    That dress is gorgeous. And the horse is too!

  3. Laura Banks Lewis says:

    That dress is gorgeous. Reminds me of the brown dotted one Julia Roberts wore at the polo match in Pretty Woman. Always a favorite look of mine. The horse is spectacular.

    Reminds me of the “Pretty Woman” does she wore to go to the polo match. I loved that dress and got one just like it. Very nice look Beth as always…

        Sadly that is the truth.. ?2 years ago I found a polka dot tote bag that I love and use constantly!

    Perfect for the Derby! Your setting is just gorgeous. I’ll need to make some southern dishes to enjoy this weekend. Pimento cheese, anyone? We are celebrating Cinco de Mayo today with fajitas and margaritas. xoxo

  9. Oh I love this shoot and I love your look!

    I went to the Kentucky Derby only once. It was 1973 and Secretariat was in the final race of the day and won the first of his Triple Crown. What a race!! Your outfit is the epitome of all that Kentucky Derby style should be for a proper lady. Derby Week is always a series of major events leading up to the race. Fashion plays a big part, along with the race, parties, and food. You pulled it off perfectly!!

    • beth djalali says:

      well, if you went to that race any derby after that would have paled in comparison. secretariat! you are one lucky girl. and he was one amazing horse. i’m certain you watched the movie? i loved the story and all the tribulations they faced and overcame.

    my favorite look on you to date!!!! so chic!!!!! xoxo

  12. D. A. Wolf says:

    Lovely! And the polkadots and hat and horse remind me of a wonderful scene from Pretty Woman. (How cool is that?) And, as usual, you are stunning.

  13. Maggie Silton says:

    Fantastic look (and date!). I have a comment on your snapchat today. Your new haircut is stunning. I’m having a hard time understanding why you want to grow it because it looks perfect now. However, I’m always wanting my hair to be shorter or longer as it is, so I can relate in a way. I don’t know if you read the blog High Heels in the Wilderness, but there is a recent post on the very same subject. You’ll be gorgeous whatever you decide, but I just wanted you to know I think the latest ‘do is amazing!

    • beth djalali says:

      hi maggie,
      i love my hair short, too, but sometimes you just have to mix it up. keeps things fresh. i won’t go too long. a shortish bob is what i’m after. we’ll see…
      xoxo beth

    Love this look. So sophisticated.

  15. Nikki G says:

    I love a Julia Roberts polka dot dress! I always pretend I look like her. But I outgrew mine, so I can see now that its time for me to find a new one.
    Btw, Oscar isn’t the jealous type is he?
