Mother’s Day Outfits: Comfy Casual for the Win

How many of you ladies have some fun Mother’s Day plans for this coming weekend?? Some of you mamas out there may not even know what the plans are for your Mother’s Day so it’s a good idea to dress for anything … whether it’s brunch, shopping (lucky ladies!! lol), a picnic … talking a  stroll in the park, sneaking away for a big glass or two of vino … Lol! No matter what you’ve got going on, the key to being outfit ready is wearing something versatile and comfortable but ALSO something that makes you feel fresh, pretty and CLEAN (even if it’s just for the first hour of the day … LOL).

How many of you just read that above and looked at my ALL white outfit and cringed? Lol!! I know what you’re thinking … white shirt, white pants, white shoes … BABY!!! Nope, nadda, not gonna happen!! LOL!! It’s true, I’m probably going to be covered from head to toe in stains by the end of the day in this outfit but dammit it’s Mother’s Day and I love white so if any day, it’s MOTHER’S DAY that I’m going to bust this out.

However, for those of you who may not be as keen on all white as me, not to worry, I’ve included some different options for you below along with a few tips on how you can effortlessly achieve a casual and practical look this Mother’s Day that are also affordable thanks to Joe Fresh (thank you for powering the site today!!).

Casual comfort: If I knew we were going out for a nice dinner I would definitely rock a dress but for breakfast, lunch and daytime activities I like to go comfy casual, a nice loose tee, jeans and a jean jacket are perfection! I loved LOVED the fit of these pants, out of ALL my white jeans these ones are the comfiest and the fit was so surprising! Ps. They’re also not stark white but more of an off-white so I love the color! Did you by chance notice the lace detail on the jacket? It’s so cute and totally different! I should also mention here that both the jeans and the jacket have a slight stretch to them so THAT’S good for this mama at brunch!! BRING ON THE PANCAKES!!

Shoes: I’m obsessed with my new little slip ons! I’ve realized when holding a baby you don’t really have two hands to tie a shoe so slip ons have been my saving grace this spring. Plus, I’ve gotten SO many compliments on them and people are always happy and surprised to hear they’re from Joe Fresh!

Bring a hat: This weather is crazy and so unpredictable … one moment it’s a torrential downpour, the next moment its tornado windy then the sun pokes out and all of a sudden it feels like it’s a million degrees outside. I like to have a hat handy in case Leo seems a bit chilly or if I need to keep the sun out of his eyes and for me, well, it’s so nobody has to stare at my wind-whipped hair. LOL!!

    My youngest adult daughter sent me a text last week which said “Hi Mom! What are we doing for Mother’s Day?” and my reply was “Well, what did you have planned??” LOL! We are doing a family brunch at home complete with mimosas. I usually cook for my mother so this year it will be a “Murray Girls” team effort!
