Mother’s Day Outfits

It’s hard to believe this weekend is Mother’s day. It’s still a little difficult for me since losing my Mom in 2009. I miss her so much! If you still have your Mom hug her extra tight, there’s nothing like a Mother’s love.

We do have an exciting weekend because my son is graduating from Law school this Saturday. I know my Mom would be so proud of him! Mom adored Cory and he adored her!

This picture was taken at Cory’s high school graduation in 2006. He was picked as the Salutatorian of his graduating class and Mom and Dad were thrilled. He went on to play college basketball at Asbury College, where he graduated in 2010.

Mother's Day Outfits

With all the celebrations, I’m trying to figure out what to wear. Do I wear a dress, pants, capri pants, etc.??

Here are some tips if you’re trying to decide what to wear for Mother’s Day:

1. If you’re going to wear something you already have but want to update your outfit add some cute accessories. I love to do this! I recently purchased this coral stud bracelet from J Crew (remember when I said studs were in style and you all said you couldn’t wear them?).  The thick gold bracelet is from JC Penney’s and the cross bracelet is from Francesca’s.

2. Update an outfit you already have by updating your shoes. This can make all the difference and it’s an easy way for women our age to look trendy. Right now wedge heels are everywhere so adding them to your outfit will give it an updated look.

3. My rule of thumb is, “it’s better to be over dressed than under dressed”. Thankfully, women’s styles are dressier and more feminine right now and I’m glad. So if you’re not sure what to wear, go with something dressy and feminine and you’ll look great!

Here are some outfits (new and old) I’ve put together that would be perfect for Mother’s day.

How are you celebrating Mother’s Day? Do you know what you’re wearing?

Beauty For the Heart~~I shared this poem in 2011. My brother wrote it right before my Mom passed away so I thought in honor of Mom, I’d share it again.

There is None Better!

I hear people brag about their moms, but if they ever met mine they would know. There is none better.

You think you know a Christian that talks the talk and walks the walk? Well let me introduce you to my mom. There is none better.

I always thought the best way to describe a Christian is “Servant.” You should meet my mom. There is none better.

Do you know someone who is unselfish? Puts everyone above themselves? Would give you anything they had? I call her Wanda Faye, she’s my mom, and trust me, There is none better.

I’ve known her 37 years. I’ve seen her faithfulness. I’ve gotten up at 5 in the morning and found her reading her bible. I’ve watched her prepare to teach bible studies. This isn’t just a bias. I’m telling you! There is none better.

She’s fighting cancer now. She even does that selflessly and gracefully. I can’t tell you how many cards she has received. What does my mom do? She uses all the energy she has to try and write everyone back. Do I really need to do anymore convincing? There is none better.

If you’ve been fortunate enough to meet my mom you know what I mean. If she’s touched your hand, smiled that sweet smile, told you she loved you, told you she was praying for you, well consider yourself blessed…she meant every word. There is none better.

If the Lord does decide to take her home before we are ready. I can’t say I blame him. He knows what I do. There is none better. ~by Blake Long

Have a blessed day!

    Congrats on your son’s graduation from Law School. I know how proud you must be. Last year my daughter graduated from Law School. Now comes the pressure of the Bar Exam! I wish him well. Happy Mother’s Day! Enjoy!

  9. Hi Cyndi, All of the outfits are great! I always say “it’s better to be over-dressed than under-dressed” too! I feel better when I’m dressed up. I think my mom was the one who taught me that. I still have her with me and truly do cherish her! Your brother’s poem reminds me of mom! I lost my dad 12 years ago and miss him terribly but am so grateful for having such wonderful parents! Blessings Krista

  10. Love them all! I agree with the post on dresses being classy for a graduation. I’m 37 and unfortunately it seems like dresses are almost becoming too “dressy” for most occasions now…even church! So glad the more feminine attire is coming back! The last dress looks especially beautiful on you, plus super-trendy with the shoes. Blessings!

  11. I like the last dress the best. I would like to know about the orange strapped shoes, too.

  12. Cyndi you have a fabulous collection of shoes! I love the navy sheath dress! Very classy and stylish. But any of the outfits will look great. Happy Mother’s Day! Susan

  13. Love all the outfits, but especially the dresses. My daughter-in-law graduated from Asbury in 2009 and also played basketball there! Her dad was also a minister in Kentucky. He now has a church in Deltona, Florida. Love your blog! It is a perfect blend of beauty and faith! Have a great Mother’s Day:)

    I think a dress is so nice to wear to a graduation… you’ll look classy! I wish people “dressed up” a little more…. I love watching Downton Abbey! Everyone, including those of lower economic means, dressed for the occasion!
    I miss my mom on Mother’s Day, too… She died 25 years ago… the same year I graduated from High School…,but I was INCREDIBLY blessed with a step-mom who has loved and cherished me as her own for many, many years! I’m so thankful for that!
    I hope your Mother’s Day weekend is wonderful AND well-dressed! :-)

  15. So strange that I too lost my mother in 2009 and am attending a child’s college graduation this weekend… You look beautiful in all the looks… Have a wonderful weekend, knowing your mother will be there with as much pride as you yourself feel and have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
    Days of rain and an outdoor ceremony means no heels, so glad I love wedges!

  16. Kendra (Joy) says:

    I love that poem and remember reading it b4 on your blog :) How sweet. For the 1st time in 11 years I will be celebrating Mother’s Day with my mom!!! I feel soo blessed! My mom’s birthday is in 2 weeks so we’ve visited my parents on her bday but never Mother’s Day. My parents are coming tonight for the weekend. I’ve been sooo excited planning food, etc. that I haven’t thot about what I’ll wear. lol. Just picked up our lil guy from Kindergarten and he was hiding a card… soo sweet! :) Hope you have a wonderful one, Cyndi and congrats to Cory!!

  17. Paula Plummer says:

    I like them all but the green outfit is my least favorite. You look beautiful no matter what you have on!!

  18. Sheryl says:

    I just recently came across your website and appreciate the suggestions that you graciously share. I have a son who is a current Asbury student. We just sent him off this morning after his week-long visit at home to work on campus for the summer. I will so miss having him home, but it’s a good place down there and he loves it! Such a sweet tribute to your mom as Mother’s Day approaches!!

  19. Beth Ann says:

    Oh, you made me cry in the best possible way. What a dear poem! And that navy sheath is just gorgeous. :)

  20. What a lovely tribute to your Mom! Happy Mother’s Day!

  21. Pam A. says:

    You look so pretty in every outfit, I couldn’t pick just one!!

  22. Lee Ann says:

    I love all of the outfits you’ve shown! I really like the shoes with the orange strap. Where did you find those? Enjoy your Mothers’ Day! A side note… 2 distant cousins just graduated from Asbury.

  23. Kathy Baker says:

    That was beautiful and you are too, you look great in everything!

  24. Bobette says:
