Versatile Style by Tracey

Florals

Posted on: May 17, 2013

I have always liked florals,but there are times when some of the designs were aging and n0t something I would wear.  Thank goodness for the current  floral trend and the fabulous  choices galore!

I purchased this top at BJ’s while grocery shopping as a Mother’s Day gift to myself.  I also picked up a pair of blush colored jeans, but with temperatures in the high 80’s today I opted to debut the top with the thrifted Loft skirt.

Waiting until after 5 pm to take photos was perfect as the winds had kicked up and were creating a nice breeze.  I added a smaller scarf in purple as a belt detail here for two reasons, to pop a darker purple color to work with the purse and to tighten the skirt waist as it is a little loose.  I loved typing that, a size 6 waist is loose.  It’s been a long time coming… Last time this year I was just starting Weight Watchers and was in a size 10 to 12…

Once again I am rocking a pair of peep toed sling- back wedges… Just a warning, I own 8 pairs that I bought over the last few years.  These white ones are higher than most of my others, but are still pretty comfortable.   Just in case you missed it, the purple purse is a Nine West that I scored for just $4 at Goodwill…

Dear Readers, I am feeling all over the map with brights, neutrals and pastels over the last three days, but that to me is the definition of versatility and the ability to mix them up as well. I have been feeling some anxiety about blogging and showing summer outfits since temperatures here get so hot and worse due to high humidity.  I wonder how I can keep it real, yet still be fashionable.   Then reality hit me and I remembered air conditioning which all businesses keep frozen so I won’t be limited to nothing but skirts or shorts with a thin top… I get cold easily and carry sweaters or light jackets everywhere I go so I am not miserably cold.  Do you have that problem in your area?  do you have nicer summers without the misery of the humidity?  Do you like Spring /Summer or Fall/Winter better for style?

These are the bracelets I am wearing above that were made by be several years ago.  

Gratitude:  I am grateful for yoga stretching that helped my sore muscles.  I am grateful that I am feeling much better despite not enough sleep.  I am grateful to my oldest for cutting grass and adding weed killer to the yard despite the heat of the day.  I am grateful that my 17 year old stayed after school today for extra testing help despite his good grades and realizing he actually learned something helpful.  I am grateful for our mini lop rabbit who brings so much joy and laughter to us all.  I am grateful to my daughter for showing me a website to help prepare  Connor for testing and for cleaning up all the junk programs the boys had installed on my computer.

You look ready for spring! Love it!

Thank you, but with these temps I think we skipped Spring and are into Summer!

I absolutely love this look! You look ready for a spring or summer day. The scarf as a belt was a great idea. I always forget about my scarves. Enjoy your weekend 🙂

Looking good, Tracey. I definitely prefer the colder seasons. The weather in FL is good right now, low to mid 80s. But soon enough we will proceed to jungle heat, where the humidity is so bad, you will have sweat rolling down your back just from walking from your air conditioned car, into an air conditioned building. I dread our Summers and stay inside as much as possible. Thankfully, temps are cooler at the beach as breezes come in off the water, so that area is tolerable. Yikes!

I often wondered weather FL had bad humidity…. Yes, the beach does provide a nice breeze and in fact I swear it is at least 10 degrees cooler at the beach. Do the businesses crank the AC so high you need long sleeves like they do here?

Love this outfit! That skirt looks adorable on you!!

Thank you, I love skirt for these warmer seasons…
