Morning my friends.
Hope your month went well.
June this week sounds crazy doesn't it!
As it's the last Monday of the month it's time to look at what the ladies from Style not Age have been working on. It was my turn this time and as it fell in my birth month I thought the title of
Birthstone Beauties would be a topical challenge. I'm thrilled to see each of my friends have a different stone, all the looks are so different and our individual personalities really do shine through.
I've always loved my birthstone, it's an Emerald and although I don't wear much green I always feel it suits me so well - do let me know what you think. X
Let's talk you through my outfit, I started off at the bottom and basically worked my way up!
So the shoes were the start, I have been longing for a pair of bright and vibrant shoes so when I saw these striking green pair on the website I jumped on them. The tie fashion really caught my eye and I hoped the wouldn't look out of place on me and I'm happy to say I think they look fine. I've been trying a few ways to actually tie them round my ankles and found this way to be the most flattering and comfortable. If you're fond of this style I say go for it and see how they look, catch mine here on the Missguided site.
I thought about mixing pink with the green shoes, I have a super pair of pink jeans that would be perfect - that's a popular combination being worn at the moment and I've yet to try it out!
I spotted this cover-up in F&F and figured it would double up as a jacket on cooler days as well as over a swim suit on holiday, but what could I team it with? Yellow, yellow and green is a brilliant combination isn't it and I think you'll agree it looks stunning together doesn't it!
These trousers are from Zara and are a few years old, but that doesn't stop them from being bang on trend at the moment, even the double bows on either side of the ankle are a statement look. I'm pleased that I can still get into them, I'm putting that down to the calorie counting I've been doing recently - dropping a few pounds has made the world of difference.
My slinky top has also been around for a while, I picked it up in Matalan along with three other colours.
It's an easy to wear, style and wash and looks super cute with jeans and you can see it goes well with this floral skirt too.
Here' that bow detail, cute isn't it? These are quite fitted and hold in the right places without being too uncomfortable. I tucked the top into them and bagged it over in a blouson fashion. The long duster jacket is long and finishes just below the knee, it has a nice big tie which I made into a bow at the front.
I think it's a perfect look for a special occasion.
Anna - Anna's Island Style found this challenge hard, but managed to borrow pieces from her friend! I’m so glad she did as you looks stunning in garnet - her birthstone. Even though you weren't that impressed with the prompt, you've chosen well and this outfit and colour really suit you Hun. x
The next offering is from Gail - Is this Mutton, her birthstone is topaz. Gail has worked her outfit around a stunning topaz pendant bought in Greece. It's a perfect combination and looks great on you my friend. X
Shall we take a look a what Emma's gem is? Ruby red is Emma's stone and I adore the whole ensemble from the tweed jacket to the wide leg trousers, this is one I'd be picking too! Catch more about her look over on Style Splash.
Hilda's choice is another pretty gemstone .. turquoise. Hilda worked her magic and found the perfect bag and dress to complete her shining outfit. You can see more over on Hilda's blog Over the Hilda.
