Talbots Try-Ons

Hi, everyone! It’s been a while since I did a try-on video, so I thought I would vlog the fall-winter looks at our local stores over the next month or so. I’m starting with Talbots, because I saw several items on line that I wanted to be sure and try on during their 30-40-percent-off mid-season sale–which is still going on.

I concentrated on casual looks, because that’s my lifestyle most of the time, and my goodness I saw so many great items.

Below you’ll find photographs of eight looks I put together in the dressing room. You can also see the two outfits I wore to shop during the two times I was there.

If you already have any of these items I show here, or similar, please let me know how you style them. I’d love to know!

Talbots Try-Ons: Day 1

TALBOTS OUTFIT #1: BARN COAT, RUFFLE POPOVER, JEANS

classic-fashion-over-40-talbots-bright-pumpkin-quilted-coat-slim-ankle-jean

(ABOVE & BELOW) Quilted Barn Coat in Bright Pumpkin and Five-Pocket Slim Ankle Jeans in Vanilla Wash. For the Long-Sleeve Clipdot Popover in Pale Blue/Light Blue (not available on line), call Talbots at Waterside Shops (239-597-2330). (But there is a classic Denim Shirt on line.) I ended up ordering the Barn Coat that evening, since I couldn’t stop thinking about it (in the size seen here, Extra Small).  I didn’t buy the jeans, because I prefer a skinny-jean fit. (These were a Misses 2, with a 29.5″ inseam.)

(ABOVE) The Barn Coat can be adjusted in back to fit tighter or looser. I liked it cinched in.

(ABOVE) The plaid lining is inside the sleeves, too, so if you fold them up you can see the cute pattern!

TALBOTS OUTFIT #2: PONCHO, LONG BUTTON UP, PLAID LEGGINGS

classic-fashion-over-40-talbots-ash-heather-cowlneck-poncho-plaid-longer-shirt

(ABOVE & BELOW) Aran-Stitched Cowlneck Poncho in Ash Heather, Windowpane Plaid Longer Shirt in Ivory/Indigo Blue, and Ponte Knit Glen Plaid Leggings. I loved (and bought) the shirt and poncho, but decided not to get the leggings, even though they’re adorable. I already have navy ones that will work well.

classic-fashion-over-40-talbots-ash-heather-cowlneck-poncho-plaid-longer-shirt

(ABOVE & BELOW) The Poncho is 50% cotton, 25% wool, and 25% nylon–cozy, but not too hot for our Florida winters, and I love the color.

TALBOTS OUTFIT #3: LONG BUTTON UP, PLAID LEGGINGS

classic-fashion-over-40-talbots-windowpane-plaid-longer-shirt-glen-plaid-leggings

(ABOVE & BELOW) Windowpane Plaid Longer Shirt in Ivory/Indigo Blue and Ponte Knit Glen Plaid Leggings. I bought this shirt, a Size Small. I normally wear an Extra Small, but I liked the looser, longer look of the larger size.

(ABOVE & BELOW) Olive Moss Sweater, Long Drapey Shirt in Hollyhock Multi, Ponte Knit Leggings in Loden. (These leggings, a Size Small, were not my correct size and were too large. They should have fit just like the Glen Plaid Leggings earlier in this post, which were Extra Small.)

TALBOTS OUTFIT #7: BUTTON -UP SHIRT, FIVE-POCKET JEGGINGS

(ABOVE & BELOW) Talbots Five-Pocket Jeggings in Shore Line Wash and Tattersall Plaid Shirt. I returned to Talbots three days later specifically to try on these Jeggings (which I ended up buying). Oh my gosh, they are my new favorite jeans/jeggings! I love the skinny fit and high waist.

(ABOVE & BELOW) Frenchie Tee in Soft Rosebud and Five-Pocket Jeggings in Shoreline Wash. On the way to the dressing room I saw this t-shirt. The short sleeves are actually longer than shown here; I simply rolled them up a few times. I bought the tee to wear with bottoms both alone and peeking out under jackets/cardigans.

    Janis,
    I loved the clog, as always. I am headed out today to try on the jeggings, fingers crossed they have my size.

      Hi, Ana Julia! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and leave your sweet message. I bet they will look great! With any pant this slim fitting, I like to leave my top untucked completely or tuck in the front and let the back hang loosely over my rear area. It creates a soft, easy-going look, I think. I appreciate you leaving your comment! Cheers ~ Janis
