50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAYWould you be my Valentine? Who gets cards, flowers, or perfume for Valentine’s Day? Do you cook a special dinner or sip a glass of wine? I know what I am getting this year, chocolate covered strawberries! I LOVE chocolate covered strawberries and I get them every year. Probably the reason I get them every year is because “I” order them every year. Lol! I found out a long time ago that if I wanted something specific then I better ask for it or just order it myself. Joe loves this idea, it takes him off the hook. Hahaha50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAYI have gotten all the “normal” presents from Joe before. There were years when I would get roses and candy, and there were times when I would get a present of some kind, but truthfully now I only want chocolate covered strawberries. I think it comes with age, I don’t feel the need to get something that shows me how much Joe loves me. I think in the past it was more about showing everybody else. If one of the other girls at work got flowers and I didn’t, then did that mean their husbands loved them more? Nope, it meant they knew that was what their wives wanted. Oh no, I just realized that I have become “practical.”50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAYRed for Valentine’s Day. What else would you expect? The red cropped jacket is spectacular, I love it. Guess where I got it? How many of you said the overstock store??? No, that is not where I got it, I got it at an estate sale when I was in Georgia. In fact, I bought a lot at that sale, the lady was my size and had my taste. I came home with several bags full. This is a George Simonton and is a size 10. I love the big gold buttons and the collarless style.

50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAY I can’t believe I put off ordering this Plunder necklace called Paris. I thought it looked too big and had too much bling for me. However, I loved it with this jacket. The large pearls and the big rhinestones look dressy instead of gaudy. The bright color of the jacket made the necklace really stand out.  50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAY The earrings match the Paris necklace perfectly. They are a stud style with the large rhinestone and the big one-inch pearl drop. Don’t forget that I am offering 15% off Plunder on orders over 50.00, I will send you a check for the discount.  Go to www.plunderdesign.com/party/believe to shop from Plunder. 50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAY I don’t think I have carried this Emma Fox purse in a while. It is one of my favorites for style, but I am not fond of having to buckle it to make it stay closed. I bought this several years ago, it is great quality and will last a long, long time. Her purses always have a hanging fox tag and the clover-leaf design closure.

50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAYThese boot cut jeans are by Vigoss. I buy my Vigoss jeans at Maurices but I will wait until they go on sale. Vigoss is a nice quality jean and they will wash up and wear nicely. I decided to wear my red boots today to match my jacket. The Claudia bootie by Bellini add a little sass to this outfit. These booties are the perfect color red, they have a 3 1/2 inch heel, zipper accents, and are micro suede material. I wore them last year (here) with a similar outfit. That picture was almost a years exactly ago. That post was from February 10th and today is the 14th. You can sure tell the difference in the eyelashes. Lol!!!

50 IS NOT OLD | HAPPY VALENTINES DAYI hope you and your Valentine (whoever or whatever that might be) have a wonderful day. I will tell you all about my strawberries tomorrow. Lol! Joe doesn’t know that I bought him some gourmet chocolate covered cherries. Those suckers are HUGE!!! I’ll give them to him later.

    Beautiful Valentine’s Day outfit! I love those red booties & that jacket match perfectly! How wise you are to order your own gift & not mind at all! I still love the thrill of getting flowers or candy from a sweetie – probably because I’ve never had that on a regular basis. My husband was NOT good at presents or flowers! I love Valentine’s but I’m SO glad it’s over – it was hard on me this year!

    1. Charley, you just have to trust in his timing. Enjoy your family, work, social network, and new found internet friend while you wait. ?

  2. You look super youthful in this outfit. That’s awesome. You have changed my way of dressing I am a bit more bold now, and when I am at marshals or Tj Max I say to myself WWTD “haha what would Tonya do! How funny is that BUT GUESS WHAT IT HELPS ME OUT OUTFITS TOGETHER!

    1. Denise, I love this!!! The blog has helped me also. When I look back at my earlier posts I see a huge difference in my looks. I hope for the better.

  3. LOVE that red jacket. Okay, the whole outfit is fabulous.

    My husband and I went to Schlotzky’s for supper tonight. We had our first “date” at a Schlotzky’s seventeen years ago, right before Valentine’s Day, so we consider this one of our anniversaries. No flowers, no candy, but plenty of happiness.

  4. You look great! Chocolate covered strawberries and raisins are my two favorite candies, would take them over flowers any day! Happy Valentine’s Day!!

  5. Frances Brumfield says:

    Love the outfit ! probably my favorite so far!! Looks like those jeans are on sale now at Maurice’s are those boot cut?

    1. Yes, these are boot cut.

  6. Robin Staley says:

    Love, love the jacket!

  7. This is the cutest Valentine’s Day outfit I have seen today!

  8. BEST outfit to date!!! You’re absolutely stunning!!

  9. I love the whole look. I’m partial to clothing in red and in purple. You rock the red!

  10. Tania, love, love, love this outfit on you. You look ah mazing! Ghat red jacket and those boots are go gorgeous! I couldn’t wear a heel that high though. Have a fabulous day and enjoy those strawberries!

  11. Love the look! I’m a little jealous of the jacket.

    Happy Valentine’s Day! This year, instead of Chip doing for me, I’m doing for him. I baked his favorite kind of cake last night and I’m making his favorite dinner tonight. Sometimes our men need a little spoiling too.

  12. Love the red jacket and necklace! I need to go look at Plunder today. Are the earrings also Plunder? My husband is like Joe. He is much happier when I buy my own presents. He doesn’t have to worry about it! His motto is happy wife happy life!

    1. I love this Plunder set. Yes, the earrings are also from Plunder. Just click on the link.

  13. Melesa Garrison says:

    You are dressed perfectly for Valentine’s Day…LOVE the red jacket and jeans! Hope you enjoy your strawberries. I’ve gotten mine from Sharie’s Berries before and they were delicious!

  14. Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope the strawberries are great and the cherries are a big hit!

  15. LOVE your outfit! That shade of red looks amazing on you! As far as Valentines Day gifts….I always have an ongoing “wish list” at Brighton, so my hubby doesn’t have to come up with an idea, and I don’t have to return anything!! Ha! Now, if he could make it as easy for me (to buy for him!) it’d be great!! Happy Valentine’s Day Tania!

  16. Gina D from Texas says:

    You look great! And verrryyyy Valentinesy … is that a word? LOL. I love the jacket by the way.

  17. Stephanie Henshaw says:

    I love your outfit. I am going to have to get that necklace. Love the Plunder jewelry.

    1. I love this necklace too. I can’t believe I put off ordering it so long.

  18. If you ever want to get rid of that red jacket, I want to be first in line to buy it. 😉

  19. Not sure if you do this….but i ALWAYS spray my shoes with waterproof spray. Every pair of shoes that i own, get a good soaking before they go in my closet. I can make a $5.00 pair of Walmart shoes last years……..

    Love the red!

  20. I have just found your blog thru Pinterest and I adore it! Your style is lovely and just what I’m looking for. Between my daughter and your postings I am on my way out of the fashion hole I’ve been living in. Yay!

    1. I just love Pinterest. I wish I had time to play on it more.

  21. Glenda Braun says:

    Love great in red. Happy Valentine’s Day.

  22. robjodiefilogomo says:

    I love that you added that pearl cluster necklace with this outfit, Tania!! In fact, I’m going to write an article for Sixty + Me about pearls, so I’ve been trying to wear mine more especially with casual outfits!!
    Happy V-Day!

  23. You look great! Happy Valentines Day!

  24. Pat Cloey says:

    Tania, you look fabulous in red! I love the detail on the pockets of the jeans. Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

  25. Sondra Koons says:

    You look like a million bucks (or chocolate covered cherries) lol Tania! LOVE that jacket. I drool over nearly everything you wear because it’s exactly my style! I live in Okla and we have NO outlets where I live so very jealous over your ability to buy everything at such bargin prices. I love QVC as well but hate paying full price for everything! Happy Valentines Day! ❤

    1. I am with you, Sondra, I hate paying full price for ANYTHING!

  26. Ziza Hysell says:

    That is one awesome outfit! LOVE IT! And you look fabulous in it!

  27. I love that red jacket, and the whole outfit actually! You look very classy! I go to estate sales a lot but have not had that kind of luck with the clothing! I’ll keep looking! I can see why you love the jacket!

    1. I don’t always have that kind of luck either, Karen.

  28. Have a lovin’ Valentine’s day!

  29. Tania, fabulous outfit and Happy Valentine’s Day! I told my husband years ago not to dare spend crazy money on flowers and instead I get them for no reason at all on random days which I find more fun. Those strawberries do sound delicious, enjoy!

    1. I am with you, Cristina. I love my sheepskin shoes he bought me for no reason better than I would roses because everyone else is buying them.

  30. Barb Klinepeter says:

    I am really enjoying your blog. I found you when I did a search on Pinterest with dressing over 50. I love your style, exactly like mine.

  31. I’ve discovered over the years Tania that the best way to give my hubby a hint is to just come straight out and ask for what I want, subtlety is lost on him ?

  32. Oh, this is my kind of outfit, Tania – a neat pair of jeans with a lovely jacket – I love to dress up my jeans like that!!!! And WOW, that necklace and earrings are out of this world – LOVE it!!!!! Beautiful bag and cute red booties!!!!
    Enjoy those strawberries and have a great Valentine’s Day!!!!

  33. Wow Tania – you look adorable in the red jacket and booties – a real Valentine – Joe can be very happy!!!
