I have lots of dresses and I am not short of Autumn dresses at all, but I am short of dresses that fit me following the birth of my son and also autumn dresses that I can breastfeed in. So I have bought a couple of new dresses lately that are suitable for autumn.
When it comes to buying new clothes, I always have the goal of buying items of clothing that will last me a long time. Luckily for me, I’ve never really been into the latest fashion trends and just like the clothes I like. So if I love something, I will wear it for many years. I have lots of clothes that I’ve had for years!
This is currently my favourite dress! It is actually a breastfeeding dress from a website called Stylish Mum. I love that it has little boobs as some of the rainbows. You can get a t-shirt with the pattern for kids, so I could get one for Leo so we could match. How cute would that be? I am waiting to see if they have any Christmas themed dresses coming up, then I might get one!
New Look always have nice clothes in for a reasonable price. I love the floral burgundy dress! I would probably buy it if it was in a cut that allowed me to whack my boobs out whenever my baby needed.
I recently bought 4 dresses from ASOS but sent two back as they didn’t fit me right.
The two I kept are the third and fourth dresses. I love the third, it’s great for a casual everyday dress but it is a bit short. The fourth dress is the perfect autumn dress! It’s a bit dressy, but not overly so. I should really get some photos of me in it!
Just to clarify, the two I sent back are NOT included in the list. I didn’t like them – one was awful, shapeless material and the other was see-through and about two sizes too small.
The grey knit dress is lovely! I love the nips of fabric around the waist in this dress. I also love the houndstooth – I’ve not had any houndstooth print clothing for a few years now so it’s something my wardrobe is lacking.
I have never bought from Shein until recently. I bought a dress from there which I saw recommended in a Facebook group I am in which is called ‘Can I breastfeed in it?‘ It’s currently in the post so I am hoping it’s good quality as I’ve heard good and bad things about this online shop.
How gorgeous is that floral mesh dress? I don’t have anywhere to wear it but if I do end up having an event to go to, then I might have to buy it! I also love the dalmatian print dress – I love how it nips in the waist. I find that cut flattering for my body shape.
I love Dorothy Perkin and I’m sad that all the shops are closed. Boohoo has now bought Dorothy Perkins and it now trades online only.
My favourite item out of this selection is the Khaki Non-Print Empire Mini Dress. I love that colour dress and print. I also really like the shirt dress but I worry that it might get a bit hot as the material does look thick.
Have you bought any autumn dresses this year?
