Wardrobe Update: hAha

My gorgeous hAha just had a baby and is craving a wardrobe overhaul. She already has impeccable taste, but haven't we all had those moments where you step into a store and don't even know where to begin? She asked for some mood boards to help get her started, and I needed no further excuse to go virtual shopping. ;)

Her requests: single layer {it's hot and humid}, nursing friendly, bright, breezy and beachy. I started with the simplest {yet most impractical} of outfits: date night clothes!




Separates are not only cost effective {they mix and match so well!} they're also very nursing friendly. Besides, nothing makes you feel human again like putting on a skirt, painting your nails and going out on a date with your man. ;)

1. Lace Tee by Dorothy Perkins //  2. Carin Skirt by Monki // 3. Pastel Orange Belt by Asos // 4. No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Neon Pink by J Crew // 5. Checked Shirt in Navy from The Gap // 6. Chunky Heeled Peep Toes in Mustard //

But the reality is that we moms spend most of our time in casual wear, so that's where I went next: casual with {perhaps too much?} mint:


hAha, I seem to remember you having a nice pair of gladiator sandals, and I KNOW you have a rockin' fedora, so I went from there. There's a lot of DIY we could do here {Make the necklace! Dye your own pair of mint jeans!} but here are the links anyway:

7. Drapey Elbow Sleeve Tee by J Crew {color in stores} // 8. Fedora // 9. Clean Front Bermuda Shorts by The Gap // 10. Lucky Brand Gladiator Sandals // 11. Spearmint Skinny Jeans by J Crew // 12. Albion Necklace by Apres Ski // 13. Sailor Boatneck Tee by J Crew {I got mine at Forever 21}

Next, more easy and breezy outfits. I'm a firm believer that every woman needs one amazing sundress in the summer {just add a whisper-thin cardigan}. I don't know about you, but after I started having babies, the ones at Old Navy just didn't cut it. I had to find better fabric and fit. Maybe this one should join our Sisterhood of the Traveling Wardrobe, because the silk is sooo lovely and I'm kinda obsessed with it:



Plus, colorful shorts! I have these in mint, but I unroll them to make them bermudas. ;)

14. Blouson Dress by J Crew {also available in a nice red/orange color in stores} // 15. Unification Bracelet by Sabrina DeHoff // 16. DIY Paint Chip Necklace // 17. Tessa Top in Flax {made of linen!} // 18. Boyfriend Roll-Up Shorts in Heatwave Orange by The Gap //

So there's some inspiration! Next, we'll figure out how to do it all on a dime. ;)

Happy Weekend!

You're so good at this...I'd love to have you come to my closet and help me put outfits together with what I already have. YOu could prolly charge money for that kind of stuff.

Love it all.

Wow, after packing the suitcase in the POD I was in the exact same predicament, where to start, nursing and light weight:). Some are more nursing and kid friendly than others. How to deal with stains and bodily fluids and do it on a budget as well.

Hmm, not sure what I meant in the last post:) but wondering if those gap shorts come in tall/long, always my issue! Thanks again for the inspiration to update!
