Talbots Friends And Family Try On Haul

Is there anything better than finding the clothing you love on sale??? Maybe a few things would be better, but the list would be short. Lol! I ran into Talbots last weekend and did a try on haul. I asked the lady at the counter if any sales were going on, and she told me about the Friends and Family sale, where you will enjoy 30% off your entire purchase! So, I left empty-handed, but I racked up once the sale went live. Haha! I’m nobody’s dummy!

This entire outfit was what I was the most interested in. As soon as I saw the crop pants, I fell head over heels for them. The jacket was icing on the cake! This outfit screams summer to me, and it is so versatile. You’ll see more about that later in this post.

When doing a try-on haul in the stores, I take a photo of the tag on the item so I can look it up on the website. I was shocked when I saw the photo of the blazer and pants on the website because the stripes looked smaller and lighter. This is correct on how the outfit looks.

I paired the suit with a sleeveless, no-iron button-up shirt. The shirt is a basic essential for summer and can be worn with anything. It is easy to dress up or down and layers wonderfully under a jacket or cardigan.

I kept on the shirt and changed into a pair of blue wide-crop pants. I love this color, and it will go with a lot of items this summer. This blue color looks great with pink, green, yellow, orange, and so on.

Well, well, well…look how nicely the blue crop pants go with the striped linen blend blazer. I love it when you can mix and match clothing because it extends your wardrobe.

I loved this satin shell with the crop pants, but I ordered the sleeveless non-iron perfect shirt in the same print instead. The non-iron shirt is more casual, and I think I would get more wear from it.

However, if you want something somewhat dressier, this satin shell is perfect. It would also look great with all the colors I mentioned above.

Switching out the satin shell, I added a Madras Plaid one that still has the ruffle at the neckline but looks more casual. I think Madras Plaid is another print that screams summer!

Here is what the shell looks like when worn with white. Everyone loves longer shorts, and these are 9″ long for misses and 7 1/2″ long for Petites. These shorts are also available in two other denim washes; you can find them here.

Hmmm, have you seen this top before? Lol! The shorts would also look great with the white sleeveless shell and linen blazer. One of my favorite things to wear is a column of color and a blazer or cardigan. That is such a flattering silhouette because it tricks the eye into thinking you are taller and thinner than you are.

How about a classic look with the shorts? I layered the sleeveless shirt under a linen blend vest for a preppy look. You can wear the vest without a shirt, but I wanted to see how it looked with a collar.

Here is how the vest looks with wide-leg trouser jeans. The wide leg looks great with a slim silhouette, as in the vest.

LINEN BLEND SLUB VEST (Size 14 – Needed a 10)

The funny thing was I grabbed the wrong size. I knew the vest was way too big for me, but I didn’t bother to get another one since this was the last outfit I was trying on. Instead, I’m holding the vest in the back to show you how it is supposed to fit. Lol! I already have this vest in tan, and a size 10 fits me great.

I hope you enjoyed this Talbots Friends and Family Try On Haul! I’ll link a few more items I liked but didn’t see in the store.
