PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLED

50 IS NOT OLD | PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLEDYou can plan and plan and plan, but things just don’t pan out like you would want. Plans sometimes get cancelled. I was just looking up Murphy’s Law. It states, that “Anything That Can Go Wrong, Will Go Wrong.” Lol! If you haven’t heard, the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Florida got cancelled this year because of Hurricane Hermine. Wouldn’t you just know it, the very time I have a trip to Panama City Beach, and a hurricane comes through. There hasn’t been a hurricane in ELEVEN years. Seriously, I hate it for all the folks involved. I hope the destruction is kept to a minimum. I know it will be a big blow to shop owners, hotels, and the city for the lack of money that would have been coming their way this Labor Day.50 IS NOT OLD | PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLEDJoe and I had already packed and we had been on the road for about an hour. He decided to stop and go grab a bite to eat. We each had a salad, after all I was going to have on a bathing suit the next day, and then left. I pulled up my emails, only to see that the event had been cancelled. BUMMER!!! We thought about going somewhere else since we were already packed, but decided in the end to just come back home. I won’t lie, it was somewhat of a let down. I was looking forward to getting away for a few days, just Joe and I, and acting like kids. Oh well, there is always next year! Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLEDAfter we got home, I unpacked, and then proceeded to but lots and lots of Plunder jewelry. There is a brand new line that just went on sale today, so I ordered several pieces to be able to show you. I told Joe that I had to sacrifice for you gurls. How would you know there was new pieces if I didn’t show them to you. Haha I don’t think he bought it! I am also blown at how nice you gurls are. You could buy Plunder from another stylist, but you choose to buy from me. That is unbelievable!!! I have decided to not be like the cell phone companies, they only give rewards to “new” customers. I think the customers who have been loyal and stick with you also need rewarding. So, I am going to be giving away a necklace this month to two of my customers. I just want to randomly say thank you.50 IS NOT OLD | PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLEDI have on a mixture of vintage and new jewelry today. I purchased the red beads and the red polka dot bangle at a vintage fashion show years ago. These type necklaces are easy to wear either long, medium, or short. They are also very inexpensive. The short hanging arrow necklace is a new addition to my ever growing Plunder jewelry. The necklace is called the Harper, and it has a matching bracelet (Bonny) that I have worn several times. (here and here) If you wish to purchase anything from Plunder, I would appreciate it if you went to my website. You have to type in http://www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens or you can enter my stylist number in the “box” when you go to checkout. #24100750 IS NOT OLD | PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLEDHere is a closeup of my By The Book Bracelets that I bought while visiting my sister last fall. You can purchase these through Christian Books. My favorite bracelet is the one that has Jeremiah 29:11.50 IS NOT OLD | PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLEDHere is another simple T-Strap sandal. This one is by Marc Fisher, and it is really red. I don’t usually wear red shoes. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea. My red sneakers are about the only other red pair I own. Nope, I was wrong, I have a pair of red ankle boots that the District woman’s club bought for me, but I haven’t got to wear them very much.50 IS NOT OLD | PLANS SOMETIMES GET CANCELLEDThis is the way I transition into fall. I wear my normal outfits, and will just add a jacket or cardigan. As it gets colder, I will add ankle boots or knee high boots. Of course I will start adding the “fall” colors, but just a little at a time. Today’s dress is a tank dress, so wearing a denim jacket was super easy as a light transition piece. Both of these pieces are from Old Navy. My sister had been raving about her T-Shirt dress that she bought at Old Navy, in black of course, so I thought I would try one. Actually, I ended up trying two!!! You talk about comfortable, these are fabulous. They are a knit swing dress that has a silky feeling and is very flowy. They do not “cling” to you at all, so that is a BIG plus. I hate anything that shows my rolls and bumps.

Haha I have never had plans so far in advance before. I can’t wait to see who will be at next year’s event. I think I may take today off work anyway, I have already made all the necessary arrangements. I can just work on some things I have been wanting to do for the blog, and lay by the pool.

    Oh Tania what rotten luck, I know how much you’ve been looking forward to your trip ☹️ As your other lovely gurls have said, we must spare a thought for the poor people that have got to live through the hurricane. I haven’t had a denim jacket for years and I’ve been considering getting a new one but I’m not sure whether to go for a lighter denim or a dark one…

      Caroline, I have the shade of Tania’s denim jacket and found that it goes with a lot of my clothes. I like wearing darker denim jeans as the darker shade is more slimming on me. So if I wear a darker jacket it usually doesn’t match very well with my darker jeans. I’m not sure what the shade Tania is wearing but that shade goes very well with black, white, gray….actually many neutral colors….does that make sense????. I hope that helps you decide. ~Lisa~

        Makes perfect sense to me Lisa! I call this shade medium, I am not sure what it’s official name would be.

