{one haute mama}

Last week, I returned to work with the sad realization that I had nothing to wear to suit my {new mama} status.  I needed clothes that would support my days of nursing Lucas at home and pumping milk on the go.  I have been lucky enough to work in a place that supports my breast feeding goals.  I had my office window covered and even got a small fridge in my private office, so I could store the milk I pump during the day.  I also ordered a hands-free busier bra to wear while pumping so I could now keep working while I pumped.

Only one obstacle remained–my current wardrobe was not very nursing-friendly.  I now needed tops and dresses I could pull down, lift up, pull aside, or unbutton easily.  I went on a small shopping spree with a budget of $200 and came home with 7 new pieces that I think will get me through work days and weekends for a while.  This was easy once I discovered the MNG by Mango collection at JC Penney.  Every item I purchased was under $50 and I got a 20% discount too!  The collection features many items that can easily transition between work and the weekend.

I wanted to share my new wardrobe here for other new mamas.  Here’s what I wore to work today, featuring a new blouse.  Since summer dress code in my office is casual, I paired it with dark denim jeans by Banana Republic and jazzed it all up with a gold links bracelet and a gold bee pendant necklace from my days of selling Stella & Dot.  You can’t really see my shoes, but I’m wearing strappy metallic heels that are actually very comfortable.

Hoping I’ve inspired other haute mamas!

{Happy shopping!}
