50 IS NOT OLD | A NEW SPIN ON A CURRENT TREND | FASHION OVER 40I am starting to get spoiled now since the sun has been out for three days in a row! I am beginning to stalk the weather channel for the upcoming 10-day forecast because it is a big week for me next week. I will have all of the grandbabies here, all five of them, and it is also Emersyn birthday. So, we have lots of swimming in the pool on the agenda, and I need the cooperation of the weather. Can you imagine the commotion of five grandbabies couped up in the house??? Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | A NEW SPIN ON A CURRENT TREND | FASHION OVER 40Last year when they were all here, we had a craft project to keep them occupied one day. We found some sea creatures that were easy to color, and the adults drew the pictures, and we let the children color them in with paint. After the canvases were all painted, we sprayed them with shellac clear sealer so that they would not fade or get dirty since I was hanging them in my pool house. I think they did an excellent job with all of the pictures, so maybe we need to see if we can expand on this theme. Here is the picture, after I finally got them hung up this year. Those are also their footprints in the “sand.” From left to right, you have Jett’s, Huttson’s, Emersyn’s, Matti’s, and Beckham’s.
50 IS NOT OLD | A NEW SPIN ON A CURRENT TREND | FASHION OVER 40This is another muted color top that I am loving. I am not sure when I fell in love with muted colors, but for now, these are something that I find myself reaching to put on. The leaf print design is everywhere in the stores, and I am sure that most of you have seen this print somewhere before. I like how this is not the traditional palm leaf or the bright green leaves that you usually see. The different shades of peach and gray are a different spin on the leaf design, and I like being different. I bought this at the Loft Outlet, and I also purchased this leafed top which was a different spin also. Here is the link to today’s top.

50 IS NOT OLD | A NEW SPIN ON A CURRENT TREND | FASHION OVER 40The Liesel leaf pendant is dainty. It sits in the void of my v-neck tops, which is a perfect length for me. I like that the necklace is gold, instead of it being a bright color like I see in the stores. By it being gold, I can wear it with a lot more options.
50 IS NOT OLD | A NEW SPIN ON A CURRENT TREND | FASHION OVER 40I have on three bracelets for today’s look. The white 2-strand bracelet is the Nevada. The Amazing Grace, gold and white bracelet, is from the Randee set, which includes four bracelets. The small gold beaded bracelet is part of the Stacia set, which is also a set of four.
50 IS NOT OLD | A NEW SPIN ON A CURRENT TREND | FASHION OVER 40White pants…you need them, take my word on this matter. I don’t care what brand you buy, but please at least try a pair if you haven’t already. They are crisp and clean looking, and they go with almost anything, so they are very versatile. I own so many pair of white items that I couldn’t even begin to tell you which pair that I am wearing. Lol! Here are a few that I like for you to look at. Also, the shoes that I am wearing, and have been wearing a lot lately, are also from the Loft Outlet. Here is the link to those.

50 IS NOT OLD | A NEW SPIN ON A CURRENT TREND | FASHION OVER 40When I went to visit my sister a couple of weeks ago, she decided that she wanted to do a podcast with me. She is always pushing me out of my comfort zone! Anyway, without her telling me what we were going to be talking about, she loaded up some app on her phone and proceeded to ask me questions. It was pretty fun doing that, and it was pretty funny too since it was our first time trying something like that. I have had a few people tell me that we sound alike, but I don’t hear that. Anyway, if you have nothing better to do, take a listen and tell me what you think. Click here. I can’t even listen to it because I hate hearing myself talk. Is anyone of you like that? I can’t believe that I sound like the recording sounds. Ugh, I sound so dorky!!!

      You are right, Nancy. I will be exhausted by the end of the week, but in the best kind of way.

      We really enjoyed doing the pictures last year. I need to go and buy some canvases for the coming week.

  1. Love the kids pictures on the bath house wall. Perfect place for them. Will their parents be there also or do you and Joe keep the kiddos by yourself? A pool in the backyard sounds like great entertainment and should tire them out for bed at nights 😉

      The parents will be here also! I am not sure that I could handle all of them by myself. Lol!

  2. Your outfit is so soft and pretty. Love the top! LOVE your grand children’s artwork! I would love to do that with my grand-daughter!

    Love the look house pictures, I’d definitely expand on them! I know you’ll enjoy your grands no matter the weather!

      We always have fun, but it is easier if the weather cooperates.

  4. Fun week coming up for you. I like the muted colors in the top. It’s more my speed than very bright colors. They look good on you too. I enjoyed the podcast. You both did good job.

      It is going to be a fun week coming up for you too, Johnna!!!

  5. Hi – I love the leaf top but not sure what bra I can wear with it…are you wearing a strapless? Thank you.

  6. This is so different from your usual styling outfits but, oh! my! You look wonderful! Love the soft colors with the white – looks so nice and cool!

      I agree, Diann. It is different from my normal brighter colors, but I love the soft look.
