Pink Stripe Vintage Jumpsuit in Santorini #iwillwearwhatilike

Vintage DVF pink and white striped jumpsuit | Location: Santorini
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 πŸ™‚

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.

Manipulative, me…?!

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…!

(Don’t forget to link up all your outfits and accessories below – especially if you’ve been wearing pink!)

#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!

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

    Love this fresh, casual look, Catherine! The stripes against that glorious background are amazing!

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:40 pm

      Aww Mary how nice of you to say, thank you!!

      Carmen thank you so much – it's nice to e-meet you! Hope to see you again :))

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:38 pm

      Thanks Kirsten! Jewellery is great because it doesn't weigh very much, so it means we can buy as much as we like (well, that's what I tell the husband πŸ˜‰

  4. 21 October 2015 / 9:49 pm

    My goodness, lady, you look so cosmopolitan! I hope you're enjoying yourself πŸ™‚


    • 27 October 2015 / 3:37 pm

      hehe that's a great compliment, Alicia – thank you!

      Aww Lynda that's sweet of you, thank you x

    I love this look, looks summery and perfect for your locale! I love that it is classic and vintage DVF!Wow, the pictures look amazing, I wouldnt mind being there myself! Love the details, the ring is very pretty.
    Thanks for hosting as I always wear what I like!

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:36 pm

      Jess thank you!!!!! It was so dreamy, I'd to be back there right now πŸ™‚

  7. 20 October 2015 / 1:24 pm

    As a lover of vintage, I adore your jumpsuit. Thanks for hosting, Catherine. I love the concept of wearing what makes us happy at any given time in our life.

  8. 20 October 2015 / 10:06 am

    Yay! The #iwillwearwhatilike link up! I love Mondays!!

    Catherine, I just realized something rather tragic: I don't wear much pink. I can think of one post–and it's just because I used a pink clutch. This is so interesting to me; I do look good in pink. What makes one wear it? I know you do….now I'm just wondering why I don't. It's a rather silly question, but because of this post, it's now on my mind. I'll be getting back to you on that one!

    Anyway, this jumsuit is truly ADORBS! Love it!!

    Thanks for linking up to my Style Story!

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:35 pm

      Well at least it's a great excuse for going shopping, eh Ann…?!!!! Thank you my lovely, best of luck with your own link up! x

  9. 20 October 2015 / 8:08 am

    oo how lovely is that ring? And nice to see the fab DVF jumpsuit again! It certainly looks right at home in those amazing surroundings. I tend to buy a few cheesy and tacky items on hols (Spanish fan and shawl!), and then perhaps something related to food (small cookbook, local honey) and finally my husband and I might choose a poster or photograph for our home – we got a beautiful poster in Seville on honeymoon for our bedroom. Thanks for hosting the linkup xx

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:34 pm

      I'm all for tacky, Porcelina – like the magnet and teatowel…!! hehe thanks sweetie x

  10. 20 October 2015 / 6:57 am

    beautiful pictures! love the jumpsuit!

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:33 pm

      I think it's going to be my go-to holiday piece, Alice! Thank you x

  11. 19 October 2015 / 10:43 pm

    Fantastic photos and I adore the jumpsuit. My link went a bit wrong this week! Wanted a pic of me wearing pink but connected to wrong post! Hey ho live and learn huh? Thank you for hosting

      Aww thanks Laurie! You are able to delete your link up – if you hover over your thumbnail you'll see a trash can icon. Delete it and start again! x

  12. 19 October 2015 / 10:33 pm

    What a great tradition Catherine! Um… maybe I should twist TallBrownFox's arm as he's bought me two rings on holiday in the past – a pearl one on our honeymoon in Oz and another one in France.
    Your jumpsuit was the perfect choice. Uncomplicated, relaxed and not overdone. And it's far from being pj territory.

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:32 pm

      Hey, you've unknowingly started a tradition, Jacqueline…! ;)) Thank you my lovely x

  13. 19 October 2015 / 9:37 pm

    Thanks for the linkup, Catherine! You look fantastic in your striped jumpsuit and compliments on your husband wrangling. Heh. I had fun with my first tutu linkup but a very pink outfit the post before so I put up both. And I joined in your Instagram too. So many beautiful women here.

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:26 pm

      Thanks Melanie for linking up and the kind words!!! x

  14. 19 October 2015 / 9:35 pm

    What great photos and I LOVE that ring.

