On 3rd September 2015 I started the very first #iwillwearwhatilike link up - one year on and it's still going strong!
As this week's theme is polka dots I've celebrated the one year anniversary with a round up of my favourite polka dot outfits from my years of blogging. I think it's highlighted the fact that I don't wear polka dots nearly as often as I should, so I've made a mental note to change that in the near future.
AND AFTER A YEAR OF HOSTING THE LINK UP I'VE DECIDED TO CHANGE THINGS A LITTLE - DON'T WORRY, THE LINK UP ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE
And after a year of hosting the link up I've decided to change things a little - don't worry, the link up isn't going anywhere and it'll still be every Monday at 3pm UK time, but I thought it was time to shake things up a bit!
Basically it's been quite hard to come up with a new theme every week, so I'm simply going to retire the theme. The whole philosophy of #iwillwearwhatilike still applies, so it's still THE place to show us your outfits, old and new.
I'll still feature my favourites (remember you need to include a link or my button in your post if you want to be featured).
I will also be taking a little blogging break: The Monday link up will still continue, and I'm going to feature my all-time favourite outfits that have been linked up over the past year in a special One Year Anniversary post. However other posts will be put on hold for either a week, 10 days or two weeks, depending on how long I need... More on that in a brief explanation post tomorrow or Wednesday.
But I PROMISE you I'll be back, so do peruse my archives in the meantime:
- All my outfits, ever
- Posts about my thoughts on fashion and style topics
- Health, beauty, fitness and self-image posts
- Ways to wear different styles and items of clothing
- General musings on life 'n stuff
As always do add your outfits to this week's link up - click the blue button below and follow the instructions!

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!
