50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT TO WEAR ON A VALENTINE'S DAY DATE | FASHION OVER 40Happy Friday!!! It’s that time of the week where we are all smiling and in a great mood. I know that I am feeling fantastic and I can’t wait to introduce you to a beautiful lady who is joining me for Friday with Friends. Deborah Boland is a superstar in the blogging world and I am sure that many of you have heard of her or seen her blog already. She started blogging in 2006 when she got frustrated when she realized how hard it was to dress when you are over 40. That is when she declared right then that, “Life is too short to be frumpy!” Oh my goodness, we might be sisters separated at birth. Lol! She is blonde, and I am blonde. She says that everyone should be Classy and Fabulous, and I say that my style is Classy with a little bit of trashy. Lol! Okay, maybe not sisters, but distant cousins. Anyway, she is a very talented blogger with lots of useful information that I know all of you will love. 50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT TO WEAR ON A VALENTINE'S DAY DATE | FASHION OVER 40Yesterday, I had an honor that had me on cloud nine all day long. I was featured in the “Blogger Spotlight” by Rank & Style website, which is a huge honor. Rank & Style is a web and mobile platform that revolutionizes – and simplifies – the online shopping process via unbiased, scientifically cultivated Top Ten lists of the best fashion, beauty and lifestyle products. I was thrilled at seeing my name in the “spotlight” and it was somewhat surreal. When I started my blog back in September 2015, I never told anyone other than my sister. I was afraid of what people would think and what they would say. I was so embarrassed the first time that someone shared my blog on social media and wanted to hide because I was afraid of what the reaction would be. I am thrilled that my blog has become something more than a lookbook for me, and it is all because of those of you who are reading and following. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! ❤️50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT TO WEAR ON A VALENTINE'S DAY DATE | FASHION OVER 40“What would you suggest for a nice Valentine’s Day date” was a question that I got earlier last month. I ordered this outfit with Valentines in mind. I love looking pretty, stylish, and a tad bit sexy, but I don’t want to look….umm, I am trying to find a nice way of saying like a tart. (I don’t think that I succeeded) I can’t believe how much I love this ballet wrap top by 1901. You probably know that I am not curvy and that I have a pretty straight build. That is a nice way to say that my middle is as wide and my top and bottom. Lol! I normally try to steer clear of anything that draws attention to my waistline, however, this wrap top is so flattering that I am breaking my own rule.  I wore a faux wrap earlier this week (see here) but this is a true wrap, and the tie goes around your back to come together and tie in the front. The deep V neckline is very flattering. It is really deep and I do have mine pinned to make sure that it stayed closed. However, wearing a cute lace camisole under it would fix the issue if this is too low for you. I am wearing a medium and this fits true to size. Go here to find the link. 50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT TO WEAR ON A VALENTINE'S DAY DATE | FASHION OVER 40How many times have you seen me wear the Jewel earrings? I can’t even begin to count the number of times because it has been so many. I do love this pair because they are perfect for wearing with something dressy or casual also. It is hard to find something that can serve both purposes. The large silver pearl is surrounded by crystals for a striking look. The Rosemary necklace is composed of tiny pearls that create a floral design. They are strung on larger pearls and the overall look is very elegant. I finished off the look with a trio of crystal bracelets because you can never have too much bling! 50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT TO WEAR ON A VALENTINE'S DAY DATE | FASHION OVER 40I am telling you gurls, you need to have a pair of red pumps in your closet. These babies, paired with some red lipstick, will take your sexy level up by 100%. My pumps are by Michael Kors and I bought them back a few months ago when I caught them on sale. I have been so happy with this purchase and I know that you will be happy with yours also. I even think these will be fantastic to wear this summer with a pair of black skinny jeans and a white t-shirt. Wow! That is on my list to style for the Summer.

50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT TO WEAR ON A VALENTINE'S DAY DATE | FASHION OVER 40This skirt hits at just the right spot on the knee to be super flattering and also conservative. The snug body con fit ramps up the sexy level so there is no need to show any more leg than this. The skirt is made from a dense Ponte-knit fabric and it has a higher waistline. I ordered a medium but a large might have been more comfortable since this is made to fit tight. This comes in regular and plus sizes, and here is the link to order. 50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT TO WEAR ON A VALENTINE'S DAY DATE | FASHION OVER 40Don’t forget to stop by and say hello to Deborah today. Her blog is called Fabulous After 40 and I know you will enjoy it immensely.
