About

Not Dressed As Lamb style blogger

Not Dressed As Lamb is written by Catherine Summers (41) - an unnatural redhead.

A British freelance writer/style blogger waving the fashion flag for 40-somethings.
Sharing her personal style, photo tips, a few musings and great eyebrows.

Read about where she's been featured here.

An opposer of the term "age appropriate dressing", believing we should wear clothes we like, that suit us, and that are appropriate to the occasion.

A country-dwelling ex London resident who's been dubbed the "Queen of Clash" due to a penchant for pattern-mixing and a tendency to wear bright colours.

A huge fan of keeping fit, cherry lip balm, people watching, giraffes, the theatre, astronomy, freckles, and generally seeking out life's pleasures.

A clumsy oaf with a degree in photography and an imaginary PhD in internet clothes shopping.

Not Cathy, Cath, Cat, Cate or Kate - it's Catherine. No abbreviations pleeeease ("C" is fine though).

A lover of this blog and the fabulous friendships she's made along the way. Hoping to make more from writing it every day... why not get in touch and make her next friendship yours?


Whaaat - you want to know more? Oh, alright, then.

    1. Hi Renae - if you click on FAQs it explains my blog name! It's a play on words of an expression but I don't think some areas of the US have heard it...! C xx

  3. Hi Catherine, I am over the moon to have found your blog and have wallowed in an afternoon and evening of catching up on all your blogs and outfits. I am nearly 35 and have come to a juncture in my life when I'm not young, young but not old, old and basically I am rubbish at styling myself and live in 50's style dresses or tea dresses. This blog has given me so many ideas including what to do with my rapidly greying brown/black hair.
    So much inspiration for dress down, dress up, work wear etc.
    Lady I salute you!

  4. I'm so glad I found your blog. My attitude too. Life DOES begin at 40, if we decide that it does.

    I salute you too!

  6. I just found you Catherine! And I am so excited! I love your style! I love your tips! I love the way you edit your photos. I think you have become one of my daily blogs to look in on. I'm extra excited because we're the same age. I too am 41, but that's just a number. I live in Hong Kong. I'm an international educator during the day serving as a high school librarian, but at night, I blog! I've got two kids, a dog, and a husband. I'm a pisces; when's your birthday? I am telling you all this because I think you will be seeing me around;D Love, Ann of Kremb de la Kremb

  11. Catherine! Thank you for the sweet comment on the bloggy! ^_^ Can't believe I haven't seen you before. Plus, we have the same name :D
    And still can't believe you're 40, this must be magic! :D I want to look like you when I'm 40, though I doubt it :D

  12. Hi Carherine, I am soon to be 44, consider myself to by stylish, am tall and slim and like to think I have my own style, but find myself constantly worried about looking like mutton dressed as lamb!! The idea just popped into my head to search for a 40 something fashion blog and there you were! I can't believe I haven't thought of this before as your site is fantastic and really inspirational. The challenge for 40 something's is to look cool, stylish and fashion forward without bearing too much flesh (my tummy baring days are long gone), but not to resort to the beige anorak just yet. I have subscribed to your site and look forward to browsing your past 'looks'. Thanks so much for making me more confident to continue to follow current trends, with a 40 something flair!

  13. Hi Catherine,
    Absolutely love your trendy style!!!
    I am 40 and felt frumpy with my clothes, wish I was brave enough to mix things up a little!
    I shall take inspiration from you!
