    I live just outside of Boston. I highly recomment afternoon tea at the Boston Public Library, browsing all the antique shops and boutiques on Charles Street, taking pictures of all of the beautiful doors and window boxes in Beacon Hill and finishing with a meal at Toscano, also on Charles Street. Have a great time!

    • beth djalali says:

      that sounds like a lovely afternoon, patricia! thanks so much for sharing your tips with me. tea and antiquing go hand-in-hand. and now mr. style has a tip on where to photograph a lovely boston scene. can’t wait to visit.

    Great outfit, and congrats on your speaking engagement! I love the faux leather pants/leggings you’re wearing in these photos — they’re flattering and not too clingy. They look more like slim-cut pants than leggings, and look much nicer, in my view. I’ve tried several faux leather leggings, but they are always way too tight — emphasizing every bump and bulge — and I’m not heavy. Wish I could find a pair like the one in your photos here.

    • beth djalali says:

      thanks, cindy! as the brits like to say ‘i’m chuffed to bits.’ as for faux leather leggings you just have to try a gazillion (like jeans) to see which are the best fit. these truly are leggings from ann taylor last season. and they are definitely snug but the fabric doesn’t shoe any lump or bumps. i also wear zara and like those equally. i know there is a faux leather legging for you. good luck!

    I live in Boston and I would recommend Miel @ the InterContinental Hotel for brunch! Hope the weather and the Red Sox prove worthy of your visit to my beautiful city!

    Hi Beth, Love the sweater. Who made it?

    This is an outfit that could go just about anywhere. It should definitely be in your suitcase for Boston. Enjoy your trip to Boston…sounds you have plenty to do. xoxo

    Hi, Beth. Great outfit! LOVE that fringe sweater, but I see that sweater is not linked for purchase. This may sound grouchy…but oftentimes, you’ll wear something that is no longer available and substitute another option. Sometimes that works just fine–like with simple, faux leather leggings. But, when you wear a fringed sweater and say it’s still “on trend,” I happily expect to see a fringed sweater linked. When a plain sweater is linked instead, I’m always disappointed whenever I find a substitute that’s barely similar. Just like the shoes you’re wearing…the only substitute is a pair of $500 Ferragamo’s? Again, I love your blog, but this is one frustrating experience with it that I wanted to share. Sorry!

    • beth djalali says:

      Completely understand your viewpoint! The shoes are Ferragamo’s from a few seasons ago which is why they are linked to Ferragamo’s. As for the sweater, this was featured and linked last year when the sweater was available. Sadly, this year it is not available but the tringe is still on trend so I thought I would trot it out. The best and worst aspect of the blog is that I wear repeat items. But the outfits are for inspiration for you to tweak to your own taste and price point.

      • DriftwoodLover says:

        I understand the other comment but also love that you repeat items. It reinforces to me that we can build a wardrobe that works for years and how to use the pieces in different ways.

      • crillonparis says:

        I appreciate your reply, Beth. For me, one of the best features of your blog (because our styles align so well) is the “link to buy” feature. I’ve purchased quite a lot that way–saves me time from having to hunt down an item myself. Honestly, no way will I now try to find a fringed sweater and I already have 2 pairs of the classic Ferragamo bow pump, so I won’t be adding another pair. But, your point about inspiration is well taken…I just like at the beginning of the season to see what’s out there, so I can buy it and check that box! xo

        • DriftwoodLover says:

          I try to look at it this way … when Beth gives me inspiration at least I can google various descriptions of the item to try to find something similar (without having to hit the stores on foot!). And I lusted after a scarf a few months ago and have been trying to locate it “used” on ebay or one of the other clothing resale sites. Maybe you could find someone who’s refreshing their wardrobe that way and find the exact sweater. Just a thought.

          • crillonparis says:

            DriftwoodLover, I wish I had the time to hunt down an item, but I don’t…I’m a FT consultant and that’s why I follow Beth & other bloggers who are finding great items for work/play and linking them for purchase. Saves me time. Isn’t the “purchase” part one of the big reasons bloggers link the items, oftentimes from sponsored retailers? I’m assuming the sponsored retailers want people to buy? Inspiration is great, and I appreciate that aspect of the blog–Beth does an amazing job– but the link so I can purchase an item is even better IMO. Just a thought.

        • beth djalali says:

          hopefully, i squeeze in new with the old. but i so appreciate your feedback.

    Love the sweater too (and the rest of the outfit) … great way to have fringe without looking inappropriate at our ages! Sorry I couldn’t see the lace detail but trust you. I admire greatly your ability to find unique items. Share your strategy, tips on that please? And for the commenters who made suggestions on what to do in Boston, I’m stealing them. Will visit someday myself. What’s your topic for your speech at BU?

    • beth djalali says:

      Happy to hear you loved the Boston tips as much as I. What a fantastic city to visit and a great time of year. Can’t beat fall in New England! I will be speaking about social media influence and authenticity.

    I also wanted to add…my son went to school in Boston and I visited often–love the city. My favorite place to stay bar none is the Elliott Hotel. Located in the Back Bay, It’s a boutique hotel with historical significance, within a few blocks of great shopping on Newbury and a lovely restaurant for brunch & dinner! Enjoy your stay–perfect time of year to visit!

  9. Amy Johnson says:

    You look amazing in those leather leggings! I love your cardigan too! I’m happy to hear fringe is still “In”.

  10. Rebecca Saffer says:

    Congratulations on your upcoming speaking engagement! Please keep us in the loop of all your wonderful upcoming adventures. I loved Boston when I visited it a few years ago but it’s funny when I arrived, I was surprised by how small the city is compared to NYC where I live. There is so much history and great shops, museums, restaurants – you will have a ball!!

    • beth djalali says:

      that’s what i have heard! but it sounds like a very walkable city and that’s what i love (and miss) the most about city life. and i love history so i know it will be a lovely and photogenic stay!

    Looks lovely–I like the feminine and the edgy leather together. My son lives in Boston–I love Boston! So much to see and do. He lives in the Seaport area–literally right on the water–and you can actually take a waterboat from the airport to Seaport–takes just a few minutes. It’s a really nice part of Boston–but you could also stay near the border of Boston/Cambridge and walk over and see rowers on the Charles river. And see Hahvud. Lots of fun things to do and you can walk along the waterfront and the Rose Kennedy garden area all throughout to Faneuil Hall, etc–it’s really nice. Tons of great eateries and places to visit and shop. Boston is very walkable, and you can hop on the T if you need/want, too. Boston Commons, the gardens, etc. Have a great trip. Hard not to have fun in Bean You can easily see lots in a few days.
    town.

    Oh, and highly recommend the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum–it’s a beautiful oasis in the middle of Boston. Gorgeous! Might make a fabulous backdrop for Style at a certain age photos! https://www.gardnermuseum.org/

    • crillonparis says:

      Oh, yes!! The Isabella Gardner Museum is magical and enchanting. Spent a rainy day there on a Parent’s Weekend years ago. Just thinking about it makes me smile. Must-see for sure!
