Well Hello There, Talbots.

Talbots was always a store I associated with, well, grandmas.  As a grumpy preteen tagging along with my mom on shopping trips, I'd be forced to spend precious Hollister/American Eagle time among the utterly boring cardigans and bermuda shorts.

Fast-forward to present day, and it's now one of my favorite stores in the mall. (Actually, that's not saying much considering the Columbia Mall is a bit pathetic.)  Maybe it's the fact that I'm now in a workplace environment that necessitates the "boring" stuff, or maybe it's because I'm now old enough to appreciate the quality and timelessness of a lot of their clothes.

I left there yesterday with a classic navy pima cotton cardigan, but I can't tell you how tempted I was by some of the other items. I tried on this dress and fell in love:




The dress behind me was also super cute- it definitely had a Lilly Pulitzer vibe going.


Other items of note:

Adorable patent bow belt in lots of fun colors

Nautical knot necklace


Starfish sandals

They're having a 30% off everything sale in stores and online, so hurry if you see anything you like!

  1. haha isn't it funny when you start liking the adult stores you used to hate? i LOLed at the "precious time i could have spent in American Eagle"- I remember those moments perfectly.

    And how you passed up on that pretty white and red dress is beyond me! It's so pretty and sophisticated, while still being super casual. Swoon.

  4. Absolutely love every piece! I have to say, I've had the exact same experience with Talbots. Totally thought it was an old lady store for the majority of my life, and am now in love! Glad to hear I'm not the only one : )
