You’ve probably figured out by now that I do a lot of my shopping at Talbots. So, while I’m shopping more and more with other retailers, I have to give you the scoop on Talbots’ current Signs of Summer Friends & Family 30% Off Sale. I’ve culled the website and picked out my favorites finds from the new arrivals, and today I’m sharing those with you. You’ll find the links to each of the items below the graphics, and then there’s a shopping widget with all of my picks at the bottom of the post.
First up, dresses, etc.
I like the comfort and ease of the stripe knit dress and the vibrant colors of the fit and flare dress. I need a new wide brim sun hat, so I’m strongly considering this one.
- Multicolor Stripe Self-Belt Knit Dress 2. Retro Paisley Fit and Flare Dress /3. Open Stitch Dress Shrug in island turquoise / 4. Paper Straw Wide Brim Sun Hat
Pants and Shorts are next
I’ve got the denim shorts in the plain denim, but I think this red is fantastic. I already own a different pair of seersucker shorts, but I thought you might like these. I tried on the gingham girlfriend chinos and they are adorable on. And I’m always interested in trying linen, although I haven’t taken the plunge yet. Do you like to wear linen in the summer?
- 7″ Colored Denim Shorts in Sunset Orange / 2. 10 1/2″ Pinstripe Perfect Short / 3. Girlfriend Chino – Gingham / 4. Stripe Linen Wide-Leg Pant in Blue and White
Let’s Look at Shoes
I own the leather capri sandals in black and find them very comfortable and flattering. And I have the Izzy Denim Espadrilles. They’re pretty comfortable and I believe they will become even easier on the feet with a little more wear. I’ve not tried the others on, but I love the styles and colors.
- Capri Leather Sandals / 2. Lindsey Woven Espadrille Wedges / 3. Izzy Espadrilles / 4. Keri Double Strap Sandal – Soft Napa
Can you tell I have a thing for straw purses? I didn’t even realize that was all I had selected until I started writing this up! Oh well. What can I say? Summer just means straw handbags to me. I think it’s because I remember my mom often using straw purses during the summer months. I haven’t yet purchased any of these pictured here, but I’m probably going to choose one of them!
- Wicker Shoulder Bag / 2. Crochet Straw Circle Crossbody Bag / 3. Woven Turn-Lock Tote / 4. Woven Crossbody Bag – White
And a Few More Accessories
In my last post about dressing so that we don’t look old and frumpy I mentioned trying out some delicate and dainty jewelry. This is my attempt at that! Plus I love these readers and sunglasses. I’m probably going to order the readers…because two more pair bit the dust today!
- Delicate Mixed Beads Necklace / 2. Hammered Bangle / 3. Mardi Gras Tassel Necklace / 4. Cape Cod Readers / 5. Nautical Sailor Statement Necklace / 6. Park Sunglasses
Do you like to shop Talbots? Let me know because obviously I shop there a lot. But I’m trying to feature items from other places that you love to shop as well. So let me know about your favorite retailers so I can provide what you like. In fact, I do have an outfit from Ann Taylor coming up and one from Loft as well. But meanwhile, you might want to check out the sale at Talbots. They have lots more to choose from and it is 30% off your entire purchase and 40% off your most costly item with the code FRIENDS40.
Blessed for My Day
Do you ever tell yourself not to “get your hopes up?” I do. I think we do that because we are afraid to hope to high. But the Bible tells us hope does not disappoint, so we don’t need to fear. That is, as long as we put our hope in God. He loves us and would never get our hopes up only to dash them. If He doesn’t come through for us in the way we hoped He would, it’s only because He has something even better for us.
And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. ~ Romans 5:5
