this time of year it’s all about transitioning from summer to fall. and what better way to do that than with a year-round go-to, white denim. this pair of boyfriend jeans from Talbots will serve me well not only today but all through fall and into winter. plus, they are so darn comfy with its loose fit. for whatever reason, i tend to cuff my boyfriend jeans a tad higher – it just works. especially with a casual chic outfit. a simple white tee keeps the look fresh and summery.

another fabulous transition piece is a lightweight jacket. this one from Madewell has a boxy shape, but if you like a slimmer fit, there’s a drawstring on the inside to tweak the silhouette.
khaki and white are a perfect pairing, and an ode to summer yet has one foot firmly planted in fall. notice how the khaki jacket subtly transforms an all white outfit. this ootd is fantastic for a day of running errands or an evening at the ballpark. one hotdog, please, hold the relish.
the color scheme is reinforced with a pair of summer slides that show off a nice pedi. hey, we’re still in the dog days of august gang. we still need to be kind to our feet. as for bling? how about a gold cuff? let’s toss on a long necklace for good measure. it adds dimension. and handbag? try a leather bucket bag with a long strap.
what do you say, ladies? are you ready for wednesday? it’s here, ready or not. today is a special day in our house as our youngest turns twenty-six. yikes! how did that happen? wasn’t i just twenty-six? yes, the days speed by with or without our consent. so let’s make today an exceptionally good one. happy hump day.

Love your style thx for your posts
Beth thanks so much for your post. I have been following you for about a year. I’ve learned so much about putting outfits together. Loved your five tips on utube. My closet use to intimidate me, now I look for all the wonderful possibilities. I appreciate your time and willingness to share.
beth, I am sure I am the last person on the Internet to ask, ‘what does ootd mean’? 😉

This is genius, Beth! I have the same white jeans, but never thought about pairing with a safari jacket in a neutral shade. I will go digging for my jacket — thanks for the tip, as always. You look fabulous.
Casual but polished look for this time of year. You always put the perfect finishing touches on your casual outfits with great accessories. (I also love Madewell and will check out this jacket!) Enjoy your son’s birthday.
Happy Birthday to your son! The time does fly, whether we want it to or not. I love this outfit…the slides are perfect with it. Wish I had saved some of my slides…used to wear them a lot. xoxo
Neutrals just sort of balance the universe on those days when I just don’t want to figure out what colors I’m in the mood for! Looks great. Those slides are perfect with this.
Happiest of birthdays to your son!
