    Hi Beth, I’ve been following your blog for a bit now, and I look for your post everyday!! If I could make one suggestion: It’s about giving us “similar items” – Can you please show something that looks a bit more like what you are wearing? The example in todays blog with the blazer is so totally different. You have on a long version and all you show is a shorter version on Ann Taylor web site, or a linen one on Talbots. I love when you pull something old from your closet – because lets face it, we all don’t either get clothes for free or can afford what you can and we need to “rinse and repeat” But this “similar” item is not really similar to me.

      hi chris! thanks for the input. many times when searching for a similar item if possible i look for the same brand as what i’m wearing. we all know it’s nearly next to impossible to duplicate an item but here’s what i look for when making a decision: similar color, brand, and texture. block heel – block heel, ivory blazer – ivory blazer. to be truthful, i liked the similar item better than the original. i loved the cropped cut. hopt this helps!

        Chris–if you’re looking for a longer blazer similiar to what Beth is wearing, I’d suggest trying the Banana Republic Long and Lean Blazer…they have an optic white this year

    Spring is slow to arrive in New England but I’ll be ready. Thank you Beth for another great inspiration outfit! I love both stylings and just ordered the sandals!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      let me know how you like the sandals! block heels are so comfy to wear. and who knows? by the time the shoes arrive the weather has changed! xo

    After wearing tailored clothes all my working life when I retired I really had trouble in putting together casual but smart stuff. I found your blog and have been following you for some time. Thank you for helping me find my self esteem again and feeling good. Thank you Thank you Thank you

    • Beth Djalali says:

      nothing makes me happier than to read a comment like this! you are so very welcome ludmilla. one thing i’ve learned is that style has no expiration date. and it’s been proven time and again that when we look good we feel good! go get ’em! xo

    Very nice look today. Simple and stylish!

  6. Becky R says:

    It is so nice to see you in jeans that are not ripped and torn. The ones in todays blog look great on you. I enjoy your blog so much and glean many ideas…thank you for that. I am certainly not a style fuddy-duddy but I don’t think ripped and torn or glitzed up jeans look very good or flattering on anyone over about age 40. Thank you for all of your inspiring ideas!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      everyone has an opinion about distressed jeans that’s for certain. if they aren’t your cup of tea just remember these on trend jeans might be someone else’s. variety is the spice of life. no matter what age. xo

    Hi Beth,

    I agree with Chris in that I was really attracted to the longer length of your ivory blazer and very disappointed in the cropped ‘similar”. Being tallish and long waisted – a crop will never do for me. I think I like you more in the longer lengths too – it is likely just my eye though and you still look sharp in the shorter styles.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      don’t forget, robyn, that i link quite a few options on the widget. there was a longer length blazer from j.crew featured there. hope this helps. xo

    I have had much luck finding items on ebay

    Hi, just came across your blog and I’ve very similar tastes, jeans and blazer combo is my go to now, I also wear mine with a classic white adidas trainer. For the ladies who struggle to find longer blazers, here in the UK we have a high street and online shop called NEXT, they have lots of great value classic tailoring and maybe worth a look.
