This month has been all about investing in fewer, better pieces. From Marie Kondo’s JOY approach to bloggers talking about shopping their own closets, the theme of quality and longevity is everywhere. I was so excited to work on today’s post with a brand that stands for both of these things. Talbots was started over 70 years ago and was founded by a husband and wife duo in New England. They put an ad in The New Yorker! Today they continue to create classic pieces that you can feel good about putting into your closet. JOY! When I prevued the new collection the field jacket was my first choice. I believe that everyone looks good in army green and I love that you can style it back to basically any color. When I was pregnant with Luke I wore a lot of black. Throwing a green field jacket on like this one was the perfect way to break up my look.

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect striped tee. Not only is it a wardrobe staple but its one of those pieces you can wear all year round. What I love about this one is the stripe color is a dark indigo and would also pair perfectly with a black leather jacket or blazer. If you’re looking for the more classic vibe, this long sleeved ivory and navy version is perfect.

You know that I have a love affair with high-waisted jeans right? These jeggings are amazingly comfortable (I was shocked when I first put them on) and they are the perfect height for a t-shirt tuck. I’m wearing a 2 and find that they run one size bigger than what I’m used to so size down (for reference I’m a 26 in jeans)!

NEW NEUTRALS

I'm addicted to neutrals. I don't know when it started really...I did wear color in college? And I used to wear more black...but somewhere along the way my love for a monochromatic and tonal look became my obsession. If I had to guess, growing up and going to Belgium every summer may have had something to do with it. From the youngest age I remember appreciating the white oak wide plank floors, natural linen fabrics, and grey stone accents. I've always associated home with this palette - its my comfort zone.

As a stylist my biggest challenge is stepping out of it sometimes. I started this blog not only as a creative outlet but as a place to share my style. It has been SO helpful when it comes to identifying a client's desired look and I love the challenge.  My jacket in these pics is old. It was a splurge purchase when I worked for Ralph Lauren but I knew it would go with everything and the quality is great. I found a similar color jacket here and a steal version here. I rounded up some of my favorite neutrals below. My jeans are old from Zara but I also linked a few available styles. You can't go wrong with winter white denim. I have a splurge pair and less expensive version because I wear them so often...but you can't go wrong with purchasing THESE!

PS these are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I love that I can slip them on hands free which is the best when I'm running out the door bag in one hand baby in the other!
