Happy Friday ladies. Many of you have said you like the dressing room diaries so I headed out yesterday to see what was new. I must be rusty because these pictures are grainier than usual… but you’ll still get the idea.
The new Talbots collection was just beginning to be put out so I only had a few things to choose from. Everything I tried on was petite, and most are also available in misses, woman, and woman petite.
T by Talbots is their athleisure collection which works for an active lifestyle and takes you from yoga to lunch in comfort. This yoga jacket is a great layering piece which comes in 4 colors. The pants are a classic side zip pant with lots of stretch which would dress up or down and comes in tons of colors.
I’ve never met a stripe I didn’t love and this striped zip-up is no different. I love the varying stripe widths and it has pockets! I styled it over high rise jeggings which feel as comfy as leggings. This is a perfect outfit for running errands or working around the house.
I loved the edging on this scallop neck top which comes in 4 colors. I paired it with the T by Talbots relaxed leg pants which are beyond comfy. This pull-on style comes in 3 colors and multiple sizes
This stripe mockneck sweater is a great fabric and color but sadly the exact wrong shape for me. The neckline and color placement make my wide shoulders look broader than they are. The dark pants offer a better balance than the light jeans, but this would be much better on a woman with narrow shoulders and wider hips.
These leggings have a nice high rise and lots of stretch so they’re very comfy. They would tuck into knee boots beautifully and also look great with short booties.
This gingham tunic has lots of stretch and is very comfy. I paired it here with Talbots classic slim legged pants. These pants come in tons of colors and will be great through the spring and summer in white.
Next, I paired the gingham tunic with denim jeggings and a cotton sweater. Because I am wearing the tunic in petite, I could tuck it into the jeggings which is a better proportion for my short legs.
Finally, I topped the jeggings with Talbots classic no-iron white shirt. Their classics are designed to be worn differently by everyone because they’re meant to inspire individuality. I like to wear my white shirts out, tucked in or tied at the waist for a casual look.
Have you braved the stores since the holidays?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
