okay, gang, thanks for your patience this past month. january was long tech headache for this girl. the good news is the site migrated to the Rolls Royce of hosting companies yesterday to handle the influx of traffic. every year we take a good hard look at what goes on behind the scenes to keep the blog in tip-top shape. think of it as taking your car in for a routine check-up. when the report came back, we realized the blog simply outgrew the last provider. it was time to upgrade. 

there were a few glitches yesterday as the site switched hands from one host to the other. but it should be smooth sailing from here. we’ll see once i hit the publish button… the proof is always in the pudding.

today’s ootd is all about casual ease and built around this gorgeous color scheme of blues and greens. navy is a neutral and goes with everything, including black. but i love the color punch that’s created when paired with green. it’s sporty and chic. this navy blue duster by eileen fisher is organic cotton and a dream to wear. so is this slub cotton tee from j.crew. add a pair of skinny jeans and booties and this casual chic outfit springs to life.

    Beth, I love your shorter, more layered, haircut. The shorter layers bring lift to your face. I know it’s hard to let your hairdresser cut a “pixie”, all that falling hair and you thought your hair was short to begin with……keep it up!

    Once again, you expose me to a new color combo. I would have bypassed a top in that green … but now will consider. Thanks again Beth! It’s a great look, especially on you. I too like the haircut but I’ve liked the others too. With short hair, I like change because it keeps it feeling new. Glad to hear your tech issues are solved. Repeat after me … computers are my friends … computers are my friends …

    I have these booties, and I absolutely love them!! They are super comfortable, and I feel so chic and powerful when I wear them (don’t know where the powerful comes from, but, well, I DO feel powerful with them on. Wonder Woman boots??). Beth, I bought them last late summer-early fall, when you paired them with a denim dress (from Target – which I also bought!). Thanks for great style inspiration!

    I like the boots in the outfit too. I’ve just recently decided to buy some neutral suede booties (about the same height shaft and heel but with straps wrapping around) because my black booties are super uncomfortable and I needed something more comfy. I chose a light neutral this time and I’m wondering if you have any tips for styling them as we move into spring so I can get the most wear out of them.

    Hi Beth –

    Beautiful as ever are you! Talk to me about belt/ belt buckles…I look around but don’t seem to land on anything fun or remotely unique, let alone beautiful. I sport a fairly classic style but like to add interest to my outfits and figure an attractive belt can always take a look to another level. Do you have any suggestions for a site, designer, etc. at a moderate price point? Many, many thanks for the inspiration.

      one piece of advice for belts, belt buckles, etc… is to always have one eye out for belts. you never know when or where you will find a fabulous belt. but when you do buy it. belts are great accessories that last for years! my favorite brand is ralph lauren.

        Thanks, Beth…funny you should say, I have one “go to” Ralph Lauren belt that I wear over and over again. Not sure if you’ve ever done one, but I’d love to see a segment on pairing belts with shoes/boots/bags…maybe there’s not enough material there worthy of it but I’d love to learn more about wide vs narrow, colors, pairings, etc. I so enjoy watching your youtube videos. Your style is impeccable and yet you don’t take yourself too seriously; your joy over fashion and the ease in which you share it makes me feel like I’m reconnecting with an old friend. A great way to decompress at the end of the workday -thank you and happy Sunday!

    Glad to hear you got the techy issues resolved. Ah, the joys of technology. You’re smart to constantly enhance, though. I like your hair styled off the face! It’s nice for variety sake, I’m sure. I have a duster similar with a hood, much like this, and I always feel so comfy in it. (And it has pockets, needless to say!)

    Dashing ! I have to ask about the belt, I totally love it, what a unique piece and I am guessing its vintage.
