Maternity Monday: Leopard Print Sweater Dress

Loft Maternity Leopard Print Sweater Dress | CorporetteMomsI am loving all of the blue leopard influences at Loft right now, including this interesting wool sweater dress. I like that it isn’t too booby, too twee (no bow or other cuteness on the bump!) and I like that it just generally looks like a cute dress for work or weekend. It’s $94.50 at Loft, full price (but you can use code FLASH to get 60% off). Loft Maternity Leopard Print Sweater Dress

Maternity Monday: Boyfriend Maternity Jean

James Jeans Boyfriend Maternity Jean | CorporetteMomsMost work places don’t “celebrate” Columbus Day. However, a lot of school districts — and many daycares — are closed today. Uh, hooray. So if you’re home (or working from home) today, let’s talk about maternity jeans. Which were your favorite? Nordstrom Rack has a bunch of designer ones on sale, and I like the look of these James Jeans boyfriend ones, featuring a full belly band, and, at $96, a price 53% off the original. Nice. James Jeans Boyfriend Maternity Jean

Here’s a plus-size alternative.

And here’s an interesting opinion piece on what to tell your kids on Columbus Day.

Maternity Monday: Maternity Tights

Assets Maternity TightsHmmn: I am slightly alarmed (for you guys, at least) that my favorite pair of maternity tights — ASSETS by Sara Blakley — seems to be really hard to find right now.  Amazon still has them, though, so stock up.  Ladies, which are/were your favorite maternity tights?  The tights are $18 (plus shipping, alas) at Amazon.

Edited to add: D’oh, of course they’re available at Target, which may even be where I bought mine originally…

Feeding Tuesday: Maternity and Nursing Twinkle Dress

Dote Maternity and Nursing Twinkle Dress | CorporetteMomsThis dress looks great for maternity, nursing, and even pumping. I like the dark, sedate colors, as well as the mostly glowing reviews. It’s $99-$109 at Amazon in sizes S-XL. Dote Women’s Maternity and Nursing Twinkle Dress

Maternity Monday: Jersey Shift Dress

old navy maternity jersey shift dress | CorporetteMomsOld Navy is having a maternity sale (prices up to 40% off) through October 1, and I like a lot of what I see in there. This jersey shift dress (pictured) looks chic, and I like that it’s machine washable — it was $33 but is now marked to $30, available in sizes XS-XXL. I also like this dress. It’s fleece, so the thicker fabric should make it more wearable if your complaint with jersey dresses is that they “show everything,” but it should also be nice and cozy for the winter. I also really like this dolman-sleeved top, which reviewers note is great to wear to work. Old Navy Maternity Jersey Shift Dress

Maternity Monday: Jersey Wrap Dress

Rosie Pope Jersey Wrap Dress | CorporetteMomsI never splurged on Rosie Pope dresses during my pregnancies, but this wrap dress looks like a great basic for work, and I like that “wash cold” laundering instruction. It even looks like it could be a great option for pumping and for the postpartum period (when you may or may not fit into your regular clothes). It’s $178 at ShopBop. Readers who’ve bought Rosie Pope, please chime in — what were your thoughts on the quality? Did anyone have this exact dress? Rosie Pope Jersey Wrap Dress
