dot your “t”s and cross your “i”s | polka dotted preppy fun

  1. Debbie says:

    I love, love this look, really most of your looks! I have learned less is best. I pack minimal pieces that can make several outfits, and repeat looks.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      always love to recreate an outfit with existing pieces. an item that’s versatile is an item that belongs in our closet. more bang for your buck!

    Polka dots are magical! Like a perfect bright lip, they elevate me. I can feel the stress literally leave my body and I feel years younger and full of pep. My Grands love it when I wear them and their faces light up too….”Gramma loves her dots!” and we all giggle. I can see it in your eyes, Beth, that they have the same effect on you 🌷

    Hi Beth
    I love your style and have thoroughly enjoyed your blog for a couple of years now. But today I counted 11 ads (some of them repeats) in your blog. Certainly makes for lots of scrolling and definitely makes the blog not as enjoyable (for me at least). Still hanging in there, but just wanted to share my thoughts. Have a great week.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      hi cheryll,
      many bloggers are moving to a subscription based blog instead of ads. is this something of interest to you? our thought was to keep the content accessible to all and offset costs by running ads. but maybe a subscription is the way to go!

    • Georgia Peach says:

      I’m also really bummed with all the ads.
      What’s up?

    Hi Beth, loving the Polka dot sweater and your handbag xoxo

  6. Lisa K says:

    Love this elevated casual outfit! Love your preppy style.
    But, I don’t love the look of 1 side of the shirt tail hanging out.

    Dear Beth,
    You are the sunshine on a rainy day in North Carolina. Seeing some of your stunning outfits has given me inspiration to clean out my closet and start creating my own style with some great tips from you.

    Thank you,

    I need to have that polka dot sweater! I already own the jacket.

  9. Suzanne M Smith says:

    The color polka dots in the sweater are fun. I admit I have a lot of blazers–I just love them, and they can go casual or dressed up and “suit-y.” That jacket would mix and match with a million things! I’m enjoying your travel plan OOTs.

    I love the preppy look. It’s been my style all my life – ever since high school when I wore Pandora skirts and cashmere sweaters, wool Bermuda shorts, knee socks and penny loafers. I think your big polka dot sweater elevates the style of jeans. I have several Talbots sweaters I wear with denim or white shirts underneath. I started wearing one with little panda bears on it when our grandchildren were little – they loved it. I also think the preppy look adapts well if you want to add a bit of edginess to your style – like a moto jacket. I think it’s a way to add a bit of youthful style to a mature wardrobe.
