Versatile Style by Tracey

Posts Tagged ‘Black and Blue

Introducing my sense of humor… After enduring a day of rain and high winds that howled through out the night and disturbed my sleep… I decided to express my feelings in today’s outfit… All I could think of for inspiration was Black & Blue…


I had a strong desire to wear this new for Spring Jacket I purchased awhile ago from QVC’s  Motto line… I was happy to find it on clearance and still available since I purchased it a few months ago…   It is a lightweight, unlined, nylon jacket.  Here I have it with the belt tied in the back,  but you can see it better on the link…


Notice my new sunglasses that I purchased while on vacation in preparation for summer.   You see me wearing sunglasses a lot  in my photos because I have a sensitivity to the sun and can get headaches very quickly.  While I have brown eyes, mine are very light colored which my Optometrist said leads to the sensitivity…

IMG_2481I loved how the wind sometimes captures my hair or in this case my blouse … I was never much of a blouse wearer in years past, but have recently grown to appreciate them more.   This one is by Land’s End and found at Salvation Army thrift store along with a green twin… Blouses can be pretty expensive and it is surprising how many brand new looking ones  can be found at thrift stores.  Other than a crisp white one, I may never buy blouses brand new again, since discovering the wealth of quality ones in great condition hiding like treasures at thrift stores…

Dear Readers do you like blouses?  If so I challenge you to head to your local thrift store and see if you have the same success in this category that I have….  Do you like the black and blue color combo?  So many ways to wear this combo, hope I have inspired you to have some fun with it….

Gratitude:  I am grateful that I was able to go back to sleep this morning to make up for my late night and the disturbance of the wind…

I am grateful that the branch that fell on the roof last night that scared us all, was small and did no damage… I am grateful that my children all pitched in to help me clean the kitchen and cook dinner tonight..  I am grateful that Friday I am taking a road trip with my two middle children to look at Virginia Commonwealth University  they are both interested in (Ashley applied there for Grad school and is awaiting an answer).
