Talbot’s In Home Try-On Haul For June You’re Gonna Want To See

You know I hate going to the stores to do try-on hauls. The dressing rooms are horribly lit, the rooms are tiny, and I feel pressured to hurry up. Plus, a few sales ladies make me feel like I’m committing a crime, so I prefer to do them in the comfort of my home. I hope you enjoy today’s Talbot’s In Home Try-On Haul.

This colorful outfit is beach-ready! I don’t have a vacation coming up, but I can still be ready. The Modern Classic Shirt in the beautiful pool blue has Lilly Pulitzer vibes. It looks great with the white Lined Pleated Linen Shorts, but could be worn with a lot of different bottoms.

Did you notice the bright pink accents? I love cute details on my clothing!

I tucked in the shirt so you could see the Pleated Linen Shorts better. These shorts are fully lined, and that is HUGE for me. I’m wearing my usual size 8, and they fit great. Pleats add more fabric, but these shorts don’t look bulky.

Pine Organic Cotton Scoop Neck Tank (Medium) | Lined Pleated Linen Shorts (Size 8) | Hoop Earrings | Bead Stretch Bracelets | Clear 2 Strap Wedge Shoe (Size 9.5)

The great thing about white is that it can be worn with anything! Here, I added a simple Pine Organic Cotton Scoop Neck Tank, which completely changed the look of the outfit. The pine tank can be worn all year round and will look great layered in the fall. I was skeptical about wearing a medium, but I think it fits great without showing too many lumps or bumps.

Pine Organic Cotton Scoop Neck Tank (Medium) | Drapey Twill Cargo Culottes (Medium) | Convertible Shell Pendant Necklace | Hoop Earrings | Bead Stretch Bracelets | Clear 2 Strap Wedge Shoe (Size 9.5)

I love a monochromatic outfit, so I added the Drapey Twill Cargo Culottes to the scoop neck tank.

These are not your normal clothes; they are chic and comfy! The culottes have a gorgeous drape to them and aren’t clingy.

They also feature cargo pockets, which are trending and popular. I’m wearing a medium, and they fit perfectly! I would wear a stretchy belt with this outfit, and probably throw on a denim jacket, and head out the door.

Olive Eyelet Embroidered Shell (Medium) | Drapey Twill Cargo Culottes (Medium) | Hoop Earrings | Bead Stretch Bracelets | Clear 2 Strap Wedge Shoe (Size 9.5)

Olive isn’t normally a color I associate with summer, but this Olive Eyelet Embroidered Shell looks summery with its palm tree print.

The top is also lined, so you can’t see through it. I love the split neck which helps to elongate your neck. The shell has nice, wide straps, so you don’t have to worry about your bra straps showing.

Olive Eyelet Embroidered Shell (Medium) | White Pintuck Flare Leg Jeans (Size 8) | Hoop Earrings | Bead Stretch Bracelets | Clear 2 Strap Wedge Shoe (Size 9.5)

Can you believe how different the shell looks when worn with the White Pintuck Flare Leg Jeans?!? The entire outfit looks brighter and lighter because the jeans brought out the white of the shell instead of the olive color.

White Pintuck Flare Leg Jeans (Size 8)

I’m a huge fan of pintucked pants. They give the illusion of a crease without the need for an iron. Do any of you still use an iron? I use a steamer for all of my clothing, so that made me wonder. The slight flare at the bottom helps to balance out your hips. This is a universally flattering style of jeans that most women can wear.

Linen Halter Fit & Flare Dress (Size 12) | Top Handle Clutch | Hoop Earrings | Bead Stretch Bracelets | Clear 2 Strap Wedge Shoe (Size 9.5)

Ooooh! This white Linen Halter Fit & Flare Dress is gorgeous! I’m busy trying to think of somewhere to wear this beautiful dress. I may have to talk Joe into a fancy date night so I can strut around in this dress. Lol!

It is as stunning from the back as it is from the front. I’m wearing a size 12, which is my usual size for dresses. It fits me great through the waist, but it is a tiny bit too big for me in the chest. I would need to do a small 1/2″ seam under each arm, but that’s an easy fix.

Of course, the dress is lined! Talbots does it right when it comes to white clothing.

