Casual

Be Mine

I took these photos recently for a special Valentine’s Day-inspired Instagram for Talbots. I ended up loving the photos so much, I had to share on here as well. And, non-Valentine’s related, I also had to share the most amazing discovery pants-wise. The focus of the Instagram is the cute heart crossbody (that I freaking love), but the pants ended up being the best thing ever.

For years, the J. Crew Minnie Pants have been an all-time favorite of mine. They were ultimately replaced by newer styles, but I could never quite find one that fit what I was looking for. I picked out these Chatham pants from Talbots for the Instagram and was absolutely delighted by how perfect they are.

They look as amazing as they feel. So comfortable and can be dressed up as a great option for work and dressed down for a casual everyday look too. There’s also just the right amount of stretch. I think I’m going to have to get them in black and navy just for basic staples. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

(The pants run a little big, so I’d size down at least one size. I’m wearing the 0P and would typically be a regular 00 or 0 from J. Crew for context!)

And, of course, I’m super into the tie-sleeve top as well. I love the crisp white top with the pop of red pants and later in the day I wore it with ripped jeans for a super laid back outfit.

And a few close-ups of the crossbody.

It’s been fun to mix in some pinks and reds into my normal outfits for February!

Carly you read my mind! I recently started a new job and am in desperate need of a great pant! I was so disappointed when The Limited closed its brick and mortar stores taking my favorite pair of pants with it. Also, as a Razorback I’m loving the red lol. Thanks for this adorable post!

I really love this outfit! The bright red pants and shoes look amazing, and the cute little details on the shirt and bag make it so Valentine’s Day-esque.

Ah – I want the whole outfit! The shirt is fab! Talbots is making a comeback – or appealing to a younger demographic – unless it never left and/or I’m just getting older. 🙂

I absolutely love your touch of grey hair. I know you’ve written about being self conscious but I think it looks glamorous. Keep rocking it girl!

Super cute! My mom bought me a necklace from there for my Birthday one year. When people would ask where it was from, I was always a bit nervous to tell them because it always thought of it as a “mom” store but I really love their clothes! They have some pretty key pieces that are unique and trendy but still remain classic overtime!
