I love a cozy stripe and I am obsessed with the details on this sweater from Talbots. It’s a little bit sporty but still polished – you could wear it to a more casual work environment as I have here, or layer it on over something more casual post-yoga or on the plane.
But what I am maybe even more obsessed with is how Talbots partners with O, The Oprah Magazine every year on a collection to benefit Dress for Success. This is their 5th year doing this, and the brand donates 30% of the net proceeds from this collection to benefit Dress for Success from February 18th to March 29th. Dress for Success is an organization I’ve personally been supporting for years and I really love the work they do. If you are not familiar, they are an international not-for-profit organization that provides women with the tools they need to achieve economic independence. I work with them every year to do a big beauty product donation, and over the years have donated clothing as well.
This year, the collab consists of five one of a kind cardigans!
They are all so cute; it was very hard to choose a favorite. I chose this cute tipped one because I liked the sporty feel (it’s different from anything I already have!) but I was really torn between that and this stripey one. I may go back and buy it. TBD… what do you guys think??
I highly recommend supporting this collection if one of these cardigans speaks to you but there are other ways to help! You can drop off new or nearly-new work appropriate clothing and accessories at a Talbots store from February 20th –24th, 2020. Talbots stores nationwide will also accept monetary donations both in-store and online at Talbots.com for Dress for Success.
To date, the collaboration has raised over $6 million and helped over 125,000 women (and collected over 18,000 boxes of donated business attire) for Dress for Success®, benefiting over 120,000 women across America. In the spirit of putting my money where my mouth is, I am personally donating $1,000 to Dress for Success as a) this is an organization I believe in and love supporting and b) I am grateful to Talbots for partnering with me on this project!
Unrelated to this collab I did want to take a sec to praise Talbots’ selection of heels!
If you read my weekly outfit diaries you may have already caught on but I love their low heels – they’re all so comfortable without sacrificing style. One of my most favorite pairs of shoes are my red leather slingbacks from Talbots (from a few years ago). This year’s suede slingbacks are so cute too. I love the navy but they come in red as well. I love these cap toe pumps as well.
