Finding Your Favorite Color - The Fab 40's

It's time for another installment of The Fab 40's!  This month we took it a bit easy, Ann chose the theme, to create an outfit with our favorite color. Seems easy enough right?  Well immediately I knew the answer would be black for me. Some may argue black is not a real "color"  but hey for some of us it is! As usual I like to challenge my self a bit when doing the Fab 40's post each month. I decided not to go with black, since probably more than half of my wardrobe is black, this would indeed be a challenge.  OK so what other colors do I love.  One of my current faves is olive green, but nope couldn't put together a decent outfit with that color.  OK how about 3rd favorite, yup that will work! Can you guess what my 3rd fave color is?

You may think its red, but nope not a big fan of red. Unless its lipstick or nail polish, you will rarely see me in bright red anything.  I do however really like the color burgundy, maroon, ox blood and merlot. Call it what you will, but that deep red with hues of purple is one of my favorite colors! After looking in my closet for this post, I realized there are several burgundy color pieces in there.

One of those items being this awesome satin bomber jack I bought a few months ago. Its been in my closet for too long, the time has come to unveil it. How can you not love it, the color is gorgeous and it shows off my love of being a California girl!  Honestly I love this jacket so much, which is the reason I had not worn it. I am afraid to ruin it or get it stained!  That is why I have not worn it in months!!! Silly I know, but this is not a jacket which can easily be replaced. 

It just so perfectly me!  I have always been proud to say I'm a California Girl. Even though when you think of the stereotypical California girl, I am sure I do not come to mind.  Blond hair, blues eyes, tanned and toned body is probably the norm, non-Californians may picture. Hey guess what this great state of mine is very diverse and we have all types of beautiful people. I was born and raised in this state, my heart and soul are 100% pure California girl.  From the cool-laid back style, to the fun atmosphere and beautiful sunshine. I love being a California Girl.  So here is my favorite color burgundy for this months Fab 40's!

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy these Fab 40's monthly post. Its always fun to collaborate with other awesome bloggers. Make sure you show all my Fab 40's buddies some love and check out their blogs.  Did you figure out what everyones fave colors are?


  1. Oooh! Vero!! I love the back of the bomber!! I'm traveling in California this summer. Kevin and I are taking a road trip on Highway 1 and 101 (I get them confused) from LA to San José to celebrate 20 years this summer! Kevin even rented a convertible. I can hardly wait! And I need to borrow your bomber.

    I'm so happy you chose burgandy. It looks fabulous on you and your skin tone. I know you love wearing your black, but these deep colors are great on you too! ;D

    Guess what? I am so proud to call myself a California girl too. I was born in French Camp, California. It's a blip on the map, but I was born in General Hospital there; I lived there till I was two. We then moved to Sacremento where we lived for two more years. So, even though I am definitely more from the Pacific Northwest, I do love to say that I was born in California. It makes me feel special. Where do you live in CA?

    Love, Ann

  2. the bordeaux&white jacket is a real stunner! and it suits your own colors perfectly - no wonder you love this dark reds instead of the bright ones :-)
    i´m more a "red red" gal as i look washed out in the wine-colors - but my 1. fav color is green - bottle green. had to smile about all the black in your wardrobe - i came from a 80% black wardrobe to now having a problem if i have to attend a funeral...... (i solve this with wearing dark colored folk costume)
    glad i found you and the other 40+ ladies here - fabulous bunch!

  3. You are just too cool & love your California laid-back style! This bomber jacket is a life-longer & there is no way you can ruin this, give it away or let a friend borrow it! I love oxblood, burgundy as well ... I call it the sophisticated sister of RED! I love you are rocking overalls with sneakers as well..... this look is something I would pull as well! Great share this month Vero!!!

  4. Thanks for sharing the information. It is very useful for my future. keep sharing

  5. The Origina Replica Breitling claimed the bubble as a potential source of weakness that they were finally able to overcome with technology. Well, heading back to the late 1960’s and the high-end?,Rolex Submarine the brand took a page from the contemporary Detroit era of cars – as in, there’s no cure for cubic inches. In 1:1 Replica Rolex Watches case, though,He sent lots of pictures along the way to show the innards of the?Omega Watches , including the Hermes handbags correctly signed inside case back.

  6. I love all the posts, I really enjoyed, I would like more information about this, because it is very nice., Thanks for sharing.

  7. It seems I'm on the right track, I hope I can do well. The result was something I did and was doing to implement it.

  8. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.

  9. Compared to many other watches out there Panerai watches are simple, but the devil is in the polish and the details. The refined designs are flattering to the wearer and function well as timepieces. Replica Panerai watches smooth sides of the square Santos are enhanced by screws on the rubber coated black bezel and on the segmented rubber strap.My personal favorite line in the Replica Panerai Watches collection is the Santos. The Replica Panerai Watches100 XL is their larger version of the watch, the standard model is a bit small for my tastes.In a route one way, this influence makes a lot of sense - the purpose of both sets of images is to create striking pictures that put Valentino handbags in the centre.
