Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing an eyelet flutter sleeve top with a navy skort with zippers and a pair of Sperry no-tie sneakers

Do you ever feel like mixing it up sometimes? I love experimenting with my clothing, makeup, and as you can tell, this morning I decided to play with my hair. It doesn’t seem to matter how I cut my hair, I will always end up styling it the same way. So, my style still looks the same even though the length has changed.

This morning when I got ready to style my hair, I thought, “how would my hair look straight?” I’ve seen other women wear their hair straight as a stick, so I decided to give it a try. I figured that Joe would have some smart remark to make, but he never made a peep. That makes me wonder even more since he is never silent about anything that I wear or do with my makeup and hair. I doubt if it was “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all” because his momma never taught him that rule. Lol! I was waiting on, “did you stick your finger in the light socket?” or maybe, “hey, witchy-poo, where is your broom?” He must have been having an off day, so I guess that it is back to my tried and true style tomorrow. Lol!

I love this feminine eyelet flutter sleeve from Ann Taylor. It is adorable and looks so cute with jeans as well as this skort. It is perfect for summer since it is 100% cotton and sleeveless. The top is a super soft knit, and machine washable. Even though it is a high neckline, I still find the top very flattering. I am wearing a large in the top because some of Ann Taylor’s tops fit me tight. I love the fit of this one, and it is the perfect size for me.

To elongate my neck since the top has a high neckline, I wore a long bold necklace with a navy tassel. The necklace has blue stones and engraved silvertone beads and this will draw the eye downward to visually elongate your frame and make you appear taller. The wide cobalt bracelet that I am wearing creates a statement. It looks like Lapis since it has streaks of gold in the cobalt color. It is stretchy, so it is easy to put on and take off. The earrings are no longer available, so I’ll link to some others that would be gorgeous with this outfit.

Look how cute this skort is! I love the neutral navy color since you will be able to wear it with almost anything. But, the front pockets and the silver zippers are what give the skort its unique style. I have become quite a fan of skorts this summer, and I think you will be too if you give them a try. They are cool in the summer, but you don’t have to worry about your rear showing when you sit down. Of course, you should be sitting with your legs closed anyway, but you get my drift. Lol! The website shows the zipper straight up and down, but mine is across the pocket. So, I have no idea what your will look like, but this is the skirt that I ordered. I am wearing a size 1 and it fits great. Here is the link.

You know that I love my Sperry no-tie sneakers. I love wearing them with jeans, shorts, and dresses and skirts. They are a fashion sneaker, so you can wear them with anything that you want. I did have to size down in these shoes and order an 81/2 instead of my normal 9. You will get a ton of wear from these sneakers since this classic shoe will not go out of style.

I was looking back at some of my earlier blog posts when I first started. Gracious, how did my blog ever survive? Lol! Plus, when I looked at the photos, I understood why I ordered RF in the first place. I looked like a zombie with dull skin, hooded eyes, and no lashes to speak of. See for yourself.


I am a HUGE believer in starting with a regimen. I started with Reverse which addresses sun damage and dullness, and then soon incorporated Redefine which is the anti-aging regimen. It addresses fine lines and wrinkles and loss of firmness. I want to help everyone get started with the regimen they need, so this will be today’s special.

Place an order as my Preferred Customer for a Regimen, and get your choice of a free Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream or the Active Hydration Body Replenish as a gift from me. To see which regimen you need, take the solutions tool (2 minutes) or schedule a personal consultation with me (30 minutes because I love to talk). Here is the link to the Solutions Tool.

    I love your hair and think you should at least try it a couple times a week and maybe you’ll really get to liking it plus it being much easier not to have to fix it every day. I have a jean skort and it is so comfortable but yet you can dress it up or down. I’m hoping to pick up another one at the end of the season.

    Hi Tania- in your before and after photos, there is a significant change in your hooded eyelids! Which product did you apply to your lids?

      I use the Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream. You apply it to the orbital bone, and as it warms it will travel around. It is amazing how my eyes have opened up.

    Does the skort run small? The reviews seem to be mixed. I was wondering if the Zenergy brand was sized differently that the pant sizes. It looks so cute and I love the tonga navy color.
