Pretty or not: shaggy cardigan, camo shirt, vegan leather leggings, and lace-up heels

Don’t you agree that the phrase “I will wear what I like” is the perfect mantra for personal style aficionadas (and aficionados!) dear readers?!

After taking exception to a journalist’s insistence that women over a certain age should no longer wear things like leopard print and oversized sunglasses (huh?) my friend Catherine of Not Dressed As Lamb responded with an #iwillwearwhatilike campaign on Instagram…and a weekly blog linkup devoted to exactly that theme!!

We might not all agree about what’s considered attractive when it comes to our wardrobe choices – I bet I get some eye rolls when I’m wearing this shaggy Free People cardi! – but “pretty” isn’t always what it’s about; real personal style is a means of creative self-expression through fashion choices – and it should never be hampered by age or trends…or even gender, for that matter!!

So if you haven’t taken part in the “I will wear what I like” linkup before, why not take a moment now to tap that button you see in my sidebar; as you can probably guess, all ages and style choices are more than welcome!!  😉
