    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.

    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!

    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!

    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
