Versatile Style by Tracey

Red, Black and Grey

Posted on: December 17, 2013

I originally put this outfit together without the scarf, and was totally bored with the look. 

It was ok, but just didn’t have enough flair for me… 


It’s so funny that the pattern mixing made me feel complete when  less than eightenn months I hadn’t even discovered pattern mixing.  


My camera battery was super low during this photo shoot, so my young photographer (13) ran to each spot and said ” quick , quick, quick’ as I was getting into position, took 3 shots as quickly as possible before moving to the next location and doing it again… It was funny and the fastest photo shoot to date! 


I remember last year when I found this scarf at my grocery store and thought how funny it was to snag one while grocery shopping. I ended up buying four of them last year.  The funny thing is that since I now have so many scarves  I ddin’t even look at them and I go there at least two to three times per week….

Dear Readers, the final packages have been arriving and my tow middle kids have been volunterring to wrap things as they love doing so and I had wrapped all the other gifts already.  It’s nice when they volunteer.  


I am grateful that I treated myself to the much wanted Navy colored moto jacket from F21 and it arrived today! 

I am grateful that this is the last week my senior in high school has before the holidays, it’s so hard for him with college siblings and a homeschooling borther…

I am grateful that my oldest is so happy after years struggling to find the right major and has a great GPA and is proud of himself. Those years struggling to find his path took a toll on him.

I am grateful for a wonderful conversation with my dear daughter where she informed me that talk therapy is more antiquated and that she will be doing a style more like Dr. Phil and be able to use her talents of cutting to the core of things.

The colors and pattern of the scarf seems to pull the whole outfit together. Scarves seem to look great on other women, but I can’t get used to the way they look on myself so I don’t wear them.

Way to go on finishing things up for Christmas!

I love your daily gratitude lists! They always remind me to look at the positives.

The scarf adds the perfect detail to this outfit! It has a mix of feminine, flirty, and classic that blend well together.

Thank you, that is why I share my gratitude list and some days I really have to stretch myself , but this past year of blogging them has been a great benefit in my life and my dear readers as well. Your description of my outfit was thoughtful and delightful!

Hi, Tracey! I couldn’t help but notice your thoughtful replies you regularly leave on the Walking in Grace and Beauty blog. Finally, my curiosity brought me to your blog, and I’m glad it did! I’ve been enjoying reading old and new posts here and signed up to follow you. Kudos to you for sharing your heart and your life’s journey. My parents died 15 months apart at the ages of 62 and 64, so I understand. I like your sense of style. I’ve always loved scarves and am really happy they’re back in style! (Yes, I’m old enough to remember wearing them the last go-round!) :-). Blessings to you…

Thankyou so much for your kind comments and losing your parents both young and so close together must have been a very tough time. Scarves really transform a look and I sm dreading the idea of them going out of style….

I love your outfit. I think you have pattern mixing nailed. I love your colors: red, black & gray. I’m changing my winter wardrobe to these colors (with red, blue & tan in the summer). I love yesterday’s post too.

Thank you, these are great wiinter colors!
