can you believe it, gang? 2021 is in sight! in just five days, the countdown around the world will begin, and we will be singing auld lang syne, a song synonymous with the new year. many of us will be happy to bid adieu to 2020. once we pack our beloved Christmas decorations in boxes and take down our tree, it’s time to say goodbye to the holidays and an entire year. come January 1st, we’re more than ready to reset, renew, and refresh. there will be lots of blog content focused on health and wellness, home organization, and beauty. so stay tuned!

It’s so nice to review all the favs. You are an inspiration to all of us. For me, at 70, I purchased my first black leather moto jacket this year. I do a wardrobe refresh each season, and for spring 2021 I will be on the hunt for a navy blazer to wear with cropped jeans, white tee and my Chuck Taylors! I told my physician this fall that in my head I’m still 25! I’m looking forward to what you inspire us with this spring.
i am certain you look adorable in that black leather moto jacket. and it goes with everything.
Good timely reminder tips as we look forward to a lifestyle reset. Thanks.
we all need reminders. january is the perfect time for a lifestyle refresh.
Where did you get the big round tortoise shell sunglasses? Love love love them.
the tortoise sunglasses are Prada about five or six years old.
Thank you for all the inspirations, and cheers to the new ones to come!
Above all, wishing you and your family a happy and healthy New Year!
thank you, liz! happy new year.
My favorite 2020 OOT was on the post Fridays with Oscar/Noshing on nachos and wearing camo. This OOTD really represented 2020 and being sheltered in place — comfy, casual and cute!
Athleta is hands down my favorite athleisurewear and activewear. love them!
Thanks for the recap and all you do to put this blog together! I’m loving the high heels even though I did not wear them even once this year! Instead I’ve ordered more and more flats and casual slip on sneakers; don’t know if my feet will ever be able to slip into dancing shoes again but I’m hopeful California will open up soon to make it possible! 2021 has got to be better!
onward to 2021!
I have enjoyed your posts for the past 5 years. After retirement I was searching for examples of how to dress with casual- class and yet
not like an old women afraid of aging. I have a closet full of beautiful clothes and you have provided examples
of how to use my classics. Then supplementing with trendier piece from my favorite places, Talbots and Nordstrom.
Thank you for doing all the work!
thanks so much for embarking on our aging journey together!
Hi Beth, so lovely to look back on all your great posts. You have inspired me still throughout the year. I haven’t managed to get the L’Oreal Ageperfect makeup yet as our stores don’t seem to stock the range, hopefully in the New year, it may have to be an online job.
I’m looking forward to see what you bring for us in 2021, I’m sure it will be great as always xoxo
it’s always good to hear from you, Julie! can’t wait to share new ideas with you in 2021
