50 IS NOT OLD | JEANS AND A JACKET FOR A CASUAL LOOK | FASHION OVER 40Turning 59 wasn’t so bad. In case you missed yesterday’s blog post, I turned 59 years old on the 14th. I celebrated my birthday by going and having a mani/pedi that was way overdue. I hate sitting still for so long so I will put off going to the nail salon until it is a necessity. That is the same reason that I don’t get a lot of massages; I keep thinking of things that I need to be doing instead. Once again, Joe was out of town for Mother’s Day and my birthday. He goes to golfing every year with a group of men, and they always pick this time to be gone. This year, I am throwing a wrench in the works.
50 IS NOT OLD | JEANS AND A JACKET FOR A CASUAL LOOK | FASHION OVER 40Today, I am headed to North Myrtle Beach, which happens to be where Joe is golfing. Lol! He might think that he can escape me by going golfing, but I know how to change his plans. Actually, he is the one who wanted me to come down and stay for the rest of the week. He is going to let one of the guys drive his truck back home, and then we will drive back home together. I used to surprise him when we first got married by showing up on his doorstep unannounced. We lived apart for several months, and he would never know when I would show up. Lol! Keeping a man on their toes is good. Hahaha! The guys that he worked with back then would get a kick out of me showing up like that. They teased him that I was keeping tabs on him, but he would beam and smile. He liked being “made over” back then and he still does today. Lol! BTW, he bought me something nice for my birthday; he just doesn’t know that he did. Lol!!!
50 IS NOT OLD | JEANS AND A JACKET FOR A CASUAL LOOK | FASHION OVER 40Someone mentioned to me the other day that they would like to see me style an item in different ways. I don’t do that a lot anymore, because I thought that you would get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again. But, we have had a cold spell move through, and I wanted to wear a jacket. This linen blazer was perfect for today with enough warmth to keep me from getting cold, but it still looks like a spring outfit. I wore this blazer (here) earlier in the month, but a completely different style. Today’s look is more casual than the way that I wore the blazer earlier. The blazer is under 35.00, which is a real steal, and I am wearing a size 12. Here is the link.
50 IS NOT OLD | JEANS AND A JACKET FOR A CASUAL LOOK | FASHION OVER 40I am wearing a couple of bracelet sets combined. I love the Stacia and the Rachel bracelet sets when worn together. Each of these sets come with four bracelets, so I mix and match them together all of the time. The Stacia has more blue bracelets, and the Rachel has more of the gold and black bracelets. Since my outfit had all of those colors, I decided to wear all of them together. Lol! My Meadow black earrings picked up on the thin black stripe of the blazer and the black bracelets that I am wearing. These earrings are lightweight, and they are made of wood. I haven’t layered my necklaces much this year, but my bracelets inspired me. So, today I am wearing the Stormy, (shortest) the Vienna, (longest) and the middle length necklace is retired. The Gracie necklace is almost identical though; it just doesn’t have the blue bead attached. 

50 IS NOT OLD | JEANS AND A JACKET FOR A CASUAL LOOK | FASHION OVER 40I love these flared jeans by Leith. I think they are soooo flattering, and I look for them all the time. I’ll be honest; I don’t know if it is the color, the fit, or the flared leg that I like. All I know is that I get compliments every time that I put them on to wear. I didn’t fall off a turnip truck last night, so I know to wear clothing that looks nice. I am wearing my Clark perforated leather sandals, c/o QVC in the color sand. These are comfortable, fashionable, and the perfect neutral for almost anything. They come in seven different colors, so you are bound to find one (probably two) that you like. They run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size which is a nine. For the link to the jeans, click here and for the link to the shoes, click here.

    Happy Birthday one day late. We share the same-I turned 56 yesterday. Love your blog and style! Have a great week!

  2. Happy Birthday Tania (I know it was yesterday but I say celebrate all week)! I am the same way – I really do not enjoy sitting still so long to get a many/pedi but it sure looks good when it is done. Have a great trip!
    Love the outfit too – the striped blazer is terrific!

  3. Happy belated Birthday Beautiful Tania! You certainly look at least 10-15 years younger than 59. Love your outfit today.?. Have a wonderful week.??????

    • I just love your jacket and was just thinking about looking for something similar. Back in the 70s i had a grey flanel jacket with yellow stripes and would love another. Regards – Jill stylishatsixty

  4. Happy Belated Birthday Tania!!! You look fabulous and love your outfit today!

  5. Tania i cant sit still for very longer either so i get my pedi one day and usually get someone to go w me. then my mani i get another day after work im to tired to want to move around at that point lol. this is a great causal friday outfit for work ! love it

  6. Here I am telling you for two days in a row how great you look in your outfits. The coral dress yesterday was a stunner and I’d wear it to church in a heartbeat. Yet this stripe blazer and pair of flared JEANS has my heart pounding. I LOVE this! You look sharp and crisp as this morning’s lettuce. Safe travels to MB.

      I love all of your descriptions! They sound like me talking. Lol!!!

  7. Happy Belated Birthday! I really like what you styled today. I would love to see you do a post sometime on styling a white blouse or how to choose a versatile white blouse. It seems there are so many styles now that I’m having a hard time choosing one to give me more “bang for my buck.” Thanks, and I enjoy reading daily your blog!

      Gail, I NEED a white blouse. The one that I have on is the only one that I own, and it is really old. I may look at trying to find something.

    Happy Belated Birthday!!! Have a great trip!!! The beach is a wonderful place especially this time of year!!! 🙂

  9. This is my favorite outfit of the past couple of weeks. You share a birthday with my beautiful sweet late Mother. Enjoy your week.

  10. Happy Birthday (although a day late). Safe travels to North Myrtle Beach. I haven’t been in over a year and I miss that place. Time to get there. I remember my parents taking me and my two girls when they were little on one trip……now that I have two little grandsons maybe its time to re-create that trip. Its the perfect low key beach vacation.

  11. Happy belated BirthdayTania!! You look fabulous and you certainly do not look 59 years young! Your outfit would look great for a casual Friday! I just seen your coral dress from yesterday and that looked sooo pretty on you! Enjoy your trip to the beach….lucky girl?

  12. Hi Tania,
    Your blog is the best…thanks for keeping us well dressed 🙂
    I do have one request and that’s in the area of leggings, and how we should best wear them as we age, without looking like a teenager.
    Appreciate you!

    Love this look, Tania! Do you wear your normal size in the jeans?

    • Kristi Tandy Reply

      Happy, happy Birthday!! (a tad late. ?) I hope it was as amazing as you are!! ?????

  14. Hi Tania. This outfit looks classy. The white shirt and blazer are kickin! I also would like to see more leggings outfits for us ladies.
    Have a great time in North Myrtle Beach.

  15. Angie Chronister Reply

    I think this is one of me favorite outfits you’ve styled lately. Very flattering on you! I like to celebrate my birthday all month so party on girl!

  16. Happy Belated Birthday! We were in the mountains with limited internet so now back at North Myrtle and catching up on emails. Enjoy your stay, love living here! Maybe I’ll run into you, LOL. This outfit looks great on you. I’d definitely wear this.

I would love to hear from YOU!
