updated classics (or, talbots goes hipster)

June 27th, 2011

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.
