The search is over - for the Mother of the Groom dress that is

So when your 47 year old son is marrying his sweetie of 20 years by throwing a big outdoor party (an "I Do BBQ") in hot weather what do you wear? I have been on the hunt and finally found this at Macy's 4th of July sale and I'm done! Well except for shoes and a tiny bag lol.

I think I could even toddler granddaughter wrangle in this if they bring her and certainly wear it on other occasions.

Edited to add that then I found the perfect pashmina at the local consignment store!

  1. That is a perfect dress for an outdoor party and I love that your 47 year old son is marrying his sweetie. A white hat with wide brim would keep you cool.

  3. Pretty dress. I have been having a terrible time finding dresses, or any clothes for that matter. Mine are all getting so out of style, but what I find around here is just not pretty. You hit the jackpot with this. You look so nice and that color is very becoming. Happy BBQ and Happy early birthday!

    1. Thanks. I was delighted to find the pashmina and is it a lighter color in the middle so adds some interest.
