Thursday Moda #23 and Comfortable Green Dresses.
Welcome back to Thursday - my Favorite Fashion Day of the week. This week's co-host is fellow Michigander Mom Blogger JAYMIE from Shop My Closet whom I'd like to think I have plenty in common with. Today, we styled Breathable, Comfortable Green Dresses. Mine is a Midi Olive Green one and Jaymie's is a Maxi Kelly Green one. When we both chose the prompt for this week's Thursday Moda, we decided on Comfortable, Casual Everyday Cotton Dresses. Well, great minds think alike because I was happily surprised to see her in a Green Dress and that was a coincidence. Jaymie's style is similar to mine in the Summertime because we both wear and love lots of Maxis, Comfy Dresses, Rompers, Flat Sandals, Gladiator Sandals and a good glass of wine. I actually think Jaymie's best and her own unique accessory is usually a drink in her hand. She also runs her own Fashion Linkup on Fridays so be sure to join her. =)
When you have an Easy Dress in a favorite color, just add a Fun Floppy Hat to keep away the sun and you are golden for a casual Summer day. Plus I love how Olive Green pairs with Navy - gotta try this again.
I just love these close-up pictures of us. We are smiling with our eyes. Jaymie's beautiful, bright green eyes match her Kelly Green Dress. =) And my own eyes are in an earthy green color like olive or hazel-green.

With a few over 100 outfits linked up last week, Thursday Moda continues to go strong. For this week's favorites I was attracted to chic and always stylish black+white looks and some pretty florals. I always love a flower dress and the maxi I have featured today is a stunner!
Today's Featured Blogger is LINDSAY AVA from Stiletto in the Cloud (love that name for a blog, by the way), who is a British Blogger and Vet Student, currently living and blogging out of Austria. She linked up this Modern and Sexy Outfit in head to toe black with pops of White (Stunning Sexy Pumps) and that Beautiful Floral Silk Scarf tied in the most delicate and feminine way - like a big bow on the back. Love it! Lindsay Ava's style is Modern, Euro-Chic, Monochromatic and Minimalistic. She always rocks Black and White (like today) and it helps that she looks like a model. On top of it all, she has gorgeous long legs. The icing on the cake for me besides the lovely bow, was the simple top-knot on her hair. This look is an A+ overall.
Roxanne styled ' A Striped Blouse as a Crop Top' with the perfect fedora and gorgeous pastel mint saddle bag. And I love her nude sandals, I own very similar ones.
Karen is a bouquet of pinks and blues as 'She Wore Floral' with some pretty, dressy nude sandals. The pink necklace and blue bag were a nice match.
Alison is always stylish in her 'Culottes Outfit' styled to modern perfection and ultimately elegant. Love those ankle-strap leopard stilettos.
Abigail is in 'Full Bloom' with her explosion of white roses over a bright cobalt backdrop. That halter maxi dress is stunning and a steal, too.
Today's Co-Host: Shop My Closet (by Jaymie Ashcraft).
Love Jaymie's Casual Style and her remixing (awesome gladiator sandals and aviator sunnies) and as I said she loves posing with a cocktail at hand. Here are a few of my recent favorites of hers - way to rock a vest or two for Summer!
