No theme for this week’s #iwillwearwhatilike – I’ll be hosting the 30-40+ Blogger Meet in London when this post goes live so feel free to add anything and everything you’ve been wearing,
old posts or new (no link ups or giveaways though please, the linky is called #iwillwearwhatilike, after all)!
This was a simple but (I thought) elegant outfit worn on one of the warmer days we had recently. I wore the asymmetric midi skirt once before on the blog – in the autumn with boots and a peach jacket – and thought it was about time it was dug out and styled in another way. Luckily this skirt isn’t too office-like thanks to the hem line, though it’s not a style I’d recommend on a windy day… Cue much holding down of that wrap front!

I wanted to keep the overall look light and fresh, so instead of a blouse (which would have made it look too formal), I went with a classic white tee, this one being from white t-shirt specialists Yunion T. It’s my second t-shirt from this start-up brand and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed if you want a high quality white tee that keeps its shape and isn’t thin. (Someone I know on Twitter bought one on my recommendation and she couldn’t praise it highly enough either.) They sell four classic styles of white t-shirt and that’s it, so of course they’re bound to have perfected this wardrobe essential.
SHOP THE LOOK:
As I can’t help myself where colour is concerned, I of course had to add some colour – a ready-twisted headscarf from Zara, coloured mirrored sunglasses and bold Wolf & Moon earrings did all that for me. Easy and comfortable, but ladylike and a step up from jeans.
So do add your outfits to this week’s link up (scroll down for details) – you may be featured next week if I love what you’re wearing (please don’t forget to add a link back to Not Dressed As Lamb in your post)!

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!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will 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!
