Having a baby is a weird thing. I mean, it’s amazing and exhausting because you know, you get a baby at the end of the forty odd weeks, but it does a weird thing to a person’s sense of style. Pre-baby you’re confident (mostly) about what you like to wear and what you’re comfortable in and what looks good on your body. Post-baby you’re uncomfortable in your skin for a little while, your lumpy and saggy where you didn’t used to be lumpy and saggy, and you (possibly) have to wear super unsexy maternity bras that leave awful lines under your tops and have straps as wide as a man’s belt. It’s great, let me tell you. You feel like you’ve forgotten how to shop for clothing that isn’t maternity wear and suddenly you don’t have to wear clothing to accommodate a huge belly anymore. It’s a confusing time.
I gave birth at the end of November, and once we got through the first month and Christmas and everything I realised that the sales would be a good time to start searching for a few new pieces to add to my wardrobe that suit breastfeeding on the go and make me feel a little on-trend while I wait for my body to go back to its normal shape (please please please). I started with shoes, since my feet haven’t changed shape, then worked my way up, buying online and in stores.
