I just went back and looked at this guest post I wrote (pre-baby) for Alyson about a potential outfit for a nursing mom, and I’m happy to say that I still think it would be a good one! (The one challenge I encountered was that most of my pre-baby button-downs didn’t fit my post-baby chest–at least at first.) That said, this outfit along with some jeans and boots are probably going to be a bit of a uniform these next couple of months.
Still, despite the fact that it has barely dipped below 70, I already have half a dozen questions about how to really be comfortable yet stylish in colder weather. Does this mean I won’t be using my silk longjohn tops? Do I just put away all of my non-cardigan sweaters for the season? Will going under the shirt cease to be as viable an option when he’s six months old? Will my coats work with a carrier? And that’s not even counting questions about dressing him.
Those of you who have been through a winter already, what were your staples? Is the button-down-and-scarf combo going to be all I want to wear? Did you feel like you needed a different kind of coat to keep you warm in spite of lower necklines or the presence of a carrier?
