  1. Lesta Little says:

    If you are short like me, 5’3″, and 135lbs ponchos and runas are not for us. Also, personally, I do not like booties with skirts only pants. Most of your clothes choices would not look good on short women

      petites can absolutely pull off most of the outfits on SaaCA. it’s all about proportions. if i pointed you to several petite-sized blogs you might change your tune.
      as a matter of fact, my dil is petite and we wear many of the same outfits.

      • Judy says:

        I agree with you Beth. I’m 5’1”, about 128 lbs. I use your blog as inspiration & oh my! I get lots of inspiration! I look for similar styles in petite sizes. Certain OOTDs won’t work for me because I’m pear shaped but again, I can still take some parts as inspiration or just wait until the next post. Keep inspiring us Beth!

          I too am a petite: 5’2.5″ (notice I have to get that half inch in!) and 125 lbs. I have a couple ruanas, booties, boots and think I can pull them off. I really liked today’s post — and kept nodding, “Yep, Yep, Yep”!

    • Tina says:

      Personally I love booties with skirts and dresses in the fall! Just curious, how tall are you Beth?

    • Maeve says:

      Despite Beth’s lead-in, I don’t get the whole poncho/ruana thing. I used to keep a shawl at work b/c I could discard it quickly for meetings, but it was there if I got cold. I don’t know anyone who wears them in a business setting. They mess up your hair when you remove them and restrict movement. IMHO driving in a long or fringed poncho is dangerous. I’ll take a blazer over a shawl any day.

    Leather/suede jackets, sweaters, vests OH MY! I can’t pick a favorite for fall and into winter. I love them all.

  3. Eve says:

    My favorite post of all! There is just so much to see and learn from these outfits. Thanks Beth. I love your blog and look forward to it every day.

  4. MW Gillis says:

    Would love to know where the camel coatigan [you are on the porch in your photo] is from? I think you used to have links under your photos of where something can be found and that’s super convenient for your readers. Thanks…good post.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      on posts where there are lots of photos for inspiration, there are shopping widgets for shopping ease. check out Shop Sweater Blazers. hope this helps.

    Wonderful post. When we see so many fabulous outfits at one time sometimes we forget that a wardrobe such as Beth’s is not put together in a month or even a few months. But from years of curating classic quality pieces that stand the test of time. Terrific photos with something for everyone.

  6. Kathy says:

    IGreat post today. I love fall fashion, cozy sweaters and leather jackets. I love ruanas, too. All your basics I have and love their classic lines. Every fall I add a new sweater or two, pants, too. But most I have had for several years and they still look great. I add a new pair of booties as needed. I especially like the waterproof lines for here in the Pacific Northwest.

  7. Deb Adams says:

    Loved this post. Some great styles. I really like your old format much better than the daily now. Show us style at a certain age. It’s why I subscribe. Be well.

  8. Lois Puglionesi says:

    I like the gray, turtleneck poncho you have on in the photos. Don’t see anything on the shopping widget I like as much. Is it available?

  9. Excellent combinations
    Love the last black blazer.
    I wonder where is from
    Thank you for sharing

  10. Paula Diekhoff says:

    I would be interested in knowing the petite size blogs you think would be helpful to those of us in that size range. Thanks!

    That cover photo with the grey poncho, jeans and booties is so my style. I live in Dallas and can wear that late fall, winter and early spring! Gorgeous! You look fabulous!
