Undercover Mama

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Undercover Mama however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Breastfeeding both my children was really important to me and thankfully I was, and continue to be, really successful at it. I'm comfortable nursing my little guy but I do realize that other people can be uncomfortable with it. 

In all honesty, some images of other people nursing in public make me uncomfortable.  Maybe it's my own insecurities about my weight but I don't feel comfortable baring all of myself while nursing.  I nurse discreetly. Now, I'm not hiding in the corner where no one can see me but there is a difference between nursing with your breast pulled out over the top of your shirt and your shirt pulled up over your breast while nursing.

I am of the second camp. I pull my shirt up on top of my breast to keep the whole top boob from just toppling out but that often leaves my postpartum, still floppy, overweight stomach just hanging out.
Undercover Mama has innovated the most amazing solution for me to feel more comfortable while nursing this way.  

The Undercover Mama Tank is a strapless undercover that hooks onto the straps of the nursing bra which provides the coverage for your postpartum belly while nursing. It literally makes any shirt a nursing shirt.

It even helps me feel more comfortable while nursing at work. I literally nurse in a closet in the back of one of the classrooms and I'm always a bit nervous someone will walk in.  At least with the Undercover Mama I feel covered even if I am in a very vulnerable position. 

In addition to feeling more comfortable while wearing the Undercover Mama, it is literally so comfortable as well! Its a soft quality cotton and spandex mix which ensures that you feel a bit held in and are stretchy enough to keep you all in.  I prefer my tanks to feel a bit more snug and that is how the Undercover Mamas are designed so it's perfect.

I literally could not picture nursing without this wonderful accessory!
And because I love them so much, Undercover Mama is giving away one Undercover Mama to one of my readers!

Altuzarra for Target

I love a good Target collaboration and the newest with Altuzarra doesn't disappoint!
I wish I had money pouring out of my behind because I want everything, but I would be happy with these six pieces.

Minus the Cami set, everything would be perfect for any working professional. But that cami set looks like nighttime comfy perfection!
 I am obsessed with those pumps, even though I could never pull them off all day, but I could totally see myself wearing the tuxedo pants or the dresses at work.  So sophisticated!

Did you run to the store and pick anything up?
Which is your favorite?

Fall Fun

I'm kind of over the bucket list posts because I feel it puts too much stress on getting it done, but I do love fall so I made an image of all of our favorite things to do!

Hope we can get to them all this year!

The Most Versatile Bag EVER: Cinda B Boxer Tote

Ever stumble across a bag that is just perfect? Like for every day and every occasion perfect.
Spoiler alert: I have.

The Traveling Bowler in French Linen from cinda b Bags is seriously the most perfect all in one bag I've ever used.
It is my every day bag, my diaper bag, and my overnight bag.

And I struggled how to put this post into words without just talking about how amazing it is multiple times so I'm going to do my best...

I love this bag because as a working mom it is absolutely perfect for whatever I need to get done that day.

Day #1: Emma's Photo Shoot with Cosco Car Seats

My wallet, phone, keys, two changes of clothes for her, a hair brush, toothbrush, wet wipes for cleaning up her face, and the bag of candy from the penny candy store down the street after her "fasson model time".

Day #2 : Beach Day with Both Kids

Diapers for little man, change of clothes for little man, change of clothes for the princess, sunscreen, wallet, keys, sunglasses for me and the princess, little man's bucket hat, extra hairties for the princess, a few Go Go Squeez pouches, a few juice boxes, and my Victoria Secret Water bottle.

Day #3 : Outlets Shopping

Wallet, keys, phone, coupon accordion folder, AAA savings flyer, extra change of clothes for little man and the princess, diapers and wipes for little man, sunscreen, hat and sunglasses for the princess, Go Go Squeez pack, single serve bag of pretzels, and  a bag of jewelry I needed cleaned at the store!

This bag rocks some serious space and works amazingly well as a one or two person weekender but is also the perfect size to use as an everyday bag as well. It has quickly replaced my Kate Spade diaper bag!

It is a machine washable bag that is stain and water resistant.
There is an outside slip pocket and an outside double zip pocket, as well 2 slip pockets and one zip pocket in the super roomy exterior.  There is NO losing your cell phone at the bottom of this bag!

The bag has a 7.5 drop handle so you can carry it like a handbag, or you can utilize the adjustable crossbody strap for when your hands are already full!

It truly is the solution this crazy busy mom needs, but it's stylish enough that I don't look like a mom while using it!

It comes in a variety of colors so you can choose the color combination that fits your style best!
