DSC_0019 - Version 2Hi everyone! Guess what??? Today is my blog anniversary, it has been 10 whole months. I started the blog on September 6th just on a whim. My sister had been after me for a year to start a blog on something, but I held back. I didn’t know anything more than anyone else, I was not an expert in any field. Why on earth would anyone read what I had to say, or how would they even find me? I live in a very remote part of the country, at least two hours from what most people would call civilization.50 IS NOT OLD | HANDKERCHIEF TOPBut for some odd reason, on that day in September, I threw my hat into the blogging atmosphere. I figured no one but my sister would ever see the blog, so what the heck! I would just “go for it!” I thought about talking about family, friends, aging, makeup, and a whole host of other things. However, when I sat down to a keyboard, I quickly find found out that I had nothing to say. Lol! So, I just took a picture of what I was wearing and put it on the blog. Not a lot of talking, I had no idea where to even go with this thing. I had to call my sister and have her tell me how to even “link” to clothing. It was pretty uneventful.50 IS NOT OLD | HANDKERCHIEF TOPI didn’t tell a soul, with the exception of my sister. Not my friends, mother, children, or my husband. No one in town knew, and I thought it would stay that way. In my mind I had decided that if I was still blogging by January 1st, then telling everyone close to me would be my resolution. Turns out my secret didn’t stay secret that long. I finally fessed up to Joe when he was getting concerned as to why I was taking my picture everyday. My daughter “stumbled” upon my pictures on Instagram and told her brothers. Pretty soon the cat was out of the bag, and everything was in the open. By that time, I was a little more secure in what I was doing, and not afraid of looking like a fool. (That will be when I post the video’s I took today, you just wait!) 50 IS NOT OLD | HANDKERCHIEF TOPSo, ten months later, here I am. Learning as I go, and hopefully getting better every month. Let’s talk about today’s outfit. Do you like it? I love the colors in this top! The coral, teal, navy, tan, and white all flow really well together. I’m not sure, but I think this type hem is called a handkerchief. If it’s not, it should be. Lol! This one is by HeartSoul and I bought it at TJ Maxx a couple months ago. This is the first time that I have worn it. I put it with a pair of tan bermuda shorts, and a pair of teal shorts, but I didn’t like it with either one. I had almost decided that it was the way the top was made, and that I had made a bad purchase.

Handkerchief Top: Similar | Similar | Plus50 IS NOT OLD | HANDKERCHIEF TOPBut, when I put it with these blue jean capri’s, I immediately liked the look. I bet it would have looked adorable with ankle skinny jeans, rolled with a cuff. I will try that next time! These cuffed capri jeans are several years old. They are an Izod brand, and I like that they are not a skinny jean. I love skinny jeans, but it is nice to occasionally mix it up a little.

Cuffed Capri Jeans: Vera Wang | Kut from the Kloth | Style & Co. (plus)50 IS NOT OLD | HANDKERCHIEF TOPI warned you that this top was not what it seemed. I feel a tad bit exposed in this top without the cardigan. There is nothing indecent about the top, it is just laking some extra material. Haha This would be fine for the beach, or on vacation. BUT, I think that if I am running around town, I’ll just keep my cardigan on. My cardigan is a Joan Rivers that I bought at the QVC overstock outlet, but you can find a navy cardigan almost anywhere.

Navy Cardigan: Similar | Similar | Plus50 IS NOT OLD | HANDKERCHIEF TOPI have on a Plunder necklace that is not in the catalog. It is a special item that will only be for sale untill it sells out. The tassel on the necklace is the “perfect” match for this top! This necklace is called the Trudy, and there is a matching necklace called the Stevie that looks great when worn together. If you purchase any of the Plunder jewelry, just type my stylist number in the box when you go to checkout (241007). I have started an online party, and there is a dropdown box where you can choose Tania’s P Party at checkout. If you would like to have an online or FaceBook party, contact me and I will help you set everything up.50 IS NOT OLD | HANDKERCHIEF TOPI have carried this Dooney & Bourke Patent leather satchel several times this years, go here to see the last time and a link to a very similar one. My Sperry Top Siders sandals are extremely comfortable. Here is where I wore them last, and a link.

    I absolutely love this outfit. The necklace gets lost in the print. I wonder how a gold or silver or metallic necklace would look? One that fills the neck area, but doesn’t drop below the blouse neckline.

    Good morning! I shared on Facebook. I love your tips and your video tutorials. I admire that you are willing to go naked-faced in front of the whole world. I’m thinking of trying the Reverse line by R&F. Love your blog!

      I really like the Reverse line, but I know it is quite a lot of money. Joe will even remind me at night to “Go do your face.” He can see the results, so he knows I want to keep up the routine.

  37. Great outfit, and I just found your blog – I’m super excited to see the outfits you put together every day! As a fellow blogger rapidly approaching 50 it’s definitely time to revamp my style – what suited me ten years ago definitely doesn’t fit the same way today!
