I took these photos recently for a special Valentine’s Day-inspired Instagram for Talbots. I ended up loving the photos so much, I had to share on here as well. And, non-Valentine’s related, I also had to share the most amazing discovery pants-wise. The focus of the Instagram is the cute heart crossbody (that I freaking love), but the pants ended up being the best thing ever.
For years, the J. Crew Minnie Pants have been an all-time favorite of mine. They were ultimately replaced by newer styles, but I could never quite find one that fit what I was looking for. I picked out these Chatham pants from Talbots for the Instagram and was absolutely delighted by how perfect they are.
They look as amazing as they feel. So comfortable and can be dressed up as a great option for work and dressed down for a casual everyday look too. There’s also just the right amount of stretch. I think I’m going to have to get them in black and navy just for basic staples. 10 out of 10 would recommend.
(The pants run a little big, so I’d size down at least one size. I’m wearing the 0P and would typically be a regular 00 or 0 from J. Crew for context!)
And, of course, I’m super into the tie-sleeve top as well. I love the crisp white top with the pop of red pants and later in the day I wore it with ripped jeans for a super laid back outfit.
And a few close-ups of the crossbody.

It’s been fun to mix in some pinks and reds into my normal outfits for February!
