6 Great Autumn (Fall) Outfit Ideas, Over 40 Style

6 Great Autumn (Fall) Outfit Ideas, Over 40 Style | Not Dressed As Lamb
Here it is: A simple, definitive guide to six great autumn/fall outfit ideas for some over 40 style (or older, or younger) inspiration! To be honest it doesn't really make any difference - if you like my style, you like my style. I've picked some of my own outfits with shopping picks for you to hopefully get some new ideas.

After the end of each season I usually do a round up of the best outfits I wore from those previous three months, but showing summer outfits in September when we're heading into colder weather doesn't really make much sense. So I've looked back over last autumn and this spring - after all, the temperatures are about the same! - to show you some outfit ideas and tips for how to style what you may currently have in your wardrobe right now.

THE OUTFITS I'VE CHOSEN ARE LEANING TOWARDS THE AUTUMNAL TONES OF CAMEL, GREY, PEACH, DEEP RED AND ORANGE (WITH A HEFTY DOSE OF BLUE OR DENIM WITH WHICH YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG).

The outfits I've chosen are leaning towards the autumnal tones of camel, grey, peach, deep red and orange (with a hefty dose of blue or denim with which you can never go wrong). Very similar pieces are available in the shops right now so take a look at some of the shopping ideas I've found for you.

Do check back in on Sunday morning for a post where I'll be asking you your thoughts about a particular subject where the blog is concerned... I need your feedback, my lovelies!

Casual weekend wear | Denim jacket with scarf, polka dots, khaki pants, Adidas Originals

1. On casual days swap your your jeans for track pants and add a denim jacket and classic sneakers

A patterned sweatshirt (in this case I chose polka dots) under a denim jacket always works - add a few great accessories that are practical, too, like a bright scarf and mirrored sunglasses. Original post

The Best of the Blogosphere - 13 Unmissable Links (September 2016)

13 Unmissable Links | The Best of the Blogosphere - September 2016 | Not Dressed As Lamb
My Favourite Fun and Fabulous Links now has a new name: The Best of the Blogosphere - Unmissable Links! It's still a monthly post of things I've seen, watched and liked on the internet, but I'm going to concentrate on what's been going on in the Blogosphere only. It's also staying in its current spot of the fourth Wednesday of the month.

This month I'm sharing a refreshingly honest beauty review, posts about travelling solo and taking the controls of a jet plane, notes on older women making waves at Fashion Week and what happens when you get bumped to first class on Emirates.

I've loved reading and discovering these blog posts and vlogs - I hope you will too...!

WHAT LINKS DID YOU LIKE - AND HAVE YOU FOUND ANY FABULOUS NEW BLOGS TO FOLLOW? COMMENT BELOW, OR TWEET ME @NOTLAMB!


Excellent blog posts to read

Why Hayley decided to travel solo: A scary prospect for many of us, but with many older women being divorced or separated it's something we shouldn't just rule out.

I've just discovered the amazingly bright, fun and infectious style of Instagrammer @pompadour_vintage - you will love her.

Greetje's before and after of a woman over 60 is all the proof anyone needs that colourful, stylish clothes and accessories make all the difference as you get older.

How to Style Cropped Wide Leg Jeans For Autumn/Fall + the #iwillwearwhatilike Link Up

How to style cropped wide leg jeans for autumn (fall) - olive cardigan - Birkin-style bag - coloured neck scarf | Not Dressed As Lamb, style over 40
Olive knitwear, a cognac-coloured tote bag, a silk scarf with deep brown, yellow and green tones... I know autumn has definitely arrived when I start choosing these sorts of colours!

I wanted to style one of my favourite items I bought in the summer - the cropped wide leg jeans (similar) - for the fall, so while I only needed to add some layers, I can still get away with bare ankles/no socks for a while yet (I hope so, anyway). I have a feeling I'll be wearing these jeans as much with ankle boots throughout autumn/winter: They're the perfect length for a funky ankle boot (these peach boots with perspex heel are my current OMG-gorgeous faves).

Strangely I actually bought the olive cardigan at the end of last summer as an evening cover up for our Santorini holiday (being a useful thing to have when the sun had gone down explains why it didn't appear in any daytime photo shoots). But being olive green it's a perfect autumn piece and I think it'll be on rotation a lot this season.

SO WHEN OCTOBER ROLLS AROUND THIS WEEKEND (EEP!) I'LL BE GETTING OUT MY WINTER CLOTHES FROM STORAGE AND SEEING WHAT FITS AND WHAT DOESN'T. AND WHAT I WANT TO KEEP, AND WHAT'S GOTTA GO.

So when October rolls around this weekend (eep!) I'll be getting out my winter clothes from storage and seeing what fits and what doesn't. And what I want to keep, and what's gotta go. In yesterday's post I wrote about how I'm starting the 90 Day SSS Plan by The Body Coach, so hopefully anything that doesn't fit right now should do by Christmas.

A New Fitness Regime | I'm Doing The Body Coach 90 Day Shift, Shape & Sustain Plan

A New Fitness Regime | The Body Coach 90 Day Shift, Shape & Sustain Plan #notlambFIT |Not Dressed As Lamb
Today is 25th September - that means Christmas is exactly three months away... How scary is that thought?! (I'm so sorry for pointing it out!)

It's pretty apt however, as today I'm starting a new fitness programme that I've invested in: The Body Coach 90 Day SSS (Shift, Shape and Sustain) Plan. (Yes, the #notlambFIT programme that stalled abysmally sometime earlier this year is back on track as part of my recent "I'm back" drive.)

For those of you that don't know Joe Wicks A.K.A. The Body Coach, he started off as something of an Instagram sensation and has been on my radar for a few months now. I'd been intrigued about his methods since having a bit of a read of his book Lean in 15: 15-Minute Meals and Workouts to Keep You Lean and Healthy that my niece had for her birthday. His recipes all looked so delicious (and it didn't hurt that he was somewhat easy on the eye, though not quite so easy on the ear #sorryJoe).

"JOE'S PHILOSOPHY TO HEALTH AND FITNESS IS SIMPLE. FUEL YOUR BODY WITH LOTS OF FOOD AND CONCENTRATE ON CORRECTLY TIMING YOUR MACRONUTRIENTS TO ENSURE YOUR BODY BURNS FAT, INCREASES IN ENERGY AND TRANSFORMS YOU INTO THE SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE"
- The Body Coach

His website says "Using Instagram, Joe created Leanin15 as a way of both showcasing some of the food contained within his meal plan and to inspire people to take control of their diet with quick, fun and easy cooking. Joe's philosophy to health and fitness is simple. Fuel your body with lots of food and concentrate on correctly timing your macronutrients to ensure your body burns fat, increases in energy and transforms you into the shape of your life."

So why did I choose to go ahead and buy this plan?
