Stretch Gauze Pants & Link Up

June 21, 2018

So today I have a few treats for you. First, a colorful, cubist polar bear?!  Haha .. I don’t know what it is, but it’s a fun background for sure!

Summer Fun

One of my favorite parts of summer is having time to hang out with and reconnect with my girls.  This week I got to catch up with Cathy of Bay Area Fashionista for lunch, chit chat, shopping … and of course photos … we ARE bloggers, after all!

The Pants

I wore these super comfortable gauze stretch crop pants from Soft Surroundings (c/o). They’re lightweight, yet the gauzy fabric hides any bumps and bulges.  They’re cute with scrappy sandals for a lunch out, comfy sandals for every day, or heels and a blouse at the office.  I’m wearing the “Vintage Gray” and they also come in “Vintage Khaki.”  A great summer staple!

Oldies but Goodies

I’m wearing them with other summer staples that I’ve had forever, this Rag & Bone black tank and these cage sandals.

Also wearing my ASOS square tort sunnies that seem to have become my summer favorite this year.


I added two of my treats to myself from Amsterdam … fun star earrings and this cool color-block crossbody bag  from Hester Van Eeghen.

The bag is gorgeous leather, so well-made and with a beautiful unique design.  If you’re ever in Amsterdam, you must check out her shop!



Shopping Links


My pick from last week is Ashleigh of The Lady About Town in this pretty colorful summer dress!

And if you haven’t already you need to check out my new mix and match pajama wardrobe!

Don’t forget to link up!  And and by the way, happy birthday to me!  Bring on 52!


Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

    What a fun post! With the cute bag and the awesome background, it’s so colourful and perfect for summer! Your neutral outfit is just the best backdrop for the bag and mural too! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far! It’s really cold here but I’m enjoying layering up for winter 🙂

    Oh my, I totally love the background of today’s post! I think the artist of the mural is Okuda. Love your bag and it matches the wall perfectly!

      I’ll look up the artist for sure! You always have the BEST backdrops, Katie!

    I think it’s called a nanook, at least up here at the Last Frontier. Your crossbody is so cute. Great styling!

    Happy Birthday Dawn Lucy – I 50 next year and I’m excited. 5 years ago I would have been stressed, but thanks to fashion beauties like you I can’t wait to jump in! Love the cube bear what a perfect backdrop for your clutch! xx

    First – sending you lots of love and best wishes for your birthday, dearest Dawn!! And second?? Oogling with envy that DIVINE red and black crossbody bag that you brought home from Amsterdam; you have souvenir shopping down to a science!! ;D That little beauty is going to add the perfect “pop” to so many of your looks right through summer and into fall…I can just tell!! And your gauzy capris hit the mark for all the hot weather that’s still (hopefully!) to come; if I remember correctly, you are a “sun-bunny” like I am!! XOXO
