Countdown alert! May 12 (a.k.a. Mother's Day) will be here before you know it—wait, you made your brunch reservations already, right? Now this particular Sunday is a big deal. It's the official time to celebrate your own awesome mom and/or it could be that key moment to impress your significant other's. Ah! Either way, you need to dress to impress, so let's look to January Jones' floral-chic outfit for inspiration.
Go with a daytime-friendly and mom-approved floral dress, but edge it up (just slightly) with some light layering pieces and cool accessories. A long blazer or a light trench makes the outfit more modern and interesting—plus, the piece will come in handy if moms wants to dine alfresco in the breezy spring weather (or the air-con is blasting indoors).
To complete the outfit, invest in a pair of strappy sandals, but keep it classy by skipping the party platforms or stilettos in favor of a chunky mid-heel or low wedge. Stash your Mother's Day card and pampering spa gift certificate in a chic but functional cross-body bag. While it's smart to stick with a neutral hue, don't be afraid to add a little flair, like January's perforated leather pattern. Hey, it'll give you and Mom something to talk about.
Shop out some outfit ideas below, and don't forget to make those reservations! (P.S. January's navy blocked heels and cross-body bag, by Coach, are in there too.)
