Happy Thursday to everyone and welcome to my post today about Talbots’ beautiful details plus a secret.
During my recent shopping trip, I stopped by Talbots and was taken with all of the special details in the current collection.
They are lovely and I wanted to point them out for today’s post.
Also, remember, my goal for every post is to show you colors which might work for you and not always try on my “autumn” palette.
Some of the items I am wearing were selected to show a variety.
TALBOTS BEAUTIFUL DETAILS
So, let’s begin with this Classic Shetland Blazer – Bicolor Herringbone in Orange ( it also comes in turquoise).
Look at all the details in this jacket…velvet trim, beautiful crest buttons, classic herringbone fabric, notched neckline and a flattering back inset waistband…designed for a slimming silhouette.
I wish I could fill my closet with Talbots jackets and their beautiful details. I love so many of them.
This Melange Herringbone Blazer in the Eggplant/Ivory colors is so polished and perfect for a more casual cozy lifestyle.
The detail here? The garment is a perfect design to marry the structured with the relaxed. A step up from a cardigan, but not quite as structured as most of the jackets.
I followed the lead of many of the Talbots’ displays and styled it with the Mockneck Snowflake sweater in Grey Sky Heather.
The sweater also comes in a lovely Classic Red…which would be my better color.
If I lived in a colder climate….this jacket would be mine!
This is the classic Shetland Blazer in Morning Plaid. It is beautiful and warm!
It has gold crest buttons, and the flattering back waistline…and, of course, with these colors in the plaid, you can pair it with many different items.
Here, I have it on with the Thankful Intarsia Crewneck Sweater in the colors Blue Ice/Pink Punch.
I love a detail that says THANKFUL!
They show the Morning Plaid jacket with this sweater online….Fair Isle Mockneck Pullover.
There are so many little details in the design of this sweater…take time to look at it carefully…lovely.
It does go with the blazer perfectly…again for the colder climates…it is warm.
TALBOTS BEAUTIFUL DETAILS IN VESTS
However, for warmer climates…the Faux Fur Collar Puffer Vest is perfect.
It comes in niine colors and the faux fur collar detail just takes it up a notch from a regular puffer vest.
Prefer a beautiful animal print detail…this is lovely….designed in the popular leopard pattern with super soft faux fur….the Faux Fur Leopard Vest.
I am completely mesmerized by the Cotton Blend Turtleneck underneath in the color Spice…perfect for my palette.
TALBOTS’ WHIMSICAL DETAILS
For the majority of the 11 years I have been blogging, I have rejected garments with messages and whimsical images.
At the beginning of my makeover journey at age 50, I tossed all of my Christmas sweaters in defiance…honestly, I wish I still had them for Christmas sweater parties!
But, I am changing! My new style personality of Bohemian/Romantic; and my new lifestyle of working at home and changing my professional style, has opened the door for more fun with fashion!
I am finding myself drawn to little details of whimsy and Talbots seems to do it with a touch of class!
I think that is why I loved this Reindeer Fair Isle Sweater.
It says winter to me which means I can wear it through the entire winter and not just Christmas season and it is lightweight.
I plan to wear it with the Talbots Easy Knit Jacket I purchased in August in the Orange Zinnia color.
I also believe a touch of whimsical details is occasionally perfect for a Gigi….my wardrobe now has garments that say I am fun and joyful!!
TALBOTS SECRET…SORT OF
I hope you will agree with me that Talbots is rocking beautiful details right now…so many lovely items.
If you go to the bottom of this page and look at my Instagram, I will be posting more lovely details there today.
While I was in-store, the sales associates said…Want to know a secret? Got me to humming The Beatles, but I said of course I do!
THE SECRET is for Talbots’ Cardholders….The first three days of Thanksgiving week, cardholders can receive Black Friday Prices early.
Plus, see the blanket in this picture…you will have an opportunity to receive one free. That may be with an in-store purchase only…not sure yet.
But watch for special sales prices coming up!!
If you want to secure your favorites, then RIGHT NOW, you can partake in the BUY ONE, GET ONE 50% OFF SALE , which runs through November 8.
Here are more garments…take time to appreciate the beautiful details and enjoy….
Does anyone else enjoy a touch of whimsy in your style these days? Perhaps this year’s Season of Joy just has me ready for more fun! Perhaps I will head to Goodwill for a silly Christmas sweater too!
