A PRINTED SHIRT CAN BE TONED DOWN WITH A SWEATER

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a pink v-neck sweater over top of a brightly printed shirt, and pair of distressed skinny jeans, and a pair of white ankle boots

Before I start talking about this gorgeous silk printed shirt and cashmere sweater, I have a bone to pick with some people. Some people on Facebook are making a nuisance of themselves to my readers and me, which is not cool. Not only is it not cool, but it also won’t be tolerated. If you want to sell your products, get people to invest with you, tell people about your witch doctor, or look for a wife/girlfriend/sugar momma/friend, you need to get your own platform and stay off mine. YOU WILL BE BANNED!

Several women tell me that they don’t leave comments on FB anymore because of the unwanted comments. I understand; they are unwelcome and inappropriate. I try and go through the comments several times a day, and I immediately BAN anyone abusing the platform. The problem is, I don’t know when someone does this until sometimes hours later. Until I can find the abuser, ignore them, and do not comment back. I will take BAN them as soon as possible, and you can feel free to message me if I haven’t seen the comment. This is our community, and we don’t have to let some abusing the platform keep us from enjoying it.

I guess that I will get off my soapbox now, but you still might see steam coming out of my ears for a while. Once I start talking about this unique silk printed shirt, I’ll be fine. This printed shirt is gorgeous, and I love all of the different colors. I sent a photo of me to my mom while I was wearing this, and she immediately said that it was TOO MUCH. Nope, not for me; I love it.

Luckily, I caught this shirt on a Final Sale rack and took my chances that it would fit. I am wearing a medium, and it is a smidge tight through the chest area, but a small piece of Hollywood Fashion Tape fixed that issue. The printed shirt is no longer available, but pants in the same pattern are. How brave are you???

This is where I was going to talk about the length of the printed shirt, how it would look with dress pants, and how it doesn’t show my rolls. But, since it is sold out, I guess that point is moot. So, I’ll talk about my pointy toe boots instead.

My white leather ankle boots by Marc Fisher are a modern retake on an old look. The pointy toe design is one that I love, and so is a chunky heel. The shaft of this boot is higher, which has been the trend for ankle boots this year. I sized up in these boots and ordered a 9 1/2 instead of my usual size nine. When I bought these boots, they were on sale, but that sale has ended. I’ll try to find some similar boots in different price ranges since these are pretty pricey.

To tone down the brightness of the printed shirt, I added a pink v-neck cashmere sweater. This not only tones down the brightness of the shirt, but it brings the focus on the sweater. That allows you to wear the shirt in more ways. The next time I wear the shirt, I will pair it with a blazer to show you how it looks. You can see 3 ways to wear a shirt by clicking here.

I am wearing a size medium in the sweater, and it is plenty roomy for me. This sweater is at an unbelievable price… under $40.00! But, sizes are getting limited, so check it out sooner rather than later. It is available in several colors, so maybe you will be able to score the sweater in one of the colors, or maybe a couple of colors.

For those who might have an allergy to cashmere, I’ll link a few similar items below.

I love these jeans, and I know that a lot of you wear this brand also. They are Wit & Wisdom, and every pair that I have by this brand fit amazingly well. They are snug without being tight, and they fit around the waist but don’t create a muffin top. I love the small amount of distressing on this pair, but there are plenty of other styles to choose from.

I am wearing my usual size 10 in these jeans, so I would say they run true to size.

This leather handbag is from Vera Bradley, and it has been one I’ve carried for years. When I first bought this bag, I thought, “I’ll never carry this bag. It is too bright, and it won’t go with anything.” Well, I was WRONG. I carried it non-stop for the first year, and I still carry it all the time. I love the bright color and how it adds interest to any outfit. Here are cute handbags for you to check out, and be sure to click on the photo of the bag to see all the colors available. Some websites won’t let me choose the color that I want to show you.

It is time to roll up my sleeves and get to work. I have a year-long blogging course that I need to start, an R+F training video to watch, and my team’s ZOOM call where we will be talking about how to make “reels” for Instagram. Oh yeah, I also need to take some photos because I’ve run out of pictures. Is all of this a lot of work? The short answer is YES! Does it bring me joy??? Absolutely!!!

Every course, every training video, and every team meeting helps me grow, not only as a blogger but also as a person. I feel like both of my businesses (blog and Rodan and Fields) impact women’s lives and create confidence for themselves. This is why I do it; this is why I can’t wait to open my computer every morning!

    Team Tania all the way!!! Lowe all the colors in this blouse and am bummed that it is sold out. I love the hot pink sweater with it also. I don’t blame you for being super annoyed at the creepers on FB. I get a lot of “friend” requests on Instagram after I comment on your posts. Too bad these wacks can’t do something constructive with their time instead of creeping on you and your followers.

    Good on you for cleaning up the Facebook stuff. I’ve gone one step farther and deleted my account. People who know me know how to reach me. The rest can go fly a kite. Instagram deleted my account for me. Probably for liking some content from Dr. Mercola or others questioning the prolonged lockdowns in some areas.

    Love the prints! I tend to shy away from bright colors but they look great on you.

    I actually think the pink sweater over the blouse makes those colors really “pop” more. Just that hind of color sticking out of top and bottom and then the solid over top just adds to noticing the color! And fashion tape..thank you for that suggestion. I have never used it but I will be picking some up. I also love the color of your lipstick with these pink colors.
