HOW TO MIX AFFORDABLE AND HIGH-END CLOTHING TOGETHER

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a baby blue cardigan and a Lilly Pulitzer top with bootcut jeans and espadrille sandalsI want to thank all of you who left a comment or private messaged me about the name of my blog. I appreciate all of the input, but I am still in limbo about a decision. There isn’t a rush or a deadline, so I am not going to stress about it for now. I did enjoy hearing your thoughts, and also how you came to find me in your searches. And, some of you mentioned that you have been in marketing, so I know that you understand about the word “old” and “50” as being words that are searched a lot.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a baby blue cardigan and a Lilly Pulitzer top with bootcut jeans and espadrille shoesMy thoughts for changing the name doesn’t even have to do with my age. I know several blogs with the number 40 in them, and the bloggers are older than me. Most of them don’t publicly tell their age as I do, so most people have no idea how old they are. I would venture to guess that most of you are in your 50s or older who are reading my blog. I did see a few comments yesterday that they were in their 40s, but I bet 50 is soon on the horizon. Look at today’s outfit. Now, my question to you is this, do you have to be 50 and over to wear this? Next question, if you were 35, would you follow a blog with the word “50” in it? My point is this; by keeping the 50 in the title, I am limiting the age group that will come to my blog without even giving the outfit a chance. It looks like I am back to doing a coin toss unless one of you who know more about marketing, branding, and SEO than I do can point me in the right direction.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a blue cardigan and a Lilly Pulitzer top The other day, someone mentioned that they loved the fact that I mixed high-end products with cheaper, more affordable items. That is one of my favorite things to do when it comes to fashion. I will pay more for some items that I know that I will get lots of wear from, and things that I feel will be trendy or that I know will be easily replaced will be something that I look for affordable choices. Today’s blog post has a mixture of both items. The beautiful blue cardigan that I have on today is lightweight and perfect for this spring. I love the baby blue color, and I love the relaxed fit of the cardigan. I am wearing a medium, and you can see that it is plenty roomy on me. This cardigan is a fine gauge knit with a ribbed hem and cuffs. It is rayon and polyester, and it is machine washable. The cardigan comes in a lot of other colors, including a bright pink that I think I am also going to order. Since the cardigan is less than 10.00, I believe that I’ll also order the yellow and pale pink ones too. LOL! HERE is the link to the sweater.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a Lilly Pulitzer top The Essie tank top from Lilly Pulitzer is drop-dead gorgeous! For a color-loving girl, this tank top is da bomb! Here is the funny thing, I’ve never been a huge fan of Lilly Pulitzer because I felt like a lot of the clothing looks the same. This is probably my first Lilly top, and I am trying hard not to be hooked. But, honestly, I love everything about this top, and I know that it is not going to be my last purchase.

The top is a size medium, and since this was my first time ordering with them, I was scared that it would be too small. Instead, it fits like someone came to the house and measured me while I was asleep. I love all of the colors, and I can’t wait to wear this with white crops or shorts this summer. I am getting excited just thinking about it. Lol! HERE is the link to this top, and I’ll link a few more that I am eyeing, and some of them might already be at my house. LOL!

These are a pair of wedges that I bought the other day from Target, and I like how they fit. Also, I like the two-tone color of these shoes that is blush pink and white, even though I was skeptical when I ordered them. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these shoes, and I think that they fit me great. These are on sale right now, so hurry and get your order placed. HERE is the link. Here are a few other shoes that you will like that don’t have so high of a heel.

They are the Zanzibar hoop earrings, and they have just a tiny bit of bling on them. HERE is the link to those.

The jeans that I am wearing are by JAG jeans, and they are the bootcut Eloise jeans. I wore those in this post (here), but I am afraid that the Eloise is sold out of regular sizes, but you can still grab it in Petite and Plus. However, bootcut jeans are very popular right now, so you have plenty of others to choose from. I like how they balance out your body shape, and I have become a huge fan of this style lately. I still love my skinny jeans, but these are trying hard to win my heart. Lol!
