There’s no theme this week for the #iwillwearwhatilike link up – basically anything goes as it’s Easter Monday! We’re still experiencing pretty cold, damp weather in the UK (Storm Katie is blowing a hooley as I write this) so unfortunately I’m not exactly spring-like in this outfit… My leopard coat and flared jeans are reigning supreme. Hope you’ve had a fabulous Easter weekend and not gorged too much on chocolate bunnies 😉
I’ve worn blush pink with this leopard coat before, and it’s a really nice combination I think – something about the contrast of wild animal print and the softest of pinks appeals to me. The flared jeans and white Adidas Stan Smiths are so comfy I think I may be hard pressed to wear anything else till this weather cheers up a bit – could someone please tell Mother Nature to turn the thermostat up a bit…?!

I wore this outfit for an early morning in the cold watching (and cheering on) my sister and niece run a local 10k race – I would normally have been running it myself but I haven’t done enough running post-injury to be able to run a 10k… My fitness levels just aren’t quite there yet. You can read up on my back to fitness progress with my #notlambFIT series: This weekend I posted some great healthy breakfast recipes (all of them wheat-free and high in protein) that I’m sure you’ll love!
And of course do add your outfits to this week’s link up – no theme so everyone has an equal chance of being featured next week (only if you’ve added a link or my button though of course)!
WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN WEARING AND LINKING UP THIS WEEK? TELL ME BELOW IN THE COMMENTS, OR TAKE IT TO TWITTER @NOTLAMB!

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!
This is for linking up what you’ve been wearing (or would like to wear) only. I like to keep it all looking tidy because I’m a bit of a neat-freak, so non-outfit links will be removed – it’s only fair to others linking up!
THE OPTIONAL THEME FOR 4 APRIL IS YELLOW
(What could be more appropriate for spring?)

5. Please do not link up anything other than outfits, shoes, accessories or make-up – non-outfit links will be removed. This link up is for linking up what you’ve been wearing (or would like to wear) only
