What to Wear on Mother’s Day to look pretty and feel special
Pretty Floral Dress
You can’t get any more Mother’s Day than a pretty floral dress. A wrap style is always classy and figure-flattering. This one has a pretty ruffle down the front and smocked cuffs. Aren’t those colors perfect for Mother’s Day?
Lacy Eyelet Dress
Mom, you are an angel, and you will look like one too in this cute white eyelet dress that is pretty and picture-perfect for Mother’s Day. This is a great outfit if you are going out to celebrate – a little bit fancy and a lot cute!
White Pants and a Pretty Top or Blouse
A chic pair of pants can be just as pretty as a dress and are super practical. I love the soft waist tie on these classic white pants and how they look so fresh paired with this soft orange shade. Nude sandals are perfect with white pants. This fabulous floral chain bag ties the whole look together. Ready for brunch, mom?

Breezy Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is a nice choice for Mother’s Day, and this year there are lots. I like this pink coral halter with its tiered skirt. It’s such a romantic silhouette. Try some beaded bracelets, and a wicker bag play up the summer vibe. This is easy and breezy.
A Summery Skirt
A light, bright summer skirt and a pretty tee is all you need to look Mother’s Day ready! Throw on some block heels and a bit of jewelry and you are ready to start celebrating.
Jeans and a Light, Silky Blouse
Some Mother’s Day get-togethers are casual affairs, like lunch at home or a backyard barbecue. (Hopefully, you won’t be doing the cooking! LOL) If that’s how you’ll be spending Mother’s Day, you’ll want to look pretty and polished and a little dressier than every day but not over the top.
A pair of flare jeans with a pretty floral blouse fits the bill perfectly. Keep the feminine vibe going with your accessories. Floral earrings and a strappy sandal in a soft pastel color add the perfect mom touch.
