Dare to go Bare

Posted on: March 18, 2015

Bare Legged that Is!  

We had an 80 degree St. Paddy’s Day!  

I had planned a totally different layered look for this dress…


But I quickly ditched the cognac jacket and boots idea for something more fitting to our incredibly nice day.

It was windy and had some clouds ,but I am not complaining! 


This dress is by Liz Claiborne , New York, an exclusive line to QVC.

It comes in several colors and can be found Here

You have to love a tee shirt dress and even more when it is striped….



It was so windy all my side view pictures have the sweater covering me up…

In funny news my pointed toe flats from Just Fab 

are featured in April’s Redbook in

Brad Goreski’s article on Spring Style Buys for Every Size.

I bought mine on a two for the regular price sale last month.  

Dear Readers, Tomorrow I begin the Picasso Spring Style Challenge set forth

Charnel House is the first Inspiration Painting…

Come back tomorrow and see what I chose to wear.

Better yet join in the fun and send me photos at


I am grateful that I decided to up my game and take two jogs up a hill and down again during my morning walk. I think I will do it again Thursday….no walking on Wednesdays…

I am grateful that tomorrow is bowling day , we complete our 14 week pick your prize package and I will be getting my son his very own bowling ball.  

I am grateful that my son was very agreeable and homeschooled quickly today, he is good at stalling techniques and driving me nuts lately…we finished early and took a walk to Wendy’s for a Frosty. 

I am grateful for my Weight Watcher training to eat as I had no fear in purchasing a small Frosty and indulging knowing that my four point dinner of chicken, mushrooms and onions would allow me to stay within my point allotment for the day… I didn’t eat it all, using only 6pts instead of the 8pts.  

I am grateful for my faith and belief in Divine Order , as things that make no sense to me, I’ve learned not to question, but just let them play out as I always see that the puzzle piece fits in the near future.

Love the casual/chic vibe with the neutral accents!!! I also love your grateful points at the bottom of the blog….I think this would be a good exercise for all of us!! jodie

Thank you, I write the gratitude journal online for myself as well as to motivate others and always feel such delight when others compliment that feature of my blog. Daily Gratitude is a fabulous life changer.

Tracy, I want to order the Liz striped dress you are wearing. I am so short and it’s not a petite, how tall are you if you don’t mind me asking. Thanks and you cheer me every day😀

Julie I am 5 ft 3 and I belted it to bring the length up a bit as I typically like things just above the knee. Since it is an A-line it works better with a belt in my opinion.. I have long legs so typically don’t wear petite pants or skirts. It is shame that this doesn’t come in petite as so many items on qvc do have that option…

Tracy, I ordered the dress! It looks great on you and I am going to take a chance. I selected black, and thanks for the link. Following your pictures and styles each morning. Look forward to getting my dress and will let you know if it works for me!

Thank you, hoping it works for you and thank you for commenting and letting me know what I do makes a difference! Can’t wait to hear how it goes for you…

Love your dress, you look ready for spring! It’s great when we can put away winter clothes 🙂 Do you have very many Liz outfits from QVC, I’m tempted sometimes! Have a wonderfully blessed Wednesday!

I have a few pieces ,but to be honest I can’t think of what they are right off the top of my head. I very much like the brand and quality.

You look lovely and it is no nice to be able to bare it!

How cute you look, and the green is quite becoming on you! I know your dad liked green, and so did mine. It’s nice to remember things like that and honor them in little, yet special, ways, isn’t it!?

Yes it is nice that memories can come up everywhere. Thanks for commenting…

Dress and purse are really cute and I just love those shoes. 80! degrees?! Ahhhh, nice. We probably won’t see 80 till July. ha

Lisa, our summers are so humid 80 degrees in Spring feels so much better…

Such a beautiful, springy look, Tracey! I love the green and white stripes and your bag is just perfect!
