this post brought to you by Talbots.
it’s never a hardship on my part to partner with one of my favorite brands, especially when they are commemorating a milestone. yes, Talbots is celebrating 70 years of modern classic style. 70! isn’t it comforting to know style doesn’t have an expiration date? as a matter of fact, Talbots collections keep getting better and better with each passing year. and to pay tribute to this special occasion, they created a capsule collection of iconic pieces – seven in all. one for each decade. but let’s not forget Talbots was founded all those years ago by an entrepreneurial woman with a vision for a modern classic style. one of many reasons i have great respect for Talbots.
are you ready to take a look at the collection? here it is. a crisp white button-down inspired by 1940’s fashion. a contemporary take on the 1950’s-inspired pearl necklace. the little black dress from the 1960’s. a 1970’s inspired cable boucle sweater. a slimming and sophisticated 1980’s statement blazer. it’s pink, ladies, pink! a luxurious silk square scarf represents the 1990’s. and last but by no means least is a beautiful croc-embossed statement bag.
through the years Talbots has dressed some of the most influential, powerful, (and, yes, cool) women. from Oprah and Katie Couric to Taylor Swift, Jessica Alba, and Michelle Obama.

today, my ootd is all about lady-like details that are perfect for a nine-to-five look or power lunch. a crisp white blouse with gorgeous statement sleeves – pleats – is paired with an on-trend check skirt . a pretty pair of suede pumps with a flirty back bow kick this outfit up a notch. but a sophisticated triple-strand pearl necklace adds the finishing touch.
don’t forget, this saturday, september 23rd, grab your favorite girlfriend, mother, sister or daughter and head to your local Talbots where cake is being served in honor of their 70h anniversary. and for those loyal card-holders with any purchase made with your Talbots card, you will receive a limited edition pair of pearl earrings.
happy hump day!

Classic is always in style! I was thrilled to see a young gal the other day dressed in Talbots attire. She made the outfit revelant with her choice of shoes and jewelry. You both look fab!
Amazing look! I love that skirt and the sleeves on the top.
Love this outfit!
You look dashing and I absolutely love that skirt !
Very pretty! I had seen that skirt in the catalog but I love that it’s just about at the knee. You look great. I agree–Talbots has some really lovely things this season.