      I have always preferred a medium color. Dark colors look richer, the really faded light ones look worn out, so the medium tone is the one that calls out to me.

    Love the look you have put together for today! The red bead necklace and red sandals really make your outfit pop. I am a big fan of long necklaces like the red one you are wearing in the pic, because you can create so many styles with them. Hope you enjoy the long Labor Day weekend despite your trip being cancelled.

    So sorry about the cancellation and storm.What a stinky thing to have happen. ? I know how disappointing it must be. We live on the south east coast and only had to deal with rain and lightning. Praying not too much damage for people in the path.
    Now to your outfit – how cute and fun looking. And of best of all it looks comfy. Hope your day is blessed and enjoy the time off.

    So sorry Tania! You should have driven west of Panama City to our beautiful Pensacola. Our beach is one of the most beautiful in the world. I also love this swing dress from Old Navy. It is so comfy and as you said doesn’t cling to you. Enjoy your long weekend and Thank you for your wonderful blog. Love the red shoes!

    I was so sorry to hear your event was cancelled! Such a heartbreak. Years ago, I was all set to finally get to see my heartthrob, Bobby Sherman, nearby. Packed up, booked a hotel and went off with my husband and friends, only to be turned away from the event gate. Someone had embezzled the funds and it was suddenly cancelled. Thinking your heart took a turn down like mine did that day. Luckily, I had another chance to meet him in 2000. You will get to see them in concert another time, for sure.

    Do something extra fun at home this long weekend!

    Great outfit, as always.

    And I do pray that Hurricane Hermine either changes course or does very little damage.

    I loved red so yes, I wear red shoes! 🙂 Seems my wardrobe consists of black, black & white, red and denim. I’ve not heard of this jewelry line. Will have to check it out. One of my favorite scriptures is Jeremiah 29:11.

    Enjoy your weekend! Be safe and have fun ~ 🙂

    Good grief Charlie Brown, I’m so sorry the Gulf Coast Jam was cancelled! I can feel the disappointment coming through my computer screen. I read somewhere this morning that 100,000 people in Florida are without power, so I am definitely feeling bad for them too. I’ve been in hurricanes before and there’s nothing remotely amusing about them! On a lighter note, I’m excited to see what you will have prepared for us gurls this coming fall with your outfits and new Plunder jewelry!

    So sorry to hear our trip was cancelled due to the hurricane in FL. But I loved your outfit and jewelry!! As you do upcoming posts about transitioning to fall (and other seasons), I would like to see you give advice about pairing colors and textures together. I am a “matchy, matchy” girl, but I know there are people that use the color wheel to pair outfits together, but I’ve never really heard or been taught how you do that. I would love to mix and match colors that you might not think to pair together. Looking forward to your fall outfits….my favorite season of the year! Happy Weekend! 🙂

    speaking of Plunder! I spent almost an hour today browsing their site, I created an account and picked several items to put in my cart, all while
    shopping with you!!! so far so good, but then I couldn’t find any way to get to a shopping cart link on their site to edit any of my items or to check out! man am I just dumb or has anyone else had a problem with their website? I got so frustrated I finally just closed it out! I’m a seasoned online shopper and that’s a first for me, not being able to find your shopping cart LOL!! and I was in the buying mood dangit

    Sorry your trip was cancelled. Just be thankful you had not made the entire trip to Florida before it was cancelled. Last fall our family went to the OBX for the first time. A family vacation. Needless to say we spent most of the week watching the weather channel…a hurricane came through. We had one good day weather wise. Left one day early. Water poured in to the rented beach front home through the slider door and bathroom window.

Don’t think I’d look as cute as you though.

  38. DAGNABIT knew how much you were looking forward to it. I love Lyle Lovett – one year I bought tickets to go to his concert – I was so excited. Got to the concert and realized it was the night before – I just broke down in tears (the poor man at the ticket booth came out to hug me) 2 years later I finally got to a Lyle Lovett concert and it was AMAZING. So maybe next year for you it will even be better.
