Happy Friday ladies. Thank you so much for your supportive comments on Wednesday. Knowing others are struggling with similar life-altering issues is comforting and reassuring. This community is special because of you, thank you!
Today’s dressing room diaries is from Talbots with lots of spring fabrics and colors. My local store was brimming with new things so I had lots to choose from.
This classic white no iron shirt is a great basic which comes in 3 colors in petite, misses, woman and woman petite. I am wearing a 10 petite which fits me perfectly. These jeans are a classic 5 pocket style in cool mint with stretch built in. I’m wearing an 8 petite (curvy version here) They’re also available in soft pink here, twilight blue, sage and white here, pale gray here, never fade black here, polka dot here, medium denim blue here, and dark wash here. They sit at the waist and are the perfect slim jeans.
On the left are the petite jeans and misses on the right. The misses has a slightly longer leg and a higher rise. Because I have a long torso, the petite version doesn’t quite reach my waist (trust me) but they do in misses so I prefer that fit for me. If they don’t shrink 1/2″ in the wash I’ll hem them under.
This navy cotton and Tencel sweater has a silk scarf woven around the crew neckline. Talk about easy, peasy…the scarf is already on:) I am wearing a petite medium which fits perfectly.
This tri-colored striped tee is a cotton, polyester and spandex blend. It hits just below the hip and has button detail at the side. I’m wearing a medium in misses which is too long for me. Notice the pale gray stripes are not centered on my waist. It comes in petite, regular, woman and woman petites. Yellow is not my best color so I also tried it on in gray, mint and indigo.
This is a medium petite and the stripes are more centered on my torso and it’s slightly shorter.
This sweater is a great weight, slub knit and color for me but the neckline is anything but flattering on my broad shoulders. It may be hard to see but I pulled the front into a V to show how much more slimming it is on me with a v-neckline.
This sweater is a lightweight cotton blend and perfect for layering. It comes in 5 colors in misses, petite and woman. I am wearing a petite medium. These chinos are a cotton/spandex blend, available in misses, petite and women in 5 colors, curvy fit here. I am wearing a 10 petite which runs true to size but a bit long for me so I would turn the hem under.
I topped this off with a navy knit blazer for a classic, preppy look.
These steel grey skinny jeans are the same as I showed above in white. I have these from last winter and love how comfy they are. Gray is a great neutral which easily pairs with other colors. The black and white check of the belt works nicely with the grey jeans.
I couldn’t resist this pink modern trench coat. It has shoulder epaulets, storm front, and back yoke and welt pockets. It comes petite, misses and available in a gold ochre color. I’m wearing a petite medium which fits perfectly and clearly, I love it :).
Have you started looking at the spring clothes that are coming in?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
