I’m a big fan of color, especially during the holidays. As much as I love traditional red and green, I love whimsical pops of hot pink, cobalt, and yellow just as much. Talbots’ new holiday collection literally killed it in the holiday whimsy department. While this particular fair isle sweater fits the bill of a tacky Christmas sweater, it actually has re-wear value, unlike most others. Speaking of which, for more strictly tacky Christmas sweater ideas, check out this amazing 3D moose sweater I featured a few years back. It was (and still is) my favorite ugly Christmas sweater of all time.
In all honesty, I’ve always considered Talbots to be geared towards moms and women over 40. I guess I was wrong, considering I want pretty much everything in their winter collection. Unless I’m just turning into an older woman in their target demographic without realizing it, I recommend browsing their site, especially since everything is 50% off through tonight (12/18) at midnight. I haven’t purchased too many of their blouses, so I can’t vouch for their regular shirt sizing; however, a size small sweater or coat fits me perfectly! Head to the bottom of this post for full outfit details, plus some other colorful Christmas sweater ideas from Talbots. All photo credit goes to the fabulous Catherine Rhodes!
I also wanted to call out this watch for a quick sec. It’s from Mon Amie Watches, and they’re a pretty incredible company. With every purchase, they donate to one of five causes to help break the cycle of poverty for underserved communities in Kenya. Amazing, right? Each watch also includes a symbolical pin to help spread the word and encourage others to do more good. This pink watch is called the Health Watch, and with every watch purchased, prenatal care will be provided for one woman in need. The four other causes are clean water, food, education, and opportunity (financial literacy for women).
Shop the Look: Fair Isle Sweater, $44.75 (on sale + get an additional 50% off through 12/8 at midnight) | Skinny Ankle Jeans, $150 (currently 33% off) | Taupe Over-the-Knee Boots, $140 | Faux Fur Pull-Through Scarf, $39.75 (already on sale and available in a handful of colors– all of which are 50% off through 12/8 at midnight) | Canvas Stripe Clutch, $49.50 (get an additional 50% off through 12/18 at midnight) | Cobalt Kendra Scott Earrings, $65 (my exact pair was discontinued, so a similar style is linked) | Pink Health Watch, $95 (every watch sold will provide prenatal care for one woman in need)
