Mommy+Mini Valentine: Pinks and Grays.
Finally, on the last day of February, I am posting the 5th Mommy+Mini Look inspired by Valentine's Day. Better late than never, right? We wore this for a day of shopping and a stop to McDonald's, on a Friday morning+early afternoon with Vivian. Though my dress is a Mauve shade of Pink and my Tights are a Dark (Marled) Gray, Vivian did coordinate with me with her Pink Sweatshirt Dress and Light Gray Ribbed (Knit) Skinny Pants.
You may remember this Hi-Lo Gray Sweater Dress which I have already styled/shown 3 times on the blog already. But IRL I have worn it at least half a dozen of times. On this post I mentioned I would get the Mauve version and I did. I ended up wearing it twice in February - it was a great color (also pretty subtle) for the month of love. Sometime in early February I picked up this Pretty Lace Choker in a Light Mauve Pink (from Express) and this Sweater Dress is the first one I styled it with - it is perfect for it. I love how it layered with the Dainty Gold Lariat Necklace. Also, just like I have styled my Gray Sweater Dress with Leggings or Thick Tights and these same Gray OTK Booties before, I did the same for this dress. But instead of Black Leggings (which were perfect for the gray dress), I opted for Gray Tights which paired with the Gray Boots in almost the same shade, therefore making my legs look even longer and better. Oh and in case you are wondering, Vivian accessorized her Pink with Leopard Graphic Sweatshirt+Tutu Dress with one of those infamous stickers from Target they gave her, on the day we wore these outfits while shopping there lol. What do you think of our Mommy+Me duo of outfits today? Hope you liked them and as always - thank you for stopping by.

Since Valentine's day was in February and it was the month of Love, I am continuing to spread the love this month and to wrap it up, in addition to our Mommy+Mini posts with Vivian and myself, I am featuring three mommy+daughter pairings that looked incredible last week, during my one year celebration of Thursday Moda. Their looks are different but equally fun and beautiful. All three of these ladies are super stylish moms and their toddler girls are taking after them. There will be more features I loved on tomorrow's Thursday Moda linkup too, so stay tuned. =)
Kileen and her gorgeous mini Mei, coordinated their Rose Quartz Dresses: Kileen's is lacy while Mei's has a whimsical pattern. In this post she also shared some awesome 'Valentine's Day Activities for Kids'.
Their 'Psychedelic Smiles' are precious as is Johanna's girl posing and twirling in her blue+green colorblocked dress. Love Jo's star-print shirtdress and it looks cool with the white Adidas.
Sandy and her daughter Vivian are matching head to toe, in their soft cream 'Floral Maxi Dresses' and camel boots. I love, love, love!
In March you will see a lot more pink and florals from Vivian and I to honor Spring but also lots of green for Saint Patrick's. =) Stay tuned!
