What do you wear on Mother’s Day to look pretty and feel special?……
Jeans – Casual Get-Together
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 nice jeans with a pretty top fit the bill perfectly. A top with feminine details like a ruffle or a pretty neckline is always lovely. Keep the feminine vibe going with your accessories. Fringe earrings or a shoe in a soft pastel color are both great options.
Figure Flattering Dress – Mother’s Day Brunch
If you’re heading out to brunch with your family, a pretty dress is a great option. This cute floral dress with its bright blooms feels like spring. It’s feminine and very figure flattering the way it nips in at the waist and gently flows out at the hips.
I love the relaxed cold shoulder detail and the way the soft sleeves drape over the top or of the arms. It gives the dress a romantic feel. This dress is a winner because it can easily be worn to many other functions all summer long.
Breezy Maxi Dress – Outdoor Celebration
Planning to dine alfresco at a restaurant or have a BBQ by the pool? A maxi dress is a great idea for an over-40 gal. It’s light, breezy and feels kind of dressy even though it’s not. If you want to look chic but relaxed then a maxi dress is the way to go.
Modern Shift Dress – Mother’s Day Dinner Out
If you are going out for dinner to celebrate Mother’s Day, you can get a little more dressed up. In that situation, you can never go wrong with a sheath dress. A floral sheath dress is timeless and flatters the feminine shape. Pink is a perfect color for Mother’s Day, and it will bring warmth to an over-40 complexion.
And don’t forget your accessories. Comfy block heel shoes are great. As for your bag, if you typically schlep your oversized black carry-all around all year-long, switch it out when you are wearing a pretty dress like this for a spring and summer purse in a lighter color. This playful bag is fun and a nice way to treat yourself on Mother’s Day.
