Postpartum Capsule Wardrobe for Spring & Summer - Lynzy & Co.

Postpartum Capsule Wardrobe for Spring & Summer

I really hope that this Postpartum Capsule Wardrobe for Spring & Summer is helpful for you, it’s finally live! After my first was born, I lived in sweatpants and a tee for those first few months and started to feel really depressed. Having just a few items as your go-tos once you deliver makes you feel put together and ready to tackle on a day of breastfeeding 😉 It took me a few years to nail down what I think is necessary for your postpartum wardrobe but I think I finally did it. Some of these items you may already have in your own wardrobe too! I made sure to include different versions of many of the items as well as high and low price points as well! 

Postpartum Capsule Wardrobe for Spring & Summer

Tops
1.) Loose Button Front Tops || There is nothing like a nice loose button front top for those early nursing days! Some of my favorites are from this store here! They are having a HUGE sale right now with an extra 50% off all sale items (many are on sale) which is huge!!  
2.) Cozy Cardigan for home || this is no secret, I love BFD and they are my number one recommended item for postpartum! 
Don’t want to SPLURGE? This is my favorite SAVE option: scoop up this one!
3.) Basic Nursing Cami || a must have for layering! 
4.) Loose Tanks || These are great postpartum and my favorite for length is this one here!
5.) Open Knit Duster for Layering || I especially love this because it adds texture and length but isn’t too hot because it’s open knit! EXTRA 30% OFF
6.) Loose Basic Tee || My favorite is this one here
Bottoms
1.) Basic COMFORTABLE pair of denim ||  I tried this brand of denim a few years ago and oh my goodness. They are like BUTTA’. I love them so much – highly recommend them postpartum! 
Don’t want to SPLURGE? This is my favorite SAVE option: Denim | My favorite denim from Old Navy!! I am wearing a size 4 – would go up 2 sizes for a bump around 20 weeks. Won’t last the whole pregnancy (or might actually with a belly band!!) Perfect for postpartum! 
2.) Basic Pair of Denim Shorts  ||  These have been my favorites for YEARS and I swear they are worth every penny! If you want to save, I also love these here! I will put a picture of them below!
 
3.) High Rise Leggings || You guys know that I will talk about these Athleta leggings until the END OF TIME. They are AMAZING. Still wearing the same pair since I got pregnant and they fit PERFECTLY. Everything about them is perfection! Code: AP192CA4T2 for 20% off ONE item!
I also highly recommend the AERIE play leggings  – these are SO easy to pull on with ZERO constriction so would be great with a C section! I have been loving these during pregnancy too!
4.) Go-to sweatpants  ||   A pair of sweatpants that you cannot live without, I love these!

3.) Button front jumpsuits || The one from Old Navy that I have is sold out, but they have a ton of other options here! One of my favorite wrap jumpsuits is majorly marked down here (normally over $70 on the Z supply site)!
4.) A Loose Strappy Dress  ||   This dress is STUNNING but currently on a waitlist! I also recently got this dress in (below) from VICI and LOVE it – it’s nursing friendly because the sides dip low! Just wear a nursing bralette with it.
CODE: LYNZY20 for 20% off!
