Fashion Friday: Mum’s the Word

I was sitting on the porch of my parent’s house one day and flipping through some catalogs my mom got and picked up the Talbot’s catalog and was half horrified/ half surprised to find a couple things I really liked. My mom got a big kick out of it announcing “Your getting older!” Thank you. I was not painfully aware of that. However, it is true that you can find some great pieces at the shops you think of as for “your mom”…

I tried both these natural cashmere sweaters on at Eileen Fisher with my mom (of course) and LOVED them (but not the $300+ price tag)


I have always enjoyed looking through J.Jill’s catalog (and I really like the heavy drapery at the entrance to their stores), but never actually bought something for myself there- I might this season!


Soft Surroundings is one of those bizarre catalogs that has clothes, face creams to fight wrinkles and cashmere covered hot water bottles- definetely marketed towards the older set- but I found soem serious gems on this site!

** call me crazy but I love both these bathrobes below- maybe just because I’m in the market for one and because I love the very bohemian look of them.



Talbots is the fall back “mom” store. My mom alone keeps them in business and profitable, I swear. Just look at the gorgeous jewelry and handbags- I was amazed!
