A gold sweater and navy pants worn by Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not OldWe had the best time the other night. Joe’s sister and her family came up for Christmas and spent the night. We played lots of games, which is not something that we ever do. Ashleigh set up a relay game, and we played the boys against the girls. It was hilarious, and everyone got super competitive. We had a cup stacking station, then a station for a ping pong ball toss, a station for a nerf gun target shooting, and the final station was cup flipping.
A gold sweater and navy pants with a scarf worn by Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not OldWe had so much fun that we played the game several times. The next part of the night was for opening presents, and we had a game set up for that also. Everyone brought a neutral gender gift, and then each person drew out a sheet of paper that gave you directions on how to switch gifts. We all drew out a slip of paper three different times before we got to open the presents. The gifts turned out to be pretty good for each person. The night was topped off with a game of jelly beanboozled. Each person would spin a dial that told you what color of jelly bean to choose. The jelly bean would either be a great flavor like butter popcorn, or something terrible like spoiled milk. It was hilarious to watch the faces of the people who picked the yucky jelly bean. I think my sister-in-law was the most unlucky person who ended up getting spoiled milk, stink bug, and a barf bean. Lol!
A gold sweater and a printed scarf worn by Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not OldThe shimmer v-neck sweater is so subtle. It has a metallic thread that runs through the sweater, but it isn’t flashy. The sweater is soft and comfortable, and very flattering. I am wearing a size medium in this sweater, and it fits me perfectly. Here is the link to the sweater, which is one sale for only 19.88.
A gold sweater with Kendra Scott earrings worn by Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not OldThe only jewelry that I added is the Sophee drop earrings from Kendra Scott. These earrings are a 2.75″ drop, and they come in four different colors. The earrings are 14K gold plate over brass, and they are a beautiful design. I think the design looks Moroccan and elegant. These earrings can be worn with jeans for a casual look, or with a dress for a night out on the town. Kendra Scott is having a sale on certain styles, see here. These earrings aren’t on sale, but you can still get them for 20% off if this is your first purchase from the website by using my code.
A gold sweater and navy pants with cow print shoes worn by Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not OldThis is the first time that I have worn my cow print pumps. I looked for a pair of these shoes when I was going to Nashville earlier this year, but I couldn’t find a pair I liked until I finally found these. Since leopard print is considered a neutral, then I figured that I could also wear my cow print shoes as a neutral.

A gold sweater and navy pants worn with cow print pumps and a scarf by Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not OldI don’t usually tuck in shirts or sweaters into my pants, but I wanted to show you my sailor pants. I bought these pants earlier this year, and I love how nice these pants are. The gold buttons add a touch of elegance to the pants, but you can also wear the pants without showing the buttons. I like ankle-length pants, especially when you want to show off a cute pair of shoes. Lol! My pants are navy, but the only color left in this style is black. The black pair is on final sale, so make sure of your size before you order them. They do run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 10, and they fit me perfectly. Here is the link to the black pants.

  1. Happy Saturday, Tania! One of my goals this year is to dial back some of the busyness and enjoy more time on my favorite blogs.! I like the way you successfully mixed prints in this look with your accessories. It works. And, yes, I have memory lapses all the time…I guess it comes with being over 50 and having so much on my mind!

      Good morning, Pam! It is nice to hear from you. You are right about busyness, it needs to be dialed back so we can enjoy the things in life that we cherish.

    Love the entire outfit! No comment on what pulled it into greatness….The scarf! 😀Fair skinned people need that pop. You have beautiful delicate skin tone and wearing pale neutrals is blah.

      Earline, I must have forgotten the scarf. lol! I was so tired by the time that I finished the post that it slipped my mind.

    Hello Tania! I love how you made the light colored sweater look much better with the lovely scarf. My daughter gave me a purple scarf for Christmas that looks pretty much like yours. Spending time with family during the holidays is the best!

    Those shoes are to die for! They really class up the cute outfit! I love those sailor pants. They remind me of when I used to wear my Dad’s sailor jeans when I was a Sr. In high school! Enjoy every min. Of your extended Christmas w such a big great family!

  5. I love this look. That just may be the perfect sweater. It looks comfortable and soft and that neutral color is one of those that goes with a lot of others. Like wine pants, maybe? I just bought a pair and I have boots in the same color as that sweater. If I add my teal, beige, wine scarf, I could be styling like Tania in no time, : )

  6. 1st…I love the games Ideas, esp the jelly beans!! Will try this one with my crazy family. I love your style and that is a great scarf tie… for my 5′ 1/2″ frame it elongates…any little bit helps! Always inspiring!

  7. Love the shoes! Love how the sweater pops with a pretty scarf. Not really a fan of the pants though.

    Looking everywhere for cow print shoes with a shorter heel… Any suggestions? I can’t find brown just black and white.

    Tania, is it possible for you to describe how you tied your scarf?

I would love to hear from YOU!
