Gift Guide for Her

  1. Hetty says:

    Great outfit and styling! The jacket and sweater look more gray, in your photos then on the product web pages. I’ve also noticed that Talbots has resized most of their clothing so that I must go down a size on just about everything. Unfortunately, the lengths on smaller size pants are now too short for me. Keep up the great work and best of luck on your remodel.

      Talbots has always had vanity sizing. A size 6 in Talbots = a size 8 in Vince or even Banana Republic. I know what you mean about smaller sizes also being shorter, which is why I hesitate to wear a size Small. Oh well, we’ll figure it out. As for the color of the jacket, taupes always have a hint of gray. If I had worn a brown sweater instead of taupe, I’m certain the jacket would look browner in the photos.

    I have noticed how trim and fit you look. Isn’t it great to put on pants and have them feel too big. You are one classy lady. You always look so put together.

  3. Sylvia Espinoza says:

    Great post as always. Love the wool Donegal quilt jacket offered! Am working on a friend who still thinks it horrifying to wear white after summer ends. Pfft! Thanks to you, am happy to wear white denim pants with Fall/Winter options…usually on mild days 🧡

    • Beth Djalali says:

      I really like how dressy this jacket looks! So fun to style. Glad you’re on the white denim bandwagon! It’s a lovely change of pace during the winter months.

  4. Christine says:

    Beth, I love your style and have similar tastes,. The jacket you are wearing today from Talbott’s is fantastic. However, your outfits lately have been out of the price range I am willing to spend. Can you include links to where we might find similar styles at more affordable prices?

    Hi Beth
    Thanks for the gift ideas – I’m going to get those faux fur slippers for my friends.
    So that takes care of some of my list!
    Great OOTD!
    Size 6 – you go girl!
    Take care

    There are Covid shipping delays and an international shortage of steel shipping containers. There’s a steel shortage, too. Then there were the summer storms of 2020 where I lived, with about 70,000 homes damaged. Those repairs are still happening. So you can put some of the blame on hail in Canada. Not all of those homes needed new garage doors, but this stressed an already-stressed supply chain.

    I have been a Talbots shopper for over 30 years, starting back in the day when I wore suits and high heels to a conservative office, and now in retirement. I find that their quality and styling make for some good investment pieces. I never pay full price for their clothing. Their sale prices are great, and I plan my wardrobe purchases around their sales. I then round out my wardrobe at Gap, Old Navy, etc. I do not enjoy mall shopping, and I find that once you determine your correct size that their sizing is consistent so I can shop on line successfully.

    You look great and have really inspired me over the past year or so. After your FASTer Way post last week, I finally used your link to join. It’s a life changer for me, and I wish I had joined the first time I saw one of your posts. Thank you for everything.

    I love how you pair your crop jeans with boots. I am afraid to do the same with chunky and short legs but I would love to! And I like the white jeans year round with the appropriate top. You nailed this!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      It just takes getting used to. The styles have changed drastically in the past few years when it comes to boots but it takes time to ease into the newer look.

    Loving this outfit and have ‘ingredients’ in my closet to do my version of it. I was just back in my home country (UK) on an emergency trip (my mams very unexpected final days, passing and funeral) and took some self care shopping time between visits and getting everything sorted. Found the cutest brown/tan brogue style boots that will work really well with my white jeans. And earlier this season, I got a really cute, cozy oatmeal/gray/cream toned jumper at Nordys. I wouldn’t have thought of combining these 3 items without seeing your outfit, so thanks for the inspiration! Going to play catch up with all your posts back to October 11th now 🙂
