I made it to Tennessee! Did I tell all of you that I was traveling to Tennessee this weekend? We had to celebrate Christmas late this year with my mom and dad due to some conflicting schedules with other family members. It doesn’t matter to me when we all get together, just as long as we eventually get to all meet under the same roof.
For the first time in YEARS, all three of my children will be under the same roof at the same time! That is enough of a Christmas present for me. Plus, while we are in Tennessee, I hope to get a five-generation photo with my grandfather, who is 102. Both of my sons and their children are going to try to grab a generational photo this weekend. People seem to be having children later in life, so these types of photos are getting harder and harder to get. My grandfather is still in good health, but I know better than to take things for granted. I can’t wait to see him perk up when we walk in the door. It won’t be because he sees me walk in; it will be Joe that will put the sparkle in his eye. I would call to wish him a happy birthday, and grandpa would talk to me for about three minutes before he would say, “is Joe there?” Lol! They are two-peas-in-a-pod!!!
Today, I wanted to show you once again, my favorite color this winter. Gray has been my color of choice this winter, followed closely by the color black. Both of these colors are totally out of character for me since I usually gravitate toward bright colors. But, I have embraced both of these colors, and also muted prints and neutrals. This beautiful silver sweater is from The Loft, and the diamond cable knit makes this sweater stand out from all of the rest. This sweater hits right at the hip line, so it is shorter than some. The style of this sweater is relaxed, and I think a tad bit on the boxy side. I am wearing a medium, which is my usual size for clothing from the Loft. This sweater is machine washable; that is always a plus! Here is the link to the sweater.
These plaid pants are by one of my favorite brands. The name of these pants is the Mia, and they are from Kut From The Kloth. Usually, I buy jeans from this brand, but these are like a legging. They fit like a glove and are incredibly comfortable. I have been searching for pants that are different from what I already have. I have plenty of plain blue, black, gray, jeans, etc., so these caught my eye. The plaid is subtle, and from a distance, you can’t even see the print. These are machine washable, and I am wearing my usual size 10, which fits me perfectly. Here is the link to the pants.
Here is the wow factor for this outfit. I hear people all the time say that “leopard is a neutral,” and I wanted to put that to the test. I am not sure that this is a “leopard” print, but it is some animal print, and that still counts. These are the cutest, most stylish ankle boot that I own. I oohed and awwed for an hour over these when I opened the box. These leather booties are by ENZO ANGIOLINI, and they have a 3″ heel and a pointed toe. I am wearing my usual size 9, and these fit me fine. Anytime that I buy shoes with a pointed toe, they will feel tight at first, but they usually loosen up after a minute.
I wanted to show you how these have a gathered elastic opening around the ankle. I like this feature because it doesn’t feel so stiff, and it adjusts when I walk. If you want a statement boot that you can wear with almost anything, then here is the link.
I asked on my Instagram stories what people would like to see from 50 Is Not Old, and I got a lot of suggestions. It seems like there are a lot of people wanting to see business causal or work attire, classic styles, skirts, and how to wear flats. I have all of these in the works, and I love hearing your suggestions. One of the other recommendations was how to take one article of clothing and wear it in multiple ways. I may do that with these boots, what do you think?
