Vintage-Inspired Swimwear.

Retro Skirted Swimsuit

It's hard to wrap my mind around swimsuit season, as it is currently freezing outside, but the suits are popping up everywhere already! This is the first one that has really caught my eye. If I could, I would get one in yellow AND black. I love the vintage look, and this suit is not as ridiculously priced as some of the other vintage-inspired pieces I've seen.

From Victoria's Secret- $58

Fashionable Nursing Options.

Option One: Find a stretchy leotard and pair it with cute skirts or trousers. This leotard is vintage (as is the skirt), but you can find similar bodysuits at American Apparel. They are so stretchy that you can just pull each side down to nurse.

Option Two: Raid your hubby's closet for a button up plaid shirt. All you need is a cute fitted jacket and some leggings to pull a look together- and the buttons make nursing a breeze!

Option Three: Make those flowy tops look more 'pulled together' by adding a skinny belt. When it comes time to nurse, just unclip the belt and your roomy top becomes the perfect nursing cover!

This is me at 5 weeks postpartum-- feeling excited about fitting into old clothes again. Although... this was not a very practical outfit for breastfeeding. Hahaha. It lasted about 2 hours before I had to change again.

*Sigh* The joys of postpartum mamma...
