Deciding What to Wear to Your First Formal Event as a New Mum

Your First Formal Event as a New Mum… Deciding What to Wear

Your new baby is just a few months old and you have been invited to a summerwedding.

It will be the first formal event you have been to since the birth of bubs and there is literally nothing in your wardrobe that is suitable.

You can attest to this because everything that was in your wardrobe this morning is now strewn across your queen size bed, hanging on either side of the bedroom door or sitting in piles on the bedroom floor. Everything is either too big, too small, the wrong shape or the wrong season.

The anxiety of heading out with bubs the first time for an entire afternoon and evening, in a formal or semi-formal setting, and with a large group of people, exacerbates the stress you are feeling. Your brain is telling you that you have nothing to wear, when in fact that opposite is true. There are plenty of items you could throw together, and each would look lovely, but we both know that wouldn’t solve the problem.

We know that what you really want is a garment that will make you look and feel great. A piece that will give you confidence and style, make your feel refreshed and energised, and send a message to the people around you that motherhood is the best thing that has ever happened to you – because you look simply stunning.

Peachymama hears you loud and clear, which is why the team has designed astunning range of dresses that are designed specifically for new mums and which are just right for a range of occasions, including those that need to take you from day into evening. And, importantly, they allow you the flexibility and accessibility to discreetly feed your baby when you need to.

Let’s take a look at some of the options:

  • Cherry red polka dot dress that transfers beautifully from a summer ceremony to evening reception and can be teamed with a pair of strappy heels and a vibrant flower hair clip.

There is a piece in thePeachymama collection to suit every new mum. Be inspired by the colours, classics, styles and lines that have been designed with you in mind.
