A group of 40-something bloggers got together to participate in a fun group style challenge to celebrate being forty, fun, and fabulous! What better theme to chose than color of the year, marsala, combined with the always classic wardrobe staple, denim. (Thanks, Sheela, for organizing and inviting me!)
Here’s my look …
The funny thing was when I got the email about this cool challenge, I had just posted this marsala and denim outfit. I decided I wanted to try something creative and different this time around! After all, middle age is a time in our lives when we feel confident enough to take risks, right? So here’s a dress, styled as a vest.
And it’s not the first time that I’ve played around styling this dress!
What do you think? A little wild, sure, but fun ….
My outfit details:
Lucky Brand jacket and necklace
Royalty for Me skinny pants
Madden Girl shoes
The Loft tank
Vintage Blue dress (wearing as a vest)
Let’s see what the rest of the fab 40 bunch came up with …

We’ve had amazing weather lately in San Jose. I feel a little guilty enjoying it so much, because first of all, a lot of my blogging buddies and readers are still buried in snow, and second of all, California desperately needs rain. But since I have no control over either situation, I’m just gonna enjoy the sunny 80 degree days!
And one way I’m enjoying the weather is by wearing bright pretty patterns for spring!
Just part of the fun day the hubby and I spent in Monterey to celebrate our wedding anniversary! I won’t bore you too much, but here’s one cute pic of us enjoying hot chocolate, cinnamon rolls, and a sunrise over the ocean.
I love this man!
Life is good!
And the weekend is just around the corner and you know what that means … FUN FASHION FRIDAY! Right here starting Friday Eve every week! Come by and link up any fashion, beauty, outfit or shopping post! Can’t wait to see what you all have to share with us this week!
Fashion Should Be Fun is holding it’s first giveaway! … a $50 gift card (or e-card, your choice) to Zappos, a fab place to shop online for shoes and clothing!
And I’m a sucker for a theme, so this is the Spring Break Zappos Giveaway! I know most of us are too old for a traditional spring break, but that feeling of wanting to get away and enjoy those first warm days at the beach never goes out of style! I had fun picking out spring-break-inspired items from the Zappos site, all $50 and under, to give you ideas how to spend your winnings! (Of course you can buy whatever the heck you want with it!)
