HOW I WORE ONE SPECIAL TOP TWO DIFFERENT WAYS

Jeans and a pretty top, that is how I dress most of the time. I like to be comfortable, but I also want to look modern and stylish. I love shopping at Talbots, and I am not the only one.

Talbots has always been my husband’s favorite retailer. When he traveled out of town, he would always bring me back something from Talbots. Talbots carries classic and timeless clothing that always seems to be in style. I find the quality of the clothing to be great, and I can wear them for years.

This split neck shell has a gorgeous palm leaf print, and the blue lagoon color is so pretty. The top is very lightweight and 100% cotton, keeping you cool this summer. You could easily pair the top with a jacket or blazer for a dressier look or wear it by itself.

The palm print top hits me at the hips, and here is a back view for you to see the length. I am wearing a medium in the top, so I think that it runs true to size.

I decided to wear my slim ankle jeans today with the shell. These jeans fit me like a glove, and I love the Atlantic Wash color. The jeans have a slim fit and create a nice figure-flattering silhouette. I really like that the jeans have a small amount of spandex so that you can bend down in comfort. I am wearing a size 8, which is my usual size for Talbot’s jeans. So, I think the jeans run true to size.

The Gia buckle sandal in navy is a pair that I wear all of the time. These leather sandals were some that I purchased last year, and they still look almost new. These sandals are also comfortable since they have a memory foam footbed. I am wearing my usual size 9, so they run true to size.

Although the shell looked great with my slim ankle jeans, I wanted to show you how nice it would look when worn with white.

The white print is really noticeable when paired with a white bottom. White becomes the focal point of the top instead of the blue lagoon color.

The top would also look great with a pair of shorts, a skort or skirt, or a pair of skinny jeans. I’ll link some of those options below for you.

The wide-leg crop chinos are great pants for summer. This style is modern and fresh-looking, and you will find that you have a lot that you can wear with them. I like a crop pant since it shows off my shoes and gives a glimpse of ankle. These crops hit me right above the waist, so the muffin top isn’t as big of an issue as it is with some pants. I usually size up when I wear white bottoms, but since they had a wide leg, I decided to order my normal size. I am also wearing a size 8 in these crops, and they fit great.

I am wearing a pair of silver braided sandals that I also bought last year. These sandals come in gold also, but I thought that the silver looked great with the white crops. These sandals also have a memory foam footbed so that they will be comfortable. They run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9.

    Finally! A top from Talbots I actually like! (I consider Talbots too pink/green/preppy most of the time.) I like the top with the slimmer jeans. Wide-leg crops are indeed in fashion, but they can be tricky. It’s all about proportion.

      I love a lot of their clothing. It does run toward the preppy or classic styles, but I like that also.

    I live in a rural community on the coast. That’s my going to town look. A pretty blouse, jeans or drawstring pants and sandals. My working or running around look is a shirt, jeans, tennis shoes. I love that you show clothes I can wear and afford.
