Versatile Style by Tracey

Black and White Prints

Posted on: March 17, 2016

I have this real love of pattern in my outfits, 

and one that I love is anything in black and white. 

I’ve had this zebra print jean jacket for awhile and never tire of it. 

It might just have been the beginning of my love of black and white patterns.

Black and white with pops of any color leads to so many outfit 

opportunities and that’s why I now own lots of options for that. 

I have polka dot cardigan, pants and a skirt. 

I also have a black and white aztec cardigan that makes a big impact. 

I like having pieces of each category meaning, bottoms, tops and toppers in the black and white prints

and even added a pair of houndstooth print shoes as another option. 

I highly encourage you my dear readers to evaluate your wardrobe and see if adding a touch of any black and white print in say a pair of pants or a shoe are in order to add versatility into your style?

My hair started off like this….

Then in seconds, onto this

And even this, with my jacket blowing open, lol. 

I get a kick out of photos my young photographer catches like this. 

And promptly thought I always hope I have hair to blow in the wind 

and don’t go to shorter haircuts as I age, lol…

I broke out my Diane Gilman trouser jeans for this look. 

This was actually Tuesday’s outfit as I am behind.

This along with a salad was my dinner Tuesday night and a family favorite. 

It’s barbecue chicken breast layered with slices of tomato, bacon and topped with 

sharp cheddar that has been put in the oven on broil to melt. 

Over the years I’ve discovered I like grilling the chicken plain, then dumping it into a 

bowl of the barbecue sauce to coat it for more barbecue flavor that doesn’t melt off in the cooking. 

I eat it in this dish, but my guys pile it on a nice roll for a sandwhich!  

Looking for some white dishes like this to make individual dishes , Here is what I found at Amazon. 

Gratitude

I am grateful for a fabulous , fun Wednesday spent with great people for lunch, a walk at Mt. Trashmore and the bowling clinic.  

I am grateful for the women in my life and friendships that enrich my spirit. 

I am grateful to my husband’s dear friend who met him for lunch yesterday and brought him Irish Soda Bread, tasted just like the beloved scones we ate daily in Ireland!  

I am grateful that after having a few bites of the bread, my dear husband asked me if I wanted to go for a late night walk and is supporting my wanting to lose this menopausal weight gain.  

I am grateful for quality time on our hour long late night walk.  

I am grateful to my son away at college who had a wonderful surprise package waiting for his younger brother when we returned from our day of adventure.  It was  a wonderful Star Wars poster for the redecorating we are doing of his room. I love this relationship between my two youngest!  

I am grateful that when we were in the car on our way to the second bowling of the day, that my son away at college called to talk to his brother and asked to be put on speaker phone to share his funny adventure with our rabbit that he has at school with him… She jumped up on his bed right into his plate of curry chicken, turned herself orange and had to be bathed, lol.   

And Oh Yeah, Happy ST. Patrick’s Day!  

I’ll post my Green Outfit Later this afternoon…
