Happy August 1, friends! I want to start off this new month with a post about my essential travel wardrobe from Talbots.
It turns out that Talbots travel essentials were the ones I wore most often and worked best for layering.
There were two days on this July Alaskan cruise that I was not prepared for….one excessive heat day in Seattle, and one very cold, wet day at the Medenhall Glacier.
The other days I fluctuated between levels of cold…that is why the Talbots layers became my most worn pieces.
Here is a little more about my essential travel wardrobe from Talbots…..
MY ESSENTIAL TRAVEL WARDROBE FROM TALBOTS: NAVY
Navy has become my go-to neutral, and was the foundation for many of my looks during this Alaskan Cruise.
When I wear pieces often, then I can easily call them essential to my travel wardrobe.
I was so thankful I had these pants!
I began this day cold, so I wore the Mockneck Jacket (still on sale) over the jogger pants, and a Zenergy top from Chico’s last year, which I also wore on my Cabo trip.
After breakfast though weather warmed up in Victoria, so I switched the jacket for a lightweight navy Quilted Vest…(also on sale, but not in navy.)
I like this vest, still on sale and it would go with my navy….Quilted Vest – Medallion.
In the very top picture, I wore the vest one day with one of the long sleeve knit St. John’s Bay Womens V Neck from JCP top in Oregano.
We have discussed these tops before…I have several colors and love this essential travel wardrobe piece….it is on sale for $13.60 with the code 4SAVINGS and comes in 23 colors and petite sizes.
I also wore this top with the pants during a travel day onboard the ship.
When we walked outside, I wore the navy best over it.
This is the Cozy Crush Half Zip Pullover In Tropical Fronds. A little out of my best colors, but worked well with all of the essential travel wardrobe pieces.
These items in the sale are at great prices!
MY ESSENTIAL TRAVEL WARDROBE FROM TALBOTS: GREAT JACKET
Here is another essential travel wardrobe piece I am so glad I found at Talbots in the sale.
I am wearing the Cropped Field Jacket in Spring Moss…and there are a few left on sale.
On this day, I styled it with the Solid Pima Bateau Neck Tee in Golden Honey (also in the sale), and with the same jogger pants.
On this day, we went into Skagway, AK….and for me…it was cold. Mr. B had a jacket in his backpack.
I really like my Talbots jacket and it is a perfect weight for our light fall and winter seasons in San Antonio.
I believe I will wear it often; and, this is one of the reasons I shop summer sales for fall and winter where I live.
Rarely do I need a heavy piece of warmth down here.
I did, however, wish I had a sweater or two on this journey for the colder days. I experienced a few shivers and had to purchase gloves.
There are still some great looking garments in the Talbots sale…here are a few you might want to see….
I send a big THANK YOU to Talbots for supplying essential travel pieces that served me well on my July Alaskan adventure.
I will have more clothing to discuss with you in posts to come…but wanted to begin with the essentials.
Thanks for stopping by on your first day of the month…tomorrow is Today’s News…and then back to posts from the trip…now, remember (no matter the weather) to always ….
