I was so excited to get back to blogging and doing an Outfit Post that I 

Laid out my Look last night , including the jewelry, lol 

Check out this blog : https://www.elegantlydressedandstylish.com/my-afternoon-at-charlottes-soft-surroundings-beauty-products/

This look is very much my style for a few reasons, 

Color, Pattern, Cute Jeans and Wedges!  

Of course, I had to add in a layered necklace

look to finish off my maximal style!  

My shorter necklace is actually one my sister made, 

she made jewelry to sell and wear herself as a hobby. 

The Jeans are my favorite jean designer, Diane Gilman  ( I may be addicted) 

are a fun cropped flared version.   

I haven’t tried them with booties yet, but 

will in the future to extend their wear- ability . 

The Babydoll Tunic, I picked up from Jane  is a great style, fitted in the bust with

the empire waist and perfect flair to help camouflage the menopause tummy. 

I will be posting soon about my weight loss method that has resulted in 11 lbs 

and inches off in the past 5 weeks!  

I now have several of these wedges that I picked up over last few years

at TJMaxx by different makers.  I unfortunately have been stuck in 

flats this Summer after twisting my ankle at a Cemetery in July, 

when in Boston to say farewell to my husband’s Aunt Jane.  

*Note I took photos too early when sun was bright, was excited to get back to outfit post! 

As my past readers know I am really big on third completer pieces , 

and right now I am adoring these fun vests.

This one is one of the samples I have been trying out. 

In fact I am looking into selling these. 

I started an Amelia James clothing boutique business 6 months after my sister passed on, 

big mistake and never got it fully off the ground.  I have to sell my inventory and move on as I love the company and clothes , but not the mlm business culture . 

The good news is 

 it taught me was that I want to sell 3rd Completer Pieces!

 

I created this September Calendar for a group of Style Sisters for 

Facebook group that had not been very active to get us back to posting 

pictures and to hep me get back to blogging. 

I invite any of my readers to join in if they wish.

Please if you have not joined my

Versatile Style by Tracey Facebook Group

do so, and post pictures of your outfits!

Today’s Challenge was to wear Anything Leopard

and I knew I wanted to pair it with Burgundy as wearing my 

Creme Boots yesterday , made me want to wear my Burgundy ones today.

Linking up today with Turning Heads Linkup

I bought the dress from Jane.com and like it , but it is 

definitely one that has to be worn with tights as it has no lining. 

I actually searched amazon for burgundy tights at the beginning of the season…

Gotta love Amazon!

I added a pink and gold necklace Charming Charlies necklace to the look , 

another option to accessorize would have been to add a belt and forgo the necklace. 

Leapord Jacket is by Joan Rivers via QVC ,

It’s currently on clearance for just $26 in smaller sizes.

It does run big as I have a 39 inch bust and wear an XS very comfortambly

and can easily button this jacket as it has 

elastic gathering at the waist, a favorite feature of thsi jacket.

I think this would make a great Valentine’s Date Night Outfit! 

I definitely styled this look just for the challenge and not for my day

home with my teen homeschooler, lol.  

DH didn’t go to work until 2pm , so he did get a kick out of it .  

When trying to figure out a purse, my son immediately suggested I go with something pink. 

He couldn’t believe I took his suggestion and I swear he stood taller when taking my photos.  

Self Care

I was in a real funk today… Perhaps the lack of sleep…I didn’t let that stop me 

and made the commitment to eat only fruit, veggies and protein today. 

I succeeded in that!  

Gratitude

I am grateful that this morning first thing I had an e-mail from Weight Watchers explaining that they were counting points of fruit and vegetables in smoothies because when blended they don’t offer the same feeling of fullness.  I guess they think you will indulge in more fruit throughout the day so counting it in smoothies will offset that. My smoothie with Chia seeds, green tea and Greek Yogurt along with fruit keeps me full until lunchtime, so still pondering going back to WW. 

I am grateful for a phone call from my brother as he gets ready to leave for a trip to Cancun, lucky guy will be spending his birthday on this work reward trip for all his success.  Nice to share in his joy! 

I am grateful for the anticipation as we  countdown for Thursday Night when my daughter who will  be home. 

I am grateful that I am hearing on the news, that my bimonthly water bill is going to be switching to a smaller bill every month… more convienent for so many.   

I am grateful for the awkward moment when my next door neighbor was walking his dog during my photo shoot, the first time that’s ever happened and made for a good laugh between my photographer and myself!
