Thursday Moda #112: Monochrome Millennial Pink.

My life has been a roller-coaster the last 5-6 months, I could seriously use all the virtual hugs and all the praying! I wish I could be more open, but I am not ready to talk about anything specific, just yet. But seriously. I don't even know how I make it sometimes. And I really don't want to complain, because in general I like to see the glass as half full, but I am a realist. Plus, I feel like I have complained about the weather a lot lately, on the blog. Though thankfully we have had some warmer days from low in upper 40s to high in mid 60s. But speaking of that roller-coaster, some days are better than others, some are great days - like last Sunday where I wore this Monochrome Millennial Pink Outfit, when I met my first cousin and my cousin-in-law for Starbucks and a lunch date, in beautiful down-town Northville, MI. Plus our temps were a high of 60, though a little windy. Glad I stuck with a sweater and jeans.

There have been many highs but quite a few lows, too. I work full-time, I am a full-time mom and on top of that I try to run this blog and my Instagram as full-time as possible without any help, but 17-21 posts is the norm of what I can 'handle' since last year, now. Blogging is hard and time-consuming and sleep-depriving. As a matter of fact as I am typing this it is 12.45 AM and I just started writing my Thursday Moda post. I have at least 20 outfits I have shot that haven't seen the light of day in this blog. By the same token the last 4-5 outfits I have worn, I haven't been able to photograph due to lack of time and main life priorities. Plus, I was dealing with a bad wisdom tooth for about 3 weeks. I was in so much pain. It took long enough for it to be cleared off infection and finally this Tuesday I had oral surgery and had it pulled out. I slept it off a little bit and spent all Tuesday in bed trying to heal. I could have used Wednesday off. But not only did I work, I had such a busy and hectic work day and each hour dragged on. It wasn't pretty. Due to all of this, blogging has taken a back-seat as have my comments in other blogs and even the linkups in the morning which take so much time. But as far as all of these blog things go, I try not to sweat it, when I have time I will link up my latest posts and comment on my favorite blogs and when I don't I won't - as simple as that. Something's gotta give, always. We are human beings, not machines. I am so busy and wear so many hats on a daily basis as far as my own personal life goes, so yeah blogging can wait. It is still not a job for me, it doesn't pay my bills, it is just a hobby! Life is already chaotic and busy-as-fuck and insanely emotional and full of surprises - good and bad ones - no need to add to the everyday chaos. Trust me, that is the last thing I need personally. Especially since on top of everything, this April has been such an expensive month for me because of sudden expenses and life situations and this and that... Gosh I am complaining and I hate when I or others complain lol, let's move on to the outfit...


MONOCHROME  MILLENNIAL  PINK. 

I cannot stay away from Millennial Pink or Blush Pink or Soft Pink, lately. As some of my latest posts in here show too (exhibit A and B). It is such a beautiful color that I have been wearing in small doses, medium doses or a lot, like in today's lovely Sunday stroll look. I love that despite having many tones of soft pink on from darkest to lightest, this tone-on-tone monochromatic look totally works. And yes, in case you counted all the pinks, they are in my booties, skinny jeans, cowl-neck sweater, sunglasses, lips and cheeks. Even the little pimple above my upper lip (due to my period - thank you lol!) is a hot shade of pink. My cousin-in-law (pictured right below with Vivian) was wearing a similar monochromatic look in shades of ivory.




Last week was all about textures+lace for me, but I did notice all the pretty prints you all linked. Some were small, some were whimsical, some were large and bold and fun. You will notice it through some of my favorite outfits today. How did I narrow it down to 6?! It was difficult, let me tell you. But look at those pretty florals and that fun 70s-inspired jumpsuit!!

Nina designed 'A Perfect Spring Dress for Mother's Day'. The olive and mustard shades on such a pretty floral, combined with a flattering midi length, make it so beautiful.
Kelsey's 'Geometric Blouse' is perfect for Spring and she can match those colors with so much in her wardrobe. The turquoise statement necklace was perfect for this April Springy look.
Bryanna is in 'Coachella Street Style' wearing a funky floral, 70s jumpsuit complete with retro sunnies, a cute fanny pack and a fun newsboy cap. Even her background is perfect!
Nailil has on 'An Embroidered Skirt' that shows off her beautiful long legs. With Mexican vibes while carrying a bamboo bag, she is ready for date night... on Cinco de Mayo.
Jennie stays true to her favorite pattern- 'Polka Dot'. Her dots are large and in charge and go so well with the matchy black+white stripes. Love it!
'Moving to a New City' brought new shots and gorgeous backgrounds for Roxanne. Her style is a little more elegant too, like this stunning wrap dress with a flirty ruffle. Love her shoes.



Sorry for this week's huge rant... but such is life! Next week I will be more cheerful (hopefully) as I celebrate my birthday so join me next week for a special Thursday Moda Celebration, because May 3rd and May 4th will be reserved for my Blog Birthday Party where I have invited some of my favorite blogger babe friends, too.

  4. Sending you hugs! You have had so much going on and I can't even imagine going back to work the day after having a wisdom tooth pulled! You need to take care of yourself! Blogging is hugely time consuming, I did it while working two other jobs, and it was crazy stressful.

But you know how strong times like these make you. And you are fighting your way through like the super hero that you are!

  13. Sending you a huge hug. I know thinks are tough for your right now but it will get better. Also have you thought about cutting back on blogging. I only blog Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. That way I don't get stress out about it. Also take a few weeks off if you need to.

    If you ever just need to chat. You know you can.

  14. I have to say this might be my favorite outfit on you! The colors are gorgeous and I am in love with those booties! Sorry you are going through a tough time. I hope things get better for you soon. Just take it one day at a time. Blogging sometimes needs to take a back seat to life. And we will be here when you are blogging again. I'll be thinking and praying for you!

  15. So sorry you are struggling Ada! It is hard enough to deal with every day life but add in all the extra stress (and blessings) of motherhood and bloglife and it can really get crazy. I made a commitment to myself this year to not feel guilty if I couldn't blog as much or if I couldn't look at other blogs as much....we are all in a similar boat. Give yourself some grace! Sending prayers for you.

  16. I hear you Ada, its a struggle! I dont have little ones anymore, but with working a full time job, blogging and dealing with shoulder issue...blogging is getting to be so hard. I am sending up some prayers for you! Your sunnies are so cute and the boots too!

  18. Millennial pink is such a great color, I heart this monochrome take on it!
    Blogging in addition to real life responsibilities is very challenging, sometimes it most definitely has to take a backseat to other priorities!
    Whenever I am in the thick of a personal storm, I try to remember that every storm has an ending.

  21. It's okay to vent, and we always do pile so much on our plates then wonder why we have no time! At least you've got a backlog of outfits so when you have the time to blog, you've got content ready. (and we all complain about the weather, it's our favorite pastime.

  36. This spring has been a bummer! I am thankful it's warming up here in Indiana. Michigan is a different story. I have a friend north of Grand Rapids and they had snow! (!) lots of snow during spring break. UGH!

    With the advent of influencers and need to post everyday With highpaying content - the "real bloggers" who share real life are getting pushed to the side. Keep doing what you're doing. If you need a break, it's ok. We are on the same boat. Blogging is a hobby for me. If I don't post (like last week), I forgive myself. I have LOTS of outfits to post but I am fine if it's summer and I am still posting winter outfits! hahaha probably not but you know what I mean.

    Take care!
    I am praying for you!

  37. You're looking so pretty in pale pink! Sorry to hear of some bad days. Please take care of yourself, and put yourself and family first - blogging is one thing that can wait, yeah?

  38. I adore this shade of pink, especially for suits.
