It’s about that time, y’all.
The end of the school year is just around the corner, and many of you, like me, will be celebrating our children’s milestones.
Last year, it was my son’s graduation from preschool. This year, my daughter is graduating from middle school. She is so pumped, and I’m having a lot of pre-graduation with her.
Every week, it seems there’s something else she needs a new dress for.
I don’t mind all of the shopping because I want her to look and feel her best.
While I’m working overtime to make sure my daughter has everything she needs for her big day, I haven’t forgotten about myself.
I’m going to be greeting loved ones, and meeting school friends’ families, and I’ll be in a lot of pictures with my graduate. Your girl wants to look good, too.
For some reason, I get so overwhelmed when I have to shop for myself. Finding the perfect frock for graduation felt daunting because there are so many options available. I started keeping a list of the most comfortable and stylish graduation dresses for moms.
Yes, that’s right. I put comfort before style.
I want to be able to move around and enjoy my child’s big day without feeling restricted.
And again, I want to look good, too.
How to narrow down your dress options
I want to share my list of graduation dresses for moms to save you some time in your search.
Before you get into the list, though, it might be helpful to narrow down the options by making a few decisions ahead of time about what you want.
Think through the logistics of graduation day. What do you need to accomplish in that dress?
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Consider the weather and the location of the graduation ceremony. You don’t want to be too hot at an outdoor ceremony, or freezing at an indoor graduation that has air conditioning blasting.
- Make sure the dress fits comfortably and you can move. You want to be able to stand up and cheer for your baby without something falling out.
- Select a fabric that can stand up to tons of hugs, sitting for long periods of time and potential stains.
- Wear something that feels like you. There’s going to be so much going on and you want to make sure you feel beautiful and comfortable.
