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!
SHOP THE LOOK:
I think it's a good idea to wear something that's belted - anything too voluminous and you could end up looking like the Stay Puft Man. But as this link up is called #iwillwearwhatilike, I say go for it if that's the look you're after - you don't have to listen to me (or anyone)!
And talking of the link up, this week's #iwillwearwhatilike theme is ANYTHING - it was meant to be summer sandals but with the wind and rain we had this weekend I wasn't going to expose my toes to the elements this time. So simply add your outfits to this week's link up and you may be featured next week if your outfit catches my eye!

Thank you for joining the #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!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will 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!
The OPTIONAL theme for next week (29 AUGUST) is summer sandals - we'll try again...!
