Everyone Thursday: Drape-Front Open Knit Cardigan

Tahari Drape-Front Open Knit Cardigan, GravelPretty, pretty. A drapey cardigan (that instructs you to “hand wash,” which I instantly translate as “machine wash with Woolite on delicate,” because that’s how I roll) works for everyone, whether you’re pregnant, nursing, or beyond. I think the dark gray color is lovely, and I like that this one is longer in the back than the front — that is strangely hard to find. I like it open, as shown, but I’d also probably try it belted. It was $98, but is now marked to $51.75 at Last Call.Tahari Drape-Front Open Knit Cardigan, Gravel

Washable Wednesday: Cowl Neck

Long Sleeve Cowl Neck Top This is a simple little top, but I really like it — I think the cowlneck looks flattering and a bit dressy. Wear it with crisp trousers or ankle pants to dress it up even more, perhaps with a great watch or a brooch as an accessory.  Great price, too: it was $19, but is now marked to $13.98 at TargetLong Sleeve Cowl Neck Top


Feeding Tuesday: Baby Mum-Mum Rice Biscuit

Hot-Kid Baby Mum-Mum Banana Flavor Rice Biscuit | CorporetteMomsI’ll admit it: we relied heavily on the Mum Mum when my first son was little. In fact, we bought them in bulk and kept packets in both of our strollers, in the diaper bag, in my regular bag… heck, anywhere. They’re portable, not too messy, pretty tough to choke on, and my goodness do babies love these things — it buys you 15-20 minutes of peaceful eating at the table. Now that we’re at the Mum Mum stage with my second son, I’m so happy to be back. We always got banana in bulk ($16.74 for a pack of 6), but that’s us. Hot-Kid Baby Mum-Mum Banana Flavor Rice Biscuit

Maternity Monday: Polka Dot Mock Wrap Dress

Seraphine Polka Dot Mock Wrap Maternity Dress | CorporetteI always associate Kate Middleton with the brand Seraphine — I believe she’s worn a ton of their dresses during her pregnancies — and I like this springy wrap dress. This navy polka dot version (also the cobalt) version looks classic, flattering, and lovely. It’s $89-$95 at Amazon. Seraphine Polka Dot Mock Wrap Maternity Dress

Rockport Comfort Craving Pilot Path Mt Pump | CorporetteMomsThese 2.75″ simple pumps are stuffed to the gills with comfort features — flexible rubber sole, sneaker-like cushioning, and Adidas technology.

Everyone Thursday: Crystal Embellished Sabre Bib Necklace

Alexis Bittar Crystal Embellished Sabre Bib Necklace | CorporetteMomsHappy Thursday!
