Summer really is the time to break out the colour even if you’re more of a neutrals kind of person – hence this week’s #iwillwearwhatilike theme, a pop of colour!
After my Grace Kelly-style wedding guest outfit last week I’ve done my usual trick of switching from super-glam to super casual in one fell swoop… Grey dungarees this week. The pop of colour comes courtesy of both a red Breton stripe top (I have so many Breton tops in all different colours and variations I’ve lost count) and my 2016 bag favourite: The Hobbs Adlington orange tote. This bag has gone with so many outfits this season and last, I have a feeling it’s going to be my go-to for a while yet.
COLOUR – EVEN IN SMALL AMOUNTS LIKE THIS – IS SUCH A GREAT WAY TO LIFT AN OUTFIT. I DO FAVOUR NEUTRALS NOW AND THEN, BUT THE TEMPTATION TO ADD SOMETHING BRIGHT WILL NEVER LEAVE ME.
Colour – even in small amounts like this – is such a great way to lift an outfit. I do favour neutrals now and then, but the temptation to add something bright will never leave me. A brightly coloured accessory – a bag, scarf or pair of shoes – is the easiest way to ease yourself into wearing more colour.
So leave that black tote on the shelf and go for the red or yellow instead… You’ll not regret it!
Finally: Must mention these gorrrrrrgeous embellished slip-on trainers by Miss KG (Kurt Geiger). I think the influence of my good friend The Sequinist is rubbing off on me – I just have to have everything sparkly right now. They’re super-comfy and such a pretty choice for a casual summer shoe.
Do add your outfits to this week’s link up (scroll down for details) you may be featured next week if you’ve linked up something with a pop of colour 🙂

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!
THE OPTIONAL THEME FOR 27 JUNE IS SUMMER DRESSES
