Versatile Style by Tracey

Mom on the Go

Posted on: October 31, 2012

 My prayers go out to all those whose lives are disrupted and in chaos from Hurricane Sandy…We were so lucky this storm was milder when it hit us…

What better to wear after a hurricane blows through, than a pink and purple flowered skirt? Well since I like versatility in my wardrobe, I must confess this is no skirt… it is actually a strapless summer dress that I just threw a chunky knit sweater over.   I am trying to channel Spring since it is the coldest day we’ve had yet. I know for other locations, 47 degrees but feels like 40(according to weather.com) and gusts of 25mph winds doesn’t sound cold,  but then again… it’s been in the 70’s….

Photos taken by my 12 year old who doesn’t have a very stead hand, but best I could do… Next week’s shots will be by my husband again…

I have to say that I said I wasn’t going to go thrift shopping this week and although I had really great intentions, being cooped up in the house after several raining days changed my mind. I went thrifting after my Weight Watcher meeting yesterday.  It was much needed therapy.  I love having three sons, but don’t love being in the house non stop for days with them.  They just have a relationship that is beyond me and does not include me.  I don’t belong to the club....I love it for them, so not really complaining.  Then again a little whining now and then isn’t bad, is it?

So , what does one purchase on the first cold day of the season, when the wind is blowing and it’s sprinkling?  I don’t know what anyone else buys, but this lady went for the sweaters. I love sweaters, especially cardigans.  I also got a few cute hats.  If you want to see my haul, I post them on Friday’s so come back and visit.

Off to the mall to hangout with another homeschooling mother…

Gratitude- I am so grateful that my area was not hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and praying for those who were. I am so grateful that I didn’t gain any weight despite my sweet tooth kicking in…I am also grateful to have spent time with a friend yesterday and being on my way to see another one today.

I love the idea of a sweater over a summer dress – extending your wardrobe and still bringing in some lovely colors. You look great — glad you had some adventures outside the home : >

thank you. Yes, versatility is a big bonus in a wardrobe.
