I'm back from Santorini and still hosting the #iwillwearwhatilike link up - thank you to everyone who linked up while I was away! This week's optional theme is maxi dresses or skirts, so you can link up a maxi you've worn in an old post, a new post or on Instagram... If not, link up anything to show that you're part of the #iwillwearwhatilike movement!
Those of you who follow me on Instagram have probably seen many of my posts from Santorini, and I also posted two mini Insta round ups while I was away to give you a sneak peek into what I was up to and what I wore on this beautiful Greek island. I have so many outfit posts to share with you that I think it may take me up till December to fit them all in: It's strange to think I'll be posting summer outfits right up till Christmas, so we'll have to see!
This first outfit is actually an embroidered maxi dress under the gorgeous white lace top - both of them bought for a steal in the sales before I left. All it needed was the 70s style pendant necklace plus some strappy sandals, and the striped orange beach bag gave the injection of colour the outfit (and the shoot) needed. As there were photo opportunities everywhere you looked in Santorini I tried to vary the locations somewhat, so expect blue-domed churches, the sea and sunsets in future posts. Here I matched the black and white outfit to the wall just a few yards up from our hotel, and when the sun came out we thought it was only fair to sneak in that beautiful view.
Scroll down for the link up, and I'll be looking forward to interacting with everyone much more than I was able to while I was away...!
Are you a maxi skirt kinda girl? Do you like various skirt lengths or do you have a tried-and-tested one that's your go-to style? Do share in the comments!

Thank you for joining my new #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist's list of "inappropriate" items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
So link up all your fabulous outfits (or shoes, accessories, make-up, etc.) every Monday at 3pm UK time - it'll stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you're wearing whatever you damn well like!
** I'll feature my favourite maxis in next week's post **
** The optional theme for 19th October is [WEAR IT] PINK **
All I ask of you linking up is that you:
1. Please follow your host Not Dressed As Lamb (via Bloglovin or Instagram)
2. Link up your outfits (blog or Instagram posts) that show how you choose to wear what you like - as many as you like!
3. Include a link back to this post if you're linking from a blog post, or add my button (below)
4. Post your outfit on Instagram (if you use it) with the hashtag #iwillwearwhatilike - Monday's the day to join in the IG fun
5. Visit some of the other links and share the love!
Copy and paste this HTML code into your blog post or side bar:
Do share the love and visit as many links as you can (you never know what other lovely like-minded ladies you might meet) - the original Instagram campaign forged some wonderful new relationships so don't miss out!
