Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is shopping in her Lululemon leggings and top 7

My daughter asked me if I wanted to go to a local shopping mall, and I, of course, said, YES! I didn’t fall off the turnip truck yesterday; I read between the lines and knew she meant, “I’m going shopping. Do you want to come along and pay for my things?” If I am going to pay for her things, I’m going to make her work for it. Lol! So, she got to photograph a small try-on haul you’ll see later and grab pics of my “retirement uniform” also.


Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is keeping active with a pair of Align leggings from LuLuLemon 1

Last Saturday, I did a post (HERE) on leggings, and it was an overwhelming favorite. Many of you had tried this brand before, and you were already a fan. Some of you were like me; you had heard of them and wondered if they would live up to the hype. I tried the above outfit, and I was hooked! So, I quickly placed another order (it helped that some items were on sale), and I’m bringing those to you today. Someone else mentioned another retailer they liked, and the price point was more affordable. I’ve ordered some things from them, and I’ll let you know my thoughts once I’ve tried them on.

If I’m going to be out and about for a while, I want to be comfortable. Who am I kidding??? I want to be comfortable every day of the week. Lol! When I get out of bed in the mornings, I usually throw on leggings and a t-shirt to work in before I shower and get cleaned up. Sometimes a neighbor or a delivery person will ring the doorbell, and I want to be presentable when I open the door.

Nulu Short Sleeve T-Shirt

Since I hadn’t tried this brand before, I wasn’t sure of the sizing when I placed my first order. The white top above was a tad large on me, so I sized down for this Back In Action Short Sleeve T-Shirt in Lunar Rock. The tee is soft, comfortable, and lightweight. This color is unusual, and at first, I wasn’t sure I was a fan, but it has grown on me. It is the buttery softness that gets me with this brand; I am hoping they will come out with a loose top like this with a v-neck. I’m wearing an 8 in this color, and I was wearing a 10 in the white tee above.

The great thing about this tee is that you look as cute going as you do coming. Your bum is completely covered, so I don’t care who walks behind me when I am out running around town.

I’ve been wearing these Sperry Crest Vibe Canvas Sneakers for a few years. I LOVE the no-tie laces, and even though the canvas shoes get dirty, I throw them in the washer, and they come out just like new. They run a little big, so I sized down to an 8 1/2 instead of my usual size 9.

Everywhere Belt Bag

The Everywhere Belt Bag is as handy as a pocket on a shirt. Lol! That is one of Joe’s favorite sayings, which is true about this bag. I love carrying it when I’m running errands since it holds my phone, lip gloss, AirPods, and keys. This is one of their best sellers, and it sells out all of the time. I saw it was back in stock earlier this week, and now the only color available is Autumn Orange. Here are a few more, and there are many colors in each of them, including black.

Align 25″ Leggings

The Align Leggings I wore last week were the 23″ crop version, and these are the 25″ ones. I wanted to try the longer ones, and since these were on sale, I figured it was the perfect time to try them. Because I ordered the 23″ crops before, I knew that a size 10 was perfect for me. The 25″ leggings are on Final Sale, so you can’t send them back, but since I knew my size, I wasn’t worried. These fit me just as well and are buttery soft to the touch. I bought these and a few other items and will share the colors I purchased. The widget (how I show my links) won’t let me change the photo to the items, so I can’t show you the color or pattern.

    your dream retirement outfit is mine has been since I retired from nursing a number of years ago lol

  2. Just ordered this one because it looks so cute and comfy on you! Love me some Lululemon. I have been wearing it for years. It’s pricey, but worth it because it holds up really well. Just wash in cold water and hang to dry and the pieces look brand new for years.

  3. This is my kind of outfit!! I just about wear something like this every day. I’m always inspired by you and all your great outfits & taste, but I always go back to the basic leggings and t-shirt.

  4. Love everything except the purse. I love crossbodys, but this style reminds me too much of Fanny packs, which I have never liked.

  5. Fran Lardner says:

    Love the leggings! They look so cute on you!

  6. Donna-Jane says:

    And lululemon is Canadian eh!!!! I’ve been wearing lulu for years I do love this color combo on you too Tania!

  7. LOVE this outfit ! Thanks for the tip on the leggings! Can’t wait to try them! Looks like you are at the Pinnacle! My daughter always invites me along for the same reason….LOL! But I always go!

    1. Sherre, I was at the Pinnacle. It was a beautiful day, and we had a great time.

  8. Tanya, you look great. I remember from previous posts that you had been exercising and make changes. Any recommendations for menopause weight gain? I am exercising and counting calories like usual but nothing is happening. I gotta get these 10 lbs off.

    1. Shannon, I honestly don’t exercise much. I never count calories, I am trying to eat healthier, but that is a constant struggle, and I am doing IF.

    1. Thanks, Anne! I love cute and comfy clothing.

  9. Comfy without sacrificing style and you look great! Love the color! I have each of these pieces and wear them all the time too. Catching them on sale makes it even better😀

    1. Judy, then you know how amazing these products are!
