The one thing that’s annoying about drastically changing my hair is that now it’s totally obvious when I’m posting outfits that are a few weeks old!

This one is actually from last weekend, but I loved it so much that I had to post, even if it doesn’t capture my new blonde-ness.

So first, seriously.  Would you believe these shorts are from Talbots?  When they offered to send me a pair of silk shorts, I was excited to take a new look at their store.  I tend to think of Talbot’s as being a better store for my grandmother to shop in than it is for me, but these shorts have basically proved me wrong.  I actually cuffed them myself, but I could totally see wearing them longer too.  Their recent lookbooks have been terrific, and it’s great to see how they’ve updated the classic pieces they’re known for.

I had such a fun, whirlwind weekend — went out to Long Island to just a cook-off between two amazing chefs for Cadillac, and then out to Governor’s Island with the Rebecca Minkoff team for a Jazz-Age theme party!  Can’t wait to post pictures of both, they were so much fun!

Gifted Talbots shorts, Topshop tank top, gifted Foley & Corinna bag, Michael Kors watch, Rock and Republic heels.

    I’ve been wanting to get some silk shorts, and I would never ever have thought of Talbot’s before reading this post! Those shorts are super cute!

    remember when we had the same sweater in 4th grade? I think it was from talbot’s kids. I also do not consider Talbots as a place I would go shopping but maybe they are changing things up which is why they wanted to send you something.

    I have a Talbots gift card, so maybe I’ll use it to get these shorts! I had no idea they had such cute stuff.  I always think of them for suits and sweaters…

    OK..they are SO cute…I am not much of a shorts wearer..make my already meaty thighs look even meatier…but if i were to buy a pair…these would def do the trick.
    They look great on you!

    I have been totally blown away with Talbot’s recent fashion…it was definitely a grandmother destination in my mind, but I’ve gotten two tops, a silk leopard print blouse, wedges and a navy and white stripe dress there in the past few months. Awesome!

    I want that bag, I want that bag, finally a designer who knows what women want! Big and can hold everything under the sun and still look fabulous doing it.
