Washable Wednesday: Border Print Twill Fit & Flare Dress

Ellen Tracy Border Print Twill Fit & Flare Dress | CorporetteMomsI like a lot of things about this washable dress — the colors, the print, the high neckline, the work-appropriate length… It seems like the kind of thing you could layer with a dark sweater in fall, a light sweater in spring, and dress it up or down. It was $104, but is now marked to $62 at Nordstrom (and the same print is also available in a washable faux-wrap style for $70, was $118). Ellen Tracy Border Print Twill Fit & Flare Dress

Two washable plus-size options are here and here.


Nursing Tuesday: Tulip-Hem Nursing Top

Old Navy Maternity Tulip-Hem Nursing Top | CorporetteMomsThis “kelp forest” tulip-hem top looks great for a nursing top — machine washable, functional, loose, and flattering. I like that with the elbow sleeves it could work now, or layer very neatly beneath a sweater or blazer come fall. It’s $25 full price at Old Navy, available in sizes XS-XXL (also available in gray). Today you can get 25% off at Old Navy with promo code MATH! Old Navy Maternity Tulip-Hem Nursing Top


Maternity Monday: A-Line Convertible Maternity Swing Coat

Modern Eternity A-Line Convertible Maternity Swing Coat | CorporetteMomsFor my money, this is the only kind of maternity coat to get if you’re going to splurge (particularly if you’re having a baby in December/January/February): a convertible coat. When you’re pregnant, the coat has a triangle-shaped insert that helps cover your belly — but once you give birth and start wearing the baby, you can turn the insert upside down, and use it to cover the baby. Lovely. The coat is $210 at Nordstrom. Modern Eternity A-Line Convertible Maternity Swing Coat

Finally Friday: ‘Amalia’ Half d’Orsay Skimmer Flat

Cole Haan 'Amalia' Half d'Orsay Skimmer Flat | CorporetteMomsIt’s the final weekend of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, ladies — what were your hits and misses? This ballet flat skimmer looks lovely, and seems to be a hit as it’s selling out in sizes and colors. There’s still a bunch of sizes left in both black and red, though, and for $129 it looks great. (This oxford/sneaker from Cole Haan is getting a lot of attention in the blogosphere — particularly in the gray — as a new, hot way to wear oxfords. To me it still looks like a more geriatric shoe — I actually bought it in black for my mom! This is the sneaker version of the super-lightweight oxfords I posted about on Corporette a while ago — if you can make these work with your personal style, do it, because it’s a great deal and a super, super lightweight shoe.) The ballet flat pictured will go back up to $198 when the sale ends August 3. Cole Haan ‘Amalia’ Half d’Orsay Skimmer Flat


Everyone Thursday: Jersey Blazer

Old Navy Jersey Blazer | CorporetteMomsI always like these simple jersey blazers from Old Navy, and the new season’s blazers are out — navy, black, and a lovely heather gray with a nice red lining. Love. They’re machine washable, available in regular (XS-XXL), tall, and petite sizes — as well as plus sizes — and only $40 full price. Today you can get 40% off if you use promo code YESPLEASE. Old Navy Jersey Blazer


Washable Wednesday: Ravello Top

Boden Ravello Top | CorporetteMomsI was intrigued on Monday when, in our discussion of everyone’s favorite online shopping sites, Boden got a number of shoutouts — I’ve admired their clothes a bunch but have yet to pull the trigger. They’re a frequent source for Washable Wednesday, though, so I may just have to. This Ravello top comes in a number of fun prints and bright colors, and looks like it has an easy fit — and it’s machine washable. It was $78, but is now marked to $39-$62 at Boden. Boden Ravello Top
