Versatile Style by Tracey

Posts Tagged ‘Vest

If you knew me at all you would know that I am not a vest person.  In fact,  I so wanted to be last year and tried on several faux fur vests, which was totally discouraging. I I finally just gave up the pursuit.  With my weight,  I hated the look and it was so disappointing because I really wanted to like it.  So, while thrifting yesterday I saw this vest and gave it a try.  Since today was my day to hang out at the mall with other mothers while our homeschooled children go  to theater class, I opted for this look. I wanted to be super comfy because I am there  from 10 a.m-2:30pm.   This is probably the most casual outfit i have worn in ages.


It was the first chance to wear my new Bass penny loafers that I thrifted for $4 and I consider this my best find to date.

 So, losing weight has it’s perks, I am finally wearing a vest!  I don’t necessarily love it, but love that I don’t dislike it either.

Included this photo for two reasons…. One to show you the colored pattern of the inside of the vest and the hood, the other to show you my St. Maarten shirt I purchased a few years ago and never wore because it was too small. Second reward for my weight loss to date.  The third is my jeans, I went through all my pants yesterday to try to find ones I had tucked away in a smaller size and found these gems.  I love  black jeans!  Straight legged and perfect fit….

I am very much a hand in the pocket person!

Gratitude- I am grateful for a wonderful day spent with two amazing Moms and women I am blessed to call my friends.
