Your advice needed please. I?m going to a wedding in May and need to update the only decent outfit I have in my wardrobe that fits me post baby. It's a winter white jacket, softly tailored and black linen type fabric trousers. I have black shoes and black/white bag but I need a new top. The one I have is too wintery. What do you advise? It has to go over a nursing bra (you all know how glamorous they are ) so nothing strapless, halter neck or too flimsy please.

OOOh that kimono top is gorgeous!!! Suspect i would look like a sack of potatoes tied in the middle though. I can look terrible even in something that cost £120.
You guys have such good ideas though. Am tempted by that M&S cardi (never thought i would say that, even at my age). Can't remember when I last bought something from M&s except the Per Una range

Go for some strappy sandals then KM.
Go mad and get that Kimono top, I dare you. Just one thing don't tell me if you do because I will be rather jealous!
Another thing I have just thought of is that Topshop have their own personal shopper service now so you could go in and get some ideas.

I would second a camisole/cardi-thing combination. I went to a wedding when LO was 10 weeks and had humungous breasts and the nursing bra problem. I found a camisole with thicker straps if that makes sense and got the matching cardi to go with it (in a very similar green to one in the link). It wasn't what I would normally go for but felt good and the cardi was helpful for more discrete feeding! I got my bits from East, quite expensive but DH treated me.
