What To Wear Over 40 To Mother’s Day Brunch

How do you celebrate Mother’s Day? In my family my sisters, parents, aunts and cousins all go out and have a big, leisurely buffet brunch. I always like to dress especially pretty for the occasion, so I usually wear a floral dress, heels or tall wedges and some dainty jewelry. Maybe you’re the same?

If you’re wondering what to wear this Mother’s Day, here are a couple of winning ideas -one dressy and one more casual.


Fresh Florals

These days anything goes, but it is still nice to put some thought into what you wear on a special day like this. After all how often are you the guest of honor and don’t you want to look nice in all those photos that get taken round the brunch table?

This pretty floral dress is soft and sweet but practical too. It’s the kind of dress you will wear again, to an afternoon wedding, to a luncheon to dinner, to church, and yes even to work. I always find it a bit chilly on Mother’s Day, so the jacket is handy. The wedges are comfier than high heels, but they make your legs look nice and long and lean in a dress like this.


Punch it Up with Print Pants and Poppy Red

Even if you are just going someplace casual, it’s nice to feel special, and this cute outfit will do just that. Cropped pants and a punch of color is all you need to look fresh and feminine.

Again, this is a very practical outfit that you will wear over and over, and each piece can be paired with many different things in your wardrobe. Simple slides are perfect when the mood is relaxed, and you want to give your feet a Mother’s Day break.

What will you be wearing this Mother’s Day? Do you dress up and is it important to feel pretty on this special day?  Here’re a few more pretty florals that are flattering.
