50 IS NOT OLD | A SPRING AND SUMMER CASUAL OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40My daughter has heard me complain too long about not being good at managing my time. I am a “fuss about the issue” kind of person, but she is a “do something about the issue” kind of gal. So, she decided to order me something to help with my time management. It is a new planner by pandaplanner.com. The issue will be in getting me to “use” the planner. Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | A SPRING AND SUMMER CASUAL OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40The planner is different from anything else that I have seen before. It doesn’t have the dates already filled in, so you can label it with any date, no matter when you purchase the planner. It has three sections, a monthly, a weekly, and a daily that you can use. I sat down yesterday and filled out the monthly part pretty fast. The weekly one wasn’t as easy to fill out; I am going to have to work on what to put in that section. The daily part is the one that helped me to focus. It has an area for tasks, a time scheduler section, and a priority section. I filled out all of the sections and designated 2 hours on the time scheduler to do the blog. Every time that I found my “squirrel” brain wanting to go off in a different direction, I would look at the planner and get back on track. I plan to fill out the task and priority section each night for the next day. That way when I get up the following day, I will already have my day mostly planned. I’ll let you know if I continue to use this, or if I lay it aside after a week like I did all the rest of the planners that I own. Lol!
50 IS NOT OLD | A SPRING AND SUMMER CASUAL OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40Don’t you love the colors of this shirt? This orchid color has been my favorite color this spring, and I have bought several things with this color. The floral design makes me happy. I look at the shirt, and I find myself smiling. This is a classic button-up shirt made of 100% cotton. It is long sleeve with a button cuff, but I have it rolled up for a spring style. I opted to tie the hem for a tie-front look instead of leaving it loose or tucking it in. I am wearing a medium, and it fits great. Also, use the code TOPS to get 30% off!!! Here is the link to the shirt.
50 IS NOT OLD | A SPRING AND SUMMER CASUAL OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40Have I showed you the Luna earrings before? The photo doesn’t do the earrings justice; the cream marbling is so pretty. They are edged in gold and have a 2.5″ drop.
50 IS NOT OLD | A SPRING AND SUMMER CASUAL OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40The gold bracelets are the Ramona, the Lucille, and the Lelani. This bracelet trio is a favorite pairing of mine because I love the gold and cream mixed together. All of these bracelets are on an elastic cord, so they are effortless to put on and take off. For all of my Canadian readers, you will be thrilled to hear that you can now click on the Canadian website and order Plunder jewelry!!! Go here to check out all of the jewelry that Plunder has to offer.
50 IS NOT OLD | A SPRING AND SUMMER CASUAL OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40I didn’t think that I was going to like these jeans, but I was wrong. These are girlfriend jeans in the vector wash. Girlfriend jeans are roomier than a regular classic style jean, and they are perfect for ladies who don’t like jeans fitting so snug. These have 2% spandex for a little give and take, and these sit slightly below your waist. I have these rolled up with a small cuff, but they are an ankle length. I am wearing a size 10, but I could have sized down one size, which is usual with the girlfriend jeans. Here is the link to the jeans.

      Kaye, I keep looking for the perfect planner. I don’t think there is anything wrong with any of the previous planners that I have used, it is me that needs adjusting. I am going to have to work on that aspect of my life.

  2. Love this picture you look great and your granddaughter adorable I love that you are honest and tell us the size you are wearing just want to say Thank you and have a very happy Mother’s Day!!!!

  3. I like this outfit a lot. Probably because it’s very much my style. I bought a top recently that is the orchid color and it’s so pretty. It must be a big color this spring. Good luck with the planner. I’ve never used one but I might need to. My squirrels are still raving. ?

  4. Hi Tania, This is a smart looking outfit. I love the skinny leg blue jeans (which I wear often). Also the blouse looks soft and Springy. Jewelry is fabulous.

  5. Very pretty! Good luck with the planner. I love them but using them takes time too.

  6. I use my phone in the calender. I can just talk to it and it will save my notes always handy and less time

  7. Since I retired, I HAVE to have a planner!!! How did I ever have time to work?? I still make a list every night of what I need to do tomorrow.

I would love to hear from YOU!
