What I Purchased at the Summer Style Event, Got Some Great Deals

A while back I ordered two pairs of jeggings from Talbots, one in the regular fit and one in the curvy fit. I love their curvy fit in their slim ankle jeans. When the jeggings arrived, I found the legs of the “curvy” fit jeggings were a bit baggier than I prefer.

I have a Talbots very close to my home so it’s convenient to return an item when it doesn’t fit as I wish. Today when I headed out the door, I was wearing this Lilly Pulitzer long-sleeve Etta top that has quickly become a favorite. It was chilly this morning so long sleeves were perfect, although I was ready to change to a short sleeve shirt by afternoon.

Macaw Blue, Lilly Pulitzer Etta Shirt


Someone recently asked in the comment how low the Lilly Pulitzer Etta v-neck shirts come down. Here’s how this one looked on me today when I was about to start trying on clothes in Talbots. Not sure if you can see but the v-neck doesn’t come down too low–it’s just right.


The Talbot’s jeggings I’m wearing in the photo are the regular fit…not the curvy fit. I ordered them earlier this spring and they are again on sale here: Jeggings. (For reference, I’m 5’4″ and I’m wearing a size Small in the Lilly Etta top and a size 8 in the non-curvy fit jeggings.) I do like their “curvy” fit for regular jeans but for jeggings, the regular, non-curvy fit are my favorite.


The sandals I’m wearing are my all-time favorite for travel or when I’m out shopping and on my feet a lot. They have great arch support and are the most comfortable sandals I’ve ever worn. They are especially great if you have problem feet since they are adjustable in several ways. You’ll find them in a bunch of different colors here: My Favorite Sandals for Travel and Shopping.


Currently, Talbots is having a summer event so everything is 30% off. While in Talbots, I saw this huge picture right above the desk area where you check out. I love their linen tunics and the pretty colors of this one caught my eye. I really like the button detail on the side of this one. They didn’t have it in stock in my size, but they placed an order for me. (This top is currently on sale here: Linen Tunic.)


Remember this adorable gingham raincoat I shared a few weeks ago?


It was in stock and it was so cute when I tried it on. It will be perfect for cooler, rainy days. Doubt I’ll get to wear it this spring but it will be nice to pull out next spring. It’s on sale here: Gingham Rain Jacket.


Here’s how it looks on. My fashion life has been greatly simplified over the years. For summer I pretty much live in either white shorts with bright tops or white pants with bright tops. Since I’m so pale, I always look better with color around my face. With white pants and white shorts, I can wear pretty much any top I wish so it makes it really easy to dress each day. (The sandals I’m wearing are available here: Sandals. I have them in three colors and they are super comfortable.)


I also purchased this maxi dress today. I loved how soft it felt. It’s all cotton, even the lining is cotton, so it’s light, airy, and perfect for summer.


I normally wear a size 6 in Talbots tops and that was the size I took in this dress. So whatever size top you normally wear is probably the size you would take in this dress. If you’re sometimes between sizes, you may want to go up one size.


It wasn’t until I got home that I realized you can actually adjust the gathering at the top. I thought the tie was just decorative, but it’s actually functional.


The waist is also adjustable…good for when dining out! lol


This dress is currently on sale 30% off here: Maxi Dress for Summer.  (Sale price appears in cart.)


I was able to see these sandals in person and try them on in a slightly larger size than I normally wear. They were really pretty and comfortable so an order was placed for those in my size. They could easily go with pants or with a dress…definitely can be dressed up or worn casually. You’ll find them on sale and in 8 colors here: Sandals. I would also like to purchase them in the golden brown color, too.


So that was my sale shopping for today. You’ll find the Summer Sale Event here: Summer Sale Event. Everything is 30% off so look for that once your item is in your cart. Happy spring shopping!
