50 IS NOT OLD | FALL TRANSITION OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40When I walked outside Friday morning, I mentioned to Joe that it was crisp looking. It had the kind of look that is associated with the fall of the year. How can that be since it has been so hot for the past couple of weeks? It made me start thinking about how fast summer is flying by, and how quickly fall is approaching.
50 IS NOT OLD | FALL TRANSITION OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40Joe mentioned that fall is probably his favorite time of the year. The weather is not too hot, and not too rainy like it is in the spring. The fall foliage is beautiful, and it is time for all of the kiddos to head back to school. I look forward to Halloween, it is one of my favorite times of the year and seeing all of the pictures of the kids dressed up in their costumes. It is also when my grandkids in Tennessee celebrate their birthdays with a big Halloween themed birthday party, complete with a bonfire, smores, and a hayride. The only thing that I don’t look forward to in the fall is all of the leaves falling. The mountains look bare when the leaves fall, and this area of the country starts to look sad. But, for now, I am just going to enjoy today.
50 IS NOT OLD | FALL TRANSITION OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40Because the crisp weather makes me think about fall, I decided to style a transition look. This sleeveless sweater in this deep gold color is perfect for fall. I think that the top is the color that the leaves will be turning once fall arrives. I love the deep v-neck of the top, and I also like the cross-over of the hemline. The hemline is very flattering as it seems to hug your hips. I bought this top at the Loft Outlet, and here is the link.
50 IS NOT OLD | FALL TRANSITION OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40The Rosalynn necklace will be perfect for the upcoming fall season. The leopard print design with burgundy beads on an antique chain screams fall! The pattern will vary on each necklace. It is adjustable from 36.5″ – 39.5″. There are matching earrings called Charleen, but I decided to wear the Bennett instead. The Bennett has a mustard twine ball with tassel & feather and a 4″ drop. I am wearing a stack of bracelets. They are from the gold link downward, Lelani, one from the Stacia set, and one from the Randee set.
50 IS NOT OLD | FALL TRANSITION OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40I got ready Friday morning, took my pictures, and then went to the lumber company to work for several hours. When I went to the post office, I had a little surprise in the mail from one of my wonderful readers. Selma had emailed me that she was going to make me a handmade crocheted bag, but I never envisioned it in my mind like this. I think that I was thinking more like macrame cord, instead of yarn. I loved it, and it just matched what I was wearing. So, when I got back to the house, I took a few more photos of my outfit to show you how cute the bag looks. Thanks so much, Selma, it is beautiful!!!
50 IS NOT OLD | FALL TRANSITION OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40I wanted to start getting used to the idea of wearing ankle boots again, so this is my transition to that look. These are a pair of Clarks that were courtesy of QVC. The style is Valarie James; they have a perforated upper, a peep toe,  and an ankle hook-and-loop closure. They are leather and have added an insole and a textured outsole. The best part…they are on a Black Friday special price. Click on the picture below to go to the website.

50 IS NOT OLD | FALL TRANSITION OUTFIT | FASHION OVER 40The waterfall vest is an old one that I bought years ago. I liked the color, so I have kept it over the years. I don’t wear vests often, and instead, wear cardigans, but the effect is the same. I have on a pair of Leith flare leg jeans. I am starting to get partial to the flare leg style, and I think they look great with ankle boots. You won’t be able to wear this style tucked into knee boots because of the extra material, but you could still wear the ankle boot under the jeans.

      I’m not sure if she sells them, Amy? I bet they take a long time to make.

  3. Love this outfit! I’m moving to Florida and was wondering how I could look “fall” when it will still be so hot outside. This type of outfit would work perfectly. The bag is great too!

    • Tania Reply

      Yes, Beth, this would be great for areas that are hot, like Florida.

    Love this outfit! When you first pictured that vest a couple years ago I actually ran right out to get it and drove to a store about 30 min away to get it because the store in my town was out of them! LOL! And I still love that vest! This morning it was those shoes ….had me at hello and got them ordered. Thinking fall ! The purse is a precious gift!

    • Tania Reply

      Oh, Deborah, I hate that you drove for 30 minutes and they didn’t have want you wanted. Call the store next time, or just order online, that is way easier. Lol!

      • Deborah Broughton Reply

      I am glad that you like the outfit, and the purse is too adorable!

  7. Hi Tania! What size are you wearing in the sweater tank? I can’t wear that color of yellow, but I’d love to get the black one. What a great transitional piece to wear now and later!

    • Tania Reply
