Ruched Tank Dress Outfit
Hello, hello! We’re back to safe topics today — Mother’s Day gift ideas (and not a swimsuit in sight!) I’m teaming up with Nordstrom to share gift ideas for the moms in your life, inspired by this spring outfit.
This ruched tank dress is a great throw-on-and-go dress for summer. It also comes in black, grey, and red persimmon, but I thought the olive heather was fun and different. For size reference, I’m wearing the medium. It’s definitely a body-con style, so it’s not for everyone, but it’s a great price if you’re looking for a fun, casual dress to throw on this summer.
I wore this long linen cardigan over top. Long cardigans are trending right now, and I like them because they’re both flattering and practical. They create a long, lean line that is slimming, and this one is lightweight enough to wear well into summer. It comes in 4 neutral color choices. I also have it in black.
These Sam Edelman thong sandals are a summertime classic, and they come in tons of color options. I have them in pink from last year, and this year I picked them up in this shiny gold. I love how the gold shoes play into the gold accessories elsewhere in the outfit. I’m sure I’ll be wearing them a lot this summer.
They’re fairly comfortable for a flat sandals; there is even some light padding in the footbed. They do run a tad small. I usually wear a size 8 in sandals, but I have these in the 8 1/2. At $59, they’re a good price for a leather sandal, and if you watch them, they go on sale sometimes.
For a more personal gift idea, the initial pendant that I’m wearing is one of my go-to necklaces. It’s a great casual piece to throw on with a t-shirt, but you can also wear it with a dress like I am showing here.
I’m obsessed with this Sole Society tote, and I think it would make a fun Mother’s Day gift. It’s so roomy and classy with the tassel detail.
Finally, Alex and Ani bracelets always make nice gifts, and they range from $28-38 so they’re quite affordable. I like how you can choose one that has a personal meaning. I like to add to my collection when I’m on vacation.
Whether you’re buying for your mom, sister, grandma, daughter, or bestie, Nordstrom has you covered. Plus they have the best return/exchange policy if your gift doesn’t quite hit the mark.
What’s on your Mother’s Day wish list this year? (Besides perhaps a nap or a day off from household chores… LOL!)
