Good morning sunshine!!! This picture goes to show you how a sunny day can change your attitude! I can’t look at this photo without smiling, and the bright colors also help. Cloudy days and dark colors work on my mindset so much, and I can’t imagine living in an area that rains all the time or has limited sunlight. When my daughter was in Alaska, we mailed her a light therapy light to help with Vitamin D. Thankfully, she didn’t live in an area where it was dark all the time, but it didn’t have as much daylight at what she was used to having here in Virginia.50 IS NOT OLD | AN OUTFIT THAT MATCHES MY SUNNY ATTITUDE | FASHION OVER 40 I think that she used it some, but probably not as much after the first year. I assume that her body adjusted to having less light just like it did to the temperature being colder. I don’t know how she ever adjusted to all of the rain though. Juneau Alaska is a rainforest; it just isn’t a tropical rainforest. They have rain there almost all the time, so when the sun comes out for the day, it is so lovely. The last time that we visited, it was great weather, and we only had one or two days of light rain. People who live there never carry umbrellas, but everyone has a great waterproof racket with hoods. And let me tell you, those “good” raincoats cost a FORTUNE! Don’t ask me why I ended up talking about the lack of sunlight and rain when you have this beautiful sunny picture. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | AN OUTFIT THAT MATCHES MY SUNNY ATTITUDE | FASHION OVER 40 On a brighter note, how do you like this bright coral dress? Do you remember seeing this dress before? I wore it in this post (here.) The dress is from Old Navy, and it is a sleeveless swing dress. I love the swing dress style since it doesn’t cling or show any of my lumps and bumps. And, I like a sleeveless style dress (even though my arms are not in perfect shape) because I can easily add a jacket or cardigan to the look without having to worry about the sleeves bunching up and looking bulky. The dress comes in lots of different colors and prints, and here is the link.
50 IS NOT OLD | AN OUTFIT THAT MATCHES MY SUNNY ATTITUDE | FASHION OVER 40Could these Jaylen earrings match this dress any better??? I already had these earrings, and I was shocked at how nice they looked with this outfit. I keep telling you that if you buy things in the colors that you like, then you will be surprised how nicely everything will coordinate.
50 IS NOT OLD | AN OUTFIT THAT MATCHES MY SUNNY ATTITUDE | FASHION OVER 40Yes, I am once again wearing my favorite trio of bracelets. These are the Lelani, Lucille, and Ramona. I am partial to gold jewelry, so these bracelets work well for me.
50 IS NOT OLD | AN OUTFIT THAT MATCHES MY SUNNY ATTITUDE | FASHION OVER 40Michael Kors espadrilles for the win! I love the Berkley espadrille, and you will be seeing me wear this a lot this summer. They are a perfect nude color to match almost anything, and I love the gold zipper detail on the front. The platform sole gives me a little extra height, and I can’t wait to wear these with my bell-bottomed jeans. Here is the link to the shoes.

50 IS NOT OLD | AN OUTFIT THAT MATCHES MY SUNNY ATTITUDE | FASHION OVER 40I have made you wait long enough. I know that you are dying to hear about this gorgeous cardigan. The springy floral print is what drew my attention to the sweater. I fell in love with the print at first sight. Lol! I like a 3/4 sleeve because I find it the most flattering, and the hip length is perfect for jeans and well as dresses. This is machine washable and lay flat to dry, and I am wearing a size medium, and it fits me perfectly. Here is the link to the sweater.
50 IS NOT OLD | AN OUTFIT THAT MATCHES MY SUNNY ATTITUDE | FASHION OVER 40I hope you liked today’s look. I loved the outfit, but I also loved the location for the photo shoot. Thanks to Courtney Baldwin photography for the photos and the Appalachian Pharmacy School for the locale. Also, let’s see who reads all the way to the end of my posts. Guess what today is??? It is my BIRTHDAY!!! I am officially 59 years young today!

BTW, tonight is the big announcement for the latest product from Rodan + Fields. I love that they are rapidly expanding their product catalog, and are even going into different demographics and markets. Plus, a new country launch in on the horizon for Rodan + Fields. One of the perks of being a consultant is that I can get my hands on new products before anyone else. Woohoo! I can’t wait to add a PLUS one to my routine.

  1. Happy Birthday!! I didn’t get this post in my email like usual so I looked it up on Facebook. Not sure why? Anyway, love the color of dress and the cardigan. Looks great on you and is a color that works well for me too. I have the bracelet with the marbled cream stones and I love it. It goes with everything. I told Leigh Ann to remind me about Zoom call. I hope to see you there. Have a wonderful day! You’d never know you were 59. I’m not too far behind you.

  16. Happy Birthday Tania! ?Here’s wishing you a beautiful day. I love this outfit. I especially love that it can be either casual or dressy.

  17. I know I am definitely in the minority but I wish panty hose would come back in style!?. I think almost everyone’s legs look better (especially with dresses with hem lines above the knee) and control top holds everything in ? without having to wear Spanx.

  18. Love your outfit! I have several swing dresses from Old Navy, super comfy. I’m going to check out the cardigan!

    Happy Birthday. Have a fabulous day ??
    Great color dress and sweater on you. Looks like spring.

  31. Happy Birthday Tania! I think the sweater is beautiful – love the outfit.

  32. Happy Birthday! Great outfit. Love the mix of Old Navy and Talbots. I often mix Talbots and Target. Now I include Cato, thanks to you!

  33. Birthday girl!!! I had to have coffee without you this morning. Let me tell you, it felt as grey as the day outside. I hope your day was filled with tons of love, joy, family and fun ? Oh, and shopping!!!!,??????????

  34. Happy birthday! I bought myself this dress (and another from the same website) in honor of your birthday. Haha!

    Actually, both times you have used this dress in your blog, I thought it was perfect for what I’m needing. My husband and I do one to two missions trips to Kenya or Tanzania per year. Since we are teaching pastors, we ladies need to wear dresses. This looks so comfortable! And since it keeps popping up, I decided to get it! 🙂

  35. Happy Birthday ?? Tania. I love reading the blog and your style is so inspiring. I know you have influenced my own fashion choices. I’m a couple months older than you and I no longer dread turning 60. Thank you for being YOU.

  36. Firstly belated birthday wishes. I do hope the family spoiled you?
    Love the sandals. Shoes, sandals boots are always a struggle to find a comfortable pair of. I look at my own feet and think I must have a deformed pair as comfort is hard to find with a broad foot and a high instep lol ! Still no doubt I will buy many more pairs before I find real comfort. Have a nice day. Love – Jill dstylishatsixty

  37. You look prettier than a bakery birthday cake in this coral knit dress, flowery cardigan, and platform sandals. Happy personal holiday. Enjoy the cake and the cards.

  38. Happy belated birthday Tania! You are a very young looking 59! I love you for your great style and positivity. You bring out the best in people by your kind heart and fun spirit. God bless you!

I would love to hear from YOU!
