I’m still loving summer and all the floaty, sheer and pretty clothes that come with it. This weekend I wore one of my favourite “summer only” tops that really only comes out when it’s lovely weather… it provides no warmth and you can’t wear anything over the top of it like a sweater or coat – strictly for summer days, this one.
Today’s link up is finally here, which is a MIRACLE considering our WiFi has been seeeeeriously slow for several days now. Every page I open takes an eon to load – it’s reminding me of the days of dial up with all those pinging and beeping noises (remember them?!) you used to get while it was loading.
So apologies for my tardiness, but I had to take several breaks throughout the day to avoid throwing the monitor out the window (of course taking breaks slowed me up even more)…!
REMEMBER WHEN MINT WAS THE COLOUR TO WEAR?
Anyway, the outfit!
The top is really kind of fabulous as the rose design is printed in the same place on both layers so you get this lovely 3-D effect. I’ve looked for alternative sheer white tops for you (with and without embroidery/designs) and featured them at the end of my outfit images. There are actually a lot of super pretty tops out there right now so do check them out.
I still love my mint trousers/chinos from Marks & Spencer that are also a few years old – remember when mint was THE colour to wear? I’ve tried to find similar trousers online as an alternative but I tell you, no one makes mint anything anymore… It’s a shame as it’s such a nice colour for spring and summer. Sea green and pale green was the nearest I could find.
SHOP THE LOOK:
What I have realised from this outfit is the new colour combo I absolutely love: White, mint and tangerine orange – so yummy and fruity and summery! The new aviator sunglasses are going with everything at the moment and add colour to my face… who needs bronzer when you’ve got these?!

And a note about Riley… It’s just too difficult to take pictures without him wandering into shot half the time. So rather than trying to keep him out we’re just going with the Riley flow – I think he was born for this to be honest. That’s what happens when you get a dog who is the epitome of relaxed…!
So do add your outfits to this week’s link up – and if you’ve added a link to here or my button to your post you may be featured next week!

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!
