Ponchos & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

October 8, 2015
I’m a sucker for ponchos. If I had more time this week, I’d dig out a pic of me as a kid in my crochet poncho look, circa 1975.  You’ll just have to use your imagination.  And don’t forget to make it a 70s-rific brown, rust, and mustard!

But anyway, here’s my grown up version.  Love this cozy poncho that has been hanging in my closet for so long that I forget where it comes from.

This month’s How I Wear My theme was ponchos and wraps, so I have two looks to share.

This one was a fun find from eShakti.

I’m ready for fall … now if the California weather would just cooperate!

    I really love the gray poncho with the contrasting black trim! I also have a photo from the 70's of me in an orange ad white crochet poncho. My grandmother is in the picture with me and she is wearing a blue crochet shawl, which I still have! I am planning a post wearing that shawl!!! I also need the weather to cooperate!

    Those ponchos look great on you. I've tried a couple on, but I'm fairly short, so they seem to just seem to feel too big on me.

  • Reply Doused In Pink October 9, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    I think I had a similar brown striped poncho back in 1975! Both of these poncho's are fab! I love the tassels on the black one!

    As you know, "boho-inspired" is one of my go-to looks, dearest Dawn…so how is it that I don't yet own a single poncho?! After seeing you in your two fabulous versions, I think I'll be rectifying that particular situation ASAP!! So adorable!! XOXO


    • Reply dawnlucy October 9, 2015 at 3:56 pm

      I'm in shock that you're poncho-less Girl! ;P !!


  • Reply Alexandra B. October 9, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    I would love to have a poncho for this winter season. Let's see if I manage to find one that inspires me all the way thought 😉

    You are looking great in both those outfits, I do like the flared boho version a bit better as that's more my own current vibe. Have a wonderful weekend!
