Here we are again with another installment of The Fab 40's, this months theme was chosen by Sheela of Sheela Writes. Bomber Jackets, are totally on trend right now and I know they will be hot for fall and winter. This isn't my 1st go around with bomber jackets, the trend was very popular in my high school days. Yup, the look was so cool in the 90's. Wearing a bomber jacket took me back to 1992 listening to The Smiths on my brothers boom box, while watching 90210 wondering if Brenda & Dylan would break up! Ah the 90's were so awesome, so many great things happened and so many great fashion trends were worn. Honestly didn't really intended to have my outfit be a 90's inspired look, but once I put on the bomber jacket my 17 year old self appeared. OK, actually the 17 year cool version of who I wish I had been appeared. I would have probably not worn this outfit when I was a teen, mostly because cool and trendy clothing in plus size didn't exist in the early 90's. It was nearly impossible to find fashionable and trendy clothing for any one over a size 12. The struggle was real to be a chubby teen girl in the 90's!

When it comes to fashion, why does it seem like "casual" and "comfortable" are dirty words? Growing up reading fashion magazine you rarely saw any casual looks in those glossy pages. No one ever looked comfortable wearing those high end designer clothing. Even watching fashion makeover shows like "What Not To Wear" dressing casual was often frowned upon. I mean casual and comfortable doesn't mean sloppy or boring, well at least not to me! I live in casual comfortable clothing, its what best suits my lifestyle. I don't claim to be the most stylish or fashionable, but I do try to find ways of making my casual looks fun and interesting. Let me share some ways to take your casual comfy looks from boring to banging!

Since I am back to work now, there is no outfits to share this week. I know, I know what a bad blogger. This week has been super busy, and with the heat by the time I get home theres no time or energy left in me to take outfit pictures. Hey life happens and I am sure many of you can relate. I have been driving all over LA County this week for work, and traffic has been killer. Most schools are starting again and I bet that's causing the major traffic. Did I mention the heat, yeah its been quite hot in LA. We also have a big huge fire causing havoc, so yeah with all that going on no cute outfit this week. I didn't want to miss yet another #UntamedStyle Linkup, so instead I am sharing some pictures from my day at the Orange County Fair. We had a great time and even enjoyed a concert. Keep reading for all the fun details.

My summer is officially over! Ugh, I know summer isn't technically over for a few more weeks, but I am back to work. I work in education and its time to get back to school, that's why my summer is over. I won't complain or cry, because it was a good summer and I have many great memories. This summer I was able to visit a few new (to me) places and luckily most were at the beach. Sometimes I can't believe some places I have never visited in my own state. Like Laguna Beach, yeah like the MTV show...lol I moved to Orange County a few years ago and slowly I have been discovering lots of spots I have never been too. One of them is Laguna Beach, not sure why I never made it there. Laguna Beach is actually not too far from me, but its one of those places that is a bit difficult to get to. Lucky for me, the man discovered a free bus that takes you into Laguna Beach every weekend during the summer. Who doesn't love free stuff! The service is offered by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) you park in a lot and they come pick you up and take you into Laguna Beach!

Being a bargain shopper I am always look for the best deal on everything. Including beauty services, such has manicures, hair cuts and spa treatments. Who doesn't like to get pampered and get beautified. These are the type of services most women will go with out when their budget is tight and funds are low. However sometimes you just need to treat yourself and have some "me" time. This is when I look to websites like Groupon, you can find tons of deals on Health, Beauty and Wellness. You can get the same services for half the price on almost any beauty or wellness treatment.
