LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog - you have helped me a TON! Now, I have a big favor to ask. I'm headed to a wedding in Duluth, in April....which means there could be a blizzard or it could be balmy. I'm going to be chasing a three year old and carrying around (and nursing) a ginormous 9 month old. Thanks to your suggestions on other nursing/maternity items, I picked up this Isabella Oliver nursing dress in French Navy. It does a good job (with Spanx) of holding in my about 4 months pregnant looking pooch....I feel comfortable in it, but I need shoe and accessory suggestions.
Did I mention I am standing in this wedding, and there are NO suggestions in terms of color, etc.? The bride likes my dress.....where do I go from here!? All I have figured out is dangly earrings are out, cause I have a grabber, and maybe wedges would be better for toddler wrangling...Thank you thank you!
I've even attached a photo of myself in said dress, so you can see what we are working with ;)
Holly, you look seriously fabulous. 4 Months Post-partum? WOW.
So you need a few options to work with crazy Duluth weather, while toddler wrangling and standing up for the bride? Gotcha.
The most important one, I think, is the standing up for the bride part. While there may be no suggestions from the bride in terms of color, I think we should be careful. While your dress may look great with, say, a hot red pump for date night, I think that's the wrong choice for wedding photos - you don't want your bright pumps competing with the bride in pics. Know what I mean?
Holly, I came up with a couple of possible looks for you. They include some subtle accessories, and a way to stay warm(ish) if you find yourself in the middle of a blizzard (which seems likely....Marquette, MI just had a snowday last week). Warning: I said warm-ish, not warm. But you'll look amazing, and won't totally freeze. Which is the best you can hope for as a bridesmaid, I think. :)
