  1. Kathy Slamar says:

    Love the oufit and your new hair style! I, too, remember the 70s and I love the wide let pant. It especially works when you are tall. Now if I could only get my stomach as flat as it was in the 70s!!!

  2. Joanie says:

    Thank you for your wonderful and enjoyable “style”. My favorite morning go to. Makes me want yo feel and look better. Still trying to stay positive these days. Keep up the fantastic work!!!!!

    Love the outfit and your hair! Looking fabulous as always. Thanks for putting the sunshine in my day.
    Be well

    Beth thank you for being so positive and I enjoy the escape of reading your posts every day. After a month of WFH and non-stop WebEx calls I’ve been feeling pretty tired. You inspired me to start putting on my “real” clothes and accessories each day and that has given me a big boost. My grandmother used to say she had to “put on her face” before leaving the house and I found that even a little mascara, blush and bright lipstick makes me feel so much better.

    I have been an Ann Taylor customer for over 25 years.
    I love their classic, elegant look!!!! Thank you for
    Providing these new looks because staying home and looking
    Good are a must always, especially during these times!

    Hello Beth
    Love the pants, they look so comfy and not a jogging style! I like your hair both short and the current length. As usual you are a very good role model, especially as going to get a cut and colour are not on anyone’s schedule at the moment. You show us how to adapt to whatever comes along. You all do a great job, thank you.

    I recently told a friend, “geez I miss the 70’s”. Love your outfit and blog. I’ll have to check out the movie recommendation. I attended my 40th HS reunion this past September. How the heck did that happen so quickly?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      40 years go by in the blink of an eye! and there’s nothing quite like the 70’s. what a special era that we all took for granted. and why not? that was just the way things were. take care. xo

    You think you had it rough as a size 6 or so, try being a size 16! Yes, getting back to the states was great and I always came with an empty suitcase to fill with clothes that I could not get elsewhere.
    A great time in the life of my youth but also a difficult time for us living out of the states.

  12. Suzanne M Smith says:

    I graduated from undergrad college in 1976. I can totally relate to this look. I love navy, too–next to black, it’s one of my favorite classics. These pants are so reminiscent of things we wore back then, but they’re new all over again. Love them!

  13. Lori L Feld says:

    Love those pants! I wish Ann Taylor would branch into plus sizes. As a 1976 grad, I will definitely check out Dazed and confused.

  14. Mary says:

    Thanks so much for keeping your blog ‘normal’ without the drama of what our world is facing. It’s so nice to see fashion and tips that I’ll be able to utilize in the near future

    • Beth Djalali says:

      thanks so much for stopping by, mary! fashion and style have survived centuries of turmoil and I’m confident they’ll weather this storm too. take care. xo

    I’ve spent the last four days in my closet trying on, purging and re-organizing my closet. I’m thrilled with how easy it is to find stuff to put together in fun new ways. I’ve also concluded I have enough clothes to last me the next few years. I found clothes I’d forgotten. I found clothes that should have gone years ago. Quarantine has been helpful to me … lost weight and purged stuff from all over the house.

    Beth, you are such a stunning classy lady!
    I turn 55 this June. I am trying to embrace my age. I have just a touch of grey on the sides basically not noticeable and I keep it short. I have always had thin hair. It’s baby fine. Not being able to get to a hair dresser is difficult due to the virus that has stopped life as we know it.
    I love your columns you write. Look forward to them. Thanks for sharing!
