fridays with oscar takes a spin on classics
pants | top | sandals | clutch
august has arrived, and we are busy here at the djalali house with a few outdoor diy projects. ahem, i have all three of my kiddo’s home to help with some heavy lifting. there are several zones to our backyard, and zone 1 is getting a major overhaul. the first step was to remove a tree which a local tree removal company did two weeks ago. afterward, our landscape contractor removed the stump and roots then tilled the yard to primp and preen it for grass, shrubs, raised beds to grow herbs and a barbecue station. there’s always prep work before any project commences inside or out.
needless to say between airport runs, catching up with my kiddo’s, then putting them to work, mr. style and i have been busy. plus, i don’t know about you, but we are trying to enjoy every minute of summer that seems to be disappearing rather quickly…
whenever that happens, i like to reach into the vault and share a timeless classic with you. today’s fridays with oscar is a repeat from our san francisco days. as a matter of fact, it is a photo that commemorated our 32nd anniversary. tomorrow we will celebrate 34!
hopefully, you will enjoy a little san fran eye candy with a few painted ladies smack dab in the background. plus, this haircut is one of my all-time favorites. now that i’ve finally found a fab stylist here in georgia i’m toying with the idea of sporting an asymmetrical cut once again.
but first, let’s talk about timeless classics and how they work in tandem with trends. a pair of black pants belongs in everyone’s closet. probably more than one pair as they are so versatile. this cropped pair is by banana republic but take a look at this on-trend wide-leg pair or the very popular sloan fit here. sloans are my all-time favorite black pant as they hide a multitude of sins and are comfortable to boot. and i do mean comfortable.
pearls are my go-to gem stone. they look terrific with a single strand or layered as in today’s ootd. coco chanel loved to throw on more than one necklace at a time so let’s take a cue from the master.
okay, ladies, are you ready for the weekend? ours got an early kick-off this week. but before i sign off oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend
