I thought about a lot of things when I was pregnant with Lawson, but the clothing I would wear when I was breastfeeding wasn’t one of them. I wish I would have given it more thought, especially since I breastfed Lawson for 8 months and Sybil almost a full year and counting. Clothing, particularly nursing friendly dresses, can be hard to find.
I wear a lot of button down shirts to accommodate nursing on the go, but sometimes I get sick of them and want to wear a dress. This Loyal Hana dress, now on sale, has been a go to during pregnancy (worn here and here) and afterwards. It has zippered openings that are easy to access for nursing. I’ve had so many people ask me about it. They never guess it has zippers for nursing! It also has pockets. More and more I feel pockets should be a requirement for dresses!
Shirt and wrap dresses are other great options for nursing. I love this printed shirt dress from J. Crew Factor (also comes in petites), this chambray shirt dress, and this short sleeve shirt dress (comes in navy and green). This floral midi wrap dress and this ruffle wrap dress are two of my favorites. The best part about all of these is they can be worn whether you’re breastfeeding or not!

SHOP THE LOOK:
Coming to you this Saturday morning with a bonus weekend post! I ordered a few things from Gap for Sybil this week. Since they’re all on sale, I wanted to share them before sizes run out. I love a good baby girl clothes sale. Almost everything is less than $10! She needed leggings since it’s cooler in Minnesota than we’re used to in Arizona. I love these leopard print leggings and you can’t go wrong with basic pink (with the cutest bow in the back).
I couldn’t resist this little eyelet flutter top. She already has the cutest chambray bloomers to go with it.
We were at Carter’s to grab Lawson a pair of pajamas since he’s grown out of the 24 months size and couldn’t resist this floral jumpsuit for Sybil. It’s only $10! Won’t it look cute with a little sweater over it come fall?

Happy Monday! Every Sunday I spend time planning activities and meals for the week ahead. It makes a new week seem a little less daunting. If you saw my Instagram stories this morning, you know we have a bad case of the Monday’s. Sometimes nothing you do can prepare you for a rough day.
This outfit is filled with basics in my favorite neutrals. A white blazer, grey tee, black pumps. I’d wear it out to dinner with friends or to work (switching out the distressed jeans for a pair of cropped pants). Throw the blazer over a maxi dress in the summer to keep the AC chill away. I got this white blazer at H&M a few years ago, but there’s a nearly identical version on sale at J. Crew for nearly the same price and better quality.

As promised, here are my favorites from the Nordstrom anniversary sale for men and kids! I had my brother in mind when picking through the men’s stuff. He requested short sleeve shirts so there’s a bunch of those. :) Similar to the women’s sale, it’s a great time to buy a new pair of jeans and invest in a pair of shoes. They usually include a few from Cole Haan and this year was no exception (I ordered these for Jim).

I think the baby gear is the best part of the kids sale. We have the jogging stroller and LOVE it. If only it were on sale in a double! Lawson uses these sippy cups all the time. I really want to get the pink and grey for Sybil. I picked up these Nike sneakers for Lawson yesterday. They are so stinking cute on him! He didn’t want to take them off.
