Post Cards from Postpartum: More Muu Muu

I found the perfect postpartum outfit, accessible for nursing and hip (ish) and perfectly in line with Reachel Bagley's rules for post birth dressing.It's called a muu muu top.

One day while wondering what I was going to wear for the rest of my life (not the rest of my life, I'm being dramatic) I lamented the loss of my muu muus. I had put them away in the closet downstairs because muu muus are not easy access for the nursing mother. But as I stood in wonderment I thought about those muu muus and had a great idea.

I asked Chup to severly hem them for me. We marked them about mid-thigh and he took them downstairs and in about an hour I had the perfect top. I mean, THE PERFECT TOP. Flowy, breezy and hot-flash acceptable. I wear them with leggings or jeans or heck, jeggings, and boots. And now I crave going out second hand shopping so I can make more.

I'd show a picture here, but I think Erin in her first muu muu is definitely eight or ten times cuter than me in my muu muu top. So just know, I'm pleased with myself.
