Thursday Moda #137: Millenial Pink (Again), Red and a Little Gingham Cutie.

If you follow me on Instagram (please do, if you don't already and I really appreciate it), you already know from my latest post that our temperatures dropped, they dropped a lot. This week has been freezing. Mornings and nights are as low as 35-38 degrees and during the day 44 degrees has been the highest but very windy which makes it feel a lot colder. It is funny how last week during Thursday Moda I blogged my short-sleeve tweed dress which I styled with no tights (as is) last Tuesday when I wore it - when it was 82 degrees - while the day I wore this outfit coats were a must as our temps were cut in half. That is Michigan for you. I am not surprised though as it is already half-way through October AND even some states like Texas had some cities experience temps in the high 30s and low 40s. Plus, it has already snowed in some areas in America.

Just like yesterday's post today I am continuing to wear Millennial Pink because I love it and I am obsessed with it, in particular my Land's End Down Coat I scored at the end of the season this Spring. I will keep my eye out for some great, well-made Land's End pieces for me and Vivian when Sears closes their stores and does some amazing sales. I feel bad for Sears going bankrupt but I love Land's End which they carry. I wore this coat a lot during Spring too from March through early May. It is super warm and super soft, not too puffy, perfectly-chic, very light and the right tunic length which means it covers the butt. It also keeps you very warm and because of the super soft pink color I say it goes with anything! I went monochromatic on top with a matchy Dusty Pink Cashmere-Blend Sweater by Ann Taylor also purchased at the end of the season, in early Spring this year. I love the ruffle on the sleeves. I decided to wear my soft pinks with bright reds this time around so I chose my Red Rose Pixie Pants by Old Navy. I just love these red floral pants and though they may only been blogged once more, I have worn them at least 4-5 times this year alone. Vivian has a matching pair she has worn with me a couple of times. I also wore my Beautiful Red+Black Lace Soft Leather Oxford Shoes I have purchased in Albania when living there. And the pop of black through the shoes matched my Black Leather Bag from Express. But wait: there is one more pink item - my sunglasses. They are like a pretty mauve color and I love the oversized shape and they are by Ann Taylor. Both Ann Taylor and Loft have great and well-made sunglasses.

I share most if not all of Vivian's school outfits via my Instagram Stories. I even have a hashtag for her: #whatvivianworetoschool . She is my mini fashionista, so follow us! 

Vivian usually takes the bus to school but sometimes like once or twice a week I drop her off to school before going to work. This was one of those days. My Sweetie wore this Beautifully-Embroidered Red Gingham Dress courtesy of a children's boutique, paired with Shimmery Grey Leggings and her Adorable Burgundy Red Boots (they have bows on the back) from Cat+Jack via Target. I didn't realize till we snapped photos that we were coordinated perfectly together. My little girl is definitely a Gingham Cutie and she will be once again this upcoming Halloween because she will be Dorothy from Wizzard of Oz and for her sake I hope the temps are no lower than 47-50 degrees. Fingers crossed!

Thank you for loving my modern and classic Tweed Sheath last week. I loved SO MANY of your outfits. If I can describe my favorites in a few words, I would choose: pretty skirts, leopard, pleats, sparkle, gorgeous pumps and polished looks. Check out the beauties below!
Alicia is elegantly 'Styling a Midi Skirt for Fall' with the right block-heel sandals and a sophisticated blouse tucked in, with an elegant peak of cleavage.
Fonda asked the question 'Is This Too Busy?' refering to her patter mixing between gingham and floral but I don't think so. It is still sophisticated, well-done and muted.
Laura has on the prettiest 'Pink Pleated Skirt' and reminds me to get out my own like it. Love it with the front-tie floral blouse and her gorgeous pumps.
'Day to Night Elegant Pieces' in beautiful and yummy neutrals are the norm for the always classic Laurie. Her skirt and blouse are works of art in fashion!
'Gender Reveal'?! Hahaha, you got to read Ashley's post to see why and how she styled the most beautiful, striped two-piece culotte outfit in pastel shades. I love it!
Birthday Girl Monica shared her 'Birthday Outfit' staying true to her style with edge and feminity mixed in. Love that skirt which will be perfect for the holidays.


P.S. I just realized it is October 18th. With that said "Happy Birthday to my Brother!!"
