Most fashion bloggers have a round up of their best outfits of the year around this time, but as always I like to do something a little different.
Currently I publish an annual bloopers and outtakes on 1st January (look out for it on Friday) and a seasonal round up of my best outfits every quarter. Instead of the year’s best outfits I thought it was time that I acknowledged and thanked my ever-patient husband/photographer (AKA my Instagram Husband) by showcasing his wonderful photography in a round up of his best photographic moments of 2015.
So I think this will be an annual thing, and I hope it gives you a little inspiration in the photography department for a change, not just the sartorial one. I’m always on the lookout for new and different ways to style and shoot outfit posts – I have a Pinterest board dedicated to blog photography ideas which I can recommend as a way to gather inspiration and up your photography game.
I THOUGHT IT WAS TIME THAT I ACKNOWLEDGED AND THANKED MY EVER-PATIENT HUSBAND/PHOTOGRAPHER BY SHOWCASING HIS WONDERFUL PHOTOGRAPHY.
The #iwillwearwhatilike link up is still on today – no break for Christmas – but there’s no theme so link up anything and everything you’ve been wearing (scroll down for the details). Meantime, I hope you enjoy the blog’s best photos of the year, and to Mr. Summers: Thank you with all my heart, I don’t know what I’d do without you. You’re the best :))
Which of the photos are your favourites? Tell me in the comments or tweet me

Thank you for joining the #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!
THE OPTIONAL THEME FOR 4 JANUARY IS BLING
(a chance to show off your Christmas and New Year’s outfits!)
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. Please remember this is only for posts of what you’ve been wearing, not links to giveaways or anything else
4. Include a link back to this post if you’re linking from a blog post, or add my button (below)
5. Post your outfit on Instagram (if you use it) with the hashtag #iwillwearwhatilike – Monday’s the day to join in the IG fun
6. 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!
