A couple years ago I walked into a store called Talbots here in Canada. They had beautiful corduroy pants in a variety of colors. Unfortunately, I ended up leaving the store empty handed due to them being a bit pricey. I will get back to the Talbots experiece shortly but first let me share with you why I started loving the corduroy material.
I consider myself lucky to receive a hand-me-down every once in a while from my stylish mother. This fall, she handed me a black corduroy jacket. At first, I was hesitant to accept since I tend to think of corduroy of somewhat an old fashioned term and material. However, as I wore it for the first time, I had changed my mind about my preconceiving opinion. Since this piece is black, I will be able to pair it with pretty much anything this fall. It keeps me warm on those around 10 degrees C days. It feels light and roomy enough to wear a sweater underneath it. Now back to the Talbots story. I ended up regretting not buying the pants that day for quite some time. Therefore, I can't wait for this years winter sales and for sure will be heading to Talbots to pick me up some beautiful corduroy pants.
Today, I paired my black jacket with a Marled Forever 21 cardigan (purchased from last years winter sale), a pair of Gap streight denims, gold toned jewelry and a pair of classic grey moccasins (old). My companion for today is my all time favorite Tory Burch bag (double zip tote). I purchased this bag at the Tory Burch premium outlets for a fraction of the original price. So far it is holding up well and I think it is a stunning bag that can be paired with any outfit. The necklace is from H&M (summer 2015 collection).

|I love to combine different textures and colors into my outfits. Today I mixed gold, grey, black and denim blue colors. This outfit includes a multi-toned effect cardigan, blue real straight denim jeans, black corduroy jacket and grey moccasins.|
