Simple Dress Ideas for Mother's Day and Beyond

Do you like to dress up for Mother's Day? I might do brunch and definitely church, but it depends on the mood I'm in for what kind of outfit I'm going to wear. My kids are all pretty much grown now, but one of my favorite things to do was to dress like my daughters for the holiday. Maybe that's what I'll ask for as my Mother's Day gift.


As I was looking for tea party outfits a couple of weeks ago, I came across a couple of dresses that would be nice for your Mother's Day event. These have a touch of color so it's perfect for the season too. Remember, you don't have to limit yourself to Mother's Day with these dresses. Consider other events you may have coming up like graduation ceremonies, or baby and bridal showers too.

I love a nice one shoulder moment. Whether it's a dress, a body suit, or a jumpsuit, they're chic. When I saw this one shoulder midi dress at kohl's, I was intrigued by the style and color. The length is great for my 5-foot 10-inch frame, and I think you have some room to play around with it if you wanted to add an accessory like a belt. Otherwise, a simple bag and nice wedge or flat sandal will do just fine. Did I mention it was on clearance and well stocked. So, check for coupons to increase your savings.

This flutter sleeve midi dress is so simple but flattering, and a lovely dress for all the summer events. I'm a fan of the spaghetti straps, and they're adjustable so you can place them where you need the dress to fit. You might want to consider a strapless bra, but I was comfortable with the fit on this dress, and one wasn't necessary. Add your simple nude shoes like these well priced block heels I picked up at DSW, and you can attend all the events with confidence this season.


These are just a couple of suggestions for your Mother's Day events that are simple and will make getting ready easy. Check out the other dresses I previously mentioned for more options, and make sure to check for coupons. At the time this is being written, a coupon ranging from 15 to 30% off is available, and can even be applied to certain dresses as well as clearance.  Whatever you're doing to celebrate, I hope you have a very happy Mother's Day.
