Pull-up Jeggings, Beachy Sweaters, Eyelet Tops and Beautiful Summer Dresses

We are really seeing the warmer temps now and it’s got me thinking more about my summer wardrobe. I love this time of year when we can finally tuck away some of our heavy sweaters and start wearing lighter, more carefree prints. I was thinking about this yesterday, how “happy” the spring/summer patterns and prints are, compared to fall and winter. I wondered what it would be like to live someplace where it stayed warm all year long and I only needed a wardrobe with nothing but bright, happy summer prints. As much as I dislike cold weather, I would really miss the beautiful, rich colors we see in fall/winter clothing, the soft, warm sweaters, and the cozy scarves. I really do like living where the weather necessitates a 4-season wardrobe. Do you live where you have a need for clothes that suit all four seasons?

There are so many pretty spring clothes on sale right now, seems like so many shops are having spring/summer sales. I love this floral wrap dress that’s currently on sale for around for 1/3 off with the code WEARNOW . That’s an awesome sale! It’s available here: Floral Wrap Dress.


Love these fun spring/summer boots, they are perfect for our rainy days. I can see wearing them with blue or white jeans! They would even be cute with the white shorts I live in during the summer. They are currently on sale here: Spring/Summer Rain Boots.


I have this lobster sweater in my cart, right now. It’s currently on sale here: Lobster Sweater. It would be perfect for an evening walk along the beach this time of year. Def giving me beach vacation vibes! You can see all the embroidered and a special accented sweaters they currently have on sale here: Sweaters.


I have a thing for hooded sweaters and sweatshirts. That started a few winters back when I discovered how much warmer they were around my neck than regular, non-hooded sweaters. This one is currently on sale here: Hooded Sweatshirt.


Talbots has a big “Friends and Family Event” going on right now that’s 30% off your entire purchase when you checkout using your Talbots card. I think the preview day for cardholders ends today. I guess the sale opens up to everyone starting tomorrow. Talbots is the only “store” card I currently use because I love getting free shipping.


I keep going back to this beautiful toile shirt! It just looks so elegant and sophisticated for when you want to look a bit more polished. I love how it looks with white pants! It’s available here: Etched Toile Shirt.


This beautiful eyelet shirt comes in both blue and white. I love, love, love the square neck and scalloped hem! I’m not sure why but I always find this style neckline so flattering on. It’s available on sale here: Eyelet Top. (Sale price should appear once it’s in the cart.)


Another super cute dress! This one is on sale here: Embroidered Linen Dress.


Are you a chinos fan? These are so cute for summer! I love how they look rolled up. They are available here: Relaxed Chinos.


When I’m not wearing shorts or light dresses in the summer, I’m usually in white pants or white jeans. I’ve been super tempted to try these Pull-On Jeggings. A friend of mine bought some recently and she loves them! I wear a lot of long tops and I usually wear them out, not tucked in, so this would be perfect for that. These pants would also be perfect to wear with my Lilly Pulitzer tops that get holes in them if worn with regular pants that have a button. (See that post here: How I’m Preventing Additional Holes in my Lilly Pulitzer Shirts.)


I think I’m going to try these, they look incredibly comfortable with that relaxed waist! You’ll find them in white, blue, and black here: Pull-on Jeggings.


Happy Spring Shopping!

See you tomorrow for Tablescape Thursday!

  1. Funny, I was thinking this morning that I hate to give up my soft, cozy sweaters and winter clothes as the weather gets warmer. I’m always happy to get them out again in the fall.

    • I know, me too! Maybe we can just turn the a/c down a bit when we are in the mood for those cozy sweaters. It was chilly here this morning, the heat was actually running when I woke up, so I got to snuggle up in my sweaters and Uggs this morning.

  2. Pretty dress! I’ve been going through a dress phase for the last year. I have a lot of talbots clothes, but love the boho maxi dresses from Free People and Anthropologie. It’s like wearing a nightgown, so I will actually get dressed now, Ha Ha. A lot of them have spaghetti straps, so wearing them over tee shirts and cute blouses, like that nice eyelet one above. Wearing the shorter and midi dresses over jeans.

  3. These are all cute options. I love that square neck top too. So pretty in the blue. I love the pull on jeggings. They are so comfortable. I also have that style in the the Bermuda shorts. Love them!

    • Thanks for letting me know, Lynda! I’ve got to get some, everyone I know who has them, loves them. I didn’t know that waist was available in shorts, too…good to know!

  4. I have tiny holes in my Talbots tee and in a vineyard vines tee. They’ve come from Talbots metal button since I don’t have any other brand pants. So it isn’t just your Lily’s.

    • The button covers seem to help a lot. I am still wearing my Lilly shirts, despite the holes, since the shirt patterns are so busy, you can see them unless you know where they are. I used Fray Check (bought on Amazon) to keep them from getting any larger. I would love to order more if I can avoid the holes. I really want to try the pull-up jeggings to see if not having a button will stop the hole issue. I still love the Lilly shirts, they are so light and comfortable, like wearing nothing, but too expensive if they keep getting holes in them. Molly, try the silicone button covers (can find them on Amazon) on your Talbots jean buttons, I really think they help a lot!

    Such pretty finds, Susan! Most of my clothes are from the Ann Taylor and Talbots sites at great sale prices. I got the square neck top in the same print as the long royal blue flowered dress you shared at the top of your post, for 75% off the other day. I didn’t even know there was a dress version til I saw your post! I’m with you on the Talbots card – it’s great for small orders and snapping up sale items without paying shipping or trying to buy enough to meet the minimum. Lately I’ve been living in my slim ankle jeans from Talbots and even got a lilac pair on a major sale day – excited to get some white ones when the next big extra discount day hits! I also found the blue Talbots gingham sweatshirt recently for $25 – much less than the Draper James version.

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