Sartorially speaking, I find winter to be the best nursing season, as the need for layering makes it much easier to diversify your everyday wardrobe. Wearing your trusty black nursing top again? Just change your sweater or your blazer and suddenly you look like you may in fact not be wearing exactly what you wore yesterday.
Some days, however, you may be looking for something altogether different than your go-to maternity jeans w/ black nursing top combo. Investing in a Mothers en Vogue Dana Nursing Dress is a surefire way to spice up your winter nursing wardrobe and, let’s be honest, make you feel pretty and attractive during what might be a tough few months in the appearance department. Most importantly, this is a pretty dress with 3/4 sleeves and a full, feminine skirt. Almost as importantly, it flatters across the midsection with ruching that works wonders when paired with your Spanx. It’s also available in purple and black through London maternity boutique Blossom Mother and Child. The nursing access is convenient and it’s machine washable. It looks great with knee-high boots and a short winter jacket.
Sound like a no-brainer? It is. I have nothing negative to say about this dress, except that I wish it were easier to find in the United States. You can’t have everything.
I also want to mention today that starting today, PF’s favorite jewelry designer, Gemma Redux, is donating 30% of all sales to Hurricane Sandy relief when you use promotional code “SandyRelief” at checkout. The money will go directly to Mayor Bloomberg’s Fund To Advance New York City. Gemma Redux’s offices are currently closed due to the storm, so it may take longer than usual to receive your pieces, but that’s OK with us. I, like all of you, am in complete shock over the conditions my friends and family are living in throughout the tri-state area and am grasping for any way I can think of to help. Buying gorgeous jewelry seems an easy lift.
