Budget Thursday: Linen-Blend Blazer

I like the fun palm print on this Old Navy blazer — and if you need to look professional and want to wear a blazer in the summer when it’s deathly hot (and/or you run hot), this is a nice option. The blue palm print will hide the wrinkles better than solid colors, but this also comes in black and white. It’s $36 and is available in sizes XS-XXL. Linen-Blend Blazer for Women

Here are a few linen-blend blazers in plus sizes from Old Navy.

I wanted to include their jersey knit blazer and ponte blazer in my Corporette roundup of blazers under $50, but they were sold out at the time — so I’m glad to see them back.

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Cordelia Ottoman Dress

Everyone loves Boden’s ottoman fabric — it’s a medium-weight, stretchy, sort of fitted material, and this Cordelia dress is fully lined but still machine washable. We’ve featured a number of other dresses in the ottoman line, but not this one. I like the little button details and the simple neckline. It comes in regular and long sizes 2-18 in black and red, and it’s $120 at Boden. Use the coupon code C64T for 25% off. Cordelia Ottoman Dress

If you’re looking for something more affordable, we just highlighted a Lark & Ro dress (at Corporette) at Amazon that’s very similar for $64.

Accessory Tuesday: Initial Pendant Necklace

If you’re looking for a good, faux-diamond sort of look, I always hear readers singing the praises of Nadri — and here’s one example of their offerings. This initial necklace comes in a lot of different finishes and, obviously, letters. Each letter comes in rose gold, gold, and silver (it’s actually rhodium plating) for only $45. The necklace is really highly rated at Nordstrom, too. I’m a big fan of initial pendants to celebrate my kids, or to celebrate our family name, but you could also celebrate your own name/your maiden name, etc. This just looks like a really wearable, happy little pendant. Initial Pendant Necklace

Maternity Monday: Megan Maternity Nursing Top

Happy Monday! I love this sophisticated top from Lilac Maternity, as well as all three prints it comes in right now — it looks flattering but comfortable, and wearable from work to the weekend.  It’s also a nursing top, huzzah! It’s $66 at Nordstrom. (There are also some longer-sleeved solid versions that were $88 but are now marked to $61.)   Megan Maternity/Nursing Top

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Easy Care Ruched-Yoke Top

Banana Republic easycare topI think I remember knowing, at some point, that Banana Republic had a non-iron dress shirt or something like that — but the fact that they have an entire line of “Easy Care” items is news to me. (For men and women!) This shirt, for example, is 100% polyester, so it’s machine washable — I love the happy yellow color, but it also comes in pink. The top is $78, but you can take 30% off with a purchase of $70 or more (or 40% off with a purchase of $200+.) As always, you can purchase from Banana Republic, Old Navy, Gap and Athleta all in one transaction. Easy Care Ruched-Yoke Top

Nursing Tuesday: Ruffles Cascade Maternity/Nursing Top

Happy Tuesday! Ruffles aren’t usually my thing, but I like the ruffle effect here on this maternity/nursing top — the ruffles look artful without looking frou-frou.  The sedate gray color makes a difference — ruffles are always a different story when pink is involved — but here it works.  The top is $67, available at Nordstrom (also in a longer-sleeved black version and a red dress version) in sizes XS-L.  Ruffles Cascade Maternity/Nursing Top
