Summer Sizzlers: Style Not Age Challenge

 Gail Hanlon in pink and lime green for the July Style Not Age Challenge of Summer Sizzlers photographed on the Greek island of Skiathos.

Dear friends. We're all in celebratory mood here at the Style Not Age Challenge.  Anna, who lives on the Isles of Scilly, decided to celebrate summer with the theme "Summer Sizzlers."  Jacqui, Emma and I took our pictures on holiday, and Hilda and husband G are celebrating their 40th (ruby) wedding anniversary.

I don't have any sizzling summer dresses or jumpsuits so I relied on my trusty separates to provide a nice colour pop.  My double-fronted sleeveless v neck top, current, from Kettlewell, in pink fizz, is a great match for the oleander. Pink and green always look good together so I'm wearing lime green crops from Roman, sold out, plus my jewelled sandals (old, Accessorize) and gold bag (old, New Look). Necklaces are from Etsy.

The photos were taken in Skiathos, Greek Islands, in and around the hotel. Below: this charming courtyard was outside our hotel room at the Kassandra Bay Hotel

Anna, from Anna's Island Style, who came up with this month's challenge, is wearing an orange lace  jumpsuit, old, from TK Maxx with sandals to match. She added a gilt belt from Primark to give a bit more dazzle. 

Emma from Stylesplash took her pictures on holiday in Funchal, Madeira. She bought her dress, from  No 1 George Street, with a £100  voucher she was gifted on Instagram. Her luck didn't end there because Emma also won a £100 gift voucher for Kooky Two in the same giveaway,  and bought the star necklace she's wearing. It just goes to show it IS worth entering those Instagram giveaways. Her bag is M&S (from eBay) and her hat is from a local boutique.

Hilda from Over the Hilda chose her favourite colour, red, and is wearing a shirt (old) and jeans (current) from a boutique local to her in Malahide, Ireland.  The orange sling back shoes are oldies but goodies from Clarks and the beaded bag (old) is from Zara.  Hilda was on her way to the Powerscourt Hotel in Co Wicklow to celebrate her 40th wedding anniversary. Congratulations to Hilda and G. I will be 90 if I get to my 40th anniversary!

Jacqui from Mummabstylish took her pictures at Lindos on the Greek island of Rhodes. How sensational does she look in a daring new swimsuit from Debenhams, lace trousers (old) and a new hat from Dune.  Jacqui finished off with a straw bag and pink mules.

I hope you enjoyed our summer sizzlers! What in your wardrobe would you class as a summer sizzler? Do tell in the comments.
