OOTD - Sometimes I wear black!


I think I may have found the perfect breastfeeding top! It's so exciting when you find exactly what you are looking for. The drapes at the front give perfect coverage even when the top is lifted up. They are also great for hiding a not-so-flat stomach which is often the case 2 months postpartum. A top by DKNY, it is actually a designer top and I think the first designer garment I have owned! I got it from TK Maxx so it didn't quite have the designer price tag!

I do not often wear black; as you may have noticed. I love bright colours but I also like the sleek and sophisticated look of black occasionally. I find it to be a very versatile colour. It looks great with many of the bright coloured harem trousers I own but it also looks great with white as a monochrome look. 


Here, I have paired the black top with my black one-size-fits-all maxi skirt, the one I loved so much during my pregnancy, proving that one-size really does fit all! It is so great to find a skirt that will accommodate my frequently changing body shape without the need to change my wardrobe every month. Just think of all the money I save not having to go shopping every time I lose or gain a few pounds.

I have added a pink vest top underneath the DKNY top as I think it looks good to break up the block of colour when wearing top and bottoms in the same colour. I chose a pink vest top to pull out the pink of the kimono I am wearing over the black top. The kimono adds a bit of much-needed pattern and interest to the outfit. I love the shape of this kimono from New Look and adore the way it drapes at the back. It's thin, cool fabric make it perfect for sunny weather. A pinky-purple sparkly hijab and purple flip flops complete the look (I often wear flip flops when the sun shines).
