Happy almost Thursday! How has your week been?! Mine has been very busy, that is why my lack of posts. I meant to post yesterday early morning and once again today morning, plus my usual Thursday Moda morning post every Thursday. But here I am two posts short so far this week, however I did get a lot of stuff done, organized and clean yesterday and today on my days off, too. So yeah that happened. Plus it has been extremely hot and humid and mosquito-filled here the last couple of days so spending them inside was best. Now let's get to the reason you are all here for - fashion, duhh! BTW, I wore this dress a couple of days ago when it started getting to the 80s, here.
You guys know how much I love bright colors and neon colors. This dress besides having two favorite girly colors of mine: red and pink, hits so many current trends - off shoulder style (though I wore it on the shoulder this time around), ruffled hem and palm prints. I decided to go for it and add more trends in my styling for the first time that I wore it: Pom-Pom+Tassel Earrings, Tassel Beaded Bracelets, Crossbody Saddle Bag (love that it is in olive which paired well with my nude shoes) and Nude-Colored Block Heel Sandals. The Orange Nude Sunnies played off well with the Neon Tones of the dress. Ohh and my Nude Sandals are my current favorite pair of the moment. I just purchased them at Target (like most of the rest of my outfit too, except the jewelry) and they are by Who What Wear - hands down my most favorite brand Target has. You will see them on my next post or two and no I am not sorry. Also this dress is by the Merona brand of Target. It is a women's not junior's brand but this season they have a lot of youthful dresses like this one and my style or a very similar style comes in many colors and patterns. I also love this teal+greenery patterned one. As far as the jewelry, I finally ordered from Bauble Bar and I love my New Statement Earrings and gifted Dainty Bar Pave Necklace. It won't be my last time ordering there. The earrings in light blue, navy and coral looked so good with my beaded teal and aqua beaded tassel bracelets I received last Spring from Pumps and Pushups.

Last week I had a great collaboration and linkup with my lovely mama co-host Stephanie and around 135 links were added so of course narrowing it down to 6 favorites was very hard. It was a big Mother's Day week for my blog. I noticed that my selected outfits and features today are almost all mothers. I wasn't necessarily looking for stylish moms since we just passed Mother's Day, it just happened that way. All of these beautiful mothers look great whether casual, semi dressy, very dressy or even wedding fancy. Read on below:
This week's featured blogger is JENNA from Rain on a Tin Roof who is a girl from a small Southern town and lover of Rock N' Roll and the post that she linked up clearly shows that too. I just recently discovered her blog but I love her style and her sarcasm. In the post she linked up she showed us four different ways to style musical band tees. My two favorite looks were in the collage above because not only do I like those bands' tees but I love that she dressed them up with bright patent leather pumps and a bright envelope clutch, each time. These outfits are not just jeans and a t-shirt. They are bright, dressed up, whimsical and fun. They can take you to dinner, a girls' night out, a date with your partner or the disco. If you don't know about Jenna's blog yet, stop on over.
Emma's medallion lace red dress is 'Styled Two Ways' - equally gorgeous and sophisticated with such a bold feather necklace. Her crystal clutch is stunning too.
Christine did a mix+match style post with her gorgeous ginger girl Ella and you should read it because besides them looking adorable, Christine shares some great 'French Parenting Tips'.
Shelly is always one cool chic when it comes to her personal style. This mom knows how to mix colors, patterns and accessories and her 'Spring Fashion' gingham+lace outfit shows it.
With that sharp one shoulder in such a classic navy color and a metallic sheen, I bet my money that Rachael was indeed 'Best Dressed' at the New York wedding she recently attended.
Rena's 'Easy Cool Floral' suits her style and personality. Of course I'd love that dress in a pretty print - it is by Who What Wear. Her T-Strap Pumps are gorgeous and the perfect match to the teal part of the dress.
