This year, consider skipping the florist and instead, treat your mum to something she actually wants – a brand new, trendy outfit.
Spoiling the exceptional women in our lives is just the right thing to do but fear not, you don’t have to break the bank on a fashion gift to be able to say “I heart mum”. Surprise your mum, gran, aunt or other important lady in your life with a stylish new outfit and then why not enjoy a lovely afternoon together.
Mother’s Day falls on Sunday and if you’re still searching for the perfect outfit, look no further, because Aberdeen’s Bon Accord offers a range of cute, chic and fashionable clothing.
Boasting more than 80 fashionable retailers, including New Look, Topshop, John Lewis and Quiz, you’re guaranteed to find something you and your mum will love.
Casual coffee date
If you plan on taking your mum on a casual coffee date, then why not treat her to a pair of comfortable jeggings from River Island. You could add a bit of sheer elegance to her outfit with a white organza blouse from Topshop or a floral shirt from Wallis. If she’s all about florals, then she may like the button top decorated in vintage blooms from Oasis, too.
If an afternoon tea is on the cards, then you may want to choose something more smart. We think the black and pink floral print midi dress from Dorothy Perkins – which is an instant spring wardrobe staple – would be perfect. She could pair the dress with black block heels from New Look, which not only look great, but are vegan, too.
And if she just loves the floral skirt trend, then you could have at look in Laura Ashley and Marks & Spencer because both of these offer some stunning pieces.
Treat your special lady to new clothes and a cocktail or two when you take her to a boozy brunch. A vintage-inspired blue dress with a flattering V neck design from New Look would look cute if worn with block heel sandals from New Look and a blush clutch from Dorothy Perkins.
If your mum wore the black denim dress with puff sleeves from Topshop, she could add a pop of colour to her outfit with an eye-catching yellow handbag from River Island.
