I am so sick of trying to make my clothes work for me while nursing! I’m clumsy enough as it is without trying to wrangle with my clothing. This is why I can’t just be a discreet nurser and must use a Hooter Hider. Even with that thing though it is still a pain trying to pull stuff up, unzip, etc. while also keeping hold of a squirmy, grabby, and sometimes upset baby.
I always see this nursingwear company on the back of my Mothering magazines and decided to check it out. Some of their stuff was… well… very mom-ish, but here are some of my finds paired with accessories and other items from various stores. For the other items I tired to either find stuff I already have or stuff that was similar to what I already have. I don’t need to go breaking the bank around here. As far as accessories are concerned though, particularly earings, in all honesty I probably won’t be wearing them because Bean is just so darn grabby lately. I like my ears the way they are thank you very much and would not like having them ripped to shreds as an earing in her hand tears through them.
–Expressiva Fabulous Tie Top in Golden Olive, $36
–AE 77 Straight Jean in Authentic Destroyed Wash, $49.50 Have these jeans, want another pair in a different wash.
–Mossimo Supply Co. Willa Ring Sandals, $14.99 These are my new sandals for the summer.
–Sabina Leather Half Moon Sachel, $245 (I actually already have a similar bag and it was a gift so it didn’t cost me anything!)
–Triple Leather Bird Charm Bracelet, $28
–Glass Cluster Flower Earings, $16
I was going to do a bunch of these, but I don’t really have time to play with it and all my other ideas are basically variations on that first one using these tops:
