Well, first of all. Holy wow. Nursing boobs. I think that I needed to reconsider my support with this dress, but eh. Hindsight is 20/20 (especially when you have picture proof) and…who cares, because I felt SO FRIKKIN’ HAWT it doesn’t even matter.
At first, I was a little self conscious and hesitant about wearing it at all. I mean, the boob issue and then I just…well, I’m a MOM. What business do I have wearing something so sexy? Well, I went with it anyways…and ya know what? It felt great. I didn’t even end up caring that my nursing boobs weren’t in tip-top shape for it…and my husband didn’t complain too much. 😉
I think there comes a time when caution just has to be throw to the wind, because life is too short. You have a holiday party to go to and ummmm whether you’re pregnant, nursing or postpartum…you deserve to feel like a hundred bucks for ONE night. So. Buy the dress. Wear the dress. Show some leg. Let those nursing boobs droop (just a little) and don’t give a flip about the jiggly bits. OWN IT, lady.
I’m convinced that wearing a really good dress, even just once a year, is good for your health. Seriously.
dress: Bec&Bridge Arizona Plunge Dress – love it. It was a little hard to wear a really supportive bra with though (obviously). I wore sticky cups and it…kind of worked. Now, this Cassie Dress from Revolve is AMAZING. It looks like it would be easier to wear a nursing bra with, too.
shoes: Halogen Lace-up flat – now sold out. Their new lace-up flat is so good though…and Marc Fisher has an excellent pair as well. Ah! They also have this Studded Pair. Goooooodness. Decisions, decisions.
earrings: Treasure & Bond Stardust Earrings – can’t see them in my photos though…bummer. They’re awesome.
