Maybe it's just me, or maybe it's the fact that spring is all about that "new life" thing, but there are pregnant ladies and new babies everywhere! And I love it!
What I don't love is that I'm not pregnant and now there are amazingly pretty and affordable dressy options for mamas-to-be and new mamas. But if that's you or you know a gal who is - HOORAY! Spring brings lots of opportunities to dress up - holidays, showers (maybe even your own), weddings, graduations, etc. but no one wants to spend their child's college fund on bump- and nursing-friendly options that will only be worn once or twice.
Cue the MAMA collection at H&M! Here are my top super-affordable picks (all under $30 with the current sale) for all your dress-wearing needs this spring.
Top L to R: black lace / floral / sheer sleeve top / pencil skirt
Bottom L to R: teal lace (also comes in black) / floral / green sleeveless
The top row are all bump-friendly options for the ladies still expecting. The look on the right is actually a separate top and pencil skirt which could be perfect for someone who is working in an environment where the skirt could be used Monday through Friday anyway.
The bottom row of dresses are for "nursing mamas, but honestly I'd wear any of them! I love the bottom middle as an Easter dress option and think the one of the right would be perfect for spring or summer weddings. I love that there are options like this for nursing mamas - they make the job easy(ier) but don't announce to the world that you're a walking nutrition station with obvious flaps and snaps.
Lots of love to all the soon-to-be and new mamas! You're doing the hardest, happiest, most important job in the world!
