    Wonderful information Beth, and thank you as this will help me move in the right direction after my closet purge. Your style is classic, timeless, and elegant, just the way I want to dress!

  2. Nicole De Clercq says:

    As an English teacher, I just have to know. Why do you show absolutely no respect to our language. Why? What am I missing here? Is it no longer cool to appear educated in the language?

  3. Esraa Bassiouny says:

    Okay, can I just say that your style is so chic. You are very inspiring btw. I keep telling my mom to do a blog (she has a very good sense of style and experience about fashion designing as well), because of your blog and inspiration.

    Hi Beth, I’m an English teacher as well. Please capitalize the pronoun ‘I’. My grade 5s have trouble with thos too lol. Otherwise, this Canadian girl loves your posts.

  5. Susan says:

    Thank you Beth, this is a great blog! I love so many of your outfits! The black suit with beige lace shell is my favorite! I will now focus on some basics, it is a great time to get some great buys!

  6. Brenda says:

    Hi Beth, Thank you for the inspiration you have given me. I was feeling a little stale with ideas and you have helped reawaken a fresh perspective. I am new to your site (only been viewing it for the last 5 months) and was wondering if you have posted ideas for attending the symphony, opera, musicals, concerts and dinners out. I would love ideas – I seem to be stuck with new ideas. Again, thank you for all you do. Brenda
    PS – I love Fridays with Oscar. Will you be having something with Ollie? (I have a cat and was wondering.)

  7. Jennifer A Shelton says:

    Love your blog and outfits! I am 52 and it’s refreshing to see outfits that are suited for my age group!!

    When purchasing a chambray shirtdress last fall I asked about a jacket to wear with it as my building is very cold. I was going to wear my denim jacket, but was told I should never wear denim with denim. I LOVE the look you have of denim jacket, chambray shirt, and denim shorts. I will be taking your lead on design. Thanks!

  9. Suzanne Smith says:

    Lots of good ideas here. I’ll have to go through my closet and play with some different looks. Always inspiring to look at what other folks put together.

  10. Robin says:

    In the very first posting, you have a gorgeous black and gold tote bag. What brand is this? LOVE your blog!

    • Jerrynell Guess says:

      you look so put together! People tell me that I do but I’m not as confident as you seem. Been wanting to let my hair go gray! Yours inspires me!
