Versatile Style by Tracey

Style Challenge

Posted on: March 19, 2015

Angie from You Look Fab has inspired me yet again…

This time it’s to style outfits using Picasso paintings as inspiration

I can’t express enough Dear Readers how much I enjoy this site and all that I learn from it.

If you are not a blogger and just a reader looking for help styling this is a very supportive place.

And Now on to my first look of the Challenge


I have to say that this was not my first choice for an inspiration outfit.

I originally planned my grey leather jacket and a grey top with some white touches in the print , but the shirt was sleeveless and bowling today in a leather jacket wouldn’t go together….

Why do I mention this… because I seriously questioned wearing the peplum with this sweater…


I would have noticed my distaste and chosen a plain white t-shirt, but alas 

I am a very considerate person and my husband was getting a rare day to sleep in , so 

I didn’t want to go into that room where the full length mirror is to double check my head to toe look, something I always do… One never knows what silhouettes work well without looking…

Picasso - The Charnel House, 1944-45

And here is the inspiration

The Charnel House


No full shot of my side pose today..

cause when I bent my leg, my foot came out of my show and looked dumb..

My photographer was not his normal self as I interrupted a phone call and xbox game play 

when I asked him to take my pictures…

Dear Readers , Today really was a great day at bowling… then things fell apart when somehow I lost my Fitbit…I seriously had it on my bra strap and then it was just gone. I retraced all my steps and even took a flashlight and can’t find it anywhere… I am so frustrated as I was just starting to feel the value of it and was sure this tool was going to be a huge help in my weight loss journey… I feel so lost as I was checking it several times a day and setting goals… I hope it turns up..


I am so grateful for this homeschool group and how incredible these kids are to each other. Today they voted my son as team Captain as we start the push towards their first competition.  I know he felt so honored  and accepted.  

I am grateful for the parents as they are truly supportive and fun to be with. 

I am grateful that the group is getting together Sunday for extra practice. Normally my son and his father go every week together, so it will be nice for his Dad to see this incredible group…

I am grateful that I had a normal amount of sleep last night, waking up at 7:15, sure beats the 5:30 and 6:30 wake ups from the previous two days and last week…alas it didn’t last 5:30 again this morning…

I am grateful for another date set for our Parent’s Night Out , as we all look forward to this…

I am grateful that I agreed to another competition for bowling in July in Roanoke (I had originally said I didn’t want to go) ,as I know it will be fun!

I really like the peplum top with that sweater! It carries the ruffly theme and looks fantastic!! Another great example of trying something you normally wouldn’t and having it turn out great!!! jodie
