Versatile Style by Tracey

 This  tan shirt dress has potential to serve as versatile workhorse.  I bet, if I was so inclined I could come up with at least a months worth of looks for that dress. I am not inclined to do such a venture as 30 looks… I am a new blogger, though and in time reserve the right to change my mind and revisit that idea….

I chose a classic, preppy coloring of pink and tan for the first go round with this dress. I have to confess that I purposely resisted my first three ideas of orange, brown and red. Those colors will all work well, but I have been wearing those colors lately as for me they are staples for cooler seasons.  I took advantage of the warm weather and took these photos before the temperature started the big drop.  Glad I did so as today I felt exhausted and like a good day to stay in pjs…Right now it is around 30 degrees…

I think this is a great, easy Mom on the Go look for any of us mothers who refuse to succumb to the t-shirt , jeans and tennis shoes… Funny, I only wear tennis shoes for working out…And with Fluidity I go barefoot!!!  So, I’ve taken a few warm weather looks and I see already what I mentioned before that my Spring and Summer style becomes less edgy…I like this side of me and do have to embrace my conservative side.

I did a replacement of ballet flats in early fall and just love these Aerosoles and have them in black as well. The pink or currently on clearance at $19.99.   I did not get any pointed flats when I made my purchase of new ones, so may have to add in a pair or two come Spring… Frustrating because I thought I did such a good job when I got 4 new pairs to replace worn out ones.

Dear Readers, do you change your style during different seasons?  What’s on your current wish list for Spring?  Any plans to get pointed flats? 

Gratitude: I am so grateful for the health of my children and family.  If you are grateful for the health of your family please join me today in sending out prayers to a fellow blogger @ thrifted or scripted as she fights breast cancer.

I have never gone thrift shopping before and found so many dresses in my size with the half price colored tag.   I usually end up loving dresses two sizes too big.  So when this crazy phenomenon arose, I could not do anything but try them on and purchase them all! 6 Dresses cost me just about $22.00.  

Dresses are really a great thing to wear now in the final stages of my weight loss journey.  They are so easy to style and extremely versatile. I hope you don’t get bored with seeing me in dresses and skirts a lot over the next month…

Now on to showing the dresses….

This one is probably my favorite, as it is not so common and really looks fabulous on me.  I am not just saying that based on my own view… It just so happens my husband had a break and was home when I brought the dresses home.  So, of course a fashion show was in order… You can’t see the crossover top,but it looks great on!

A tan shirt dress style is a classic and the ultimate in versatility  The wheels are turning and in overdrive of how many ways to style this one.  This is definitely one of those workhorse items. Doesn’t look like much on the hanger….

This is just a basic shift dress in a fabulous color.  I like the v-split neckline and the detail on the bottom.  This dress really is a four season dress with so many ways to style it with layers for cooler temperatures.

This is just a basic black & white print, but I loved the fit and can see me wearing it in warmer weather with just sandals and with boots and jackets or sweaters now.  I felt sassy in this one. I really like skirts with a little volume for swirling when I walk…a remnant of early childhood..

I loved the fit and just the little ruffle detail on the bottom for an added femininity   I felt like dancing in this one and did so for my fashion show with my husband.  I grabbed a cardigan and styled this right away.  I can see this one styled with a pull- over sweater to look like a skirt and in fact, put the following together as an example. I have to say it was funny the next morning,when my husband was still talking about my fashion show and how quickly I was thinking of ways to style each. He remembered specifics and talked about why he liked it. He listened, he really listened!

The final dress is an Ann Taylor Loft and I think this is multi-seasonal as well.  In the store, I instantly saw this one styled with a green jacket or tan one.  I also pictured this in summer with my short sleeved green sweater and green wedged slingbacks… Of course that little string of a belt has to go and I just happen to have a new green one…

Just for fun, here is a winter sweater over the striped dress , add tights and a boot and it’s winterized…

In the past, I have never owned as many dresses as I currently do.  Since I love wearing them as casual Mom on the Go looks, I will get a lot of use out of  all of these.  I can so picture summer and me at my goal weight….

Linking up with InstaFriday, so go see what everyone is up to… And go see Friday Faves

Gratitude:  I am grateful that my daughter is feeling better since exams start next week.  I am grateful that Ashley’s college is making a ice rink for the weekend and my daughter will have a blast and a much needed break.  I am grateful that Connor is continuing to read his book with enthusiasm!  I am grateful for weekends!

Dear Readers, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and come back and see what I am up to next week.  As always your comments are welcomed and appreciated.
