Meet Our Newest Contributor: Kelly Djalali

  1. Arna says:

    Hurray! I love Kelly’s recipes (I have made quite a few, and I have others I pinned on Pinterest). Kelly has always been quick to answer my questions, and I love how her recipes have so many photos of the process. I look forward to her posts on all subjects.

  2. Deb says:

    Welcome Kelly!
    Welcome Kelly!
    As a petite (4’11”), I am very much looking forward to your contributions,. I was first drawn to this blog as a 60+ years old, carrying some extra weight woman who wanted to remain fashionable. Please don’t forget us Plus Petites, we are largely overlooked in the fashion world.
    Best to you in your new endeavours.

  3. I am excited to see her take on outfits she puts together as I am 5’3″, in the petite range she is in.
    Beth, you will always be my style guru. I love most everything you put together and love the daily outfit you just recently added to your blog. Also excited to see Kelly’s recipes. I tried the shrimp vegetable pan recipe that she posted last week. I added small red potatoes and green beans. Delicious.

  4. Liz says:

    I am so excited to hear she is 5ft tall. I am 4’ 11” and it is so difficult in Canada to find fashionable Petite clothing. Can’t wait to see what she will present.

  5. Deborah says:

    You are two smart business women coming together to make a smart business decision. First, As a women Who is 5’3”, I love that we are going to see more petite styles and I also love the recipes on Kelly’s blog. They are healthy and easy. Congratulations on your new partnership! Welcome Kelly!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      I can’t tell you how thrilled SaaCA is to have Kelly on board. Such a talented woman!

    • Jan says:

      May I add my “yay” for the additional petite over 40 perspective!?!?! I’m not quite 5’2″ and the bloggers I currently follow are 5’5″-5’8″ range, so also seeing Kelly’s ideas and links will be great! I’m looking forward to continuing to check in for all of your topics and the healthy and yummy recipes! I’ve tried several already and they were delicious! Thanks, Beth and Kelly!

  6. Cheryl Harris says:

    Yea Petites! I love your posts but I always wondered if the style would look nice on my petite frame. I am looking forward to the expanded blog.
    Best Wishes

  7. Carolina Girl says:

    Welcome, Kelly!

    Look forward to your blogs!

  8. Janet says:

    Welcome Kelly — I am 4’11” and am looking forward to getting some perspective from a petite person. It feels to me that many retailers have cut back on their petite lines in the last decade. I have loved the recipes that you have posted.

  9. Janet says:

    Welcome Kelly!
    Very excited to look at your food blog and also very excited to see your petite fashions. I also am 5′ tall, 102lbs and from your photo, look to have a very similar build, so can’t wait to see your fashion suggestions plus everything else.

  10. Connie Flores says:

    So happy to have Kelly’s take on fashion as I’m only 4’9” and need help finding petite clothes that are cute, not matronly.

  11. Kathleen McDermott says:

    Kelly is darling – it is fun to hear about her background. While my interest in SAACA is fashion & style, Kelly’s recipes are welcome as she is obviously a true foodie. I’m 68 and 5’7”, but I am very happy that petite ladies will get a focus on petite styles. I’m very interested in seeing her OOTDs as I can always modify them to suit my “taller and older” wardrobe. It will be so much fun to see 40-something looks and more OOTDs, plus food. Yea!

  12. Beth Crawford says:

    I love Kelly !
    I follow her blog and have loved her recipes. I am gluten free so some of them I have to adapt, but they are always delicious.
    It will be nice to see a younger persons vision as well as our age group.

  13. Judith says:

    So pleased to welcome Kelly onboard. I’ve been an avid follower of SaaCA and as a petite person am excited to see Kelly’s take on petite styles for all occasions including travel. Looking forward to her recipes. She offers a simply visual step-by-step that means a lot to many of your fans. Beth, glad you stayed with your dream!

  14. Julie Greene says:

    Wonderful move Beth! Kelly is such cool young lady.
    My husband and I both follow her cooking blog every day and love the recipes we have made. Can’t wait to see her contributions to SAACA.


  15. Erin says:

    So happy Kelly is back! Love that you are addressing the “vertically challenged “! Lol. And looking forward to great recipes, too. Welcome back, Kelly!

  16. Carol says:

    Welcome Kelly! I have made several of her recipes and have always been pleased. I look forward to her posts.

  17. Pat says:

    This is exciting all around. Have made many of Kelly’s recipes, and have several printed to be used over and again. Love her shirt and jeans intro, my style as a women twice 40! Great joint venture🤗

  18. Deanna says:

    How wonderful! Love your blog and Kelly’s too! I love how she patiently answers questions on her blog. I have made a lot of her recipes and enjoy her beautiful photography. She’s a multi-talented gem! You are SO lucky to have her as your DIL and business associate. Thanks for striving for freshness and new perspectives on your blog. Can’t wait to enjoy her input. Go Team Djalali!!!!!

  19. Mary C says:

    Welcome, Kelly. You will be a great addition. 😊

  20. Paula says:

    This is great news! Welcome,Kelly! I’ve made many of her recipes! Her granola recipe is the best!! Looking forward to what is to come!

  21. Mary says:

    Welcome to Kelly! So excited to read future posts from her.

    • Paula Mayewski says:

      Welcome Kelly!! I have enjoyed your recipes and food content on your Instagram!! Looking forward to seeing you here on this site with fashion and outfit tips!!

  22. Susan says:

    Welcome Kelly! So glad to hear this news. I am also a petite almost 4′ 11 and can’t wait for your advice. Thank you Beth for all you do and share!

  23. Nancy says:

    This IS an exciting announcement!
    Yay! Kelly is a petite! I am very excited to see her fashion and all aspects of what she’ll be sharing, but particularly fashion for petites!
    Congrats Kelly! Look forward to all that you’ll be doing.

  24. Nancy says:

    I’ve loved this blog for years but I’ve always had to keep in mind that you are so much taller than I am in using your ootd for inspiration. It will be lovely to have Kelly, at 5′, contributing to the fashions. Being small at 5′ and with a relatively short upper body from shoulders to waist (short waisted?) has really been a challenge with the high waist pants and skirts. Please keep in mind that many of us are well over the age of 40 or 60. Welcome

  25. Cynthia says:

    Congrats on the expansion! Welcome back Kelly & 😮‍💨that Marlene continues to contribute.

  26. So happy to know petites will be featured. Always love your look, but being so much shorter, I was always wondering if
    it would work for me or how I might adapt.

  27. Deirdre Cerasa says:

    Welcome back Kelly! I am excited to see where SAACA goes in the future! Happy to be here.

  28. Lesley C says:

    This is great news for the SAACA community. . Welcome Kelly!
    Beth, you are my Style Icon. Your approach to ageing which embraces nutrition, exercise and self-care while continuing to embrace fashion is my inspiration. It has helped me in my recovery from severe Covid. I look forward to watching you in those fabulous shorts and longer videos and reading your blog as we move into our 70s and beyond. I’m so glad you had that fabulous holiday in Mexico and have a loving family and Oscar and Ollie as companions now that Mr Styles is no longer with you. You two had a wonderful life together. I’m sure he would be so proud of how you have developed the channel and the blog.

  29. Debbie says:

    Yay; petites! Looking forward to this expansion.

  30. Mary Keck says:

    Excited to have a petite perspective. I am 5’1″.

  31. Joanie says:

    Welcome Kelly! I look forward to your recipes and fashion looks, even though I am 5’10” and 64 years old. I love the Classics and it will be fun to see what ideas you contribute to SAACA.
