Welcome to the #iwillwearwhatilike link up: This week is all about faux fur! It’s the perfect texture to ‘winterise’ (my word) any outfit. This faux fur collar (similar) and faux fur bag are two of the accessories I always look forward to wearing once I’ve finally accepted that summer is over. It always takes me a while, though as I still haven’t yet put away my bikinis and shorts for the winter I may still be in denial…!
THIS FAUX FUR COLLAR AND FAUX FUR BAG ARE TWO OF THE ACCESSORIES I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO WEARING ONCE I’VE FINALLY ACCEPTED THAT SUMMER IS OVER.
Our temperatures in the UK are a little up and down at the moment, so we’re having the occasional mild day that allows for bare ankles still. I’ve mentioned in the past that I tend to be able to cope with bare ankles for much longer than I can cope without gloves, or a scarf. A black biker jacket and loose check trousers with the faux fur make a great weekend shopping outfit.
As always the theme for the link up is optional (scroll down for all the details) – though I’m looking forward to seeing some great faux fur this week, I have my fingers crossed for some colourful versions!
Do you hit the faux fur when the temperatures drop? Let me know 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!
