Everyone Thursday: Wool Cashmere Blend Wrap

Nordstrom 'Peacock Tissue' Wool Cashmere Blend Wrap | CorporetteAm I the only one who, in winter, has been known to take my scarf off and add it as another layer to my child’s bunting? For a long time I used to keep a very thin cashmere scarf in my diaper bag anyway, just for that very reason — I even used to pull it out in restaurants that were too cold. It packed down better than most of the hoodies or sweaters, and I didn’t have to remember to keep changing the size. I like this wool/cashmere scarf from Nordstrom — all of the color combos look lovely. It’s part of Nordstrom’s clearance sale — was $98, NOW $65. Nordstrom ‘Peacock Tissue’ Wool Cashmere Blend Wrap

Washable Wednesday: Straight Leg Ponte Pants

Eileen Fisher Straight Leg Ponte PantsThe Nordstrom Clearance Sale has started, and there are some great pieces. This morning’s washable find: these highly rated ponte pants from Eileen Fisher. The bad news here is that there are very limited sizes, unless you’re a petite — but there’s a highly rated pencil skirt and slim pants, both machine washable as well. The pictured pants are $208 (not part of the sale, alas), but the pencil skirt is 40% off and the slimmer pants are 50% off. Eileen Fisher Straight Leg Ponte Pants

I’ll be doing a roundup for general workwear picks on Corporette later today — but note that Nordstrom clearance sales are a great time to stock up on shoes for the littles. (I think this sale was historically focused on the men’s sale — and indeed they have a TON of men’s stuff 50% off and higher.)


Nursing Tuesday: Mama Scoop Cowl Neck

nursing-top-PattyBoutikAs I’ve mentioned before, I think every nursing mom needs at least one or two proper “nursing tops.” They should be functional from the dual purpose of a) letting you feed your child b) without exposing your entire breast and/or belly to the world. It’s a bonus if it looks cute with jeans, trousers, skirts, and more — all of which this $35 top looks like it will do. (PLUS, you wear it while you’re pregnant.) It’s available in this light blue and a black, sizes S-XL — at Amazon. PattyBoutik Mama Scoop Cowl Neck


Maternity Monday: Nursing Wrap Front Dress

Mamalicious Nursing Wrap Front DressThis jersey dress from Mamalicious looks great for work — comfortable, functional both before and after pregnancy, and also professional — love the high neckline and long sleeves. It’s $65.40 at ASOS. Mamalicious Nursing Wrap Front Dress

Finally Friday: ‘Damian’ Pump

Charles David 'Damian' Pump | CorporetteMomsOooh, nice: I like these low pumps from Charles David. The heel is only 1.75″, they have 15 mostly positive reviews, and they come in 7 colors, including this wine leather (you know I love a purple pump) and a lovely bright cobalt. They’re 50% off at Nordstrom — were $200, now $99. Charles David ‘Damian’ Pump

Everyone Thursday: One Button Soft Blazer

BR One Button Soft BlazerBanana Republic has a number of soft blazers in stock right now, but this soft blazer looks like it has promise to be that great basic black blazer to go with everything.  It’s available in regular, tall and petite sizes, and is full price at $150 — but with code BRSOME it comes down to $112.50 (through 2/8).  Nice!  BR One Button Soft Blazer

Psst: Note that sister site Gap is having the biggest little kids and baby sale (up to 40% off, plus an extra 10% off if you spend $100+), and Old Navy also has all kids on sale, up to 50% off (plus free shipping with $25+).

P.P.S.: if you’re on the hunt for a classic Missoni knit blazer, this one is deeply discounted.

UPDATE: OK, one more link to share: Figure 8 Maternity is having a 5-day sale on Bravado bras.  Buy 3 get 1 free — not bad.
