Most of us are shopped out from the holidays plus it’s hard to get excited about warm weather clothes in January. My local mall looks like a wasteland and most of the merchandise seemed boring until I wandered into Talbots. They’re having their famous Red Hanger sale with 50% off all markdowns and some amazing deals. What I zeroed in on was their pretty, fresh colors for spring. The only black in this entire post is my peds:) The rest is indigo, blue and navy which we talked about here.
This classic trench coat is cotton, Lyocell, and spandex which makes it very comfy. The fit is slim, without extra bulk around the waist. This is the perfect weight for spring weather. I’m wearing a small in regular but would be better in a medium petite which would give me a bit more room across the chest and also be shorter. The color is simply stunning. The turtleneck and jeans are what I wore into the store. The turtleneck is a deep navy.
This cotton shaker sweater is soft, substantial but not as warm as wool or cashmere. Perfect for when the weather warms up or right now. I’m wearing a petite medium which fits well. The pants are navy and fabulous. It has pull-on styling and lots of stretch. I like this length on a slim pant so this 8 petite is perfect. It runs true to size.
This 100% cotton turtleneck is super soft and comfy. It comes in grey or this pretty rose stripe. I’m wearing a medium regular which makes the sleeves long on me, but I like them this way. It runs true to size. The neck is nice and loose so it doesn’t highlight extra neck skin or feel like it’s choking you.
I love, love, love these jeans. They’re a flattering high rise in a deep blue wash. The straight leg is a nice change from skinny and a better balance if you carry any weight up top or in your midsection. I’m wearing 6 regulars. This jean is intended to be shorter so the regular length is perfect for my short legs. #shortpersonwin.
This classic knit blazer is a very deep indigo and the perfect weight for midseason or mild temps. Love it! I’m wearing a petite medium which fits perfectly. It’s a long blazer so the regular version was miles too long on me. It has patch pockets in front and a one-button closure.
This T by Talbots jacket is the prettiest Thistle color, I love it! It’s unlined, very lightweight, and perfect for spring. I’m wearing a medium petite which is too short for me. Because I have a long torso, the drawstring is about an inch too high and misses my waist. It would look and feel much better in a small regular. These cotton chinos are an 8 petite and too loose for me around the hips so they run a bit large. They must be selling fast because my store was already out of the 6 petite.
This sweater has a coastal motif pattern that does look a bit status-like and sort of preppy to me too. I’m wearing a regular medium which is a bit too long for me. You can see how the chino’s needed to be one size smaller in this photo. On the right, I’m wearing the same sweater with the Chatham ankle pant in a 6 regular in navy. I love the fit of these pants. The side zip means no extra bulk upfront. I have the hem folded under one inch so they fit true to size. I prefer this sweater with a dark pant…what do you think?
The cozy terry top is hip length and comes in several colors. I’m always a fan of 3/4 sleeves and the cute lacing detail adds a nautical touch. I’m wearing a medium petite and it runs true to size. That white stuff you see on the sweater is in the mirror.
These are the same wonderful straight jeans as above but the medium wash. I may need both…they fit that well. These will be great with flats, short booties or sandals when the weather warms up. This classic raincoat is one of my very favorite colors. It’s perfect for spring. It has a soft lining, a hood for when it’s pouring down and a drawstring waist to snug up and keep drafts out.
Have you given any thought to what you’ll be wearing this spring?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
