Flares & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

August 13, 2015

Happy Friday … and whew, does this teacher ever need some time to catch up on …. everything.  Yes, our school is back is session already.  So early, right? 


Flares – KUT Madeline Trouser Jeans 
(TIP: Length is super important when it come to flares. Make sure to pick your length based on the type of shoes you plan to wear with them.)

Top – Anne Taylor

Cardigan – Roxy

Straw bag – old (Burlington)

Necklace – Urban Gems via Rocksbox 
(Read about Rocksbox here.)
(Use my code FASHIONSHOULDBEFUNXOXO to get a free month of Rocksbox!)

(Today I couldn’t find anything exactly so all items are similar options.)

Two other beauties were rocking their flares last week, so I decided to stick with the theme and feature them. 

Here’s Amy Ann of Straight A Style …
And here’s Anett of Tall Girl’s Fashion …

Don’t they both look long, lean, and stunning in flared denim?!!

Fellow bloggers, time to link up and link back. Also if you could try to visit at least two other links that would be awesome! I’m going to try to get by to visit everyone as usual, but if I don’t quite make it, I hope you’ll give this tired teacher a “hall pass” this week.

All other readers, please check out all these fabulous ladies and the outfits they’re sharing with us this week!

    You look so fantastic in those flares Dawn Lucy! Amy Ann look fabulous too and I was thrilled to see Anett featured as she is one of my favorite "tall" bloggers. I'm thinking I need to get me some flares for fall!

    Oh, I love flared jeans too! Don't they create such a flattering silhouette? Perfect with your long cardigan.
    Schoolbreaks in Germany depend on the state you are living, in Bavaria summer holidays only started 2 weeks ago and will last until mid September. My children are already at university and we are still enjoying time together!

    Thank you sooo much for featuring my outfit, Dawn Lucy! You look great in yours, too — les a mile long. We should make a Tall Women Love Flares club, as the cut is so flattering on us! 😉

    You don't need to tell ME about needing catch-up time, dearest Dawn…I haven't found the opportunity to visit virtually ANY of my blogging friends for weeks now!! 🙁 I'm so sorry to hear that your summer holiday is already over – it always flew by when we were kids, too, didn't it? – but I'm giving you an A++ for this "groovy" back-to-school combination of flares (love the extra-wide hem!) and fringe!! And those platform clogs are the best finishing touch ever!! XOXO

    I am pretty sure that you could not be any cooler, Dawn! Love this….so boho/hippie/smokin' hot! We don't go back until August 27th…you are back early. Although it seems like PA schools go back later than almost everywhere else.

    Oh man, it's been so long since I've worn flares! They were my go to jeans in high school. Unfortunately, I was too tall and never could find the right length so it always looked like I was getting ready for a flood! I think it's kind of scarred me and I haven't tried on a pair since…haha. But they look great on you and are definitely on trend now!
