50 IS NOT OLD | A PLAYFUL AND FUN PATTERN | FASHION OVER 40Top of the morning to you! Oh wait, that was the other day, wasn’t it? Let’s try this again…Happy Hump Day! I am in the most playful mood today. Go ahead an say a quick prayer for Joe because I have been bouncing off the walls today. I am not sure what the difference could be, but I like feeling this good. I have a friend who is the sweetest thing on earth, and we always say that her world is all “rainbows and Unicorns.” I think that I know what it must be like to walk a mile in her shoes.
50 IS NOT OLD | A PLAYFUL AND FUN PATTERN | FASHION OVER 40 Wait a minute, I think I know why I am feeling so good. It just dawned on me that I have been walking for a couple of days in the mornings. I have heard people say that if you exercise in the morning that you will have more energy and be more productive for the rest of the day. I wouldn’t know if that is true or not since exercising is something that I have trouble doing on a regular basis. Crap! Now that I know that it is giving me more energy I might actually have to start trying to do more. I had someone call me yesterday and give me a couple of ideas for more businesses for me to start working. Maybe if I keep this exercising gig up I might actually consider doing one or two of these. Probably not, but maybe. Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | A PLAYFUL AND FUN PATTERN | FASHION OVER 40I have no idea what has happened to this color-loving blogger, but I am all about black and white lately. I saw this cute polka dot top at Cato Fashions and I had to have this. The sleeves are cute and fun with the lace, ruffles, and tiers. I like how the polka dot pattern varies from the large bold dots to the smaller dainty dots. Remember, if polka-dots are not your thing, you can always add a smaller accessory to your outfit to add this trending print. Here is the link to the top.

50 IS NOT OLD | A PLAYFUL AND FUN PATTERN | FASHION OVER 40 Pearls, pearls, pearls! I couldn’t help myself, I had to add more “dots” to my look. Lol! The Lottie multi-strand pearl necklace has been one of my go-to necklaces for a very long time. This necklace was one of my first purchases when I joined Plunder Design almost three years ago. It is a statement piece, but it isn’t too big or too bold. It is the baby bear of jewelry, it is just right. Lol! The Gentry pearl hoop earrings are a recent purchase from this last catalog. I love the size of these earrings, they are nice and large, but they are still classy.
50 IS NOT OLD | A PLAYFUL AND FUN PATTERN | FASHION OVER 40These white pants have an adorably ruffled hemline. They are a pair that I bought last year, also from Cato Fashions, and I thought they would look cute with the top. Both items are feminine and flirty, and also somewhat playful. Haha! I just realized that they suited my mood today exactly! You will see me wearing white pants a LOT in the coming months. White is the perfect color for spring and summer so you need to have a pair or two in your closet. Here are a couple of white pants that have unique hemlines also.

  1. Black and white are great together. Love the mix of the 2 spot sizes but not too sure of the fussiness of 2 frills on the sleeves. Still you are looking great as ever. Have a lovely day – Jill x

    • Black, white and polka dots are 3 of my favorite things! Enjoying your posts and colorful pieces. You look great!

      You must not be a frilly kind of gal. I am like that too, most of the time I don’t like ruffles.

  2. The first day of spring and this gorgeous top, how can you not be in a good mood?! Have a great day!

    Love this look! I saw that top at Cato the other day! Super cute!! Black and white is always a classy look, dressed up or dressed down. Happy Spring?

  4. I think you must have spring fever! Love black and white together, it’s always a classy look.

    I love that walking can set the tone for the day! It is finally getting nice enough that I can get out here in the midwest. Also love the black/white combinations and your shoes.

  6. Outdoor exercise has the same effect on me. Pay attention to whether you feel as bouncy on the cloudy days you have walked . If not, it is the sunshine that has energized you and lifted your mood, not necessarily just the exercise. An SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) lamp may help. As we get older, our corneas become yellowed so we become more susceptible to this problem. So the older we are, the more time we need to spend outside on sunny days.

    Good luck with your exercise program!

    Oh I just love your playful attitude & outfit! That top is to-die-for & I must go find it! Those pants are also adorable & I was just thinking the other day how I needed a pair w/a different & fun hemline! They seem to be so popular this season – lacy, fringy and rufflied! But those shoes ad so much to that outfit & you didn’t mention where you got them? Are they polka dot too? I think I remember that you are taking off for the beach this week? If so, this outfit is perfect for that vibe! Enjoy your playful, energetic day!

  8. Love your outfit today. One of my most favorites. . Happy first day of spring. This made me smile. ??

  9. Possibly the full moon has you all energized?! Seems to work on the kids at school that way!!

I would love to hear from YOU!
