17 Women of All Shapes, Sizes and Ages Wearing Bikinis, Swimsuits and Cover Ups - The #iwillwearwhatilike Swimwear Special

Swimwear special - Women of all ages wearing bikinis, swimsuits, cover ups (whatever they like) - Kremb de la Kremb
Hopefully you saw my post from last Monday - the #iwillwearwhatilike link up - where I talked about how women of any age can wear whatever they want when it comes to beachwear and swimwear? That they can choose to wear bikinis, swimsuits or completely cover up if they so wish?

If you didn't, please go check it out now(!) - so many wonderful women women decided to show us what their preferred style was for the beach and the pool. And as I always feature four or five of my faves the following week, I knew I had to do this again, but how do you choose just a few when everyone was so fabulous?

Easy - dedicate a whole post to them. I am absolutely stoked to be able to bring you a whole post entirely devoted to 17 women of all shapes, sizes and ages wearing bikinis, swimsuits and cover ups... their beachwear of choice, in other words.

WE THOUGHT WE'D HAD ENOUGH OF BEING TOLD NOT TO WEAR BIKINIS, BUT IT SEEMS IT'S NOW THE TURN OF THE BURKINI TO ACTUALLY BE BANNED IN ONE PART OF THE WORLD. 

This is a timely post it seems - we thought we'd had enough of being told not to wear bikinis, but it's now the turn of the burkini to actually be banned in one part of the world. We're told to cover ourselves up, we're told to uncover ourselves. We simply cannot win. There's only one thing to do:

My Favourite Fun and Fabulous Links - August 2016

Favourite Fun & Fabulous Links August 2016 | Not Dressed As Lamb
There's so much good stuff out there to read right now - August may traditionally be the 'quiet month' where blogging's concerned but that doesn't seem to have affected the quality of what I've been reading lately!

My Favourite Fun and Fabulous Links is a monthly post of things I've seen, watched and liked on the internet that I'm sure you'll love too. This month I'm sharing Audrey's entire Breakfast at Tiffany's wardrobe, a stunning photo shoot in the rain, a natural make up look for 40+ women and thoughts on dressing your age - by a (very articulate) teenager.

The weekly Capsule Wardrobe Pieces series will take a break this week as my fave links post comes to you every fourth Wednesday of the month, so that series will be back next week with no.4 - plain white t-shirts!

How to Wear All-White Without Feeling Like a Giant Marshmallow + the #iwillwearwhatilike Link Up

How to style white dungarees in the summer: Grey marl t-shirt, white shoes, tan crossbody bag (great for redheads) | Not Dressed As Lamb
Happy Monday folks! I thought I'd show you another way to style the white dungarees I bought this summer (last seen without a t-shirt and with red espadrilles). All-white can be difficult to wear without looking like (or rather, feeling like) a giant marshmallow...!

I think what's great about these dungarees is that they're not pure brilliant white, they're actually off-white. That can cause some problems where matching white accessories is concerned, but I think off-white always looks good with neutrals. So for this weekend's casual look (that you may have seen on my Instagram stories!) I threw on a grey marl t-shirt and added my tan crossbody bag that matches my hair of all things.

APPARENTLY WHITE SHOES ARE THE SHOES TO BE SEEN IN AT THE MOMENT, SO OF COURSE THAT MAKES ME [AHEM] THE ULTIMATE IN ON-TREND FASHION BLOGGERS.

Rather than donning tan shoes (and I wanted something a little flatter than the tan heels I have) I wore my off-white block heel shoes - it was just a stroke of luck that they're off-white too. Apparently white shoes are THE shoes to be seen in at the moment, so of course that makes me [ahem] the ultimate in on-trend fashion bloggers. Oh, the lengths I go to to make sure I'm ahead of the game ;)

Anyway - the trick to avoiding marshmallow-like status in all white!

Feeling Good About Your Wardrobe When You Don't Fit into Anything Anymore | Comfy Summer Neutrals

Styling summer neutrals: Blue chambray shirt, khaki pants, crossover mules, Panama hat, Cambridge Satchel Co cloud bag | Not Dressed As Lamb
There comes a time in many a girl's life where she opens up the wardrobe and tries to find something to wear, only to reject item after item because she simply can't fit into anything any more. This has happened to me a lot over the years - my weight yo-yos up and down, and I can often remember the times that I've sat on the bed crying, clothes strewn all over the place, because everything I've tried on is just too tight, uncomfortable or simply won't. Go. On...!

Not wanting this post to be too much of a downer, I'll mention that the #notlambFIT series stalled big time in May, and it in fact went the other way... It's going to be resurrected, and I'll take responsibility for my eating and exercise habits once more.

I FOUND THAT I ABSOLUTELY COULDN'T FIT INTO ABOUT 50% OF MY SUMMER WARDROBE. ANYTHING THAT WAS REMOTELY FITTED WAS JUST A NO-GO.

Meantime - there is a way to feel good about your wardrobe once again, albeit temporarily. With the summer season clothes changeover (it never warms up till about June-July in the UK, so I'm usually still wearing my winter clothes till then), I found that I absolutely couldn't fit into about 50% of my summer wardrobe. Anything that was remotely fitted was just a no-go.
