Happy Wednesday! This is a laid-back outfit from our recent travels that I loved and felt really comfortable in. I can’t wait to share all about these jeans in an upcoming post, but below are some details and info about the other pieces! Since I usually have a baby glued to my torso these days, soft fabrics are a plus, and this cardigan/top is oh so cozy to the touch. The buttons also make it nursing-friendly … so win-win!
1. Cozy button-up top
It’s hard to tell in photos, but this top has a soft fleeced feel to it, like a lightweight sweater. The cut is on the wider side and tapers in from the armholes down to the hem (perfect for a casual chic half tuck). The shoulders are slightly dropped in style and the ribbed sleeves are slimmer in fit. When worn by itself the neckline is on the low side, so I’d layer a cami or nursing tank underneath!
2.Lace Trim Camisole
A good lace cami is surprisingly versatie, and these have adjustable shoulder straps which help ensure a good fit. The clipdot cami I’m wearing has a lightweight textured dot outer layer, and a full lining underneath. Cut is A-line and more flowy, with sz xxs measuring 16″ across the underarms. I also tried on the satiny lace cami, which is a little more elegant (see how I’ve styled satin camisoles here and here).
For mamas asking if these lace camis are nursing friendly, it takes a little maneuvering. I first loosen up a strap, then wiggle the strap off my shoulder to nurse one side at a time. As for undergarments, I usually wear my Bristols 6 nippies (I wash ’em after each use). Or if I know I’ll be keeping my cardigan on all day, I’ll just wear a regular bra or nursing bra with straps!
3. Convertible mini bag
Leatherology reached out about their new convertible Willow clutch, and I’ve been slightly obsessed ever since it arrived! I had been looking for a large wallet / small bag that fits my phone, keys, credit cards, and this has been perfect for that purpose. It has one large zippered pocket, several card slots inside, plus a large back pocket that fits my iPhone.
There are several strap options (each sold separately), but my favorites might be the wristlet and belt bag styles for hands-free #momlife. I thought I would also love their cross-body strap, but to be honest, it looked a little thick for a bag this small. I might try one of my long chain straps from another purse for a different look!
The leather on the Ivory is softer and smoother than I expected (I should spray it with a leather protectant) so I think one of their more pebbled leathers may be easier to maintain. I got hand painted shadow letters which is a bit pricey, but they also offer a standard smaller monogram option for less. UPDATE July 2020: I never got around to spraying this bag with leather protectant and have been using it fairly regularly, and it’s held up great!
