stripes, blue jeans and moto jacket

    Love the look! A little spring with a little sass.
    I just bought a Moto jacket you had linked in an earlier post and have a question about sleeves on this style.
    The sleeves seem very long on my purchase, but I see that yours also look as if they’re below your wrist. Is that part of the moto jacket style?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      yes, the sleeves can be longer on jackets. that way even if you’re wearing a bulky sweater the sleeves will hit just right. but the opposite happens with a slim-fit tee. so pick your battles or size down.

  2. Love your out fit today. It is so classic with a feminine look to it with the pearls

    It is definitely difficult to find someone to do work at your home – when you do find a good landscaper, tree company, etc., keep them!! We just started hiring people to do some of the heavy lifting last year, and we hit the jackpot – in fact both have called us to get us on their spring schedule. Re the moto jacket – you look great. I bought my first ever moto last spring and since not being able to leave our homes, it sat in the closet. Until this morning that is!! I wore it to the grocery store, and I loved it! I decided to soften the look by adding a silk scarf.

    I love this look you’ve put together for spring, Beth. I have all the pieces except a bright striped t-shirt. I usually wear navy and white or black and white, but you’ve given me the idea to try hot pink or red stripes. Thanks for the inspo!!

  5. Susan says:

    You look absolutely wonderful in that outfit. It makes you look younger and shows off your fantastic trim figure.
    Like you, I’m fed up with 30 somethings telling us older ladies we shouldn’t wear leather or denim.

    Go girl you look great.

  6. Susan says:

    What brand sunglasses are you wearing?Thanks.

  7. Josephine Riddle says:

    Call me “Frency!” Went straight to my closet, after reading your post, and replicated your look. I would not have thought to add my pearls, but they make the outfit. Now if I had somewhere to go!! Thank you, Beth, for always inspiring me, and for giving me the courage to tuck my shirt and wear a belt.

    Darling outfit! And pearls with a striped, graphic tee – delightful. This is such a simple yet charming outfit and has infinite variations. Great inspiration, especially for this transitional season. P.S. The WM Scoop smocked blouse you featured a few posts ago arrived and I adore it in both patterns. I have you to thank for these lovely additions to my wardrobe in addition to the dreamy blue moto jacket.

    Great spring looks.

    Love this on you. You look beautiful!

    You are my style guru. Seeing how great your gray hair looks inspired me to quit coloring and embrace the gray which turned out to be a beautiful, shiny white gray which has grown past my shoulders during this pandemic year. Planning to treat myself to a new and updated hairstyle once I get vaccinated. I love your clothing choices–stylish, elegant, comfortable, and age appropriate. We need all the role models we can get when we reach this age. I have adopted your exercise and eating routine as well and am down 12 pounds since last March so I am looking forward to purchasing some nice jeans, pants, and tops once I hit my goal weight of 130 pounds. I have 19 pounds to go. Thank you for sharing your style, makeup tips, and exercise tips. In a world where we are inundated with pictures of very young women, it is wonderful to see the style of older women. We don’t need to be “mumsie” just stylish and on trend.

    I realize the reason I enjoy your blog so much is that we have the exact same taste! I am happiest in striped tee, jeans, and moto jacket, too. My wardrobe is similar to yours and I enjoy seeing our alignments in putting together outfits. Continued sunshine in all you do!

    You’re incredibly beautiful and very stylish. I know your site is aimed at ladies but I hope you don’t mind having a male fan.

    And I sent you a query by email. I may have worded it badly and it may look like spam but I promise it’s a serious question,
