Ageless Style - Mother's Day Outfit


The Ageless Style Link Up-  The first Monday of every month a group of over forty fashion bloggers pick a monthly theme and show different ways of styling it. 

Hello and welcome to another Ageless Style Link Up.  This month it was my turn to pick the challenge and because the link up occurs one week before Mother's Day, I decided we should all wear what we plan on wearing for Mother's Day or "What we wish we could wear on Mother's Day" if we live in a state that is still in lockdown.  Unfortunately, I still live in a lock downed state, so my outfit is more of a "wish".  We won't be able to go anywhere on Mother's Day, but thankfully I have one child (and a son-in-law) and my two grandchildren living with me so I will not be spending the holiday alone.  We will still do something special on Mother's Day! .  My grand daughter requested a tea party, so we will still get all dressed up for Mother's Day to have a tea party!  And I am requesting the men in our household make us ladies a special breakfast of French toast with strawberries and whipped cream!




Since it is a Mother's Day post, I invited my sweet grandchildren Alethea and Atticus to join me.  We had to shop our closets for something to wear as we can't buy anything new right now.  It was quite the challenge putting three coordinating outfits together as they brought only a small amount of clothes with them when they moved in for the duration of the quarantine.


 I chose this navy blue tie front blouse from Stitch Fix to match the blue and olive in Atticus' outfit.  There is some pink in my top to pull out the pink from Alethea's tulle skirt, but it's not as noticeable as the coral flowers.


I paired my top with a white skirt.  I've never worn this top with a skirt before.  I previously styled it with pants HERE, and olive pants in THIS POST.  I chose a skirt this time because I thought it was more appropriate for Mother's Day and I also wanted to try this top with a skirt.





Because we were taking pictures in my hilly yard, I chose navy ballet flats.


For jewelry I went with pink earrings and a pink bracelet to pull out the pink in Alethea's outfit.

 



I hope wherever you live that you are still able to celebrate Mother's Day some way.

I'll be back after Mother's Day with more pictures of our actual Mother's Day celebrations!

  2. I love that gorgeous top, Amy, and it's perfect with a white skirt! You had an extra challenge with pulling pieces together for the little ones but what a pretty picture! I think it's wonderful that your family can be there with you. We usually go out to eat for Mother's Day and restaurants are re-opening at 25% in our area right now but I'm not sure I want to go into them until I see the numbers going down :/ Happy Mother's Day to you and your daughter!

  4. I have been getting dressed for the different occasions and celebrations these past couple of months even if it is for half the day. My parents' 50th anniversary is coming up this Saturday so we will be celebrating that. Our state is starting to open up so we may go eat out.

    1. Oh, lucky you! I envy people who live in red states. I know someone who traveled recently to a red state and he said it was amazing how everyone was out and about and most businesses were open (but operating cautiously). What a difference from our state!

  6. It's so sweet that you coordinated with your grandchildren--and how comforting that they are quarantining with you. The top looks great with your white skirt.

  8. What a great look for Mother's Day. I'm loving this floral blouse. A tea party sounds like so much fun. I couldn't think of a more perfect thing to do on that day!

    1. Thanks so much. I hear it will be cold on Mother's Day (What a surprise! Easter, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day are always cold and/or rainy in Wisconsin.) So we probably won't be able to have our tea party in the garden.

  9. Amy,

    This is a lovely outfit. Pairing your floral top with a white skirt was a brilliant idea and your wish for MD breakfast sounds yummy. IMHO, florals are a gal's BSFF (best style friend forever) so it was a fabulous choice to feature this month. Be well.

  16. It's been a long time since I've worn a skirt. The last time was when I took my oath to become a Canadian citizen in 2018. Living off the grid most of the time doesn't call for a dress very often. - Margy

  17. Having those babies around surely agrees with you. They are just adorable but check you out!! You look very svelte. That blouse is lovely and different. I like the navy contrasted with the white. And your ballet flats are practical and cute. Glad you will surrounded with some of your dearest loved ones tomorrow.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm happy they will be here too. What a horrible Mother's Day it will be for many women across this country. It makes me so sad.

  18. What lovely pics and how nice you are able to spend mother's day with your kids and grandkids :) Over here they lifted the restrictions on Mother's day so we could have 5 visitors over - a really nice mother's day present! :)

    Hope you had a good weekend! It was a big day here, first day back at school for my son today after 6 weeks - it was closed because of the virus!

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! The new link up is live on my blog now, I'd love you to join again.
