What I Bought in the Sale & Sandals So Comfortable, I Ordered Them Twice

I couldn’t resist picking up something from the current Talbots sale since everything on the entire site is 40% off. I’m still debating on this top–I LOVE the design but I prefer all cotton and it’s a blend. It probably has enough cotton that I will love it. I may go ahead and order it today since the sale ends today. (Update: I did order it…just too pretty to pass up.) If you love this design as much as I do, you’ll find it here: Beautiful Seaside Blue Top.


Love the colors in this summery tee! This is totally giving me beachy vibes!  It’s also 40% off and I ended up ordering it, as well. You’ll find it on sale here: Summer Tee.


I had to get this green and white top. Bright summer greens are my favorite and I love how this looks with white pants/jeans. It should be great with my white shorts, too. It’s on sale, as is everything I’m sharing today–the sale appears once it’s in the cart. You’ll find it here: Green and White Striped Tee.


My favorite white jeans for summer are Talbots white jeggings. I resisted buying jeggings for many years thinking they were only for younger folks. I was so wrong! They are incredibly comfortable and somehow magically have a slimming effect, especially when paired with a longer top or tunic-style shirt. I always buy the “curvy” fit, otherwise, I have issues with the waist gaping out on jeans. The curvy fit is available here: Curvy Fit Jeggings. If you don’t normally have issues with the waist gaping out in back on your jeans, you’ll find the regular fit here: Regular Fit Jeggings.

I love this cute brooch that’s also on sale. There’s also an adorable crab holding onto a pearl, too–so look for him if you check out the jewelry. 🙂 You’ll find this sailboat brooch on sale here: Sailboat Brooch.


If you’ve been reading BNOTP for a while, you know I love my Ecco Yukon Sandals and pretty much live in them during the summer months. I wanted to try something different this summer and took a chance on these. Oh my Gosh–I LOVE them! I liked them so much after wearing them non-stop for 3-4 days, I ordered a second pair in a different color–those should arrive on Wednesday.



Just like the Ecco sandals that I love so much, these are fully adjustable all over. In fact, they are even more adjustable. You can adjust the width, the back, pretty much everywhere. I also love that they aren’t too squishy feeling when you walk. I don’t like sandals that have squishy, super-soft soles/bottoms because I always feel like I’m rocking and rolling in those–they can feel so unstable. These are not like that, they are the perfect amount of cushiness and I feel completely stable while wearing them.


When I first put mine on, I had the straps a bit too loose. I tightened them up and they are perfect. I love how stable I feel wearing these and they are so, so comfortable, I could stand in them for hours! I wore them recently when I was making so many trips back and forth moving allll the dishes inside. Definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a comfortable, stylish summer sandal. They are also very reasonably priced–love that! Sizing-wise, I took my standard Size 7 in these, so if you order these, just go with your normal size and they should be fine. Can’t wait to get my second pair. You’ll find these available here: Awesome Sandals.

  1. Susan, buy the top! I bought it in a blue/white pin stripe when it was just 30% off and I LOVE it. The micro modal juat helps it keep its shape, drape & softness. Mine has a beaded collar that really makes it feel special, yet it’s still casual. Talbot’s clothes always make me feel well dressed.

    • So it doesn’t cling to the body? I had a similar Talbots shirt that was all cotton that I adored–got tons of compliments every time I wore it. Unfortunately, when I visited family a few weeks ago, I caught the side slit on that metal thing that sticks out of the frame of doors and it ripped horizontally. I tried to find it again on eBay but could only find it in a small and I needed medium in that particular shirt. This one reminds me of it a lot with the lace bib…just a different color. Thanks for that info about it. I love the color!

    • Okay, I went ahead and bought it. 🙂 Thanks, Rita!

  2. I love the elbow length sleeves on the green and white top. I wish they offered more elbow length sleeves since I try to hide my upper arms.
