I never thought I’d be here this spring, still breastfeeding. I never thought I’d be breastfeeding a toddler, full stop. But here we are, still breastfeeding at nearly two and a half years old. My poor tired boobs are probably ready to stop but my feisty tot is determined the time hasn’t come yet, so on we soldier. This means that, yet again, I’m tied to breastfeeding outfits for spring this season. Dresses with buttons, pinafores, tops and skirts or my faithful culottes – if it has easy boob access then I’m in.
Seeing as trawling the internet for breastfeeding outfits for spring has been my most recent obsession, I thought I may as well share some of my finds with you in a post. So here we go…
In my opinion, you can’t beat a bit of denim. I particularly love a denim dress at this time of year, when it’s not quite warm enough to wear anything too light and flippy but (sometimes) too hot for full on jeans and jumpers. A denim dress sits somewhere in the middle. Plus, you can wear them with tights. However, as much as I love the denim numbers above, I think the red Evangeline dress in the middle has to be my favourite. I love the loose cut – this will be perfect for holiday. The cut is also really flattering, ideal if (like me) you’d prefer not to draw attention to a less than toned set of non-existent abs.
The top I’m wearing in the very top picture is this one by Joules and I love it. It’s a patterned harbour print and adds a lovely spring splash of colour to a pair of jeans (you can see it in action in this post too). Joules have some beautiful tops in at the moment, full of colour and pretty floral patterns which seem so fitting for this time of year. While we’re on the subject of Breton stripes and harbour prints, I ADORE this top at Joanie Clothing. It’s definitely going to be ordered and packed for our trip to Paris next month!
All of these tops would go well with a pair of jeans – skinny, boyfriend, cropped, whatever. Or when the weather gets warmer a midi skirt or a pair of culottes. I love the fact they cover the tops of the arms which makes them better for the inbetween weather we’re likely to have here in the UK for some time yet.
Which is your favourite?
P.S. If you’re interested in my (very honest) thoughts about breastfeeding a toddler, then you can watch this video I made on the subject over on my YouTube channel.
P.P.S. HAPPY FRIDAY!!
