Last week saw the very first #iwillwearwhatilike link up and I just want to say a huge thank you to all who joined in! With nearly 80 posts linked up I’d say that was pretty successful for the very first one, so please spread the word to get more lovely ladies to join in (say yes to the tweet option when you link up and don’t forget to add the hashtag on your Instagram your post too). I’d love it to grow and grow, so thank you in advance!
Today’s theme is sheer as suggested by Amy Johnson a couple of weeks ago – a good one to get in before autumn properly gets a grip. I’ve had both the vintage sheer blouse and the chevron midi skirt a long time… in fact I wore the same two pieces in this post four years ago when the blog was only a baby(!). You might see how I’ve improved my hand-posing tenfold, and don’t miss the hilarious “advice” I was given in the comments about not mixing patterns. Quite apt, seeing as this link up is called #iwillwearwhatilike…!
I thought I’d simply switch up the styling and accessories (including a completely different hairstyle which I find always makes a huge difference to the look of an outfit) to make it fresh again.
Scroll down for the link up – remember you can link up Instagram posts as well as blog posts, and the sheer theme is optional so link up any outfit, hairstyle, make-up or accessories that you like!
Do you ever go back and re-style outfit combinations you’ve worn before? Let me know in the comments!

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. 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 fabulous!
My favourite riots of COLOUR from last week’s link up:
If you link up this week’s theme: Sheer, I’ll pick my favourite(s) to feature in next week’s post!
** The optional theme for 21st September is STATEMENT SHOES **
All I ask of you linking up is that you:
1. Please follow your host Not Dressed As Lamb (via Bloglovin or Instagram)
2. Link up your outfits (blog or Instagram posts) that show how you choose to wear what you like
3. Include a link back to this post if you’re linking from a blog post, or add my button (below)
4. Post your outfit on Instagram (if you use it) with the hashtag #iwillwearwhatilike – Monday’s the day to join in the IG fun
5. Visit some of the other links and share the love!
Copy and paste this HTML code into your blog post or side bar:
Do spread some blogging love around 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!
