it’s no secret i’m a big fan of Talbots. and their Friends and Family sale is in full swing. since i was a twenty-something, i’ve frequented this iconic store known for ‘the classics.’ back then i loved a good blazer just as much as i do today. as a young mother in my thirties, several of my ‘most favorite’ outfits were from Talbots. like this pink floral denim and chambray top. i still have a distinct recollection of wearing this ootd while on vacation in San Antonio. the sights we visited like the Alamo and walking along the Riverwalk. clothes have a way of conjuring memories.
Talbots was my ‘go-to’ store all while my kiddos grew up. helping me look casually polished for their first day of school in a vibrant striped tee and button skirt.
in my forties, we lived on a tiny island in the South Pacific. it was around the time the internet sprang to life, and online shopping was in its infancy. can you believe Talbots was the only store that shipped to Guam from the States at that time? let me tell you they saved my fanny on more than one occasion. if i hadn’t been a loyal shopper thus far they would have sealed the deal right then and there. one of my favorite outfits to toodle around the island (a mere thirty miles by ten) was side zip khaki pants, sleeveless black sweater, and leopard sandals. or my pink paisley shift dress and pink ballet flats that i wore every chance i got. but Talbots classic staples have always been the bread and butter to my outfits. white tees, black or navy shorts found their way into my suitcase any time the djalali family ventured to fun destinations.
now that i’m in my fifties i still love the brand that stayed true to its classic roots. these days you’re bound to see a distinctively modern twist with many of their key items. and you’re guaranteed to see me wearing something from Talbots on any given day. ‘cuz i do love the classics, and i’ll always have a prep to my step.

and Talbots offers something for every figure out there. yes, petite through plus size is available. i’ve always been drawn to their whimsical accessories, shoes that range from sneakers to heels, activewear that’ll keep you on the move in style, and if there’s a special occasion headed your way this spring i’m certain you can find something to wear from Talbots. sometimes, it’s a one-stop shopping destination. since there are two more days left to shop Talbots Friends and Family sale with 30% off your entire purchase with code FRIENDS30 i thought we’d take a stroll through their online store. it’s a great time to stock up wardrobe staples or splurge on something special. here’s what caught my eye.

I Love the picture of you and your sons…very handsome!
Again you have proven classics never go out of style! Any of these outfits could be worn today! You sure have handsome sons. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful information. I believe you just might be my favorite blogger, especially on Fridays as I am a big lover of animals! Thanks again!
Agree! I’m also a Talbots fan–and you’re so right–they are classic. And typically they last forever, which is great. Fun to see your trip down memory lane. That does look like Riverwalk.
You look the same! I love Talbots too.
What a delightful trip down memory lane (your sons are so handsome!) I must say Beth, that you have grown in beauty over the years and your style has always been terrific. You seem to have known, even as a young woman, what looks good on you.
