Versatile Style by Tracey

Posts Tagged ‘Winter Outfits

It took me a bit longer to get back to blogging than I originally planned!
I have decided that I will return for 3 days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
My life these days is busy supporting my youngest son’s goals of going to Vegas this summer for a Junior Gold Bowling Tournament!

That means spending 4 days a week in bowling alleys,
two days of leagues and two days with coaches.

This was last year in Detroit for his first Junior Gold Event

I have to say he is the bravest soul I know, as he went and competed after

switching from traditional one handed bowling to two -handed style just 3 months

before the tournament and he was also pretty new to bowling on crazy oil patterns like the pros!
I have learned so much as a bowling mother about this sport! 
He has come along way since the Detroit tournament in July.
I feel so blessed to be on this journey with him.
If anyone knows anything about bowling , his new high score is 275 and
his high 3 game series is 691. He has a goal to reach 700 series soon.

 

Now, I will end with a bunch of outfits I have worn this season,

I definitely am loving kimonos , lol

I wanted to add femininity to my football style, lol

Our movie theater showed games this year and I happened

to park next to this vehicle so had to get a photo.

I added this zebra print cardigan for Fall from Loft,

as you know I love black and white prints as they are

so versatile and can be paired with any color.

I added in some Carmel colors this season with this poncho and top.

Fuchsia has to be one of my favorite colors and I love it with Navy.
My snakeskin booties are new for the season and I love them!

 

You can’t tell but these jeans are by my favorite designer

Diane Gilman via HSN and have an embroidered Peacock!
I love vests , longer ones for leatherette leggings are a must.

I joined Get Your Pretty On’s Fall and Winter Challenges and faux leather leggings

were all the rage and a polarizing item that not everyone embraced, but I am daring and love them.


Again my love of black and white prints prompted a purchase of polka dot cardigan.

Black faux leather leggings this time around.
Leopard is another versatile print that goes with everything!


January 15th I celebrated 29 years of marriage, boy have we lived through a lot!

Us now, enjoying our love of football despite different teams!

Gratitude

I am so grateful to have moved past the worst of the mourning stage, losing my sister was tough stuff, as so much of who I am is because of who she was…

I am grateful that my oldest found a way to honor my sister’s legacy by embracing her
“Work Hard, Play Harder“ way of life and he is now doing Improv and embracing his innate artistic ability!

 I am grateful for a fun night going to see “ A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood “ with that poignant moment of Mr Rogers asking “Who loved you into being”. I seriously thought of 25 people right away !

 I am grateful for my Movie B_ uddy and the days we go out to break up my time at bowling alleys!

I am grateful for my New Years resolution to spend one day a month with my dearest friend who is busier than I am supporting her daughter in dance and acting in plays.

Posting at 1 am as I am still awake and just in case Tuesday morning my sinuses are acting up like they were Monday Morning!!!! Love the rise in temperatures, but my sinuses don’t.. Suppose to be 65 today, but snow by Friday….

I am loving this no shopping thing as I am really exploring my closet and since beginning blogging I have been dipping my toes into the waters of Pattern Mixing.. Pardon me,  if I keep repeating myself about the no buying thing and really working my closet… For someone who is a weekly thrifter, this is such a new and marvelous opportunity to dig into my closet and create!

I love this scarf and was inspired to try it with the green striped sweater since there is that color polk- a -dot in the scarf… This would definitely work as a spring outfit without the jacket and some pumps instead of boots…

IMG_1781I took these photos on Sunday with my 12 year old late in the afternoon as the sun was setting so it was pretty cold and we did it very quickly… So glad for the warm up in temperatures!!!!  I may even get to forgo my boots for a day and wear pumps!!!!

IMG_1777I am so glad I embraced the pattern mixing trend and feel much more comfortable with it than I did in the beginning.  Have you embraced this tend?  Did you find it strange at first?  Are you more comfortable after giving it a go?  Chime in Readers, I love hearing from you!

Gratitude:  I am grateful to my husband for getting me sinus medication yesterday when my head hurt so bad I couldn’t move (nice reaction to the 10 degree increase in temps, wonder what another 25  degree increase Tuesday will bring?)  I am grateful that the sinus medications worked and I made it out of bed by noon.. I am grateful that I took two sets of outfit photos on Sunday!  I am grateful for all the comments left yesterday by my dear readers!  

I am so looking forward to the Year 2013.  This Year my daughter will graduate from college!  I will continue my second year homeschooling and am so happy about Connor’s  reading improvement.  I can’t wait to see the results of all the hard work we will be doing in writing.  This is the year I will reach my goal weight!  This is the Year without New Year’s Resolutions.

I DON’T NEED ANY RESOLUTIONS THIS YEAR BECAUSE I AM EXACTLY WHO AND WHERE I WANT TO BE AT THIS STAGE OF MY LIFE!  That is an amazing thing to be able to say after such a long road of getting back to finding myself. I don’t want to get too wordy here, as I think that says it all!

IMG_1350

THIS IS MY YEAR TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND JUST CELEBRATE, LIFE, LOVE, FAMILY AND SPIRITUALITY!  THAT’S RIGHT I AM DECLARING 2013 THE YEAR OF CELEBRATION!   I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN ME!

Celebrating doesn’t mean that our lives have to be perfect, it just means that we concentrate more on the things that are right and working than on our problems and what is not working.  It means looking every day for things to be grateful for and to try to create a life rich in the things that make us feel that way.  So with that definition, I hope you too can make 2013 The Year of Celebrating Your Life!  

At 40 Plus Style, Sylvia has a Challenge for Wearing One Dress Two Ways and Today’s Looks are MY Submission!  I really like both these looks and color combos.  This brown sweater dress is so versatile and I have another look already and will reval it soon.                                      

Happy 2013 my Dear Readers and as always your comments are welcomed and appreciated.
