Finally Friday: Opal Pump

Sam Edelman Opal Pump | CorporetteMomsSam Edelman is a brand that I had not heard of — or at least had not taken seriously — until a few years ago. Now, the Petty boots and Okala heels are almost standard issue, and it looks like these Opal heels aren’t far behind. They have 28 reviews on Zappos with a 5-star rating overall, and come in sizes 5-11. Sam Edelman Opal

Everyone Thursday: Browsing for Books Cardigan

ModCloth Browsing for Books Cardigan | CorporetteMomsHat tip to editor Kate who found this cardigan — I like it so much I may have to buy one for myself. It’s made of a hand washable ribbed knit with an elasticized, cinched back panel. It seems like a great thing to wear over a sheath dress or with trousers whether you’re pregnant, nursing, or beyond. Another big plus: it’s $39.99. Nice. ModCloth Browsing for Books Cardigan

Here’s a plus-size alternative.

Washable Wednesday: City Jersey Printed Dress

Talbots City Jersey Print Dress | CorporetteMomsIt always happens: a site is having a great sale, and I find one of the few pieces that ISN’T on sale… sigh. Fortunately, this dress is pretty affordable to begin with at $129, and I like the dark brown pattern — it almost has a tweed/crosshatch effect going on, which is quite nice. I like the high neckline, the three-quarter length sleeves, and the ruched side. It is machine washable, and available in misses, petites, woman, and woman petites sizes. Talbots City Jersey Printed Dress


Nursing Tuesday: Avebury Nursing Top

Isabella Oliver Avebury Nursing TopLet’s ignore the fact, for the moment, that this is my very favorite color, and focus instead on all the other great stuff this top has going for it. It can be worn in both maternity and while nursing (and even if pumping, I suspect). It looks super cozy and warm, but still professional and flattering. It has a modest neckline, and comes in three colors, sizes 0-5. And, it’s machine wash/tumble dry. Lovely. It’s available online-only at Nordstrom for $115. Isabella Oliver Avebury Nursing Top

Maternity Monday: Leopard Print Sweater Dress

Loft Maternity Leopard Print Sweater Dress | CorporetteMomsI am loving all of the blue leopard influences at Loft right now, including this interesting wool sweater dress. I like that it isn’t too booby, too twee (no bow or other cuteness on the bump!) and I like that it just generally looks like a cute dress for work or weekend. It’s $94.50 at Loft, full price (but you can use code FLASH to get 60% off). Loft Maternity Leopard Print Sweater Dress

Finally Friday: Snake-Embossed Trimmed Reversible Tote Bag

Neiman Marcus Snake-Embossed Trimmed Reversible Tote Bag | CorporetteMomsI found this bag this week while looking for a comp to a Corporette coffee break — and couldn’t believe the price. The bag looks well constructed, soft, has nice colors, is reversible, and is only $52… Amazing. It comes in about five colors, all reversible. Neiman Marcus Snake-Embossed Trimmed Reversible Tote Bag
