What I Wore Real Mom Style: All Dressed Up

As a nursing mom my dress collection dwindles to none, it is so hard find dresses that are nursing friendly (unless it is a nursing dress). So here are some dresses I would love to wear for Christmas… but I can’t!

shabby apple plaid dress


shabby apple red dress


shabby apple dress green

All of these dresses can be found at Shabby Apple!

This post is about real moms who have real style. While we all fall into the jeans and t-shirt rut we are encouraging our fellow moms to take the time to dress their best and rock it like the rock star moms they are! Did you look especially good this week, were the other moms at the playground complimenting your outfit? Share the look that worked for both potty training, the playground and coffee with a friend and let’s inspire each other with some real mom fashion!


About Ellen Peppercorn

Hi my name is Ellen Peppercorn and I am a 31 year old happily married mom to 5 little girls living in Columbus, Ohio. My husband, my five girls and my faith are the most important things in my life, they are my world! After starting Thrifty & Chic Mom five years ago I am happily blogging daily here about all of the things I love… fashion, beauty, family, cooking and all the products that help me be a better mom or make my life easier as a mom.


  1. Wow, that first dress is amazing. I don’t know if I could pull that one off around here — I might get some odd looks. LOL! That hasn’t stopped me yet though. I love those pencil skirt dresses. :) I hear you on the nursing, finally after a year I can wear things for a short period of time. Hang in there stylish momma, you always look lovely.

    I think that Shabby Apple makes very cute dresses! I like so many styles and the colors are amazing! I would love to get me one or two of their dresses! I know what you mean about having a problem with clothes when you breast feed. So many times my shirts got wet!

  3. I love Shabby Apple’s designs, but I have never purchased. I am always hesitant with a brand that’s new to me because you never know how the fit will be. Someday I will have to take the plunge and order, because their aesthetic is drool-worthy.

  4. i love all of them!

    They’re all pretty! I especially love the first one! I’ve never had much luck with ordering dresses online I’ll have to check out their return policy before trying their site out!

  6. I really like the black and white check. It just looks classic. Well, all of their dresses do. They are timeless and I think can fit most women in most situations.

    I adore the top one. Classic and long enough to keep warm plus a nice hot festive color!

  8. Those are such fashionable styles! I really like that red dress pictured above!

  9. Beautiful choices but these definitely wouldn’t work for nursing. I love the green one.

    I love the fur on the black and white dress…very chic.

  11. I love that last dress (green) with those boots!!
