Thursday Moda #24 and Vacation-Dressed Beauties.
Welcome to another linkup week and my favorite Moda/Style/Fashion day of the week. I have been very very much MIA but I have a good reason, which I explained here. Today I am back with another Vacation OOTD (from our vacation a month ago), featuring two Lovely Dresses worn by my sweet Viv and I. I have been meaning to post these photos at least two weeks ago, but such is life. Better late than never I guess. What I love about these Dresses is that they can be dressed up, dressed down or in between - like Viv and I have done here. In case you are wondering the location of these photos is in some areas down-town Saint Joseph Michigan: the Carousel which Vivian loved and we took her in every night, the gorgeous water fountain, down-town Main Street by some of the shops and restaurants (where the beautiful Art Frogs and Bees were located, which Vivian loved kissing on the lips and sitting on) and some beautiful sculptures.
I got this dress right before our vacation at Target.com. It is from their Merona brand, in a thicker gauze-blend material. I love the tulip wrap style which also falls down the front creating the hi-lo length of the dress. The little tie around one of the shoulders is a nice little touch. I love the vivacious, bright orange color very much. It is like a cross between coral, red and orange and it is perfectly-bright for Summer. I only brought three pairs of sandals with me on Vacation. I was going to wear this Dress with my Blue Suede Two-Strap Slide Sandals (from this post) but my sweet Viv picked up these Red Wedges for me to wear cause she said they matched my Red Dress. When you have an adorable toddler choosing your clothes for you, you don't say no. I added my Gold Disc Earrings and put my hair in a low French bun for both comfort and style and voila! Miss Vivi is wearing her New Gorgeous Pink Floral+Stripes Dress from Gymboree with a Beautiful Bow Back, paired with her Favorite Summer Sandals and Favorite Bow at the moment (the Hot Pink Cupcake Bow). Doesn't she look adorable? I am so lucky God has blessed me and my family with such a beautiful princess. =)

Last week there were 100 fabulous ladies who linked up. I was attracted to Pretty Dresses, Rainbow Tassels, Crisp White and Burgundy with Navy Floral Prints - which would be perfect for the upcoming Fall season. As always, it was so hard narrowing down to my five favorites but I managed lol.
Today's Featured Blogger is ELISE from Sparkle and Slippers (don't you just love the name of her blog?!) who linked up not one but two pretty looks last week, but this White Summer Fiesta Outfit is definitely my favorite. A beautiful LWD with a Rainbow of Tassels and Pom Poms, I am 100% in. She paired it with Simple Nude Heeled Sandals, a Gold-Dipped Straw Clutch I have been admiring at H&M and Teal Tassel Earrings also from H&M (which I also own in an Eggplant Purple). Elise is one stunning mom for sure. Check out her blog for more daily style inspiration, sexy but chic mom looks and in case you are wondering how to style a jumpsuit or romper, since Elise has plenty of those and wears them flawlessly.
Rachael's 'Navy and Red Lace Dress' has the perfect texture, style, length, sleeves and beautiful two-tonal lace. The textured laced-up stilettos are perfect with it.
Nora's Ivory Eyelet Jacket is paired elegantly with a gorgeous taupe wrap skirt, classic camel bag and fun jewelry from her own collection.
It takes guts to wear an almost identical floral dress and blazer but Nicole gives life (by dyeing it) to her 'Old Wardrobe Favorites' in this fresh floral look, where even her pumps match.
Mary wears 'A Beautiful Blue' with a beautiful clutch and beautiful lace off-shoulder top. Those fluid trousers have one name for them: gorgeous.
F.Y.I. In case you missed it, the very stylish Lee guest posted for me yesterday. Don't miss out on the awesome watch giveaway we both have going on, in our blogs.
