Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a baby blue graphic sweatshirt, a pair of tie-dye sweatpants, and white Sperry sneakersFriday was one of those days where I couldn’t get anything done. I had all the time in the world, but I kept getting sidetracked with nothingness. My morning started really well, and I was proud of myself for going out to my office to work by 9:00 am. But, then I realized that I had a conference call at 10:00 with someone that I am working with, so I had to get prepared for the call.

I can’t wait to start implementing these ideas, but they will take months to get them in the works. Then, Joe wanted me to come and gather him a “to-go” bag because he was going golfing. He drives to the golf course by himself, rides in a cart by himself, only uses his clubs and his ball, and never touches the flagstick. So, he is pretty safe in this activity, but he gets hungry before the 18 holes are over. The to-go bag today had 4 oranges quartered and put into a baggy, a snack baggy of roasted peanuts, a couple of peanut butter and cracker nabs, and a couple of granola bars. Because the oranges would be sticky and messy, I also threw him some wet paper towels in a baggy so that he could clean his hands. Awwww, aren’t I a good wife??? Lol! Of course, it also gets him out of my hair for the day. Hahahaha!

Once I got him out of the house, I jumped back and forth from one project to another. By the time I looked up, it was already 5:00, and I couldn’t tell you a thing that I had gotten accomplished. Please tell me that I am not the only one who has good intentions but lousy follow-through.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a baby blue lace-up graphic sweatshirt, a pair of tie-dye sweatpants, and white Sperry sneakersWith all of the craziness going on in the world right now, I thought that we all could use some LOVE. The minute that I laid eyes on this lace-up sweatshirt, I knew that it was going in my shopping cart. I love the baby-blue color of the sweatshirt, the lace-up details on both sides, the different colors on the cuffs, and the gorgeous spring colors on the LOVE letters.

I made the mistake of ordering this in size large because I wasn’t sure how it would fit me. But it is too big, and I had to return it. I am going to order a medium before it sells outs, and it “will” sell out because it is only 10.99! This is a nice weight sweatshirt, and it is super soft and comfy. So, grab it while you can, here is the link. Just in case you are someone who lives in a warmer climate, or you don’t like sweatshirts, I’ll link some other similar items that you might like.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a pair of tie-dye sweatpants, and white Sperry sneakersThe tie-dye lace-up sweatpants are super cute! I loved all the colors in the tie-dye design; they remind me of cotton candy. YUM! I think that these pants are a show-stopper and a real statement, but I am not sure that I would wear them. Am I crazy? What do you gurls think? I ended up sending these back because they were a large and they were too big for me. And, now, the pants are no longer on the website, so I guess it doesn’t matter if I would have worn them or not. But, now I am on a mission to see if I can find similar items for all of you.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a blue graphic sweatshirt, a pair of tie-dye sweatpants, and white Sperry sneakersI have surprised myself at how much I am wearing these white Sperry sneakers. I am not a sneakers wearer, but I keep reaching for these shoes lately. Maybe it is because I am dressing more casually since we are sort of confined to our homes, but I’ll admit, I don’t hate it. I might be a sneaker convert by the time this whole virus thing is over. What about you? Do you love sneakers?

I ended up having to size down in these shoes, so I am wearing an 8.5 instead of my usual size 9. Here is the link to these sneakers.

All of this hand-washing and mask-wearing is taking a toll on my skin. I am using my Active Hydration Serum on my face which helps immensely, and I am using the Active Hydration Body Replenish on my hands which is been a lifesaver!

The AHBR retails for 66.00, but you can buy that for 55.00 that includes shipping.

  1. Hi Emersyn! So sweet of you to want to help with the blog 🙂 I am in Texas and we’re having some beautiful weather this week (storms tomorrow though). My family and I are great and working on some projects around the house. Hope to see more notes from you in the future.

  2. Hi Emersyn! Thank you for the note. Down in Georgia, we are doing great! You and your family stay well and enjoy your week. ❤️

  3. Sara Grant says:

    Ermersyn thank you for your sweet positive message. We all need that right now. I finally went for a drive by myself for ideas for my yard in a neighborhood I like. Spring is bursting out! And some people put teddy bears in their windows for kids on walks or drives to spot and count. I have two and felt better seeing others so I knew it really was a thing. I really liked the fun tie dye! Especially in pastel. Why not feel fun at home.

  4. Happy Monday to Emersyn~ she did such a great job with her post! Thank you Tania & Emersyn for keeping our spirits bright! xoxoxoxo

  5. Just reading Emersyn’s message! please tell her THANK YOU for thinking of us!

  6. Tania loved your post today ,reading your beautiful little granddaughters post was amazing she did a great good thanks for sharing with all of us brought some smiles to our quarantined lives

  7. I loved the little message. My darling granddaughter Ariel used to write me little notes. Now she texts pictures of the food she cooks lol. Or asks for recipes. The little texts are such a joy. I’m missing her so much, she’s only 6 hrs away but it seems like a continent to me while it’s not far, what with what’s going on here it may be ages before I see her except FaceTime. This is the same grandchild who FaceTimed me to get me to show her how to put the ink in her printer! It used to be mine so I guess she figured I’d know how. I would have looked on YouTube haha. Hug that little one tight while you still can cuz she’ll grow up and go to college and poof be a grown up lady!

