Thing You Can Buy While Shopping For Your Kids Tuesday: Single-Button Jersey-Knit Blazer

Old Navy is one of our favorite places to shop for both boys, and we love their socks for babies — but I often spot things for myself. Their ponte blazers are always very highly rated and don’t stay in stock for long, so if you’re on the hunt for a spring-y, happy, stripey blazer, check this one out. There are a lot of sizes left at the moment, and it’s only $39 full price — not bad. It’s available in sizes XS-XXL (although alas, the XS is sold out). Single-Button Jersey-Knit Blazer

Here’s a plus-size option in four colors at Nordstrom.

(I’m trying out a new theme for Tuesdays: things you buy for yourself while shopping for your kids. Yea? Nay? I know I’ve started buying a lot more things for my husband and myself from stores we shop at for the kids, like Gap, Old Navy, H&M, and others. We actually have a survey heading your way hopefully very soon — but if you have any other general comments about the “themes” for our morning posts we’d love to hear them. Nursing/feeding getting old for anyone else?)

Finally Friday: Ab-solution Itty Bitty Bootcut Jeans

These jeans are extremely popular at Nordstrom and have a million good reviews. They’re only $68, which is great, they come in both regular and petite, which is also great, and they’re available in sizes 0-14 and the very hard-to-find 16 petite. If you’re looking for a new jean for the weekend, give these a try. Wit & Wisdom Ab-solution Itty Bitty Bootcut Jeans

Wit & Wisdom also offers plus sizes.

Everyone Thursday: Intyce Boots

When we did our recent roundup on Corporette of the best tall boots for commuting, I was kind of surprised to see that this style is still being sold. I’ve always thought it was a very sleek boot, and if you’re looking for something to wear with denim or with skirts or just on the weekend or to a more casual office, this boot is a great choice — it has really good reviews and it’s been around for a long time. We’re featuring it in cognac, and also comes in black, both colors in sizes 5-10. It’s 25% off right now at Zappos, marked down from $149.95 to $112.46. Intyce Boots

Everyone Thursday: Avin Crossbody Bag

Did you find your bag preferences changed after the diaper bag stage? I still tend to prefer hobos and other one-shouldered bags, but I could see how a lot of moms might prefer a crossbody bag or even backpacks for a more equal distribution of weight. (Or one girlfriend was just noting that she really only carries her lipstick, phone, and ID right now!) But if you are like me and carry at least three snacks, a pack of Eye Found It cards everywhere you go, and at least one small truck, of course, this crossbody bag looks great — it’s on sale at Nordstrom for $136, down from $228, looks big enough to fit most stuff, and comes in three colors.   Vince Camuto Avin Crossbody Bag

Finally Friday: Woven Back High/Low Knit Top

This Vince Camuto top looks like a great basic — you can wear it to work or on the weekend, you can pair it with skinny pants, and you can layer it under a cardigan or blazer. It looks flattering and also not too out-there in terms of the high/low style. (Note that it does seem to be slightly sheer on most of the back.) It only has a couple of reviews so far, but they’re very positive. And, bonus: It’s machine washable, tumble dry low. The top, which is $69 at Nordstrom, is available in plus sizes in black and coral, as well as other colors in regular sizes. Woven Back High/Low Knit Top

Everyone Thursday: ‘Bristal’ Ankle Strap Pointy Toe Flat

These flats happen to have a zipper up the back — huzzah! That’s great news for the harried mom who can’t actually be bothered to undo or redo these straps every time. This shoe comes in burgundy suede, black suede, and this charcoal suede (all lucky sizes at this point) for $89.95 at Nordstrom. (I should note, if you’re a fan of this sort of style you should check out this similar shoe with grommets — and in fuchsia.) Pictured: ‘Bristal’ Ankle Strap Pointy Toe Flat
