50 IS NOT OLD | T-SHIRT AND JEANS SERIES, PART FOURDoes everyone know about Murphy’s Law? It is an old adage that says, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” I bet many of you can relate to that message. There are days when it seems like nothing can go wrong and then there are those days when nothing can go right. In my case, it is more a matter of something going wrong while Joe and I both are out of town. 50 IS NOT OLD | T-SHIRT AND JEANS SERIES, PART FOURYou might have heard me mention my two little dogs before. Beckley is 12 years old and Lucy Lu was a stray but the veterinarians think she is around 2 or 3. Beckley is a full bloodied Yorkshire Terrier and Lucy Lu is a Yorkie mix. I have been struggling ever since we added Lucy to our home with managing their potty habits. Beckley was easy and I had it down to a science, however, Lucy has been a pure nightmare. My hope was that Beckley would teach Lucy how it was done but instead, Lucy has been a bad influence. I started noticing that Beckley was drinking a lot of water lately but Lucy was always drinking so I thought that was also a learned habit. On Tuesday though, Beckley started acting sick so we had my son, Joseph, take him to the vet’s office. Turns out that Beckley is now diabetic. Poor Beckley is now going to have two insulin shots a day and poor Joseph is going to have to be the shot giver until we get back in town. I am not sure which is unhappier, Beckley or Joseph.
50 IS NOT OLD | T-SHIRT AND JEANS SERIES, PART FOURI can’t believe this is day 4 of this t-shirt and jeans series. Most of you have let me know that you are enjoying this series because it has given you so many ideas that you will be able to incorporate into your own life. Dressing nicely does not have to be difficult or elaborate. There are times when a simple outfit can make the biggest impact and I think this outfit is one of those times. Once again, I am adding a classic item to the outfit, one that you will be able to get lots and lots of wear from. The denim, or blue-jean jacket, is a must-have for every wardrobe. This style jacket is relatively inexpensive and can be worn casually or dressy. One of the most fun looks is to take an obvious dressy look (think chiffon skirt) and add a denim jacket to the look. Try it, I think you will be surprised at the result. This denim jacket is from Old Navy and is the medium shade. 50 IS NOT OLD | T-SHIRT AND JEANS SERIES, PART FOURMy look is casual so I wanted to keep the jewelry casual also. The earrings are ball and chain links with added rhinestones for sparkle. These earrings are called Kasia.50 IS NOT OLD | T-SHIRT AND JEANS SERIES, PART FOURThe ball and chain link necklace is the Nellie. I really like this necklace for several reasons. I like the very ornate cross and the antiqued turquoise color. It also has attached a LARGE rhinestone, a feather, and a hang tag that says, “Have Mercy.” Do you remember my have mercy man photo? If not then you need to check that out, you can thank me later. Lol! I have a slew (bunch) of boho bracelets on. In fact, I have on every one that Plunder has because I LOVE these! I heard they might be retiring but I hope not, they are really my go-to bracelets when I am wearing something casual. The Queenie bracelet is a wrap bracelet that is metal plates and roses. You can also wear this bracelet as a choker but I have never done that yet. New party ALERT!!! I closed my last party and opened a new one. I bet you can guess what the name is….www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania5 EVERY purchase (for the rest of March) over $50.00 (excluding tax and shipping) will be getting a 15% off discount check from me.I50 IS NOT OLD | T-SHIRT AND JEANS SERIES, PART FOURThese Marc Fisher boots have become a favorite because of the dipped front design. That one little detail helps the look when you are wearing skinny jeans and dresses by elongating your legs. It keeps the look from being cut off.

    Poor Beckley, it hurts my heart to hear he’s not well. I hope he’s doing much better by now though. We have a little Yorkie too; his name is Reece and he turned 7 last October. He is something else for sure. We were never able to get him fully housebroken for some reason so feel your pain. Sometimes he’ll go to the door and will turn and look but he won’t make a sound; it’s a hello I’m standing here, don’t you see me, I need out look and he doesn’t wait long at all. Other times he won’t even go to the door. Thank goodness we found doggy “underwear” on the internet as they saved me sanity for those times when we’re not home. Our vet says it’s not unusual with the smaller breeds to have housebreaking issues. The other issue we have is that Reece is really susceptible to pancreatitis. We never gave him a lot of treats to begin with but the few we’d give him on occasion had to be cut out. Now maybe once a month or so he’ll get a greenie and that’s it.

    Have MERCY!!! John Stamos has ALWAYS been my….. well, have mercy. He has aged soooo well and I appreciate the TBT (throw back Thursday) link since I wasn’t following you when you posted your Have Mercy!! Made my day. I have only been following you a short while but I copy and paste your pics into a word doc and now I have a reference of all your outfits when I want to look at them. You may have something similar where you have all your pics to reference but I just love your style, your ability to put economical outfits together that anyone can afford, and your blog is so fun to read. Hope your fur babies are feeling better.

      ….and my favorite Jeans series is the pink and navy vest. I still have such a hard time wearing tennis shoes and feeling dressed up. I guess I need to embrace it because at 56 my feet certainly feel better in tennis shoes!

    Hi Tania, I am enjoying this series. Just wanted to let you know that when i try to reach your site from google. It says this site might be hacked!! When I click on it using my tablet I get a lot of popups and today with my laptop when I went to 50 is not old, it went right to a warning that I had a Zeus Virus and to call Microsoft etc. I didn’t call the number because I thought it might be a scam. I just did a virus scan on my own. Just wondered if anyone else had been having any problems with this. I am accessing this through the email link.

      Joyce, thanks so much for letting me know that this was an issue. I ran protection software and nothing showed up on my end so I contacted my hosting company and they couldn’t find anything either. But because I want to make absolutely sure that my site is secure I upgraded everything with the hosting company and my site will now be secure like banking and other companies, where you have to input your credit card information. Google has been contacted and they will take off the warning, although they said it might take several days (like molasses) to go through all their channels. Again, thanks for letting me know.

    Sorry about Beckley, I have a 9 year old pug name Ellie Mae that was diagnosed diabetic last year and she also gets 2 shots a day but she does great with them and every few months she has to spend a whole day at the vet which she hates so they can check her levels and make adjustments if needed.

  20. Cute look! I usually wear white denim jeans with a blue denim jacket or vice versa. Once I tried a white denim jacket with white jeans, it wasn’t a good look. Almost looked like a pants suit. Sorry about your dog. I have a 14 year old Lhasa Apso named Lucy. It isn’t easy dealing with a senior dog and little dogs live a long time.

    I’m so sorry about your poor Beckley! It is tough when our doggies are sick, especially if you’re not there to take care of her! Perhaps crate them when you’re gone so Lucy Lu will learn not to pee! I love this outfit & the blue D&B purse sets it off too!

    Another winner! Love the jean jacket with the cuffs turned back. I have learned so much from this series. It’s hard to pick a favorite!

    Sorry your sweet doggie isn’t feeling well. I bet having you home will make a big difference.

    Safe travels tomorrow!

    I have been hesitant to wear a jean jacket with blue jeans but the different colors look good. I hope your puppy baby feels better soon. Those fur babies and certainly family members.

    Looking cute as always. So sorry to hear about Beckley. Our little guy has been diabetic for 8 years now, with injections twice a day. I cook all his food so that I can control what goes in there. Keep an “eye on his eyes”…they are prone to developing blindness and glaucoma (could result in needing the eye removed…yuck). Our guy went blind and we shelled out a ton of money for laser surgery. The things we do!! He also has high blood pressure and is also on meds for that now. Just stay on top of it, be cautious in what you are feeding him (most treats are out) and be proactive. Good luck!
