Bunnies and bare faces

2As a blogger who is also currently breastfeeding, I really try my hardest never to post outfits that I am not actually wearing — say, outfits I can only wear in the three hours between feedings because they’re high-necked dresses/really stiff tee shirts/not button up/not stretchy… whatever the case, I only post those outfits if I actually wore them for an event (wedding) or to church.

I’ve seen a few new-mom bloggers who continue to wear dresses with high necks and no way to breastfeed in them, and while I totally get wanting to dress up even for a few hours, it’s just not realistic! I prefer to stay real.

So today I’m sharing this outfit both because I’m super excited that the tee shirts I got from Oasap this week are breastfeeding-friendly (aka super stretchy, and easy to pull up or pull the neck down), and because I decided I should share the other part of me that’s super realistic this week: no makeup.


Well, okay. Barely any makeup. I have concealer under my eyes and right around my nose. But that’s it, I promise!

This week with moving and packing and (yesterday) a somewhat needy/cranky baby, dressing up and putting on makeup has been at the bottom of my list! 6Yesterday was particularly exhausting for me, since Asa was the crankiest I have ever seen him, but then I got a package in the mail with a few cute tee shirts and earrings and some crazy fun sunglasses, so I decided I needed to at least make half an effort to wear them! I think this bunny tee is my favorite of the three I ordered; I love Oasap’s tee shirts, seriously; the three I got yesterday are all this great stretchy material that I prefer to cotton blends, and the neck is easily wide enough that I can feed Asa while wearing it.

Plus, I mean… how cute is the bunny?     119 I love that the bow is an actual bow and not a printed one. Plus, the bunny is printed on really well, and feels nice. You know how some screen tees just have a gross feeling? This one isn’t like that. The space with the print is slightly rougher than the rest of the shirt, but I think a wash or two will dissolve that and leave it soft and nice! And the roughness isn’t sticky like some prints can be, so I don’t mind!10

I’m so excited to be done packing and moving. I actually really like packing; it makes it much easier for me to organize and get rid of things while I box them up, and then when I unpack it’s easy to neatly put things away!

I have a pile of clothes to try on or toss now, after going through my closet and evaluating/packing the 52 dresses hanging there (haha, and I have a few more that weren’t hanging, oops! Don’t tell my husband.). Today I hope to get most of the upstairs packed, tomorrow I’ll pack everything downstairs, and Saturday… we move!

And then Sunday is my birthday! It’s a busy week. 3

Yes. I’m still wearing my maternity jeans. Why? Because they are awesomely comfortable, and I never have to worry about anything when I bend over. So, you know. I love them.

I hope you are all having a good week! Happy Thursday!

    Aw this bunny shirt is super cute with the actual bow on it! I love that. It’s a-okay to be super comfy once in a while too – or a lot of the time. Either way! Maybe those other mom bloggers aren’t breast feeding and that’s why they’re wearing high-necked dresses? I like that you wear what you actually wear everyday in real life though.

      I know a few of them are breastfeeding, but the others I’m not sure! I mostly just think of the hassle it is to wear something you can’t breastfeed in and wonder how they do it, haha!

    You are so beautiful, Sweetie. The makeup just accentuates it. I love no make-up! I am glad you are not shy about people seeing your naked face! : )
