I’m kind of having a hard time figuring out where to begin this blog post. Originally when I started writing it I wanted it to be about the outfits that Molly and I are wearing. Mine because I think this top is a great option for nursing moms and Molly’s look because it’s just one of my favorite outfits on her ever! I got it from Nordstrom, duh, I buy everything there. They have everything and their return policy is the best so I can try things on at home and easily return what I don’t want in the mail. Which is particularly helpful with kids clothes. When I buy Molly stuff online I never know if it will fit, and forget going to the mall and having her try things on. That would never happen! As any parent knows. Do kids stores even have dressing rooms? I honestly don’t think they do. So I buy a lot of her clothes at Nordstrom online and then return whatever doesn’t fit. Easy peasy. If you’re a parent looking for an easy way to shop for your kids, I highly suggest checking out their kids section.
Anyway, with spring coming up I thought this dress was the perfect little transition dress for her. As you can see, we went to the beach the other day and it was warm enough for me to wear a T-shirt but Molly was slightly under the weather so I wanted to cover her up a little bit more. This sweatshirt dress and these tights did the trick and she looked extra cute in them (I got her a size 2T FYI).
And how stinking cute is her bow?! I do not know why I waited this long to put my daughter in an oversize bow. Something about it makes the outfit instantly seem extra cute and more put together. The exact color she has isn’t available in a single pack anymore but they have a bunch of other colors that you can choose from if you only want one bow. Or if you want to buy 4 of the bows you can buy the multi-pack and get the exact color she has.
And of course we are both in Converse. You guys know I’ve worn Converse forever and honestly as soon as I found out I was pregnant with a little girl, I knew we were going to wear matching Converse together. Our Converse are identical here but her little pink high-tops just scream childhood and look adorable on her.
Again forgive me for how all over the place this blog is, but I also really want to tell you guys about my outfit (also from Nordstrom) because I think that my $29 top is absolutely perfect for breastfeeding mothers, and I think I am officially done breastfeeding, so this might be my last post about breastfeeding friendly clothes (keep reading and I’ll explain). It’s super affordable at only $29 and light weight so it’s great for spring and summer. The buttons in the front make it easy to unbutton to nurse, and honestly the material is so stretchy that if you’re OK with a stretched out neck you could even just pull it down to nurse. I’m trying not to do that with my clothes as much anymore because I stretched out the neck of so many of my T-shirts doing that. But since this top has buttons, it makes it the perfect nursing top even though it’s not a nursing top. And if you don’t have kids and/or aren’t nursing, it’s just a really cute top for only $29.
And last but not least, I lost it when I found this hat! I don’t know why I never thought of this but I didn’t think you could get different sizes in hats like this unless you went to a custom hat maker. But what I absolutely love about my hat is that it comes in sizes extra small to large.
I don’t know if you guys know this about me but I have an absolutely massive head! It’s honestly really hard for me to find hats that fit. Or I have to wear the hat on the back of my head for it to stay on. But I got a large in this hat and it fits great! If anything it’s slightly big, which I really love because I’ve never had that problem with a hat before. Ha! So if you ever had an issue finding a hat that fits your head, I highly suggest this one because it comes in so many sizes.
Also, random side note, you HAVE to check out these $39 jeans– I just bought a pair and will let you know what I think!
Anyway, back to my top. The reason I wanted to get this blog up today is because this might be my last post about breastfeeding friendly tops (don’t worry, plenty more blogs about cute kids clothes to come!) because I’m officially done breastfeeding. If you guys saw on my Instagram story this morning, then you know that I’ve got a biter on my hands with Riley. He bit me so much the past few days that I’m bleeding when I pump and the milk looks like strawberry milk because there’s so much blood in it. Sorry to be so graphic but it’s just the truth. I wasn’t planning to stop breastfeeding so it’s a bit emotional for me and I’ll write more about it later, but I just wanted to get this post up today and fill you guys in on what’s going on with me. I still plan on pumping for a little while but I’m not sure how much longer. Anyway, I didn’t buy this outfit because it was breastfeeding friendly, I bought it because it was super fordable and cute so luckily I’ll still be wearing it all the time.
I’ll keep you guys posted on how the transition goes. Wish me luck! Any advice is appreciated!
Also for those asking. I will link Molly’s jacket from my insta stories this morning here! She loooooves it! Once we take it off she just stares at the rainbow on the back. Its her favorite thing right now. She’s wearing a 2T.
Thanks you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post! Looooove me some Nordstrom!
