Versatile Style by Tracey

Posts Tagged ‘why is style important to you

So the previous post for the week were written on Sunday night when I first began feeling sick and this one is in the midst of a fever and headache, so don’t expect brilliant or insightful writing…. Posting this at 2 a.m. because I couldn’t sleep and hope to be sound asleep in the morning when I usually post…

IMG_1499This is a tunic that I bought probably two years ago and I love it.  I never thought of myself as much of a bohemian , but every once in awhile that moods strikes me.  Do you ever do that, dress in a different style than what you consider  your norm?


Sylvia at  40 Plus Style has started a neat style challenge this year and is asking us questions daily.  Her first question was asking ,why style is important to you? 

And my answer was: traceyliz65 January 7, 2013 at 9:19 am

For me style is a form of artistic expression. It is a chance to be creative and it is also very much tied to my self esteem. I dress to make myself feel great. As a stay at home mother of four, I could just cop out, but instead I prefer to do dress well and have so much fun with it as a way to care for myself. Being a mother is so much about caring for others and this is how I have made sure that I never took myself off the list.


The second question was asking if you could describe your current style….

And my response was:   traceyliz65 January 8, 2013 at 11:48 am

I am currently sick and feverish so know my answer will not be as well written as it could be. I have been resisting defining my style as I think it is fluid and every changing. I would have to say right now I love the word Sassy in reference to my style and have been receiving that compliment a lot lately. The words Feminine with and Edge seem to be resonating with me lately…. If anyone has any insights for me, I am open to hearing them… I have lots of photos on the forum and on my blog….

And Sylvia added:   Sylvia January 8, 2013 at 12:19 pm

You are right that style is fluid and ever evolving, but I think it’s good to understand your style personality. You don’t necessarily have to give it a label though, but if one of your objectives is to develop a signature style, it may be good to know what you are attracted too.
I would say that feminine with an edge is a good description for you. Other words that come to mind is rock and roll (you like your leather jackets and boots, belts and structure). Your style is fairly casual, but you dress it up with colours and accessories. You have a bit of a bohemian vibe as well, since you do like to dress it up with accessories and scarves.
Take care Tracey. Hope you feel better soon.

I think this applies to my winter looks, I love boots and leather jackets because I hate cold.  I wonder if my answer will be completely different in the Spring and Summer where I am definitely more feminine and dare I say sassy….

Dear Readers have you ever attempted to answer such questions and are you over 40 and wanting to join Sylvia’s challenge sign up at her site?  If younger you should still ask yourself these questions and go to her site for more details to help you answer them.. I would love to hear your answers!  So Comments are welcomed and appreciated!  

Gratitude: I am so grateful that my twelve year is feeling well and only had some brief cold symptoms, not the full blown flu!  I am grateful that my husband has been coming home late and still cleaning up the kitchen… I am grateful that last night he came home by 7pm (not the normal 11pm or later).
