50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR CUFFED JEANS WITH ANKLE BOOTS | FASHION OVER 40We had elections here in Virginia yesterday. I don’t know if everyone had elections throughout the US, but we had a lot of local elections here in the county. I could never run for public office; I am too big a coward. There can only be one winner, so someone has to lose. That would kill my soul to think that people didn’t want me. I am not sure how people run for office over and over again, even if they get beat handily. Joe has talked about running for office, but I always do my best to talk him out of that.
50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR CUFFED JEANS WITH ANKLE BOOTS | FASHION OVER 40Even if you get elected to the position, there is no guarantee that you can accomplish anything. I don’t do politics, but from what I have been able to gather, no one wants to work with anyone else. It seems like it is a big tug of war game going on all the time, and no one is willing to give an inch. I can’t imagine if the job that I was doing would be voted on every four years. I am sure that would change the whole way that you do everything. You would be afraid to make waves because people would bring it up in four years to use it against you. I hate it when people lose, but I hate it when they win also. They have no idea what they have gotten themselves in for. As Joe told one lady, who had just won an election, “remember, you asked for this.” She saw him a couple of years after the election and told him that he had been right. Lol! She hadn’t had any idea what was coming her way.

I could be talking about grandchildren one minute, and then elections the next. Lol! Now, we are actually going to move on to fashion. (shock!) I am wearing a paisley print duster today. I found this at a local boutique, and I fell in love with all of the colors. There are reds, purples, greens, yellows, and probably several more colors that I haven’t mentioned. When I find a clothing item with that many colors, my mind starts calculating how many ways that it can be styled. The more colors, the more ways to style. This duster is by L Love, and the only thing I hate about buying boutique clothing is the fact that I can’t find it on the internet. I know you like to have the “exact” item that I am wearing, but I can’t always find the link. Sorry 🙁


50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR CUFFED JEANS WITH ANKLE BOOTS | FASHION OVER 40I am wearing the Shannon necklace, the Sheridan and Starley bracelets, and the Lucianna earrings. It is a mixture of gold and silver, which I could never imagine doing years ago. Now, I mix gold and silver all the time, and I love not having to do pick one or the other.
50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR CUFFED JEANS WITH ANKLE BOOTS | FASHION OVER 40My faux suede ankle boots are several years old, and I have been looking to get a new pair. This pair is from Old Navy, and I have gotten my monies worth out of them, and then some. These run true to size, and I am wearing a size 9. I just saw that these are on sale for 25.00, and here is the link. This (here) is the new pair of booties that I am thinking about purchasing. What do you think???
50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR CUFFED JEANS WITH ANKLE BOOTS | FASHION OVER 40My cuffed skinny jeans make it so easy to wear ankle booties. With these jeans, I never have to worry if my cuffs are even. I can’t remember if this pair of jeans are from Cato Fashions or if they are a pair from Kut From The Kloth because they are almost identical. Both of those brands were true to size in the jeans.

The color and the fit are both nice, but the price is fantastic! You can check that out for yourself by clicking here, and BTW, I am wearing a large for sizing purposes.

      I love the colors in this duster it looks fabulous on you. And your stories are great.

  1. You diffinitely have a flair for wearing all colors. I enjoy your stories too. They make you seem to be just a good friend chatting. Thank you for just being real. I did solution tool and plan to order when I finish the products I have. Not dissatisfied with them just curious if I could be doing something more.

  2. Paisley duster is gorgeous..love all the colors. The wine color looks great with it, but so many other colors will as well. Great look!!

  3. Love the new Vince Camuto boots, but the heel is almost 4″ Not sure that would be too good for a whole days wear.

    • You look stunning as usual! Love the paisley duster! Your skin is glowing and your hair is perfect!

  4. Boots are actually on sale for $22.50! I like this outfit, as it is a good fall outfit for warmer climates, like where I live. I personally don’t like the fabric of this type of duster, but they look great on other people.

    LOVE THE DUSTER. WISH I COULD BUY ONE!!:) ALWAYS LOVE JEANS AND BOOTIES!

  6. I love this look on you, Tania!

    When we moved into our current neighborhood close to 20 years ago and the first HOA board was formed, my very sweet DH wanted to run for it. I’d never heard about anyone not regretting being on an HOA board and I tried to dissuade him. Long story short, it got ugly and he left before his term was up. Just as in national or local politics, egos become inflated and the “power” (kinda laughable when you’re talking about an HOA board but true!) goes to the heads of some. Don’t Do It, Joe!! 😉

    LOVE THE SNAKESKIN BOOTIES! and that duster is fine, fine, fine. 🙂

  8. Love the outfit, especially the duster. Gonna miss the Old Navy boots though, They look great with everything you wear. Never thought about elected officials that way before, but you are so right. It’s a miracle anything gets done, positive or negative.

I would love to hear from YOU!
