Fall Florals, Jewel Tones, and Thursday Moda Link Up

Today, I am honored to be co-hosting the Thursday Moda Link Up hosted by the lovely Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood. I was so flattered when Ada emailed asking me if would be interested in co-hosting her fabulous weekly link up. This was my defining moment of feeling like a legit blogger! So thank you, Ada, for that very important affirmation.




I want to use this opportunity also to thank all of the blogging community and the amazing women (and men) I have met along this journey. You have all been so tremendously supportive of me and of each other. And it is so appreciated and definitely does not go unnoticed. I really love how everyone is so willing to help out fellow bloggers with the beautiful comments and compliments given to one another, the safety of being able to reach out with technical questions and receive very quick and helpful responses, and the loyal readers who return to my blog week after week and participate in my own weekly link up. For all of this, I am so, so thankful.




I created this blog as an outlet to express myself creatively through style, fashion, and writing. And I have gained so much more. I have found camaraderie with like-minded people who share similar interests and passions. And I have been able to share my own experiences in life with the hopes of helping others. From response I have received, it seems that perhaps I have already helped a few. And from my perspective, that makes me feel successful.



Now…onto the outfit. I am so ready for Fall! But it is still hanging in the upper 70’s with a tremendous amount of humidity in the air. For the awkward transitional weather, I have been wearing autumnal hues in lighter weight fabrics. Like this mustard and plum floral blouse. I scored this last year on major clearance from JCPenney. A pair of white distressed skinny jeans and these fabulous plum suede booties (also scored on major clearance last year from the Aerosoles Outlet) complete this outfit.

  3. First of all I am beyond flattered, happy and honored to see what you wrote about me and my linkup. That is so wonderful of you. This post is wonderful indeed as is your jeweled-tone outfit. Gosh I want that pretty blouse. Though our outfits have a different vibe, they have a lot in common.

    This blogging community is so nice, positive and supportive and that is in big part because of people like you. So a big thank you from me. I am honored to have you as my co-host and girlfriend we will do it again very soon. πŸ˜œπŸ’“πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ’œπŸ™ˆπŸ‘„πŸ‘ πŸ‘›πŸ˜€

This was such an honor for me as well.

    • Jodie! That is the best compliment! Thanks so much. I look forward to seeing how you will recreate this look. I have seen in you in yellow and it is so good on you! Happy styling!

    Habe a nice day, Shelbee πŸ™‚

  6. Shelbee, the fall floral and white jeans are a great combo and the booties add a perfect touch to the outfit. Congratulations on the collaboration with Ada and thanks for sharing her link up.

  11. This top is gorgeous! I adore the print and colors which is so perfect to move into fall with. Thanks for the link up!


    • Kathrine, thank you so much! I found this buried on a clearance rack and it really grabbed my attention. When I saw the price tag (under $10), I had to have it! Have a fabulous day!


  12. Have you been shocked at how many things you have found to wear these booties with?? I have been with my wine pair. Yellow is a good color for you!

    • Thank you, Shelly! I used to stay away from yellows, but if they have a bluish undertone they work for me. I picked these wine booties up at the end of the season last year so haven’t had much opportunity to wear them. But I have a burgundy pair, too, and I wore them A LOT last year! They really do coordinate with so many unexpected things. You will be seeing these often I’m sure!


  13. That is the prettiest top! Love the colors, and thanks for co-hosting.

  14. What a fun flirty top!!!!

    I’m back to the blogging world after a 3-week hiatus via the 3rd installment of my collaboration with Los Angeles brand TOBI which I am excited about! #shopTobi

    Happy Thursday!


  15. Hey Shelbee, that was a nice write, especially about the comaraderie of other bloggers and how your personal writing is helping some other people. It makes it worth while and helps to know you’re not just writing out into space isn’t it? Love the boots btw!

    • It really does make all the difference, Julia! When I started blogging, I really didn’t think anyone would ever read what I was writing! Thanks so much for the lovely comment.


  16. What a fun collaboration. I love yours and Ada’s looks.

    • Thanks, Jess! These booties are super comfortable, too, so that’s a huge plus! I think Fall is finally arriving here this weekend. Although it is still in the 80’s today and tomorrow with about 150% humidity! Ugh. But it looks like the ten days following are highs in the mid to low 60’s. I am so excited!!!!
