What I Wore In Charleston

  1. Pat White says:

    Great first post Kelly! Love your choices for your trip. I will continue to follow your food blog and I’ve already printed the recipe for the strawberry and goat cheese danishes. Yummy!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thank you, Pat! I am sure you will enjoy those danishes! xo Kelly

        Hello! The site wouldn’t let me comment…so I’m adding to an existing post. I wondered what the weather was like? I’ve never been able to wear a jacket in Charleston…maybe you could add some layering ideas next time? And I love your bangs! …

  2. Joan says:

    Welcome—-I enjoyed reading about your trip and seeing the pictures of the sites and your outfits! I look forward to your future posts.

  3. Nancy says:

  5. Nancy Hallenbeck says:

    Congratulaions Kelly! Charleston is the perfect backdrop for your first post. I enjoyed seeing the outfits and the pictures of Charleston.

  10. RORY says:

    Great post Kelly. I really like your taste in clothes and they look great on you.

  11. Susan Kelley says:

    Grreat post. Since Savannah is one of our fav places to visit,I especially liked the restaurant suggestion,as will my husband who loves oysters. I have followed your recipes and enjoyed all of them that I have made. Good job,cute clothes too.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thanks so much, Susan! We were in Charleston, but we go to Savannah a fair bit, so stay tuned for Savannah recommendations this summer! xo Kelly

  12. Elisa says:

    You look lovely Kelly—great choices. As a 5 feet/104 lb petite, I appreciate seeing how similar items may look on my body. Just ordered the J Crew button-up—have been looking for a green gingham for a while. Thank you (also love your recipes/instructions).

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hello Elisa, Sounds like you and I have the same stature! I am excited to share fashion ideas with you, fellow petite! xo Kelly

  13. Lea says:

    Thank you Kelly for your wonderful post. My daughter and I are visiting Charleston in May. It
    will be our third time there. Love the history,
    people and food. 🇨🇦

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thank you Lea, that’s great you will be visiting Charleston soon. I am already looking forward to our next visit there! xo Kelly

  14. pat says:

    Love the outfit with gingham blouse, blazer and
    especially the linen skirt….Does the skirt run small? Also love the travel pics…You look so put together well and pretty…thanks

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thanks so much, Pat. The skirt runs true to size, I am wearing a regular size 0. So the length is a little longer than on a taller person, but that suits me just fine! xo Kelly

  15. Mari says:

    The outfits are very nice and look great on you. Women of any age could wear them and look appropriate for so many occasions. I did pop over to Madewell and look at their bags. They have some really nice ones and are way more affordable than designer bags. That’s where I’m buying my next one. Or two.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thank you, Mari! Glad you checked out Madewell bags. I still have (and use) Madewell bags from 8 years ago, very well-made. xo Kelly

  16. Carolina Girl says:

    Love Charleston! Looks like you’re at the Belmond. We’ve enjoyed staying there. I enjoy your ‘looks’ too b/c they’re a little diff. than your MIL being a petite. I’m 5’2″ so can relate. I’ll have to check out your restaurant suggestion.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thank you, Carolina Girl! We were at Charleston Place, which is a wonderful hotel – such a perfect location. Definitely check out 167 Raw, it was great! xo Kelly

  17. Lisa says:

    Great post Kelly. Loved your outfits. I especially loved the top with the black suit with your beautiful shiny hair.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thank you so much, Lisa! A little black suit is such an easy, go-to look. Plus the opportunities for tops and accessories are endless! xo Kelly

  18. Susan says:

    Great first fashion post Kelly! Love the green shirt, I just got a similar one, from BR, in light pink. Too cold here, I haven’t worn it yet. Happy to see you style one! Can’t wait for it see more of your petite ideas(4’foot almost 11″ myself). I am so happy to get advice from another petite!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Susan, Thanks so much! I can’t seem to have enough gingham in my closet– Lol! I look forward to sharing more style ideas with you! xo Kelly

  19. Susan Cahill says:

    Great post Kelly! Can’t wait for more petite advice. Love the green top. I bought one similar in light pink.

  20. Janine Smoker says:

    Wonderful post! I loved the Charleston setting as it’s one of my favorites places in the world to visit! I am a foodie and we hit the restaurants every time we visit. On your next trip, book a table at FIG (Food is Good) or 82 Queen. Welcome to the blog!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hello Janine, we heard a lot of talk about FIG, we were staying right down the street from it. We will add it to the list for next time. Thanks so much! xo Kelly

  21. beth byrd says:

    Very lovely post, Kelly. My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Charleston exactly 23 years ago this month — such a great city. You look so stylish and comfortable in all of your outfits — the perfect way to be when traveling. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts on fashion and cooking!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thanks so much, Beth. Charleston is wonderful city for a honeymoon! xo Kelly

  22. Sylvia Espinoza says:

    So proud of you! Love everything in this first post. The comments are fantastic! Petite ladies sound so happy! Wish you much success, Kelly 🥰

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Sylvia! It’s so nice to have these two spaces to connect with you! Thanks so much for all your support! xo Kelly

  23. Nancy B. says:

    Welcome Kelly! I really enjoyed your post. I very much liked both outfits. The pleated shirt with the suit especially stood out to me. Very attractive. Thank you.

  24. Deanna says:

    Kelly!!!! Congrats on your inaugural stylish outfit post. Love the outfits you wore in Charleston. Oh oh…looks like you may be a purse lover! Dangerous, as I may have to try a Madewell bag! Love this blog as much as your food posts.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thank you so much, Deanna! I definitely have a soft spot for purses…and shoes! I am so happy you enjoyed the post, xo Kelly

  25. Nancy says:

    Wonderful first fashion post Kelly; and in a place I’d love to visit. I especially liked the blazer outfit with that cute top and shoes! Nice to see a petite model! Although I’m closer to Beth’s age, it’s still fun to see how a petite styles the same type of things that many of us wear no matter what our age!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thank you, Nancy! Beth and I are a good pair because she and I have a similar style and philosophy about classic fashion items. I am excited to bring the petite perspective to Style at a Certain Age! xo Kelly

  26. Deb Masella says:

    Welcome Kelly! You look fantastic – especially the night look – great styling and attention to detail. That blouse is everything! Looking forward to seeing more from you!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thanks Deb! That top is really fun. I got it last summer at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. You never know what goodies you’ll find during the Anniversary sale! xo Kelly

  27. Kathleen McDermott says:

    Color me happy. Love this post – the scenery, the charming outfits and adorable you with that fabulous hair. I’ve worn bangs my whole life. At 68, I’m every bit as interested in your posts as Beth’s. So glad you joined SAACA. Can’t ever have too much fashion and style.

  28. I need to to thank you for this excellent read!! I certainly enjoyed every little bit
    of it. I’ve got you saved as a favorite to
    look at new things you post…
