So, here is my challenge for you. We are going to the Lodge at Pebble Beach for Father’s Day. This is a once in a lifetime thing for my husband as jetting off to high-priced golf resorts are not typical for us. We are going to the Tap Room for dinner on Saturday night without our very young kids and the website states it is ‘resort attire.’ What is that exactly? Regardless, I’d love to just take off my mom-mode and get dressed up.A weekend at an 88 year old golf lodge? Resort attire? A bob? I can't be the only one who instantly had a 15 minute long "Gatsby" daydream by all this! Of course, a beaded sheath and fur stole isn't going to work for Jessica. Back to reality! Resort attire these days means something you would wear to a country club; no jeans and nothing too revealing.
We just bought a new house, so the budget is very limited - $150. I do have several weddings to go to this summer, so if it can double for a wedding, I can justify spending more. I am a size 6 with any extra weight sitting in my tummy and I recently chopped my hair into a bob. I’d prefer closed toe or peep-toe shoes since I rarely get the time for a pedicure. I think that’s it.
Dress - Casual enough for a resort and formal enough for a wedding. Super flattering color and tummy hiding sash. This dress is definitely not mom-style but is mom-friendly machine washable.
Shoes - A white wedge from Target for $24. Enough coverage for a faux pedicure.
Clutch - Caning pattern straw clutch for $28.
Earrings - Beaded chandelier earrings are flirty with a short bob.
Jessica is going to be one hot-mom in this outfit! Happy Father's Day indeed ;)
