    Gorgeous post and lots of helpful hints. I keep a steamer in my closet as well as a spray wrinkle remover for spot touch ups. Also have a sweater stone for heaver fabrics, woolen scarves and sweaters. For more delicate fabrics, I use green scouring pads from the cleaning section in the grocery store. I cut them into smaller squares and keep a spare in the car, along with a lint roller, (because border collie are prolific shedders). It’s all in the details 😉

  2. Exceptionally useful column, all of the outfits look so pulled together.

    Hi Beth,
    Perfect post! Great reminder about good posture. Love the fragrance reminder too. And of course, seeing O & O lounging in your closet made me smile!

    Re clothes wear out. Especially underpinnings. Bras wear out & most women wear the wrong size. Replace regularly & get a bra fitting.

    This post was so helpful and fun to read! It was like having all the basic tenets of style in one place. Thank you! P.S. I love the monochromatic outfit idea and will be trying it more often!

    You’ve been influencing my style for several years as I transition from professional life into retirement. Some of my go too are Jo Malone cologne and Essie pale nail polish. You’re also right that good skin care helps defy aging. And, one final trick I use is to always check the “back” view in a mirror–sometimes what looks good in a front view looks bad from the back

    this article resonated with me. i retire in a few years. looking good is important to me, from taking care of my skin, hands and especially feet (i dislike crusty feet).
    i have been working on my wardrobe. i have too many pieces and so i see the need to keep it simple yet looking good. thanks you for a great artticle. you are beautiful outside and im sure inside as well.

    Why not put fragrance in your hair? It seems like it might preserve the top notes. I have some fragrances with top notes I love, but heart and base notes I don’t love as much. Is there a way to wear them?

    Could you share the source for the loose fitting white shirt you are wearing under the black blazer in this post?
    Thank you for the great style tips!

    Hello! I found your blog recently and love it! You have inspired me to go through my closet and really be intentional about my outfits … it makes me feel better each day! I wondered if you could provide the source for the beautiful white or cream blazer with the fringe-like edging. Thank you so much!

    I know you had light treatments on your face last winter. Did I miss a post on how it turned out after the 3rd treatment? I have developed brown patches on my face in the last year so would like to know if you recommend it.
