    Another perfect ootd, Beth. I love vests and wear them year round. They’re a perfect addition to add oomph to your outfit.

    Being from the Northeast originally, I love me my black and white! Cute basic ootd. Who is doing your photography now…just curious.

    I went back to that previous post and had a chuckle at the English teacher who is not a fan of ee cummings’ style. I remember discovering the poet in high school, thanks to my English teacher. Wonderful! That teacher had a way of bringing Shakespeare to life and opening our eyes to all the wonders English literature has to offer. Thanks for that. I hadn’t thought about my teacher in a long time, but today I remembered, and counted my blessings for the gift of learning, discovery and broader horizons that he brought into our teenage lives. They don’t make them like that any more.

    Hi Beth
    So sorry to hear about mr style, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. It is a hard journey but family, faith, and love make it possible to travel. I try to concentrate on making each day the best day. I have not bought jeans for years, if you were going to get one pair which ones would it be?
    Thank you.

  8. Love the look but I have a question. I looked up the vest and the care instructions said dry clean. Is that what you do?

    Very nice. Will have to consider this when I make my next list of “what I need.”

    Amazing outfit – and you wear it well! Black and white seem to be timeless.

  11. Mary L Grogan says:

    Nice outfit. I can find those pieces already in my closet, thanks!

  12. Nancy Bailey says:

    You look great in black and white.

    Love the look, I would never thought of wearing a vest in summer but I love it!

  14. Love this look!
    “The Goldfinch” is one of my favorite books, and Donna Tartt is one of my favorite writers.
    I’m a writer with a novel “Beneath the Wild Blue.” It’s the story of a Southern girl who becomes an Air Force wife in the 1950s, when being a “military wife” was a true call of duty. Lots of style references as the novel progresses through the Sixties and on through modern day. I’d love it if your book club would consider reading it. I’ve spoken to several book clubs and military spouse groups about the book.
    You and your family are in my prayers, Beth

    You look great (as always). I love the slingbacks. I hope mr style enjoyed his froyo. Love and prayer to all of you.

    Love the long vest. I’m a big fan of vests any time of year. This one is very versatile. You look great, Beth. I have thought of you and your gang all day since I read your posts about Mr Style. I am aching for you, and admire you all for “keep on keeping on.” Bringing Mr Style frozen yogurt sounds like a wonderful treat. I’ve been decluttering around our place lately, taking things to Goodwill, and on hot days, I’ve been known to stop off at Goodberry’s for a frozen custard myself here and there. Calcium, right?

    The Goldfinch is a keeper!

    You look adorable! I would never have thought to wear a black vest now, but it’s so cute!
