HOPING TO BRING SOME SUNSHINE TO YOUR DAY

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is looking vacation ready in a striped maxi dress, a seashell necklace, and a large wide brim hat

 

I’m hoping to bring a little sunshine your way today. It was a beautiful day here in Virginia, and Joe and I even took the time to wash my car. No, I didn’t wash the car in this outfit. Lol! And, for the record, I mostly watched while he washed it, but I did help a little. I wanted to quickly get this dress on the blog for you since many things have been selling out lately. I’ll be surprised if this dress doesn’t sell out before the day is through.

So many of you have been loving a few things that I’ve put on the blog lately, like the large travel duffle from Vera Bradley that I posted about here. I agree with all of you; it is adorable and makes traveling so much more fun. And, the code TANIA is good for 30 days from the date of my post, so don’t forget to use that for 10% off your order.

Another item that flew off the shelves was this t-shirt dress! Oh, my word! Almost 200 of you bought this dress, and I can’t believe that it is still available.!!! It is still under $20.00, so I can see that y’all love a bargain!

Today’s dress isn’t under $20, but I think it is still a great bargain. I’ve seen dresses like this run for twice as much, but I’ve not seen many dresses any prettier. I absolutely LOVE all of the colors of the dress and how it doesn’t touch me anywhere. This dress is perfect for hot weather and for going on vacation. You can bet that it will be in my suitcase if I get to go to the beach this year.

I ADDED THIS LARGE PACKABLE WIDE BRIM HAT because I styled this dress as my “beach vacation” dress. I was shocked when I saw that the hat is packable, which was a big reason I made the purchase. I have tried (unsuccessfully) to pack straw hats for vacations before, and I always end up with crimped hats that don’t look good. This one is a flexible material, and it has done well on the short trips that I have taken it on so far.

These are the same Sketcher shoes that I wore in yesterday’s post. I wore the wedge slides with shorts in that post, and here I am wearing them with a dress. I mentioned yesterday about the comfort level of these shoes, and Julie agreed with me. She said, “Love the Sketchers sandals. I bought that same pair and loved them so much I ordered another pair in black. The black ones have different straps but the same heel, and both are so very comfortable.”

If you have ever tried Sketchers before, then you know how lightweight and comfortable these wedge slide sandals are! When I put them on for the first time, my foot just sank into the footbed. There aren’t many shoes that are this comfortable right out of the box. I am wearing my normal size 9, and they fit great.

Here is the photo that I showed you yesterday of the two handbags. The one on the left is my Ella tote by Tory Burch, and the one on the right is the canvas tote from Target. One of these handbags is a steal…you guess which one that it is. Lol!

The large statement seashell necklace is one that I’ve had for years, and it came from Soft Surroundings. It is no longer available, but I found some “similar” ones on eBay. Just scroll through them until you find one that you like. The other jewelry that I added to the look is the Savannah drop earrings in gold and the matching Savannah cuff bracelet, and the Rebecca stretch bracelet in white howlite and variegated turquoise.

I forgot to mention that I am wearing a size large in this gorgeous maxi dress. The dress runs true to size, but it is also a very relaxed-fitting style, so you could size down if you wanted.

Also, I am not sure if you noticed, but the dress has pockets!!! WooHoo! That seals the deal! Lol!!! Here are a few more dresses from this company that I thought you might like.

    You don’t get more comfortable looking than that dress. Don’t forget the MS Gulf Coast for vacay. We have 26 miles of white, man made beaches and the best restaurants anywhere. Gumbo, fried soft shells, shrimp creole. Are you hungry yet?

    You are ready for the beach. That dress and hat are adorable on you.
    I have a quick question. Can you tell me how to find the makeup video you did with your friends. I’m not on instagram so I watch after you post about it. Enjoyed the skin care video so much.
    You are so upbeat and positive and I look forward to reading your post. Thank you.

    You have the most amazing style. I bought the red dress you wore a few weeks back and boy is it beautiful. I’m going to wear it on my 57th birthday with a necklace I bought from you. I’m excited and thank you for all you do.
