So throughout the month of August the fabulous Catherine Summers from the fashion/style blog Not Dressed As Lamb challenged the ridiculous rules from an online article about what women really shouldn’t wear once over the age of 30. Every day Catherine set us all on challenging these rules and turning them on their head. Given that a lot of women over the age of 30, 40, 50, 60 and beyond wear mini skirts and look great in them (if you’ve got it flaunt it!) and that leopard print is a staple ingredient of many women’s wardrobes (see my blog post Leopard Print is the New Neutral) we all used the hashtag #iwillwearwhatilike and posted pics from our wardrobes challenging these ‘so called fashion rules’.
Catherine is now continuing this as a fun link up with a weekly themed #iwillwearwhatilike challenge. This week’s theme is #colour.
I have posted the following Instagram image as a summary of some of the colour in my wardrobe. I have to admit that I am a neutrals kind of girl. I like brown shades like camel, taupe, chocolate and also grey shades especially charcoal. I also wear a lot of navy as I think it complements most skin tones and is often more forgiving than black However, I am trying to embrace colour more and what I’m finding is that I veer towards shades of blue and red.
So here is a breakdown of those items I posted on the Instagram image. You can follow me on Instagram @stylebeginsat40
