If you have multiple holiday parties to attend this season, Marie Hell is all you need. The brilliance of Marie Hell is that all her designs are versatile enough to wear to a casual party or a dressy affair. The Emerge Tunic gives you so many options.

For a casual party, dare to wear the tunic with some cowboy boots. You will be ready for anything and feel great at the same time. 

When the invitation calls for something a little more formal, slip on your favorite pair of pumps and add some sparkly jewelry for a dressy party look.

Boob Design

Perfect to wear for Christmas Eve Mass


Top Holiday Picks

Christmas Eve is full of magic. Even before the kids go to bed and wait for Santa to arrive, going to your church’s Christmas Eve service is one of those special experiences that shouldn’t be missed. In fact, it should be repeated year after year with the entire family in tow. Like all special occasions, it is best enjoyed while wearing the perfect dress, and if you’re a nursing mother, that dress must serve both function and fabulous.

Boob Design keeps both function and fashion in mind with their collection of maternity and nursing-friendly clothing that encourages breastfeeding mothers to feel beautiful while feeding their babies. Using sustainable materials such as organic cotton, lyocell, recycled polyester, and polyamide, their clothing is guarantee to last through multiple pregnancies and years and years of nursing. 

For this holiday season, we especially love the 50/50 dress in black which can be worn both during pregnancy and afterward with a discreet front nursing panel. The top part of the dress is a soft, stretchy knit, and the bottom is made of 100% woven lyocell. A small side tie is a sweet little feature that keeps the top secure, while adding a little detail to the basic design. If ever there were a little black dress that met all the needs of a nursing mother, this is it. 

If you prefer to walk on the wild side, then perhaps the Ruched Dress Leo is more your speed. While completely acceptable for church or any holiday event, this dress features a subtle leopard print that is sure to tell anyone you meet that you’re someone to watch. 

Like all of Boob’s designs, this long-sleeve form fitting, boatneck dress has dual functionality as you can wear it during pregnancy and also while nursing. If you’re pregnant, the ruched section at the bottom sides will fit your baby bump beautifully.

Meanwhile, if your new baby has already arrived, the overlap across the bust makes nursing easy, comfortable, and discreet. It opens simply with one hand, leaving the other free to hold your baby. Made in soft and comfortable lyocell, you’ll love this dress so much that we won’t be surprised if you fall asleep in it. 

The Brand

In 1999, owner Mia Seipel was watching her sister breastfeed her newborn son on a cold and windy autumn day. As the cold north wind swept around her bare waist, she realized that her sister and all other nursing mothers deserved to have clothing better suited to feed their babies. Her solution was Boob’s patented nursing collection, which has evolved to include clothing for all stages of motherhood including a smart double function for pregnancy and nursing. Their clothes are one of our favorites – meant to be used, washed and loved, over and over again.

Maurices

Perfect for Having Lunch with Friends Over the Holidays


Top Holiday Picks

Typically, when we think of the holidays, we imagine our family and friends carefully placed around the dining room table, eating a meal together or opening presents on Christmas Eve. However, the holiday season extends much further than the events that surround Hanukkah or Christmas. Oftentimes, it’s going to see A Christmas Carol or The Nutcracker, but it could just as easily include meeting old friends for brunch during the month of December. With that in mind, it’s important to have several holiday outfits at your disposal to address any occasion that may come your way. Maurices has everything you need this year to get ready for the season. 

Our go-to for this holiday season is an edgy twist on the little black dress. Something form fitting might be an obvious choice, but we love the idea of a patterned skater dress with lace sleeves that smoothes out our mommy curves and plays into our fun personalities. Even with two kids in tow, you’ll feel 10 years younger in this fun dress. 

With every little black dress, you need a statement piece; and this year’s statement is a leather jacket. Okay, maybe it’s not “real” leather, but this faux leather moto jacket with knit sides fits like the best glove you’ve ever owned in your entire life. We’re obviously wearing it this holiday season, but this is a jacket you need in your closet all year long. 

Machine washable, this jacket has knit sides that go all the way up under the arms. We found this to be just the right amount of stretch to allow us to pick up the kids and go even while dressing sassy. It also has beautifully detailed stitching that will make your friends think you spent a fortune. It really is a must have!

Finally, don’t forget your footwear. In the same styling as the moto leather jacket, the Debbie faux leather and suede heeled booties with snake skin texture are the perfect finale for a totally hot outfit. There’s no red and green here as you step out of the house ready to take on the holidays with all the confidence of a mom who can do anything. 

The Brand

Maurices has a rich, 85-year history of celebrating and serving the local communities they call home. They are inclusive, diverse, and ageless, offering sizes 1-24 to fit all shapes and sizes. Their style is flowy and flattering and celebrates being feminine. Outfitting their customer’s’ lives with versatile pieces to take her from workday to weekend, they have a variety of holiday-ready outfits for every woman.

Queen Bee

Perfect for your first Christmas Post-Baby


Top Holiday Picks

Take control and lead your hive, Ms. Queen Bee; you’ve got all the accessories, clothing, and nursing needs met within this Australian online boutique. Whether you are expecting or not, your fully stocked wardrobe won’t need a makeover while you move from a pre to postpartum body. Who’s the Queen Bee now? Go buzz on over there…

Whether you’ve got a swarm of kids around you, or just your closest friends, whatever you do, adorn this sweet little dress with your growing or postpartum curves. Floressa – the Chantel Zip Nursing Dress meets all your expectations when it comes to style, comfort, uniqueness, and functionality.  

With just a touch of edge due to the rose colored zipper, own it and work it. As an Australian-born online boutique, they work with top designers to bring you this soft cotton with spandex mix dress that feels so extremely luxurious, you’ll feel every bit like the Queen you are without the royal prices. 

The convenience of this breastfeeding dress comes from the round neckline with decorative trim, while keeping you comfortably warm this season with long sleeves. Complete the look with two front pockets and the conservative rose-gold colored front zipper; simply unzip and lift the inner crop layer to nurse. 

This dress is so versatile you’ll love the “work wear” style: with knee high boots and a woven jacket, work is ready and you look sexy. For when you want the “casual day” for visiting friends or catching up on some errands, simply add runners and a striped tote bag. And when you desire the “special dress-up” evening (or day), grab your most sexy pair of heels and a rose clutch. 

The Brand

Queen Bee® began as a small home based business after one mom decided she wanted Australia to discover stylish nursing wear with hidden openings that allowed discreet nursing in public. Not long after, the range expanded to include designer maternity wear. They stock a beautiful range of maternity clothes for all occasions, from swimwear, maternity jeans to formal wear and everything in between. Queen Bee® is the go to destination where you can buy everything you need to see you through pregnancy and beyond.
