Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing plaid pants in the fall with a black poncho and taupe ankle boots

I can’t believe that it is already Wednesday. This week is flying by, and it will be the weekend before we know it. I went pumpkin shopping yesterday, and I have bought a few yellow mums, so that means that it is now officially Fall. Lol! As my DIL and I were sitting in her vehicle, I noticed that the leaves were swirling around in the air, and I couldn’t help but think that it was time for apple cider. Lol! That is my go-to drink in the Fall, so I went by the store and grabbed me a gallon.

There are certain things that all of us do as our seasonal rituals. I have already started to think about the foods that I love in Fall, such as homemade chili and vegetable beef soup. I have some sweet peppers that need to be used soon, so I think that I’ll make up a batch of spaghetti sauce and put it in the freezer. Sometimes I feel like a squirrel that needs to prepare for the winter months ahead because I want to start filling my freezer at this time of the year. That FoodSaver that I showed you a while back (here) has been working overtime this past week, and I just got in another shipment of bags for this week’s batch of goodies. Lol! What are your fall rituals???

Last week on my Tuesday Try-On Post, I showed you this same poncho, but in a blueish color. I ordered this black poncho also because I knew that I would be able to wear it a lot this Fall. I love the deep v-neck of the poncho and the 3/4 length sleeves. Both of those features are very flattering to most people, so I look for clothing that features them. This poncho is lightweight and is perfect for transitioning into Fall. I recommend wearing a tank top or camisole under the poncho since it has a deep slit up the sides. You can wear this poncho with leggings, so this would be perfect for throwing on as you head out the door to run errands. It would almost look like you “dressed” to go out instead of wearing leggings. Lol! This poncho does come in three other colors, so check that out.

I am betting that all of you have been looking at this long statement necklace that I am wearing. The necklace is crafted of lightweight resin in gorgeous ombre colors with a suede cording. IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!! I love wearing long necklaces for the same reason that I like a v-neck sweater; they both elongate your neck. The long necklace draws your eye downward, which helps to make you look taller and thinner! Woohoo!!! I also added the matching earrings because they are cute and lightweight. You can grab both of these items at 25% off by using the code 86754

Plaid and Fall go hand in hand. But, wearing plaid pants in fall can be tricky, but this look is chic and stylish. I love the brown and black checks against the creamy background on these plaid pants. The really cute and unique detail is the peek-a-boo zip slits in the front. That slit is perfect for showing off your booties, or you can zip it closed it you are just wearing flats. I ordered my usual size 10, but these are too snug for me at the waist. They look good on, but they are uncomfortable, so I am sending back to see if I can get a bigger size. Since these pants are under $35.00, they are a steal!!!

You probably saw these boots in my yesterday’s try-on post. But, here is a much better photo of the boots, and maybe you can see why I was so crazy over them. This caramel color is my favorite for boots, and I am drawn to it all of the time. But, it is the buckle detail and the higher rise on these boots that sent me over the top. The pointy toe and chunky heels are very modern looking and trending for Fall. These are super cute, and they run true to size. These ankle boots are by Sam Edelman, and if you look closely, you will see a small SE logo on the heel and buckle. I love it when a company pays attention to details like that.

The Carson Tory Burch Tote is a splurge purchase, or at least it was for me. I was able to grab it when it was on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so at least that helped some. I have a weakness when it comes to handbags, and I will spend money on them that I won’t on anything else. I know ladies who spend 400.00 and 500.00 on shoes, and that is not my thing. So, I guess we all have our weaknesses, just in different areas. Lol! I’ll link to a few more similar, but more affordable, tote options also.

This is the look that you have when you are soooo tired of changing clothes in the back of a vehicle, and you still have two more outfits to take photos of. Lol! If you see some blonde yanking off her top in a random parking lot, just look the other way and say to yourself, “that poor woman must be a blogger.” Lol!!!

    Tania, I love the Sam Edelman boots! Honestly… Are they comfortable? I’m wanting a pair of tan and black booties to wear with dresses as well as tuck pants/leggings in, or wear overtop. Are they this versitle? I really like the look of them! Thank you so much for your hard work on your blog. I love looking at it each morning!
