About 90% of my clothing choices are based on comfort and functionality. I’ve always been a comfort dresser…when I was 10 years old, I had this faded tie-dyed t-shirt that I really wanted to wear every single day with a pear of stretchy pants. And the functional dresser came out when I became a mom. Will it expand with my growing baby belly? There’s a chance I’ll buy it. And can I nurse in it, too? I’ll take one in every color!
I haven’t worn dresses much since I had Zoe (24 months ago) because, well, it’s hard to nurse in public in a dress, and it’s hard to find a beautiful, nursing-friendly dress. I’ve been really conscious of the fact that I’m a nursing mom and pretty much just gave up on dresses. But a few weeks ago I actually put on a dress and left the house for an event with Naomi, my nursing babe. It wasn’t until I arrived at the dinner that I realized I had worn a dress and I had to nurse Naomi. I panicked and ended up having to excuse myself, find my car, nurse, and then return. I hadn’t even remembered I had a nursing baby while I was getting dressed. Serious #mombrain.
But now I’ve found this perfect, mom-friendly little black dress. When Kinwolfe reached out to me about partnering, I was immediately drawn to their clothing line. Their pieces are designed for wearing before, during, and after baby. Brilliant! This dress has a nifty little zipper down the front that you can discreetly zip down when babe needs to eat, and then quickly zip back up when she’s finished. No fussing, no fumbling over buttons, only one hand is needed. And it doesn’t look like a maternity or nursing mom dress. It’s tailored to perfection, and the little cut out detail on the back of the shoulders is gorgeous. And I love that it’s a simple, silk dress. I can dress it up with black heels, like I did here. 5-minute makeup, 1-minute low bun, and I’m set for an evening out. And I can dress it down with brown booties and a sweater, which is what I’ll do this Friday for a winemaker’s field supper I’ll be styling. Super grateful to Kinwolfe for thinking of us mamas who are still having babies and still want to look good.
