once november arrives there’s all sorts of sales that come our way. after all, the holiday season is fast approaching. and what better way to kick off the festive spirit than talbots friends and family sale? starting today, in stores and online are offering 30% off of your entire purchase – use code FRIENDS30. and boy-oh-boy does talbots have some scrumptious new items available from cashmere sweaters to riding boots. even their holiday shop is open with a variety of perfectly curated gift ideas. my christmas shopping just might look like this: one for me, one for you. two for me, one for you…
but seriously, if you can believe it, when it comes time to narrow down my selections at talbots i always have a hard time. this year, i decided to go the traditional route through-and-through and landed on a look that’s decidedly “borrowed from the boys.” and it all started with this gorgeous camel-hair blazer that is an on-line exclusive. camel always looks smart when paired with gray so the cashmere audrey sweater in donegal tweed was a definite yes. and since i love a-line skirts (what a forgiving silhouette) it was a no-brainer to add the classic shetland skirt in shadow mist into the mix.
of course, accessories are always the icing on the cake. so i couldn’t resist a little old-world charm with a reversible polka dot cashmere scarf. the color scheme ties my ootd together and will serve me well all winter long. black riding boots and a cross-body handbag in tweed boucle finish off my friends and family shopping list.
now it’s your turn to share what’s on your wish list this holiday season. and don’t forget, today is the first day of friends and family over at talbots. use code FRIENDS30 and receive 30% off of your entire purchase.
