4 Mother's Day Dress Ideas, From Fancy to Casual, All Under $100, With Nordstrom
There are quite a few pinch me moments here! First, let me express my gratitude for the fact that I'm beyond blessed to have Mother, as one of my titles. Having my Hartley and Grayson, has enriched and completed my life, in ways I never imagined. My heart is so full, and with the addition of our girls, to mine and my husband's beautiful life...I truly have everything I ever wanted in this lifetime...plus our furry son, Oscar.
Secondly, if you been following me for a hot second, or from the beginning, you will know my love of Nordstrom runs deep...so to collaborate with them on this post, is a career high for me and a dream come true. My love of online shopping, quickly developed the moment I became a mom, and my love for Nordstrom ten fold. I probably shop 85%-90% online these days. Nordstrom seriously made my life so much easier, simply because of their hassle free, shipping to and from. My body has definitely changed, especially since the birth of my sweet Grayson, and I'm still unsure sometimes of my sizing, and what is going to work. I definitely love, that I can order multiple sizes, or try a new style, all from the comforts of my home. Plus, their customer service is phenomenal, and anytime something didn't perform, I always feel comfortable returning to them...which is huge! Nothing worse then getting stuck with something you never wear, or that broke the first time, etc. As well, it's just super difficult to take 2 girls under 3 to the mall, and try on a bunch of clothes. Innovators and leaders in the fashion world...they are the perfect combination, catering to all us busy women!
Mother's day is such a beautiful day, whether you are personally a mother or not. It's such a lovely time to honor your own mother, a woman who was a mother figure to you, your mother in law, your grandparents, a sister, aunt, or best friend who is an amazing mom...we all know someone who is exemplifying love and raising sweet children. It's important to celebrate those people in your life, because while beyond amazing...it's a tough gig, and who doesn't love to feel appreciated and be celebrated!
I'm someone who loves dresses! Super easy, one and done, and off you go! Therefore, I'm sharing 4 of my favorite dresses to wear this holiday....and all Under $100!!
Some years, you will want to be super fancy, with something chic and fabulous planned, and others...a movie and take out, is like the perfect day off, celebration with your kiddos...right!! What I love most, is how easily you can change out your shoes and bag, and make these dresses more or less fancy.
A Little More Fancy
DRESS ($65) (wearing size medium) | HEELS (True to Size, and the most comfortable in all I tested, considering) | BAG Similar and Similar | CHOKER NECKLACE (new fav and under $50) | LAYERED NECKLACE (similar and similar)
Love this layered chiffon dress...and only $65...stop right!!!...looks easily over $200! Actually super comfy, not restricting at all...take her to a fabulous brunch, or dinner out with your crew! Plus re-wear for date nights, baby and bridal showers, birthdays, work parties etc. It is simple and chic and the floral is lovely and light, and great for my more neutral gals! You could easily pair this with look #3's sandals and take this down a notch.
The maxi dress of the summer...and for an amazing price point...$55!!! It comes in 7 patterns and 2 solids...I actually had a hard time choosing which one to feature, because I wanted a few prints! Loving this bright, happy, cheerful, beauty of a dress! Super flattering girls! I paired this with the same heels in look #1, but if you are taller, I'm 5'5" you could wear with flat sandals like these Tory Burch's or wedges to dress it down a bit. It lays beautifully, and is kind of sexy...so to make it more a mother's day, less sexy, look...I added this bralette underneath it, but I would wear this without a bralette on any other occasion. Also, loving this for any tropical vacation you might have coming up!
Kind of obsessed with this perfect dress!!! I would wear this over and over...dress up or down, and it is so figure flattering. Obsessed with the shoulder and neckline details! Such a stunner of a dress and only $89!! I love it with these flat sandals, for a chic, but able to run around with your babies, look. If your plans are an all day thing...you can definitely rock this dress all day and night, feel fabulous, and your feet will be super comfortable too!
Everyday Gal Chic
DRESS (comes in 7 colors $55, wearing size small) | SANDALS (True to size) | DENIM JACKET (size small) | BRALETTE (can't see but it is peeking out...obsessed with these for spring/summer this year) | GIVENCHY BAG (a FAV...super roomie...even holds my Macbook Pro (size medium) | CHOKER
If your plans are super low key, and maybe you just want to see a movie and relax with your babies kind of day...I love this! I'd wear this dress any day of the week (actually I'm wearing it in black, as I write this). You can easily pair this with sneakers, or the flats that I'm wearing in the previous look. However, I'm so loving these new sandals...they instantly dress up a plain dress, are super fun, and comfy. With the addition of a denim jacket and fun bag, there ya go...super easy!! This dress comes in 7 colors, and is only $55!! This denim jacket has been a staple for over a year...its slimming, the perfect shade and so versatile!
To all the mommas reading this...enjoy your special day...whatever you decide you want to do...I hope it's packed with love and joy! Happy Mother's Day!
All The Love, Kim
