Nursing Tuesday: Nursing Top with Wrap Overlay

ASOS Maternity Nursing Top with Wrap OverlayASOS has a number of tops like this, but this particular one is my favorite because the bottom layer is the same color, which makes the top feel more modern and sleek to me, whether you’re pregnant or nursing — the other ones feel like a cami beneath a crop top, or some such. The top looks functional (so many nursing tops fail to both let your baby nurse and keep your bits under wraps!), and at $45 it’s affordable. It’s available in both “khaki” (pictured) and orange, sizes 2-16. ASOS Maternity NURSING Top With Wrap Overlay In Texture

Maternity Monday: Ponte Knit Maternity Dress

Eva Alexander London Ponte Knit Maternity 2Happy Monday! I love this simple ponte dress for summer and beyond — the V-neck is nice and high, yet flattering, the sleeves look comfortable, and the seams and darts look slimming.  I also like that the dress is machine washable.  It’s $128, available exclusively online at Nordstrom.  Eva Alexander London Ponte Knit Maternity Dress

Finally Friday: Leona Slingback

Bella-Vita Leona | CorporetteMomsI keep seeing this kind of shoe around — with flowy pants, with ankle pants, with skinny jeans — and I like that this one comes from a comfort brand, doesn’t have a huge platform, and comes in a zillion widths and three colors. It’s $89 at Zappos. Bella-Vita Leona Slingback

Everyone Thursday: Cabochon Bypass Hinge Bracelet

Alexis Bittar Cabochon Bypass Hinge Bracelet, GoldenI continue to be obsessed with Alexis Bittar, and I like this blingy bracelet just in over at Last Call. It seems like the bracelet doesn’t have the pull-factor of earrings (which I will describe as “that fear that your kid will playfully yank your earrings out of your head”), it doesn’t have the sometimes-they-fit-sometimes-they don’t factor of rings, and they don’t have the heavy, clunky feeling of statement necklaces (as much as I love ’em). It’s $119 (was $170). Alexis Bittar Cabochon Bypass Hinge Bracelet, Golden

Washable Wednesday: Silk Pintuck Blouse

Talbots Washable Silk Pintuck Blouse | CorporetteThis washable silk blouse from Talbots looks promising — I like the four colors it comes in, the pintucks in the front, the roll sleeves, and the half-placket.  I also love that it’s on sale: it was $99, but is now marked to $55. It’s available in regular, petite, plus, and plus-size petite sizes.  Washable Silk Pintuck Blouse

Feeding Tuesday: Num Num Dips

Num-Num-DipsInteresting — hat tip to editor Kate who found these cool kinda-spoons.  The idea is that there’s no “up,” so there’s no right or wrong way to use it.  Harry just turned one (yesterday, in fact!) and is still doing that comical thing where he insists on feeding himself but turns the spoon upside down the second he gets it — so I’m going to give these a go.  They’re $9.99 at Amazon. Num Num Dips
