When it comes to celebrating Mother’s Day, I’d mostly rather not. I don’t mean that in a bitter, cynical kind of way, but definitely prefer to skip the obligatory brunch at an over-crowded restaurant, and don’t expect flowers and gifts. My mother and mother-in-law have both been gone for several years now, and I’m the only “Mom” in the immediate family. Our son has never really recognized this or most other holidays, and with us still being in the 30-day transition period after his move to the group home, I felt more relieved and let off the hook than sad or disappointed. So le Monsieur and I celebrated a day early with a nice Saturday night dinner at our favorite local Indian restaurant, and then took a bike ride out to the beach on Sunday morning. No muss, no fuss, just the way I like it!
My no-fuss casual date night outfit included my favorite Covered Perfectly top (the pleated v-neck c/o Covered Perfectly), which is so soft, flattering and comfortable. I topped it off with my favorite linen maxi cardigan from Eileen Fisher, and jewelry from French Kande.
And I am loving these booties! This is another of those heel-looks-higher-than-it-feels styles, and the leather is SO soft!
How did you celebrate Mother’s Day? Do you have a go-to date night outfit?
