Do you ever obsess over what to wear on work occasions?

Or on events like mother’s day, or your child’s birthday party? Or even to Church?

Well, that makes two of us.

These are the kind of occasions where it’s not appropriate to wear something formal or even too casual. These dresses are versatile enough for various events such as spring work dress, wedding weekend attire, spring and summer vacations, running errands, office wear, spring lunch date, wine tasting trip, weddings, anniversaries, date nights, formal affairs, and even as a beach/swim coverup.

So, what looks nice and stylish that is right in the middle?

As your fashion go to gal pal, I have all the answers!

What did I do? I went on a shopping spree to find affordable nice clothing for my beautiful women over 40.

And here I will give you a complete guide to style them like a pro.

These dresses will work on all my lean, petite, and plus sized girls available in so many sizes.

So without further ado, Let’s get started!

The Somerset Maxi Dress 

Priced at $168. This dress is a treat to look at in any pattern they bring it out in. The floral details here really pop up on its ivory backdrop. The fabric is cotton and the v-neckline, along with its figure-hugging silhouette, gives it an air of elegance and classy appearance.

The waistline is smocked to give some shape by accentuating your waist without the need of a belt. The ankle length gives it a very ‘dressy’ look for a casual event.

You can choose from many pattern and color variations that they have available. And the color combos do change based when you buy! It is constantly changing throughout the spring and summer year after year. It is always a favorite closet staple.

Pair this feminine flowy dress with nice matching strappy heels, and voila! You’re ready for anything life throws at you. Or add a stunning bag for a eye catching pop! Oh, and it has pockets! Who doesn’t want a dress with pockets?

Reformation Tagliatelle Denim Midi Dress


This is a very soft and unique take on a denim dress. Made of regeneratively grown cotton fabric and Tencel, it is very lightweight an ideal pick for summer denim.

The waistline is smocked which means you can flaunt your beautiful curves. This dress also comes in a variety of prints, including tropical, vibrant, blue and black patterned, floral, chartreuse and white woodland, and more. I did find that this runs small so size up one or even two.

You can pair it with your gold slides, flat strappy sandals, or some nice espadrilles, depending on where you’re going. The straps are not adjustable, it is a bit low cut – so built in sexy flair, and there are pockets!

I love minimal gold jewelry for such looks, but you can go with a silver one too. If you want to take it up a notch, carry a shoulder bag along and match that with your shoes.

Farm Rio Bright Farm Strapless Linen Dress


We all love a midi to maxi silhouette, don’t we?

And this dress is to die for.

The fabric is a lux linen viscose blend and it feels amazing. It just drapes so nicely and is very forgiving in the mid section, which is a feature I always love to run in to. It flatters different body types, including moms, making it a versatile choice for everyone.

The top has some silicon in it to help keep the top up and it also comes with adjustable straps that you can add or remove very easily depending on your preference that day.

The color scheme is very summery and trendy, as Farm Rio usually is.

The best thing about it is the unique drop waist cut and the fabric covered buttons, it just gives a handmade high end finish.

Now, this is not a dress, this is romance. I mean, you can wear it to a nice date, or go on a walk under the streetlights.

You can pair it with chunky sandals, or a pair of heels or some nice wedges too. The options are literally endless.

The Somerset Maxi Dress in Canary


Priced at $168, this one comes in 2 variations.

This soft buttery yellow they are calling Canary is one of a kind. The ruffled maxi silhouette gives it a gorgeous and timeless look. The fabric is cotton and is very soft and lightweight which is ideal for the summer.

It has side slant pockets and its v-neckline is classic and elegant. Yellow is a wonderful summer color and this shade goes so well with so many colors it is practically a neutral itself. We are so grateful for your awesome support in helping us continue our mission. Great to wear to church, or a parent-teacher meeting, brunch, or a day out shopping.

Try it with some simple slides for a more casual look or you can wear it with heels, wedges, sandals, or pumps to give it some umph.

Sleeveless Square-Neck Maxi Dress


This is sure to be a summer staple.

The flowy feminine look, the classic floral design and the sweet neckline and cap sleeves are everything on this pretty dress.

The fabric is a mix of viscose and nylon, so a lux feeling material that drapes nicely. There are two color variations to choose from and both are gorgeous. The bodice is smocked and the neckline has a tie detailing at the back. As a reference, the fit is true to size, the style is perfect for both casual and semi-formal occasions, and the fabric is breathable and comfortable.

It is delicately feminine and you can pair it with a bag that goes with the same vibe and strappy flats or heels both would work well with it.

The ankle strap sandals are another way to go. You can wear it on mother’s day, on easter, on a dinner, or on vacation, but top it with a blazer and this could be summer workwear too!

As you can see, fashion, modesty, and affordability are the words that can be used in the same sentence!
