Let’s Look – 11/9/22

Happy Wednesday! It’s a Let’s Look Wednesday! This is one of my favorite posts of the month because I’m so curious. I love to see how other people do things.

Liking up with Erika and Shay

In January, I shared how I organize for the new year.

In February, I shared what I eat in a week.

In March, I shared my high school and college favorites.

It seems I took an 8 month hiatus on the Let’s Look topics. Oops! I’m back today to share where I shop for my mom.

My mom and I have similar styles so that makes it easy. We both like classic clothes and classic cuts. For instance, when we paint our nails we both go for neutral colors. My mom tends to do a beige or nude color. I like those too.

I tend to add a little more sparkle or something big and bold with it though. Like this glitter. 🤩

What I’m trying to say is that I have the best time coming up with ideas for my mom because I generally can pick things I love and I know she’ll love them, too! There are two main places I shop for my mom.

My mom LOVES Talbots. As I get a little more mature, I love Talbots too! When the last catalog came, I called my mom to talk about it and we decided that we could buy the whole thing and be satisfied with our fall/winter wardrobe. 😂 Did we buy it all? Sadly no, but the camel and classic styles are right up our alley! Do you get the Talbots catalog? Did you swoon when you read it, too?

Lilly! I know that Lilly doesn’t surprise anyone who’s been here for a little while. My mom, my sister, and I all love Lilly! When we are shopping for Mom, my sister and I often chat to be sure we don’t double up on good stuff!

I shop at my local independent bookstore for my mom each Christmas for Jolabokaflod. I love to go to the Publisher’s Book Talks and find a totally new book for Mom.

A few years ago, I started doing stockings for my parents on Christmas and I have so much fun shopping for my mom’s stocking. I’ll shop in local boutiques and shops, on trips and vacations, and pick up little things online as I find or think of them.

My mom is the best and so fun to shop for!! Where do you shop for your mom??

Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

    I love the idea of having Christmas stockings for parents! Thank you for the inspiration. I like to buy my mom and dad little things that they can use up. When I lived in California, it was usually local products like chocolates or jam. Now that I’m back in Florida, I’ll probably switch it up a bit.

    I think I did the same thing! I started the year with Let’s Look and then took a huge, long break before joining in again. LOL My mom and I are a lot alike too so I typically know that if I like it she’ll like it. We both shop Talbots and were thrilled to hit a huge summer sale one year when we were outlet shopping; EVERYTHING in the store was 19.99 or less!

    Such a fun post with so many great ideas! I love picking up odds and ends for my mom’s stocking. My mom and I aren’t similar in style, but she will give me a list which is helpful
