Making a Statement

Nursing Tank: Target | Poncho: Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s | Jeggings: TJMaxx | Boots: Famous Footwear | Necklace: Francesca’s

If you are nursing and want to be stylish at the same time, then ponchos paired with a nursing tank is the way to go, I tell ya.  Ponchos are the perfect nursing cover and better yet, they hide post partum bellies, score.  Add in a statement necklace and instant glam!  πŸ˜‰  But don’t be fooled guys, I don’t dress up every day… only when we have visitors or are going out to the doctor’s office, which is like twice a week.  Every other day of the week I live in sweats, PJ pants, button downs, zip up hoodies, and robes, but I’ll spare you the outfit pictures on those.

    You look great! I’d wear that poncho and I haven’t had a baby ;).

    Have a great week, Sandy!

    Seriously, this style choice is such a genius idea for nursing. Now if only I was stylish enough to pull it off! I think if I wore something like this out in public my friends would just stare at me sideways. (Because they’d be in shock that I wasn’t just wearing a t-shirt and jeans.) πŸ™‚ It looks great on you, though! Maybe I’ll have to start throwing in something more stylish here and there so that, by the time I’m nursing again, nobody will be too shocked. And, hello, built-in nursing cover. How awesome is that?

    You look so lovely! I’ve never had kids, but I think this combo is genius. Sounds totally practical.

    You look great! I hope I look just as amazing as you post pregnancy. I’ve got 5 more months before baby comes and I already feel like a whale! Thanks for the tip! The poncho looks great.

    You know, I’d never even considered ponchos as a remote possibility for me because being so short, I’d feel like I was wearing a blanket. But for nursing, that is so smart! Never thought of it for that! I’ll have to look more into it when baby is here… although, ponchos may be too warm by springtime. I just always had a nursing cover or just used a baby blanket, neither of which do much for my “look”. Thanks for the tip, Sandy! That outfit looks so fabulous on you!

    Precious! I still haven’t figured out how to dress since Jack was born. Sometimes I feel so frumpy! I just went shopping today to pick up a few things…and now you’ve inspired me to not be so momish all the time πŸ™‚

    I didn’t think of ponchos! Great idea. I went out and got some new button downs because I knew they’d help making nursing easier! πŸ™‚

  13. January 23, 2012 / 9:54 pm

    love the necklace! and you’re so right about the nursing part. i lived in easy nursing clothing!

  14. January 23, 2012 / 11:01 pm

    You look SO cute Sandy. And the minute I opened this post I thought “Oh, that’d be perfect for nursing!” So smart!

  15. January 23, 2012 / 11:43 pm

    Beautiful poncho and the colorful is great too! Happy New year my dear!

    I adore these photos! Awesome awesome! I also adore my poncho- perfect for eating out when you want to look chic but hide the belly (I’m not prego, so you get what I’m saying.) Ps… my mom made the jello for our New Year’s also.

    You look great.. and what post partum belly?! – it looks like yours has already disappeared!

    Ponchos are one of my faves and I’m not even nursing πŸ™‚

  21. January 24, 2012 / 10:02 am

    You look stylish and I never thought ponchos would be good nursing gear, but it makes total sense! I will have to file that tip away for when I become a mommy some day πŸ™‚

    I pretty much rock this exact outfit on a daily basis down to the Target tank.

    Except I have yet to find jeggings that’ll fit my gigantic calves.

    Hope you’re enjoying your little man!
