Versatile Style by Tracey

Archive for the ‘Mom On the Go’ Category

As a mother of three sons, I have always been careful about show cleavage in my tops. 

                                                                                       I love a good v-neck and wear them often, but fell in love when Amelia James came out with their

Sedona Wrap Top.  I actually have three now, that is how much I adore it.

Posting all the styles and sizes I have available at the bottom of this post 

Three of any one style is my limit as I use to shop and get multiples like a crazy person when I liked them.  

This pretty floral is one I have worn most often. I paired it with Leatherette 

Leggings when I was in San Diego for the Amelia James REP retreat for a fun date night look. 

I have also worn it with white jeans and a black skirt, I have yet to pair it with grey, but every intention as

another way to style this top.   I am also wearing Amelia James Alyeska dolman sleeved cardigan. 

My pants are new for the season, Crepe pull-on  cargo pants by  Lisa Rhinna 

The Sedona wrap top has one snap at the top to keep it in place, cute balloon sleeves with bows at the wrist.

The bottom of the top is also elasticized, which allows it to blouse over perfectly.  You can’t tell here, but I am showing a bit of cleavage, lol 

A recent customer reported back that her husband adored this as a date night top, 

but like that she could wear it with a cami and a skirt to see million dollar clients. 

 We had temps near 70 today, sunny and gorgeous!  

I also bought Lisa Rhinna Cargo pants with the banded bottom for a jogger style and wore them all Summer! 

Note to self, don’t put hands in your pockets, lol 

To purchase simply email me @ KTStylists@gmail.com with size, style and color info and

I will email a PayPal invoice and ship it right out to you, Fingers crossed I get a website in January.

One of the biggest trends for the season is fun sleeve details.

                                                                                                                              A boho lover like myself is tickled about the bell sleeves and imagine my delight

when my new venture as an Independent Rep for Amelia James came out

with a cute bell sleeve top.  I actually got to see the first one in person on my trip to

San Diego in October for our first Rep Retreat.   

My first attempt at taking photos with daylights savings time in place, lol

We are experiencing beautiful 60 degree days after lows in the 30’s at night.

Even in the shade you can see the fun bell sleeve on the Memlo top by Amelia James.

I love the colored leaves, goes nicely with my hair…

I am also debuting my newest open wrap, this one is by Harve Bernard 

I like the hi-low color contrast of the Menlo top with the navy in the wrap and the jeans.  

Doing that contrasting of one color is such an easy formula for putting outfits together and one I use often.  

You can’t wear a bell sleeve top( I am wearing a medium)  and resist the urge to spread your arms out,

my photographer had to deal with my putting my awesome snakeskin purse down, 

to pretend to fly, but alas the photos were not great….

Notice how my snakeskin purse brings out the shades of tan in the wrap,

and I intended to wear tan ankle boots with the look originally, which would have bookended it all. 

Instead, I opted for my Naturalizer navy wedges, as soon enough,

winter will arrive and my boots will be my only option, lol 

I adore the comfort of wedges and will opt for more of these classics in the future. 

These striped versions of the Menlo top are currently available, they retail for $50 ,

but for are currently on sale for $38 and available in Medium6/8 (2) and Large10/12.

I do not have a website yet ,as my company is so new that they are getting one together in the new year, 

and I did not want to do the work of one and have to re-do it.  So, if you want one just email me @KTstylists@gmail.com 

just let me know Menlo – Striped, and Size and I will send a Paypal Invoice and ship immediately.  

 

The Blue option I have in Sizes Small2-4, Medium6/8, Large 10/12 and X-Large14/16. 

Again, Reduced to $38 -email me Size & Blue Menlo @KTStylists@gmail.com 

Gratitude

I am grateful to be back to blogging and the fun feeling I had today putting together this outfit and taking photos. 

I am grateful that I took the time to mourn the loss of my sister, not that I am done, but I am ready to start living fully again. 

I am grateful that my daughter is helping get my homeschooling son ready to take his first CLEP test for Biology. 

I am grateful for some warm days, tomorrow will be 70!  

 

Thanks for Stopping By!  

I love our homeschool bowling on Wednesday, but dressing for it is always about keeping warm! 

