    Loved this post. Change is hard but once you step out of your comfort zone and experience something different, it feels so rewarding. I’ve experienced many changes in my life and have grown stronger because of them. Love this look. You look beautiful. Bobbi Jo

    Could you give the length of the faux leather shirt?

  3. Janis says:

    Great outfit Beth. I can recreate a similar look from my closet. Wonderful fall inspiration!

  4. Mary Jo says:

    You are rockin’ that outfit! My cooking club’s theme for tonite’s meeting is “Breakfast for Dinner”! Wish you lived closer.

    Would love to see capitals in your blog post! Just as it’s difficult to read all caps; it’s difficult to read a continuous string of lowercase. I enjoy your content otherwise.

    Hi Beth! I feel like I’ve only recently come into my personal style (minimal classic) which I am loving so I’m not too hard pressed to venture into new territory at this point. I agree with you that getting into a comfort zone (or rut depending on your view) can become a real part of life. I like to surround myself with young people which energizes me and keeps me on my toes! Happy Hump Day to You!

    I remember newspaper articles when girls were first allowed to wear pants to school, and women could wear pants to restaurants (but only pantsuits). I can’t imagine not wearing pantsin public places now.

    Wow you have lost weight!

  9. Elizabeth McDaniel says:

    I am SO in love with this ensemble AND your sassy attitude!

    Hi Beth, I love leopard print but didn’t know how to wear it, today I have bought an autumn colour gilet reversible with leopard print and leopard pumps! I feel so daring, what fun! I really enjoy your posts.

    Chic look! You’re preaching to the choir here! Change is good. I always tell myself I might be missing out on something that could wind up being my favorite thing I never knew about if I don’t try new things. I took sailing lessons a few years ago because I realized I always wanted to learn. And a number of years ago, on a whim, I bought a few paintbrushes and some tubes of watercolor paints and paper, and now watercolor painting is a huge passion of mine. I love it, and I’d never have had this if I hadn’t suddenly decided to try it. I’m a firm believer that life is short–go for new things and experiences.

    Massive hug for you, Beth. You seem busier than ever and looking even more fabulous than you normally do.
    But I hope you are also having some ‘Beth-quiet-time’ here and there so you don’t wear yourself out.
    Hello also to that magnificent boy, Oscar. What a style king he is too! Such a handsome pooch.

  13. Lisa Hill says:

    Love your style! You are looking absolutely adorable. This leather shirt and leopard print jeans is perfect combo. I can’t wait to try this style. Thanks a lot for sharing.

  14. Betty (SC) says:

    Oh my goodness! I love that leather over-sized shirt! Looks fantastic with the leopard jeans! Beth, your look here has inspired my imagination! I have leopard print pants just sitting in the closet…waiting to be paired now with a silky-looking long topper/jacket that will look smashing with a plain white blouse underneath! Can’t wait now to wear it! Love your accessories today too! – I’m beginning to explore changes now that my age is advancing so rapidly! lol! Now’s the time!

  15. Alex says:

    You look beautiful!

  16. Linda Anderson says:

    Well I just ordered the leather jacket shirt on line. I love the look and hope that it will fit. Thanks Beth!

    I’m one the gals that takes her classic clothes and every season add trends to get an edgy look. I don’t want to look forever 21 but classy sassy brassy.

    My younger colleagues & my daughter’s young 20s friends regularly ask for fashion advice. I started in the fashion industry ended up in public sector.
    I’ve always set goals for myself. If I’m not learning or mentoring colleges then it’s time to move on. You inspire me & it’s great feeling that we all support each other regardless of age.

    What I’ll love to learn is how to fence & see Greece.

    Looking forward to tomorrow’s style & Oscar update.
