set for summer

  1. I confess I wear white ankle jeans 75% of the time because I’m lazy! They make me look pulled together no matter what! In FL I can wear them year round and make all the “even older than moi” gals happy that I’m not breaking the their Memorial to Labor Day rule (so silly since I see super models where white jeans all year!) I can see I’ve got to be more adventurous with my shoes tho. Keep inspiring us slow learners!-Laurel

      that’s the good thing about florida – it’s summer fashion practically year round. and yes to white denim 356 days a year. who ever thought up those silly fashion rules anyway?!

    You have posted another outfit that is my favorite…ha! Seems they are all my favorites. Love the shirt…do you have trouble finding a button up shirt that fits properly? If I buy one that actually buttons and doesn’t gap, the shoulders are too big…sigh… Amen to the poor quality of films…we watch a lot of BBC shows at home. Eat our own popcorn, put our feet up and stop the film if a bathroom break is necessary. xoxo

      hey donna! i do sometimes have a problem with a gape between buttons. i will a) pin it from the inside or b) leave it unbuttoned if it doesn’t reveal too much information.

    Great casual look. Love the ease of this outfit. Look for the movie THE HERO starring Sam Elliot. It gets great reviews and he is so easy to look at and listen to.

    That looks comfy. I love cotton, and anything that doesn’t stick to me in the heat is good with me. I remember that striped tuxedo shirt– love it. I tried to get those Talbot pants in the white and they don’t have my size. May have to call and see if they get any returned. I love those black pants and would love a white pair–they’re nice.

    I don’t feel the same urgency in going to movies these days that I did when I was young and on the outskirts of Manhattan. Back then, I pretty much went to every single movie that came out, the minute it was released, but now, I figure–ah, I’ll catch it on the rerun, stream it, and sit comfy at home. Every once in a while, a movie demands the big screen, but most of the time, our home TV is pretty large and we have the soundbar, and it’s pretty much like being at the movies anyway! I think summer movie offerings are historically pretty abysmal!

      cotton and linen are soooo comfy to wear come summer. and i’m like you, it’s nice not to have something sticking to your body when it’s hot and humid.
      good luck on your pant search. sometimes the stores can work magic for us!

    Love the crop flares!

  6. I love this white look a lot! It is so fresh and neat, simple, classic and soooooooo elegant at the same time. I was always afraid of white pants but maybe I will purchase one soon. As usual, you inspired me Beth. Have a great weekend! Renata

      hi renata! it’s always a good day when i hear from you. and i hope you purchase a pair of white pants as they are just as versatile as their sister the black.
      i hope you are enjoying your summer.
