Versatile Style by Tracey

Bold Burgundy

Posted on: December 20, 2014

Today our homeschooling group went to see A Christmas Carol and 

I used it as an opportunity to wear a dress, as I haven’t worn as many as I usually do lately..

I thrifted this sweater dress and love it so much…

It’s 30% wool and so warm, making no completer piece necessary…

I thrifted the belt as well… It’s adjustable in the back and very versatile…

The necklace is by Susan Graver via Qvc  that I bought back at the end of September for a statement necklace trend for the season… Of course my thrifty side bought it on clearance and it’s now sold out…

Here are her current offerings for necklaces..

I specifically choose to wear my burgundy boots with this today because

I am a conscientious mother…

My daughter had opted for a deep red sweater dress and her black boots, so I wanted a clear distinction for her sake.  

I get lots of compliments on any of my Just Fab bags, they change inventory fast, so this one is no longer available.  

Dear Readers, it was quite fun to go to downtown Norfolk and see the play today.  I really miss seeing my homeschooler on stage, as he is quite a natural talent and had a bad experience with a theater group and hasn’t wanted to try again.. I hope he changes his mind soon..

And here is my daughter’s creativity… She loves doing fun packages for her youngest brother and carried on the tradition this year in a big way… This one involved help from her middle brother and a skill saw!

And Connor couldn’t resist mounting him… which of course ended in disaster and his sister had to put it back together…

Gratitude

I am grateful for the homeschooling group and the time and effort for the mother who coordinated our trip.

I am grateful that we made it on time despite us all feeling like we are not great morning people…

I am grateful that my trio of children and I enjoyed a nice lunch together after the play..

I am grateful that we had a funny moment at lunch when the two from college marveled at how they’d been home such a short time as it felt longer, with all we’ve done.  Remember I mentioned Quality Time is high on all our family love languages..

I am grateful that despite my weight gain, that I didn’t feel bad in this look…

I am grateful to supportive kind hearted readers who leave comments.

Thanks for Stopping By!  Have a wonderful Weekend!

Your prettiest outfit this season! And I love the packaging innovation. 🙂

I love seeing you in a dress….you look great in this one!! I’d probably nix the belt….it competes too much with the necklace, print of the dress and boots!!!

I think that sweater dress looks great on you! I have never really worn a sweater dress as my legs are always cold. You look wonderful! Blessings!

The packaging is so much fun as well!

A great holiday look, Tracey. You look wonderful in that sweater dress.
