Going Outfits: Mother’s Day

Macy’s and Mom’s.  Two great things coming together in one weekend.  Mother’s Day is Sunday.  The Macy’s One Day Sale runs through Saturday, 5/12/12.  Here just in the nick of time to dress you well for your mom.  There are some very good deals to be had, a few of them shown below.  Items marked with a * are “Web Busters”, and in-store prices will likely not match those web buster prices.  And the item might not even be in-store.  Once you have $99 worth of merchandise in your cart free shipping will kick in, and you can make returns to you local Macy’s.  So let’s look at some great deals found, grouped together to make some outfits that any mother would be proud of.


INC Sleeveless Pailsey Printed Keyhole Neck* – $58.99 ($119.50)
Style&Co Edith Sandals – $49.99 ($59)
Giani Bernini Glazed Leather Convertible Satchel* – $67.99 ($138)

Going out for brunch?  Perhaps to church and then lunch?  This Mediterranean chic look should treat you well.  The dress from INC does fall a few inches above the knee, but is still appropriate.  The keyhole neck, and sequins on the neckline, add sophistication to this piece.  And, it’s made from a cotton/spandex blended material, so there’s a bit of stretch if you end up eating one too many plates at the buffet brunch.  The shoes and bag compliment the dress perfectly.  The dress and bag are web busters.


Lauren by Ralph Lauren Giselle Straight Leg Pull On Linen – $44.99 ($99.50)
Lauren Jeans Co. Giovanna Three Quarter Sleeve Striped V-Neck – $20.99 (59.50)
AK Anne Klein Orria Espadrille Wedges – $46.72 ($89)

Just hanging out at your mom’s house this year?  Keep it casual, but still presentable, with an ensemble like this.  The Ralph Lauren pants are 100% linen, and have a drawstring waist and relaxed fit.  They look as comfy as pajama pants.  Continue the nautical look with the striped v-neck top, and round the outfit out with some espadrille wedges, like the Anne Klein shown above.  You’ll be comfortable, but dressed well enough to go out for a glass of wine if mom decides she wants to.


Style&Co. Printed Tiered Maxi Skirt – $30.99 ($49)
Style&Co. Sleeveless Ruffle Collar Beaded Tank – $17.99 ($29)
Impo Shoes Abella Sandals* – $39.99 ($59)

Perhaps you’re taking mom to an outdoor function, like an outdoor play or concert at a winery.  An airy, flowing skirt like this will provide ample coverage should you have to sit on the ground.  And the shoes will slide off easily as well, just in case you feel like walking barefoot on the grass.  Just pair the skirt and sandals with a simple tank like the one shown.  If you go with white, be careful swirling that wine!


Levi’s 512 Straight Leg Denim Bermuda – $32.99 ($44)
INC International Concepts Cap Sleeve Peasant Top – $27.99 ($39.50)
Fossil Island Weave Belt – $17.99 ($40)
Report Shoes Whitfield Flats – $46.72 ($89)

Is your mom more of a backyard barbecue kind of gal?  Does she prefer burgers, beer, and bad mitten?  Well, if you’re spending your Sunday afternoon hanging out with your family cooking on the grill and playing croquet, the above ensemble will suit you well.  Comfy shoes that are still trendy (and really cheap, but sizes are going fast!), reliable Levi’s, a cool and comfortable top, and an interesting belt to pull it all together.  Unfortunately Macy’s no longer has that multicolor option for the belt, but you can find it at Zappos.
