Monday Musing- Modern Trends at Your Classic Retailers

23 total views

Happy Monday, ladies. I got an email over the weekend from a reader who likes to shop almost exclusively at Talbots. She needs petite garments, which Talbots always carries and she’s devoted to the brand. This reader wondered if she could still wear some new fall trends and look current while shopping at her favorite store that relies heavily on the classics. Of course, she can, so I thought it would be fun to dive into that subject.

Modern Trend Outfit Of The Week

Many trends can seem intense, but subtler options give you the same look while staying closer to your style comfort zone. So let’s have a look.

SHAKER STITCH VEST / WHITE POPLIN SHIRT / HIGH WAIST BARELY BOOTCUT JEANS / HAMMERED LINK NECKLACE / BLACK SUNGLASSES TEXTURED HOOP EARRINGS / LEATHER CROSSBODY / PLATFORM SUEDE ESPADRILLES

Sweater vests are a big trend for fall this year, and Talbots has this great shaker stitch vest in three great neutrals. They show it over a classic white shirt. I think it would look more modern styled over a short sleeve tee now and over a slim turtleneck when it starts to cool off.

Their Barely Bootcut is one of my favorite jean styles they make. They sold out of my size in white this summer, so I just ordered the black.  Flares are on trend this fall, and these are close enough in my book 🙂 My blue ones have been on constant rotation in my wardrobe for two years!

The platform espadrilles are suede, so work for now and into the fall. Black sunglassespython print leather crossbodystatement chain necklace, and simple hoop earrings are modern and easy to wear.

Getting In Shape

Have you heard of the Tracy Anderson Method? As things do, her name crossed my radar several weeks ago, and I’ve been reading everything I can about her. Just plug her name into google, and you’ll get video after video plus lots of interviews explaining how her system has changed the bodies of celebrities and regular people just like me.

“With more than 4 billion media impressions a year across the globe, Tracy Anderson is the media industry’s go-to trusted source.”

So I signed up. I’m doing the Metamorphosis 90-Day Omnicentric program, and we’ll see how it goes. After day two, I am still able to stand and sit, so that’s promising. Her program is unique in that she strengthens tiny muscles most other programs don’t, so you never build bulk, and it creates a slim dancer’s body.

Her website is full of lots of interesting articles. I enjoyed this one on food sensitivities.

Rosacea

My body is pretty intolerant of gluten. I’m currently battling a nasty rosacea attack from dinner at an Italian restaurant and my ill-advised sampling from the bread basket. I’m using prescription creams to fight the flare-up and hope to avoid using the oral antibiotic.

I’m using my Red Light Mask to help with the inflammation, but honestly, I should have just ignored the little voice in my head that wondered, how bad could three slices of Italian bread be?

How was your weekend? Do you struggle with food sensitivities?

Thanks for reading, and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
