guest post: outfitting summer (for a new, nursing mom)

during my maternity leave, I asked a few of my favorite mamas and mamas-to-be to kindly step in with some fun guest posts to keep you company

Hi there!  This is Ashley with Hither Thither and Baby Mine.  I’ve been following along throughout Alyson’s pregnancy, looking forward to meeting her little man and picking up any tips I could along the way for when our little fella makes his debut this summer!

While I know those first weeks might mean reaching for comfy yoga pants and nursing tanks, here’s an outfit I’m adding to my summer wish-list that might help a new, nursing mom feel a little more glamorous.

The requirements? Nothing silky or dry-clean only. Something with easy access. And a summer-weight scarf for the option of added modesty.

The inspiration? An APC tunic dress ensemble from Totokaelo. I’ve added a hat for camouflaging unwashed hair; dark sunglasses for hiding tired eyes–and cool factor; and drawstring pants in case the chambray shirt-dress feels a little short some days. (Here’s a pretty but practical nude nursing bra to pair with it–or a lacier number from Elle Macpherson’s line.)

Congratulations, Alyson and Levi–
I’m so excited for both of you!

    Great outfit. Button-downs are so popular right now, I buy men’s small (or big boys L) and wear w. leggings. Not nursing anymore but a very versatile outfit for nursing and beyond.

    That’s a sharp, sharp look. Nice and tailored and minimalist. :)
