For todays link up I am excited to introduce to you my co-host for the week Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood. Be sure to read her bio below and visit her page and follow her. I just love how intentional she is and thoughtful, not to mention great in the style area. Oh and by the way you will love her daughter Vivian as well, I promise!

Meet your guest co-host Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood.


“Hey there Rachel’s readers. I am Ada and I blog over at Elegance and Mommyhood. I have been blogging full-time for a little over 3 years now and like my blog title says, my blog mostly reflects my everyday style and everyday snippets on life and mommyhood. My toddler Vivian is a big part of my blog as well and a lot of times takes part in my photo-shoots as well as her own. I am a real woman on a real budget and I am a budget-conscious fashionista, too. Almost always my outfits never exceed the $130 head-to-toe price. So if you are looking for everyday mom style and cute little girl’s outfits you have come to the right price.

I welcome you to check out my blog. This blogging community is all about meeting fun, fashionable, wonderful women with whom we have similar styles and life-styles and that is my most favorite part of blogging, besides sharing what I wear daily. Nothing fancy, just simple chic styles that fit my day-to-day life and my modest budget.

You can follow me via Bloglovin, Google Friend Connect, Google + and Pinterest.

Thank you for stopping by.”

 Now on to the featured five from last week and link up:

janfringebagJan linked up a casual running errands look that I found to be super cute. Converses, cut off shorts and fringe- say no more! You can view her outfit here and new hair style.boho-crochet-dress-61-666x1024 (1)Denise almost always inspires me to try a cut off shoulder dress or blouse and while she linked up a few this was my favorite! I just love the crisp clean white and neutral colored accessories with a pop of blue. See the outfit details here.

camocoolAndrea posted a style inspiration for styling camo pants. I didn’t include the shoes in this shot because you are just going to have to visit her post here to see what she did include. I just love this ladies beauty daily!




Iris linked up a lovely dress from a former store called Cache. While Cache is no more she made me think of stores in my Ghost of  “shopping” past that I loved and miss (Rave, local consignment stores). What are some of the stores you miss that closed? Read her post here to find a list of other stores missed.

Krista inspired me to try local dairy farm products as she noticed with her butter from the dairy farm there were only three ingredients in it versus our store bought 20 plus ingredients (say WHAT). I don’t think I have ever had local dairy farm butter so this inspired me to try some. Krista’s post is about a day spent on a farm with her little family, and what a cute outfit too, I might add. Read the post here about their farm adventures.

    Oh my goodness, I am just in love with Jan’s outfit! I had to pin it! I have that same blush fringe purse, but I love how she casually styled it… now, if only I had those shoes and her top in those colors! Ada is looking great, too and I am going to be wearing a similar dress to hers on my blog next week!!
