Versatile Style by Tracey

Olive, Black and White

Posted on: March 8, 2015

I was very inspired by You Look Fab’s  Outfit Ensemble from Friday

And decided I just had to jump on board and try this one.  

I then decided I’ would like to to a few looks using these colors, so this week that’s my challenge…

Maybe not the entire week, but at least 3 days…

Here is the original: 

Ensemble: Olive and Black


Linking up today with Visible Monday


Black and white striped shirts are so versatile and this thrifted Jones New York is my favorite.

I think the solid arms on this shirt work really well with the Old Navy olive vest.  

My pants are Old Navy, Here…


We had a peak of Spring Today with temperatures near 70!

It was so nice to have a warmer sunny day….


I like this first attempt at the color ensemble and look forward to seeing what I find next…

Stop by tomorrow to see what I chose…

Dear Readers, It’s Confession Time!  

I’ve been feeling very stressed lately and resorted to stress eating and gaining weight…I have to do something NOW, as I am not about to have to go out and buy new bottoms when I have curated a wardrobe I love….

So, when a friend on Facebook said she was feeling the same, I got right into gear and started a Facebook group, 

Hampton Roads Getting Healthy Support Group

While I made it for my local area to encourage meetings and possibly walking groups to form, anyone who is looking for support to make changes to exercise and eating healthy, is welcome to join for support and to offer recipes, exercise and what is working for them, or just to ask for accountability or support when needed on this journey…

Join In ! 


I am grateful for a fun day with my friend!  She’s been out of town for months and it was so good to see her again. Looking forward to Spring and attending some fun events together!

I am grateful to a friend on Facebook, commenting that she was ready to get healthy, which motivated me to start the new Get Healthy Page….

I am grateful to my dear friend for jumping on board when I asked about going walking in the early morning hours before I begin my homeschool day…. We are starting tomorrow, Monday!

I am grateful that my daughter is back in Boston and that we accomplished our goal of making her costume, didn’t get pictures, but she promised me some later…

I am grateful that I am on my way to not just getting back on track to weight loss, but to maintain it and never regain! I am Driven!   Remember my 50th B’day is in September and I want this done before then!

That’s a great inspired look Tracey! I was inspired also by Angie’s ideas. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

Some of my favorite tops are Jones New York. I love the fabric and they’re really wearable for every day. Your colors and inspired outfit look great here, Tracey.

I agree Jones New York tops are wonderful! Thanks for stopping by…

Outfit is very nice and current! Am right with you with the weight gain and acheiving my own weight loss goals. My daughter informed my husband and I that we are going to be grandparents! So…one more reason to get in shape and loose this weight. Blessings!

Thank you Ana…yes a beautiful reason to embrace health. Congratulations!

You look great Tracey, I wore olive and black a week ago, it is a great combo. I like the stripes and your boots look very hip with the outfit. Ready for spring? I am !
I am hoping to start a link up called Turning Head Tues next tues if you would like to stop by

from the link up, please stop by, jess xx

Thank you, Jess. I have to get better at doing link ups as I’ve slacked off all but Visible Monday, so thank you for the invitation.

No problem! I just hope I can pull it off! 🙂
