Well, we have almost made it to the weekend, friends!  I am sure that many of you have Mother's Day plans and I hope that you take the time to spoil your mom and treat her to an amazing meal, quality time and shower her with gifts and attention!  She deserves it after all.  Most of you know that I lost my Mama in March,  so this weekend is one that I have been dreading something fierce.  I want so much to be able to speak to my Mama again and just talk about random things, like when I have a bad day or when something exciting happens to me.  It is so easy to take for granted the simple things and I would encourage each of you today to call or hug your Mama.  You can never tell her you love her enough.

One of the things I always did with my Mama was talk shopping and clothes.  We loved to spend hours trying on clothes at the mall and trying to find the perfect outfit or dress for that special occasion, whether it was a gala, work, church or vacation, she always helped me find the right look.  When I got this dress in the mail from Chicwish, I thought she would really like it, but would worry about all that lace covering everything enough. HAHA!

If you are in the market for a gorgeous midi dress, this one is for you!  The flower lace details on top are stunning and make quiet the statement!  I love the fun ruffle that adds some dimension and also covers all the right places too.  I wear this with a strapless and backless sticky bra, but I think it would look okay with a black bra too, just channel your inner celebrity and rock it!  The skirt part of this dress is so unique to me.  It is pleated, which I think adds so much class, but it also has a fun black speckled design on the white/cream skirt portion.  It is absolutely breathtaking!  I paired this dress with some fun Jessica Simpson Strappy Satin Heels and jewelry to finish off the look.  I personally think this dress would be perfect for a wedding, event, the derby, or a cruise look.  It is so classy and elegant!

As a side note, I took most of these photos at my parent's house.  My Daddy came outside and told me to take some in front of his wild honeysuckle (the orange flowers).  He is so proud of it.  And it is even more beautiful in person!  I hope you all have a great rest of your week.  Whew, it is almost Friday!  Remember to love on your Mama; drop me a comment and tell me something you the best piece of advice your Mama ever gave you!
