Thursday Moda #9 and a Peach Top (plus lots of Love).

Hi there. Happy Thursday Eve! There is so much I love in today's post. So there is a lot to get to.


Like I said, there is a lot I love today. I love my outfit. I love my co-host's outfit and style. I love these pretty Spring colors. I love the accessories. I love the new set of jewelry from Rockbox I received (that I am currently wearing). I love my new Dolce Vita Nude Wedges and my new Bright Orange Saddle Bag (both from Target). I love my hair and the fresh color I got (a red-ish dark brown). I love today's photos: they are crisp, clean and beautiful. I also love all the bloggers' outfits that I am featuring in today's post. And I love all of you who support my blog, like my style, compliment my daughter Vivian on a daily basis and come by here on Thursdays to linkup with me. I appreciate it. It was about 4 years ago, in Spring of 2012, that this little blog took off and I have had so much fun ever since. It is the best hobby, but also the most time-consuming one, but I love it!


My Lovely co-host today is LEE from Wine and Couture whose blog I discovered a little over a year ago via a linkup. I am glad I stopped by and started following her right away because she has amazing style. We reconnected recently, and I have been stopping by her blog at least once or twice a week for inspiration. Like me she loves colors, patterns, fun pants, statement jewelry and pretty shoes. Today we both are styling light peach tops that are perfect for Spring. Lee has actually styled lots of pretty peach and coral tops in the last few weeks, as one of the outfits from the collage of some looks I highlighted of hers (read further below) also shows. Her office style is bright and fun, modern and cool. I just love the joggers, clutch and gold shoes she wore today. It is great that we both chose neutral sandals and both wore pants to style our peach tops. Stop by her blog today to see her outfit in more detail. And start following her - she doesn't disappoint.

I just love my outfit today. Everyone that knows me knows that I love color. I love bright colors and I love jewelry and this outfit has plenty of both. Hands down my most favorite outfit I have ever posted on Thursday Moda during my linkup days, so far! And posting bright colored pants two days in a row wasn't on purpose. Coincidentally, both pairs of bright pants were styled with pastel tops, statement earrings and long bright pendant necklaces. Everything I am wearing in my outfit, head to toe is new. Even my lipgloss is new. I needed some lipglosses and on a recent Wal Mart trip I picked up a couple (and some other makeup by Wet N' Wild). My New lipgloss is the Mega Slicks one by Wet N' Wild in Red Sensation and it is awesome. Great lipgloss for the price. 

As you may remember from last week's Thursday Moda I styled a linen-blend Lace Yoke LWD. I promised that this week I would be back with my Lace Yoke Top (just like the dress this is from Old Navy). My Elbow-Sleeve Peach Top has the gorgeous lace yoke detail all over the neckline. The light breezy material is airy and I love the swing style. I styled it with these new Bright Yellow/Mustard Cropped Pants. They are the Riviera Cropped Pants in the Marisa Fit by Loft and I recommend this style and fit of the pants so much. They have a little stretch to them. The soft pastel peach and bright mustard worked so well together. I then added a Bright Orange Saddle Bag and some stunning Statement Jewelry from Rocksbox. I love the mix of the Light Aqua Bangle with the Dark Purple Agate Stone Necklace and those Fuchsia+Silver Crystal Pave Earrings. I tried photographing the jewelry over an evergreen bush in our front yard, but I am not sure you could see them so well, though the pictures are still nice. Last but not least I am wearing the new Nude DV for Target Espadrille Wedges that I just got and love. I know I will be wearing these non-stop between now and September. Even my hair is new: I cut off a couple of inches and got a new coat of color, too. What do you think of this bright look for Spring? Do you like it? How are you styling bright colored pants this Spring?

Last week, there were so many bright looks - perhaps they inspired my outfit today. Red was a sensational color you all chose (as my favorite looks will prove today too). Red is after all my most favorite color. The heart likes what the heart likes. Besides the 3 favorite blogger looks, I was torn in choosing Martina's OutfitChannelle's Outfit and Debbie's Outfit as my 3 favorites but ultimately I decided on the three below, cause I love them.
Today's featured blogger is Claire from Claire Justine. Claire Justine linked up two gorgeous 50s retro inspired red patterned dresses (circle dress and poppy dress) complete with a pair of different red pumps for each. It's funny because she was the first one to linkup last week and her dresses have my hearts and she styled them perfectly keeping the 50s theme going. Claire Justine is a British blogger. I tell you she is super woman. She runs more than one blog and her main blog Claire Justine showcases everything in her life: what she wears, her kids, her photography, what she eats and bakes, DIY and craft projects, etc. She is an excellent cook, baker and drink-maker too. Her recipes are fun and her art photos are bright and beautiful. She also has been running her own linkups for years on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I love her "Creative Monday" linkup the best. Make sure you check her out.

Lisa does 'Occasion Dressing' best in her bright and bold head to toe red outfit. I love the pumps and coat.
Ashley 'Holy Grail Off the Shoulder' is wearing a typical outfit for her, complete with skinny jeans, fabulous heels and a gorgeous smile.
Sara who is new to the linkup, shows her 'Derby Style' beautifully in a floral lavender sheath and lavender fascinator hat. She is a stunner.

Thursday Moda Co-Host: Wine & Couture.
And here is just a glimpse of my stylish co-host for today. Some recent pretty Spring looks of hers.
From Lee's Mouth:
"Wine and Couture started almost 4 years ago as Everyday Fashion.  I started the blog as a fashion / restyle blog which has grown into a Life and Style blog including Fashion, Recipes, and Beauty.  I love sharing how to shop your closet and purchase items that will work for all aspects of your life.  You can find me on InstagramBloglovin, or Facebook.  Stop by and say Hello!"


P.S. Linking up with Adri + Jessica, Alice, Ana Luiza with Michelle, Annie, Brooke with Erica, Carrie with Jill, Christie, Claire, Dawn, Grace, Elle with Jacqueline, Heather, Jalynn,
I am also linking with Ana Luiza and Michelle. Their themed linkup this week is Yellow.

  10. I have an almost identical top! Mine is a little bit of a lighter pink and more sheer, though... So, I def. have to layer something under it like a cami or my striped b/w dress :) It looks great with the yellow pants!