  1. love the Bible verse and my fave is paisley

  2. I would not have thought of trying on the culottes, I love them. I am not a monochromatic fan, love the palm tree top with them. That dress is beautiful. I am usually not a fan of white on the bottom, I think someone I know well turned me against them….lol. The Bermudas are really cute!

  3. You look amazing in all of the outfits! I love the white shorts.

  4. Debbie Brown says:

    I love the try on at your home and your own closet. I thought the pictures turned out great and I loved all of the outfits. They were beautiful.

  5. love the olive eyelet top with the white jeans

  6. Love, love, love this try-on haul. Location and selections. Especially love the blue paisley blouse. Talbot’s is one of my favorites, but sometimes more than I want to spend these days.

    1. I love their clothing, it fits my lifestyle perfectly.

  7. loved everything you tried on, especially the pretty blue shirt!

  8. I love the try in from your closet! Talbots tends to put their models against a wall or in a corner- your free to choose anything you like.

  9. Love your closet for the try on photos!

  10. Love the olive top and white linen dress.

  11. Thank you, thank you! I’m very excited to use the gift card.

  12. I like all the white pieces and the olive palm top. I still iron. I bought the steamer you recommended. Iike but I guess I haven’t mastered a steamer because I think the iron is better at getting rid of the wrinkles especially on pants.

    1. I’m not sure if you bought the handheld steamer, or the stand alone one. The one I use for my clothing has a board with it, so you can use the steamer like an iron. I only use the handheld one when I’m traveling.

  13. Vicki King says:

    LOVE the monochromatic outfit and the white dress!

  14. Your closet looks great! Love that white dress!

  15. The olive shell top is gorgeous! The pairing with the white pants is so very classy

  16. Great try on post. Your closet works. Beautiful clothes from Talbot ‘s.

  17. Love the olive top. I would buy that in a heartbeat!

    1. White dress is absolutely beautiful and looks stunning on you, I wish I was taller like you. Pin tuck jeans are on my list to buy.

  18. Love the first outfit on you. And also the olive top and white dress. What a beautiful closet you have. I need to organize mine. Haha!

  19. Kathy Gerrity says:

    Great try on in your closet! The lighting is better, and must be more comfortable for you. I love the paisley top!

  20. I love that turquoise blouse on you, just a gorgeous summer color.

  21. sue koren says:

    Your closet is so neat!

  22. I love your style AND all the helpful details you give us!

  23. Stella Gustafson says:

    DRAPEY TWILL CARGO CULOTTES And the two tops you showed with them will end up in my cart. Like the look

  24. I love all of these pieces, and you look amazing in all of them. I love wide leg pants, so I especially like the green cargo pants. As for the not so nice sales ladies, they should appreciate you promoting their clothing. It really does make a difference in what I decide to purchase!

    1. Lynnette, most of them have no idea what I do, and probably don’t care. Lol!

  25. Fantastic outfits! Talbots is one of my favorite places to shop. I love the look of pin tuck pants, but I have a question. Can you feel that front pin tuck seam against your leg when you wear them? I’m sensitive, and don’t like to feel “things” against my skin.

    Great verse, btw. It’s my closest cousin’s son’s life verse. 🙂

    1. Carolyn, from the inside, it feels normal. I’ve never felt the pintuck pleat before.

  26. I like your closet try on! Really nice summer outfits

  27. Lighting much better in your closet. The turquoise blouse is definitely one of your colors! Love the white dress and white linen shorts.

  28. OMGOSH! Absolutely LOVE your closet w/all the drawers! May I ask who installed?? Maybe you could take some pics from other angles so I could see more!!🤞🤞

    1. Sorry, I don’t know who installed them.

  29. I’m very envious of your closet! Living in a 74 year old farmhouse, I have very little closet space.

  30. Susan Weston says:

    Love the culottes!

  31. Gina Luebke says:

    Love the pintuck pants and the white dress, gorgeous pieces!! 😍

  32. Love that first outfit! Your closet is super cute. I’m glad you’re away from those nosy karens. Shame on those rude sales ladies! Hello, free advertising?!

  33. Your closet is a much nicer place to do the try on hauls. What I can see of it looks quite nice. Love the turquoise blue top and white shorts!

