Fashion Finds | New Mommy

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
Remember how in this post, I was talking about my urge to shop, well I gave in BUT for good reason! I needed more nursing friendly clothes as I only had two nursing shirts and one nursing dress and luckily I was a winner of a Pink Blush gift card giveaway! So technically, I didn't purchase those;) but before I break down each item I wanted to give you guys my size for size reference. Before pregnancy I wore a S or M in tops depending on the make and during pregnancy I wore a S or M in maternity shirts.
Navy Stripe Button Up Blouse
This blouse is so beautiful and perfect to dress up or dress down and being a button up allows easy access to nurse! I went ahead a picked a medium but as you can see on the model this shirt has a very relaxed and loose fit therefore I am exchanging mine for a small because I prefer it to be a little more fitted than that.

Coral Button Up Blouse
The detailing on this shirt called me, I love the sheerness near the collar bone area, it makes a typically button up look different. I picked out a medium in this shirt but as I still have extra fluff from the pregnancy, it is a little tight when I button it but it has nice stretch to it so I plan to keep the medium until it fits better.
Yellow Button Front Cutout Accent Sleeveless Blouse
This shirt is not my usual style but I decided to give it a try since it has buttons (shirts with buttons provide that easy access to nurse) however the buttons are just for details, the shirt doesn't actually button up. I was willing to let that slide since the shirt is very flowy and see-through therefore I could easily wear a nursing cami underneath. I picked a medium and even though the shirt is meant to be big and flowly, it was also big in the arm pit area so I am exchanging it for a small as well.

The next two items were purchases I actually made because I wanted something more casual to wear at home. I made both of these purchases from H&M and pre-pregnancy I always had to size up because their clothing seemed to run small and/or they would shrink after being washed and dried.
Nursing Camis
These shirts are a God-send! I love them and wear them pretty much every day, no joke. I need to purchase more. I bought these in a large and they fit perfectly in the chest region and a little loose around my tummy area but not too much just enough for comfort.
Nursing Tops
I was really excited about these but was a little disappointed. I purchased a large because like I said the items I have purchased from H&M run small and/or shrink when washed. When I tried them on they did fit loose and especially loose in the chest region but I thought they would shrink when washed (as that has been my previous experience) and they did not. Since they are washed I can no longer return or exchange them so I'm stuck with these very loose nursing shirts. If I would have gotten them in a medium, I think they would be amazing though so just a heads up to get your actual size in these!

Well that's it for today's fashion finds and stay tuned for an awesome collaboration coming in the next few weeks!!
