I was invited by Talbots to peruse their new arrivals and share some items I feel would work well this summer, and also look great as we head into fall. I was impressed by the collection and I immediately began thinking of creating a summer to fall transitional capsule wardrobe. Inspired by Talbots' color Blue Majesty in their new arrivals, I created a capsule wardrobe of pieces totally wearable now, but equally as versatile and stylish as the temps drop into fall and even into winter.
This post is sponsored by Talbots, but all thoughts are my own.
Looking at the new arrivals from Talbots, I instantly thought of my mom, who loves clear bright colors like magenta, turquoise, and royal blue. Blue Majesty is the color blue she is always wishing retailers would offer and I know once she sees this summer to fall capsule wardrobe she'll be placing an order with Talbots!
I love this shade of blue too. It's cheery but not a spotlight stealer. It adds a timeless pop of color to neutrals like black, white, navy, and gray and provides elegant contrast to olive, taupe, cream, and camel. I also love pairing a blue like Talbots' Blue Majesty with other brights like Barbie pink, mustard yellow, leaf green, and chartreuse.
For this summer to fall transitional capsule wardrobe, I used Blue Majesty as the base, and styled it with white, denim, and a Glen plaid to let the color be the hero of each outfit. While Talbots is my go-to for staples like knit tops, jeans, and shorts, there's a good chance you may already have similar pieces in your closet. I hope this capsule inspires you to shop your closet for summer to fall transitional dressing, and see how those items may be able to live new lives with the addition of some new pieces or colors added to your wardrobe!
