Before we all start talking fall style with the upcoming Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, we need to check out the many summer sales! Like these everyday cardigan outfits I put together with new and older wardrobe pieces. There are incredible buys to be had and, after all, it’s still summer!
With an eye to choosing pieces that can be worn several ways–with a sweater or jacket or other fall pieces–you can be smart about purchasing pieces right now that will carry you into the next season.
The pieces highlighted here today are mostly from Talbots. Talbots was my go-to for workwear as they make quality clothing that’s a bit on the conservative side. All of their items come in Regular, Petite, and Plus, which is, well, a plus!! The sizing is very consistent which makes it easy to buy online once you nail down your sizes.
They also make cute casual pieces as well as athleisure pieces. Right now, they, like so many other brands, are selling summer clothing for 50% or more off, and new pieces at 30% off. You can’t beat that.
This pretty sweater forms the basis for these two cardigan outfits. Read on, my friends…
The Everyday Cardigan Outfits
The Sweater and Joggers
I’m a sucker for a cute cardigan and this “girlfriend style” is one that is flattering on almost anyone. The fit is just a bit looser than a fitted cardigan, with a V-neck, side slits, dropped shoulders, and a slightly below hip length. This sweater is made with a super soft cotton fabric that just feels good to wear. Mine is the Pale Jade color and it comes in four other colors, including white. This is a great basic piece for any time of year so it’s a good time to pick one up on sale.

Joggers are super popular and have been a big trend for the last couple of years. Here I’m styling my pair from the post 3 Ways to Style Jogger Pants. Good news! they are still available and on sale! The linen fabric and cute style are a good choice on day when you’d rather wear sweats but want to look a bit more polished. They come in 5 colors and are perfect for fall!
I’ve styled it first with the Hibiscus Sweater that I shared in the post, Hibiscus Print Sweater for a Pop of Color. This sweater top goes with almost anything, and I love it with the jade color.

For an early fall-ish look, I’ve styled it here with my favorite indigo gingham shirt. I love this color combo as the green really pops against the indigo plaid. This is definitely a more conservative look that is both casual and stylish. Talbots has a similar black and white gingham blouse, also on sale.
To be honest, except for a pair of Keds or slip-ons, I’ve never worn sneakers with anything but casual workout wear. Lately, however, I find myself reaching for them more and more. So I added this pair of Indigo Blue sneakers with the Talbots brand name. I love the memory foam footbed and breathable liner that make them super comfortable. They are not designed for a heavy walk or workout but are perfect for running errands or hanging around the house.
Be sure to check out some of these amazing sales. Just think of what you already have in your closet and imagine how you can restyle any new pieces as the season changes from summer to fall.
After all, it’s still summer!
