I went to Livingston, Tennessee (my hometown) over the weekend. I got my hair done, you’ll see it in a few days when I run out of photos that I’ve already taken, I watched my granddaughter play a golf match, my grandson play a baseball game, and celebrated an early Mother’s Day with my mom. It was a fabulous weekend, but now it is back to the grindstone. Lol!
It was all very casual, and we didn’t dress up to go out except to visit my aunt on Saturday. This coming weekend is going to be a dressier occasion, and we are going to The Virginian Golf Club for a Mother’s Day Brunch. Some friends of ours from Grundy will be coming over to spend the weekend, and I am thrilled to see them. Since we’ve moved, we don’t see each other often, and I can’t wait to catch up with them.
How do you celebrate Mother’s Day? Do you have a fancy dinner, is it a family get-together, or is it just another day? Honestly, it has been all of those things in the past, and I never know from year to year how we will celebrate the day. Almost always, no matter what we do, I am dressed casually. Mother’s Day has never been a fancy event at our house, it is usually celebrated with a cookout or dinner. The outfit that I’m wearing today is a great outfit to wear since it is casual, comfortable, and still looks put together.
This Tie-Detail Knit Shift Dress fits great, and I love the way the stripes flatter your body. The stripes draw your eyes to the tie detail, and that helps to create curves for those of us who don’t have them naturally. I like the length of the dress, it hits me right at my knees. The dress is 100% cotton, so it breathes and moves with you, plus you don’t overheat in this dress. I am wearing a large, and it fits me great.
I got the Hadley Butterfly Drop Earrings in Gold for Mother’s Day in honor of my grandmother. She loved butterfly jewelry, so these earrings have a personal meaning to me. I think jewelry is very personal, and I love giving it as a gift since it lasts forever. For Mother’s Day, I gave my mother the Cross Charm Pendant Necklace in 18k Gold Vermeil that I wear daily. She really loved it and put it on immediately. I’m also wearing the Adeline Link Necklace and Elaina Beaded Stretch Bracelet.
Yesterday, some of you mentioned the trend of wearing sneakers with casual dresses. This is a fashion trend that is modern-looking and shows people you are aware of the latest trends. I’ve worn these white Sperry Crest Vibe Canvas Sneakers for a couple of years. They wash up well, and I love the no-tie laces. They run a little big, so I sized down to an 8 1/2 instead of my usual size 9.
I know that some of you might not like stripes, so I’m linking to several dresses below that would also look great with sneakers. You can wear other colors of sneakers, I have a pair of gray, red, and navy that I wear.
