60’s Mod Flower Power & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!
July 23, 2015
Hi Dolls! Did you notice my new blog look? I decided to go for something more simple and chic! What do you think? Still making a few tweaks here and there.
Now on to the fashion talk of the day …
I love that mod 60’s look, do you? But a lot of it isn’t too flattering to my body shape. I mean, hello, my thighs haven’t been mini skirt friendly for a decade and sheath dresses are hard for pear shapes to pull off. So whenever I see a cool vintage 60’s looking top that will work on me, I go crazy for it.
A bold yellow, orange and green flower? Polyester sleeveless with a zipper in back? 60s perfection! I have it hanging right next to this in my closet!
I wore it to coffee with this fabulous friend …
Kim and I have been friends for longer than either of us care to admit to being alive. Check out her cool lifestyle, fashion & travel blog, Northern California Style.

Your blog design looks great and so does that fun top! Thanks for the link up!

Dawn the blog looks terrific! I love your clean design! Thank so much for the shout out. You are very sweet. I think we have been friends now almost 27 years!! It was fun to catch up and I hope we do it again soon. xo Kim
I'll have to dig out some old pics of us one day to post! Love ya, Chick! OXOX
Wow, this blog changed a lot. I like this design. Good job! And back to your outfit. I am happy that 60s are back. Very nice and comfy outfit. And I adore your bag.o)
Thanks so much, Anna. I just wanted something new and simple! I'm in a cleaning out the old mood!
Love the graphic top and love the new blog look Dawn Lucy 🙂 It's a nice clean look that makes the pictures the center pieces of attraction. I've been looking at templates a lot myself lately, but haven't decided yet upon one, there's always something that isn't quite how I want it.
Have a nice weekend!

Thanks, Alex. I was just in the mood for simple and fresh! Maybe it's time to clean out my closet too! 🙂
I love your new blog design — so chic and light. Well done! I also love your vintage top. I started tailoring a favourite vintage dress of mine just last night, to make it fit me better. I can't wait to wear it again — I only have to rehem it today, and it's good to go. Look for it on the blog next week! As always, thanks for hosting the link up.

Love the new blog format, a lot of times simple is the best way to go. I also love your look, everything looks great from your adorable tshirt to the sandals which I love and the great bag, fab look Dawn!
Thanks so much, Nora! 🙂
Great new format. I'm a newby, so wasn't attached to the old format, but I love not having to scroll down to see the post. Also, just love your rather playful attitude towards fashion. Keep up the good work — hope it's as enjoyable to make as it is to read 🙂 !
What a super sweet comment! Thanks so much! Yes, I have a lot of fun with my fashion and blogging! I'm so happy that translates to my readers! 🙂

Love this t-shirt and dying over that bag. I really love how streamlined your blog is now. Looks great!
Thanks Katherine! You're a doll! OXOX
First of all I love the new elegant, clean, modern look of the blog. Do you recommend the designer? I am shopping for a blog design myself.
Secondly, I love that fun rose tank. It is beautiful. And Alex's Maxi Dress from last week was lovely, I agree.

Is it oversized?! haha …. I need a big bag for all my junk! 😉
As you know, dearest Dawn, I adore adding a touch of sixties-inspired fabulousness to my own outfits every once in a while…and you've made another terrific find with this pretty "flower power" top!! So chic paired with your flattering, dark wash skinnies and those studded gladiator sandals!! P.S. The sleek new blog look gets an A+ from me…you're obviously putting your summer holidays to very good use!! ;D
Aww thanks, Monika. So glad you like the new look! OXOX
Love the look and the green and yellow is such a fun print on you. Happy weekend!
Thanks Jess! 🙂
Very sleek design with the blog. Love it. And yay, for gladiator style sandals! I'm did a post this week wearing hot pink ones. Gee, we're so in sync Dawn! The whole look is great – that tricky balance of fun, casual yet stylish. I especially like the roll up hem on the jeans just so we can see those great sandals a little more and is another little eye-catching details.
Can't wait to check out your hot pink gladiators! Thanks so much for the sweet and thoughtful comment! OXOX
Love that tee!! And it is perfect with your denim and sandals!! Great look! Thanks for the link up and for joining us today too! Susan
