Springtime Lace

I’ve been living in jeans and tops as of late (I know… let me tell you something you didn’t already know, right?). I love the ease they provide. The versatility they afford. The effortless look it lends itself to. Yet, the other day, the weather was beautiful (following one of a small bunch of rainy weekends) and I was heading out for the afternoon. I initially pulled for my favorite distressed white denim and new camisole, but decided that I wanted to wear something a little different. Enter this pretty pink lace dress.

I’ve avoided dresses for a little while, not because I don’t like them (I love a good casual dress), but because they aren’t the easiest to wear with a mini one (especially when you’re breastfeeding). So, deciding that I wasn’t going to let that hold me back, I grabbed a pair of shorts and headed out. No, the shorts weren’t meant to be part of the outfit, they were simply meant to allow me to nurse in public. You gotta do what you gotta do, right? I couldn’t have been happier… the lace cut-out details were the perfect match for the blue skies, mild temperatures, and tree lined streets. To make it a little more casual friendly, I tossed on my favorite kicks and utility jacket… which came in handy when the temps started to drop later in the afternoon!

    So pretty! So you wore the shorts under your dress so you could pull the dress up and nurse her? I have been avoiding so many dresses because I know they won’t be easy to feed in (7.5 months pregnant with number 2 and already shopping for post baby!). I will start buying these dresses if this trick works!

      Oh no! I didn’t wear them the whole time! When I wear dresses, I bring the shorts with me and put them on and then nurse. When I nurse I usually have access to a restroom so I put them on there. Sorry if that was confusing. Hope that helps though and good luck with the end of your pregnancy!
