fridays with oscar memorial day weekend

  1. Lorraine says:

    Love the 2 piece red skirt and top. The belt just finishes it off. Love your yard Beth and Oscar of course. Have a great Memorial Weekend. From Canada.

  2. RORY says:

    The skirt and top look like a dress you look fabulous! Those strawberries look beautiful too and Oscar is so handsome. How is Ollie? How do you get the pictures you post? Do you take them?

  3. Karen says:

    Beth, I love most of the outfits you wear. But when I saw today’s outfit, my immediate reaction was “that’s cute, but that’s not me”. At 63, I know what I am comfortable wearing and what I think looks good on me. (Usually not a dress.) Do you ever have that response to what you are choosing to wear and post?

      i have a boho streak in me that comes into play more in the summer months. that’s why Ralph Lauren is my favorite designer as he takes preppy, classic, and boho and mixes them all together. i imagine if i’d paired the skirt with a tee or the top with jeans you wouldn’t have given it a second thought. though i have a strong sense of style i love to keep things fresh and i love a feminine flirty outfit from time to time. i always encourage my readers to step out of your fashion box now and then. an outfit may surprise you.

    Beautiful outfit and looks perfect for summer! Oscar looks like such a sweetheart! Happy Memorial Day and here is to getting together with family and friends again!

  5. Barbara Paul says:

    A little different from your usual style Beth. You look stunning. I love ghe way you dress – stylish classic, elegant. Just the clothes I enjoy wearing. Perhaps I should be brave and try something a little more girly.

      i just shared on another comment that if i’d worn the skirt with a tee or the top with jeans you wouldn’t have given the post another thought. many times i keep an outfit balanced by pairing masculine with feminine. today, it’s all about boho chic which i love to wear especially during the summer months. gotta keep things fresh!

  6. Hi Beth, I can wait to see the master bath.
    Love Oscar very pretty decorations.
    Have a nice memorial Da!!.

  7. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend also. I just love strawberry shortcake and strawberry pie. Love the outfit, and love Ann Taylor, only wish it came in another color. I do not wear orange. Does not look good on me though you look great in it!

  8. Janet says:

    I love the Anne Taylor jacket you showed today. Do you think that is something that will go out of style quickly?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      it’s a cropped blazer so it does have a chance of going out of style more quickly. but i think this silhouette will stick around for a year or two.

  9. Sandra says:

    Lovely post! Beth, I hope you know how much you are truly helping people. Your blog may seem to be “just” style but it’s so much more than that. Your story intertwined with everything gives inspiration at many levels. Your authenticity shines through. I hope you and Oscar have a wonderful start to your summer!

    Have a wonderful Memorial weekend with your family!
    And enjoy your warm weather. We are at our cottage in Northern Michigan. It was warm a couple of days ago but today is sunny but only 50 and so windy it could blow you over.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      i remember a Memorial Day weekend when my kiddos were small that was so cold we hung out in our sweatshirts, sweatpants, and jackets and went to McDonald’s so they could play on the inside playground. stay warm!

        We lived in Reno, NV for about 15 years. Our 1st Memorial Day it snowed 3 inches. Being a Southern gal that was such a surprise. Love today’s dress. You always look great. Thank you for your blog. I’m short and can’t wear everything that you do but it gives me ideas on how to style for my size and height. Wishing you a blessed Memorial Day. Time to reflect on those who gave their lives for this wonderful country

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend Beth! Have a wonderful celebration; you look marvelous. I have had my eye on this outfit for a while and you sold me on it!! Looks perfect for summer days:)

    I know that for many, Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer, and for you, it certainly is a happy and celebratory weekend. But for us, the many military families who have to carry on with our lives in the shadow of unbearable loss, it cuts deeply every May when the day is about sales and picnics. We wouldn’t deny you your joy, but please remember that Memorial Day has a different significance for us.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      if you’ve followed the blog long enough you know we will remember our veterans on Memorial Day. there are too many members of my family
      who served in the military, not to pay homage to this somber day.

  13. Pat says:

    Strawberries look awesome. Try them with a little balsamic vinegar and a touch of black pepper. Yum.
    Love your blog.

  14. Bobbi Jo says:

    You look so pretty. Love your new haircut. Love the pictures of Oscar. What a gorgeous dog. As you can tell by my email and website, I love dogs and have two myself :-). Happy Memorial Day from Two Adorable Labs!!!
