Family Friday: Cut, Sculpt, and Roll Play Set with Tools

Oooh: My boys both loved the older version of this play dough set, so it’s nice to see that there’s an updated version. (If you’re on the hunt for more, we’re big into play dough at our house: this set is great if you’ve got a young’un, and my eldest was always a big fan of the Chuck and Friends/Play-Doh collaboration — but with the latter, skip the gravel grinder because it leaves you with tiny dried Play-Doh pieces all over your kitchen table!) This pictured updated set is $10.99 at Amazon. Melissa & Doug Cut, Sculpt, and Roll Clay Play Set With 8 Tools and 4 Colors of Modeling Dough

Budget Thursday: Reversible Woven Cami

I did not realize it until I found this particular reversible camisole, but WHBM has an entire line of reversible clothes, including camisoles, tops, and dresses in regular and plus sizes. Now, while this can be great — particularly if you’re traveling — I would note that if you’re dealing with a print on one side and a dark solid on the other side, you’re probably best advised to wear the print side first to avoid the inevitable deodorant stains — then wear the dark side second. In any event, I think this woven camisole is cute, and I like both the polka dot and the stripey side, and I also like the way that the reverse side peeks out a bit at the bottom. The pictured cami is $49. Reversible Woven Cami

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Machine-Washable Merino Vee

Did you know that Banana Republic has machine washable merino sweaters? They come in petite and regular sizes in colors like cobalt, burgundy, and gray heather — and they have a lot of great reviews. The pictured sweater was originally $68 and is marked down to $53.99. Machine-Washable Merino Vee

For a plus-size option, try this Lord & Taylor merino wool cardigan, which comes in eight colors in 0X–3X. (It’s labeled hand wash rather than machine wash, however.) It’s marked down from $94 to $34.99, and right now you can get an extra 20% off with code LTLOVE. That brings you down to $27.99!

Accessory Tuesday: Sharna Cross Strap

These shoes from Rockport are very highly rated at Zappos, and they’re on sale, too (for $55.99 from $80). They look like they’d be great shoes for running around after your kiddo, but they’re also flattering, particularly because the crossed straps dip below the line where the typical ankle strap would go. Rockport Sharna Cross Strap

Maternity Monday: ‘Nouveau’ Sheath Maternity Dress

I always like Leota sheath dresses. This one, I’ll grant you, has an unusual print, but I kind of like it — it’s a fun, spring-y plaid and it’s a nice change from the typical maternity dresses. Sizes are XS–L, and the dress is machine washable (lay flat to dry). You can find it at Nordstrom for $98, and Amazon has it in different patterns (sizes include XL, which is sold out at Nordstrom) as well as the plus-size version‘Nouveau’ Sheath Maternity Dress

Weekend Open Thread

Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

Even though wearing white can be perilous as a mom, I still think a white floaty top like this is lovely for the weekend. This choker style is kind of new, but I can see myself wearing it, unlike a lot of styles right now, like the cold-shoulder trend or the off-the-shoulder trend. (I don’t know if they feel wrong to me as a mom or just because of my age and place in life these days.) The choker tops seem like a fun look I could do on the weekends — in part because I don’t remember wearing them at any point in my youth! This one has some nice details that give it an ethereal touch that I really like, such as the sheer blouson sleeves and ladder trim. It’s machine washable, too, and available at Amazon in sizes XS–XL for $60. Ella Moon Women’s Shylah Long Sleeve Choker Top

Here’s an option in plus sizes at Nordstrom — and another plus-size option at Nordstrom with a lower price.
