It is time for day two of the Talbots try-on haul. I had several people message that they loved seeing how the clothes looked on a real person instead of on a model. If you liked yesterday’s looks, then you are going to love today’s. I might have saved the best for last, although I was mesmerized by that cranberry-colored trench coat. Oh my, I thought that coat was gorgeous! I might be a tad partial to red, but I even loved the style and the fit of the coat. There are a couple of items later in this post that is red, and there is also a pair of sneakers. So, hop on in, and let’s get started.
This sweater makes me happy. I get to combine my newest obsession of wearing tan and my old obsession with wearing red. I love how the red letters pop off of the sweater; they catch your eye. I wasn’t sure when I bought the top what the words meant. Joie de vivre is French, and it translates to “zest for life” in English. I knew that it was French, and I figured that it wouldn’t be on a sweater if it wasn’t a cute saying. Lol!
This is a lightweight sweater, and it will be perfect for the chilly days of spring. I love the way that the sweater fits; it is snug, but it is not tight. This sweater hits slightly below the hips for a flattering look and features ribbing along the cuffs and hemline. The sweater does have a crew neckline, and even though I prefer a v-neck, I still love this sweater. It is machine washable and lay flat to dry. I am wearing a medium which fits practically perfect. If you have a zest for life, then here is the link to the sweater.
I already styled this Pique knit blazer on Monday with a paisley dress (here), but I wanted to show it to you again since it was part of my large order. I love some of the details about this blazer such as the tortoiseshell looking buttons. The longer length of this jacket is also something that I loved. I am so sick of short jackets, and I think this look is flattering to most people.
The jacket is lined with a pretty blue and white stripe print. I am wearing a size 10 in this blazer, and it fits me perfectly. The color that I am wearing is called Bright Apple, but this jacket also comes in Ivory, Black, and Rattan. I originally ordered the jacket to wear with the Joie De Vivre sweater, and you might see that outfit pop up on the blog soon. Here is the link to the jacket.
The navy sweater shell that I am wearing is one that I picked up in the Talbots store and not a part of my large order. I am not sure that this (here) is the same shell, it might be a little longer, but it looks very similar to me. The bright red jeans feature a slim leg that hit at the ankle. I like the color and style of the jeans, but I feel like they are a tiny bit too big for me. I ordered my usual size 10, but I think an 8 might be a better fit.
This is what the jeans look like from the rear. The jeans have a small amount of spandex in the material, so they have some give to them. I am still trying to get my size down on jeans and pants from Talbots, so it is going to be some trial and error for a while. I think that the length is perfect, and it would look great with flats as well as heels. Here is the link to the jeans, and they are on sale for under 25.00!!!
Y’all, how cute is this white denim skirt??? This pencil skirt is going to be great for all spring and summer, and it will be so versatile. You can wear this skirt with almost every top that I have shown you in both try-on sessions. It will look great with flats and heels, and I also think that it will look great with the shoes that I am showing later in this post.
The skirt has a zip and button closure at the waist and a split in the front. This split makes it so much easier to walk without having to take tiny steps. Lol! The skirt hits me right below my knee for a modest look that isn’t frumpy. I am wearing a size 10, which seems to fit me pretty well. Also, the skirt is a thick material, so you can’t see through the material. But, here is a tip; always wear nude colored undergarments. The nude color blends with your skin tone, so it doesn’t shine even if the material is thinner. Of course, you might look like you are going commando, so be prepared for comments. LOL!!! Here is the link to the skirt.
I have been on the lookout for a new pair of crop pants in white. I like this pair, but they are way too big for me. The size that I ordered is a 10, but the issue might have been that I ordered the curvy style, instead of ordering the regular pair.
The little button detail at the ankle was the reason that I loved the pants. I love it when my clothing has a unique feature that makes it different from all the rest. I may have to try and reorder this pair in a smaller size and cross my fingers that they fit. These are thick enough that nothing shows through. I hate it when white clothing shows your undergarments. Here is the link to the crops.
This lightweight denim dress is super cute and flattering. I love the tie-front waist because it helps to create a waistline and draws your eye inward. Plus, it is already tied for you, so you don’t have to try and make the bow all pretty, they have done it for you. This dress zips up the back for easy on and off. This dress hits me right at the knee for a cute and modest look. This has a slight fit and flare style to it, and I think that is flattering. I am wearing a size 12, which is my usual size in dresses, and I think that it fits me perfectly. Here is the link to the dress.
You don’t see me wearing sneakers often, but I love the style and look of these by Sperry. I love the all-white design and the fact that these are 100% linen. I really like how the leather laces are knotted so that you don’t have to tie them; these shoes are made to slip on and off easily. I made the mistake of sizing up, and these are way too big for me. I am wearing a 9 1/2 instead of my usual size 9. Just think how cute these will be with shorts or crops this summer when you are off to the lake of just running around town. Here is the link to the shoes.
