Happy Monday, ladies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend with family and friends. I spent the majority of the weekend at home being lazy with my family, but we also managed to sneak in dinner at a friend’s new home and a soccer game for Carter. It was a great little weekend, and we definitely enjoyed the slower pace. The rest of November and December is full speed ahead! Lots of get-togethers with family, a couple of parties, and lots of quality family time. I LOVE this time of year.
When Talbots reached out to partner together, I wrote them back immediately asking if my mom could be featured in the post, along with me and my sister. BECAUSE MY MAMMA LOVES HER SOME TALBOTS. They loved the idea, and when I told my mom, she was over the moon!
Talbots is one of my mom’s favorite retailers, and she always looks so polished and put together, so I was so excited about the idea of featuring her! Talbots is known for their modern classic style, but what you might not know is that they are passionate about size inclusivity and feature sizes 0-24. They carry misses, petites, plus sizes, and petite plus sizes. Thank you, Talbots! And make sure you check out the gift guide at the bottom of today’s post. Lots of great gifts for the women in your lives!
Let’s start out with my adorable mama!
HOW CUTE IS SHE.
And I’m telling you, you aren’t going to believe her age. I’m going to share that in a bit, so get ready to be SHOCKED! (And yes, I got her permission! Ha!)
She went in store and had a blast picking out a new outfit for herself on me! I love what she put together, and I was happy to treat her to this little shopping spree. Her birthday is this week!
She raved about how incredibly soft the sweater is and that it’s the perfect fit, not too tight, but not too loose. The royal blue color she chose is gorgeous, but it also comes in 7 additional colors. She appreciated the fact that the length went way below her waistband, but for those that love a half tuck (like me!), you could definitely pull that off as well.
The little buttons on the sleeve add such a nice design detail. The sweater is true to size.
Her necklace pairs silver and gold together in this classic equestrian style, and it’s such a beautiful piece of jewelry that will go with so many different outfits.
Don’t you think the entire outfit is darling?
I was so happy that she went a bit bold with a bright white pant, and I think they look AMAZING on her. The blue, white, and gold all came together to give the entire outfit a festive feel.
The pants have a higher waistband which she deems necessary, and a slim fit which looks great on her. They are appropriately lined, and they hit her perfectly on her ankles on her 5’6″ frame.
The clutch was such a cute addition to the outfit. And it’s the perfect size to carry all the necessities to a holiday party.
Now let’s talk about these metallic loafers! First of all, and most importantly, they are comfy! My mom is like me and doesn’t abide by the whole “beauty is pain” mantra.
The metallic gold obviously gives them a fancy feel, but they could easily be dressed up or down. I think they would look awesome with a pair of ankle jeans and a black sweater! True to size.
She’s just as cute as can be.
And get this.
She turned 73 this past weekend!
I asked if I could share her age, and she said “HECK, YES. I’m proud to be happy and healthy at my age!” I’m so proud of her too. She goes above and beyond for me, my sister, my dad, and her grandbabies every day. If you need her for something, SHE IS THERE for you in a heartbeat. I sure do love her and feel incredibly lucky that she’s MY mom!
MY TALBOTS PIECES
Even though this post was supposed to just highlight my mom, when I hopped online to look around, I decided it would be great fun to get my sister and I in on the fun as well. TALBOTS HAS SOME SERIOUSLY CUTE CLOTHES! So many of their selections are bright and festive, and I knew my mom would cherish an afternoon with her kids AND a picture of the three of us.
So Conner and I both picked out sweaters and jewelry, and the three of us met up for lunch on the McKinney Square last week. (My sister’s 6 week old baby and my dad were also part of the fun, but they were all cozied up in Spoon’s while we were taking the pictures.)
I went with this cozy cowl neck sweater. I was drawn to the hot pink and the classic cowl neck design. Y’all know I generally go for a 1/2 tuck, but I really like the way this particular sweater looked worn out. True to size.
The earrings are a bit hard to see in this photo, but they are an absolutely darling combination of tortoise shell accented with some brightly colored gemstones.
The bag is fabulous. I love the interesting crescent moon shape, and this leopard pattern is perfection. And you know I’m picky about leopard prints.
The bracelet is gorgeous and looks much more expensive than it is. I love that it mixes both metals, and I think you’ll find it goes nicely with all different kinds of outfits (from casual to dressy)! It’s pretty enough to wear on it’s own, but it would also look great stacked.
CONNER’S TALBOTS PIECES
I knew mom had picked the royal blue sweater, so I picked the hot pink sweater, and then I told Conner to choose something that would tie all of outfits together. She nailed it.
Conner’s striped sweater incorporates lots of fun colors and has the cutest little tie at the neck on the back. The colors are beautiful, and it’s very soft and comfortable. True to size.
I’m just so thankful for these two ladies!
Talbots has us dressed all festive for the holidays and ready to spend some more family time together.
I sure do love my girls!
I also thought it would be fun to end today’s post with a Talbots gift guide. Think of it as a one stop shop for all the women in your life. Look how absolutely darling everything is!
