It is that time of the month again when I get the chance to collaborate with some pretty fabulous forty something Fashionista's for the " Fab 40's "  .  Every month we select a theme and we each create what that looks like to each of us. It is an awesome way to get our creative juices flowing and get inspired by each other.  

This month our them is "Evening to Daytime" . We each select a fancy night time piece and find a way to use that piece in a daytime look . Now how fun is that ?What a great way to increase the size of your closet and believe me anything that expands my closet sounds like a good idea to me. 

I decided to take this natural colored sequined pencil skirt that I picked up during the holiday season that I had never worn and decided to put this skirt of bling to use.  I wanted to give a casual chic vibe by adding an off the shoulder sweater with a choker and clogs.  I look forward to wearing this during the holiday season with gold perhaps or maybe with a graphic tee like my fellow  fab 40 girl Sheela ! 

                          Skirt - Carson's, Top- H&M, Shoes - Jessica Simpson, Bag- Jcpenney

                                  Now let's see the other " Fab 40's " take on this theme.
                                                Samantha - Fake Fabulous

I thought I would start out the the lovely Samantha because this months theme was her idea.  I love the idea because it is totally something I would have never thought of so that makes it even more fun. Samantha decided to use an occasion dress and turn it into a skirt.  I love the way that she totally created a different look . I love the casual chic vibe she created. I am telling you she has mastered the pattern mixing trend. 

                                        Vale - Fashion and Cookies
Vale is our guest blogger and her style made such an impression on me.  I love the feminine look with a little tasteful sexiness with the lace top and the shoes are to die for... Can we be friends? Love everything about this look ! 

                                      Sheela - Sheela Writes
Ok every month Sheela always amazes me with her creativity and her shoes.  I love the sequin pants paired with the graphic tee. So fun and chic! Love it 

                                 Diane - Fashion on the 4th Floor
I just love Diane's fun and fierce style. Her style reflects her zest for life and she makes everything look great. Who knew that  jean shorts , gym shoes and sequins could be so effortlessly chic! Amazing look my friend 

                                Jennie - A Pocketful of Polka Dots
   Jennie always has this way of making casual look fabulous .  I love the way she took this top with bling and brought it down a notch with the rolled up jeans and casually chic snakeskin shoes. I am always a fan ! 

                                     Ann-Kremb De La Kremb

I am loving the way Ann went full blown sequin on sequin and created this sporty look. She is certainly living up to the words on her tee " Life is Party dress like it " .. oh and I am going to need to get that shirt.  She totally embraced this month and I love it lady ! 

Well my fabulous friends how did you like this months theme? Is this something that you will try?  I love getting out my comfort zone and finding those combinations that I would have never even thought about . I love they way we as women can inspire each other. 

                As always I want to thank you for taking time out your busy day and stopping by!
