After spending the past 3 weeks shuffling around the house in yogapants and vests, this week I took a look at my post baby/post C section/breastfeeding wardrobe as I didn't want to venture out of the house looking like one of those mothers who wear pyjamas (or heaven forbid a onesie) to Tesco.
The result was a little depressing. Most things don't work well with a healing C section scar so I am limited to maternity leggings and the yoga pants. This isn't too bad as I have lots of dresses to wear over the leggings but here comes the second problem - breastfeeding. Most of the necklines just don't work when feeding and I'm loathe to hoike the whole dress up round my neck in public. I have a fair amount of breastfeeding tops but nothing to pair them with on the bottom because there is no way I'm wearing a short top with leggings because of problem three - the post baby tummy.
I have managed to cobble together a couple of outfits utilising cheap cami dresses I have been wearing during pregnancy underneath my clothes. They allow me to wear leggings with slightly shorter tops because they come down to my mid thigh streamlining and hiding multitude of sins underneath. I reckon I can alternate these two outfits for a couple of weeks as Husband is returning to work on Monsay so I'll be housebound again until the 6 week no driving ban is over. By then the scar will hopefully be happy enough to allow me to wear a pair of jeans.
Here is today's outfit for a trip to the beach for ice creams on the front!
