Ready, Set, Go: Fall Refreshers for Breastfeeding Moms
Fall is the perfect time to refresh—your outlook, your outfits, and whatever else helps you feel ready to face new adventures with confidence. Kick into high gear this September with these “back-to-school-season” supplies.
New shoes are always on the top of our “back to school” list, so put your best foot forward in these cool slip-ons. Take note—these are not your mom’s Dr. Scholl’s (remember those clip-cloppers?)—and they’ll make the transition from daycare dropoff to the office a breeze. Plus, with each purchase, Dr. Scholl’s donates one tree to Trees for the Future to offset carbon emissions. Comfortable, cool, and environmentally conscious? A+.
Remember when you picked new school clothes that worked for recess and looked cool? These 4-way stretch jeans are the grown-up version and get high marks for how they bend (and squat, and run) with you. Plus, the raw-edge finish is on trend without being too fussy. We especially love these Abby hi-rise skinny jeans from Liverpool in Los Angeles.
An All-Star Blouse
When the heat of summer turns to crisp, cool days, you need a blouse that looks good, hides stains and drapes in all the right places. Meet our new everyday favorite, the Kimono shirt from Chapter Goods. Made from sustainably sourced 100% linen—and manufactured in Brooklyn— it’s also totally machine washable. And that’s a win in our book!
‘Tis the season for layering, so start with the (your) bottom! Super cute and just as comfy as those postpartum mesh undies, these high-waisted panties edged with lace from Kindred Bravely might just be your new best friend.
A New Notebook
There’s nothing like the clean, empty pages of a new notebook. Get inspired and stay organized with bullet journaling! It’s a simple system to keep all your ideas, lists, and dreams in one place (without hauling around your old Trapper Keeper). We love the sweet designs of the notebooks from Scribbles That Matter, but if you want something classic a Moleskin is the place to start.
The Perfect Backpack
You need a bag that can go the distance, carry your stuff, and leave you hands-free for carseat-wrangling. Ergo Baby’s Out For Adventure backpack doubles as a diaper bag and ticks all the boxes for your adventures. Need a place for snacks? This back back has ‘em. Outfit changes for your LO in case of a big blowout? You know it. Insulated bottle pockets? Yup, it has those too.
Fresh Face Masks
Back in the day you and your best friend spent an hour applying your mom’s chalky clay facial masks. Now, you just need fifteen minutes and a super easy-to-apply sheet mask. We’re fans of drugstore face masks that are affordable and effective, like Simple’s Water Boost Hydrating sheet mask. Free of dyes and perfumes, it delivers deep hydration and helps you look refreshed, even when you’re not. No Sunday Scaries here.
