Thursday Moda #155: Love, Work and School.

I cannot believe it has been 155 weeks of Thursday Moda guys. As a matter of fact, the very first outfit I wore, I also had on a short skirt and the background behind me was white and snowy, just like in today's post. You all know I love my short skirts and my minis. After all, my legs are not so awful-looking, no?! But back to the Thursday Moda Linkup -- I cannot believe 3 years have gone by and in all honesty I have no idea how fast all this time has flied and how MUCH my life has changed in the last 3 years, especially on a personal level. Now that is is almost the end of February, I cannot help but think how fast 2019 is flying by, already. During the same time I introduced Thursday Moda three years ago, I also presented you guys with a brand-new look of my blog. Truth is I am ready for a new update and upgrade so if you have recommendations about a blog designer you love, send them my way. =) Thank you in advance.

LOVE,  WORK  AND  SCHOOL.
Vivian and I are back together today and I must say we look mighty stylish. Now, how do our outfits connect to love, work and school, you say?! Well, I wore this outfit to work yesterday and since Vivian was off from school due to her Mid-Winter Break, I took her with me to work. She was an angel as usual. She has such a fun time doing her thing: drawing, painting, writing, practicing her numbers and letters, reading, playing, etc. All my co-workers love her and treat her like the princess she is. They smile because of her and her beautiful personality and they especially love her seeing dressed up, just like mama. Coincidentally enough Vivian and I wore these exact outfits a few days before Valentine's Day when I volunteered (worked) at her school, one day. Vivian and her friends were learning about love, friendship, family, siblings, friends, sharing+caring and Valentine's day the day I volunteered, and for that day all the kids were suggested to wear something red. Since I had a red dress planned for Vivian to wear on the actual Valentine's day, I decided for this Gorgeous Mustard Dress paired with some pink and red. Those Gorgeous Velvet Pom Pom Mary Janes of Vivian's matched the red heart knees of her Pink Knit Tights perfectly. The beautiful dress also had a velvet navy bow collar which made Viv's outfit further romantic and so cute for Valentine's festivities. Vivian's entire outfit comes from Target, by the way. I too had a hint of Valentine's day with all the white I am wearing (skirt and booties). Vivian loved our outfits so much that she wanted us to wear them again, especially since the first time around - when I volunteered at her school, we had no time at all early in the morning (as we scrap for time and lost minutes) to snap any photos at all. I did take some pictures of her in her class though, by herself, with her teacher, with her friends. So, since we had plenty of time to get dressed the other day for my job and Vivian wanted to look extra pretty, we decided to re-wear our Beautiful Mommy and Daughter Stylish Outfits that we both happened to love! And this time around we didn't miss taking some photos, too. =)

My outfit is not as colorful or as fun as Vivian's but it is put-together, chic, casual yet dressy with pretty neutral colors: white, taupe and black. These colors paired so well together. And I must say also that my Tweedy White+Black Wrap Mini Skirt paired so well with this mushroom/taupe sweater though it is a Wrap-Style Cardigan too. Also my taupe sunnies matched the sweater perfectly. My skirt, cardigan sweater and sunglasses are all by Loft. I decided to do a slight mixing of textures and patterns with my Diamond-Patterned Black Tights (by The Limited) and my Shimmery Faux Suede White Boots (from Target) and it all was pulled together with pretty makeup highlighted by a Pretty Pink Lipstick and Millennial Pink Crispin Drop Earrings by Sugarfix via BaubleBar (from Target). I think white is such a pretty color to wear at Wintertime. Difficult to wear during the Winter sometime, but not impossible. For one it can get dirty easily. Secondly, Winter is best for dark colors and dark neutrals. But let's face it: white represents Winter and white is also the color of the snow. I am also wearing white today in remembrance of all the innocent lives (students, teachers and more) that have been lost in school shootings. Some very stylish ladies and teachers of Instagram have different prompts this week for teachers and anyone really and you can find what everyone is wearing and sharing on Instagram under the hashtag #spiritweek4teachersofinstagram . I decided to do a couple of these prompts for so many reasons. First of all I love fashion. I love putting together cute outfits each day. I also love fashion challenges. And I am a mom who has a child in school. I have the school spirit because I am a mom. Plus, I too taught for several years (English and ESL) during my time in Albania, and I was a tutor at a school district nearby for several years on and off, here in Michigan. But, if you pay close attention to my outfit, I also wore a Sea Pearl Pave White Cocktail Ring so between my mini skirt, my boots and my ring I have on 3 'pieces of white'. I am also glad that our lovely Winter Wonderland type of weather was the perfect backdrop for this mostly-white outfit. What do you think?! Do you wear short skirts for Winter?! If so, how do you style them?! Are you wearing white this Winter?! I'd love to know what you think. =)




Last week the linkup was light and I think that is a lot due to the new InLinkz that no one seems to like. =( But despite the linkup being light in links, you all showed your very festive Valentine's Style, therefore there was a lot of red and pink, especially red, that was worn. And man how much I love red. Heck, every outfit I am featuring below has a splash, a dose, or a huge pop of red in it. There were also lots of heart-themed tops and sweaters not just the two heart pieces you see below. Also, the ladies nailed it with their stunning footwear. Can I have a pair of each of the shoes below, please?!

I adore Di's work style. She wished her readers 'Happy Valentine's Week' in her latest post of three lovely outfits including this darling red pleated midi skirt and tucked-in red heart sweater. LOVE!
I loved Elise's outfit which reminded me of my own burgundy velvet booties and polka dot black pants I shared a couple of weeks, ago. Her own version of 'Polka Dots' can go from the office to date night, just like that!
Elizabeth looked posh in her 'Valentine Date Night' look. I love a good wrap blouse and hers is in a leopard red, what?!
Carmen shared about her 'Birthday Adventure' in an island, a post complete with beautiful photos, some snow, thrift shopping and her gorgeous red+pink heart sweater.
Kathrine's 'Valentine's Day Striped Top' had an unique ruffled mock neck and matchy sleeves. So romantic and darling. Plus I happen to love pairing red with cognac and pink with white.
But my favorite look of the entire week belonged to the always-stylish Debbie. She created a monochromatic, red-hot outfit around her 'Red Sweater'. In love with her grand coat, those stunning velvet booties and slinky lace skirt. Gorgeous Babe!

  13. Awww such a sweet look and outfit for your little princess. Love the hearts on her pink tights! It's so awesome too that she can preoccupy herself. That's something I am working on with my little guy. Love your belted sweater, the color may not be bright but it is still so pretty in it's own right. I don't wear a lot of skirts. If it's not part of a dress, I won't wear it! Happy Friday Ada and wishing you a fabulous weekend ahead!

  14. 1/6 of the year is already gone and the years continue to go by as well. Our children change, we change and of course our style changes. The memories that you and V. create together will always be there and that's a blessing, isn't it? I love this neutral outfit that you've created and how professional it looks.
