happy mother’s day to you. so many of our readers are mothers, and this is a day to celebrate you and your good work of raising children. although this year may not be the mother’s day we want—we may in fact be distanced from the ones we love the most—it is important to remember that at the end of the day, family is the most important thing. my sons and i would normally be going to brunch today. but this year, we’ll all be eating together on my porch. and i’m thankful for that—thankful we are together. however, i did look through some old posts of mother’s days past that i wanted to share with you. here’s how to dress for a special occasion like mother’s day.
if you’ve never worn a jumpsuit before this might be the time to try one. a jumpsuit can be worn in lieu of a dress but still make a statement. i love its comfort factor and ease of movement. and versatility? dress it up with a blazer as in today’s OOTD or let it stand on its own without one.
as with most special occasions, i rely heavily on the mighty dress – it just works. today’s silhouette is a page taken directly from the eighties. a drop-waist dress and blazer. i love the looser fit of clothes this season from the wide-leg pant to the midi-length. it’s feminine, fun and comfortable to wear.
if you want to go for the win look for an on-trend midi length. it’s one of this season’s strongest trends. i for one am happy to see it back in the rotation. doesn’t it makes shopping for a dress so much easier?
neutral or monochromatic color schemes work well as in today’s ootd. a simple sheath dress with a faux suede fabric, patent leather pumps, and a scarf tossed over my shoulder for a little extra pizazz. how’s that for simple?
it’s always fun to go through the archives, especially when it involves how to dress for a special occasion. from our family to yours: have a blessed mother’s day.
