I can’t believe that it’s our monthly style challenge already. It only seems like a couple of weeks ago that we did the last challenge! I do so enjoy doing this, waiting in anticipation to see what the other girls will be wearing. We are all in the same age bracket and yet all of our style ideas are quite different.
“Orange is the new black” is our chosen theme for this month. Suggested by my good friend Ashley. And sadly this is the last time that Ashley will be taking part and I must say that she saved the best till last.
We will be having a surprise new over 50 blogger taking up the challenge with us next month.
So here’s my chosen outfit…
It doesn’t get simpler than this! A sleeveless orange top and Orange wedge sandals teamed with White straight trousers and White bag. Some Brown and Gold tones added, the necklace and sunglasses to jazz it up a little bit. A really easy to wear outfit.
I actually purchased the Orange wedge sandals last year and they have barely seen the light of day! Hidden amongst Piles of shoeboxes in my spare room, I must keep a check on what I have hidden away! Anyone else forget what they’ve purchased sometimes? I’m a stickler for keeping to what’s most comfortable.
The White bag is a different story. I love this bag from my Laura Ashley collaboration a while back here and I use it nearly on a daily basis. It’s still available in either Yellow or Blue and on sale here
Oh, and have you noticed? Straight hair! Well, it was until I got caught in the rain! Just a smidgen of damp and that’s my lot! I’d love to hear your thoughts.Straight or curly?
Do you wear a lot of orange? I have to say I was pretty stumped for this challenge! I have a fair bit of Red in my wardrobe but the only orange I have is this top and a skirt with orange in the pattern. I need to rectify that! I really like it.
So let’s take a look at what the rest of the 5 over 50 girls are wearing.
Ashley from Lazy Daisy Jones looks absolutely amazing here. I love the dress and the photo is stunning.

I hope you enjoy reading all the style challenges. The next challenge is lace, so I’m looking forward to that.
I may be missing in action the rest of this week. I’m having some work done on the blog and I’m moving over to a different platform, so it will be like learning all over again! I hope it’s going to be straightforward! Excited though!
