We’re well into Fall and Winter is quickly approaching! I feel like I’ve been prepping for my Fall closet, but in Texas that transition is super tough to plan for because of the heat. Luckily, Talbots is having their Friends and Family Event starting on October 23rd so I can accurately plan for my Winter wardrobe. For those of you who haven’t been to Talbots in a while – you’re missing out. Admittedly this was my first experience with Talbots – I’ve always known they’ve been a longtime staple in women’s closets, but when heading to their website I was incredibly excited to see such amazing colors, designs and trends for a wide range of women included petites to plus (most of their items come in petite, regular and women’s sizing). So – check for inclusivity!
Talbots is also timeless. While there are elements of trendy items, most are pieces that every woman needs in her capsule wardrobe. As I get older, the importance of well-made, tailored clothing that can last for years is important. Less of fast-fashion, and more of the classics that are quality-driven and worth every dollar you’re spending on them. You’re going to find your classic pencil skirt that is tailored, polished and in a wide-range of colors – but you’re also going to find a sequined pencil skirt that can sit in the same woman’s closet and paired with her favorite white-button up for an elevated twist on the everyday.
Long story short – I’m in love with Talbots.
Some of my favorite pieces to snag from the Friends and Family sale are the Longer Length Perfect Shirt, Bi-stretch High Waisted Pant in Plaid and the Italian Wool Coat. Let’s start with the Longer Length Perfect Shirt. As someone who is busty, finding a well-fitting button down that is not too boxy to accommodate for the size you need for the chest is difficult to say the least. Not only does this fit like a glove, the fabric is so luxe I kept telling my boyfriend I would never buy button downs from anywhere again – How could I? Not once did a button pop open, or did I experience the awkward gaping – This shirt was perfectly crisp and shapely throughout the day.
Also… you may have noticed something odd. I’m in pants. With my partnership with Talbots I wanted to try something I never gravitate towards. So, I chose this patterned pair of tailored pants. Not only are patterns incredibly flattering when you wear them on the bottom (thanks to the high waist). I loved the fabric and never felt constrained or like they weren’t flattering (which is one of my greatest insecurities when wearing pants). I also opted for a half-tuck for the shirt which showed off the waist. I’m so over the moon with these pants, I’m snagging a few more pairs with this sale!
And last – this jacket. In Texas, we get few chances to wear our winter coats, so I always pick bright colors I can truly make a statement with. This Pink Heather color is no exception. Not only is the color so beautiful, I have never had such a luxurious piece of clothing before. I know this coat will be with me for seasons not only due to the immaculate construction, but this is such a statement that adds a sense of whimsy to any conservative pieces (especially as wardrobes tend to get less colorful during the winter – Not this girl, at least).
