Thursday Moda #47: After Christmas and Viv-ing it Up!

Happy Thursday Moda!! Let me explain today's post title a little bit. First: these photos were taken after Christmas (exactly 2 weeks ago on Thursday January 5th) and secondly "Viv-ing it Up" is in honor of Vivian,  little word pun with 'Living it Up'. That is because today is Vivian's birthday and my sweet girl turns four. Her name means life, joy of life, joy de vivre so "Viv-ing it Up" is totally suitable. Happy Birthday Vivian, my little doll! I will have a special Birthday post for my wonderful Vivian, tomorrow, but for now let's move on to this week's Thursday Moda.
So, like I mentioned today's photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, when I visited my first cousin's beautiful home for some holiday get-together. He and his wife are great hosts and on top of that their home looked stunning for Christmas. Besides my own home, I hadn't seen a house so decked out for Christmas in real life. Below, you will see some pictures of Viv and I as well as a few photos of their beautiful home. I kept my outfit simple and mostly in black monochrome by pairing my Faux Leather Leggings with a Black, Cherry-Print, Button-Back Sweater, Suede Olive Booties and my Blue Crystal Statement Necklace for a color pop. Hope you like it. =)

I absolutely loved how their fireplace and mantle were decorated. The silver with pops of red+green were perfect for the top of mantle. I also love their Christmas tree. It was decorated in all linen, cloth, paper and burlap ornaments and a big burlap ribbon all around. There were many animals and stars around it and it had such a pretty rustic feel. I loved it!! There was a pretty train going around the rails, circling the tree skirt on the bottom and Vivian was a huge fan of that as you can tell from the photos.

Black, Long Sleeve Crew-Neck Sweater w/ a Nude Cherry Pattern on the front: Loft (New) (similar cardigan, on Sale), (bow-tie, two-in-one option, my Favorite), (V-neck option, Splurge, love this).
Black Faux Leather Leggings: Maurice's (New) (similar, Steal), (similar, Great Deal), (similar, small Splurge, love these), (similar, Splurge).
Blue+Silver Crystal "Sally" Statement Necklace: Perry Street via Rocksbox (New) (similar, Steal, love this), (similar, Great Deal), (similar, Splurge, my Favorite).
Silver Pave Wreath "Sol" Studs: Sophie Harper via Rocksbox (New) (similar, Steal), (similar, Great Deal, love these), (similar w/ pearls, my Favorite).
Gold-Tone Stretchy Bracelet w/ Black Stones: The Limited (New) (very similar, Steal), (similar, Great Deal, love this), (similar, Small Splurge).

Vivian's Outfit:
Fuchsia/Hot Pink Cable-knit Sweater: Von Maur (Gifted), (New).
Pastel-Colored Baby Blue, Lavender + Baby Pink Tutu Skirt w/ Matching Big Bow Tulle Headband: The Children's Place (New).
Hot Pink Knit Leggings w/ Red Hearts in front by the knees: Cat & Jack via Target (New).
Gray Tweed + Mixed Media Boots: Oshkosh (Gifted), (New). 

I will show you the rest of my favorite ladies who linked up last week this Friday, but for now I want to focus on the Featured Blogger - Emma. I loved the Mommy+Me post and Outfits she linked up last week and I had no idea I would post this particular Black+Leather Outfit on my Thursday Moda day this week, but hey Emma and her daughter look just as great on their similar matching, Black+Leather, Mommy+Me Looks.
Today's Featured Blogger is EMMA from Style Splash - a 40-something British blogger and mum who is a Journalist major. Her Mummy+Me Post where she featured her daughter Isabel, had not one but two adorable looks. Both ladies wore black skinnies tucked into knee-high black leather boots, cute crossbody bags, adorable statement-making animal sweaters and black leather biker jackets. I must say Isabel loved posing with her mamma for the blog. Emma's blog is indeed many splashes of style - like the name of the blog suggests. She started a brand-new linkup last week and you can join her every Tuesday for her "Style with a Smile" linkup. Make sure you follow her while you are there, Emma is super chic and nice.

Now join the linkup and make some new friends!

  17. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI www.pesugihan-uang-ghaib.com agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