    This outfit is perfect for the setting.

    When on holiday I try to only buy practical souvenirs which normally means clothing. (Not that I'm complaining!) Otherwise photos and memories are what I bring back.


    • 27 October 2015 / 3:25 pm

      Thanks Suzanne – I don't usually buy clothes as they weigh too much to take back… I'm not a light packer!!! πŸ˜‰

  15. 19 October 2015 / 7:25 pm

    Great jumpsuit! And wonderful Santorini photos!

    I like the idea of buying a ring on vacation! I usually try to buy something to wear (often scarves), a bag, or jewelry.

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:24 pm

      I think anything to wear is a great idea, Andrea…! Thanks hun x

  16. 19 October 2015 / 5:29 pm

    Catherine, I love love love this jumpsuit, it looks so light and I love the stripes. The Panama hat looks perfect with it. We've made it our habit to buy photos or paintings on holidays and having them framed afterwards. One time we even had them framed at once on a holiday in Wales, it's such a great memory. Love, Kirsten xx

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:24 pm

      That's a great thing to do, Kirsten – love that idea! Thank you sweetie x

  17. 19 October 2015 / 3:30 pm

    I think this might be my all time favourite outfit of yours to date Catherine. The way it works with the Santorini backdrop is sleek & sharp, the photos are amazing! Well done to the Mr too πŸ˜‰

    • 27 October 2015 / 3:23 pm

      oh gosh really, Michelle?!! thank you!!!!!!!

  18. 19 October 2015 / 3:26 pm

    Catherine, the red sandals and fedora are simply smashing! Thank you, so much, for featuring my maxi dress from last week…what a treat!


    • 27 October 2015 / 3:23 pm

      It was my pleasure, Shellie – and thank you! x

  19. 19 October 2015 / 2:40 pm

    LOVE this outfit, Catherine. Every piece just falls into place and it truly is perfect for Santorini. Thank you for hosting the link up!


    • 19 October 2015 / 9:24 pm

      Aww it's my pleasure, Janise – and thank you for the lovely comments!!

  20. 19 October 2015 / 2:40 pm

    I love this jumpsuit on you. And manipulative? Hmmm…. I would say clever LOL.
    I love buying clothes abroad.

    • 19 October 2015 / 9:22 pm

      Yes you're right, Greetje – clever is what I is!!! Thank you sweetie x

  21. 19 October 2015 / 2:35 pm

    You are as cute as a (stripy) button in this, Catherine.
    And to whoever said that jumpsuits were ' shapeless' and gave women the 'baggy bum effect', killing all signs of a figure, should check out your 'rear view' shot….hello fabulous curves!
    What a tricky item to pull off! It could have easily ended up in Pj territory. Over thinking this would have ruined the look.
    I really like the way you did not go down the usual jumpsuit route of "dressing it up with heels"…so refreshing to just go all out casual (but feminine) comfort.
    It looks so cool and perfect for the heat.
    As for your ring…great tradition (must keep that one going).
    Persuasive is the word you are looking for, definitely not manipulative…nope definitely not!!! ;oP
    Fake Fabulous

    • 19 October 2015 / 9:21 pm

      Samantha I *always* fear that this jumpsuit looks like pyjamas!! I've pondered over dyeing it so that it's more of a solid colour, but I think it would lose some of its charm. And thank you for the compliment about the rear view… I'm blushing now!! Though I do think the photo was taken at a split second when I was in a flattering position for me buns, if you see what I mean…!!

      Thank you for your lovely comments, I look forward to checking out your links! C x

  22. 19 October 2015 / 2:34 pm

    You look so cool, comfortable, and stylish in this outfit. What a great place to take fashion photos! A photographers dream! Love your red sandals!

    • 19 October 2015 / 9:18 pm

      You're absolutely right about it being a photographer's dream, Amy!! Thanks so much sweetie, thanks for linking up too x

  23. 19 October 2015 / 2:32 pm

    Beautiful romper and great place πŸ™‚

  24. 19 October 2015 / 2:30 pm

    Your outfit matches the scenery perfectly, with all that white.

    • 19 October 2015 / 9:17 pm

      If only I could do all my outfit posts there, Tiina…! Thank you sweetie x

    • 19 October 2015 / 9:16 pm

      Aww Jaymie thank you, and for linking up too! x

  25. 19 October 2015 / 2:08 pm

    Such a joy.
    Glad to join you once more
