Versatile Dresses

Posted on: October 12, 2015

There is nothing I love more than a Dress that offers a variety of

styling options that make it work for several seasons.

Take this new floral shirt dress from TJ Maxx online (sold out )

I can wear it now when we have temperatures in the mid 70’s.

Hat from Amazon for just $6.74

The sleeves are sheer so offer coverage without being too warm, so for early Fall

and Spring it can be worn without a top layer , unless of course I opt for a vest.

Once cooler Fall temps arrive, I could easily add tights , booties or knee high boots.

The opportunities for toppers are a wide range due to the navy background.

If I ignore the other colors and concentrate on the Navy, I had certain color combos come to mind

and I tried them out and they all worked.

Some Examples of this are

Mustard Yellow


Kelly Green

In addition I can play off colors in the Print  to add toppers in




Hot Pink


I also tried Pattern Mixing with a Navy & White Striped Cardigan 

By Changing different boots,  booties, sandals, and pumps , there

are so many options available to me for just this one dress.

That is the very reason I want to do this no shop year, to really explore the versatility of items I own.

To really push my creativity and see how many ways I can style a piece is why I started blogging and chose my blog name.  I would have showed some other options for this dress, but alas, I’ve been dealing with sinus headaches, so that will wait for another post. 


I am so grateful that after several days of intense sinus pressure headaches, I finally had full relief late this afternoon. 

I am grateful that I opted to go back to sleep after waking up just feeling lousy and that I indeed succeeded in actually falling back to sleep.  

I am grateful that my homeschooling teen stepped up and didn’t take advantage of my need for sleep and did his scheduled assignments and even unloaded the dishwasher!  

I am grateful for a great weekend and after a bit of a fiasco , finally getting my son the right size pants at great prices. 

I am grateful for the fun Sunday of watching my best freinds daughter living her dream of performing on stage in her first play.  She was a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz.

Wow Tracey…I’m in love with this dress paired with those booties—totally modern & hip!!! I used to have a pair of open toed booties, but they wore out….now I’m thinking I might need another! jodie

If you wore out the first pair, chances are you would definitely use a new pair, lol.
