Spring Inspirations….

Posted on: March 27, 2014

With Mother Nature not Cooperating ,  I spent some time on Pinterest looking for Inspirations.

One thing I bought last year and loved, was my Olive Utility Vest…

I know there are so many more oppurtunities to style it, so came up with a few ideas…

I have a navy chevron dress that would look great like this!!!!!

Leopard + Sequins

Sparkles and leopard shoes, a great combination

Mixed polka dots, olive cargo vest, and statement necklace. Love!

I love Polka dots…

I own an olive gingham blouse and tan booties…

Olive & Oak Studded Utility Vest (Online Only) available at #Nordstrom

I like the vibe of casual boyfriend’s and stripes with heels…

cargo vest and lace

I don’t have a lace skirt, but I do have a crotchet one that would be a great subsitute.

coral skirt, striped t-shirt, olive green old navy vest, booties

I love have a skirt in a brighter shade of orange and would wear sandals with this, but wouldn’t have thought of it without this pin…

Perhaps I should to a once a week challenge to wear my Olive Vest and see how many ways I can style it?

Here are Ways I’ve worn it before…

I look forward to seeing how many ways I can wear this vest to show the true versatility of one piece.  I began this blog with very few clothes as I finished my weight loss journey and have built up a great wardrobe, so now I think I’ve reached a stage where I should live up to my blog name and begin showing the Versatility of Individual Pieces and may just make that a new weakly feature of my blog , beginning with this vest once our weather cooperates.

Dear Readers, I began this post earlier this week to keep as a back up and wouldn’t you know I needed one…I went bowling with the homeschool group after a restless night’s sleep and sneezing fits and came home and literally passed out til dinner time… So no outfit pics today!!!!

Such is the life of a homeschooling real mother!!!


I am grateful that I had this post put together and ready to go…

I am grateful that my son really enjoyed the meeting with homeschooling kids his age for bowling.

I am grateful that us mom’s enjoyed it as much as the kids..

I am grateful that we all agreed to do it again in 2 weeks…

I am grateful that my sneezing stopped and despite losing sleep my day was free of sinus issues.

I am grateful for a wonderful conversation with my 27 year old on adulthood and his feelings of loss of childhood wonderment… I told him my gratitude journaling on my blog has really brought that back and that I constently take moments to “pause” as say, ” Look where we are” of “Look what we’ve achieved”… I have those moments I want to recognize and really celebrate and take nothing for granted, a happy side effect of my father passing when I was just 13.   

I am grateful that our discussion led to applications he can see for his own life…

That vest can definitely go a long way in demonstrating versatility. One of the “workhorse” pieces of a wardrobe. Great ideas!
