Thursday Moda #68: Tropical Print Dresses (Look 8).

Happy Thursday Guys! Today's post is all about Tropical Prints: I am wearing a Leaf-Print Dress and Vivian is wearing a Watermelon-Print Ruffled Top. We both accessorized with Fun Floppy Hats accented with Pink Ribbons and Bejeweled Sandals. And let's face it, as much as you came to see my outfit today, it is Vivian who is stealing the show (as always). She is just lovely and adorable!

Speaking of lovely, today my co-host is the ever lovely, always put together and stylish blogger babe ROXANNE of Glass of Glam, who I have the honor to be my co-host for the third time since I started my linkup. It has been over a year since we 'met' through blogging and we have become good friends and pen pals. Roxanne's blog is amazing: full of gorgeous outfits, beautiful photography and fun lifestyle posts. Today we are both styling Tropical Print Dresses and coincidentally they are both Leaf-Print V-neck Dresses, also coincidentally we both styled them casually. Though I chose my super colorful beaded + pom pom sandals while she chose matching green palm print sneakers. I love the fresh golden orange sunflowers that Roxanne is carrying. She is such a stylish everyday woman on the go. As far as my own wrap-style dress (part of the dresses in my capsule wardrobe), I also accessorized it with Ombre Pink Crispin Earrings and a Floppy Hat that has a cute little chiffon pink bow. Funny story about the hat: my brother included the hat as one of the presents in my daughter's Easter basket this year but it was huge on her little head. I did buy her a nude straw floppy hat though which says "Life is Sweet" (worn in her outfit today) and it is the most adorable and the prettiest hat (from Gymboree). Are you wearing any tropical prints this Summer?! How do you wear them?!

That gorgeous little face with the fuchsia pink lipstick she applied on her own (she loves bright lipsticks).  Ahhh she is so beautiful and look at those long lashes! We wore these outfits on Tuesday morning and I snapped some photos and videos of the fun we were having for Instagram stories. You may also gotten a sneak peak of the photos on my Instagram or Facebook.
Don't Roxanne's rose-colored sunnies and the floral frames of my Sunglasses make the perfect pairs of sunglasses for our tropical dresses?! And look the style of her rose gold earrings is similar to my own ball drop earrings (also in pink).
Neutral Woven Floppy Hat w/ Light Pink Chiffon Bow: Gifted from my Brother (quite similar w/ black bow, Huge Steal, love this), (similar, Steal, my Favorite), (similar, love this), (similar, love this).
Black Floral, Wayfarer Style Sunglasses: c/o Glasses Attack from Albania (similar, Steal), (similar, Fantastic Deal, love these), (very similar, Great Deal), (similar, Splurge, my Favorite).
Pink Ombre Crispin "Pom Pom" Statement Earrings: Francesca's (New) (similar, on Sale, love these), (similar in pink+orange, Great Deal, my Favorite), (similar, Small Splurge).
Clear Glass Pink Beaded Stretchy Bracelet: My Daughter's.
Pink+White Plastic Spring Ponytail Holder/Bracelet: Meijer's.
Bright Pink Matte Colour Riche Collection Lipstick: L'Oreal Exclusive "Liya's Pink" (identical, Huge Steal + I love it!!), (similar, Great Deal), (similar, Small Splurge, my Favorite).

Vivian's Outfit:
Navy Blue Ruffled Tank w/ Watermelon Print: Old Navy (New).
Dark Denim Shorts: Osh Kosh.
Neutral/Nude "Life is Sweet" Floppy Hat: Gymboree (New).
Navy Blue Large Chiffon Bow Barrette w/ Pink Polka Dots: c/o an Albanian Boutique.
Black Thong Sandals w/ Multi-Colored Crystals: Wal Mart (New).

You all loved my French-themed Outfits last week and the votes were about 50/50 as some of you preferred the dressier look and some the casual one. Today I am featuring five beautiful 30+ ladies and mamas and what can I say I am loving blue and yellow this Summer, if you cannot tell. Oh and I love a good floppy hat, as these ladies show they do, too.
Dressed 'For the Classroom' Virginia features the most beautiful rainbow-colored midi skirt and shows that a denim jacket is always in style. And girlfriend I love those nude sandals - I own them too.
Deena, one of the stylish ladies behind the 'The Blended Blog', shimmies into the prettiest daffodil dress in the perfect midi length. Love that it has sleeves.
Nicole shares her 'Resort Vacation' style by mixing three pieces patterned in blue and no that is not a skirt. I love the striped mesh hat and gorgeous wooden watch.
Becky also shows 'Touches of Tropical' by dressing up a dark-wash chambray dress. Her clutch and necklace are the cutest.
Rachael styles the 'Gingham Peplum Top' of the moment with skinny denim, nude wedges, tan tote with fresh flowers peeking through and such a pretty floppy hat.
