As I write this I can’t believe that a whole month has gone by already! Time is flying!
This is the second Five Over Fifty challenge where a theme is chosen and we style ourselves, in our own interpretation of that theme.
I find it interesting that we all have our own flair and different outlook on style and how we portray our own version of the chosen theme. If you didn’t catch the first challenge last month, you can find it here
This month’s challenge “Marvellous Metallics” was chosen by Anna. Let’s see how we decided to show this trend in our own personal style
I’ve chosen these glam faux-leather Jeans as the main focal point of the challenge. I bought these way back, just after Christmas in the sales at FandF. I liked the fact that these jeans are a muted golden/bronze shade and not too shiny and bright a gold.I think this colour will mix with literally any colour in my wardrobe and will look great with boots and a cream chunky jumper in winter for a casual look.
For the top half of the outfit, I have kept it really simple by just adding a plain cream shirt. I bought this shirt yonks ago in Primark. In fact, I bought nearly every shade they had! And they come in so handy and go with everything. You can’t beat a classic button through plain shirt. A good wardrobe staple.
I’ve just added Golden accessories to complete the look. I think the sandals are around twelve years old! I had to dig them out of my storage! (I knew they’d come in handy once more!) The Gold clutch bag is Marc Jacobs and comes in handy for any evening look.
The round hoop necklace was purchased from FandF. A handy little item that you can thread anything onto, so I will be creating lots of different looks from this similar here I’ve attached my dad’s gold toothpick left to me and I wear it regularly. (not that I’m often picking my teeth lol)
A longer gold chain and wooden beaded necklace for some extra colour tones, and a Gold Watch and bracelet completed the look.So the plain Cream shirt provided the base for all these Gold tones. What do you think?
Let’s take a look at what the girls chose
Gail from Is This Mutton has chosen this “rock chick look” A good example of how to make a pleated skirt look edgy by adding the Gold block heeled boots and T-shirt
Ashley from Lazy Daisy Jones has created a feminine floaty romantic look with her pleated skirt and gorgeous Blue Denim top. Love her Boho style! I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley a couple of weeks ago. More on that later!
Anna from Anna’s Island Style has created a fabulous look with Silver pleated skirt and accessories. I’m always envying her scenic backgrounds for photos too!
Jacqui from Mumma Be Stylish shows us how to glam up a casual outfit with hints of Metallics. Sometimes it’s just the accessories that pull the look together!
Do pop over to the other blogger’s post and read how we all created the looks for this style challenge. None of us knows what each of us is wearing until the deadline for the post. I always look forward to their interpretation of the look! Have a great week.