  34. Prefer your try on’s done in your closet. The halter dress comes in a gorgeous teal color too.

  35. Great styles today! You look amazing in all of them, especially the white pin tuck jeans. Have a great weekend!

  36. Ginger Hiller says:

    Oh, I do iron my clothes on my mom’s old ironing board that makes a loud noise when I open and close it. I used a steamer some when I was still working in corporate America, but I prefer to iron.

  37. Ginger Hiller says:

    It looks like you have a fabulous closet! Yes, the pictures do look much brighter than when you are in the fitting room in a store. All of the items are so pretty. I complimented an older woman on her outfit in Ingles on Thursday. She said that her outfit was from Talbots and that’s where she buys most of her clothes.

  38. Roberta Schwandner says:

    I love the paisley shirt.

  39. I love the palm print top and the white jeans. You look fabulous in that outfit.

  40. The white sun dress just says summer and elegance.

  41. Tsnia! you look STUNNING in every one of these outfits! The lighting in your closet is awesome… Happy Saturday❤❤❤

  42. Patti Patterson says:

    I liked the olive clothing items very much. I thought they looked very chic for summer style. But Tania your white outfits looked fantastic on you! The palm top and white jeans were perfection.

  43. Carol Ann Jablonski says:

    You had me at paisley

  44. Jan Canapp says:

    You look fantastic in all the outfits, but I especially like the palm tree print top with the white pants. And the white dress is a stunner.

  45. Kathy Johnston says:

    Love that white dress! I was thinking that one of the raffia belts would look nice with it.

  46. Your closet try on haul worked out well! loved everything and your closet is awesome!

  47. Loved this try-on haul. All so cute, especially the green outfit and the white dress. Great photos and they all look great on you!

  48. So much better in your closet!!!

  49. Love your closet and the try ons

  50. Ok, your closet is better than fitting rooms! Way better lighting and no pressure, lol. Love the white pants and shell outfit.

  51. You look beautiful in all the clothes. Too bad the sales people make you feel bad. You are selling their clothes and you have quite a following. Stores and store clerks just aren’t what they used to be. They just don’t care and and really don’t want to help you especially if the person shopping doesn’t look rich. Very poor customer service at most clothing stores. Try on rooms are dirty too.

    1. Rory, some store are so helpful that it is almost aggravating. Lol! I guess they can’t win with us. Hahaha!

  52. I love the olive tank with the white jeans. You look fabulous in that outfit!
    And yes, I do still use an iron.

  53. The lighting in your closet is great! Love everything Talbots…usually. Not so sure those Drapey Cargo Culottes would work for me though.

  54. what a lovely haul! I particularly love the white dress and olive shell. I saw it online and have to say you wear it better and look much better than the model . talbot should hire you !!!

  55. The pics in your closet are great! Love Talbots, their summer colors are spot-on this year.

  56. Sandra Schuettinger says:

    I don’t know if you are wearing new makeup or if it is your new hairstyle but you just look stunning this past month. I am also enjoying your instagram posts.

    1. Awww, this is the sweetest comment!

  57. Love everything you shared with us today especially the palm print top and white pants. I am curious how you get into the top drawer of your stack of drawers?

    1. I have a small two step ladder that I access taller places in my house. Plus, I always put things in the top drawers that I don’t need to use very often.

  58. Can you share what bra you had on with the olive top? The back is so smooth; no visible lines! Love it!

  59. Loved today’s looks! With Virginia weather we need options!

    1. You never know from one minute to the next what the weather will do in Virginia. Lol!

  60. I am loving the olive culottes!

  61. I love the photos taken in your closet, much better lighting, and mirrors are clean/clear. Talbots has some great outfits for summer. Have a blessed week!

  62. I love the crisp white look of that dress!

  63. That was fun! Beautiful outfits!

  64. Kim Luehmann says:

    Love the green color! I feel like that could be casual or dressed up!

  65. Kim Milstead says:

    Love Talbots – heading there today! Love your style and posts! Thanks

  66. Stephanie says:

    Definitely prefer your home for a try-on haul. The photos are much clearer & you look more comfortable. Loved that palm tree shell!

  67. Great job, got the blue shirt and white shorts saved in my cart! Everything looks beautiful on you.
