As we’re drawing to the end of August that means the end of #iwillwearwhatilike – and I thought it a good opportunity to showcase some of the amazing style that I’ve seen on Instagram so far for this campaign. All of these women over 30 (many are over 40 or 50) have really embraced breaking the style “rules” that were the theme of #iwillwearwhatilike. There have been some truly fabulous outfits and incredible pieces that definitely do NOT deserved to be relegated to the scrap heap just because some journalist says we should stop wearing them when we reach 30 years of age!
I’ve included some of the best posts from days 1-15 and will show the second half next week once August is over. I want to thank all these lovely ladies from the bottom of my heart for joining in with this campaign. They’re showing everyone that it’s not okay to dictate to women what they should and shouldn’t wear, not matter what their age. Fashion should be fun, and why on earth would we deprive ourselves of fun just because we’re getting older?!
I’ve tried to include as many different Instagrammers as possible – I had so much choice for some days (I’m talking about you, leopard print) that I felt bad leaving out so many great looks. But believe me, there are so many more chic ladies out there on the #iwillwearwhatilike hashtag.
Do please check out these great accounts and show them some love. I’d also love to know what you think of the campaign in the comments and whether any of these lovely ladies have inspired you…!

Day 14 of #iwillwearwhatilike Tube Tops. I have to admit, this is the hardest post for me to do and I almost didn’t do it. My tummy is my trouble spot no matter how much I work at it. But in the spirit of the challenge, I’m going to be brave! The last time I wore a tube top was high school – without a kimono!
