Patterned Moto & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

January 21, 2016
Have you hit up any after Christmas sales, Dolls?  
I’m thrilled with this patterned moto jacket that I picked up at Express last week.  It’s chic, versatile, and stretchy … I love something that I can move around in.  For California, it’s pretty seasonless too.

I did some pattern mixing and added this Peter Pilotto for Target top.  I’ve had this crazy top for a couple of years now, but still love it.  Also wearing my new fab Prada sunnies via Ditto Endless Eyewear (you can read more here). I added my Royalty for Me skinny pants, classic pumps, and my “pop of red” London Fog bag. The unique necklace is from Chaos New York.

Don’t they all look amazing?

Enjoy the link up party and have a fab & fashionable weekend, Dolls!

    Of course the outfit is super stylish Dawn Lucy, but what I must comment on is the blue sky and sunshine! What a gorgeous day, no? There's something so crisp about winter sunshine and a blue sky!

    Thanks for offering us this link up. I hope your weekend ahead is filled with more blue skies! I know it will be filled with fashionable style. ;D

    Anything stretchy gets two thumbs up from me, dearest Dawn…I HATE to feel like I'm wearing a strait-jacket!! Your new Express moto earns bonus points from me for its cool black and white pattern…and I'm LOVING those "rock goddess" sunglasses, too!! XOXO

    • Reply dawnlucy January 23, 2016 at 12:39 pm

      I actually thought of you, Monika, when I wrote that about the stretchy fabric. We're both a bit claustrophobic, right? lol. OXOX

  • Reply Amy Johnson January 22, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    Yes, I got a lot of after Christmas sale items this year…far more than I need. Love your bag! I have a similar London Fog bag in my blog post today too!

    I received items from Christmas I am still wearing, I am wearing a tweed jacket Santa brought me today. I am shopping my closet until I decided to buy for Spring. I adore this jacket on you, the tweed and the shape look wonderful. Love the colors of the top and I Chaos necklace is pretty. I am a fan of silver.
    Enjoy your weekend friend!
