the versatile white blouse

  1. Lyn says:

    Love a crisp white shirt. I recently reorganized my closet – it used to be arranged short sleeve to long sleeve tees and shirts. Now it’s staged by color – white, then black, then navy, etc. I must have about 15 white shirts – ranging from cotton, blends, linen, eyelet and lace. I do arrange them sleeveless, to short sleeve tees, then long sleeve tees, then the shirts. My retirement wardrobe is very versatile, and it’s more or less a capsule wardrobe, albiet not necessarily a low number of items, but everything works.

      I think you hit the nail right on the head…you need to have different white shirts. This way you have a variety of looks, but still keep that classic style. I used to think one button up would do, but now, like you, have several white tops which allows me options to choose from.

    Would love to know how you decide whether to wear gold or silver jewelry with your outfits. I wouldv’e chosen silver with your OOTD.

    That look is for me! You look great. I really like the 13″ shorts. Just what I need. Your yard looks awesome. Thank you.

    Love white and black! My co-workers used to joke that was my uniform! Thanks for sharing and just love your blog and new hairstyle! Oscar is a doll too!

    Hi Beth, love the white shirt, you can never go wrong having them in your wardrobe. If in doubt a white shirt.
    Your garden is looking lovely, its really coming along and your new Pixie hairdo suits you, xoxo Julie from England 🇬🇧

    Have always loved a white button down, and now love the tunic length like the one you are wearing. I usually have five whites in rotation at any given time, regof season. I find them cool in the summer and warm in the winter – cotton became my bestie after menopause 😉

    Love your yard, Beth. I live outside as soon as possible and we eat all out meals outside. Those of us who have yards to escape to right now, are truly fortunate. Enjoy🌷

    It turned out great! I know you are very pleased with having a place to enjoy the outdoors.
    I forget that a white blouse can be more than button up so I’m looking to buy something that will get more wear, it must be soft and not see through. Some of the new fabrics are nice. I hate ironing.

  10. Hi Beth, very pretty white shirt, I own a few but not longer in the back, I do not know if is a good idea for s 5′ 2″ women like me. I will be looking for one

    Beth-is that hay in one of your garden beds?

    Comfy and classy look for all women. I buy white blouses and shirts whenever I find one I like. Sleeveless and cap sleeve for under cardigans, jackets, and kimonos, short sleeve, long sleeve and my favorite, 3/4 sleeve. There’s rarely an outfit that doesn’t work with a white blouse. I love sheer, flowy ones too – I just pop a lightweight, skin-tone cami or tank underneath. Bermuda’s are my favorite shorts.

    Your my hair inspiration. I’m fourteen months without coloring my hair. I still have another nine to twelve months to reach my gray goal. It has been so liberating not to color every three weeks!

    Love a crisp white shirt with black shorts. As always, you look great!

    Did I miss a post where you talked about hurting your index finger? I looks swollen. Is it okay?

    Thanks for the outfit inspiration!
