Cleobella Midi Dress

I wore this dress on our recent family trip to Mexico. It’s a gorgeous tan midi dress by Cleobella. This dress has a tiered skirt, buttons down the top half, and short puff sleeves. The longer hemline and sleeves give you more coverage which is really nice, but the dress is still very lightweight and comfortable. I styled it with wedges but you could also wear it with sneakers for a more casual look. You could wear this on vacation, to your Mother’s Day festivities, a wedding, etc. If you’re looking for more Mother’s Day dresses, then I’ve got you covered with a few more picks below that I know you’ll love…

Party-Perfect Florals

I’m not usually a huge fan of prints but this pretty pink floral dress by Misa is subtle and beautiful. Plus, this is the kind of dress you can dress up or down for any occasion!

One-Shoulder Stunner

For something a little dressier, go with this gorgeous Hemant & Nandita dress. The print is so intricate and unique and the colors are beautiful. I love the one-shoulder neckline, billowy sleeve, and belted waist.

Out of the Blue

I bought this dress thinking I'm probably going to return it, but I LOVE it! I think I'll bust this beautiful blue and white printed dress out for Mother's Day... if it's not 20 degrees here.

The Everything Dress!

I keep sharing this dress because it's just that cute, comfy and versatile! I LOVE that is has both sleeves and a longer hemline to keep you covered, but still cool in the spring/summer. It does run a bit small in the bust so choose your size accordingly. I bought XS. And swipe to see the cutest sleeveless yellow dress by the same designer.

Ready for Anything

It's another everything dress. Wear it casually running errands on the weekends with sneakers, on the beach... or even on safari. Not many dresses can do all of that! It's worth the investment!

Ulla Johnson Sarafina Dress

Moving into a few dressier options…this printed Ulla Johnson dress is a really beautiful option for anything you have coming up. It’s pretty pricey but Ulla Johnson does an incredible job with prints, fit, and long-term wear.

Cara Cara Floral Dress

If you’re looking for something with a more subtle print, this Cara Cara floral dress is perfect and I love the small cutouts on the sides!

Bronx & Banco Madeleine Dress

Next up is one of my personal favorites. Every detail on this dress is SO gorgeous! It's the perfect mix of sexy, modest, and modern. If you’re a bride-to-be, this would be the perfect dress for a rehearsal dinner, shower, or even a vow renewal.

Line & Dot Satin Dress

Satin dresses were super on-trend last year and it looks like they aren’t going away anytime soon. This is a great, affordable option. Throw on a cardigan and sandals for a trendy look or dress it up with a chic bag and heels for Mother’s Day, date night, or whatever! The white is selling out fast but it also comes in a pretty pale blue.

Rococo Sand Long Sleeve Dress

This gorgeous dress is on my wish list. I love the colors, print, exposed front buttons, leg slit, tied sleeves…well, I guess I love everything about it!

Pleated Halter Dress

This pretty midi by Ted Baker is super chic. It’s body-skimming and flattering, the color is perfect for summer, and the chain straps are really cool.