The bowlers are moving so they are fine, but us mother’s who watch are another story.  

It is so funny to head out the door with my son in shorts and short sleeves and myself always in pants, short sleeves and a cardigan or jacket in my hand.  

My tunic is actually one from the Amelia James line I sell. 

I have a huge wardrobe and won’t wear my line every day on the blog, 

but quite frankly I really love these new pieces so darn much!  

Every woman should own a great pair of boot-cut jeans and these are ones,

that I must wear with 3-4 inch heels,  are a girl’s best friend.  

If you read my blog, you probably already guessed that these are by 

Diane Gilman!   

I belted this Milan ( all of our Amelia James pieces are named after cities)

because as a petite I wanted to make my legs look as long as possible.

Proportions is the one thing blogging and taking photos taught me.

This can be worn as a dress as well when unbelted and I intend to style it

with black tights, ankle boots, and a leather jacket when temperatures cooperate. 

This may be too short for some women to wear as a dress, but the younger women love it!  

I have this $50  Milan in Size Small – 3x if anyone is interested you can email me @ KTStylists@gmail.com and you can check out videos and albums

on my Facebook page to see other Amelia James styles, eventually, I will get a website together.  

Gratitude 

I am grateful for getting back on track and not craving any sugar these last two days! 

I am grateful for homeschool bowling on HUMP DAY to break up the week. 

I am grateful my daughter is helping my son study and get ready for CLEP testing for Biology, 

I am grateful for this business and the community of supportive women and for finally answering the question, 

“What am I going to do when mothering minor children for 31 years comes to an end?”    

 

 

 

 

 

This weight gain in just a pain and I want to bust out and just conquer this weight loss, but the

struggle of losing weight after menopause is REAL!     

Check out the Link-up for other wonderful bloggers  

I have been doing some research on the success of intermittent fasting, where you do not have anything for 12-16 hours after your last meal the previous day. 

ideally, the goal is to go the 16 hrs for the sceince of it to work.   It seems to work well for men, but that always begs the question, will it be the same for women. 

I found this article and decided to heed the warning to do it every other day.   

After having green tea until 11am. I indulged in my go-to breakfast lately, 

Premier Protein Shake poured over ice into a nice glass as food should feel indulgent…

A banana every morning is my thing and has been most of my adult life.  

 Around 2:30pm  I opted for a full cup of plain greek yogurt with strawberries 

Rocking the protein and fruit for the day, but definitely, need to bump up some

vegetables for snack and dinner.   

Still near 80’s for us here in Virginia Beach!  

Styling one of my Amelia James Memphis Ruffle tops in burgundy with a black stripe. 

I love how figure flattering this top is and that I can style it for my boho loving self by adding a wonderful 

crotchet vest by Indigo Thread Company .   Lots of other options to style this with layers if our weather ever gets cooler!   

I have this wonderful top in several colors and sizes up to 4x, 

you can see them on my latest live sale video on my Facebook Page.   

Eventually I will get a shopping website, but for now you just claim it under the video by using the number and size 

and I can send you an invoice via paypal.   

Gratitude 

I am grateful for my new found vigor and zest for getting this weight loss journey moving! 

 I am grateful for my sister’s Ipod Music to start me dancing in the mornings. 

I am grateful for the fun of reading , ” A Gentleman in Moscow” with my teen age homeschooler. 

I am grateful for this blog to turn to and for making me get dressed today instead of staying in my pj’s.  

 

 

 

As with most of the U.S.A. , I am deeply affected by the images of the devastation in Texas and would like to do something to help. 

I am in a unique position of having a ton of inventory for my Amelia James business and due to a Summer Cold and subsequent sinus infection,

I have been out of commission and need to move this inventory.  In addition to that my sister’s 17yr  old kitty was needing special medical care this last month and has sadly passed on no doubt with my sister.  

I could try to sell the inventory to  the other reps in my company and just make back my cost, but 

I would prefer to use it as a fundraiser and send the profits to aid those in Texas.  I have done some research and would like to donate to Habitat for Humanity

specifically to help rebuild the hurricane devastation.   As I sit here typing this, my hometown  is waiting to see what the next storm Irma is going to do 

and have looked into our own evacuation plans should need be.   This reality makes the Harvey situation even more personal. 

