Washable Wednesday: Etsuko Dress

MM.LaFleur Etsuko Dress | CorporetteMomsAs I noted yesterday on Corporette: I was really excited to work with the brand MM.LaFleur, in part because they make a TON of machine-washable workwear — and it’s apparent from the shopping pages, not just the product pages. It baffles me why stores don’t adopt a “machine wash” filter, since I think there is a strong preference for a lot of people one way or the other. In any event: I loved all of the MM.LaFleur dresses I tried on, but I thought this plum Etsuko dress was particularly lovely. The pockets were unobtrusive, the fabric felt polished and luxurious, and I was ultimately really surprised to find that it was machine washable. It’s available in three colors for $195.

Nursing Tuesday: Nursing Tank

Yummie by Heather Thomson Nursing Tank | CorporetteMomsI’ve been eyeing this nursing tank, and may pull the trigger, even though the end feels like it’s in sight (Harrison is almost 8 months, and the plan was to nurse him for a year). I haven’t been super happy with other nursing/shapewear tanks I’ve tried, but this one seems to be missing the issues those present. One of the other ones I swear gives me plugged ducts every time, and yet another one doesn’t have the straps “anchored” in any way so when I release the clasp to nurse, the strap ends up somewhere down my back, leaving me to do a bit of a crazy dance when I’m done. This one is $68, and available in white and black at Nordstrom. Yummie by Heather Thomson Nursing Tank

Maternity Monday: Long Sleeve Tee Shirt Dress

Liz Lange for Target Maternity Long Sleeve Tee Shirt Dress | CorporetteMomsThis simple tee shirt dress has a lot of positive reviews on the Target website — unlike a lot of their other maternity clothes, interestingly enough. (For a good time, read reviews of this dress.) I like the simplicity of this one, the price, and the fact that it’s apparently versatile enough to dress up not only for work but even for fancier events (a number of reviewers note wearing it for their shower or company holiday party). It’s available in five colors, sizes XS-XXL. (Two other winners, according to reviewers, although they’re both a bit casual for my taste: here and here.)

Pumping-Friendly and Washable: Long Sleeve Naive Flower Wrap Top

Chaus Womens Long Sleeve Naive Flower Wrap TopI know readers are big fans of faux-wrap dresses for pumping, so I set out to look for a faux-wrap top that looked pumping-friendly.  These from Macy’s looked nice (and also machine washable), but of course I loved the color of this one from Chaus.  The top is $49 at Amazon.  Chaus Womens Long Sleeve Naive Flower Wrap Top

Washable Wednesday: Travel Knit Cap Sleeve Wrap Top

Chadwicks Travel Knit Cap Sleeve Wrap Top | CorporetteMomsChadwicks has a line of travel knits that are machine washable, packable (which I read as “wrinkle resistant”), and very affordable. There are skirts, pants, even knit blazers in the line, but my favorite is this faux wrap top with side ruching — it looks like something I’d wear the heck out of on the weekend or to work, with pants, a pencil skirt, jeans… whatever. It’s on sale from $19-$29, and available in six colors, sizes S-XL. Chadwicks Travel Knit Cap Sleeve Wrap Top
