a white summer dress | fridays with oscar

  1. Janet Loop says:

    Love the white dress. It is so simple but so cool and refreshing looking. I worry about wearing all white – especially dresses – over the age of 60. Am I trying to be too young? — but you look fantastic in this dress. I will rethink my concept about wearing all white. I cannot wait to try the recipes. Oscar looks fantastic as usual.

  2. Becci West says:

    I look forward to your daily posts. Thank you very much.

      Beth, love the dress. Just wish Banana Republic’ still had that one.
      And another good recipe. I’m looking forward to trying the frittata recipe it’s looks good!!
      Have a great weekend!!

    Beth, it literally took MONTHS for my knee to look and behave as well as yours is…….congrats on your speedy recovery. Have a lovely summer!

    I am a dress girl…love how easy it is to dress. One and done! I love your garden and especially Oscar❤️
    This past Mother’s Day I received a gift card to Banana Republic and plan to shop on line this weekend, I love the simplicity of their clothing.
    I’ve been thinking about my mom a lot lately and I remembered how she changed every day before dinner. She was the traditional 50’s homemaker and I guess that signalled the end of the work day for her. Nothing ever fancy, mostly a skirt and blouse or a sundress, but after a busy day with kids and house and garden,I’m sure she needed the way it made her feel. I used to do that quite often when my kids were little, and remember how I looked forward to my evenings. I’m reminiscing a bit, I wonder if anyone else changes for the evening? Or does this practice belong in the last century 😄

    Beth, you’ve brought us through another week! Thank you! Love wearing all white, but as Blog Sister Janet writes, worry about doing so at my age and head of gray hair. Can look washed out in my case. Yet am drawn to it so am experimenting! It’s such a refreshing look. You and your hydrangeas are lovely! The recipe sounds yummy and being an Ina Garten one with your spin is a win-win. And Oscar. Love Oscar! Brings a smile to our hearts. Looking forward to our summer with you and your creativity. Happy weekend with love from the Texas countryside!~

    The dress is very cool to wear it seems and is button through front easy to wear.
    Your lovely dog Oscar is so happy and gorgeous he looks totally devoted to you,
    When you show summer seasons clothes it is winter here in Australia. It is nice to look at the summery fashions, it sort of warms one up a little. Also you are ahead of us in the fashion seasons so we can get an early glimpse of summers fashions before summer arrives here.

    You look lovely in the white dress.
    My husband is having his right knee replaced on Tuesday, any tips to help him along? He will be diligent in doing the follow up exercises.

  8. Kathy says:

    My daughter is getting married this summer. A black ad white formal affair. I am anxious to locate a dress and am concerned because of Covid about finding something floor length and what color??? I am afraid all black will make me resemble the bridesmaids dresses or someone in mourning. My skin tone is fair so a light color may not work?? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Love your blog and read it daily!!! Just never comment…..

  9. Happy weekend to you and Oscar and Ollie.

    Thank you for all the wonderful ideas and links on style for older women who want to be stylish. I look forward to reading your daily emails.
    I would like you to do something on special occasion dressing. My granddaughter is getting married in October and I’m not finding anything I like. Most pieces show too much skin or the style is “old lady”.

  11. Diane says:

    Very nice article, exceptional flow of story. Beautifully done. Thanks

  12. Pam K says:

    I love wearing white–especially an all white outfit. Tip–size up when wearing because white is unforgiving if it looks too snug.
    As usual, great outfits, Beth!

  13. Sandra Reiber says:

    Beth, I have the same taste as you, and so enjoy your channels….however (not trying to be mean) this dress doesn’t fit you. It’s pulling at the buttons in all the wrong places. Perhaps a size or two larger would fix this problem.
    Your recipes are great!

  14. Julie Mycock says:

    Hi Beth, you look lovely and you have just made me smile xoxo Julie from England

  15. Kelly says:

    You look lovely all in white! Please keep featuring dresses — I love them so much but have a hard time finding things that look good on my top-heavy body. Like Janet Loop said, I worry about trying to be too young. I’m always trying to figure out how to be fresh, but not ridiculous.

  16. Suzanne Smith says:

    The white dress is so simple and lovely–I like the simple ruffle at the hem. That frittata sounds delicious. I’ll have to give it a whirl. I’m a big fan of eating things that aren’t too heavy in the warmer weather, so this would be perfect with a nice fresh salad, as you suggested. Thanks for the recipe. Have a relaxing weekend–your hydrangeas are glorious. We have one in our front yard this same color blue and one in our back yard that turns violet, leaning towards a brighter purple-pink, so I guess our soil acidity must vary to produce the different colors. But I love them–they’re so dramatic in a simple vase. Ours aren’t blooming just yet.

  17. Sangita M says:

    The dress is simple yet classic. Looking good as always and hoping you enjoy the weekend with Oscar and Ollie!

  18. Diane R Hubbard says:

    Enjoy checking in on your site Beth! Love the summery white dress and just ordered shoes similar from Talbots.

  19. Erin says:

    Great minds must think alike, Beth! My new white gauzy halter Dress was coincidentally just delivered this morning and I can’t wait to wear it this summer.
    Your hydrangeas look beautiful.

    Bella ricetta per un ottima frittata come omelette di Kelly così semplice e appetitoso. Molto carino l’abito tu sempre così elegante e signorile nella tua semplicità. Il contesto del tuo giardino è molto rilassante e viene tanta voglia d’estate dopo una primavera così travagliata. A presto. Buon fine settimana🍀🌼🐝