    1. Liane, I told Joe that before we know it, she will think that we are old. I am enjoying every minute that I can right now!!!

  8. Charlcy Green says:

    Oh my goodness what a precious message from Emersyn! How old is she now? All grown up!
    That is a very different and cute sweatshirt! I love the X’s laceups on the sides! I have a pair of those sneakers and love them too. Do you have a hard time keeping them clean?

    1. She is six going on sixteen. Lol!

  9. Sharon Mulliken says:

    I could never get away with that outfit, but you look adorable in it! Maybe I would wear it only in the house…..I love the way you are “up” and share such fun snippets out of your life! I have had to teach myself (and I say it to myself frequently) “Finish ONE thing at a time”! While I am doing one thing, I think of another and can tend to jump around. The self talk has helped and then I am not so frustrated at not getting any one thing completely accomplished. Love your grand’s message. What a sweetie! Have a great weekend!

    1. Sharon, I don’t have training in fashion or anything else for that matter. So, if I didn’t talk about my family, what would I talk about? Lol!

  10. Joe is lucky he gets to golf. They haven’t opened up the golf courses as an “essential” service yet here in Alberta. My husband is keeping his fingers crossed. Stay safe!

    1. The golf course has made it where everyone has there own carts, and no one removes the flags. I am glad that he can use this as a stress reliever.

  11. such a cute message, Hi Emersyn! we love you too. Tania that outfit is so cute I just love it. I don’t usually like pastels or shirts with messages, but I would get it in a minute.

    1. Mary, I loved the shirt! I am not a huge fan of LOVE, but I liked the way that it looked on this shirt.

  12. Thanks Tania for your happy and uplifting posts! I look forward to them every day. And thank Emersyn for her addition to your post. It made my day!! We love her, too! ❤️

    1. Cristy, she loved doing the blog. She felt so big.

  13. Wow these so remind me of a blue tie dyed pair of joggers I bought my husband for his first Father’s Day 32 years ago! Crazy how fashion has a moving wheel!

    1. Fashion does keep repeating itself.

  14. Love this!! I would wear it as a pajamas though! It’d a little too unstructured for me to wear out- love ❤️ the message from Emersyn!! We enjoy that you share your family stories with us!! Especially”Joe” stories!! Lol

    1. It would be too hot for me as pajamas. I love sharing my family with everyone, especially when I can tell something on Joe. Lol!

  15. Thank you Emersyn! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am not a fan of the pants. The shirt is kinda cute, but not my favorite look. Have a good weekend!

    1. Emersyn thought she was such a big girl.

  16. I have always been a tie dye fan, not sure exactly why, but I just think it’s fun. At age 62 I still want to be, and have, fun. I’ve limited my tie dye to tops and haven’t purchased ant pants even though it’s tempting for a casual, stay-at-home look. Aren’t grandkids the best? I terribly miss being able to hug my five blessings. Have a great weekend.

    1. I think it is a fun print also! I really loved the cotton candy colors of the pants.

  17. I think tye dye is fun. May I suggest you check out ZUMI clothes! Please check their vests out, just to name one! Also, Blowfish shoes has just come out with tye dye sneakers! CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m in my early 70’s and yes I have the shoes as well as the vests! Ya gotta live! Not to dress inappropriately but edgy!

    1. Way to go Pam! I like fun prints and colors. I would have kept the pants, but they were just too big.

  18. Not a big fan of the pants either. Shirt is just okay.

    1. I love this outfit. I’m sad the pants are sold out. It sure would be a happy outfit to wear to perk me up staying at home. I need that right now. As everyone else I am missing my family, especially those grandkids’ hugs !!

      1. I thought it was a happy outfit also! I was sad that it was gone when I went to order me a smaller size.

    2. Lol! I thought they were super cute. I would have kept them if they had fit me.

  19. Hi Emersyn! We are feeling good and we love you too! How sweet of you to help Nene with her blog! You go Girl!
    The pants are not something I would wear either. Good call on sending them back. : )

    1. Mary Lou, you should have seen her face when she was reading all of the comments. ?

  20. Karen Burns says:

    Hi Emersyn! Keep up the good work. I like the tie dyed sweat shirt and pants but would only wear one at a time. Both of them together is a little too much. The sweat shirt with a nice pastel pair of jeans or the pants with a solid tshirt.

    1. I let Emersyn read all of the comments, and she was thrilled!

  21. Ah you spoiled Joe!! Haha, it s nice to have the place for our own so now and then right! Have a great weekend!

    1. Joe is very spoiled. Lol!

  22. Kathie blackwell says:

    Please tell Emersyn that I loved her note to us and thank her for me. I had a great Friday and I hope she did too! I hope she has a wonderful week-end!

    PS. Emersyn, You are beautiful!
