Versatile Style by Tracey

Pinterest Inspiration

Posted on: November 27, 2012

This is today’s inspiration:

cozyWhat attracted me to this look was the simplicity of it and the combination of black and brown.  I think this look is one that almost anyone could put together and add their own spin to. I think this is a great Mom on the Go look for me and just feels like such a casual easy way to wear a dress.  Love the basic t-shirt dress and it’s versatility.    Here is my recreation, which I stuck pretty  close to the original.

I will say that this will not be the only time I wear this black dress with black tights and brown boots, as I love it and already have another outfit in mind which I will post in a few weeks. I actually got so excited about the second look that I took photos and danced around loving it!  I also must confess that I did not own a scarf in this shade at all and did buy this one to recreate this look and to wear with some of my winter coats.

I went to the Goodwill thrift store yesterday and tried on several dresses and each one I loved and ended up getting all six of them.  After all, when they were all yellow tagged (half price color of the week) I couldn’t resist them at $3.50 each.  I am going to try to get my wear out of my dresses in the next month or so before temperatures get too cold.  I am limited in pants right now as I do not want to buy anymore until I reach my goal weight.  Come back on Friday and see my new dresses.

Linking up with: Rolled Up Pretty,  Raegun Ramblings, and The Pleated Poppy, so be sure to stop by and see what everyone is up to today.  I also linked  up with Pinspired Style !

Gratitude: I am grateful for finally getting relief from the migraine headaches.  I am grateful to my friend Sue for taking me thrifting yesterday and celebrating my weight loss success… I am grateful to my husband for being so supportive of my weight loss and  tolerating my fashion show of thrift store dresses.  I am grateful for the support of Weight Watchers and my leader, Melissa!

As always dear reader, I look forward to your comments, thank you!

You look fabulous Tracey! This is a really great re-creation. I really like black and brown together too. Heather

You totally nailed it! Looks great, AND shows that neutrals can go together nicely.
