Today I will be boarding a jet plane and heading out on my journey to San Francisco. I mentioned that I was going on this trip on Monday, and a few of you were worried that I would be traveling alone. Thanks for your concern and for giving me tips about staying safe, I appreciate that. I am traveling with my Energizer Bunny Friend. We were both lucky enough to get this trip, and I am beyond grateful that we can travel together. The idea of traveling that far, staying that long, and having no one that I know is out there was terrifying for me. Whew, you should have seen my happy dance when it worked out that we would be going the same week. We were talking yesterday about the clothing that we would need while we were out there and she accused me of not having any “casual” clothing.50 IS NOT OLD | THE CITY BY THE BAY | FASHION OVER 40 What?!? She always laughs when we travel together that I can’t be comfy and cozy. I think that my idea of comfy and cozy is different than her idea. Her daughter called me on the phone with a list of instructions for the trip. She told me to get a pen and paper so that I didn’t forget what she wanted me to do, mind you; she is eleven going on twenty. First, I am supposed to pack leggings and an oversized sweatshirt from Joe. Second, I am supposed to watch the movie, “Escape From Alcatraz” with Clint Eastwood. Third, I am supposed to find an old backpack to carry all of my stuff in when we are out sightseeing. And finally, pack a pair of tennis shoes and a poncho or raincoat. She even made me off a checklist t make sure that I get it all completed. She might be disappointed since the only backpack that I own is one that I got as an incentive from Rodan + Fields, so I may have to take that. But, I am not wearing an oversized sweatshirt (Joe doesn’t even own one,) so she will have to get over her disappointment. Lol! 50 IS NOT OLD | THE CITY BY THE BAY | FASHION OVER 40How cute is this tee-shirt from Old Navy? My Energizer Bunny Friend decided to surprise me with this adorable shirt when it was confirmed that we would be going on this trip together. I love all the different aspects of San Francisco that are represented on this shirt like Karl the Fog and Coit Tower. We already have our tickets purchased for the day tour of Alcatraz (the night ones are not happening right now), and we have a LONG relaxing spa date already scheduled. After that, we intend to do as much as possible before having a nice dinner and getting packed to come home.50 IS NOT OLD | THE CITY BY THE BAY | FASHION OVER 40 I don’t wear a lot of jewelry when I wear a tee-shirt and jeans, but I usually try to wear earrings. I love earrings, and they bring the focus to your face. Earrings make your outfit complete. I know a lady who said that she never leaves home without her earrings. She was almost to where she was going and when she discovered that she didn’t put on her earrings so she turned around and drove all the way back home to get them. Yea, they are that important.

50 IS NOT OLD | THE CITY BY THE BAY | FASHION OVER 40See, I do have tennis shoes. These may not be “running” shoes, but I think that they still count. Lol! These are a really old pair that I bought right after I started this blog. These are Chuck Taylor knock-offs. Haha! They look like the real things, but I didn’t think that I would wear this style very much, so I bought this pair as a trial run. I did end up buying a pair of gray ones later, but I still don’t reach for either of them very often. I think they are cute and I love them on other people. They don’t look like me. Here is where you will find the real Chuck Taylors, but I am not sure where you will find the knock-offs. Lol!!!50 IS NOT OLD | THE CITY BY THE BAY | FASHION OVER 40 So, what do you think about the boyfriend jean style? I’ll be honest; it is not my favorite style. This pair fits me through the waist, but as you can see, they are so baggy everywhere else. I see this style on tiny little skinny girls, and they look adorable. I look like my pants don’t fit me good. Lol! Maybe I need to try another pair since this pair was one of the first styles when boyfriend jeans were released three years ago. Has the fit improved?

50 IS NOT OLD | THE CITY BY THE BAY | FASHION OVER 40Just in case you are wondering, I am NOT going to be wearing this when I tour the Rodan + Fields headquarters. Lol! I don’t know what I will be wearing just yet but I know it won’t be this. I have been amazed at the number of ladies who have joined my Facebook group where I talk about the business of Rodan + Fields. This is a great group and you can feel to look at all the material I have posted and you can ask questions if you would like. There is no pressure or obligations to join.
