Anyone who’s ever breastfed can tell you that it tends to limit your wardrobe options, so when you find something that makes you feel and look good, you want to shout it from the mountain tops! This $89 bird print chiffon dress from Figure 8 Maternity is one of those wardrobe pieces. It’s kind to my postpartum body since it’s not figure-hugging, and the black gives an overall slimming effect. It also has breastfeeding access through a hidden center slit with a sneaky zipper so I can keep my hungry little boy happy anytime, anywhere. Figure 8 Maternity has kindly given us a 10% off coupon code to use sitewide — ‘BONDGIRLGLAM2017‘. They also have a storefront on Amazon if you want to use your Prime membership!
I also found this $39.99 maternity dress that is pretty similar but without the nursing feature!
I styled this black chiffon dress with some of the comfiest heels I own, these suede wrap beauties from Pour la Victoire. I have many pairs of shoes from this brand and have been a fan for 10+ years. They are both beautiful and well made. We’re invited to a wedding in a few months, and I’m thinking of wearing these heels since they’re so comfortable. I’ve definitely planned outfits starting with the shoes before, so we’ll see if I can find a wedding guest dress that’s fancy enough for the occasion and nursing-friendly. If anything, this outfit without the hat will totally work.
Lastly, I want to share my most recent designer bag purchase — this fabulous Gucci Marmont bag in the most beautiful taupe leather and gold hardware. I bought it for myself kind of as a push present, ha! I went with the bigger size because I need room for my long trifold wallet, iPhone 6, lipstick of the day, my Louis Vuitton key holder case, a few diapers, travel wipes, and maybe a snack. It’s a little more delicate than I’m used to; my last designer bag purchase was my Chloe Hudson cross body bag, which is a lot more durable in terms of leather, hardware, and even interior. It’s a nice change, though, because it makes me feel ultra femme. Maybe one day I can buy myself a Chanel Boy bag, but in the meantime, this Medium GG Gucci Marmont 2.0 shoulder bag will be my version of that kind of iconic flap bag that’s wearable both day and night.
