The 4th of July may be behind us, but I guess I’m still feeling the red, white & blue. You’ll see what I mean as soon as you get to my second look.
Today I’m styling two classic summer outfits with Talbots, and they’ve extended their Summer Cyber Celebration one more day! That means you can save 50% off site-wide, and shipping is free with no minimum. (Discount will appear in shopping bag.)
You all know that I have a love/hate relationship with dresses, but this eyelet tiered midi dress was calling my name as soon as I saw it on the Talbots website.
The top is flattering with bra-friendly straps, and it has one of those swishy skirts that is so feminine and fun.
The fabric is a soft and comfy jersey knit, and it can be washed and dried — so easy! This is the perfect dress for church on Sundays, al fresco dining this summer, or even just throwing on with flip flops when you’re running errands around town and want to feel extra pretty. Why not?
This dress runs true to size; I have the small. The best thing about wearing a dress is, it’s one and done. Pair it with neutral sandals and a straw tote for an effortless summer look.
My second outfit is a bit more conservative, and it’s definitely better suited for milder summer weather — not the heatwave we’ve been having. But if you need something for the office, or you just like a little more coverage, this slub cotton v-neck sweater is absolutely gorgeous.
It has such pretty detail at the neckline, and I love the marled knit in this fresh Biscayne blue. I also appreciate the slender line of the 3/4-length sleeves; they’re very flattering. The side slit detail at the hem is a nice touch.
This sweater is 100% cotton, which can be hard to find these days. I love how soft and breathable it is. It’s machine washable, but you’ll want to be sure to lay it out to dry.
I paired this sweater with these classic white ankle pants. They have a flat front with a size zip, so there’s no extra bulk, and they recently updated this staple in the Talbots lineup with a modern higher rise to keep you looking sleek and smooth through the middle.
The slit hem is a nice detail, and they keep this look crisp and fresh. These pants run true to size, and they also come in petite sizes and a curvy fit as well.
Both of these looks have that modern classic style that Talbots is known for, and I always know I can depend on them for quality and consistency.
