Thursday Moda #82: Light Neutrals for Early Fall.

Happy Linkup Day!! Today I have a co-host and it is my fellow Eastern European beauty and girl mom BOJANA from Bo's Bodacious Blog, who currently blogs from Canada but is originally from Serbia. We are styling Light Neutrals for Early Fall. I think light-colored neutrals are a great option to wear from September at least until mid to late October. Think light grey, taupe, beige, soft camel, mellow yellow or even a light blue like sky blue because if paired with other neutrals, it is definitely a neutral. It has been warm around here lately as you may have seen on my Instagram stories, as high as 91 degrees at times and it looks like it has been the case for where Bojana (Bo) lives as well. She rocked some very Stylish Paperbag-Waist Brown Tweedy Pants paired with an Ivory-Grey Wrap Tee and Open-Toe Tan Booties which I think is a great outfit to wear to the office during this transitioning of seasons. Bo is not a stranger to Thursday Moda, eventhough it is only the first time she has co-hosted or collaborated with me. I have featured her on my blog as "The Featured Blogger" twice, actually last time was only 2 weeks ago - I love her style whether she is dressy or casual. Besides the fact that we are both Eastern European, we are around the same age and Bo has two gorgeous girls, which are sometimes featured on her blog, too.

As you guys know I am a huge fan of Who What Wear - my favorite line at Target ever, hands down. They are so good about keeping up with the trends, yet have many elegant, classic pieces. Their quality is great for the price too. Think Express or Loft quality for way cheaper price-wise. My last dress that I shared on the blog for the Fall Wedding "The September Issue" post which you all loved, is also a new dress (current) from Who What Wear and you loved that dress so much. Well this Sky Blue+White Pinstriped Off-Shoulder Blouse (which can also be worn as a boat-neck) is from the Who What Wear brand. I love the crochet detail on each sleeve and the 3/4 length makes those sleeves perfect for early Fall. My Nude Faux Suede Sandals with the low block heels are also from Who What Wear and they have been my most-worn sandals of the Summer though I own a ton of shoes and definitely a lot of sandals. This particular pair has been worn at least 20 times - I even packed them on vacation. The best part is that you can still buy them here. I am not surprised they haven't gone on sale even-though they have been there since Spring, because they are such a classy, versatile piece. And that oversized plastic buckle is the best. These sandals are gorgeous, well-made, go with everything and behind comfortable. I figured since we have had some very warm days here, I could wear them for early Fall. I can see them styled with dresses or skirts with tights too, though. Last but not least, my Fun Distressed Jeans which have been in my closet for 1.5 years are also a wonderful Target find. I love them so much. They are ankle-length which makes them perfect for sandals, booties and mules. I loved how well the blue jeans looked with the blue striped shirt for a cool monochromatic look.

For this outfit I layered two necklaces. Nothing beats the Rayne Necklace from Kendra Scott because it is a beautiful piece that always makes a statement and the type of necklace you can wear for any season. They come in a ton of colors and I own this gorgeous lavender one and the emerald green color, too. I layered it with my Gold-Tone Skinny Bar Turquoise Necklace by Baublebar which they currently don't have anymore, but this is identical except it is all in gold metallic. These two necklaces looked so great layered together. Speaking of Baublebar I wore their Pom Pom Tassel Earrings (the ones I linked are identical in slightly different colors). I have worn these earrings so much this Summer and packed them for vacation too, of course. Oh and in case you are wondering my sunnies are from Loft. I always find cute sunglasses at Loft and I usually purchase them during one of their million sales.

I am not one to carry flowers in my bags or pose in my OOTD pictures with fresh flowers tucked inside my purse. I have seen many bloggers do that and some do it so well but I think I have only done that once or twice before. The day I wore this outfit though, we went shopping to a farmer's market and I couldn't resist purchasing these gorgeous, home-grown orange ombre roses. They were so beautiful and unique. Of course the lady wrapped them in paper for me but I stuck them inside my tote as they were. When I went home I unwrapped them and couldn't resist making them part of my outfit. They are stunning and smelled so good. And speaking of my tote, it is one of those reversible ones. Mine is  camel and mint or aqua on the other side (which I have never carried it that way). Mine is faux leather and is a steal from Wal Mart for under 20 bucks, but you can find reversible totes like mine everywhere from Target to Nordstrom for a great price point. I definitely suggest you buy at least one. They carry so much and are so chic!

You all missed out on my favorites last week but I am back with my featured looks this week. There were about 100 outfits linked last week and narrowing it down to 5 is no easy task. My favorites this week are all so very different but all equally great looks in my opinion. Two are definitely more Summery looks and both slightly edgy with the denim while the other three are definitely Fall looks.
Lee has on the most adorable outfit I have seen all Fall so far. Those 'Ruffle Sleeves' and the way she knotted the ends of her leopard scarf - oh my. The backpack adds to the modern and chic look.
I am a huge fan of 'Birmingham, MI' and my fellow Michigander Chanda, knows where all the best restaurants are. Loved her denim overalls with the gold oxford loafers and her daughter matched her too.
Come on you know I'd love this 'Autumn Shirtdress' that Kim wore. I am a sucker for a long-sleeve dress with ruffles, in a bold colorful print and this is proof.
Jaime's look is divine 'Head to Toe' as I seriously love every single piece. But the true star here are those bow mule flats. Can they magically appear in my closet?!
Emma is wearing a 'Purple Escada Jacket' that looks from a different era altogether, but that is most definitely a compliment. She is 1000% polished.

Today's Fabulous Thursday Moda Co-Host: Bo's Bodacious Blog.
I have only 'known' Bo for a few months but she has such cute and achievable style. She shops at reasonable stores I love like Old Navy and loves a good remix, like she has shown below with both her tulle embroidered skirt and those stunning cream pumps. These are just some of her recent looks I have loved.
From Bo's Mouth:
"My name is Bojana and  I am a  34 year old woman that wears many hats throughout the day; mom, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, granddaughter, friend, teacher, early years childhood and literacy consultant, and fitness enthusiast,  just to name a few.   I created Bosbodaciousblog in 2016 as a way to express and rediscover myself, and who I was in the midst of all of these other characters that I had taken on over the years.  Hop over to my blog, or follow me on Instagram, to see daily outfits that are trendy,  affordable and functional for everyday women.  You'll also get a glimpse into 
my little family that isn't always perfect BUT is always honest, realistic, and full of love and laughter."

Shopbop's End of Season Sale ends on Friday September 29th so hurry and add some new Fall/Winter items. In case you missed it, I shared my favorites here.

Happy Thursday!!
