An Epic End-of-Summer Sale-on-Sale–So Many Beautiful Pieces!

I love this time of year because this is when all the best summer sales start popping up. Talbots is doing it again–they have a great 25% off sale going, then on top of that, they are giving 50% off the sale prices! I have several things in my cart right now and I am shocked by how great the pricing is coming out. You see the true sale price once the item is in the cart…and it’s really good!

One of the items in my cart is this beautiful linen dress. I absolutely love wearing linen during our hot, muggy summers and this dress is so beautifully tailored! It looks like a dress you would come across in an exclusive, high-end boutique with its elegant, pintuck design. I love it! It’s currently on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Linen Dress with Beautiful Pintuck Design.


Another beautiful dress for summer…love the eyelet design! It looks incredibly cool, doesn’t it? It’s currently on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Eyelet Dress.

White Eyelet Dress


As I often mention, I love and wear a lot of cotton and linen during the summer months since those fabrics are so much cooler than synthetic fabrics. I also love the way cotton tops don’t cling to the body, so I find them a lot more flattering, in addition to being so much cooler. This beautiful aqua, green and white top is calling my name. I love the colors, they are so perfect for summer! This top is on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Aqua and White Plaid Top.


Here’s another gorgeous take on this color combination! Aqua and green are really popular for summer and I love that Talbots has so many pieces available in this color combination. It’s definitely a favorite of mine! I love long-sleeve cotton tops like this because if you’re out in direct sun, you can roll down the sleeves for protection, but whenever you like, you can roll them up. I love that rolled-up look and often wear my long-sleeve linen tops like this. This top is on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Green and White Top for Summer.


This top is so pretty and feminine with its ruffled collar and eyelet sleeves. It would be appropriate for both a dressy or casual setting. It’s on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Eyelet Trim Top.


I love a square neck top, I find those to be so flattering. This top is another lightweight, flowy, cotton top that’s not going to cling to the body, the last thing you want on hot, sticky days. I love the square neck and find that to be incredibly flattering. It’s currently on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Light Summer Top with Square Neck.


If you love a shell top, this has to be one of the prettiest I’ve seen. The embrodiery around the top and down the front is beautiful! It’s on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Embroidered Shell.


I had a hard time choosing which color to share this top in because it’s available in so many pretty colors including three shades of pink, three shades of blue, black, white, and marigold. I really love the beautiful, crocheted detail around the top. This is one of the reasons I love shopping in Talbots so much–their clothes often have these inique details that really make a piece extra special. I am all about the details!  You’ll find this top in 9 colors and on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Top with Crochet Trim.


So you know I’m always raving about Talbots linen, tunic-style tops! There’s just so much to love about these shirts, including how beautifully they drape the body. They come down nice and long in the back which I find to be very flattering! Linen is so breathable…love it for summer!

Best Linen Shirts, the perfect linen shirt for summer


These tunics literally saved my life when I was traveling across Egypt in 500-degree weather every day. I was born and raised here in the deep south so I’m petty used to hot weather, but Egypt was the hottest I’ve ever been in my entire life! It was brutal and these lightweight, flowy linen tops were a true blessing! I’m wearing one of these shirts in the photo on the sidebar. While in Egypt, I could roll down my sleeves for protection when I was in the blazing sun–which actually helped keep me feel cooler since it got the sun off my skin. Then, I’d roll them back up when I was in the shade. I just added the beautiful aqua-colored one on the far left this spring.

It’s currently reduced a lot–on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Linen Tunic.

Aqua Linen Top for Summer


If you love sundresses during the summer, but like a light, cardigan for when shopping or dining inside cool restaurants and stores, this cardigan would be beautiful over a sundress or any sleeveless top. It’s on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Knit Cardigan.


These next two cardigans would transition into cooler fall weather nicely. Plus, they are nice and long for a bit more coverage in back. This cardigan, available in several colors, is on sale for 25% off with another 50% off here: Linen Cardigan.


Here’s another beautiful cardigan that would work well for summer but would transition well into fall. It’s available in several colors and ison sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Long Cardigan.


I am smitten with these pretty gingham slacks! I love gingham and over the years I have discovered that small prints like this are very flattering. On me, they seem to make me look one or two sizes smaller. It’s the magic of the small print, I guess.


I especially love the button detail on the leg! Again, Talbots knocks it out of the park with these special details! These slacks are currently on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Gingham Pants.


Okay, you never see this girl sharing bathing suits but I had to share these! I never look at bathing suits since I don’t gravitate toward pools/water, but this has to be the most flattering way to hit the beach. I love all the coverage this set offers, yet it’s totally designed for swimming. How beautiful is this! I want to get it to just lounge around in! Ha! You’ll find the Tankini Top on sale on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Tankini Top.  The matching swim skirt is available here: Swim Skirt.


They even have a matching cover-up! I love this whole set! The cover up is on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Beautiful Cover-up.


Here’s another beautiful design that’s also on sale. You’ll find the pretty tankini top on sale 25% off with another 50% off here: Tankini Top. The matching swim skirt is on sale with an additional 50% off here: Swim Skirt.


I don’t think I’ve ever seen an end-of-the-season sell with so many things that I love! Happy sale shopping! See you tomorrow for Tablescape Thursday!

  1. Just ordered the tankini, skirt and cover up! Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to get it to see how it looks. Love all your suggestions.

  2. Oooh….such pretty things! Thanks for sharing – love the dresses. And thanks for the reply about your microwave. We have always had GE microwaves – good and bad. Will look for future posts about your new one! Have fun shopping !

    • I love the new microwave, except it arrived with a big dent on the side. They installed it so I can use it for now, but their going to bring out a new one. Amana is def the way to go, I think!

    I have one of the linen tunic tops in light blue and I love it so much I ordered another today in the aqua color. It is nice to be able to cover my arms, either long-sleeved or rolled up to 3/4 -sleeve without being too hot! I appreciate the sleeves in hyper air-conditioned places, too. It is a great sale, and I must have seen 100 items that I liked! I had to calm down and exercise some self -control!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
