    Beth, I adore you, your style, and your blog! I look forward to seeing your blog everyday! You are so beautiful, elegant and stylish! Your blog on grief has helped me as well as my 94 year mother has gone through serious medical challenges the past seven months. She currently is going through two painful fractures to her low back. My brother and I are caring for her as she was dismissed from the hospital two days ago. I’m in the “pre-grieving” process as I see her decline. Anyway, through these months you and your blog have brought me joy. Keep up the wonderful work. I live in KS so not far from your roots😊

      it so hard to see our loved ones decline physically. but it’s always one day at a time so take time to enjoy your mother just as you have for all those years she’s been in your life. take good care of yourself and your mom. xo

    Dior’s “new look” is a far cry from today’s shirtdress look with his emphasis on uber femininity and structure!! I think the look might go back to the “shirtwaists” of the ’90s that featured the button down top and the long skirt. One of the common factors between the two looks is the ultra slim waist that the fashion showcased. Thank goodness that time marches on and we have a much more fluid shirtdress that is forgiving and relaxed!

  4. New to your site and just love it. I love your classic chic style. These clothes and ideas are items I would wear. So my
    style. Love the shirtdress outfit. Looking
    forward to seeing your other blogs..

    Love this look and the whole idea behind the post. I often do that with outfits – I ‘winterize’ them boots, tights, turtlenecks, etc. then ‘summerize’ them with lighter weight shoes/sandals, lighter weight accessories. It makes your wardrobevvll

    Caramel 💝. I am definitely going to get some. Never thought of wearing it with beige as I thought it would just be insipid – I was sooo wrong.

    I like Klandi’s idea of all season for the shirt dress. I have such a high waist, I’m not fond of them closed, but love wearing them as an open duster over a monochromatic outfit, with skinny pants and kitten heels or booties. Never thought to wear them in the winter but genius idea. Thanks to both of you. 🌷

    Hi Beth,
    Love a great shirtdress so it didn’t take me long to order this one and the tissue turtleneck. Such a beautiful, versatile outfit. Thank you!

    Oh, Beth, those moms on “Father Knows Best,” and, “The Donna Reed Show” impressed me so much as a kid in their shirtwaist dresses. I just knew someday I wanted to grow up and run my house wearing shirtwaists! Fond memories. Welcome to the new blog sisters! Lovely family of ladies with like interests you’ve bloomed, Beth. On the subject of belts, they do help remind our waistline that there are boundaries! Years ago I wore belts. Time to go back to the future!~
