classic style series | preppy style

  1. Love the combination.
    You know, how to put bright colors so well together.
    I love it, and even though is preppy it does not look ridiculous.
    Thumb up on these one for sure!!

    This is a very nice look on you. Another win!

  3. Kathleen McDermott says:

    Simply adorable.

  4. Love this outfit. The skirt and jacket together with the stripped top is so cute! Casual and so put together.

  5. Beth, you look fabulous! Life a burst of sunshine. I have been looking at that skirt on the Talbots website and it looks wonderful on you. Have a wonderful weekend.

    I love preppy since I‘ve been a little girl! Love your outfit…. Land’s End is another preppy retailer I shop at. Thanks for all you do, Beth. It has got to be exhausting at times…..

    Great post and love the combination of stripes and florals. Smiled when I read about Jackie Kennedy. Just finished a biography about her. She hated the iconic pillbox hat but wore it out of respect for her husband. She felt it was inappropriate to be seen at official events without her head covered.

    Funny story about your Easter lunch- at least the drinks bar was ready, lol. Thank goodness you found a shop open.
    I am in the U.K. and I also love preppy style, though didn’t realise that was what it was until I started reading your blog! I love loafers, chinos, stripes, bright colours, etc. That skirt looks such fun and you carry it off really well.

  9. Paula says:

    What great refreshing colors and the Easter story was funny!! Oh well you did it!
    When you talked about preppy I remember Ali Macgraw in Love Story. She also brought preppy into our lives. I also noticed that she just celebrated her 82 birthday and still looks great! I do love and have always loved the preppy look.

    You are a rockstar to accomplish all that you do, including pulling together a last minute frittata. Kudos to you and know your family appreciates the figurehead you are in their lives.
    I am for the foreseeable future, bound to sneakers due to a stress fracture to my femur. It is coming up to a year sense the incident. I tried to wear sandals for Easter with arch supports and that was a failure. I am looking forward to continuing my casual dress and happy to know how versatile sneakers can be with pants, shorts, skirts and summer dresses.

    What a great idea for a blog series!

    Locke that outfit, especially the skirt. It reminds me of toile patterns, that I have always loved. White denim jackets are the modern casual blazer. Excellent post.

  12. Gayle Woods says:

    I love this outfit! I was trying to comment and like it on face book but for some reason I can’t find any place to comment or any place to like!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      anothe reader was asking about trouble commenting or liking too. not sure what’s up with that. there’s always something with Facebook…

  13. Gayle Woods says:

    Hi, sorry to bother you again but for some reason it will not let me be a fan. I did make a negative comment on ONE post and then when I realized how it sounded I deleted it and I said I was sorry. Is that why I can’t become a fan or am I doing something wrong?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      hi gayle,
      i don’t even know how Facebook awards being a fan. but i always thought they (Facebook) controlled being a fan based on the interactions
      made on the page.
      sorry, not much help.

    You look fabulous, the preppy style is perfect for us older girls. Back in the day we called it collegiate, with brands like Villager& Lady Bug. Also loved the blue dress from last week. My sister beat me to the Talbots website to order!

  15. Sangita M says:

    I hope you had a cocktail (or two) after your harrowing Sunday morning! Nice to know I’m not the only one that has an “Oh no!” moment or ten!
    I’m sure it all turned out great, as did your outfit for today!
    Have a great week.

  16. Sheila says:

    I really like the outfits you put together for yourself. I especially enjoyed reading what you’ve written about the classic-preppy style. My question is this -is there an age where a woman would be too old to wear classic-preppy? I’m 72.
    Thank you ,

    Love the OOTD. And the more I see that purse, the more I think I need to get one! Chuckling just a bit on your delayed brunch food shopping trip. Women do toooo much. It’s our nature. And sometimes not enough time in the day to get it all done. Hope you have a more restful week. Maybe you need a personal assistant? (hand raised….lol)

  18. Georgia Peach says:

    Oh my gosh I love this cute skirt! I bought it last week to wear w/a white eyelet blouse and sandals. I couldn’t wait until the weather turned warmer so I styled it w/my denim jacket and Keds. So versatile .
    You look darling. Love your yellow sandals.
    Speaking of yellow, this pine pollen cannot end soon enough.

  19. Lori says:

    Beth can you please share what brand your Apple Watch is? We greatly appreciate all you do !

  20. Sue says:

    You look great in a skirt! Do you use a sunless tanner that you could recommend? My pasty looking legs need help.
