A striped sweater, one of the biggest trends of 2020, jeans, and red shoes are what Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing. I should know better than to ask a question of you gurls. Lol! Yesterday, I did a Chico’s try-on session (here), and instead of uploading all photos, I uploaded all the videos. Usually, when I do these sessions, I’ll do a short video, and then flip to the camera and take a few photos. I upload the pictures to the blog, and then I upload the small videos to my Instagram stories. Yesterday, I decided to experiment.
A striped sweater from the Loft Outlet, one of the biggest trends of 2020, jeans, and red shoes are what Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing. In all honesty, this came about purely by accident. I filmed all of the videos last Sunday after Emersyn, and I got home from church. I ran by Walmart for my doormat (here), and I bought her that cute little unicorn outfit to put on once we got to the house. Emersyn was watching a movie, so I started doing my try-on session in my bedroom. Before I got the first video finished, Emersyn had already come into the room to join me.

She is a hoot and a mess all rolled into one big ball of cuteness. But, I got so involved in talking to her that I forgot to take the photos. I didn’t even realize that I had only done videos until it came time to do the blog post. So, I decided to adapt and overcome like a good soldier. I loved the feedback from everyone, and I realized that you can’t make everyone completely happy. But, going forward, I think that I will still do the photos (if I can remember to take them) and then link to one long video of all of the outfits together. You can choose the method that you like best. Come to think of it; maybe you can make everyone happy after all. Haha!
A striped sweater from the Loft Outlet is what Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing. How do you like this striped sweater for the Loft Outlet? According to all of the websites that are predicting trends for 2020, it looks like stripes are at the top of the list. This striped sweater is so cute, and I think that it looks very expensive…but it’s not. The weave of the sweater is very tight, and it feels very substantial and high quality. You might not be a “red” person, but this sweater gives you a lot of other colors to be the focus. You have lots of colors in this sweater, including white, navy, red, burgundy, and hot pink. I like the buttons at the hem of the sleeve, and I think details like that are what makes the sweater look expensive. I am wearing a medium in the sweater, and I think that it fits me perfectly. If you want to look modern and like someone who pays attention to the biggest trends, then check out the sweater. Here is the link to this sweater.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a striped sweater and gold jewelry. The gold necklace that I am wearing is an old one that I bought from Plunder Design. It is no longer on the website, and they are having a huge sale right now, getting rid of all the retiring items to make room for new styles coming. Just go here and click on the different sale categories.

I have on a pair of Kendra Scott earrings that were a free item. They had a sale a couple of weeks ago that said if you buy “this” amount, then you got a pair of free earrings. I love the geometric style, and I found a couple of other earrings that had a similar design that I’ll link to below. The cuff bracelet is one that I am loving. It is called the Fallyn, and I love the entwined design. I put this on, and then I squeeze it tight on my wrist to make sure that it doesn’t fall off. It is way too pretty to lose. Here is the link to the cuff. And I also added my Maggie filigree bangle to the look. I love wearing more than one bracelet at a time. Here is the link to the Maggie Bangle.

A striped sweater, one of the biggest trends of 2020, bootcut jeans, and red shoes are what Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing. The pretty red shoes that I am wearing today are from the Loft Outlet. These have bows across the top and are mules; I didn’t get a good photo of them by themselves. They run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9, which seems to fit great. I am still trying to adapt to mules, but they are still hard for me to get used to. My DIL and my SIL both love wearing mules, so I am going to keep wearing them. Let me hear your thoughts. Do you love mules, or do you have trouble walking in them like me? Here is the link to the bow mules, and I’ll put a photo below so that you can see them better. Plus, I added a couple of other similar ones, but without a bow. I know that some would rather not have a bow on their shoe.

A striped sweater, bootcut jeans, and red shoes are what Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing. You have seen these bootcut jeans on me multiple times. They are the Natalie jeans from Kut From the Kloth, and I am wearing my usual size 10 in them. The website says that they run large and you should size down, but I ordered my usual size, and I think that they fit great.

    I loved the video Chicos try-on yesterday because it was great to hear your voice. However, it did take a lot longer than going through the pictures. That funnel neck sweater was gorgeous on you!

      Laura, I was concerned about the length and also about the actual audio since some people might like to read at work, on lunch, with others around, etc.

  2. Just caught up with yesterday’s blog. Loved the personal touch that you get with the videos. Lovely to hear your voice and Emersyn’s! What a bright girl! Think the idea of doing photos and then a long video for the try on sessions is great especially for those off us who don’t have Instagram. Loved today’s classy look.

      Thanks, Moya. I am crossing my fingers that I can make that work.

  3. Hi Tania, I don’t normally love stripes but that sweater is super cute and flattering on you! and those shoes!! LOVE

      I don’t wear a lot of stripes either, but I loved this sweater.

  4. I guess that I’ve been “in style” for several years now. Stripes have been my go-to look for the past 4-5 years! (In fact, I’m trying an animal print today because I felt that I have been wearing too many stripes!) At least I’m prepared for this season. 😉

      That is fabulous. You are a trendsetter!!! It is funny that you are in animal print because you wear too many stripes because I am in stripes because I thought that I was wearing too much animal print. Lol!

  5. I know mules are the trend but I can’t jump on the bandwagon. Mules slip with me when I walk…I constantly feel like I am off balance. Not a good feeling at my age. I want, and need, stability when walking, especially for long periods of time. P.s. I enjoyed the videos yesterday but I will read your posts no matter the way you present them.

      Mules are hard for me to keep on my feet also. You have to use your toes to grip the shoes to keep them from flying across the room. Lol!

  6. Such a cute outfit!! It is beautiful on you! Thank you for all your great tips for being stylish ❤️

      I am glad that you like the outfit, Tracey. Thanks so much for commenting!

  7. Great outfit. Love the red. I’m still not sure about horizontal stripes on me……but they sure look good on your. And I love your jeans too. I am not a fan of mules either. Just hard to walk in them. And finally, thanks for doing photos…so much easier to get through and follow. Have a great weekend Tania!

  8. I have never been able to wear mules. My feet are slightly narrow, size 6 1/2, and I cannot keep mules on my feet. If they are cut up very high on the foot, I may.be able to wear them.

  9. I must say red is looking like your color. That striped top looks so good on you. The whole outfit is perfect for you. Your hair looks great too. I just love it when I can find an entire outfit that really compliments me. When that happens I take a picture so I can remember the outfit:) Have a great week:)

    I love your compromise with a blend of both videos and pictures! Sometimes we (myself included) dont realize how much work and effort you put into your blog to both educate and entertain your readers. I’m sending you a BIG thank you today!! Love your outfit too

    The sweater colors looks great on you, I am not a huge fan of stripes but this might change my mind. Love that you added the red shoes. I can’t really do the mules because i need some kind of arch support.
    I also think you look thinner. so great outfit.
    Have a great weekend.

  12. I love today’s outfit. It looks great on you. I love miles but it took me awhile to adapt to them. Have a great weekend.

  13. I love the striped sweater! Cute outfit! I wish I could still wear heels… they dress up the outfit nicely.. the red mules you showed would work , though!
    I’ll say it again! I loved the videos yesterday . They were very calming to watch and listen to. 🥰❤️😁

  14. Hello Tania, I just started to follow you and love your look and style! You are awesome! How do I find and watch your video that you are talking about?

  15. I couldn’t get the videos to run properly. Like the photos better

    Hi, so what is the biggest trend for 2020? Stripes? Red shoes? Bootcut? I was hoping that you would tell me that! Thanks

I would love to hear from YOU!
