Poncho Fever & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

October 13, 2016

I’m crazy about the poncho trend.  What other piece of clothing looks so cool, feels so cozy, and … hey, let’s be honest … covers so much?!

How’s your October going so far, Dolls?  Have you decorated for Halloween? Planned a costume?  My husband created some very cool “ghosts” in our front yard!  Follow me on FB and IG to see a sneak peek. Have you had any fall weather? If so, I’m jealous!  Except for some cool mornings, it’s been pretty summery here in the Bay Area.  The forecast calls for rain this weekend though, so fingers crossed!  My fall clothes are dying to come out of the closet!!

So many fab fall outfits last week, Ladies! Thanks so much for linking up! One of my very favorites was Jessica of Jeans and a Teacup.  Such a cool casual look and a great message too: POSITIVE THOUGHTS ONLY!


As always, looking forward to seeing all your looks this week, my fashionistas!  Link up an Instagram post or blog post and share your style with us.

Also, I’m starting a new FASHION SHOULD BE FUN newsletter.  Get a weekly email with links to posts, sales alerts, coupon codes, fun peeks behind-the-scenes, and more opportunities to interact with with other!  No spam and  you can always unsubscribe if you don’t like it.  This is a separate list from the weekly link up reminder I send out.

    The poncho is such a Fall staple 🙂

  • Reply MonicaP October 13, 2016 at 3:33 pm

    I have yet to get a poncho .. I wore one when I was a girl and always loved it.

    I did minimal Halloween decorating .. but there are a few pumpkins around the house 🙂


  • Reply Sheela Goh October 13, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    I love me a good poncho, especially one that’s reversible. So perfect for days when I feel grumpy or bloated or just out of sorts. Like a security blanket, you know 🙂 and I’m so envious that you can wear one with a high neck!! You look mega chic and cool, Dawn xoxo


  • Reply Colleen @ 50 Days of No Grey October 13, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    Your outfit looks great. I love the idea of a poncho, but I’m on the shorter side and I haven’t found one yet that doesn’t make me look like I’m wearing an oversized blanket. I’ll keep looking…

  • Reply Adi October 13, 2016 at 4:27 pm

    I love it!! Those jeans and boots are just perfect!!

    Well I will definitely agree with you on this—covering up and still looking good is the recipe for success some days!!

    Great poncho and I love how you DIY’d an old pair of jeans to make it totally on trend with the high low hem.

    That is SUCH a lovely poncho! I have a couple of ponchos from last year, and I can’t wait to get them out again. You’ve styled yours so nicely; it really looks so autumnal. Hoping you get cooler weather soon! xx

    Dawn Lucy, ponchos are my favorite thing ever! You have to check out my paisley poncho (from Shelbee’s Shoppe) I posted on my IG last night!! You look amazing in this poncho, jeans, boots combo. A girl after my own sartorial heart! Ponchos and Michal Golan jewelry all the way!!!!! Have a fab weekend.

    Can’t have a better fall wardrobe piece than a grey poncho. Love that you can throw it on over anything. Great look Dawn!!! Thank you for hosting.

    Happy Friday!

    Ha-ha, I love your opening paragraph! I wore a poncho yesterday and I thought the same thing…it covers everything up! Time to eat! Anyway, love yours and how you styled it!

  • Reply Ada October 14, 2016 at 6:53 am

    You did such a great job raw-heming those jeans first of all, WOW! I love that poncho. Would love to add a sweater like that soon. This entire outfit is polished and with a little edge!

    Do come by and join my latest linkup, beautiful! Thanks and enjoy the weekend!


  • Reply Cheryl Tucker October 14, 2016 at 7:01 am

    Wow! Everyone is looking great in this week’s link up! Thanks for hosting! Peace! Cheryl

  • Reply Monika Faulkner October 14, 2016 at 7:07 am

    You’ve found the perfect balance of cool and cozy, dearest Dawn!! I don’t own an actual poncho (yet!) but I do have a poncho-esque sweater that I’ll be featuring on my blog in the next few weeks…since fall has most definitely arrived here in Vancouver!! In fact, we’ve been on “storm watch” for the past couple of days – no snow, but lots and lots of rain and wind!! Maybe I should consider investing in a rain poncho and rubber boots…but I like your woolly version with the biker-inspired boots sooo much better!! XOXO


  • Reply Jessica October 14, 2016 at 9:35 am

    Thanks so much for the feature! I’m loving how you made your own raw hem jeans! Super cool look!

    I love ponchos! Just the thing to put on when it gets a bit cooler, goes with anything. And you look so cool with this rocking poncho with attitude! Have a great weekend.

    They are the perfect Autumn piece. I haven’t worn mine yet but I probably will from this week onwards. There’s the beginning of the nip in the air now. Yours looks so right with those boots – I love the touch of the biker about them with the chunky block heel.


  • Reply Emma Peach October 18, 2016 at 5:40 am

    Ponchos feel so lovely and cosy, and look very stylish too. They’re perfect for Autumn. I love the ribbed cuffs and neck on yours.
