    I don't understand fashion at all anyway.

    Ugh, summer! I'm super pale and all gradual tanners give me eczema. Plus I'm pear shaped so shorts are really unflattering. Also not the flattest tummy. AND I'm short, so those looser fitting tanks are usually too long for me & skim my hips, emphasising the biggest part of me & making me look uber frumpy. If I could live in shorts & a tank I would but it just doesn't seem to happen for me 😆 I have a couple of maxi skirts and dresses, 3/4 cargos & leggings, often I'll just suffer the heat in jeans and a tank top (it's not overly hot where I am). Really need to experiment a bit more this year, good ideas ladies

    Lol. I really don't need anything other than basics this year either. We've moved interstate and I'm pretty much home looking after bub. Guess I'm dreaming.

    It's always hot where we live so my wardrobe doesn't change much. I love my short denim shorts with tank tops, dresses ranging from fitted to mid thigh length to maxi longer flowy styles, knee length leggings with fitted long tops or flowy ones, an assortment of sarrongs and bikinis and tankini's as we are always in the pool, oh and I love pantsuits short and cullotte longer styles.

    Considering I'm short and have a bumpy exterior plus breastfeeding this summer I'm restricted in my clothing.

    So pretty blouses and denim skirt/denim short/dress shorts/Capri pant girl. I do like summer dresses but most aren't bf friendly. I also wont wear patterns or prints or maxi dresses or anything remotely hippy looking.

    Black, white and bold colours are my thing. Might wear the occasional floral if the cut is severe.

    Have you tried 3m chaffing cream? It is great, I couldn't wear skirts/dresses without it.

    I'm really not looking forward to trying to hunt down breastfeeding clothes this summer. They're so damn expensive.

    I found these to be really great...

    Then I could wear a flowing top over the top (great if you like keeping your shoulders covered)

    It clips to your feeding bra....

    I used these with a flowy top. They were great, comfy and practical.
