    Hello to you and pats to Oscar and Ollie. You look fresh and cool today. I want to try the taco salad. Have fun at Tybee.

    Hi, Oscar! Beth, thanks for the wonderful recipe and cocktail! You look great in the wide leg pants … and inspire me.

  4. Lisa says:

    I love your outfit! I really love everything about your look today.

      I would like to see the wide leg pants on Kelly. I have a photo of me in wide leg pants and I just look wide I vowed to never wear wide leg pants again. The jacket that matches the pants is long so maybe that’s the problem. I’m just under 5 feet tall

        Hi MaryLynne – Kelly here…check out my most recent post How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe for an Extended Trip (link above the comments section)
        You can see a photo of me wearing the J.Crew Seaside Wide Leg Pants (in navy, petite size xs). Those same wide leg pants are also featured in my Daily Looks, and I wore them on our Nordstrom shopping trip: https://www.styleatacertainage.com/featured/nordstrom-anniversary-sale-dressig-room-diaries-petites-and-regulars/
        The tips Beth lines out above about wearing a form-fitting shirt, tucking in your shirt and wearing a cropped jacket to equalize the proportions hold especially true for us petites. I suspect, as you mentioned that the length of your outer layer was culprit and not the wide leg pants. It’s all about keeping things in proportion. A long jacket with wide leg pants will tend to swallow our shorter frame. If you like wearing the wide leg pants, I urge you to give them another try! I hope that helps! xo Kelly

    Your outfit looks cool and relaxed today, perfect for summer.
    When you discuss current trends, could you also present appropriate footwear for those looks , and include why?
    Thanks!

    Very nice outfit, light and cool!
    As to your recipe, those are my all time favorite tortilla chips! I too shop at Publix, here in South Florida and I those chips are the best. They’re thin and crispy, almost like in a restaurant!!!

    Thanks for posting this recipe for taco salad, I’ve been needing some more ideas for warm weather recipes. Happy weekend to you, Oscar and Ollie!

    Oh I love your Oscar. I have a Zoey (Tricolor Springer Spaniel) and a Hannah (orange and white Brittany Spaniel). They send lots of licks to Oscar.
    Now your outfit was lovely and beautifully comfortable looking. Thank you for your recipes! Delish! I love that you combine pretty fashion and your yummy recipes.
