    Looking fierce, as always. ⚓️⚓️

    Another really great outfit, Beth. I love to wear blazers in the summer so I’m glad to see your series. Here in Texas, it can be blazing hot and then you walk into a theater or restaurant and it’s absolutely freezing.

    Hi Beth, what a lovely outfit. I’ve noticed that you have some really lovely handbags too but they are only small ones. I’ve always carried a large handbag mainly because I tend to take everything but the kitchen sink with me and I’m sure, well know I don’t really need a good portion of it. I’m trying to scale things down so I’ve purchased some smaller bags to stop me from putting in so much but I do struggle at times. For those ladies out there that are trying to do the same, maybe you could give us some tips and suggestions please, any help would be much appreciated. Xoxo

      Julie, One thing that works for me is to carry a large handbag with everything I think I will need and inside that I carry a small crossbody with wallet and phone. When I get ready to shop I only take the cross body with me, leaving the larger bag, with nothing worth losing, in the car just in case.

  4. Susan says:

    That’s a great outfit. I’m wearing something similar today – only red blouse instead. We’re on the same page.

  5. Billie says:

    Hi Beth
    Love your style. When is it not good to wear denim on denim?

  6. LAURA BEEMAN says:

    This is one of my all-time favorite outfits. It is versatile enough to wear anywhere. I LOVE when you show how the classics still feel fresh. Great job!

  8. Christelle says:

    i love your daily news though.

    Hi Beth, can you tell me if that blazer is lined. It finally came back in stock at Ralph Lauren, but the description is vague about the lining.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      the blazer has a partial lining. the sleeves and upper back are lined. but the seams have a beautiful finish. the inside of the garment looks just as beautiful as the outside. hope this helps. xo

  10. Renata says:

    Looking fab Beth! Have a great weekend 🙂 Renata xo

  11. Madeleine says:

    How long/short should the blazer be…sometimes they are “dowdy” looking

    • Beth Djalali says:

      there are so many different lenghts for blazers, so it depends on personal preference. the most important thing is the proportions . are they right for your height.? if you are 5’4″ or under you need to be shopping in the petite section. and if you are 5’8″ and above a tall might just be what you need

  12. Mary Lou Werstein says:

    I love this look! So fun yet chic. Take care during these turbulent times.

  13. Valerie Profit says:

    Speaks to me.

  14. Mollie M. says:

    I Iike this outfit today Beth. I don’t have a check shirt and it certainly looks so great with the navy pants and blazer.
    Hope all is well with you. Enjoy each day reading your posts. Are you letting your hair grow?

    Love a blazer with jeans- makes a casual outfit classy. Talbots is a great place for classic blazers – a hint for your readers Talbots has plus and also plus petite sizes. It’s really hard to find plus petites but theirs work great for me. Also, their sales are great. Their very best is always on end of season items. They will be good next year because they are so classic and won’t be out of style.

  16. Becky says:

    This is one of my favorite outfits. It’s a great casual chic look. I’m looking to step up my jacket game because they look so great with jeans. I also love gingham. We are one more day closer to being out & about again.

  17. Andrea says:

    I adore blazers. They are my fave ‘jacket’ and I could literally live in that outfit 24/7 365💕. The slim fit jeans give it such a modern edge. For myself, nothing, nothing, we’ll, except for a great lipstick, makes me feel as fantastic as a well tailored wool blazer.

    Just a note to say Happy Easter to you and all your devoted followers. In that vein, whether it’s religious or just chocolate, please do not have a gathering, do not go to church, and do not visit those grandchildren. If you truly value life and the lives of those most precious to you, do not endanger them…FaceTime, Snapchat or telephone. Give the gift of life 🎁

  18. Suzanne M Smith says:

    I do love those gingham wedge shoes with it. I remember seeing Kate wearing very similar. You’re stylin’, Beth. You and the team have done a yeoman’s job with this current craziness in the mix. Kudos.

  19. Kelly says:

    Hi Beth,

    I love the outfit in today’s post. I tend to wear a smart casual look but never wore blazers (maybe because I had to wear them to work everyday in the 90s). This year my daughter got me the jcrew black sweater blazer and I love it. Just a little less formal but looks great with my vertically striped button up shirt and jeans. It looks equally good with an animal print or horizontally striped tee. Always enjoy your blog and videos!

  20. Ann says:

    I, too, love blazers. They are extremely versatile. Just like that LBD, many can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

  21. Sharon says:

    I live in Illinois and I think we have been on shelter in for about a month. Lucky my son’s family is close. I eat with them a couple times a week. I get to pet their dog which is relaxing. It gets lonely as a widow but I’m doing ok

  22. Eve says:

    I love gingham and those shoes are just perfect with this outfit. You look amazing.! There are Blazers I like but they must be of the loose, casual type with soft material.
    I am cooking a lot more, reading, dreaming up future projects and staying in touch by Internet and phone but I miss, as my Mama called it, running the roads. LOL

  23. Eva Popovich says:

    Best outfit ever! Love the gingham and the shoes. Wish I could have seen the belt a little better.

  24. Lyn says:

    I love, love, love this look. It’s my style – I call it updated preppy. I have only left the house once every two weeks for a large grocery haul. Actually, I am finding that by doing a major shop like this it is easier as far as meal planning. I just make sure that I store fresh produce properly, and it really holds up pretty well. With so much out of our control these days I feel that fixing great healthy, immunity building meals at least makes me feel I am doing something to protect us. Today we are going to our daughter’s home about 15 miles away, and we are going to drop off Easter goodies for our granddaughters. I purchased everything prior to the virus outbreak and each girl’s gifts are being put in plastic bags. After we set them on the porch, we are going to go back to our car and they will come out and open their treats. We are very close to our family and this has been the hardest thing of all – the separation from our little gals. When I saw this morning’s news about a woman who just lost both her husband and adult son and she has to sit in her car for their burial it really hit home. We are so lucky to have each other. I am a very positive thinking person but it’s getting harder.
