Weekend Open Thread

Since becoming a mom, a zipper (or something similarly easy) is essential for shoes — it seems like I’m always running out the door with the kids and throwing on my own shoes as an afterthought. These casual booties have AMAZING reviews at Zappos and Nordstrom, come in a bunch of nice colors (we’re featuring the burgundy over at Corporette) and, huzzah, have a zipper. Nice. They’re $110 at Zappos, Nordstrom, and Amazon‘Kerri’ Bootie

Family Friday: Girls’ Striped Three-Quarter Sleeve Boat-Neck Tunic

It’s nice to see that Amazon is expanding the number of lines they make themselves and carry — and this one, Scout + Ro, is designed for little girls. They’ve got a ton of affordable pieces that are getting a lot of good reviews. This boat-neck tunic top comes in three different colors of stripes and has a really lovely Parisian/French vibe. It’s got a 4.4/5.0 rating from 30+ reviews and is $12.50 (with Prime and free returns). Scout + Ro Girls’ Striped Three-Quarter Sleeve Boat-Neck Tunic

Washable Wednesday: ‘New Flirt’ Ponte Knit Skirt

Nic + Zoe has a whole line of classic pieces, most of which are machine washable, but I have not seen this ponte knit skirt before. It’s highly rated, it’s got a hidden elastic waist, and it comes in sizes XS–XL. I would check it out if you’re looking for a nice, knee-length, pull-on, non-vented skirt, and I would trust the ponte to be a thick, substantial fabric that’s worth the $118 price (at Nordstrom). ‘New Flirt’ Ponte Knit Skirt

One machine washable option in plus sizes is from Vince Camuto.

Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: 3-Pack Classic Swaddling Cloths

Every mom gets these Aiden + Anais swaddling cloths — we still have them from our kids’ baby years. For what it’s worth, I never liked swaddling our kids in them because the SwaddleMe velcro system was much better for me — maybe my sleep-addled brain just couldn’t figure out how to do a little baby burrito. In general, we love Aiden + Anais — they make great stroller blankets and things like that, and my boys still sleep with their Dream Blankets. This “metallic gold deco” set (it also comes in silver deco) is so pretty — my kids are too big to swaddle now but I kind of want to get a set anyway! I can see these working for a boy or a girl (although, really, everything can work for a boy or a girl), and there are a bunch of other cute patterns. A set of three is $49.95 at Nordstrom. 3-Pack Classic Swaddling Cloths

Makeup Monday: Sleepwear

I’ve sung the praises of Sleepwear products over at Corporette, as they’re a key part of my skincare routine, especially as we head into the colder months. I can’t say enough about Sleepwear — I’ve tried a lot of heavy creams because my skin gets very dry in the winter, but this is what I keep coming back to. They even have “flight-friendly” travel sizes. I have Sleepwear for Hands, Sleepwear for Eyes … I really like the whole brand in general. Sleepwear

(Note that Sleepwear products are available on Amazon but the brand doesn’t recommend purchasing them there.)
