Hi-Lo Floral Dress and The Happiest of Birthdays to Ada Link up



Hello! Today's post is a special tribute to my fellow blogger and friend, Ada, the creator and writer behind Elegance and Mommyhood. It's her birthday today and I love how she celebrates by bringing her blogging friends together in a conglomeration of fashion in true Ada style. We can't be together in person but we can dress up and salute Ada from all over the world.


Here's what the fabulous Ada has to say about this sweet tradition of hers:

"Every year that I've been blogging, since I became a mom, I thought it would be fun to have a blog birthday party on my blog, including other fashionistas and blogging friends. It started in 2013 and this is the 6th year of this fun birthday tradition. When I first started it in 2013 as a beginner, I invited my closest 5-6 blogging buddies who came to visit, read and comment on my blog on a daily basis. Over the last 3 years this fun blogging party has grown and it has become a two day celebration. This year I am joined by another 20 fashionistas who I am lucky to call my friends and who are all super stylish to boot.  A lot of these ladies have been celebrating my birthday with me on the blogger other years and I'm very glad and flattered to see them return. Thank you beauties for me this tradition super fun, joyful and fashionable once again. Cheers with a Pinot Noir!  Here's to another year of getting older and hopefully wiser."


The dress I chose to celebrate in arrived on my doorstep a little over a week ago from Corrie LeeAnn's Facebook group. I've been eyeballing this piece for awhile now,  so when I saw Corrie priced it at $20, shipping included, I could hold back no longer.

Come to me my little floral beauty. 

Even more fetching in person, this piece has plenty of colors to choose from for shoes or jewelry.  I chose white wedges this go round, but that didn't stop me from trying out all my spring/summer sandals. This would make a great Mother's Day dress, but I'm not sure I'll hold out that long. ;)

In the meantime, you can join me in stalking Corrie's Facebook group. You never know what you're going to find!



Necklace: Sway by Premier Designs, Earrings: Gem Drops by Premier



Bracelet: Pearl-Sueded by Premier Designs



These shoes are another WHBM $6 clearance steal, but here are some fun wedges...



Let's stay young at heart, find joy in each day and keep lifting each other up! :) Muah! Now join me and go link up my lovelies! (Also linking up with all the fabulous bloggers listed HERE.)

Happy, happy birthday Ada. Let's have a cupcake together!!

  11. Dearest Chrissy, actually your post was one of the first 3 I read the morning of my birthday but didn't have time to reply. I love what you wrote first of all, especially that first paragraph. Thank you so kindly!

    Let me just say YOUR OUTFIT WAS MY FAVORITE OF ALL (out of all) from this year's very fashionable blog party, and also My Most Favorite you have EVER worn! And the fact that you wore it for my birthday makes it even sweeter. That Hi-Lo Wrap Dress is so pretty, love the soft colors and beautiful floral. The white wedges and your fun tassel necklace are just as beautiful and a great match, plus your hair and makeup are simply flawless here. You look about 10 years younger and just shine in these photos!!!

    That pretty dress, the shoes, etc. were such a steal but you my friend look like a million bucks! Which goes to show that money doesn't buy style, beauty or grace!

    Thank you so very much for taking part in my annual blog birthday party. Let's do it again next year, Chrissy!! =) I loved having you. Thanks again. I also wrote a little something about each blogger participating and I hope you like what I wrote about you (meant every word of it)!

    1. Awww, Ada. Thank you so much. Those are just the kindest things to say...of course you have a way with words. ;) And thank you for inviting me into your life...I loved what you said here and on your blog...sometimes I lack the words to express what I'm thinking but you do it so well. Keeping inspiring, encouraging and pushing others to be the best they can be...and of course keep being you!! :)
