Thursday Moda #48: Layering Plaid for Winter.
Happy Thursday Moda, the last Thursday of January, to. What?! I had originally planned to post my New Year's Eve Outfit today and then I thought about posting another outfit. But none of those photos were edited. So today you get the third option. Third time is the charm.
Today you get to see my Navy/Cream/Burgundy Plaid Flannel Shirtdress from Target again, albeit worn a lot more casually than the last time I wore it - and looking at those photos my hair has grown at least an inch longer. I wore this last Friday, the day after Vivian's birthday on a little Mommy+Daughter date we had, first to McDonald's for a happy meal for her and later to Starbucks for me. Do you guys follow me on Insta Stories?! I post some of our daily adventures in there. =) I layered the dress with Black Leggings, Red Patterned Socks that peek thru from the open sides of my Olive Booties, my New Light Down, Black Coat on top and jazzed it up with some Sparkly Jewelry. I love how it came out and the addition of the socks looked cute! What do you think?!

There were over 80 of you that linked up last week. I saw many scarves, coats, boots, moto jackets and comfortable but chic outfits that are perfect for January. As usual narrowing it down to a few favorites was hard. And it looks like "Greenery" is a popular color for bloggers this year, though everyone still loves Cobalt Blue, too.
This week's Featured Blogger is ADRIELE from Style Assisted, an elegant mom blogger who recently chopped her raven hair into a gorgeous long bob. I loved her green coat ensemble so much and it is a coat I would buy and wear in a heartbeat. Ditto for the sweater, OTK boots, tote and necklace. This is the perfect polished outfit for a mom on the go, especially a busy toddler mom like Adriele. She has a little boy - Alexander. I love that on her blog, beautiful Adriele - whose name I love and it is a version of my own full name, Adriana - not only shares the most polished, elegant looks whether dressy, fancy, casual or in between, but also has tips, recipes, beauty and organizing posts, as well as lots of Mommy+Me posts with her son. There is something in her blog for everyone and I love mom blogs like hers. If you haven't already stop by and follow her.
Megan shared an uniquely-striped 'Printed Dress' in her Weekly Style Edit post. While the dress is fun, I am dying over the black pieces she paired it with: the moto jacket and those fun multi-strap pumps.
Chichi makes 'A Chic Style Statement' with her gorgeous buffalo plaid navy+red coat, those cropped fringe jeans which I love and some stunning mid-calf nude boots.
Kristina in her 'Little Pink Skirt' shows us that you can wear a tiny mini for Winter if you have the right coat and tights with it. I am always a fan of gray with blush pink.
Katie's silver loafers, large dotted skirt, pink clutch, embellished shirt and especially her 'Zebra Parade' green sweater which I am dying to own myself, are all very pretty. It all looks so vibrant and fun together.
