What Mama Wore




Mama Wore:
Dress: Vintage (a gift from Tom)
T-Shirt - H&M
Jeans: c/o Me&I
Shoes: Cath Kidston 

These silly shoes were so frustrating on Saturday. I had put them in the wash and I'm sure they came out a half size smaller. My feet were dying after my shift at the shop.

Me & I sent me these jeans which I will take better photos of soon (as in not cover half of them with a dress!) I'm very much not a jeans girl but I'm trying to give them another go. I always feel like I have to think that much harder about my outfit when I wear jeans and so for that reason they seem to me much more work than simply pulling on a dress, tights and cardi (my staple). When Me & I asked if I would like a pair of their jeans I thought it would be perfect opportunity to mix up my wardrobe a bit, still I've put them with a dress! 

Perhaps I should be brave and wear them with a shirt? A simple T? I don't know why I find jeans so much hard work, anyone else have this issue? 

The vintage dress is one of my favourites, it doesn't get as much wear as it should as its not nursing friendly and so I only wear it when I know we are not spending a huge amount of time away from the house. I've not yet refused nursing Wilf if he asks (he says 'booboo?' and does the nursing sign) so I'm always I bit worried about being in a situation where he might ask for it and not be wearing the right clothes! 

On that note I'm thinking of writing another breastfeeding post soon (as I seem to every 6 months!) we are approaching 18 months and I thought it might be interesting to cover the ins and outs of breastfeeding a toddler. My friend asked me if I ever felt tied down by breastfeeding still which I think is a valid question and one that I will go into in my post. Do any of you have any questions you might like me to go into? If so please let me know in the comments! Thanks! xo

My whole wardrobe is split into three sections. Pregnancy clothes, breastfeeding clothes and stuff I wore before I was pregnant (non breastfeeding clothes). I own two pairs of jeans, one bought in spain five years ago and the other pair bought in Paris last year. Neither get much wear.

I tend to live in jeans and find dresses to be hard work :)
Looking forward to your breastfeeding post. It's very inspiring to hear that you're still breastfeeding at 18 months. Something I'm aspiring to.

Hey Fritha, thanks for sharing on your blog. It's always lovely to read.

For background, I'm exclusively bf our 4.5 month old and would like to carry on bfing until at least 12 months then see where we're at. How did you motivate yourself to carry on during the tough times? I do enjoy bfing and havent had any problems but to be honest there are times when I feel overwhelmed by the responsibility. Did you ever feel this way and if so, how did you get yourself through it?

Best wishes
Kate

Your hair looks very shiny and healthy - I thought I'd mention that as you always seem to pine for your shiny pregnancy hair :)

Anyway, love the dress but know what you mean about jeans. I haven't got a pair I like at the moment so if anything I'm wearing coloured and floral trousers (which make me look like a children's entertainer but I like them!) x

Jacqui - Yes I know so many people feel the same, I just cant work out how to pair tops and bottoms so they go!
Thats such a nice thing for you to say, I'm sure you will! x

lliska - Ha yes! Mine goes a little like that too, with the breastfeeding - pre pregnancy clothes! Good to hear you agree on the jeans front. I always love your style! xx
