Gloomy Day Gladiators

Oh my, it's May !

Seriously though, where did the first quarter of this year go...

These crazy storms have given us some pretty gloomy weather this week.  This cozy, lightweight sweater from The Little Black Fashion Truck was just perfect for a quick dinner date with my main squeeze. (yep, you read that right.  A fashion TRUCK.  amazing. and more about that below....)  Since it was still pretty humid out, I kept it cool with what will surely be my go-to shorts of the summer from Blush Boutique & the gladiator sandals I scored from Just  I have been taking my Spring brights with a side of black this week, and it's pretty satisfying.  

Dainty necklaces & baubles have been my jam lately, so these two necklaces were great for layering.  The wishbone set from Charming Finds (don't forget the site launches May 3rd!) & a pretty rose gold bar necklace from Shinymix (Use CODE ModaAndTheMar for 10% Off!) were the perfect pairing.  

psssst  - Make sure to checkout the weekly linkup hosted by blogging babes Jacqueline & Elle - Moda & the Mar is being featured for this post last week !    


Guess what??!  I am teaming up with eleven other bloggers to introduce you to a brand new site that is launching today. The Little Black Fashion Truck started as a pop-up travelling boutique, and after a year of travelling around in Idaho, owner Erin is taking her store online to accommodate her fashionistas from every state.   How cool is this idea of a fashion truck?!  I truly wish such a thing existed where I live.  However, since my town is tiny and pretty much fashion-less, I will resort to shopping TLBFT online.  And so can you!

To kick start the launch, we are giving away THREE store credits for The Little Black Fashion Truck.  Yep, there will be three winners that will receive store credits ranging from $15 to $50. The Giveaway ends May 9th & is open to International followers. All entries will be verified. You can follow along for outfits of the day and fun giveaways on Instagram and Facebook as well.  

So stop waiting for TLBFT to come to your town, and get your online shoppin' on! What items are you loving from The Little Black Fashion Truck?  Make sure to check out the pages of the other blogging beauties above too!

  2. These sandals are great and such a great price. You are making this trend more and more appealing to me (and more attainable). I like indulging in trends but nothing to break the bank because I don't know how much use I will get out of them. Great find. Now I will have these sandals on my mind all day! Total girl problems!


  3. Love the floral days maxi dress

  4. I've never heard of TLBFT...thanks for introducing them!!

  7. Love the mint color with black. Makes it pop so much more! Great, casual look (well, maybe not too casual with those killer shoes:)


  8. I have to admit that I wasn't too sure about the gladiators, but the more I looked at them, the more fab I realized they are! Your outfit is bold and cute, the perfect combo.

  9. Those gladiators are seriously amazing! Love how you still kept it girly with the mint!
