Versatile Style by Tracey

Mocha Delight

Posted on: October 28, 2016

Some days I feel like an outfit of Neutrals, 

however that doesn’t mean boring.

You might notice my brown pants have a faux leather front , which of course adds 

an element of texture to this look.   

Alas these fabulous pants by Diane Gilman are from previous season.

Here is a close up of the alligator like design.  

DH did a double take at my look today and quite to my surprise complemented it. 

He’s not much for all neutrals or my love of kimonos ,

so his approval meant more.

Here you can see that the back of the pant is a knit 

While these pants are great, these boots are my new Vionic, 

my first of what I hope to be a yearly addition for boot comfort. 

I had wanted a lighter pair of ankle boots,

so it was nice to embrace the comfort in something that was on my wish list. 

They come in 4 other shades including merlot and navy.

I found this cute owl scarf on Jane and just had to have it 

as I have loved owls for most of my life and collected them as a child. 

I added the leave pin for just a bit of bling and thought it was a good play off the branches on the scarf

My mocha open kimono sweater is from Jane, bought previous season. 

After a week of migraines, this neutral look felt just right  and had 

a calming nature that was just what I needed for today.  

After all , I have said it before, I am a mood dresser and use outfits for energy some days.  

Dear Readers I have mentioned my love of Diane Gilman pants and with all the talk about the Velvet 

Trend for the season, thought you might enjoy these pants in great colors.  She had a bootcut version I found over the summer on clearance that I bought it Navy and Grey.    I look forward to styling them soon.  Note, I recommend her line because I love it and do not receive compensation .  

Gratitude

I am grateful to be feeling a little better today ( sinus issues today) after beginning the week with a terrible migraine , that came back every afternoon.   

I am grateful to my daughter for taking today’s photos as my son was still deep into his homeschooling in which he is writing note cards in preparation of doing CLEP exams.   

I am grateful that I’ve done most of the xmas shopping for my daughter and can now begin the boys. 

I am grateful for staying on track and losing about half a pound per day this week.

We must totally be on the same wavelength Tracey, because I wore neutrals today in real life (and for a future blog post). I think that texture on the jeans really makes them stand out and not be “just a neutral”!
It’s a good thing, my mom didn’t see that scarf because she’d have bought it also!!
You do look great in this!! And glad you’re feeling better!

Too funny we both enjoy color but some days the calming effect of neutrals is nice

I love the owl scarf! I went to the website and it said that I “missed it”. Does that mean they are sold out?

Keep a watch as things come back regularly. Things stay up for just a day or two at a time to promote a sense of urgency but a lot of items cycle back through.

here is one on ebay : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Goods-Women-Ladies-Owl-Pattern-Print-Scarf-Warm-Wrap-Shawl-/302111561178?var=&hash=item46574095da:m:m0eOBmSnuAoT7xWMmtZL5rw

Thanks! I rarely buy things online, but I really like the owls!

Well, scarves are an easy thing to buy online as they don’t have to fit right, lol

So many things I love about this look, Tracey. #1 you know I love neutral, #2 the scarf adds some nice color, #3 I just wore my leaf pin (haven’t posted the photos yet, don’t think?) so I really like that, #4 your new booties are great, #5 your pants w/the aligator detail are amaaaazing! 🙂

Thank you Lisa, you really are embracing your new neutrals style. Leaf pins are great for Fall especially since brooches are back on trend.

Love this look with poncho and the scarf!
