Happy December + Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

December 1, 2016

Hey Dolls … can you even believe that it’s December already?


This look that I’m sharing is a from a coffee date with my buddy Kim of Northern California Style last week.

It’s always so nice to catch up with an old friend over a cup of coffee, isn’t it? And when that old friend is a blogger too, you can always count on some pics!

I bought this Topshop long vest for my New York fashion week trip. I love it and thought I would wear it more than I do.  But when I remember to wear it, I love it!







Vest – Topshop, Sweater – Nordstrom Rack, Jeans – KUT from the Kloth, boots – Adrienne Vittadini, sunglasses – Illesteva, bag – London Fog.




One fav from last week’s linky ….

Monika of Style is my Pudding looks so incredibly chic and cool!


How are all my dolls doing this week? Do you feel ready for the holidays? To be honest, I don’t at all.  But I AM excited about them!  I think we’ll start decorating this weekend.  It’s always fun to start seeing lights and decorations popping up around the neighborhood!

Have a fun & fashionable weekend!  And hey, I would love it if you would sign up for my newsletter!

    I know—it’s crazy that it’s the end of the year—and my birthday month!!
    I love my long vests—but i totally know what you mean. It’s not the first thing I reach for when I’m getting dressed. Yours is such a great piece though—you definitely have to wear it more!!

    Dawn Lucy that sleeveless vest is soooo chic – I have my eye on a burgundy one but right now it’s so cold I need sleeves!! ?

    And no, I can’t believe it’s December. It’s just frightening how quickly the year has gone…!

    Thank you for hosting, much love from the ch-ch-chilly UK

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Happy December to you, too, dearest Dawn…and a great big huge THANK YOU for featuring me as your fave from last week’s Fun Fashion Friday linkup!! XOXO Absolutely loving this sleeveless-coat-slash-long-vest that you snagged from Topshop; I’m afraid the season for sleeveless anything has passed here in Vancouver for now (sigh!)…so I’m happy I can live vicariously through you and enjoy these outdoor patio photos care of sunny California!! P.S. Kim could be your sister from the looks of that cute selfie!! 😉

    You look incredibly funky and fresh and fine, Dawn 🙂 I’m especially loving how one sleeve is white, the other black.