I am sporting a staple in the Amelia James clothing line, a Memphis Ruffle. 

This one is a tank top, but the top comes in short sleeves and even long sleeves 

with both prints and solids.  Not much in my stock of these now but solid long sleeve ones 

coming soon.  

A side view to show the slight high low hem.  

Tomorrow night ,Tuesday September 5th at 8:00 pm  I am going to do a Live Video Sale on my

Amelia James by K&T Stylists Facebook Page  

to benefit Texas. I would love it if my dear readers could join me!  

 In addition I have an Album Posted on the Facebook Page under photos where you can claim 

something and I will send Paypal Invoice via email and there is also a video of dresses posted there that if you 

use the item # and claim” Sold” or mine I can again invoice you.  

Dear Readers, I am back in exercise mode and doing Weight Watchers too.

I am on Day of 8 of this and have been alternating between my Pilates machine with resistance bands 

and Yoga every other day.   I am adding in walking starting tonight.   If that isn’t enough, I am trying

intermittent fasting where you fast for 16 hours by fitting all meals into an 8 hour window.  

The time between 12-16 hours is suppose to be the time when your body kicks into fat burning mode. 

So far, it’s been fairly easy and I will keep you posted on results.   

 

If you are a regular follower of my blog you know my feminine nature and adoration of 

dresses for every day wear, not that special occasion dresses aren’t fun too! 

Therefore it should come as no surprise that in my Amelia James business venture, 

that I would stock dresses.   This one is our Chelan dress and a top seller at $54.  

I prefer it belted to bring it just above my knee and create a fun swing skirt.  

I loved styling the floral with a fun striped bag.  I have this dress in a few colors 

in sizes small to 3x and will be doing a live Facebook sale tonight at 7:30 pm on all dresses for $10 off.

You can find my page HERE and watch it Live or in Replay through the weekend.  

Going Live is a bit nerve wracking and I am so nervous leading up to it, 

but once I get started, I am usually fine.  

I am so blessed to have the support of my children and two of my sons will be 

behind the scenes keeping me straight.   

 Gratitude

I am so grateful for the loving and full support of my family.

I am grateful my husband just called me to wish me luck going live on my own with no business partner. 

I am grateful for a fabulous sunny day!  

I am grateful for this new business venture to distract me from this darn mourning my sister process. 

I am grateful that my husband is also starting a business venture and got word today , that it is a GO!  

 

I find myself saying this a lot these days.  

My shirt actually states, “It is What it is, but it will become what you make of it”  

There is nothing more poignant than this saying right now with the crazy swirling around me, 

that a friend could just blow up our friendship and throw it away  so easily.  

I am curiously ok with it because “It is What it Is”  has been such a part of my 

healthy self talk and not worrying about things I can not control.  

I am so grateful for my self care and strength of knowing who I am in the world.  

I found this tank online, but can not remember if it was a Facebook Ad or 

if I purchased it from TJ Maxx.    

My vest is a Kate & Mallory one that I bought in a few colors this year.  

Mine is sold out, but HERE is what they offer now.  

After having a awful Summer cold for the past week, 

I am finally feeling better and grateful as it was a tough one and

I also ended up passing it to the rest of my family.   

In other happenings, I finally cleared out my sister’s condo and said my goodbye’s to it. 

I am grateful that we had time to do this and come to terms with it all and it was a peaceful goodbye and feeling 

so grateful that this condo, steps from the beach was her dream and comforting that it was her final home. 

 

Dear Readers,   I am having to  completely start my  Amelia James Clothing Boutique from scratch as a huge part of this type 

of business is growing a Facebook group and posting Live Video Sales.  Unfortunately, with the dissolving of my business 

partnership, my Facebook was taken down and away from me.   If anyone would like to join my new page (HERE)  and see my new venture 

Or support me by sharing with friends, that would be awesome!    I am planning my first solo Live Video Sale , Tomorrow Thursday at 7:30pm 

If you are blogger who would like to partner up by writing a post in exchange for a free piece of clothing, comment and let me know 

and I will contact you!
