The Fab 40’s in Marsala and Denim!

March 22, 2015

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!
