SUPERHEROS AND THE FAB 40'S

Today I am joining the fabulous ladies of the Fab 40s for their monthly Stylings with a theme! The theme selected for the month was by my precious and amazing friend Suzy from the Suzy Turner blog! The second I read the theme was female Superhero’s, I knew my intent would not be to emulate any particular superhero but to cast a light on the fact that all of us women are superheroes in our own way! AND Suzy pointed out Yesterday was National Superhero Day!


 
I had seen this cape blazer with the varsity stripe down the side on SheIn the week before and it was a no brainer that this would be the focus of my outfit. You see, I have always felt that A cape or cape blazer makes you feel extra invincible and is so superhero like! You could maybe even call me “Bun Girl” as my superhero name because you know I love to wear my high bun!

 A few weeks before the Fabulous Suzy asked me to join the Fab 40s, we went to see the movie Captain Marvel. It was the first time in a DC Marvel movie, that a female superhero was cast as the lead. Talk about empowering. Brie Larson Who played Captain Marvel stated about her character “I love that she’s flawed. I love the fact that because she’s a risk taker, you watch someone who also then falls on her face because they’re swinging big, that feels very relatable to me. I love that you see someone who doesn’t always make the right judgement call.”

 I think that sums us all up. We are not perfect, and we are flawed but when we take risks and go out on a limb, we can often make such a difference in the world. I think we all possess superhero like characteristics that make us all very unique and different yet the same at heart!

 Tap in to the things that make you powerful and always use those talents and powers for good! Do your part to make this world a 
better place with the gifts you’ve been given!
And who knows, I may just wear this cape when we go to see the Avengers movie this weekend!

In case you didn’t know, The Fab 40’s is a group of six fashion bloggers from around the globe. Each month they choose a different theme and invite a guest blogger who is also in their 40’s to join them. This group’s goal is to take on style trends and show how they each interpret and incorporate them into their own lives. With six widely varied views, you are certain to find something that speaks to you each month and encourages you to continue to have fun with fashion after the age of 40.

Here are the SUPERHERO woman who comprise the Fab 40’s and how they interpreted the theme! Honored to be a part of this group!
