This started out as an Easter Outfit Roundup.
Two weeks ago.
Life, you know?
So, while it's not too late to get *some* of these things in time for Easter, it's probably too late to get most of it. And if you're like me and tend to get paralyzed with indecision and do ALL the research when it comes time to buy new clothing? Well, I've done your research for you!
At least, I've done your research if you're looking for somewhat preppy, full-skirted, fairly practical, nursing-friendly (with the right shirt, if you're going with a skirt) clothes!
What can I say, I'm kind of a niche blogger.
Anyway, I was looking back at old Easter pictures for ideas on what to wear. Andrew wears the same seersucker suit every year, so our style kind of revolves around that.
|Banana Republic dress that requires rather a lot of uncomfortable maneuvering to be nursing-friendly, but Cecilia was 14 months at this point so she wasn't nursing all that often.|
|Shabby Apple shirt dress - perfect for nursing!|
|eShakti button-down dress with cropped sweater - also works great for nursing!|
The girls and John Paul are already covered because I bought them wedding clothes over the summer that I knew would still fit by Easter. And I may very well just end up wearing the same thing as last year, but... If I had my pick? Here's what I love:
If I had unlimited funds, I would snap up that Boden shirt dress in a second! As it is though, the price is a little steep and I'm hoping for a sale. The Mille Skirt is my absolute favorite but I think I already have too many skirts in that color to justify a purchase... And I actually ordered that Polka Dot Swing Dress (in navy) and it was perfect for hiding a tummy and the neckline is nice and stretchy for easy nursing. But I've got kind of meaty arms, and the elastic on the sleeves was just too tight for me.
What I'm really tempted to do is get some fabric and try my hand at making this skirt but I just don't know if I'll have time... Decisions, decisions!
What are you looking forward to wearing this spring? I'm excited to break out some of my favorites soon!
