Everyone Thursday: Cashmere Cardigan

Lord & Taylor Cashmere Cardigan | CorporetteMomsIf the weather this week is any indication, it’s going to be a c-o-l-d winter, ladies. While cashmere can seem tough to care for around kiddos, there’s no reason you can’t keep a luxe cashmere cardigan at the office or for after the kids go to bed (or, hey, just machine wash in Woolite if sticky little hands do get ahold of it). I like the look of this big, cozy cardigan from Lord & Taylor, available in four colors, sizes XS-XL (also in plus sizes and, allegedly, petites, although I can’t seem to grab a direct link…). L&T was mentioned by readers as being some of the best cashmere in previous discussions over at Corporette, and they’re having a big cashmere sale now. The cardigan was $268, but is now marked to $160. Lord & Taylor Cashmere Cardigan

Washable Wednesday: Jersey Jacquard Dress

Boden Jersey Jacquard DressIt feels rare to find a dress that is fully lined, machine washable, and, well, cute — but Boden does it again and again. I like this black and white version fine, but I LOVE the gray and black version (which isn’t shown on a model, alas). I like the swingy skirt but respectable hemline, the sleeves, and the stain-friendly patterns (it comes in four dotted colors). The dress, of course, is machine washable, and is $148 at Boden.

Nursing Tuesday: Split Neck Nursing Tops

ON Maternity Split Neck Nursing TopsIf you are a nursing mother going anywhere for Thanksgiving, you need a top like this. It keeps your body just about as covered as it’s going to be while nursing — on the plane, at the terminal, when you’re at someone’s house for Thanksgiving and it’s hard to get some privacy… it’s really perfect. It’s available in sizes XS-XXL, gray and black, for $24.95. ON Maternity Split Neck Nursing Tops

Maternity Monday: Wool Boucle Coat

HM Mama Wool Boucle CoatIt’s gotten rather cold, suddenly, so I thought I’d go on the hunt for maternity coats for pregnant readers. The usual budget suspects like Kohls, Old Navy, and Macy’s all have coats for under $100 — but my absolute favorite is this wool boucle coat from H&M. It looks sleek and sophisticated, as well as warm. It’s $99, and available in sizes XS-XL. H&M Mama Wool Boucle Coat

P.S. Note that Nordstrom has a convertible coat for $150 — I’ve only seen much more expensive versions before.  Even though I’m less fond of the puffy coat look, this would be my coat of choice if I were pregnant — as well as on maternity leave — during super cold months.

P.P.S.  Note that Piperlime has a pretty killer “take 30% off any order over $200” sale right now, with tons of great accessories to pick from, including Corporette reader favorites like Stuart Weitzman and Kate Spade New York included in the mix.

P.P.P.S. Note that sister brands Gap and Banana Republic are both 40% off today, and Old Navy is 35% off, all with code CHEER.

 

Finally Friday: Evatex Packing Cubes

Evatex Packing CubesI don’t know how traveling with kids is for YOU guys, but for us, the packing equation has totally changed… because my toddler gets the majority of the space! We bring: all of his outfits (I like to travel with at least 3-4 complete outfits, no matter how short the trip, in case of messy eating/play, or of course, bathroom accidents) … his teddy… his blanket…  it’s kind of ridiculous. These packing cubes look like they would at LEAST help us keep our stuff separate and well defined. I like the variety of colors offered, and the deep discount: they were $89, but are now marked to $25 (and eligible for Prime). Evatex Packing Cubes

Psst — I’ve mentioned that I draw what I want to pack before, but I swear by it now that I’m usually the one packing for the entire family.

Everyone Thursday: Asymmetric Acrylic Bar Pendant

Asymmetric Acrylic Bar PendantIt’s hard to beat BaubleBar right now for personalized gifts — from prices to selection, they have a TON of great stuff. I constantly wear my Maya Brenner initial necklaces (I have a G in gold and silver, for our last name), but I kind of like the idea of wearing a few of these pendant necklaces, stacked, in different colors with an initial for J and H (for my sons Jack and Harrison). The pendant can be on a gold or silver chain, 16-18″, uppercase or lowercase, comes in 24 colors of acrylics, and each bar can hold up to 3 initials.  Nice.  Prices start at $44.
