Girly mama – 8 chic nursing friendly dresses from Oasis

It’s so nice when I come across a decent amount of breastfeeding-friendly dresses in one place, as they can be quite hard to find. That’s what happened when I started browsing the Oasis store.
The dresses are feminine and chic, perfect for a professional or for those who managed to be chic and polished at all times. I really hope that shirt dresses stay on trend forever, they are a lifesaver for us nursing mamas.

I think that the first one is my fave, which one is yours?

It´s in the bag!

When you are pregnant or nursing, there is only a limited amount of clothing you can wear, which is probably smaller than your “regular” collection. Hence you feel you are stuck on a style rut. And this is where accessories come to the rescue, transforming a plain and simple look in a sophisticated/boho/hip or whatever outfit your mood dictates.
Satchels are like rucksacks: they are pretty, they are bang on trend and they let your hands free. Any of these beauties will enliven your daily mama uniform:
