled so sweet that I was almost shocked at how easily the session went. And then…..
50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING SHORTS OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40I didn’t go through the entire bag that I had gotten from Dress Barn when it came. Instead, I reached in and grabbed the dresses while I crossed my fingers that they would fit. I didn’t remember picking out the cute I Love You duo necklace, so I took pictures with us wearing different necklaces. Emersyn had already put her play clothes back on when I found the duo necklaces, and she was none too happy when I told her that we had to take the pictures all over again. Lol! You sure couldn’t tell from the pictures, but she was not a happy camper for the second shoot. I think that I am going to try and talk her mommy into getting Emersyn her own blog where she could style children’s clothing. That would be a fantastic thing for her, so help me come up with a name for the blog. In case you were wondering, here is a photo of the other necklaces that we wore.50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING SHORTS OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40 Both of our necklaces are discontinued from Plunder, but any pearl necklace would work for this look.
50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING SHORTS OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40When you carry your weight in your mid-section, you get good at finding items that will camouflage that area. I thought that the tie-front top would draw attention to my mid-section, but what it does is create a slimming effect with the pulling of the material. The material is pulled inward, so your eye is drawn inward, which makes your waist seem smaller, and the v-neckline helps too. How weird is that? I am trying to watch what I eat, and I have started walking some, but until my waist shrinks, I will be using clothing to create the desired look. This top is in twilight blue, but it also comes in black and lavender. The top is machine washable, and I am wearing a size medium which fits perfectly. Here is the link to the top.
50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING SHORTS OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40The earrings, necklace, and bracelet are all part of the new spring and summer line from Plunder. The earrings are Taelynn, and they are both gold and silver. I love the design of these earrings, but I have no idea what it is called. The necklace is the Zara. I like the silver lariat style of this necklace. You thread the link through the circle to create the look. It is super easy to put one since there are no clasps involved. And, my silver link bracelet is the MadiJeanne. I wear two other silver bracelets daily on my other arm, but they are from Tiffany & Co. Here is the bead bracelet and here is the cuff.50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING SHORTS OVER 40 | FASHION OVER 40 The medallion print shorts are the perfect length. These have a 7″ inseam, so they are the baby bear of shorts. They are not too long, or not too short; they are just right. Lol! These are a twill material with 2% spandex to help them fit comfortably. Plus, as a bonus, they are machine washable. I am wearing my usual size 10, and they fit true to size. Here is the link to these medallion print shorts.

    If you can’t lose it , tan it and dress it nice!

      That’s a good one. I am going to compile a list and then see if they are available.


    I loved that dress from Dress Barn so much that I went online and bought one for myself. I know I wont look as good in it as you do but you inspire me to try new things. I have never shopped at Dress Barn before but with the 50 off discount I ended up buying 3 shirts, that dress, and some earring for $100.00. Now I just pray that they look OK on me. Thanks for the inspiration every day.

      That was a fantastic deal, Maureen!!! Good luck with the fit.

  3. You look great in blue! Tania, what regimen did you start out with with the R&F?

    • Tania Reply

      Thanks, Debbie. I do love wearing blue!!! I started out with Reverse because I was wanting to address the sun damage, aka age spots, that was on my face. That is the regimen that convinced me to become a consultant.

  4. I also carry my weight in my mid-section. It will be a warm welcome to see styles that work for my body type.

      I have found that a LOT of trial and error helps me to find the best styles for me.

      • Cute shorts, top! Beautiful color. At 73 (is not old) (ha) I’ve gone to capris totally. Enjoy all your colorful posts!

  5. I like the color of the top and you’re right about the shorts. They are the perfect length and vey pretty too. I really like the jewelry. Good idea about a blog for Emersyn. She’s so good at taking pictures and she couldn’t be cuter. “Miss E’s Styling for Kids”. That’s my contribution to your list.

  6. I love the close up photos of the jewelry today. =)
    Sweet and Sassy for blog title for Miss E

  7. Morning! I met a mutual friend last night – Rachel Coleman. We had an HOA meeting for our new community and I went over and introduced myself. We got to talking and she said she’s from Grundy so of course I shared that I follow your blog. She immediately sent you a Facebook friends request and went through everyone that you have in common and told me all about them. Such a small world! I just love your blog and the videos you share. I lived in Danville VA for 25+ years and feel like I grew deep roots in Southern VA.

      Oh my goodness, Joanne! That is crazy! Rachel sent me the friend request and it turns out that she is the sister-in-law to my neighbor. Talk about a small world!!!

    Living in Florida we wear shorts at any age! it’s too hot not to! But you do have to style them appropriately for the ages. Or wear sundresses.

  9. I like Margo’s suggestion of “Nevertooyoung,” but I like her calling Emersyn “Sweet E” even more! That’s a title that could grow with her. You two are so adorable!!!!!

    Cute shorts and top! Getting Miss E her own blog would be WAY more work for you, but too cool!
