Thursday Moda #17 and Scuba Floral Dress.

Welcome to another week of Thursday Moda. Hard to believe that June is almost over but hey I am ready for Vacation and off we will be next Saturday. Cannot wait to get some fun time by the sun and enjoy the beach. 

Floral Prints and Palm Prints are huge this Summer (well floral always is). This New Fit+Flare Scuba Dress combines both. I absolutely love its vibrant colors and how it is outlined with the Black piping which makes matching it with Black Accessories even easier to do and adds to the elegance. Those Strappy Woven+Patent Leather Black Pumps matched it so well and my Crystal Butterfly Hair Clip matches every color of the dress while the Bright Orange Bag adds a punch of Vitamin C color. What do you think? Yeay or nay on Palm Prints? What about a Scuba material for Summer?

It gets harder and harder for me to choose from over 100 looks as a few favorites each week and that's a good thing. It means you all bring out your fashion A game. This week is mostly about stylish moms, buns and some pretty neutral blue+white striped tops. Two of the bloggers are even twinning but I loved their outfits equally the same.
Today's Featured Blogger is LAURA from I Do deClaire who linked up not one but two darling outfits. It is perfect for me to feature Laura because her outfits last week suit my blog's title and mantra to a T. On the left she is showing us her Mommy Style with her mini twin, her daughter Claire whom she has named the blog after. I love Laura's easy breezy mom look with the cute peplum and just-as-cute sandals. While, on the right she shows us her elegant style in a Fun Tasseled Hot Pink Dress. Love her hair in a bun too. Laura has been blogging for a few years and I have collaborated with her on my blog many times before. She is a stylish lady and mamma with a great blog and a very successful linkup on Tuesdays named "Confident Twosday", which I have co-hosted a few times, too. Our daughters are the same age, too. You my remember Laura when not too long ago she co-hosted Thursday Moda with me when we both wore Little Black Dresses. Stop by her blog today and make sure you follow Laura if you don't already.

Jaymie shows us her 'Romper Again'. She has been styling this Little Black Romper many ways lately but topped off with this little patterned jacket and a long tassel necklace is my favorite look so far.
Kim wears her 'Bow Off Shoulder Top' with Rolled Blue Denim Shorts and Cognac Flatforms which I recently just ordered myself. Love it.
Shannon also wears the same 'Off the Shoulder' with Denim Cut-Offs, Nude Sandals and a Nude Crossbody Bag just like Kim (above). They are twinning and I love Shannon's Summer casual look, too.
Shea showed off her Graphic Tee Collection and her 'Maternity Style' beautifully by knotting her Fun Tee over a Patterned Maxi Dress - genius!

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,

Now, join the Linkup!
