What to wear for a Mother’s Day brunch

Do you have a Mother’s Day brunch planned for you mother this year? Or a church brunch, family brunch, friends to get together with for a Mother’s Day tea or brunch? Here’s some ideas on what to wear for a Mother’s Day brunch!

~ Flowers are always in because Mother’s Day is in spring and mother’s love flowers. Or most do. So bring out your floral tops, skirts and dresses.

~ Pastels are still in, because, again, spring.

~ Casual but cute is always a good way to go because brunch is not as formal as a dinner. Why not wear those comfortable jeans with a nice blouse and nice shoes?

~ Cute accessories. Purses, earrings, necklaces, ect. I’m not really big into bracelets because they really bug me flopping around on my arm for some reason, yet I wear my watch every day even though I can now look at my phone for the time, and it doesn’t bug me at all. Huh. Not sure what’s up with that.

~ A maxi skirt or dress is another cute but stylish way to go.

~ Cold shoulder tops and ruffle or bell sleeves are pretty in right now. Just be careful not to get those big bell sleeves in your plate of food!

~ Capri’s and a cute tee are another fun way to go.

~ Throw on a lightweight cardigan or a cute jacket just in case it’s too cool wherever you’re having brunch and you’re good to go!

I’m looking at the skirt in the photos below thinking I would probably end up getting food all over it. Perhaps denim is a better way to go. They say jeans never get dirty, right?  (Unless they’re white or pale colored ones. Ha.)

Welcome spring!

The first day of spring was sunny and warm, the second day, not so much. But I’m still excited for spring because it means we will be getting more nice warm days rather than cold ones, and the flowers are blooming, the ducks are wandering through my yard – not sure why – but still, birds are migrating back north and pretty flowers are out, so it’s all good.

It’s been a busy start this week with back to back background acting work the first couple of days of the week. So much fun to get back in the swing of things with my extra friends again. Not so much fun to have my cyst / lower back acting up just from standing around on a set all day without being able to sit much for 9 hours. Which meant the next day I was still dealing with the lower back pain and running on less than two hours of sleep. Oddly enough, after a couple of small cat naps in the morning before going on set, I was fine the whole rest of the day running on very little sleep. Sometimes I think sleep deprivation just hits later than you think it will.

I’ve been to a neurologist last week who said he couldn’t help me with the cyst. He doesn’t think it’s causing my problems and I just need more time to heal. Uh-huh. I walked out of that neurologist office last week and was crying before I even got out of the building. I’d been hoping he could help and that hope was dashed. I don’t necessarily want surgery, but I want a solution to whatever is causing the pain to flare up in my lower back. So here I am this week having more problems with pain flare-ups near the base of my spine all due to standing too long on set one day. I may need a second opinion on this. A doctor willing to find a solution. Something to give me hope…

But in the meantime, welcome spring. Goodbye winter! Even if it’s supposed to get a bit colder the end of this week. There’s just something about spring that brings new hope and renewing of the spirit and mind, no matter what is going on in your life. Sometimes winter hangs on for a little bit longer, but warmer and better days are coming. I just know it!

So, happy spring, my lovelies! (To my friends in the southern hemisphere, happy fall. And sorry to burst your bubble, but winter is coming for you guys. Haha.)
