Joining The Fab 40's Bloggers

Today is my first post with Fab 40's Bloggers, I was invited to join an amazing group of fabulously fashionable bloggers who are 40+. Yes I am over 40 yrs old, in case you didn't know. Some people think I am younger and that is great, but I have never been one to deny my age. Age really is just a number given for the years of life you have lived. Your age doesn't tell the story of the kind of life you have lived. Being 40 no longer equates with being old, heck I don't even think 50, 60 or 70 is old. Age is all about perspective, how you feel and how you live. I sure as heck don't feel 40, act 40 or some may say even look 40 (what ever that may be).  The Fab 40's group is 7 bloggers who love fashion and are here to show that style is ageless. Style comes in all ages as well as all sizes!

Every month Fab 40's will showcase a style theme, this month is all white. I joined in a bit last minute, and therefore may be cheating a bit with my outfit. I literally do not own any all white clothing. This was truly a challenge for me, and did the best I could.  I actually just bought this white shirt a few days prior to joining the group. I realized there was NO white in my wardrobe, with the exception of a few tees. Good thing I had at least a basic white button shirt for this months challenge. White hasn't been one of my favorite colors, because honestly I am a bit messy and prone to getting stains. Wearing all white is just attracting the dirt and stains to find me. I know white is a popular color to wear in the summer and hotter months, because it will keep you cool. I still wear black and dark colors in the summer, hot or not!

I did mange to dig out a pair of lighter color denim shorts with some white stripes to wear with this white shirt. It's not often I wear shorts either, so this theme was definitely a challenge for me. Usually I am not too comfortable showing off my legs, they are always too pale and not in the best shape. This theme was challenging for me. It made me push my self a bit to not be so critical on my self about my legs. Most women are harsh on themselves when it comes their appearance. If the worse thing I say about my legs is they are pale and a bit jiggly so be it. My legs allow me to walk every day and get me places I've never been. Turning 40 has taught to be kinder to my self about my appearance, because ultimately this who I am and what I look like

I paired the outfit with my favorite pair of slip on Vans, from the Eley Kashimoto collaboration. I've been wearing Vans since I was in elementary school. Every year my parents would take us to the Vans store and let us pick out a pair for school. Being a born and raised California girl, Vans are a must have in my wardrobe. Next month I will be more prepared and hopefully bring you a better outfit. Look out for the Fab 40's post on a monthly basis, the last Monday of each month. I am truly honored and excited to be a part of this group, hope you enjoy these post as well.

Hope you enjoyed this new post and make sure you visit all the Fab 40's bloggers for details on their outfits, as well as to show them some love. 

Are you a fan of all white for summer? 

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of these outfits.


  1. What a cute outfit idea! I love an all white outfit, but don't wear it often because when I do, I spill something on me during the first five minutes. LOL

    Still can't believe your 40. I've seen your face close-up on Snapchat and would have sworn you were in your late 20's/early 30's.

    1. Thanks Leslie, I think it's the chubby cheeks that keep me looking younger! πŸ˜† Also must be good genes, my mom has good skin!!

  2. I think it's good to get you out of your comfort zone with white items Veronica!! I only say that because this blogging thing has done that for me, not as much with color, but different styles & pieces! And it's fun...and challenging....and good for some variety, right?
    This is truly a classic look---a white shirt works for everyone!

    1. Thanks Jodie, it was a fun challenge. Although wearing white makes nervous...I'm glad I did it!

  3. Veronica, welcome to The Fab 40's! So glad to have you on board and thanks for being such a sport and deciding to participate in this month's theme at the last minute. I really like how you styled your classic white shirt with the denim shorts and Vans! Looking forward to finding out what next month's theme will be. :)

    1. Thanks J, I am excited to collab with all you fabulous ladies. :)

  4. Hi Veronica, I'm glad I found you via the Fab 40s! I like your outfit, and I'm glad the theme got you out of your comfort zone! :-) White shirts are so versatile and look great with so many outfits. But I don't wear them often enough since I hate ironing... ;-)

    It is GREAT to have you on board (I am super-excited to see what you come up with next month)
    We make a diverse international team... with something for everyone.
    Thank you for being a part of it.

  6. Oh yes I know what it mean to go out of a comfort zone. A challenge to wear shorts . You did it so well. :) You look amazing.

  9. I think there is no better outfit for summer than denim shorts and a lightweight white top. And you look fabulous! Also, I really thought you were in your early 30's, so good for you! Rocking the 40's AND the white top! Remember to come link up with me On the Edge of the Week!

  14. Cute outfit (I am not a big fan of white myself. But the thing that I love most about this post is "My legs allow me to walk every day and get me places I've never been." Such a wonderful reminder! Thanks for sharing with us on #FridayFrivolity (did you notice I featured your Tribal Print you shared last week?)

  15. Welcome, Veronica!! It's so cool having you as a member of the Fab 40s :) and you may think this outfit is "simple", I think it's all manner of street cool style, baby!!!

  16. Age is definitely just a number. I would have never thought you were 40! You are looking fabulous!

  21. New research published by Chinese and Australian Scientists shows that playing action games helps increase the amount of gray matter and enhance brain performance.Friv 2
    A recent study conducted at Harvard University, researchers compared 32 "gamers" and 29 non-gamers.Y8GameAll study volunteers were male, and the average age was around 25 that met the study criteria.Kizi 5
    Researchers also used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to find structural differences in the brains of volunteers.Friv 6 In addition, volunteers also tested the brain reflex time during the scan.
    As a result, research proves that video game players have an increased amount of gray matter in areas of the brain that govern the movement of the body.Friv 2 This structural change has enabled "gamers" to perform simple movements without resorting to brain-focusing efforts.Friv 10000000
