Versatile Style by Tracey

Posts Tagged ‘Vest with Dress

Here is take two of the Olive vest that I coveted and finally ordered from Kohl’s


I knew after wearing this with a skirt, that my next pairing was going to be with this polk a dot dress thrifted dress.  While on the topic of thrifting, the purse and shoes are also thrifted.. Great example of merging thrifted items with new purchases.


This outfit has that perfect blend of lady-like feel with the stiletto heels and the ruffled bottom on the dress to make me feel like dancing.

Even better is the Ying?Yang feeling I so crave to balance the lady-like features , provided by the more masculine utility vest.


When I get that blend of femininity and masculinity going in my outfit, is when I feel the most like myself.  I worried about how to make this work for warmer months and really love this look.  “I really nailed it” is what keeps coming to mind.  If only I could feel this good in every look I create.


I am a stay at home mother, so this look isn’t practical for my every day life, but  whenever I can this is the real me, not a role I play!

Dear Readers, Do you have a signature combo that you put together that makes you feel most like your insides match your outsides?  If so, what is it and how do you create it?  I so embrace both the fact that I am a strong, confident  woman with my sassy, yet sophisticated  feminine side.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, did you do anything special? 


I am grateful that my husband had July 4th off!  

I am gratefult that the guys went go-carting, to golf driving range and then we met up for dinner and the movie “Now You See Me”, a full day of fun!

My husband and I are both surprised and grateful that we were all on the same page about our day’s activities and skipping the fireworks, 

I am grateful that today, July 5th  is my daughter’s 22nd birthday today and  for the chance to celebrate her.

I am grateful to my husband for reinstating our nightly walks (when he gets home early enough) and combined with two on my own, that’s 4 walks in three days and I am feeling it.
