    Default Fashion advise help!! What can I wear?

    Hi Ladies,

    Need some help! Its DPs work do on Saturday and its at a country race meet during the day. Its Smart Casual dress and its a family fun picnic day (so all about the family).

    SO I just dont know what to wear!

    I am overweight, short and have MASSIVE b00bs. I am still BFing so bubs needs access. I dont want to wear a skirt/dress as I need to get up and down from the floor with DD. I dont like maxi dresses as I think I would look ridiculous (being short and fat!). I dont want to show my arms as I have tatts so would like to look respectible at the work do.

    What do I do?

    All I wear now is whats comfortable but I want something comfortable and nice looking.

    Also with shoes all I wear are thong like shoes but am wondering if I should do ballet flats? But would I look dumb?

    *sigh* I just need a little advise or some clothing suggestions

    What about a cute casual dress with 3/4 length tights? You could wear a little shrug or cardigan to cover your arms, or just show off your tats!

    Ballet flats look great with most clothes.

    Good luck!

    Hi Ladies....thanks for the suggestions!

    With all the judging on the leggings...will the tights be okay?

    Tights/ leggings with a dress are a good look, as long as the dress is long enough that it can actually be worn as a dress. It's when girls wear long tops or dresses that show bum that it becomes a bit iffy! Otherwise it's just a good way to look pretty in a dress and stay comfy!

    What about some nice pants - comfy linen or cotton pants (lovely and cool) and a long sleeve button through shirt (kmart even have some nice shirts for $15 that have a stretchy gusset in the side so they will stretch to cover more b00bage)- very crisp and classic. And ballet flats would be perfect with this. And you can breast feed in a button through shirt with a cami underneath so you won't have to flash your tummy.

    Big W have some lovely linen pants for $25

    Tights under a dress are fine it's when they're worn in leu of pants that it becomes a problem. As pp's have said a dress with tights and ballet flats would look awesome. If you get a dress that crosses over your chest you can move it to the side to get boob access.

    I would check out some maternity/breastfeeding dresses or shirts, places like Target and Big W have some pretty decent stuff. Even if u pick something quite plain, and dress it up with a nice little cardigan, pretty necklace, belt, ballet flats or nice sandals.. Things like that. It's all in the accessories! Also, a pretty scarf or shawl could be handy for breastfeeding to keep yourself covered.

    Oh and I lived in tights and dresses all winter!
