the three most controversial summer fashion items

  1. Sangita M says:

    I especially like the black and white ensemble and I agree that everyone has to find what works for them. Honestly ALL of them work for you!
    Have a great Sunday!

  2. Susan says:

    You have certainly had trials & tribulations for quite awhile now. You have been in my prayers and will continue to be. Its a comfort to have your family around you. And especially Oscar. And your hair looks great! Such blessings!

  3. Chris Illius says:

    I actually liked them all Beth! I don’t see any controversy – I don’t get it. I may not have paired the black purse with the black sleeveless blouse or worn the brown belt with the animal print, BUT all your outfits were tasteful and age appropriate for us older gals. My mom use to say, you can’t please everyone all the time. I for one, find your blog inspirational – A BIG THANK YOU FROM ROCKY RIVER, OH!
    Blessings to you and your family!

    Hi Beth,

    I smiled all the way through this post…I love and wear all of these things all summer long. In fact, I am wearing my jean shorts and a sleeveless top as I write this. Seems like your blog has set me on the right style path.

    Thank you, Julie

    Chic and unique. Some people are just rude. If something is not to one’s taste, then just don’t wear it, or modify it to suit one’s individuality. It’s inspiring to see all the different pairings available to choose from. Thanks for the inspiration🥂

  6. Cindy says:

    Do not find any of your outfits controversial nor inappropriate. I personally dislike distressed denim. Why spend hard earned funds on denim with holes?

  7. Eve says:

    Some of my favorites. I’ve copied a lot of these looks to my files to try. I love your graphic tee outfits. The navy with pink trim jacket and graphic tee is one of my favorite looks you have shown. Keep safe and cool.

  8. Jeanne says:

    The sleeveless black top and white jeans are my favorite! Lovely! It’s too hot here is S.C. to think of wearing a blazer or sweater anytime soon. 🌞

  9. Marylynne says:

    I like the way you pair new items with clothes from previous posts. I just received the yellow jacket from Ann Taylor. I love to wear yellow especially on rainy gloomy days. As I was hanging it in my closet i realized it went well with the peasant blouse you featured last summer. I think it was from anthropology. It also goes well with a skirt from Talbot s. Now all I have to do is find somewhere to wear it Thank you for all your wardrobe ideas

  10. Janie Menegay says:

    I like and wear all of the clothing items pictured – and I’m 71! We live at a lake & golf course and these clothes are staples for us – regardless of age 🤗

  11. Leslie says:

    I think all these outfits look great on you Beth. I personally don’t show my legs a lot as they are not my best feature but I love my girlfriend denim shorts and wear them a lot when the weather is hot.
    I love that your blog inspires me to think about my wardrobe. I am intentional about what I wear because it does affect my mood to some degree.
    Thank you for your thoughts and encouragement.

  13. Editha says:

    Simply elegant

  14. Gwen Marie Ewing says:

    I love all 3 summer fashion pieces! I have them all too!

  15. Andrea says:

    I have always enjoyed reading your blog. Unfortunately lately it is almost impossible to read because of all the pop ups. I accept the cookies then a pop up comes up to subscribe. I already subscribe so I X out. Then the accept cookies comes up again! After doing this a few times I give up and stop reading. I am not sure what has changed but it should be fixed. If not I will unsubscribe

  16. Jackie says:

    I love the white ankle jeans and black top on you. Question: Where did you get those darling rabbits on your porch?

  17. Pam says:

    Hi Beth,
    I loved all of these posts! I think it is always good to go back and question why you do what you do and whether it continues to be a good idea. I have made a number of changes with regard to my weight, fitness and surgically taking care of some foot issues that were holding me back. However, I was still practicing my “in the box” thinking from a fashion perspective. Your posts really got me thinking and got me “out of my box”. I am grateful and today it is shorts and sleeveless for me!

  18. Robyn says:

    Beth, I recently read an article called “Age Appropriate is so Over” and I couldn’t agree more. Women need to stop shaming each other and putting ourselves and others in a box. I say wear what you want and embrace your wrinkles, lumps and bumps as signs of character.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      couldn’t agree more about age-appropriate. i have a YouTube video coming out that talks about that very subject. thanks for stopping by.

  19. Pat Lawrence says:

    I love all your stylish outfits, and with your hair you can wear absolutely everything and look stunning. Except…..I am not a fan of showing too much leg after a certain age. I like the longer denim shorts a lot and just bought a pair like that only knee length. Keep sharing…..

  20. Lillian Carpenter says:

    I just turned 63 on July 14. I have kept off weight. I am not as slim as I would like, but am at my target weight as suggested by doctor. I like all these. I probably would not wear the shorter shorts just because… although they would be fine on me as my legs are one of my best features. The rest I see no problem with and see no reason for people to question. You look great and stylish. I’m not wearing “old” until I have too. My mother never had to do that and she died at 93.

  21. I am surprised that girlfriend denim shorts and sleeveless tops are controversial. I thought they looked good on you.

  22. Love this! Rock it!
