Versatile Style by Tracey

Black, Grey and Lilac

Posted on: January 19, 2014

Angie at YOU LOOK FAB put together an outfit forumla to wear these three colors together, 

and here is my version

Linking up today with Monday Bloom


I have seen several Pinterest looks of layering two shirts or a shirt and cardigan under a jacket and have wanted to try the 3 layered look, and since I had  two shirts in the lilac color, I ventured forth.

I loved wearing the 3 layers and it was a windy and cold day which was perfect!  I would definitely attempt this 3 layered style again!  Can’t believe I coveted it so long and that it took me so long to do so…. As any true fashionista knows there are so many creative ways to put together outfits and not enough days in a season!!!!


I love that my two shirts played so well together and that the stipes addesd extra interest to the look.  If you are a regular reader, you notice I wear hats alot because I hate cold temps and they really help me feel warmer during photo shoots and it really is my real style as I never go out in winter without a hat….


There really is something about wearing heels that ups my mood and makes me feel Spunky!  I love riding boots a lot this season and my Mom on the Go looks, but it is nice to break out of the mold, especially for a movie date night….

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  My husband and I went to movies both Friday and Saturday night, seeing “American Hustle” , then “The Wolf of Wallstreet”.

 The Wolf of Wallstreet was excellent and hit very close to home for us.  You see my husband was a stock broker and the first company he worked for was much like  the firm depicted in the movie,  he, however ” did not drink the Kool-aid” and in fact gave evidence to the FBI and SEC after he recognized what was happening.  His firm changed their name several times, putting different people in charge and had 7 offices all doing the same stocks at the same time. My husband felt a huge responsibility to his clients and moved to a reputable firm and made all his clients whole.. With only one client not returning his calls, he still kept an eye on things and left him a message of when to sell out in time to make a profit…. He was young, in his mid 2o’s at the time and I was so proud of him and impressed with his integrity!  So, as someone who had a real experience like this movie, we were both very impressed with it and Leonardo Dicaprio’s performance was incredible!!!  He has really grown as an actor and really deserves the Best Actor nomination! 

Can’t help mentioning Matthew McConaughy’s appearance in this movie and how unsettiling it was to see him so thin and sickly looking.  He has been a favorite of mine and I cringed during his scenes.  I understand he did this to play and Aids patient in a movie, but the shock of how unhealthy he looked haunts me…


I am greatful to Angie at You Look Fab and the wonderful inspirations she takes so much time and detail in putting together.

I am grateful for  our movie nights and our chance to remember that time in our lives and how we stood strong in our morals and did what was right!

I am grateful that my husband is loving his job so much,  as he really thrives when in a position of making things flow in a company and promoting a positive workplace.

I am grateful to share my story , with you my dear Readers!!!!!

I like the colors together, and I love the hat! I tried the multi-layers look, and my 15 yr. old said she liked it. My husband and I went to see “Saving Mr. Banks” last weekend, and it was the first time in years we went to the movie theater. My husband is a firm believer of getting a movie from the library for free, and it was a struggle to convince him to go last Friday. 🙂 The movie was good!

Well, congrats for talking him into movie night. We love movies and have criteria of which ones are theater worthy or which ones we will wait until its in Redbox. You know it’s an ok style when your teen agrees.

I love this look. You’ve made me brave enough to give it a try.
Thank you for the movie reviews as well.

Thanks for commenting and inspiring others is why I blog.

I love your outfit:) you look beautiful:))))
Have a lovely week . Kisses Beata

I love riding boots too, those booties are perfect with the pants.

I am looking forward to watch Wolf of Wall Street. I heard that Leonardo Di Caprio’s performance is just amazing. Fantastic layering by the way 🙂

loving this color combo and how you pulled it all together
loved WOWS

The triple layered style is a great look and you pulled it off perfectly.

I saw American Hustle a few weeks ago and loved it. They really were spot-on in their depiction of late 70’s decor and clothing!
I love the triple layered look and lavender/charcoal combo 😉


I agree and the music was fabulous!!!!

[…] tried the 3 layer look for the first time last week or so Here  and liked it so much I was inspired to do this again today..I know those who live in colder temps […]
