Recently I had to dress up to attend a family event held at church. It was one of my niece’s First Communion and it was going to be at the local cathedral. Joaquín being less than 3 months old is permanently attached to the breast nursing, so I knew I had to bring a ring sling. Now, you may have seen that the ring slings I own are all bright colors mostly blue/greens. Those colors were not gonna fly because one I’m sure they were going to attract a lot of attention and 2, I didn’t want to attract attention😂.
This is when I decided to buy my new favorite ring sling Sparrow (sorry Peace).
This is from their first collection of linens that I had already hosted (see past review here). Sparrow is not a color I would have chosen. I still love Parakeet – a bright lime green. But it went perfect with the outfit I had in mind and it is a very subtle color.
Here’s a pic of the outfit I had chosen:
As you can see perfect match! Only problem was that nursing in that dress was nearly impossible. So change of plans. While I looked for another outfit at the very last minute with no option to buy anything, I started thinking that I should’ve bought Midnight Masquerade, an all black ring sling. See, black is my color, I wear tons of black but didn’t want to wear such a dark color for this particular activity. It really hit me that none of my carriers are “dressy”. Not that they should be but in my situation I wanted to dress up and not have any funky colors/designs on me. So that inspired me to prepare a list of options from Soul Slings that I think you can wear when dressing up 😉.
and I think also
and maybe even
Here’s a pic of what I actually wore and another pic of me wearing the ring sling with a total casual outfit because let me tell you, I’m 100% loving this linen ring sling. And remember, you an always do a fancy finish and up your outfit with just a few more steps!
Tell me, which carrier do you love for dressing up?

Great ideas! It’s nice to have some subtle carriers that don’t take away from an outfit. Especially for a fancy event.
