You know, it’s funny how I thought at one point that my wardrobe was overflowing with clothes. A lot of them clothes I’ve had since high school but nonetheless taking up space hanging there, begging to be worn. When Kaliah was born back in March I quickly realized just how little clothing I really did have. Or, clothing I could actually wear. It’s not that those clothes don’t fit anymore because believe it or not, they do, but virtually none of my tops or dresses are nursing-friendly.
went am still sorta going through the frumpy postpartum stage where sweatpants and tank tops become your best friends. Breastfeeding at home–no problem. I have a lot less to worry about when it comes to modesty issues in the privacy of my own home, but going out in public is a whole new venture considering I exclusively pumped with my first kiddo. Thankfully, Pink Blush maternity offers trendy maternity clothing that not only works for you expecting mamas out there but for those of us that have delivered and continue to breastfeed.
Now we are heading into what is probably going to turn out to be a short fall here in Idaho and right into winter. No longer will I be able to wear the nursing tanks and maxi dressed I’ve acquired over the summer, and at first I felt like I was going back to square one with my nursing wardrobe. Then I got the opportunity to work with Pink Blush and this dark denim jacket was just screaming my name.
Not only does it wear well over a nursing tank for when I leave the house, but it really compliments other pieces in my wardrobe, including an amazing grey/silver lace dress I found at a local secondhand store. The cropped style is perfect for a growing belly and also helps to add some length to the torso area, which is awesome for us short gals 😉
Breastfeeding Made Easy.
Instead of investing in a ton of specialty maternity clothes that don’t last that long, buy a few pieces that will transition with your changing body. One of the main reasons I love the sweaters and jackets from Pink Blush is that I can wear them while pregnant, while nursing, and even long after baby is becoming a toddler.
All in all, this jacket is my 4th item from Pink Blush, including the items I purchased during my last pregnancy and my other three (a sweater, knit cardigan and a maxi dress) are all holding up and look as nice as they did when they first arrived. I can say with pretty high confidence that I’ll have this jacket for years to come.
