feeling sad about looking out of place at a wedding full of 30something fashionistas. i studied fashion with the bride now she is a city based stylist and i am a country mouse with a toddler and a 4 month old who's exclusively breast feeding. i've lost touch with fashion and my budget is tight. (and i have a post baby pot belly)
i'm a sahm with 2 boys who will not stand for me going shopping and my partner's working away at the mo. i really struggle with getting anything decent online - i take forever searching then nothing ever looks so good when it arrives.
so what would you do?
any suggestions please i'm at a loss to know where to start...

No suggestions but following as you could be me! Are you?

When is the wedding?

How about COS? I think this red shirt dress could be a really simple stunning choice (pockets and buttons yay) with maybe white wedges and low key heidi braids or something? Cos is a faultless 'fashion' choice.

Otherwise, could you handle a [[ silk jumpsuit]? With a blazer and heels?

I'd go for a floaty top from somewhere like Cos and trousers.
Trousers at a wedding are sufficiently non-traditional to avoid a frumpy mum at wedding look.

How about a wrap dress similar to this, very easy I found for breast feeding.

Ps also very forgiving in the tummy department wink

Very wide high waist trousers (lots about atm) and a blouse or wrap top. Or a camisole (with adjustable straps) and kimono style jacket/wrap.

Sleeker than a dress, very smart and bf friendly.

thanks everyone. wedding's in august.
def like the idea of trousers rather than a dress.
will check out cos.
nice dress sammasati but oddly wrap dresses have never suited me however many different ones ive tried

oh nice jumpsuit plan, like the blazer option. cheers

Oooo yes a classically cut jump suit would look awesome, I would have never thought of that! Op I hope that you find something really beautiful and have a super time smile
