Versatile Style by Tracey

Posts Tagged ‘Petite fashion blogger

  1. Monday’s can be difficult, especially when you are trying to get yourself out of a funk.
  2.  
  3. A  solid Determination is Key and that was how I began my day! 

I had trouble falling asleep last night ( my sleep has been off for a week), but I managed to sleep until 10am, resulting in a good night’s rest! 

Music is such a mood booster for me, so I began by turning on my sister’s Ipod, that girl had great taste in music!  

I got some work things done, then got ready to go get my nails done.

I had been hibernating and fighting off sinus issues ( thank goodness I succeeded and it never got bad) , 

and had neglected my nails since before Christmas!   

                                                                     The other Key to my self-care of the day was that to get to the salon, I walked, hence my Sketchers for a shoe choice.  

It was a beautiful day in the 60’s and a bit windy, hence my flat hair in this shot, lol. 

I am wearing an Amelia James Aurora dress/ tunic, it actually goes to my knee like a dress.

I really love it and think it is such a versatile piece because it is a sleeveless dress that

can be worn layered, making it a full four- season piece.  

I only have one more left in my stock, a size 2X if anyone is interested.  

It comes in solid shades and I hope to order a few of those soon.  

My sweater is also from my AJ line and I have it in sizes 

XS, M, L, XL and 3X, comment if you’d like one. 

They retail for $50 ,but I am selling them for $35 now.  

Gratitude

I am grateful that my son’s financial aid came through before the government shut down allowing him a peaceful weekend. 

I am grateful that I finally got my nails, done they were driving me nuts and I am sure my DH will be happy to stop hearing about it, lol 

I am grateful for a decent amount of sleep as last week it suddenly went haywire!  

 

I am grateful for my parents, as today a group I belong to posted how emotions were dealt with in family growing up and I was the only one

who commented in a positive way… You see my mother was so funny, she told us that when she said No, we could plead our case and sometimes she might

change her mind, but others she would remain firm, but would always explain her reason.  She had telling us No in a compassionate way down to perfection!  

I can’t imagine what losing my father at 13 would have been like if our emotions were something that was allowed! 

I was truly blessed to feel seen heard and valued as a child! 

So that begs the question my dear readers, how was your family regarding expressing emotions?  

And, if you get in a funk, what do you do to help get yourself out of it?

Today’s GYPO FAll Challenge Inspiration was all 

about an orange sweater.  

I love the color orange for Fall and wear it often with browns, 

But it works well with a classic Blue Jean shade.

I was so excited to debut my wonderful addition to Fall , 

this Guiliana sweater that I bought over the summer and the Liz Lange Tunic 

that I found on clearance and is now sold out.  

I love the mulit media sweater with the faux suede feel that has a snakeskin print. 

My husband came home this afternoon for a break and couldn’t stop touching it, it really is softer than you’d expect. 

This Sweater comes in 7 colors and is $29.95 and available in sizes up to 3x.

I always adore Rachel Zoe’s outfits where she pairs tunic tops and 

bootcut jeans and love how this outift made me feel.  

I’ve had these Levi’s jeans forever.  

Rachel Zoe always wear her bootcuts dragging on the ground and from a stylist view, 

that is the right way to rock the look.  

I on the other hand love being able to showcase my beloved Orange pumps from

Payless’s Comfort Plus line that I bought last season.

I loved putting one side of my hand behind my ear, to really showcase 

my gold hoop earrings, which I wear quite often.  

Dear Readers, Today, I didn’t have to Fake Fall today as it was in the high 60’s and windy today. 

Of course that was due to the hurricane , but we are due to get back into the 80’s by Wednesday. 

Funny thing is that Wednedsay is homeschool bowling day and I dress like Fall anyway, as it’s cold in that alley! 

I do wonder how I will manage the Fall Challenge with these hotter temps. 

I never did a Fall one of these before because last year I was in Ireland at this time!  

I have packed away my sandals and will take advantage of wearing pumps and flats with bare feet these next weeks until I unpack the boots and go full on with them….

So Dear Readers, Are you packing away Summer and getting out Fall, or are you already all the way into Fall already?  

Gratitude

I am grateful that my husband popped in this afternoon for a fun break from my homeschooling mom day. 

I am grateful that my son got back on track despite the interruption and finished his goals for the day. 

I am grateful for Kiniesology tape and the relief it is going to give DH from a pulled back muscle. 

I am grateful that my friend’s daughter is finally living her dream of doing acting and dancing with our local Hurrah players and will be in the Wizard of Oz this weekend.   

 I am grateful that my husband got off work early and asked us to a quick dinner and movie night. My teen homeschooler loved , The Martian, an excellent movie in all our books and he is so picky…
