Thursday Moda #8 and Festival-Inspired.

Welcome to Thursday Moda #8. I cannot believe it has been almost two full months since I started this linkup and it has been going quite well so far, with over 80 entries since the second week, which is nice. Thank you to all of you who have linked up in the past and continue to do so. 

I am so happy I am in much more Spring-like wear today as compared to last Thursday. I gladly traded a Wool Beanie for a Fedora, a Warm Fur Shearling Vest for a Light Utility Jacket, a Long-Sleeve Sweater Dress layered with a Fur Snood with a Light Linen Sleeveless Dress layered with a Necklace and Thick Tights for Bare Legs. And then I saw my outfit (from today) and it didn't hit me until later that it is totally festival-inspired which is so suitable since Coachella is happening this month and I think this outfit is so proper for Coachella, don't you think? I mentioned just a couple of days ago my love for Old Navy's Spring 2016 line and I mentioned how I had bought a lot of new pieces from them. This Ivory/Off-White Linen Dress with the Lace Yoke on the neckline is one of several I got. Between the doily-looking lace, my suede fringe bag, the fringe necklace, the dangling statement earrings, the fedora and the lace-up/ghilly flats I am ready to go to Coachella if I wished or if I could, what do you think? I loved how effortless all these neutrals looked together too. The Ivory worked so well paired with the shades of Khaki, Olive and Camel. Also, stay tuned because on Tuesday I will have another Festival-inspired Look featuring another Dress from Old Navy and then on Thursday (a week from today) I will show you how I style my Lace Yoke Blouse.

The Accessories:
Camel/Cognac Faux Suede Ghilly Flats: Mossimo via Target (New) (similar, Splurge, love these), (similar, Great Deal, my Favorite), (similar, Steal).

Last week there were over 90 entries for Thursday Moda so thank you all for making it pretty successful. Once again I went back and forth about who to feature and what were my favorite looks. Besides adorable outfits with lots of pretty florals and pretty Spring dresses I noticed that everyone's shoe game was on point. I also noticed some Bohemian styles that had my heart.
Today's Featured Blogger is Amy Ann from Straight A Style. She linked not one but three very pretty floral dresses (here and here). Each of them had a beautiful floral print and all of them were a little 70's inspired. Amy Ann styled them so well too - a little Bohemian and a lot Chic. Each pair of shoes were gorgeous and I fell in love with both Cream Crossbody Bags she showed us with her Lovely Dresses. Plus her hair, makeup and poses were flawless. Amy Ann's name blog couldn't be more suited for her. If style was a school subject she would always get Straight A's. She has a to-die-for collection of dresses and shoes too, a very modelesque, tall+slender figure and even has the model poses down to a T. Hands down her blog is one of my top 5 favorites and a daily read for me. She is a very successful blogger who has collaborated with many great brands and designers, too. If you don't yet follow her, you are missing out.

Rachel's post featured a 'Khaki Dress and Useful Bags' and since her dress is Olive and a Shirtdress style plus she paired it with Leopard and Black, of course I fell in love.
Shelly showed her 'Romper Love' in this Floral Beauty which she styled casually and dressy. The dressy look was my favorite of the two.
Sheela wrote about 'My Bubble' and proved she is a fashionista in this Unique Striped Dress paired with a Gorgeous Floral Yellow Clutch and Fierce Shoes.

P.S. Linking up with Adri + Jessica, Alice, Ana Luiza with Michelle, Annie, Brooke with Erica, Carrie with Jill, Christie, Claire, Dawn, Grace, Elle with Jacqueline, Heather, Jalynn,


And now join the linkup!

  39. Hello. I am so glad that I stopped by your blog. I love those shoes!!!! Now I am thinking I need them not only in black (which I currently own) but possibly in a brown/tan color. They go so well with your pretty white dress. I love the details in the neckline. Looking very spring and ready to go. Glad I stopped by.

  40. I love this post Ada!! I definitely can sense the Coachella vibe and I would love to go there some day as well! The Kendra Scott earrings will be on my neck Rocksbox request list and I need to get to Target to see if they have those shoes still in stock! Old Navy will also be on my list for tomorrow! Way to inspire!!!
