I just got back from vacation, and I leave again tomorrow. Joe is rolling his eyes at me because that means he has to take care of the dog and cat. What I mean be take care of is, they have to still be alive when I get back home on Sunday. The cat has an automatic litter box that is a lifesaver, and Lucy is extremely easy since all he has to do is feed her a tiny bit in the morning and evening, and take her outside to potty 2 or 3 times a day.

We’ve bought several automatic litter boxes over the years, but this Self Caring Litterbox is the best one we’ve bought so far. When my daughter first came back, we bought one that lasted about two weeks before it quit. Then, we ordered this one and it has worked like a charm, plus it is quiet. Thomas (the cat) is finicky about his litterbox, but this one is Thomas approved. Lol! Here is the non-clumping litter that we use for the automatic litterbox.

When you follow 50isnotold, you never know what you will learn about. Hahaha! Since today is Wednesday, that means it is time for Hit or Miss! Today I’m sharing two items that might be a problem for some of you, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts. I think of an outfit like Chicken and Dumplings. Some outfits might have items that I love, but I don’t love them together. That is how I am with Chicken and Dumplings. I like every ingredient, but I don’t like the outcome when they are all put together.

This Sanibel Eyelet Billow Sleeve Blouse seemed appropriate for me to wear since it has a beach print on it. This blouse is lightweight and 100% cotton, plus it has the billow sleeves which are popular this year. The top also has eyelet cutouts in a diamond pattern throughout the top for an added design feature.

Here is the length of the blouse from the back. I like that this is the type of blouse that can be dressed up or down, and it would look great with dress pants or a skirt. I’m wearing a size 1, and the fit is great.

The blouse is a classic navy and white print, and I added a Cotton Twill Classic Trench with it. I already have a shorter trench, but I think this longer version looks a little dressier. I’m 5’6″ tall, and I know several of you are already shaking your head that you can’t wear this because it is too long for your Petite frame. Wrong, wrong, wrong, because it also comes in Tall and Petite!!! I was so excited when I found that out because I hate leaving an entire segment of my audience out in the cold.

I rarely button any coat, and I usually tie the belt in the back to keep the coat open. When I had a coat on the blog previously, someone asked for me to show it buttoned, so here is that look for you. I’m wearing a medium, and I still have plenty of room if I wanted to wear a sweater under it.

Here is the look from the back, and as you can see, this is how I tie the belt in the back. I would say that this trench is a light to medium weight. It isn’t heavy, but it isn’t lightweight either. The trench is also lined and feels like great quality to me.

Because I was adding the dark trench, I wanted a slightly lighter color for my jeans. I’m wearing a pair of medium wash Slim Straight Fit Jeans in a size 8 long. The trench is long, so I wanted full-length jeans. These jeans have a slight stretch to them, so they are comfortable and don’t cut into you. The jeans are of nice quality and won’t cost you a fortune. I know they are limited in sizes, so I’ll try to find some similar jeans for you.

I’ve owned these Franco Sarto Wedge Pumps for a while, and I love their neutral color that goes with everything. I’ve worn these with dresses, pants, crops, as well as jeans. They dress up all of my outfits and make my legs look longer. I love pointy toe shoes for that reason.

The last items are accessories, and they make the outfit. The jewelry I’m wearing is AVI Large Hoop Earrings, Adeline Link Necklace, 18 Kt. Gold Vermeil Cross Necklace, and a David Yurman Cable Loop Bracelet. I’m carrying a Coach Lori Pebble Leather Shoulder Bag in Chalk. This is also a great neutral that can be worn with everything. There are a few less expensive Coach bags on the Coach Outlet, and I’ll link to some similar ones below. Just click on the photo to go to the item.
