Travel Style: Pocket Full of Sunshine

Minus the hot weather and sunshine, the other thing I really loved about Charleston was the colorful buildings everywhere. The pastel colored buildings weren't only limited to just Rainbow Row but could be found pretty much everywhere in Charleston. We stayed in the French Quarter so it was easy to find some pops of colors...as well as fun art work on sides of buildings.

Travel Style: Rainbow Row

My husband and I just took our son on his first family vacation! We decided that we wanted to celebrate our 4 year anniversary down in Charleston since we heard nothing but good things about the people, food, and the city. Plus, it was a short flight (a total of 2 1/2 hours)! Austin did really well on his first flight(s) which shocked both of us! Because you never know with a two month old. I really loved this city. I loved how friendly the people of Charleston were and how they were totally cool with a two month old in their establishments. Everyone was nothing but welcoming. We spent our first day in Charleston exploring Rainbow Row and the pier. It's so amazing how much history this city has and how picturesque it all is. It's so charming.

Mom Style: Momista

One thing I didn't want to lose when I became a mom was myself and my style. Sure I have to be more mindful of the clothing I wear...aka can I easily nurse in this? Is it easy to clean? Will baby spit up ruin it? With all that in mind I knew it restricted some clothes that I gravitate too, but also has allowed me to tap more of my boho style, like this Lulu's dress. I absolutely love the flow of this dress and the easy access for nursing. I love that it can easily be paired with a bralette. I like the one that I chose from Aerie to keep it a little more modest for a "mom" look.  Plus it's convertible strapless bra (easier to nurse with no straps). I actually want this bralette in loca verde and morocaan sunset.

Mom Style: Nursing Friendly Dresses

I'm currently exclusively breastfeeding which means strategically picking out clothes that would work for both me and my baby. With that said I don't want to compromise on my style...Plus it's finally warm out which means cute spring/summer dresses. So I've been trying out different styles that are nursing friendly. Here's a mix of nursing dresses and nursing friendly dresses.

NURSING DRESSES:

Jacket: c/o POOF | Dress: Hello Miz Maternity | Sneakers: H&M | Bag: Pottery Barn Kids | Sunglasses: Forever2

I had bought this Hello Miz Maternity dress while still pregnant but never got to wear it while pregnant, but have worn it a couple of times now post. I love that it has the lift up access which makes it easy and quick for nursing. I do however wish I sized up, I don't think my pregnant belly would have even fit into this dress. I bought a small and should have went with a medium. Advice, if you go with this dress size up!

Dress: c/o Pink Blush | Sandals and Sunglasses: Forever21

Pinkblush hands down has been my favorite maternity shop. Cute, affordable, and functional...what more could you want from a boutique? I had gotten this dress with the summer in mind, I mean hello Hawaiian print! The cross function of this dress works perfectly for nursing the little one, plus it looks good pregnant and post pregnancy.

NURSING FRIENDLY STYLES:

I have spent a lot of time online window shopping while nursing Austin since I was excited about buying some new post pregnancy clothing. Except I had to keep in mind my new mom duties, which includes nursing friendly pieces. So with that in mind I looked for dresses that are button downed, criss crossed front, or looser top.

Dress: Lulus | Bralette: Urban Outfitters | Sandals: Old Navy | Sunglasses: Forever21

This Lulu's dress is probably my summer favorite. I love the boho loose feel to it. It's one of those throw on and go dresses. I also love that it looks good with a bralette, which is important as since you know milk leaks.

Button down front dresses are also another convenient style for nursing. Allowing easy access to the boobies without any hassle. Luckily, I already had a couple of these style dresses in my wardrobe which included this denim shirt dress from Madewell (similar styles herehere, and here). Shirt dresses are also perfect for going back to work, since another thing to consider if pumping (if you continue to breastfeed).

Style Guide: Spring Shopping Guide All Under $100


I'm so ready to do some Spring shopping! I'm loving the linen trend this season like the Urban Outfitters linen midi skirt. I'm also craving some boho vibes like the American Eagle wide leg jumpsuit. I have also taken in consideration more nursing friendly features like wrap dresses and button up tops. Now if only the weather will get on board with my mood.
