Autumnal Colours #iwillwearwhatilike

Autumnal style | Sheer plaid shirt, mustard trousers, deep red bucket bag
I may be away on holiday for two weeks but that doesn’t mean the #iwillwearwhatilike link up isn’t going ahead!

I’ve got the autumnal ball rolling with this outfit of sheer orange checks, mustard trousers and vintage gold Leo pendant (last seen here). There’s no denying it will feel pre-tty cold in the UK when I get back…!

You can link up anything you like this week that proves you wear what you like – but the weekly theme is always optional don’t forget.

Thanks so much to everyone that linked up last week. The theme of statement shoes was very popular (I thought it would be) so it was hard to choose just a few favourites, but don’t miss those I’ve featured below. Do please support the #iwillwearwhatilike movement by sharing your looks on Instagram – don’t forget the hashtag – I’ll be checking my feed in Santorini (WiFi willing) so I’ll see you there!

What are you loving this week? Have you embraced any new season pieces or colours yet – do share in the comments!

#iwillwearwhatilike link up | Not Dressed As Lamb

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!

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!

    I so love the colors Catherine. The pants are particularly fabulous! And the braid in your hair is such a cool detail. 🙂 Thank you so much for choosing my fringe booties as one of your favorites from last week…I'm honored!

  11. 28 September 2015 / 10:17 pm

    You have the best color combos and make me think of color in new ways!

    Have a wonderful vacation!

    Thank you SO much for picking my heels, Catherine 🙂 as is clearly evident, I have a fondness, nay, weakness for shoes. I can't help myself. I go weak in the knees at the sight of fancy footwear xoxo

    LOVE your blouse! I'm embracing the boho trend and talking about it on my blog today. I think we can wear whatever we want regardless of our age! Thank you for providing this platform to let us express ourselves freely.


  14. 28 September 2015 / 8:46 pm

    Your colour combos are the best Catherine, love it! We were shopping today and I could buy everything plaid, so that's my highlight this week. Hope you're having a wonderful holiday Catherine. Much love, Kirsten xx

    Catherine, only you could look fab in pleated pants! Have a lovely holiday – and thanks for hosting!


  16. 28 September 2015 / 6:31 pm

    That is such a great shirt! Love the shoes too. Very modern seventies. I don't know how long I will be able to keep accidentally fitting in with the theme. It must be 'meant to be'. Thanks so much for hosting and have a fabulous week!!

    Great colours for a redhead. I'm more auburn/chestnut, but I love to wear orange to bring out the red, and even my freckles… Because I'll wear what I like! This week, what I like is a very spinstery outfit, circa 1930s… two weeks before my wedding.

    Great colours for Autumn. Have a wonderful holiday. Thanks for hosting.

    Such a happy look, dear Catherine.
    I do hope you have a fun, fabulous time in the Mediterranean.

    Really pretty fall colors. My closet certainly lacks these beautiful brown, orange and yellow colors 😛


  22. 28 September 2015 / 3:14 pm

    I love your colorful fall outfit. I've been buying lots of new fall clothes…can't wait till the weather cools enough to wear them. I bought a couple of vests, black jeans, black shorts, and a maxi dress. Have fun in Greece…lucky you!

  23. 28 September 2015 / 2:52 pm

    Beautiful colours on you! And the pendant is just wow, love it!

  24. 28 September 2015 / 2:20 pm

    Have a great holiday, Catherine!
