Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today! Today’s theme is coats, capes and ponchos!  To say I have been obsessed with each of these is an understatement.  I don’t know if it’s the cold weather or the fact that I got used to dressing for comfort while pregnant, but I literally have been throwing on a cape, poncho or coat over pretty much everything I wear – dresses, leggings, tunics, anything.  It is the perfect modern way to layer for the winter.  When I spotted this cape from River Island a few months ago, I jumped on it immediately, and I have gotten so much use out of it already.  I love the fur collar on it too.  It is sold out in this color plaid, but I really love this plaid printed one too!  I think I may even get the arms stitched so it will stay on my shoulders and arms better like a poncho more than a cape.  The cape is pretty casual so I paired it with some casual booties, but then added a dressier piece like a LBD.  By the way, you have got to check out H.C.B.’s great selection of shoes.  I am wearing a pair of their booties today.  The fit is great, they are comfortable, they look great, and they are only $50!  And don’t forget to check out the featured bloggers from last week below.

Next Tuesday’s theme is boots and booties.  I have added so many new pairs to my collection over the last few months (it was the easiest thing to shop for while pregnant.)  = ) that it will be hard to pick a favorite!
All bloggers will be able to submit their post links via the inlinkz widget below every Tuesday at 7:00am CST with their take on our trend of the week. The linkup runs for 1 week. This allows bloggers to show off their personal style, find new followers and meet some great fashionistas! You will also have the chance to be featured on our blogs the following Tuesday! So grab the button (on my Trend Spin Linkup page) and link up. For all bloggers we simply ask that you please follow your two hosts and the cohost of the week – myself, The Fashion Canvas and The Yellow Petunia (the first 3 links in the linkup) and provide a link to the Trend Spin Linkup in your post or add the button here to your blog. Don’t forget to stop by the The Fashion Canvas and The Yellow Petunia to see how they wore the trend today. See you next week in metallics!

    Okay so I am thinking about entering into the Trend Spin Linkup but want to make sure I am doing it right. So for this week I would add my pictures wearing a coat, cape or poncho and then next week starting Tuesday i would add a post wearing boots or booties???

  2. Hi Laura,

    I am so sorry but I just linked up an outfit that doesn't belong here and I can't click on the delete button because the Pinterest icon shows up and takes me to pin the image. Clearly it's 1 am and I'm sleep deprived; I didn't mean to link up that hot pink dress on this trend spin linkup (I have various pages open at once)… So sorry!
