Recently when I was visiting my son, dil, grandson and the newest little addition to our family, I did something I’ve been meaning to do. I finally stopped by the Talbots that I always see when I’m out and about there. I was curious to see if it would be like the Talbots stores here in the Atlanta area.
It was very similar and they were having a huge sale with almost everything 50% off. That same sale is still going on right now and you can check it out here: Talbots 50% Off (almost) Everything
I had seen this coat earlier in the spring and thought it was adorable.
The sale was really good so I decided to go for it. It was originally $149, marked down to $109.99 and 50% off that. So in the end it was $54.99. Update: It’s now on final clearance for $44! Awesome price for a coat of this quality!
I really like that the pockets are designed to function two ways: you can use the big pockets in front to hold things or you can slide your hands into the side pockets to keep them warm.
I love the gingham fabric inside, the blue, white and coral colors are so pretty together!
I especially love the inverted pleat design in back. Besides being really cute, when you sit down you don’t have to unzip or unbutton the coat because of the pleat design. That feature would really make this a great travel coat, as well.
The length is perfect, too. It completely covered my backside. lol It’s also available online and comes in two more colors, here: Raincoat with Gingham Lining
The other item I bought that day was this cute seahorse shirt. I don’t like synthetic fabrics, especially in the summer. It’s just too hot and humid here in the south to wear that type fabric, so I’m always looking for cool, cotton shirts. I love cotton because it’s so breathable.
The first thing I noticed about this shirt was how light-weight it was, light as a feather. I liked that it could be worn with the sleeves rolled up to the elbows or down full length to avoid getting sun on the arms.
The seahorse pattern is sooo cute and I love the color. I’ve really become obsessed with this Tiffany Blue/Aqua color over the last two years. It’s been gradually weaseling its way into my life and now into my wardrobe. If you’re in need of a lightweight summer shirt, this one is on sale, with an additional 50% off here: Seahorse Shirt
Some of the other pieces I love that are currently on sale are this cute cardigan, reduced from $89.50 to $34.99, available here: Cardigan Such a smart look for summer, especially for work.
Love, love, love this dress! So cute! It was originally $159.99 and is now on sale for $54.99 here: Tropical Sheath Dress
I’m eyeing this eyelet shirt. It comes in three colors and the eyelet pattern is so pretty! I love wearing tops out, as opposed to tucked in, and I like how it’s designed to be worn that way. It would be beautiful with a skirt, too. It’s on sale 50% off here: Eyelet Top
Love the colors in this nautical, sailboat dress. It’s reduced from $149 to $44.99 and is available here: Nautical Dress
Update: After I created this post, I spotted a dress I loved and drove to the Talbots near my home to see if they had it in my size. I got lucky because they had one left. It’s such a flattering fit! I love it! You’ll find it available here: Polka Dot Shirt Dress Update: This dress is now just $36!
What else am I loving these days?
I’m completely obsessed with this Dior Nail Glow Polish! I used to wear clear polish all the time and loved how it looked, but it never seemed to last very long. I heard a YouTuber raving about this Dior polish a few months ago and decided to try it. It’s not cheap but I am definitely a fan! It is by far the best clear polish I have ever used.
I love how it looks on my nails, kind of gives them the look of a French Manicure. It dries unbelievably fast and holds up really well to all the abuse I put it through each day. Again, it’s bit more expensive than what I normally pay for polish, but I absolutely love how it looks on my nails and how it lasts, so to me, it’s worth it. You can check out the reviews for it here: Dior Nail Glow
Another product that I’m loving these days by Dior is their Addict Lip Glow Balm. It revives your lips and brings out your own natural lip color, so it looks a bit different on everyone. It feels really good on the lips, not sticky, just very moisturizing. I can’t stand a sticky lipstick or lip balm. It’s has a ton of rave reviews and you can read those here: Dior Lip Glow.
I’ve been really impressed with all the Dior products I’ve been using. Do you have a favorite by them? I’m eyeing their Hydra-Gel Mirror Shine Lipstick that comes in a ton of colors. Anyone tried it, yet?
