Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Bring On The Summer

I’m currently on holiday in Pembrokeshire – clearly not TOTALLY on holiday or I wouldn’t have packed my laptop – and despite a rather dubious forecast, today has been pretty gorgeous weather wise. Yes it did go from bright sunshine to epic downpour within minutes, but minutes later the sun was back out again. Its a little breezy yes – gale force at times – but its sunny, so what more can I ask for?

We’re spending as much time as we can outside, making the most of the weather and the sunshine whilst it lasts. Having checked the forecast before we packed and left home I threw a lot of jumpers in at the last minute, and brought only trousers. Not a summer dress in sight, and I’m beginning to regret that. I think a little shopping trip might be called for before the clouds roll out again and turn the week into a wet squib.

I’m thinking a nice sleeveless dress. I’m not a fan of plain dresses. I like a pattern – generally something cute like birds, which won’t come as a surprise to anyone that’s met me. I have lots of tops, skirts and dresses with a bird print on. A friend of mine suggested I looked at the range of dresses at New Look. They are cheap and cheerful, and luckily for me, plenty come with cute prints on. These are my three favourites from their website, each with a different print – flowers, birds and bees. I think a trip into town is called for to see which I like. Knowing me, I’ll end up buying all three. Then again, it is my birthday on Friday, so perhaps I can persuade Hubby to get them for me. A girl can dream!

Which is your favourite? I’m leaning towards the bee print myself. I like the zip pocket detailing. This dress is an online exclusive… now where did I put Hubby’s credit card…!

When it comes to breastfeeding you want to make life as easy as possible so your little one can get quick access to their milk whilst also maintaining mums dignity. You also want to look stylish, especially if you’re out and about, whether it be lunch with the girls or a family wedding. Nobody wants to loose their sense of fashion when they become a mum, nor do they want to flash their bodies to the world, so beautiful breastfeeding clothes are a must. You don’t have to reach for the nearest stretchy cotton top either – you can go a little bit glam with Peaks of London and their range of breastfeeding dresses.

The Tokyo Dress is my favourite:
This dress has a casual feel to it, but can be teamed with heels for a more dressed up feel. There is a drawstring tie which allows adjustments to whatever your body shape, and the puffball sleeves flatter every shape and size. The drapes on the front of the dress provide discretion whilst feeding, protecting both your body from the crowds, and preventing your little one from being distracted.

If you’re looking for something a bit more special for a wedding or party, try the Drape Dress:
The wrap tie allows you to adjust to fit and highlight either your waist or cleavage to suit. The twisted knot on the front of the dress adds a good decorative feature as well as providing access to your precious milk. The knee length dress is a “must have” for any events you might need to attend this year.
