    New Mom Spring Capsule Wardrobe

    I have had no time or effort to spare lately.  So, when it came to my outfits they were seriously lacking.  I had always toyed with the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe for a couple of reasons (efficiency, curb unnecessary spending and convenience) but never put the idea to work.  But, after essentially losing my desire to get dressed post baby (I have been holed up in my home wearing nothing but lululemon and breastfeeding camis) I decided to curate a capsule wardrobe that was functional for my new life with a newborn but kept my identity.

    So, essentially everything in this capsule is breast-feeding friendly. What does that mean? Each item has been tested by myself to be comfortable and efficient for nursing.  For example, most tops are button ups or strapless for easy access or at the very least, loose-fitting to be able to flip-up for your little one.   Also, unless they were something I already had in my closet, most of the items are inexpensive (this girl is on a budget) coming from places like H&M, Old Navy and Gap. Keep in mind, this is my very first capsule and a work in progress, so I will be updating you with the different looks and any pros or cons I stumble on.

    Let me know what you think! What would you ditch or add? Let me know in the comments!
