Versatile Style by Tracey

Floral & Stripes…

Posted on: November 6, 2014

It’s funny how sometimes outfits evolve…

Today’s look began with the shoes, floral wedges by Aerosoles , motivated by my brain suggesting I should wear them now before winter hits

and all I am drawn to is my wonderful assortment of boots or booties..


I bought these wedges a few years ago and a search on the website revealed that alas they have the style , but only in solids..

I also tried to find a source for my Zac & Rachel shutter pleat blouse which I have found at both BJ’s and Burlington Coat Factory, but I couldn’t find an online source…


My knit blazer was from Sam’s Club last year and I have to say I know they have different versions this season as does BJ’s….

If you haven’t discovered a knit blazer yet, I highly recommend them..

Perhaps I am delusional, but my love of completer pieces could be clouding my judgement…

I love the knit blazers for my Mom on the Go lifestyle and think I can get away with them as being slightly more casual…

I only say that because my son has mentioned that I don’t dress like the other mother’s,

but he’s quieted down about that and seems to have accepted me just being myself….


Truth be told, I think he kinda likes that I dress my way and I hope that my example is something my children all benefit from..

I hope that it’s an example for my daughter to put herself on the list and not just care for others….

I hope that it shows my sons  that  if they have a stay at home mother for a wife,

to support her in being in touch with herself and not just being a mother and wife.

I know for me that I stand taller( funny to say at 5’3″)  and walk with more confidence dressing my way…


I am grateful that I am feeling much better today… despite lack of sleep…

Note I write posts the night before and am happy to report that I slept the best since returning from Ireland last night and feel much better! 

I am grateful for the homeschooling group and how great it is for my son.

I am grateful for a wonderful group of homeschooling mothers.

I am grateful for my blog and the outlet it gives me as a stay at home mother. 

I am grateful to my mother for being a woman who always put herself on the list and showed me such a wonderful example!         Miss you so much, MOM!

Love your outfit and attitude! I haven’t found THE knit blazer for me yet, but I’m still trying – Sam’s Club you say?

I’ve kind of reverted back to my mom uniform (momiform?) of jeans and boring tees and have to remember that staying at home doesn’t mean I can’t have style.

Great outfit. This really suits you and you look amazing. I love every piece you’ve chosen and how they each compliment one another so well. I really need to find some black slacks in this length, but I keep hoping to I lose these extra pounds before shopping for them….
