a look at my new haircut and back to summer basics

today is our last day for our summer retrospective:  we’re featuring your favorite post from the month of August:  a look at my new haircut and back to summer basics.  as you all know, hair maintenance has been a bit of a challenge this year.  i spent the majority of the spring and summer growing it out.  but when restrictions were lifted here in Athens, and I could return to the salon, i got a new look.  as many of you have shared with me, you like my hair short(er).  so that’s what i went with.  so here’s one last look at summer before we head into our fall lineup.  

back to summer basics 

the dog days of summer have arrived. and while the temps can be downright sweltering at times come August, every once in awhile, a mini-cool front blows through. on those days, i reach for summer basics. and let’s face it, what beats a pair of white denim jeans, a gingham shirt, and sandals? it’s an easy peasy outfit from head to toe J.Crew one of my go-to brands for classic style since 1983. to be certain, there’s just something so classic and chic about a simple outfit. just add a wicker handbag and this outfit is good to go on any summer day.

a perfectly preppy summer outfit

shirt | denim | sandals | wicker handbag | similar belt | similar bracelet | similar silver hoops 

love the updated vintage straight jean from J.Crew. the button fly adds an old school vibe while the high waist keeps these jeans firmly rooted in 2020. i liked the fit of these jeans so much i purchased a pair in cape blue wash.

 

a wicker handbag is my constant companion may through august. and i love to add silver cuffs into the mix every chance i get come summer. 

shirt | denim | sandals | wicker handbag | similar belt | similar bracelet | similar silver hoops 

a look at my new haircut

for those readers who follow Style at a Certain Age on Instagram, you’ve seen my latest ‘do.’ many of you have already requested a few photos from all four angles. so the next few photos are for you. i know many of you were rooting for team short along with my amazing stylist Lyric. i can’t tell you how excited she was when i walked into the salon last week. she and her assistant had their fingers crossed and clippers ready for a short hairstyle. i am totally loving this new summer haircut and i know many of you will too.   so here’s a look at my new haircut. 

happy Monday, gang!

    I love, love your haircut, Beth. I think you look bright, fresh, and sassy with this look. It’s always fun to try something new (i.e. the longer look) but I felt (only my opinion) that it made you look older than you are. I’ve struggled during these months with my own hair and let it grow a little only to realize that it makes me look tired and older, even though I might have on makeup. Love your blog..I am 73 and you are a ray of sunshine with great styling ideas……

    Hello from Maxville, Ontario, Canada, Beth,
    I love your fresh new haircut- looks smashing! And, I follow you every day and so look forward to each your post whether it be fashion, family, food or how you have coped with the death of your beloved husband (with grace and dignity).
    My classic style is similar to yours- I have been ordering from Talbots, Ann Taylor and Nordstrom, since long before they opened in Canada and I so enjoy seeing how you style each outfit.
    Most sincerely,

    Jani (Munro)

    Ahhhh! There’s our Beth. You look amazing. The hair cut is perfect and looks stupendous. Dont take this as being rude but your short hair makes you look 10 years younger, stylish (should I say more stylish), spunky and sophisticated all at the same time. You turn heads and make women want to stop you and ask “where do you get your hair cut”. All the best to you.

    Hi Beth,

    Love the shorter hair cut. I think it’s your best yet, softer on the face. I’m trying to get up the courage to cut mine. Haven’t worn it short in over 40 years but it’s so thin now that I feel I have no choice. Am still wondering how your husband was given the name “Mr Style?”

    OMG you hit it out of the ball park, Beth. While I loved your bob, it seemed at times too heavy for your face, depending on the length. This is the best of both worlds. Softer and more feminine than the super short cuts, but lighter and more alive than the bob. I can tell by the twinkle in you eye that you have found your mark. Take these pics to the hairdresser each time. They service so many people that this helps them to recreate your look perfectly. If they leave, your new hairdresser will have a perfect map. I am so very happy for you Beth. My first haircut after our lockdown, I felt like a woman again – vivacious and alive inside. We ladies need that to keep us strong. Vava vroom, Beth🌷

    The bob looked great in you, but you’re one of the few women I’ve seen who can rock a short cut. So go for it!
    Love your blog. Take care. Stay cool. Stay healthy!

    Love your new haircut. Mine has grown from something similar back in February to a bob, and the consensus is that it makes me look older. Or, as my dear son says, “It hags you out.” My husband has offered to use the scissors. Sadly, I cannot go out and get my hair colored and cut because I have to protect an immunocompromised family member.

Of course it would gave to be cut into a beautiful style such as yours. Glad you went for it! Thanks for sharing!

I must admit that it is so freeing to finally give up the worry of coloring every four weeks. By two weeks, I would have regrowth and then worry how it would look until the fourth week…eek!

    this is the first time i have made a comment on your blog and just wanted to say a big thank you
    i have been following your blog and utube for about 12 months now and am just loving your style and perspective on life and the fun of fashion.
    i am viewing from Australia and am so glad i found you as i feel like i am no longer “invisible” at age 60 and am embracing life with more confidence.
    you initially inspired me to go with my grey hair as i loved the way yours looked, and now, here you are with some more inspiration with your new summer haircut.
    sassy and classy at the same time – luv it.

IMHO, older women, with very few exceptions, look more stylish and younger with short hair. You will notice that many women who insist on wearing long hair, normally wear it up, because up brings facial features up and we need that because we are constantly fighting gravity. Having said all that, your new haircut looks fabulous!

    I have a question about the workouts in the Faster Weight Loss program you talked about a couple of weeks ago. With your 18 lb loss did you follow the workouts exactly or do your own? Can you tell me a little more about it?

    Thanks,
    Suzanne

    Love the new hair! In the one side picture it looks like it is cut up around the ear. Is it? Or is it just pushed back over the ear? I’m getting mine cut later this month and may try something very similar.

    My hair is like yours, I have been growing it out to, it is almost one length, and I like the back, but I am tempted to get it cut short, since I also look better in shorter hair, it is now grey and I like the color, so undecided now, but I like your new style.

    Love your new hair cut. Since I have been home since February ( broken ankle then pandemic) I, too,let my hair grow out and hadn’t gotten color. Your gorgeous gray hair made me decide to embrace my gray ( which is white) and I thank you for the inspiration as I love it, I also cut my hair, which I love too-now if only the bangs would finish growing out! Also love this look- I adore white jeans and anything plaid.

    I know how much it must have cheered you to get your hair cut. It’s the greatest feeling just walking around shopping knowing your hair looks great. I’ve had a health issue with an old nemesis so I can’t wait to get out and get mine cut. I have a lyric named Camille who works wonders for me.

    This is your style ! So glad you went shorter ! Sophisticated and yet playful cut! Because of your beautiful silver hair, I have grown out my natural silver after coloring for 45 years !

    The shape is beautiful. If you go long again keep that shape with the raised back and longer sides, fuller on the crown. It’s more that the shape of the long bob was not as flattering, not the length. Looks lovely!

    Love the new haircut! I always admired your short hair style. As someone who’s had short hair for years and years, I was surprised to find that my thick, previously wavy hair is now curly thanks to missing several haircuts during the shut down. I’m actually going to try for a stacked curly bob since I’ve come this far. You made a great choice to go short again. I’ll see what happens to my hair in the next few months. If nothing else, it’s interesting to hear the comments! My husband- “Can’t you brush that?”

    So few women can wear a short hairstyle and look as stylish and chic as you. The shorter style is much more youthful on you too.
