50 Is Not Old | Lets Go ShoppingIt is Saturday, and that means it is time to do a little retail therapy. I work full time, so the only real time I get to shop, is on Saturday. I know you can go online any day, but with cooking supper, and then writing for the blog, who has time? So I have decided that every Saturday I will post the best deals I can find. It will be our own little private shopping spree. So, for all you Nascar fans, in the (adjusted) words of Darrel Waltrip, “Lets Go Shopping Gurls!”50 Is Not Old | Lets Go ShoppingGrab you cup of coffee or tea, keep on those pajamas, and settle down with a nice cozy blanket, and get ready to play. You may not really feel like buying anything, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look and plan for your next purchase. That’s like magazines, I love to look and get ideas, even when I don’t necessarily want to buy anything. For those of you who love a good bargain, go get the credit card, because some of these items will only have quantities of 1 or 2. I’ll wait right here while you get everything ready.

I am loving this gingham, 3/4 sleeve, button down shirt. Sizes from XS to XXL. Here is a 3/4 sleeve, fitted blazer, single button closure. Available in 7 different colors and from XS to XXL. Are we having fun yet?  Are you in the market for a black leather biker jacket? This one is marked down 556.00 dollars. Incredible! It is now 139.00.


I am obsessed with linen pants. Not the dressy linen pants, but the crinkled beach type. I bought a white pair from Old Navy last year, and nearly wore them out. I wore them with dress shirts, t-shirts, and even over bathing suit bottoms. You NEED a pair of this type pants. If not any of these, then be on the look out for a different pair. I bought another pair today in a light beige color, and I am super excited about them. Here is a pair from Old Navy in two different colors, and here is a pair that is navy and white striped. This is a white pair (misses) here is the plus size.


Here is a pair of leather Sam Edelman riding boots. They are on sale 1/2 off, so if you want a pair of quality boots for next fall and winter, size 6 to 10, this is a good deal. I love the comfortable look of these navy canvas sneakers. I looked all day for a pair of white pumps for the summer. White shoes are lacking in my wardrobe. Here is a pair of Marc Fishers. I hope they get them in at the QVC outlet. If you are a fan of the boho, 70’s style, then you are going to LOVE these shoes. I love the colors, but I am not a fan of platform shoes. I have long legs, and have battled my pants being too short all my life, so the added 1-2 inches is not something I ever embraced. However, I like them on others:) These TOMS open-toes wedge sandals are perfect for shorts, pants, or a dress. You would be able to get a lot of wear from them. This T-Strap Tommy Hilfiger sandal is the type I like to wear all summer long. They are elegant and classy, yet not horribly priced. 


If you don’t already have a pair of “good” sunglasses, you might want to look at these Ray Ban Wayfarer. These come in black or tortoise, and they are a classic style. This is a great deal on a leather crossbody drawstring bucket bag. I love Carlos Santana handbags. I have one that I bought 2 or 3 years ago, and I still carry it. This is a black clutch with a little edge. Perfect biker chick clutch. I think I might have to order this one. How about a “Heart of Gold” bangle bracelet?50 Is Not Old | Lets Go ShoppingNow for today’s outfit, it was raining this morning, so it was the perfect opportunity to wear my Hunter rain boots. Here is a pair of Hunter boots in several colors, and here is a similar pair for half the price. I am still carrying my Dooney & Bourke white purse with brown trim. Here is a similar handbag.50 Is Not Old | Lets Go ShoppingThis is one of the plaid shirt’s that my daughter left me when she was home over Christmas. She bought several of them at Buckle last year, but grew tired of them. Her loss, my gain. Haha  Here is a similar one from Lucky, and here is one from Old Navy.50 Is Not Old | Lets Go ShoppingI am wearing my mid-rise rockstar skinny jeans from Old Navy. Here is a plus size pair with a little distressing. For summer, you might want a pair of crop jeans, and here is a plus size.

    Thank you for posting about the linen pants!! I just ordered a white pair and a black pair. Old navy had 40% off everything today and free shipping for anything over $25. So I got both pairs of pants for under $40. Score!!!

  2. If you are still looking for white pumps check out Stein Mart. Saw a pair this week and almost bought them but decided to wait. I was on vacation and didn’t want to haul them in my luggage. I haven’t seen white pumps like this ever. I believe they were Aerosoles so they were comfortable too!!

    1. Thanks Teresa, I will check them out. I looked again at Belk, but came away empty handed:(

  3. Love your posts. I get some lot of good ideas from your pictures and links!

  4. YEAH!!! Another reason to look forward to Saturday’s!! Love all your shopping tips. The boots are TOO cute!!

    I would love to see you style your new linen pants. I bought a pair last year and just couldn’t figure out what to wear with them. Thanks for all the great links today!

  6. I really enjoyed the photos today. Love the bright colors! I’ve never had rain boots before but now I’m thinking of trying them. QVC had a pair with paw prints on them the other day that were adorable – being a cat lover, they called to me. They also had a bright plaid big shirt from Joan Rivers that I may try. You definitely help me with my style as I rebuild a smaller wardrobe. Thanks!

  7. Loved going shopping today!! It’s raining out today so I got to shop dry!!! Thanks.

  8. Those Tiffany blue Hunters always put a smile on my face! Heading to Old Navy to try on those linen pants! Nice “window” shopping with you gurl!

    1. I hope you find them in the store, Toni. If not, you at least know they are online.

  9. I like those linen pants but as I’ve aged and my middle has grown, I have a problem styling them. Also do you let them puddle around your feet? Would love to see some styling tips!

    1. Mine don’t puddle, probably because of my long legs. But, I would wear wedge shoes if they did. The linen is just so comfortable! I will be wearing it in the near future.
