Another Monday, another #iwillwearwhatilike link up: This week is all about leather and/or suede! Hopefully this should be an easy one for this time of year, but I’m hoping to see some leather trousers or maybe a suede coat or two. Make it a good one to get featured next week – but as always the theme is optional so scroll down for the how-to!
I actually wore this outfit about a month ago and my scheduling has got a bit mixed up with all those holiday outfits I posted. I’d just had my hair lopped off and coloured rose gold (that very day) so I was feeling a bit sassy with my new shorter hair! I’m used to it now and am so glad I chopped it off – it really needed it and it’s so much easier to look after now.
My contribution to this week’s theme are these grey booties from Naturalizer which are made of both leather and suede. I’m really getting into grey as an alternative neutral to black this autumn: It’s softer and easier to style than black sometimes. Plus who knew that it would look so good with a pair of mid wash boyfriend jeans?
I’M REALLY GETTING INTO GREY AS AN ALTERNATIVE NEUTRAL TO BLACK THIS AUTUMN: IT’S SOFTER AND EASIER TO STYLE THAN BLACK SOMETIMES.
Thanks so much for linking up – I hope you enjoyed the Wearing My Wedding Dress challenge last week! I was so impressed by how many of you lovely ladies got your dresses/outfits out and photographed them for the link up. It was a fun challenge (and don’t forget to scroll down to see my faves from the link up)!
What do you think of my shorter hair – and what is your neutral of choice at the moment? Let me know in the comments or tweet me

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 WEARING MY WEDDING DRESS outfits from last week’s link up – these fabulous ladies put on their wedding dresses and posted pictures for us anything up to 40 years after the event…!
THE OPTIONAL THEME FOR 23RD NOVEMBER IS BOLD PATTERN
