The #iwillwearwhatilike link up is now live – scroll to the bottom of the post for details!
This week’s optional theme is pink as this Friday (23rd October) is Wear it Pink Day to raise awareness for breast cancer. I’ll be wearing pink – kind of easy for me as I’ve been known to wear head-to-toe pink before – I hope you’ll join me 🙂
I’ve featured the pink and white striped vintage DVF jumpsuit I wore in Santorini for today’s link up: A little more subtle than all pink, but I hadn’t worn this jumpsuit in the UK this summer (blame the weather) and it suited the beautiful scenery in Santorini to a “t”. I’ll let the photos do all the talking about the town we explored (Pyrgos) – I couldn’t possibly do it justice in words.
That leaves me to mention the gorgeous red leather sandals I bought while on holiday (they went so well with the jumpsuit), the fringed white crossbody bag that made a perfect holiday addition (and so much better than my black one) and the beautiful ring that the husband bought for me. It has olive leaves on it, and as he bought me a ring on holiday last year in Cornwall I suggested to him that it becomes a tradition every time we go on holiday.
Tell me: Are there any souvenirs that you always have to buy on holiday? I always have to get a fridge magnet, a tea towel and a pack of playing cards. And now the aforementioned ring, of course…!

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!
My favourite MAXIS from last week’s link up:
** The optional theme for 26th October is HATS **
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 – as many as 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 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!
P.S. I last wore the jumpsuit here in 2014 – that was on holiday too, funnily enough…!
