Washable Wednesday: Lindsey Dress

Boden Lindsey DressHappy Wednesday! I’m liking this colorful, happy dress from Boden. In addition to being machine washable, the bodice is lined with polyester (which can be good both for mommy pooch issues as well as, well, headlight issues), and I like that the outer material has 3% elastane in it for a bit of stretch and recovery. It’s available in black as well as four bright colors, sizes 2-18, petites, regulars, and tall sizes. It’s $148. Boden Lindsey Dress


Feeding Tuesday: Foogo Thermos

Foogo ThermosThis little thermos has served us SO well over the past 1.5 years (at least?!). We bought it when Jack started daycare so he could have cold milk all day (they had a refrigerator there, but we didn’t entirely trust it — and he often wanted to drink whatever was left over on the way home). Amazingly, any milk left in the thermos was still cold. This is the first winter that he’s getting into hot cocoa, so I’ve been using it to put his lukewarm hot cocoa in — sometimes he drinks it immediately; sometimes he forgets about it and finds it an hour later, but it’s still warm. It’s easy to clean, not too prone to the grossness of toddler straws (some of our other straws seem to be growing a colony every time I look inside), and pretty darn leakproof. It was $19, but is now marked to $13.49 at Amazon (where it’s eligible for Prime). Thermos FOOGO Phases Stainless Steel Straw Bottle, Blue/Yellow, 10 Ounce

Maternity Monday: Short-Sleeve Empire Dress

Motherhood Maternity Short-Sleeve Empire Dress | CorporetteMomsHappy New Year! I’m really liking this simple, short-sleeved black dress (with nursing access) from Motherhood Maternity. Not only is it machine washable, but it’s also a great deal: it’s $29.98, but if you buy two you get the second one 50% off. I’d try it with a higher jewel-necked long-sleeve tee for wintertime, or with a blazer or sweater jacket on top. Motherhood Maternity Short-Sleeve Empire Dress

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

Maternity Monday: V-Neck Mono Print Blouse

Mamalicious V-Neck Mono Print BLouseASOS has a TON of maternity stuff on sale, including this simple, chic blouse.  I like that it’s machine washable, modest (I hate how far too many maternity tops have too low of a neckline!) and it looks wearable in almost every season of the year.  It was $60.64, but is now marked to $30.32 — with free shipping both ways.

Finally Friday: Miko Pump

Isaac Mizrahi New York Miko Pump | CorporetteMomsHappy Friday! Is everyone ready for the holidays yet? These great little heels look wearable and sleek — I like the cap toe and buckle detail, as well as the bit of gold on the heel. The 2.5″ heel is $85 at 6pm.com (available in three colors: gray, black, and beige “saddle”). Looks like stock is pretty low right now, so if you find that your size is sold out, try Nordstrom (for the gray color only). Isaac Mizrahi New York Miko Pump
