Dressing for two OOTD

Lately I really find myself dressing for two: myself and my little one. As my body continues to adjust postpartum, my wardrobe options remain limited. Not only do a lot of things fit differently but much of my clothing is breastfeeding unfriendly. The hit of my closet has been a Missoni for Target spacedye dress with stretchy fabric and front button panel. Carol of In Pursuit of Pretty Things gave me the sage advice a while back that drapey cardigans would become really important to my nursing ensembles. She was totally right! not only do they help keep me warm but they offer some potential for additional modesty when I'm wrangling my cover, the baby, and my clothes on the fly.

Speaking of covers, I have two (from Udder Covers... one was handed down to me and the other was bought with a code where I paid only --admittedly exorbitant-- shipping) that are incredibly useful in helping me feel confident leaving my house knowing I can feed her whenever she gets hungry. You can see one of them below:

Here we are at a museum (notice the tiny legs draped on my lap). As an aside, I need to give a shout out to Nordstrom who has the most cushy, lovely set up for breastfeeding shoppers! I knew about their "Women's Lounges" from seeing them on my way to the regular ladies rooms but didn't realize how rare and useful they were until now. It's shocking how many public restrooms lack changing tables! So Nordstrom's plush couches, pillows, separate rooms for diaper changes, and quiet, private spaces make me want to give them my entire shopping budget! I guess some Macys stores also have separate nursing areas so I was really surprised to find nothing at Bloomingdales (who is owned by the same company that owns Macys). Maybe it was just that location? Although you don't always need an entire designated room, sometimes you want that separate space!

You two look very stylish :)  I had two of the Udder Covers, and one of them was that black one.  Their shipping is ridiculous -- I'm sure that's how they're able to offer them for "free"!

I totally love Nordstrom for their thoughtful Mothers' rooms. Bloomingdales here, in San Diego totally sucks - the bathrooms are super nursing-unfriendly.

There's a nursing clothing line that I actually owned a couple pieces from back when I was nursing - and the dresses are both cute and wonderful for nursing in: http://www.dotestudio.com/. The prices are Singporean dollars, I think, so are actually less than USD. My husband's friend's wife is the designer/owner, so if you're interested in ordering from them, let me know and I'll pass on her email. :) She was super nice and easy to work with.

Emelia's already grown so much! You're both looking so well. :D

You two are so gorgeous- and adorably coordinated!  I love that the spacedyed dress has proven to be so wearable- it's a great print.  And I just want to squeeze Emilia's cute little stockinged feet!

A Garment Bag is a very useful travel bag in which one can hang various articles of clothing, as opposed to an ordinary suitcase with folded clothes inside. It is made of durable material, closes with a zipper and often folds in half and has a handle so it can be carried. There are various sizes and types of garment bags which serve different purposes.
