Thursday Moda #18 in Red, White and Feminine.

Welcome to Thursday Moda #18. Hard to believe I have been running this linkup for 4 months, now. It has been real good too, thanks to all of you! I am back in another White Dress. And a little more 4th of July inspiration since I chose Red Shoes and a Red Purse to pair my Midi LWD with.

Today's co-host is Elizabeth from Lizzie in Lace who is the girliest blogger and substitute teacher. Elizabeth (or Lizzie, or Liz) has a huge collection of Dresses, Skirts, Tulle and Bohemian pieces and she is in a dress or skirt 90% of the time (my kind of girl). She loves accessorizing with statement necklaces, red lipstick, pretty bohemian headbands and floppy hats. Today we are both in Red and White putting our Patriotic but Feminine flair to our outfits. Lizzie's beautiful Floral Blouse has also some Navy in it. Funny thing is I own the same Red Wedges as her and almost wore them with this outfit lol. Lizzie runs her own style linkup on Fridays - "Friday Favorites"  which I was a co-host for a couple of weeks ago. I am so glad she returned the favor, today. I find Liz's style adorable!

This is another LWD today in a Shirtdress style, featuring an eyelet see-through back. I recently purchased this dress for about 70% off, from Ann Taylor. The dress is made of a poplin cotton but it is still pretty thick and I love those oversized pockets. I also like that the buttons are covered. The midi length and hi-lo design on each side of the skirt are very modern. I just love, love that eyelet back though. I wore this dress out and about. I would very much wear it to work too, but with a nude slip underneath it. I decided to cinch the waist with an Urban, Sturdy, Brown Leather Belt that has been in my closet for years. I also added an Indian-inspired Wide Orange+Gold Cuff which I have paired with this same belt, before. Both of these pieces match my Brown Tortoise Glasses quite well. My Red Satin Slides go well with the Red Logo Purse. The Satin Red Slip-on Slides are so beautiful. They feature a Chinese Floral Pattern. And you can see my love for Kendra Scott Jewelry as I am wearing a Bracelet, Earrings and Necklace all from her. My Rose Quartz Statement Earrings mesh perfectly with the Dainty Druzy Rose Quartz Necklace. All in all, a chic, polished, street-chic and elegant look. Do you own a Midi-length White Dress? What about a White Shirtdress?

Last Week all of you loved my Bright Floral Scuba Dress. I also loved so many of your outfits, I had a very hard time selecting 3-4 favorite looks and a featured blogger. So, instead I am choosing my most favorite 6 outfits. The linkup had 125 entries from you all so thank you. There were a lot of Red+White+Blue Outfits (as my collage below also shows) and in general some great Summer Outfits. Keep making me inspired! And Happy 4th of July Weekend everyone - hope the ladies below will get you inspired to look cute for the 4th!!
Cara's 'Beach Vibes' can be seen in the tiered, pretty coral tank like waves on the sea and that fedora. 
Tiffany wore the Prettiest Serenity 'Crochet Lace Dress'. The midi length, the fit, the style, the lace, the color - come on, it is Perfection!
Petite Beauty Sheree rocks is polished up in 'Gingham Red White Blue'. Her Laced-up White Skirt and Off-Shoulder Gingham Blouse are so pretty.
Lorena rocks her 'Separates'. That Red+White Striped Pleated Midi Skirt is stunning, especially with the Button-Down Blue Chambray Shirt. All the white buttons on the front make it look like a dress.
Lisa is a style twin with Lorena in 'The Perfect Chambray Shirt' half-tucked into her Red+White Adorable Shorts.
Katie says she wears 'This Print on Repeat'. I cannot blame her, that midi skirt is stunning with a capital "S".

Today's Co Host: Lizzie in Lace.
As I mentioned Liz has gorgeous dresses and below I selected a few favorites she has worn lately. Look at those pretty LWDs and I must say her Nude Sandal collection is beautiful - a different pair below, with each outfit.

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!
