Top: ℅ Talbots // Jeans: ℅ Talbots
Shoes: ℅ Chinese Laundry // Clutch: South Moon Under (Last Season)
Earrings: ℅ Kendra Scott // Watch: Michael Kors
Lip: MAC ‘Rebel’

Okay, so even though it’s as hot as hades outside, fall is right around the corner, y’all. I promise. The time to stock up on denim is now. It’s something you can wear now on those cool summer nights and well throughout fall and winter. I’m loving the new Talbots Flawless Five-Pocket Collection in particular. Since I’m a former dancer and well, never know when I have to show off my skills, I opted to try their jegging. It’s incredibly comfortable and super flattering!

My office is pretty casual, so this is a great ensemble that I can wear both to work and on the weekends when I’m out and about in Arlington. Can I just get a nice 70 degree now, Mother Nature? That would be great, kthnx.

    I love these jeans on you.
    I live in jeans during the fall and winter month so it’s essential for me to have a few pairs lying around.

  18. That clutch is perfect!! Such an amazing color. I would have never thought to shop at Talbots for jeans but I will definitely have to check these out as I am always finding jeans that are just too tight and rigid!

    Would you believe I own ZERO pairs of jeans! And not because I hate jeans, but because I can never find any that fit my (very short) petite frame. I know Talbots has a good petite section so I’ll have to start looking there!

  22. This outfit is absolutely PERFECT for Casual Friday! I am in need of a new pair of jeans. Never thought to check at Talbot’s!
