Thursday Moda #4 and Lace-up Blouse.

Happy Thursday Everyone!
Is it just Michigan or is it rainy and cold where you live? Spring is so unpredictable and never makes up its mind. It is safe to assume Spring is a female, lol. Anyhow, I wore this Outfit exactly a week ago for St. Patrick's day to work. All 16 of us were wearing some Green. I wore my new Green Worthington Pants and paired them with this new Off-White Laceup Shirt which is a Popover. I am so happy I purchased this shirt at Express, I would love to own it in black and if they make it, I would also love it in a fun pattern. While this blouse received some compliments, it was my Leopard Smoking Flats that got all the compliments. These shoes are cute, well-made and have tassels - not bad for 20 bucks. And I happen to love Kelly Green paired with Leopard, even better if you throw some Bright Orange on top. I also did an Olive Green Jacket on top. I kept my makeup very simple with an almost nude Revlon lipstick, black mascara and a taupe skinny eye liner. Do you own a pair of Bright Pants for Spring?

Last week were over 90 entries for the "Thursday Moda" Linkup, not bad for its third week. Unfortunately, on accident, I only kept the linkup open for three days. It was a mistake on my part, I think there would have been more pretty outfits linked. And there were many pretty outfits. So many of you have Spring in mind. I had such a hard time choosing my favorites. Thank you for linking up in the past few weeks and please spread the word about the linkup. Thank you!

This week's featured blogger is Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine. Her bright green outfit was fun, cheerful and oh-so-pretty. I haven't seen a prettier outfit for St. Patrick's day and most of those pieces are from Old Navy, too. I am dying over her wedge sandals and the gingham camisole is too cute. Andrea always puts together elegant outfits that are on the more casual side. She rocks skinny jeans and pretty jewelry. But her blog also has amazing dessert and cake recipes and she does a "Friday Favorites" post on Fridays which I love. On Wednesdays, along another dozen ladies, she does a themed linkup called "Style Perspectives". You can join the current one if you like. Andrea is not only very stylish but also a sweetheart, make sure you follow her.

Marly, I 'Pinky Swear' I love this combination of Rose Quartz with Navy. The soft shorts and bow-tie blouse are gorgeous together.
Rachel is wearing the ever-classic 'Denim Jacket' with a gray midi skirt and the most adorable snakeskin flats.
Tamara is wearing the perfect 'Spring Shirt Dress' in such a pretty periwinkle blue.

P.S. Linking up with Adri + Jessica, Alice, Ana Luiza with Michelle, Brooke with Erica, Carrie with Jill, Christie, Claire, Dawn, Grace, Elle with Jacqueline, Jalynn,
Also linking up with the ladies of The Blended Blog.

And now join the linkup!

  25. I don't own a single pair of coloured pants myself, Ada :) but I intend to purchase several pairs of floral pants soon. Going from wearing only black to now championing the rainbow cause has affected my wallet quite a bit, ahem xo
