Thursday Moda #29: Fall Florals and Jewel Tones.

 Welcome to a new Thursday Moda. It is all about Fall Florals and Jewel Tones today. My lovely co-host SHELBEE from Shelbee on the Edge and I are styling Pretty, Long-Sleeve Floral Blouses paired with Jewel Tones. She has those Beautiful Wine Booties on plus a Deep Purple Statement Necklace (that pick up the purple from the blouse) and I have an Emerald Necklace matched with Emerald Earrings to offset all the Navy in my outfit. And I have on this awesome jewel-toned lipstick. Shelbee is a mom like myself and she has a fun-named "On The Edge" Fashion linkup on Fridays so make sure you join her, too.

We have had some cool days here last week (though it warmed up again, now). I wore this Outfit to work mixing this Floral See-Through Navy Tunic (the flowers are periwinkle with red and lime) with a Navy Textured Jacquard Wrap Mini Skirt in an oversized houndstooth print. Those Kendra Scott earrings and long necklace paired so well though the green shade is not quite the same. I added some metallic pieces with my Gold Bow Leather Headband, the Pink Metallic Sparkly Pumps and my Rose-Gold Soft Leather Clutch. I wore this outfit to work and I drink my coffee outside in the porch, a lot of times before leaving. Viv wanted to pose with me. Coincidentally she had a Navy Floral Tee and she even wanted a shoe shot, because she said her Sparkly Pink Sneakers matched mommy's Sparkly Pink Shoes. She was right. Have you styled a Floral Long Sleeve Blouse lately? Are you welcoming Fall Florals and Jewel Tones?

This week's featured bloggers have it all: florals, stripes, bold colors, maxis, navy (I love navy), pretty shoes, gorgeous jewelry, leather, Fall layers and much more. It is hard choosing 4-5 favorites each week, let me tell you. There were 110 linkups last week. I hope you draw inspiration from them like I did.
Today's featured blogger is LEE from Wine and Couture who rocked this layered early Fall look, perfect for a Rock Concert where she wore it too. And look at that amazing jewelry - the set of bracelets, earrings and necklace is gorgeous. Lee has an awesome style blog and we have become friends the last few months too. This woman knows how to dress and makes me want to buy some leather black shorts and a leather black backpack to style them like she did. I even have similar slingback open-toe booties. Hands down my most favorite outfit of last week.

Carrie shares "Rose Gold & Fall Favorites" in an Autumn-hued Outfit. Love how she knotted her maxi skirt, which looks great with the Suede Booties.
Amy Ann has been wearing lots of "Dressy Maternity Wear" with this Navy Crochet Dress being one of my recent favorites and I adore her Gold Slides.
Cindy is the most colorful and super stylish in a "NYC Brunch" with her Girly Floral Skater Dress and those Stunning Ombre Dotted Pumps.
Nancy's "Bird Print Tee" in Olive Green is perfect for Fall especially with Black and a pair of BF Jeans. Love those shoes and clutch.
Ruth is a Gorgeous "Lady in Red" in this Wine Red Maxi Dress fall-ified with a Black Leather Jacket.

Today's Thursday Moda Co-Host: Shelbee on the Edge.
Shelbee has been rocking some awesome Black+White Outfits lately. Below are some of my favorites. I love all of her sandals.
From Shelbee's Mouth:
"My name is Shelbee and I write the blog Shelbee on the Edge (  I am super excited to join Ada this week as co-host!  I am an over 40 stay-at-home mother of two boys and two cats named Dave and Frankie.  I also am an Army wife.  My blog provides a welcoming forum for like-minded women and mothers to stop by to give and receive support and helpful insights into surviving this crazy, beautiful life. I discuss topics such as Army life, parenting, fashion and style, and mental health. In my little space, you are free to express yourself without judgments and showcase your own unique style without fear. Here’s hoping we can all find our own individual voices in each area of our lives. While I may teeter on the brink of sanity (and midlife), I still find ways to hang on and feel fabulous in the process! Please stop by for a bit and feel inspired!

Also linking with Ana Luiza and Michelle for their "Start Off Stylish" Linkup.
Lastly, linking with the ladies of "The Blended Blog".

  45. Liquid synthetic urine will come with a concentrated liquid base, while the powdered version will come with dehydrated urine powder that is mixed with water to create a urine-like consistency. Usually, the included ingredients and compounds are very similar, with the main difference lying in the consistency. It is also critical to avoid all skin-to-skin contact with anyone who has consumed cannabis. There is always the possibility that this type of contact will transfer weed metabolites to the hair follicles. Nothing works better than letting it run its natural course. So, if you have more than 30 days before the test, this method is the best for you.
