Thursday Moda #11 and Sneakers (plus Walmart).

Happy Thursday Everyone! Thank you to all of you who linked up last week and welcome to a whole new linkup. Today I have Pretty Neon Pink Chucks for you... and you won't believe where I got them.
...Wal Mart! Yes, Wal Mart - that is where my Pink Converse-like Sneakers are from and so is the rest of this Outfit minus the Jewelry and the Bag. The Bag is vintage, courtesy of my mom and the Jewelry is borrowed from one of my Rocksbox-es. I loved how the Bright Coral Leggings and the Hot Pink Chucks worked together. That Black Kimono has white embroidery and some fringe in it. I cannot recommend my leggings and t-shirt enough. The leggings are so well-made, pretty thick and not see-through and these scoop-neck t-shirts are made of soft 100% cotton. I love that they are a tunic length. My sneakers are actually from the girls department. I am blessed with small feet (I wear a 6.5) and my pair is a 4 in girls' sizes. Basically my entire Cute Outfit from Wal Mart is under 40 bucks. This is an example of mixing high and low since all the jewelry and the bag are designer pieces. Have you ever shopped for your clothes at Wal Mart? They do have adorable clothes for kids and toddlers there by the way - so I suggest you check them out. I rarely shop there for myself when it comes to clothes but I lucked out with all these.

This week's co-host is SHEA from Shea Lennon. We are both moms to very active toddlers who are just months apart in age and we are both showing our Casual Mom Sneaker (Spring) Style today. Shea will soon be adding another baby to her home, too. I have only discovered Shea's blog for about a year but I loved her blog so much I have even read several past posts. She has been blogging for over 6 years and hers is the perfect fashion and life-style blog. I love her everyday style. It is always chic even when she is dressed casually, like today. I have on Pink Chucks and she has on Neutral Slip-on Sneakers. She kept her outfit in neutral tones (love her utility olive vest) while I did add a huge dose of bright colors from the waist down. You should go by and say HI to Shea - you will love her cute blog!

Last week once again there were over 100 entries and many adorable Spring looks, especially dresses - as my top four favorites in this week's chosen also prove. So many pretty Spring dresses, so many hard decisions for this fashion-lover. Ultimately, here are this week's features:
This week's featured blogger is EMILY from Darling, Dearest. Emily linked up the prettiest Floral Paisley Dress which has the prettiest bright yet soft colors (IT colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity plus Lavender). The length of this dress is perfect and the sleeves are so romantic. You can dress it up like Emily did with her neutral clutch and gold heeled sandals and go to a Spring Wedding wearing it, but I can see it dressed down also, like for Memorial Day Weekend with some flat sandals or canvas slip-ons. You may remember Emily from my very first linkup. She co-hosted "Thursday Moda #1" with me and collaborated with me on a Blanket Scarves styling week, that same week. I have only been reading Emily's blog for a while but I love what she writes and every outfit she posts. She is one stylish teacher. Make sure you check out her blog and follow her, also.

Lizzie is 'All Laced Up' in her Beautiful Rose Quartz Off-Shoulder Dress with Adorable Block Heel Sandals and a Panama Hat, complete with Fresh Flowers.
Shellie claims to 'Rock Skinny Jeans over 40' and she is not joking. I love her fabulous Blue Rose, Hi-Lo Dress Over the Skinny Denim.
Lauren feels like a 'Dancer Emoji' in that Stunning Red Dress - you've got to see the back! Love her Edgy Booties and Adorable Cactus Clutch.

Thursday Moda Co-Host: Shea Lennon.
Take a sneak peek of some other cozy and chic looks from Shea, just three of my favorites (below).
From Shea's Mouth:

  1. Love your bright pink Converse inspired shoes. I'm wanting to get a colourful pair of Converse Chucks to compliment my black and white pairs, but can't decide on a colour.

    Thank you for the link up!

  2. What a pleasant surprise, a great way to end my day!! First of all, thank you for featuring me!! A wedding was exactly what I pictured this at too, but I love the idea of dressing it down with slip one! Speaking off, I'm a sucker for Walmart sneakers. Over the years, I've bought so many, often in multiple colors. You just can't beat that price! Walmart does have some good finds every once in a while!

  6. I often find gems at Walmart...you just have to look a little bit. Isn't great to be able to shop girl's shoes too? It gives you so many more options; I have several pairs from the girl's department.

  14. I own one pair of Converse...the real ones, and I think I wore them one time. Unlike you, I have large feet, a size 9, so I feel like a duck when I wear Converse because they make my feet look even bigger. I think they look best on people with small feet. Biggest waste of $50 I ever spent. As far as buying clothes at Walmart...rarely. I bought a few pairs of pants there and the zippers kept breaking, so I quit buying clothes there. If my eye spots a cute top, I might pick up that. Love your shawl!

  18. Those pink Chuck-look-alikes are so cute, and I'm so impressed you found them at Walmart. I rarely go there but it sounds like it's worth the trip! Thanks again for having me as a co-host Ada!

  19. First Ada...who doesn't love Walmart---those sneakers are the greatest---I just got a pair about 6 months ago in grey as I wasn't sure if I'd like them. But they are definitely keepers---they make me feel like a teenybopper!!
    Second, I wanted to commend you---I think it's so nice you show multiple pictures of your co-host when you introduce her!

  21. I saw shoes like those at Walmart as well and thought about getting them but then I spent some money at Target instead. I will definitely look into them for next time. Walmart has some awesome jewelry clearance deals that I admittingly fall into occassionally.
    Looking lovely Ada, thanks for hosting.

  23. Hey, Ada! I love that you picked up everything at Wal-Mart! Stylish, comfy, and cute. I appreciate your review of the leggings, especially because those can be hit or miss and you definitely don't want to be going out in see-through leggings! Your hair is so long! Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful rest of the week.
