Finally Friday: Vera Bradley Baby Bag

Vera Bradley Baby BagI haven’t seen Vera Bradley’s black diaper bags before, but they look great — lightweight, functional, professional.  Zappos also has this in a number of bright, happy colors which I’m guessing would do a great job of hiding stains.  The bags are $138 at Zappos; Vera Bradley has a few other options at the brand’s website.

Everyone Thursday: Open Front Blazer

Three Dots Open BlazerI am generally a big fan of Three Dots, and this washable blazer looks like that great hybrid between a cardigan and blazer, and should be friendly in pregnancy, while nursing, and beyond.  It’s available in sizes XS-XL at Bloomingdale’s for $238. Three Dots Open Front Blazer

Psst: here’s a similar, budget-friendly option in red, and a plus-size option.

Washable Wednesday: Lucie Washable Dress

Alex Marie Lucie Washable DressI’m not familiar with the brand, but I’ve noticed a number of cute dresses explicitly billed as “washable” in the name. This cute sheath dress comes in sizes 4-18, and is available exclusively at Dillard’s for $139. Alex Marie Lucie Washable Dress

Pumping Tuesday: Wrap Dress

WHBM Printed Wrap DressCorporette readers were talking the other day about pump-friendly clothes, and this wrap dress was mentioned.  I’m generally a fan of black and white prints, and the three-quarter sleeves and A-line skirt look lovely.  The dress is available in regular and petite sizes 00-16 for $140.  WHBM Printed Wrap Dress

Here’s a $39 version (in very limited sizes, alas).  Readers, what were/are your favorite dresses for pumping? Was there a brand or specific product that you loved?

Everyone Thursday: Day Tripper Bib Necklace

kate spade daytripper necklace(Yeah, still working on the names for the days)… Nordstrom’s clearance sale is on, huzzah! I like this statement necklace from Kate Spade, which I think is wearable in all stages of mom-dom. While pregnant and nursing a necklace comes in handy to distract from your bust area and keep the focus on your face… whereas in the post-nursing stage it’s super easy to throw on and add some pizzazz to an outfit quickly and easily. It’s available in four color combos, and was $98, but is now marked to $49-66.

Psst: Today’s admin question: how many of you are getting multiple copies of each email? (If you signed up for both email lists, that’s the easy answer — you may want to unsubscribe from one of them.)  Are you liking the “blog broadcast” version of the email (where you get an email as soon as there’s a new post on the blog), or should I turn that feature off?

Washable Wednesday: Perfect Form Ponte Burgundy Jacket

WHBM Perfect Form Ponte Burgundy JacketHappy hump day! This gorgeous burgundy blazer is ponte lined with satin, all of which tells you it’s going to be stretchy, machine washable, and generally pretty sturdy. I like the ruffle at the collar and the half-belt details at the back. It’s available in regular and petites at White House | Black Market for $150. Perfect Form Ponte Burgundy Jacket

P.S.: here’s a $29 option (which also comes in sizes up to XXL).
P.P.S.: I just noticed that last week’s Washable Wednesday option is also available at Lord & Taylor in black and blue, for $64 (not counting their coupon codes), in sizes 0-16.
