If you missed the first two challenges you can view both May and June here. X
So to re-cap on what 5 Over 50 is.
A theme is set by one of us each month that we then set about styling in our own individual way.
Founded by Gail from Is this Mutton? I have thoroughly enjoyed taking part each month, grasping some fresh ideas along the way!
So without further waffling here's July's challenge which was set by My friend Laurie from
Vanity and Me.
50 shades of Monochromatic.
I have to admit this one had me and my girls discussing what this style challenge actually meant!
We were tooing and froing between what we thought monochromatic was, is it only one colour for the whole outfit, or both black and white! As you can see obviously I was right! sorry girls - ha!
Well you can see what my interpretation was - All Yellow and canary yellow at that!
I think I fitted in well with the field of daisy's, Esther commented she felt our 'shoot' was very Marc Jacobs! except I'm not 16! Oh and not a model (laughs hilariously).
I could have picked any colour for this challenge, and sometimes having so much choice to start off with makes picking something harder! Going through my wardrobe I spotted this birthday present from the kids - bright yellow fitted trousers from Zara - now the challenge was starting to get easier!
Visiting my local Asda store I found the perfect matches in a cami top the exact same colour along with a chiffon sleeveless floral shirt - again in the same blaring canary yellow. The shirt has clusters of flowers over it giving a bit of depth to my look.
Hurray - my outfit was born. Adding gold strappy sandals, with a perfect heel height, again from Zara. Still keeping with the one colour theme, well, yellow/gold same thing through squinty eyes and a dim light lol.
Can you spot the black bugs that were drawn to the yellow? I was covered in them, I kept brushing them off, but they kept coming!! Esther wasn't left out either, they landed on her white tee shirt too!
I've got the bug - the love bug for this outfit!

This two bow detail on the side of these ankle length trousers is Cute-As-Hell!
My girls know me so well, I was thrilled when I opened the present and just as elated when I wore them for the first time. The bright canary yellow screams summer, and I felt warm and sunny when I wore them.
The only yellow bag I own ... opps sorry my daughter owns! You may have seen it before
here and here.
Trousers from Zara (reduced to £19.99)
