3 Ways | Mother's Day Dress

3 Ways | Mother's Day Dress

Hey guys! How was y'alls weekend? Ours was so relaxing, we lounged around most of the day Saturday and yesterday we got some chores done around the house as well as photograph this lavender lilac purple dress.

I have had this dress for years and have used it in numerous types of occasions. I  wore it to my graduation, our gender reveal party, etc. and now it's on my radar to wear for my first Mother's Day. I love that this dress has this beautiful sleeve and back detail. 

So I thought I would create three different ways I can style it by simply switching out the shoes and adding/removing necklaces.

For my first look I went with the obvious and paired the dress with wedges (perfect for spring and summer) and a statement necklace. I love how a statement necklace alone can transform any outfit.

My second look was toned down a bit by trading the wedges for cute sandals (a more casual but still cute option for spring and summer)  and adding a simple pendant necklace. Although my accessories are a little more simple with this look, doesn't mean my outfit is simple. The detailing on this dress is more than enough and becomes the focus.

My final look takes this dress down a few notches and makes this look more casual but still like I put effort into it. I don't know about y'all but I've been watching this trend and have been skeptical of it but I think I like it. Dresses are so comfy (but don't get too comfortable that you aren't sitting like a lady) and pairing them with tennis is kinda genius. 

If only I didn't have to worry about the bending over situation and sitting lady-like and let's not forget nursing my sweet little babe, I'd probably have a lot more dresses in my closet. I was also hoping the v-neck wrap bust area would make nursing possible while wearing but it doesn't so I will still be on the hunt of what to wear but that doesn't stop you from using these outfits as inspiration. I have linked similar versions of the dress below.

Gift Guide | Mother's Day

Gift Guide | Mother's Day

This post is sponsored by ModCloth 
but all opinions and ideas are my own. 

When considering what to buy the mother in your life a gift, be sure the gift is truly for her. What I mean is that new kitchen appliance she has mentioned wanting is nice and it's what she wants but she wants it to provide yummies for you. What she needs is a nice refresher for her soul, to remind her that she is her. A person. She is not just so and so's mom. So when picking out a gift, pick one that speaks to her as a person.

Treat her to a relaxed spa day. Watch the kids and allow her to enjoy a manicure and pedicure and a haircut without the worry of the baby crying or little Jimmy and Jill fighting over a chair. It'll be so nice and refreshing for her to truly focus on herself.

Spoil your mama with some jewelry. A small pair of studs are so simple yet timeless (and she doesn't have to worry about baby Charlie pulling them out her ears).

Gift her with the latest trendy clutch to keep her in style because let's get real we would love to carry something else besides a diaper bag all the time!

Heck do all three and than send her to lunch with her best gal friends while you hubbies watch the kiddos so they can have actual girl time without having to direct a circus.

And most importantly, make the mama in your life feel appreciated and loved (even more so than you already do) for all she has sacrificed for your family.

What do you plan on getting for the special mama in your life?
