prenatal –> postnatal

Jenny Greenstein

If ya’ll followed along when I was pregnant, you would have found me frequently discussing prenatal shopping strategies and how to make cost-effective investments. One of my key tips is/was buying dresses that flex with a changing shape and fit during pregnancy and beyond. Here I am putting my own advice into practice, wearing a style I wore beginning at 6 months pregnant (shown here and in the video attached here!), and now wearing it styled as a skirt 6 months postpartum. I wore a ton of non-maternity clothes during my pregnancy, but I kept in mind styles that would go the distance. Getting creative with your wardrobe is critical and creating a capsule collection to get you through this journey (which goes well past birth) is the ultimate goal. This involves careful curation and setting yourself up for success. While I realize from personal experience and from working with my prenatal clients that much of your closet won’t fit for some time (like your jeans), there are many that will. If you are looking for some support in making this all happen, check out my prenatal package, and reach out at so I can help you get there.

weekly finds: what to pack?

Heading somewhere warm this holiday season? I am! This postpartum body is traveling to Turks and Caicos on Saturday, and while I’m super duper excited (and grateful) to hit the sea, sand and sun, I also need to figure out how to pack stylish and functional pieces that hit my current mom objectives: new shape, breastfeeding-friendly and comfortable. That said, I’ve perused my closet and the interweb and have come up with a few selections that work for me. And maybe you too!

SHOP IT: 1. sensi studio // 2. mara hoffman sarong // 3. loup charmont dress // 4. sensi studio beach bag // 5. birkenstocks // 6. hm jumpsuit  // 7. melissa obadash kaftan // 8. mara hoffman dress

To follow up on my post a few weeks back about breastfeeding-friendly styling tips, here’s a round-up of some non-specific nursing items to get you through this transition and beyond. It’s taken me a minute to create a temporary capsule wardrobe, but I think it’s essential to have an assortment that ensures you feel stylish, beautiful and put together. Breastfeeding for me has been an empowering experience, but when it comes to getting dressed there is a lot to manage: big boobs, the baby and easy access. While brands like Loyal Hana and Mitera create super stylish items equipped for nursing, strategic shopping amongst non-nursing brands will help give you plenty of options for now and later.
