5 Over 50 May Outfit Challenge
5 over 50 is a monthly outfit challenge for 5 women over 50 and that includes me!
At the start of 2017, I decided to be a little braver and not worry so much about what other people thought of me. I started a new ‘style’ as in ‘not fashion’ Instagram account. I wanted to explore my style as a woman over 50 and share with my ‘tribe’ You can read more about my thoughts on this subject on this post

It began slowly, at first I was shy about showing my face (why is that?) However, today I have a small but engaged following of almost 500. I am having fun playing on instagram and gaining confidence in my personal style, plus I have made some new friends!
5 over 50 May, the challenge.
I have been invited by Gail from the blog ‘Is this Mutton’ to take part in an outfit challenge, she is kindly hosting. I thought it was a brilliant idea and excitedly agreed to take part.
The idea is that each of us in the group (there are 5 of us over 50, hence the name) takes it in turn to suggests a theme, which we each then interpret into our own personal style. Gail’s theme kicking off the challenge for May is …
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you probably know I work as a ‘wardrobe mistress’ and as such I can get into messy situations at work ie. make-up, glitter and dusty costume stores. So, I rarely need to dress in formal workwear outfits. I live and die in Jeans…comfy and practical.
My interpretation for 5 over 50 May:
My classic Chanel Mini ‘2.55’ style bag.
Bought from the Chanel boutique in Cannes in 1989. It has travelled the world on my shoulder and like me is now looking a little jaded! I treasure and love it, so really ought to send it off for a ‘service’
My new gold leather mules from JD Williams. They have a soft drape bow front and a stacked block heel with a padded sole. Comfy and pretty, win win!
Don’t laugh but this t shirt belongs to my 15-year-old son!
A limited edition and now out of stock, Sadé graphic T-sht from the much-hyped label Supreme. He gave me special permission to wear it and even remarked that I looked cool. Wow wonders will never cease.
My jeans of course!
This pair are my new favourites. I recently purchased from Zara’s Regent St. store.
