50 IS NOT OLD | STYLING A MONOCHROMATIC LOOK IN TURQUOISE BLUE | FASHION OVER 40The sky here in Georgia is almost as blue as the color of my outfit. Sky blue is one of my favorite colors, and the fact that it brings out the blue in my eyes might be the reason. Lol! So, my sister and I are taking a few days to visit, go shopping, and of course, work. We have both found that once we hit our 50’s, we have become workaholics. We sit outside on her screened in porch in the morning and discuss the day. She is my sounding board, and I love having her in my corner.
50 IS NOT OLD | STYLING A MONOCHROMATIC LOOK IN TURQUOISE BLUE | FASHION OVER 40Did you notice that I changed my logo on the blog? I am working on updating and freshening up the look of the blog, and that is a long, tedious process. You have to have someone design a logo, pick out colors and fonts, and have it represent your style. I like bold colors, but those don’t work well for blog headers and logos, so I had to learn to compromise. To finally get to the stage where I have a design that I like has taken over a month. It was similar to building a house and having to pick out all of the paint colors and then having to pick out all the furnishings to coordinate. It is hard on the designer also, because she would send a design, and then I would want to change the colors in it five more times. More times than not, I would end up going with the original design. Lol! I am sure that she was ready to scream. Hahaha!
50 IS NOT OLD | STYLING A MONOCHROMATIC LOOK IN TURQUOISE BLUE | FASHION OVER 40My bright turquoise v-neck tee is an old one that I bought a couple of years ago. When I find a style that I like in a “staple” item, then I will buy multiple colors. I liked the v-neck and the short cap sleeves, so I bought this top in white, navy, orchid, and this turquoise color. I think they came from Old Navy or Cato Fashions, but I can’t remember which one. Because I buy colors that I like, I find that I usually have something in my closet that will match them once I get home.

50 IS NOT OLD | STYLING A MONOCHROMATIC LOOK IN TURQUOISE BLUE | FASHION OVER 40I have worn this set before, and I still love the entire thing. The red beads of the necklace, make it pop against the bright blue of the top. The Cole necklace also has gold disc dangles and a pendant that has a marbled turquoise center which is surrounded by crystals and a leopard print. The matching Garner earrings feature the same pendant, but there is no red on them. The brown leather “love” magnetic bracelet is called the Kellyjean, and the multi-colored elastic pull on bracelet with the leaf dangle is a part of the Randee set.
50 IS NOT OLD | STYLING A MONOCHROMATIC LOOK IN TURQUOISE BLUE | FASHION OVER 40My shorts today are by Crown & Ivy. I love that brand, and I try to buy a couple of pieces from them each year. This year, I decided to stock up on several pairs of shorts. They have all different lengths to choose from, but mine is the 5″ inseam version. I loved the bright color and design of the Caroline classic short, and I am glad that they fit me when they arrived. I ordered my usual size 10, and they fit perfectly. These shorts are on sale, so click here for the link.
The wind has put an end to my pretty burgundy vase with my oversized gorgeous sunflowers. I need to find me another (much heavier) option for my sunflowers.

What the sun does to your skin, Rodan + Fields undoes. The sun’s rays make us feel good in the short term, but here’s the effect in adulthood of just a little unprotected UV exposure every day through the years.

  • Pre-mature fine lines wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Discolored areas of the skin known as mottled pigmentation
  • Sallowness — a yellow discoloration of the skin
  • Telangiectasias – the dilation of small blood vessels under the skin
  • Elastosis –the destruction of the elastic and collagen tissue (causing lines, wrinkles and sagging skin)

If your skincare does not create transformation in 30 days, like the one in this photo (tight pores, even skin tone, glowing, not sallow skin, reduction of lines and dark circles) maybe it’s time to consider skin care with the medicinals to make a clear difference. Try Rodan + Fields’ REVERSE for Sun Damage or REDEFINE for aging skin. Both come with a 60-day money back guarantee, and as a PC you will enjoy free shipping and a nice discount.

      That is probably something that I stress over and most people won’t even notice.

      Thanks, Susanne. I was worried because I am not all that feminine.

  1. I love turquoise in the summer. It is so flattering! I never think to wear it the cold winter climate though. I also buy colours I love and know I’ll wear so there is almost always something that coordinates wirh other pieces in my wardrobe..

  2. Great color on you! Put sand or rocks in the bottom of the vase to weigh it down and the wind won’t blow it over.

    • Tania Reply

      I know that I should have done that, Michelle. Lesson learned.

  3. LOVE your new logo ( I noticed immediately) and love your outfit (my favorite color). They definitely bring out the blue in your eyes ( I also have blue eyes). So sorry your vase blew over and broke. Thought the red was so pretty with the yellow sunflowers. Made them ‘pop’ and it really showed off your outfits! Have fun visiting your sister.

      Sondra, thanks for noticing. Blue does look good on us blue-eyed girls!

  4. Love the new logo — I noticed it right away and think it’s a big improvement!

    Don’t give up on your vase — try Gorilla glue, it really is a miracle worker. And then maybe add some weight to the bottom of your vase — fishing weights, or something small and heavy like that. It’s worth a shot to save something that you love and that’s worked so well for you.

    Let us know if it works out!

      Lola, I thought about gluing it back together, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it to stay together long enough for it to stick. It is so heavy, that I thought it would fall over. Oh well, I guess it is worth a try.

      Thanks, Marilyn. I am a terrible procrastinator, so it takes me a while to make change.

    love the sunflowers. and love the new look of the header for your blog. I am a graphic designer so i know EXACTLY what you are talking about. and don’t stress, changes and edits are all part of the process, we expect it. our goal is to make you happy – as long as you are pleasant which i have no doubt you are.

    • Tania Reply

      Lesli, I didn’t know that you were a graphic designer. You should have told me that my blog needed help. Lol!

    I noticed the new logo right away and really like it! This blue color really pops and looks great on you. Thanks for your blog – I have really enjoyed it since I signed up.

    I noticed the logo right away! The colors are telling you something…it’s a sign. Those ARE your colors. You always pop when wearing the colors in your logo and what you have on today is another winner. Your cool toned summer looks are so pretty! I love your blog and that you shop smart and with an eye to price. Your stories are cute, too!

    • Tania Reply

      Thanks, Roxanne. I hadn’t thought about those colors being “my” colors. I’ll have to check that out.

    I noticed the redesign yesterday. I was doubting my memory so I went to last weeks postings to see when it started but it changes those too! I really like the more feminine style!!

    • Tania Reply

      I didn’t realize that it updated all of the older posts too. Thanks for letting me know.

  9. LOL – you need to prop it up until it dries!! And you can use painters tape to hold the pieces together – it will take a while to set, but this stuff is the BEST. I use it for everything!

  10. Cathy justice Reply

    Love your new logo! Turquoise is one of my favorite colors. I thought I was the only one to buy multiple colors of the same top of bottom. I wear mostly solids so it makes it easier.

  11. Love…love…love the new header on your web page! The colors are gorgeous.

I would love to hear from YOU!
