It’s already time for my second monthly celebration of women who wear what they like… are you ready for some style overload?
I’m so glad I started this monthly series to share other women’s style with you. I’m inspired on a daily basis by all the bloggers I follow, and as so many of my readers say they’re discovering new [to them] blogs every time I feature others I’m happy to continue doing it. It also forces me to consider my own style, and what I can do to change it up a bit, and try things a bit differently next time.
2018 may be drawing to a close but for these women style doesn’t stop with the end of the year…!
Just to explain a little about this feature, in case you missed it last month:
Each month I look at all the thumbnails on my weekly #iwillwearwhatilike link ups and pick my favourites to feature here. I also add three outfits from elsewhere in the blogosphere that have inspired me (a blogger who didn’t link up but I wish had; the blogger with the most inspirational photo shoot, and the blogger with the most jaw-dropping outfit). Of course this is all purely subjective, but it’s my blog and I’ll cry if I want to feature whomsoever I please!
These women dress however they like. They dress to express their personality and have an incredible sense of style, whether that’s classic, on trend, boho, preppy, glam, granny chic, etc. There are NO STYLE RULES. No one has to be ‘trendy’, or wearing the latest styles to be featured. No one has to have that typical LIKEtoKNOWit/Instagram style. No one has to be a particular age. No one has to be a particular shape or size. I’ll simply feature women that have impressed me AND my readers, those that had a high number of clicks on their link, etc.
I’m still looking for more women to join the link up: although I LOVE the fact that there are those that link up regularly, we need more diversity. Please do send a link to this post to anyone you think has great style and is willing to link up on a Tuesday to #iwillwearwhatilike for a chance to be featured in this monthly feature post!
A note about getting yourself featured…
It’s well known there are plenty of bloggers who do the classic “dump links and run” thing. I won’t be showcasing the ones that do that. I know who they are, and they won’t get themselves featured if they give nothing back. It’s only fair – if you link up – that you give a little back to the community and comment on my post and a few others to show your support. I also know the ones that constantly link up NON-outfit posts, despite me saying in the post that it’s called #iwillwearwhatilike. The bloggers that do this get their thumbnails deleted (and blocked if they KEEP doing it), so if it’s not a picture of YOU wearing something, it’ll disappear. That’s why I started the extra #ShareAllLinkUp on a Thursday where anything can be shared… it doesn’t deter the Dump ‘n Runners, however! Lecture over.
Without further ado, let’s get straight onto these fabulous women…
9 Fabulous Women Who Wear What They Like
Samantha is an expert at androgynous looks and I adore this check coat with a roll neck and wide leg trousers. Take note of all her clever finishing touches, from the pom pom gloves to the lightning brooch.
As wonderfully crazy and avant-garde as ever, Melanie outshines herself in a stunning black and white print with a flash of orange lining and touches of boho from the scarf and bag. An inspired mix.
I’m so glad Carelia finally joined the link up! Her outfit is deceptively monochrome – if you look closely you’ll see everything (apart from the gorgeous black clutch) is in different shades of red and burgundy. SO chic.
A wonderfully eclectic outfit that I love from Shelbee: I’d never have thought to put aubergine, leopard print, black and red together but it works beautifully.
A cheetah coat to die for (but of course no animals did #fauxfur), exquisite black bow heels and a veiled beret. Far, far, too chic an outfit from the ever-glam Lisa.
Two fabulous ways to wear a pair of checked trousers from Darlene… how fresh and simple is the first outfit with the plain white tee and sneakers?

So those were the bloggers that linked up to #iwillwearwhatilike – now I want to share some bloggers who weren’t part of the link up, but whose outfits made me look twice. Each month I’ll pick one for each of these three categories…
The blogger that didn’t link up (but I wish she had…)
Georgette is a blogger who loves colour as much as I do: I’m now desperate to put together a camel, emerald green and leopard print look after seeing this outfit. I’d LOVE it if she linked up her gorgeous outfits every week to inspire my readers.
The blogger with the most inspirational photoshoot
I nearly died when I saw these photos – rainbow stripes on rainbow stripes?! Ughh my heart can’t take it, it’s far too fabulous. This post features another photo shoot from Louise that’s also worth checking out: a sort of Sixties-inspired futuristic outer space thing. Photos and locations to die for, in other words.
The blogger with the most jaw-dropping outfit
A red, strapless, tiered and pleated-beyond-belief dress. All topped off with that beautiful mustard yellow turban and a matching red lip. Absolutely incredible – I have a huge blogger crush on Paola (who knocks it out the park every time).
I hope you enjoyed this second post of this new monthly series; remember, if you don’t want to miss any more then make sure you sign up for email updates!
