Versatile Style by Tracey

Spring Dress Winterized

Posted on: December 12, 2012

This dress is one I wore in the spring and summer.  It is a versatile piece that I can leave unbuttoned at the top and add a contrasting tank underneath and a scarf as a belt for added interest.  I wore this with so many color combinations and had so much fun with it. I don’t think it is going to fit well by summer with my weight loss, but I love it so much I may try to wash it in hot water in hopes that it shrinks…

IMG_0950This is what I wore to go weigh in after multiple attempts to find something light weight. I got the biggest kick out of the man at our meeting who stripped his pants off to reveal swim trunks and his jacket off to reveal a tank top.  He even removed his ball cap.  It was nice to see a man being as vain as the women.

IMG_0946We had a remarkable drop in temperatures from 70 to 50 and on top of that the wind was kicking up as this photo reveals.  I was cold standing there and my daughter kept reminding me to loosen up.  At one point she told me I was grimacing not smiling.  Notice my purse is turned to the front in this photo.

IMG_0952My purse is again turned backwards… I decided to give the shootie and dress look another go after my husband’s enthusiastic response to the brown ones.  He liked this one as well, but was barely awake when I revealed it.  This dress is one I purchased from Chadwicks last year and is no longer available and the sweater I found  on clearance at Sears in the spring.  The belt and purse are both thrifted. I love finding purses at the thrift store for just $4.  I also love this size for carrying around shopping.  The shooties I have mentioned before are from Payless this season.  My necklace is saphire by Samuel B via QVC and the watch is also from QVC’s line called Gossip purchased last year.

My favorite part of this outfit is the printed cardigan.  Do you like printed Cardigans and love them as much as I do? Dear Readers chime in! I love hearing from you.

Gratitude: I am grateful that my children all pitched in to help clean up as things had gotten behind with me going out shopping for a dress for my husband’s Christ,as Party. I am also grateful that I finally found a dress after several shopping attempts and frustration.  I am grateful for my friend Sue who shook me up and told me I was hiding in one choice for the dress and vowed to accompany me for as long as it took to find something that showed my weight loss and made me stand tall..

I just love this outfit!

Looks great!! I do the same thing with my summer dresses…or try to at least!

When creating a versatile wardrobe having things that work for several seasons is a must.
