The older I get, the more I find that comfort is a strong factor in the clothes I choose to buy & wear on a regular basis. When I was in my twenties, I paid much less attention to how things felt and focused more on how they looked. But after having kids, my perspective changed quite a bit & now I simply won’t purchase something if it doesn’t feel good or isn’t easy to move around in.
This dress is a perfect example of a piece that is comfortable to wear, but still looks chic. It also comes in 3 other colors & I just love the eyelet sleeve detail. The longer length is also nice because you don’t have to worry about it being too short when you sit down or bend over to tend to your kids (or dog!). In terms of sizing, I found this to have a fairly generous fit, so I’d recommend sizing down.
Talbots just launched their Friends & Family Sale, where you’ll get 30% off your entire purchase + 40% off 1 full-price item with code FRIENDS40. Many of you have raved about the quality of their pieces and I have to agree. Though their full-price styles are a bit spendy, I’ve found the key is to take advantage of their sales, so this is a great time to shop & save!
They have so many cute straw bags for summer – I was drawn to the round shape of this one, which also has a longer removable strap so you can wear it as a crossbody. More styles to check out: this colorblock tote, this bucket satchel & this pom pom tote.
Other items I’m loving include this crochet cover-up (obsessed!), these linen shorts (love the pom pom detail), this wrap skirt (so on-trend right now) & these espadrille wedges (in nude). See more of my favorites below!
