So while catching up with a friend of mine the weekend who is a mother of 3 and currently breastfeeding her toddler, proclaimed she doesn’t get time nor has energy to shop and usually opts for clothes that are more practical for nursing. She said she would love if someone could do it for her so putting the fashionista in me to use, I quizzed her on what she needs from her clothes and her wants as a busy Mam. Being a mother is hard work and I understand that most of the time the kids come first.
So with this in mind I decided to pick her out some on trend outfits for Autumn winter that were
1. Affordable 2. Practical 3. Versatile 4. Durable
I did a bit of research and from my experience I felt the quality in H & M clothing is great. I picked her out 3 outfits keeping in mind that she could use any of the items and mix them up herself or add other pieces in her wardrobe to these looks.
Casual Day time Outfit
Basic Nursing Vest tops
So a breastfeeding mother needs to be able to feed her baby at all times some outfits don’t allow this but H&M have these great nursing tops which basically come in a pack of two are great as the have a clip down at the front too and can be themed with anything.
Over sized Check shirt
Flannel is making a big comeback for this Autumn Winter I picked this colour because I think it’s very versatile and Green is a big colour this season. Also it can be worn open or buttoned down.
With the evenings getting chillier these tube scarfs are handy as you can thrown them over your head and remove them easily.I picked a charcoal grey as to add some colour other than black to the outfit.
Indigo blue is always a nice classic choice plus it can be mixed with so much in your wardrobe.I opted for high Waisted jeans as they re more flattering and especially for nursing Mammys wanting to hide their tums (this was a must request with my friend) I think she’s mad but as I want her looking and feeling amazing this is what I took on board. They are only €9.99 so they are not breaking the bank.
Leather Look High top Trainers
The elasticated ankle is great because no laces to tie and they can slip on & off I choose black because they are more dressy and can be mixed with leggings or all black when your having one of those wardrobe malfunction days. The faux leather look is cool. Also for a Mother on the go comfort is a must especially while running around after a toddler.
Lunching it with the girls 💋
Satin Shirt Dress
Army Green is huge this season so I opted for a soft satin shirt dress this is loose fitting and a deep v which can be unbuttoned when needed. It also has a wide back with a box pleat so doesn’t feel restricted.
These jeans are washed worn look with a high waist and gentle tapered legs. They can be themed with a basic top or blouse and heels if you want to dress them up. Or a pair of converse for comfort.
The cream scarf has a mix of pink orange and green which adds some colour to the outfit and can also be great with dressing up darker coloured outfits.
Date night outfit with the hubby ❤
In a burgundy red it’s a soft jersey style top which is loose and can be stretched easily . The gold straps add a bit of femininity to it and dress it up a little . Possibly a Christmas night out outfit too.
Black classic jeans with high Waist and gently tapered legs themed with black heels to dress up or boots or sandals.This are great for the days you want to wear all black and still feel good.
Jacquard Knit Poncho
This is great for throwing over any outfit dress top or casually it’s warm too and will
be great for winter wardrobe. It also can be stretched to your summer wardrobe too for the bbq evenings ☺
So there you have it girls 3 outfits style by me using H&Ms Autumn Winter 2015 collection .
