singin’ the blues in a faux leather jacket

  1. Cindi wheeler says:

    Get rid of those jeans!!!! They look like you got them out of the garbage! Not your style.
    Use dark navy

  2. Leslie says:

    This was an interesting topic about mixing pieces at different price points.
    I struggle trying to keep within a budget, buy ethically produced and more nationally made. I am really trying not to buy fast fashion oh boy there are just so many things to consider before I even hit style and fit

  3. Nancy Hollen says:

    Love the jacket but I’m sorry to say the jeans look like you painted your house in them.
    I think that style is better left to teenagers.

  4. Nancy Hollen says:

    So you do not want criticisms? I only mentioned that your jeans look like you painted in them and I feel they are meant for youngsters.

  5. Eve says:

    You look beautiful in blue. The difference is for me, the not exact fit. I don’t know if you usually have your clothes tailored to fit even when expensive but the jacket and the blouse seem a little bit boxy. Perhaps it’s just the style though. Did you keep these in your wardrobe?

  6. Samantha says:

    Recently bought a gorgeous leather jacket in a deep burgundy colour from Baukjen, now all I need is a chance to go somewhere wearing it!

  7. Valerie G says:

    Love the jacket and I just ordered it. I recently ordered a blue snake print top I’m hoping it goes with. Keep wearing what you enjoy I’m never disappointed with your posts.

  8. Linda Aulgur says:

    Beth, you always show us new and fresh styles, love this one! And I’m someone who shops at both Walmart mart and Nordstrom’ I appreciate all your tips. Sorry that some readers left critical comments about the jeans…yes, we all have our own style. I’m afraid that my mom would turn over in her grave if I wore ripped jeans, they just aren’t for me. But if you pair them with such other great fashion advice, I think that’s ok! I appreciate you!

  9. Louise says:

    Can I ask what size your jacket is? I just want to know if it’s true to size.

  10. Maria j Johns says:

    I feel the same way about colors and the seasons…………I can not where burgandy in the summer…….it is a fall color…….same with brown. Thought I was the only one!!!
    Sorry for all the harsh remarks………not necessary

  11. CIndy Smith says:

    Some folks should take a chill pill. No reason to get their panties in a bunch lol !!! I like the ootd. Love the motto jacket. It’s not like Beth is going to go to a black tie event in the outfit today. It’s a fresh & relaxed casual outfit.

  12. Lisa says:

    You are gorgeous no matter what you wear 😇

  13. Julia says:

    I love the color of this jacket and that blue looks good on you. Seems like a great bargain. Personally, I choose not to shop at Walmart for political reasons. But you do you! I appreciate that you are making an effort to show a variety of price points, as your readers requested.

  14. Linda De says:

    You look so good! I love that blue on blue with the bottom layer with the big print. Thanks!

  15. Lynne A Johnson says:

    Fun styles! Love you in the beautiful blue! Now those pants say fun! Not for me, but you look cute.
    I bought a pink faux leather jacket last year and enjoyed it with a lot of outfits. It was inexpensive, but was made well. So checking out some less expensive trendy things makes sense.

  16. Janet says:

    Well, at least you will have some new jeans to wear while working outside doing Spring clean-up chores-LOL!!

  17. Sarah says:

    Wondering if the shoes are Belgian loafers?

  18. Dee says:

    I love to mix high and low price points. The blue jacket is such a great price and it looks fab on you! As for the jeans, they are a win win in my book. Leave it to a great designer to put some ‘fun’ in our life and give us something cute to smile at. One of my favorite outfits Beth. Thanks for sharing! Remember your manners ladies and if you don’t have anything nice to say…. swipe left!

    Blue on blue! (You may not be old enough to get the reference to B.V.). I just love this outfit, head to toe. I don’t think the ladies who don’t like the jeans are being mean at all. It IS a different look. I’m 67, but I do like them. I find them charming – rustic and ”Americana”. But the ripped and torn jeans with gaping holes – I find those truly offensive. Anyway, back to the outfit. I’ll be copying it and checking out that darling jacket.

  20. Lyn says:

    Wow – I just love that blue jacket. Last spring I bought my first moto jacket ever – black. I haven’t had it out of the closet because of the pandemic, but plan on getting it out soon. We are still in the 15-25 degree range. After buying the black jacket I was walking through a store and saw a moto in a soft blush pink – it was adorable. I think the lighter colors make for a softer look especially for us ladies of a certain age.

  21. Julie Berger says:

    Hi Beth, I love blue too! I appreciate that you showed us some less expensive options, since I am recently retired and look for ways to save more 🙂

  22. Marilyn Groneng says:

    Love the jeans! All sold our unfortunately. They could look like you just painted the house if you had paired with a sloppy sweatshirt but certainly not the way you styled them. You are so correct…isn’t it great we all can have our personal style. And as a grandmother, I want to look like a hip one!

  23. I ordered the blue moto jacket from Walmart and its as you say wonderful. I would have loved to have seen a photo of you wearing it from the BACK – you might want to consider adding a photo once in awhile of the back ‘angle’ as the back of this jacket is beautiful! Thanks for the tip a I would NEVER have ordered it without your recommendation and I’m glad I did!

    I finally gave in and ordered this blue faux leather blue jacket. I know I really don’t “need” another jacket but I adore this blue so much. It is scheduled to arrive by FEDEX tomorrow (Wednesday). I’ve been adding more color into my wardrobe since going to my natural hair color which is very similiar to yours. I still love my black and white, though for anytime of the year.

  25. Michelle Hamric says:

    Betth, I LOVE your whole outfit! Several years ago I decided that I just couldn’t wear torn jeans because I was in my 60’s. Well, I’m now 66 and guess what. I’m wearing torn jeans! Life’s too short to be so restrictive. I get compliments on how great and adorable I look. Live a little ladies!!
