*Summer's First Sale* at Talbots Plus a Real Life Pic of the Venetian-Print Skirt

Happy Friday my Dear Readers! I hope you're having a great day and looking forward to the weekend! This week has been a busy one for me with doctor appointments, errands, and playdates for the boys, plus I'm in the process of getting us all ready to head over to the beach condo for another week...thus the lack of posts the past couple of days, and for that you have my sincerest apologies. Thank you for continuing to follow and check back in on a regular/daily basis...I truly appreciate you all! :)

For those of you shopping Talbots or even contemplating giving them a try, they are now having their *Summer's First Sale*, which includes plenty of beautiful pieces and markdowns, plus the code FREE100 will get you Free Shipping on a purchase of $100+.

Here are a handful of pretties:

Ruffled Polo. This one comes in 9 yummy colors and is part of an additional promotion of Buy One, Get One 50% off.

The other items included in this particular offer are:

Some pretties that are not included in the Buy One, Get One 50% off, but still amazing deals are:
Ruffled Cardigan. This is the one the model has on in the above email pic.

*The Charming Cardigan. This one appears to be similar to the Jackie Cardigan at J.Crew, so if you're looking for an alternative...this could be it.
*Wrinkle Resistant Shirt. A crisp button-down is a great staple to have in your wardrobe.
*Irish Linen Big Shirt. I love this as an alternative to a cardigan for *throwing on* over a tank, tee, or dress.

Embroidered Blouse. Pretty, pretty, pretty and a nice alternative to the this one at J.Crew.

*Ruffled Blouse, which also comes in Paisley, Plaid, and Dots.

*Venetian-Print Skirt. This one is really lovely IRL. Here's a Polyvore I styled a while ago that features it:

Are you planning on taking advantage of the *Summer's First Sale*? Have you already done some shopping at Talbots recently? Please feel free to share...

Have a beautiful and blessed day!


  1. I'm heading over in that direction today for some much needed shopping therapy...hope the sale is as good in the stores as online! I love the ballet neck tee and tank, can't wait, thanks.

  2. Have fun Sue! Let me know what you find! :)

  3. I have the butterfly tote and the garden scarf that I got about a month ago at the same sale prices they have online now. I really like them both. The bag is esp. great:)

  4. I have a little trinket from Marrakech for you!

    Drop me your address - my contact email is on my site.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. ohhh, I love Talbots. I am gaga over their new lemon line! Thanks for the tip!

  6. I'm going to Talbots today. I've wanted the little orange bead charm bracelet for a while, and I look forward to seeing what is on sale.

  7. No more summer sales for me. I'm gearing up (aka saving) for Fall. Enjoy the beach! We finally have a warm, sunny day so we we'll prune roses and work in the yard all weekend, which is long overdue.

  8. Hi Ladies! Thank you all so much for stopping by! I wanted to let you know that I updated the post with a real life pic of me in the Venetian-print skirt if you're interested in seeing the skirt on. :)

    Summer: I love the tote and scarf...congrats on getting them at such great prices! :)

    Tabitha: Thank you! I'll email you in a few minutes. :)

    You're welcome Peggy! :)

    Hexicon: Have fun! I hope you get your bracelet! :)

    Thank you Julie! The boys are really looking forward to going back over to the beach, so they are super excited. :)

    Have a great weekend everyone!

  9. Have a great trip, and I hope you get to finish Drums of Autumn! (I thought that one started slowly but got lots better as it went along.) I'm about to start A Breath of Snow and hard to put these books down!

  10. I was at that mall today, visited J. Crew and Anthro. Talbots unfortunately once again disappointed since nothing in the store fit me. Luckily I feel like I have all the spring and summer items I need, including some great pieces from last year that I was looking forward to wearing again.

    FFM, that Venetian skirt looks fabulous on you!

  11. Love that skirt! gorgeous - simply gorgeous on you!

  12. Oooh, I really love the IRL pic of the Venetian skirt. It was the main item that caught my eye at Talbots, but I haven't tried it on. Thanks for the pic!

    BTW, I looooved the Outlander series. I'm re-reading it all before I read the latest one, since it was a long time ago. Once you finish that series, I highly recommend Sara Donati's Wilderness series.

  13. As always, thanks for the blog love! Do tell, which goodies did you end up taking home?
