I’m really excited to be not only wearing sugary pastels (this week’s #iwillwearwhatilike theme) but to be wearing Winser London for the very first time.
Until a couple of months ago I hadn’t heard of this young brand before, but I’m officially in love with their quality and styling. It’s run by Kim Winser, herself a 40+ woman, who is obviously someone who understands what older women want from their wardrobes.
The key pieces I’m wearing – the pink cotton sweater and the jersey wide leg trousers – are so beautifully made and comfortable that I could probably wear them as loungewear. In fact I’ve worn the trousers to London and back, and anything that copes with a total of five hours on the train and doesn’t annoy me or make me uncomfortable is a winner in my eyes.
Disclosure: These pieces are PR samples from Winser London but I was not compensated for writing this post (click here for my full disclosure). All content is original, however, and opinions are my own and 100% honest.
The gorgeous pastel colours really make the outfit, but I wanted to add a little hit of bold so (unusually for me) I went with black: An embossed cross body bag from Zara and my trusty black cat eye sunglasses. My third pastel was the grey pointed toe heels from ASOS I first wore a couple of weeks ago – and who doesn’t want a fourth? The taupe flat cap adds a certain boyishness to a somewhat ladylike outfit, plus I’ve always been a hat girl. I have to thank Carrie Bradshaw for making flat caps acceptable…!
This is a very special post for me as I’m introducing for the very first time a blogger collaboration I’m very proud to be part of and the reason I’m wearing Winser London today – scroll down for all the details and to see what this new project is all about. Good times ahead!
And of course do add your outfits to this week’s link up and you may be featured next week if you’ve linked up pastels!

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!
Linking up? Please be a good sport and do the following…

No featured favourites this week I’m afraid as I’ve featured the Over 40 Collective instead! To get yourself featured next week, link up something following this week’s theme and make sure you’ve included a link back to Not Dressed As Lamb or my button in your post/sidebar.
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 FRIENDSHIPS SO DON’T MISS OUT!
