Okay so I’ve committed a million times to being better at updating my outfit posts but I’ve been suffering from a little bit of an adversion to my blog recently. After a long day and another sleepless night (the baba is still a terrible sleeper at 8 months the old), the last thing I’ve wanted to do when I get a spare half an hour is to update my blog..
BUT, I have a few exciting things lined up and I have promised myself to make more effort. And winter is coming and I’m a teeny bit excited to hide away in oversized jumpers and big coats!
So this is probably my last autumn outfit post, and yes I am STILL wearing my furry slides, but as November has arrived so has the cold, so this will probably be the last time they come out for a while..
I’m head to toe in Asos and you can find me on their #asseenonme homepage and shop the look here, and yes I was just a little bit over excited that asos feature little old me on their homepage :).
This year we gave up on Halloween costumes as I literally am finding no energy for anything right now. Buttt the boys are now getting better (it’s been back to back viruses for weeks), so maybe, just maybe we will start to get some more sleep soon and I can feel a little like me again!
So I’ve been sooo bad at posting outfit posts, mainly for a few reasons. Firstly I’ve been living in leggings, t shirts & pj’s. Secondly, as I’ve mentioned so many times, breastfeeding makes me SUPER DUPER hungry, so I just feel fat and frumpy! And thirdly 6 months into maternity leave the ££ has drastically reduced and if feel bad spending on clothes when the husband is paying.
But anyway, here are a few to make up for the extreme lack of posts. And all are breastfeeding friendly 👍🏼

Any breastfeeding mum will have come across this struggle at some point in their nursing life. You wake up to do the night feed and your pjs annoy your baba by flapping in their face and they get further annoyed by you taking so long fumbling around in the dark to lift your pjs up. You are then sat up half naked for the good part of an hour, or you fall asleep nursing and spend the rest of the night freezing with half your top up and half down.
Well ladies, I have discovered something which will revolutionise nighttime nursing for you.. the breastfeeding sleepshirt by Daisypops.
The sleepshirt has sleeves to keep your shoulders warm (one of the reasons I hate wearing vests to bed is I spend most of the night with my shoulders out of the duvet..), and a simple split across the front of the top so you can pop your baby on your chest and feed away without having to fumble around in the dark and without freezing to death.
It’s also great for loungewear when your in the house (especially in the postpartum early days) but want to be in something comfy that is still practical to feed in. In fact I love mine so much I have been using it out of the house as it’s just so easy to feed in! It has been a godsend when leaving the house in this mini heatwave!
The material is lovely and soft and it comes in 7 lovely colours and the lovely people at daisypops now ship to the UK! I was super impressed that my top arrived in less than a week. The shirt costs approx £27 and is worth every penny as even though it’s summer here in the U.K. the weather cannot make its mind up so some nights are freezing and some nights boiling hot and I hate being cold at night.
The pro’s for me are fuss free feeding, no more cold shoulders at night, and super discrete feeding if you wear it out the house. I’m not usually a fan of nursing clothes as they don’t usually look good, but this sleepshirt has been really well made with lovely quality cotton and I felt great wearing it and it’s going to come in handy so much during winter night feeds.
Check out the different colours available here and thank me later 🙂
Lovely Rebecca at Daisypops sent me this sleepshirt to try out and review but all views are my own.
So this weekend we have faced a new dilemma.. what to wear during a heatwave that is breastfeeding friendly and minimises two sweaty bodies making each other even more sweaty 😂😂.
I will save you all from witnessing what I’ve been wearing this past weekend, so here is an outfit from earlier on in the week, before the heatwave kicked in.
A light cotton t-shirt from Zara, with some New look jeggings, with some comfy sandals from Asos 😍.
All of the summer clothes sales have started but I am trying my very best to avoid looking online as it really is time I did something about my baby weight! From tomorrow I am actually starting a healthy eating plan! Wish me luck..
So this week we had yet another wedding meaning another ‘formal’ feeding friendly outfit to find. As I didn’t have time to get to the shops, I had massss of online deliveries arrive all week, and finally caught a moment when both babies were napping to try it ALL on and settled for this lovely outfit..
Both the top and skirt are from Asos and both items are currently half price.. I’ve added the links below..
Embellished white top
I felt great and the outfit was perfect for feeding in which was ideal as my little monkey wouldn’t drink the expressed milk I had taken for him!
