A beautiful smile...

A big hello to my lovely readers,
Sorry for such a prolonged absence. It was a busy but exciting week for me. My mom is visiting us from India and I'm overwhelmed to see her after almost two years. I'm totally looking forward to spend some quality time with her during her two months stay in this country.
Thank you all for being so supportive and for commenting. I'm being a little slow in visiting you all back, but I promise I'll do so in the coming few days.

I have never before shopped at Talbots.
The black and white floral pencil skirt in the window caught my eyes and I stepped into this hitherto unexplored zone named Talbots!
I was taken aback by the people inside the store- every single soul inside, right from the store manager, to the customers, from the lady at the check out to the lady in charge of the fitting room,  had a wrinkled face, gray hair and a broad, beaming and beautiful smile! 
Honestly, I was feeling so out of place and was ready to step out, but the smiling countenances that exuded so much warmth, pulled me in.
Immediately I was drawn to this bright, floral pencil skirt, hanging on the clearance rack and it came home with me. I'm not sure if Talbots is considered as an elderly women's store, but I'm so happy with my purchase and the beautiful people with beautiful smiles, that I'm going to step into this store again for sure.

Tell me, has anyone of you ever shopped in Talbots? 
Do you think it is an elderly women's store?

Today I'm linking up with  The Pleated Poppy  for her What I Wore Wednesday and   Still Being Molly  for her YOLOMondays link up.

  4. I lie your shirt like this and bag is gorgeous :)

  5. Juneli, welcome back girlie ;-) I did wondered where you were up to, but it's so nice your mom is visiting. I hope you enjoy every moment with her. I know how tought it is not to have your parents close to where you live both of mine live in FL and I'm stuck in
    On to your beautiful colorful outfit, I LOVE the skirt and ofcourse the bright yellow top is amazing. I actually have 2 skirts from Talbots one is a Christmas present from my sister which I still haven't worned and the other is a red/orange color pencil skirt I purchased at Goodwill back in early Spring. So who cares if the store is crowded with older ladies I mean don't we shop at F21 and H&M which is mainly covered in teen


  6. juneli i absolutely love this! the colors are so perfect! i have a yellow blouse (that i'm coincidentally wearing today) just like that so i wanna try this!!

  7. YAY!!! Have fun with your Mom while she is here. I can't believe you haven't seen her in 2 years...omg I'd die if I didn't see my Mom all the time! Love the outfit, Talbots used to be more of a conservative store, but I think their designs have taken a turn for the younger crowd.

  8. So exciting to have your mom visiting! Hope you cherish every moment with her :) Your skirt is absolutely gorgeous paired with the yellow top. Talbots seems like a very conservative store, but there are some great treasures and really well made clothes in there.

  9. Aww hope you have a fantastic time with your mom!! :)

    Your outfit is lovely! I love the bright yellow color and your nude pumps!
