The one good thing about not feeling good one day, is your sure appreciate how good you feel the next day. My issue was weather-related. There was a high-pressure system sitting over Virginia, and that triggered my sinuses to act up, which gave me a raging headache. The raging headache led to tension in the neck, and it hurt so bad that I couldn’t raise my arms. So, what do you do when you feel that bad? You take medicine, but I should have remembered that I hadn’t eaten anything all day.

Talk about being foolish, taking medicine on an empty stomach is just asking for trouble. I had forgotten that the only thing that I had eaten for lunch was some french fries from McDonald’s. I hadn’t eaten from a restaurant in ages, but when I get these headaches, french fries are usually one of the only things that help with them, so I ran through the drive-through. Oh my goodness, those french fries tasted soooo good! But, by the time that I took medicine 4 hours later though, the food was long gone. Note to self, and all of the rest of you, EAT before you take medicine. Lol! Anyway, I am feeling much better today, the weather front has moved along, and I learned my lesson about medicine. Goes to show you, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Hahaha! ? ?

This is probably a shirt that Joe will roll his eyes over since he is not a fan of ruffles around the neck. But, “I” am a fan, and I love this white shirt. The ruffles give this a unique detail that sets this shirt apart from the thousands of white shirts that are out there are the market. I think that the ruffle detail gives you a feminine look, and I love adding those types of details. Unless I overlooked the white shirt on the website, it has already sold out. I know that I debated back and forth on which color to order, the navy blue or the white, and the navy one is all that I can find now. I am wearing a size medium for sizing reference, and I think that it fits me nicely. But, if you are in-between sizes, then I would size up. HERE is the link for the navy shirt, and I’ll link to some other white shirts that I also liked.

I am wearing the Maggie filigree hoop earrings today, and the Elisa triple strand necklace with an ivory mother of pearl drop pendant. I love these pieces since they go with everything, which you should already know since I wear them all of the time. It makes it so easy to grab a piece of jewelry when you are confident that it is going to enhance any outfit that you wear. I also added the Fallyn cuff bracelet and the Maggie bangle bracelet for the same reasons. You will be happy to hear that I got in three new earrings from Kendra Scott so that you will soon be seeing more variety from me. They are the Didi silver filigree earrings, the Val hoop earrings with crystals, and the Alice drop earring in gold. These are all gorgeous, and I have them on the Instagram stories if you want to see the size of them.

I am surprised at how much I have worn my Sperry white slip-on sneakers, and it is not even in the midst of summer yet. Sneakers are not my thing, but I like these. These are more of a fashion sneaker than an athletic sneaker. These sneakers look great with shorts, dresses, or jeans. Here is a post where I even wore them with a skirt, and I think they look adorable with it. I think that you will find them very versatile once you start wearing them. I am wearing a size 8 1/2 instead of my usual size 9. So, be sure and size down at least half a size if you order them. HERE is the link to the sneakers.

Here is another 5″ pair of shorts in a gingham print. I have some other shorts in longer lengths that I will be styling shortly so that you can see the different looks. For reference, I am 5’6″ tall, so that you can gauge how long the shorts would look on you. I love a gingham print, so when I saw these, I had to grab them. These are by J.Crew Factory, and you might have seen where J.Crew and J.Crew Factory took bankruptcy lately. They are just a few of the many stores that might not survive the COVID virus crisis. I am wearing my usual size 10 in these shorts, and they fit me great. Here is a link to the shorts, and I’ll add a few others below in different lengths or colors.

Because I’ve had a couple of people message me about my new doormat that I posted about that (HERE), I thought I would mention it for a few days. I bought this at Frontgate, and it is so nice and very thick. In fact, I have been known to stub my toe when I am taking pictures since I am not used to its height. Lol! HERE is the link to this incredible doormat.FASHION BLOGGER 50 Is Not Old wearing a sleeveless top with a ruffled placket and green gingham shorts with a pair of white slip on sneakers.

      Annie, there are days when I want to cover my arms also, so I do that with a lightweight cardigan, like the one that I bought from Walmart.

    LOVE the ruffles! I have one that I found through one of your previous posts and it just feels so nice to wear, and the ruffles make it special but not fancy!

    Glad you are feeling better… it could be the salt in the fries. Looking good.

      I think it is the salt in the french fries and the caffeine and sugar in the Coke.
