MOTIVATION

6 Sep

Iris-and-ink
It's a boring Friday night in (We are preparing for a wedding tomorrow which means I need to make sure i'm rested) and the football is on, so I am doing a spot of virtual shopping. Nothing else for it.

Instantly love this, the perfect leather dress by Iris and Ink. (I have been looking for the one for ages.) Perhaps not the most suitable maternity attire but definitely motivation to get back to pre-pregnancy shape after #2 arrives. Think I might just get it so I have something to work towards....I quite like those blue boots too.

LOVE MILK

4 Jun

Matlilda
For me remaining stylish whilst breastfeeding was even more of a struggle that during pregnancy. I nursed A until she was seven months old - that's a long time and required some serious outfit planning! (I was not one to sit at home shy. (My girlfriends and I (also with small babies) could often be found in Harvey Nichols fifth floor breastfeeding as an example. With this in mind I also had to be dressed the part. However few and far between, I did manage to find some nursing wear that was actually chic. Such brands were my lifesaver.

One such brand is LOVE MILK. You might have ... Read More
