Lady Like in Lace

Posted on: February 3, 2013

As a brown haired girl, I have always preferred wearing  brown over black.  I took these photos during our warm front,  as I was so excited to get to wear skirts and dresses. I am so glad I had this as a back up for today’s post.  Sunday went by way too fast and before I knew it the Super Bowl was about to begin… It is actually 6:12 as I begin this post.


I love this skirt and the lace top which are both thrifted


This brown jacket is identical to the one I wore Here!  For some reason when I put on the lace top my first instinct was to run to my jewelry box to find my mother’s cameo.  Actually I am the third generation to wear this as it was originally purchased by my grandfather as a gift for my grandmother.  I believe he purchased it over seas while serving in the military during WWII.  My mother often told the story of how he left when she was a baby and returned when she was six.  I can’t imagine that.


My husband was in the Navy when we met and didn’t want to stay in because he wanted to be a father and present for his children. We had our daughter one month prior to the end of  his four year commitment.  It was a sacrifice he wasn’t willing to make and wouldn’t even consider re-enlistment.  I was glad that is where is heart was and loved him for making that decision. I truly admire military families and the challenges they face and respect so much what they do for our country.

I love never knowing where my writing will take me when I start a post.  Some days I have and idea but more often than not it just flows into something like this…

Gratitude:  I am grateful that we are all about to sit down as a family to watch the Super Bowl.  I am grateful that my husband made the choice to be a father and husband and present in our lives.  I am grateful to all military personnel and their families.

You’re so lucky to have that family heirloom, and it was the perfect finishing touch for your outfit. Your styling skills are improving all the time. Do you think you could have put that look together last year? Or have had the desire?

Thank you and yes, I would have put this together last year as I wore the heck out of this jacket in so many ways. and had great pencil skirts, which of course no longer fit due to the weight loss, but I am slowly rebuilding.

What a terrific outfit, Tracey, and it’s great to have a family heirloom to add. Thanks so much for linking up!

I love this outfit. I love the nude shoe and the belted coat. You look awesome!

Thank you! That belted jacket is one of my favorites!

Love the outfit and story!!

Thank you! I love my ADD brain and the ability to pull this out of sitting down with nothing to write!

Love this outfit, Tracey. Especially the sentimental value and story behind the cameo. Brown and white looks so crisp and that jacket is certainly accentuating your slender waistline beautifully.

Such a cute outfit!! I love the skirt and brown is at the top of my favorite colors…great job with the styling!

Love the lace under the belted jacket! Really makes both pieces pop. Great look all around.
