Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is lounging around the house in a teal soft chenille sweater and navy leggings

I had warned Joe yesterday that I was going to put him on the blog for his comment. So, the first thing that he said to me when I woke up was, “what did all of the gurls say?” Lol! He wasn’t worried at all about what I thought, but he couldn’t stand the thoughts of you gurls fussing at him. I had to laugh at him for worrying about that, and then I had to read him several of the comments.

He sure was glad to hear a few more women who had similar husbands, and he laughed at Linda’s comment about HIM doing the dishes while I walked on the treadmill. Lol! That was a clever response Linda; I’ll have to remember to use that on him again in the future because I am sure that he will stick his foot in his mouth again soon. I did break down and cook spaghetti for him for supper, and he bragged and bragged on how good it was. I think that he thought that I would make him eat crow for supper, so the spaghetti was a welcomed sight. Lol!

I know that I’ve been bringing many dressier options to you lately, so I thought that you might enjoy a soft, cozy, and lounging outfit for today. I recently bought this chenille sweater with the wide ribbing at the hem and sleeves, and it is wonderful! The website showed this as an off-the-shoulder look, but it is too dang cold to be running around in bare shoulders. So, I just wore it as a cowl neck instead, and I think it looks great. This is a thick sweater, and it is very chic looking even though I am wearing it with leggings. I am wearing a medium that fits me fine, but I think that I would like it to be even more oversized. I am seriously thinking about exchanging the medium and ordering the large instead. I love the light teal color, but it is also available in gray if that is not your color. The sweater is on sale for 40% off, so grab it before the sale goes off.

Here is an up-close look at the sweater. I know it is hard to see how nice and thick the material is, so you will have to take my word for it. The jewelry that I am wearing today is the Maggie filigree large hoops and the Tomon gold stretch bracelet set in dark teal. I love the tiny gold beads that make up each bracelet, and I love the slip-on style. I had my hand bent, so you couldn’t see that I was wearing the Phoenix wrap ring in vintage gold. This ring is the only snake that I like. Lol!

Who doesn’t like leggings? I love wearing leggings, but I prefer the Ponte knit version instead of the compression version. I don’t like feeling like a Boa Constrictor has eaten me, and instead, I like the kind that is snuggly. I have several different brands that I really like, and I’ll link to them below. The pair that I have on in this post is by Lou & Grey, and I always size up in leggings so that they don’t fit so tight.

I thought that you might like to see the back view to see the length of the sweater. I decided to wear my Sperry sneakers with today’s look. I had to size down in these and order an 8 1/2 instead of my usual size 9. But, once I sized down, they fit me great. I hardly ever wear socks, but I bet that this look is freezing some of you. Lol!

I saw that several of you were already done with your Christmas shopping and were looking forward to starting the wrapping process. I used to love wrapping and would spends hours wrapping and tying bows. I would buy coordinating wrapping paper, and all of the bows would be hand-tied and elaborate. Now, I am lucky if the package gets put inside a gift bag. Lol! I told my DIL that I would wrap some fake boxes to put under the tree and repeatedly use the same ones year after year.

    I would ordinarily message you on Instagram but I decided to take a break on social media till Jan. So….

    I ordered this in teal, size M. I was shocked how LONG it was. I tried it with crop jeggings and because I’m so short it looked so stupid! So. Checked WHBM and it’s still on sale! So I ordered a Large. It was snug over the chest on me but I’m a 34DDD and the upper arm part of the sleeves was a bit tight. I am keeping the medium to give to my size 6 daughter. On thanksgiving she wore a loose off shoulder black sweater so I’m hoping she likes it. Otherwise it’s going back.

    Incidentally this may be fixed by the time you read it but the Chico’s group of companies is offering two day free shipping through shoprunner. I believe it’s only in conjunction with Apple Pay which is fine with me since Apple Pay gives me 3% on purchases. I placed an order with both WHBM and Chico’s and the site was very slow.

      The clock is in my hall, and for some reason, it showed up through the glass.

    Oh Joe, you are so bad. Your wife is a beautiful, hot woman and you’re lucky to have her! She even made you dinner after your nasty comment. Seriously, I think you look amazing Tania, and you make me want to shop! BTW, I’d like to see a picture of Joe so we can comment on his appearance. LOL!
    God bless, Amy

    I love virtually everything you feature however most of the time I am able to restrain myself….but not today! I love that sweater so I have ordered one. Alas, it is being delivered to my US address and will be a treat when I return from my Canadian home in January.
    You are a part of my morning routine on both sides of the border!

      Elizabeth, this made me laugh. My restraint is low right now because I am buying for others, so I will sneak a few things in for me too. Lol!
