I thought I’d be excited to dress for the holidays this year, now that I no longer have a bump. But honestly, I find dressing post-partum can be harder than maternity dressing. I’m still nursing, which means anything I wear needs to be easy to breastfeed in, which rules out a lot of holiday dresses. I also still have some post-baby pounds to lose and am adjusting to dressing for a much larger chest (thank you breastfeeding!), which complicates things more. Bottom line: I’ve been in search of breastfeeding-friendly holiday outfits to wear to some of our more casual holiday parties.
I wanted an outfit that made me feel good and that would make it easy to nurse between courses or drinks. These party pants felt more festive than just your standard black pants, and have a lot of stretch, which I need right now. I love how the peplum top is forgiving and a bit more fun than your typical button down but still allows easy access for breastfeeding. Plus, I can wear both throughout the holidays and switch them up with different things.
