I can almost smell the smoke from the fire pit and taste the apple cider. Fall is officially here and cooler days are fast approaching. It’s time for laughing around an open fire with friends at the end of the day. Or maybe you enjoy visiting a vineyard and winery in the autumn, listening to live music while you enjoy the fruit of the vine. And it’s a great time for alfresco dining or even picnics in the park. So today I’m teaming up with Talbots and styling cords for favorite fall outings.

SALE ALERT: Good news! Just today (October 5, 2023) through Sunday, October 8, you’ll get 30% off your entire purchase at Talbots.
I have had an ongoing love affair with Talbots cords for years. I prefer their stretch corduroy straight leg pants, but they also have stretch corduroy jeggings, which look great worn with knee high boots. And this year Talbots introduced the stretch corduroy flare leg pants, and they’ve been selling fast! All three styles come in misses, petite and plus sizes, too.
I’m wearing the stretch corduroy straight leg pants in almond buff and I think they are the most perfect shade of camel brown. It will be so easy to incorporate these into my wardrobe for fall and winter. The stretch corduroy straight leg pants fit perfectly over the shaft of my Tish Chelsea boots. Mine are from several seasons ago, but Talbots has the same style this year with a nice updated taller shaft. These really are my favorite fall and winter everyday boots, perfect for outdoor activities but great for daily wear, too.
You absolutely can style your cords for favorite fall outings with sweaters and sweatshirts. Even a basic long-sleeve tee works nicely with these fall classics. But I especially enjoy wearing a denim shirt with cords. My denim button front shirt from Talbots is a real workhorse in my wardrobe in the fall. It fits true to size.
I had a belt to wear with this outfit, but I accidently left it in the car. Oops! This Havana tan leather belt would work so nicely. But really, wearing a belt is up to you. It’s quite alright to give your shirt a front tuck and leave the belt off like I did. I just think a pretty belt adds a little polish and interest to an outfit.
This is definitely a favorite fall outfit for me. I’d wear this cords and denim shirt duo to an outdoor evening gathering with friends, a fall fair at a local school, lunch with a friend or even one of mine and James’ monthly getaways to small towns in Ohio. If it got cold, I’d add this fun animal print quilted barn jacket. Now that just sounds appropriate, doesn’t it?
By the way, Talbots cords come in so many great colors. You can easily create outfits with them from fall through winter. Which cords will you wear this year for favorite fall outings? The straight leg, jeggings or flare leg pants? So hard to decide! But they’re all 30% off right now.

Blessed for My Day
It’s not always easy to stick to your convictions. If you have a biblical worldview, undoubtedly you have had awkward moments in this current culture. Sometimes it can feel like you are swimming upstream while everyone around you is headed the opposite direction.
But do not be discouraged when you are out of step with the culture. Instead, stay the course. Cling to the truth. Trust God to give you the strength and the grace to live a godly life in this present age. And lean into Him when you face persecution because of your biblical choices.
“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in this same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. ~ Matthew 5:11-12
