How to Turn a Dress into a Skirt with

While I was pregnant, turning a dress into a skirt and just knotting a simple tee was one of my favorite looks. It's a little bit tricky for a nursing mama to find a dress AND top that are functional for a quick nursing session. This adorable black and white striped top is a perfect layering piece and is also light and breezy for summer. I'm a big fan of black and white prints and this pin striped shirt is a must-have. I fell in love with the gold stud buttons and immediately knew that pairing this blouse with my gold studded brooch would add a perfect touch.

Normally I wouldn't advice wearing tights if it's over 85 degrees outside but I wore this outfit out on a mini date with my boys in the evening. I also spend a majority of my day indoors in a very cool environment so I'm able to layer up a bit more than last summer when we were living in an un-airconditioned apartment.
