over the past few months, i’ve given you glimpses into my home through a series we refer to as a day in the life. (anyone else a Beatles fan like me?) today, we’re continuing that series with a tour of my YouTube studio. most of you probably know that we run a YouTube channel as part of style at a certain age. junior style and i shoot videos twice a week, so if you haven’t already, make sure to check it out. but for now, sit back and enjoy a behind the scene look at where we spend a lot of our time these days.
today’s OOTD is a style formula i reach for regularly during both summer and winter: it’s black and khaki. almost amazingly, there are so many different ways to wear this combo. long sleeved shirt and shorts; short sleeved shirt and pants—you name it. we’re featuring a pair of straight pant chinos from J.Crew—a classic preppy look for sure. i’ve paired the pants with a black sleeveless turtleneck from Nordstrom. i’ve got to say, though, that my favorite part of my outfit today is my sandals. how fun are these ankle-strap sandals? leather with a hint of snakeskin—one of my favorite pieces from this summer.

a few months ago, we gave you a tour of my refinished basement. we’re extending that tour today and showing you where exactly we shoot our YouTube videos, which of course happens to be in that very basement. over the past year, we’ve slowly redesigned the space, and i’ve got to say, i’m liking where we ended up.

we’ve carved out a space that works perfectly for meetings but can be easily transformed into a studio where we can shoot videos. these swivel chairs are a favorite—deep and comfy. they create a sort of “coffee house vibe”, and believe you me, we drink a lot of coffee around here. i picked up a Nespresso machine last fall, and it’s honestly pretty revolutionary just in terms of its ease and usability. this one in particular allows you to make both espresso and coffee, and i highly recommend it.

Your room turned out beautifully. Is that another fireplace in there, too? I love it. And it looks as if you get lots of sunlight in there, too.
the basement is a walkout so lots of natural light. I’ve been thinking of putting in full length french doors for even more light. we’ll see…

Very nice light and bright place to shoot. I’m always intrigued by your art work. It’s so interesting. You did a outstanding job as usual on your makeover.
I like Black and Tan together but rarely wear it because I don’t look well when I put black next to my face anymore. The shoes are just right for this outfit. I have a pair that are black and leopard like this. I love them.
we absolutely LOVE this space! great place to work.
What a fun, inviting and bright space. I love the chairs! They practically invite you to sit down and curl up for a chat.
and the chairs are so comfy! you can always find ollie lounging in one.
I am not a fan of those brown pants! Sorry but not one of your best.
Love the room, simple, modern and uncluttered. Great for work and family fun. The natural light adds so much.
You and your posts always give me inspiration. Thanks Beth!
