Thursday Moda #16 and a Mosaic Bright Dress.

Welcome to another Thursday, another dress day featuring yet another bright-colored dress and of course it is linkup day so join my linkup below. Today's co-host is MONICA from Jersey Girl, Texan Heart. I have followed Monica's blog for a while now and I just love her blog. She was part of my Special Blog Birthday Party Post both last year and this year. Monica's style is fun, bold, creative and a little country. She is not afraid to try many different styles (as the collage on the bottom of this post, also shows) and she is even less afraid to try different hair-styles, hairdos and haircuts. Whether blonde, brunette or redhead, with long, medium-length or short hair Monica looks great. And she rocks a pair of Cowgirl Boots. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays she usually posts her outfits, Mondays it is all about nails - this girl's nails always look so fun, girly, bright and colorful, you should check out her tutorials - on Thursdays she shows different fun DIY's like one of her gorgeous decorative mason jars she also sells on Etsy, and on Fridays she recaps us with a list of favorites or what she is up to lately. Monica runs a fashion linkup on Wednesdays and a Weekend Favorites Linkup on Fridays. Make sure you follow her and linkup with her too. Not only is she beautiful and stylish, she is also very talented and artistic.

I just recently bought this cute+little Girly Mosaic Dress and I couldn't be happier. Flutter sleeves, ruffles, bell sleeves, bohemian styles and babydoll dresses are so IN this Summer and this dress intermixes them all. Plus I love the fun bright pattern. It is like a fun mosaic mixing a smaller pattern with a larger one. Of course the dress is bursting with pinks and purples but it also has white, orange, turquoise, black and navy on it. I decided to bring out the blues by pairing it with my Navy Panama Hat, Navy Crossbody Saddle Bag and a couple of Blue Enamel Bangles. But I also brought out the White by pairing it with Cream Sandals and my Pearl Earrings and Ivory Bangle. Since the dress reads Girly-Boho, I chose my New Studded Ivory Fringe Block-Heel Sandals and the Hat to capitalize on the Bohemian effect, head to toe. I got so many compliments that day, mostly on my dress but also on my shoes, hat and necklace. Do you own a bright dress in a fun mosaic or geometric pattern? How have you worn it this Summer?

So many gorgeous outfits for Summer last week. All the 5 bloggers featured, have on my favorite outfits linked last week. While each outfit is very pretty, every outfit is also very different and unique. But I did see a few things in common that attracted me last week such as yellow, floppy hats, lace-up shoes, tulip skirts and silky scarves tied into bows.
This week's featured blogger is MARY from Mary Murane who linked up not one but two gorgeous looks with whom I fell in love. First this Crochet Yellow Floral Midi Dress is stunning and dreamy, especially paired with a classic woven floppy hat and nude laceup heels. Even the yellow floral trees behind her match the pretty dress. Secondly, a Monochromatic Blue Look features several trends like peplum, pom-poms and flat-form laceup sandals and is so modern and fresh. Mary is a woman of certain age with class and elegance from the tip of her toes to her gorgeous long blonde hair. She owns so many gorgeous clothes and every outfit is sophisticated while every photo shoot is beautifully curated. Make sure you stop by her blog if you haven't already. On top of being a fashionista, Mary is super sweet.

Chioma does Red, White and Blue (with a pop of Yellow) her own way by mixing an 'Eyelet Top + Head-Wrap' - I just love that big bow scarf wrapped pretty on top of her hair.
Kathrine is 'Wrapped Up in Black and White' in the prettiest, easy-breezy Hi-Lo Maxi. I love her hat - which was a steal - and her sandals, too.
Osy always wears 'Wraps and Prints' beautifully. Her Silver+Lavender Brocade Tulip Midi Skirt is the most stunning skirt there is.
Meagan shows her 'French Style' in the most elegant way. The crops with a blazer have never looked better and the addition of the kerchief neck scarf is modern.

Thursday Moda Co-Host: Jersey Girl, Texan Heart.
Here are a few of my co host's recent looks which I love. I told you she rocks Cowgirl Boots and she looks great in white. Speaking of shoes, she DIY-ed those Adorable Pom Pom Sandals.
From Monica's Mouth:
"Hey Y'all!  My name is Monica and I blog over at Jersey Girl, Texan Heart.  I write a little bit about everything, but for today's post I'm talking about how to style your hair with NO HEAT!  Yes, you read that right.  I have thin hair so unfortunately if I straighten it once you can tell.  So, since it's summer and I just recently cut my hair I wanted to show a way to style hair without heat.  Thank you Ada for letting me co-host with you! Instagram Twitter Facebook"
