For the last few weeks it’s been gloomy and rainy but over the weekend the sun decided to shine and the weather finally warmed up again so we got out of the house for a sushi family date night!

I’ve had to hunt for clothes that work for nursing so…for all you nursing mama’s this dress is a dream! It’s so comfortable, you can move around easily in it and it makes nursing SO convenient (especially in public) with the button front!

Also, Arvo is offering Pink Peonies readers 20% off your entire purchase when you use code PINKPEONIES20. Enjoy!!

    Cute and relaxed outfit! You look beautiful as always!

  11. Good luck with nursing…it’s no easy task! It is hard those first couple of months to find things you are comfortable in and can learn to smoothly transition to feeding in while in public. This looks comfortable and of course, LOVE the Valentino gladiators.

    Perfect cozy outfit for nursing! $275 thought is completely out of my price range for a nursing dress! EEK! I know you can totally afford it but my budget is more like $35. I’ve been nursing my little one for a while and there are actually a lot of great options but yes you have to be creative. It’s one thing to have something that easily works for when in private to get out of but in public, it MUST be easy. I’m hoping to find more inspiration from your outfits for now and future babies. I ended up mostly living in inexpensive $20 nursing tanks from Target with a little cardigan over top with maxi or midi skirts (or shorts/jeans). There are actually quite a few tops and dresses that button down or have a wrap look to them that help out a lot. It’s all about comfort and practicality during this time.

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
