Washable Wednesday: Cap Sleeve Lynsey Dress

I didn’t realize that Hobbs has so many pieces that are machine washable! This dress is completely crafted from machine-washable fabric. The neckline seems flattering because it’s not too high or too low, and the darts and sleeves seems flattering as well. In general, it looks like a hit. It’s available in UK sizes 6-18 at Hobbs for $270. Cap Sleeve Lynsey Dress

A couple of lower-priced options are here and here, and here’s a plus-size option.

All Our Best Nursing & Pumping Advice

nursing and pumping advice for working momsAs you know, after the recent survey we decided to mix up the morning post schedule a bit. Now it’s basically a two-week schedule, with Maternity Monday alternating with Nursing/Pumping Tuesday. We already have a little sentence with links that we run on Maternity Mondays to direct pregnant readers to older “dressing professional while pregnant” advice — and since nursing/pumping posts will be only once every two weeks, I decided to direct readers to all our best nursing and pumping advice for working moms. So: I spent yesterday morning consolidating all the links and making two pages, one focused on Nursing Clothes for Working Moms, and one focused on Tips for Pumping at the Office. Please check them out! (Both pages are also linked on our “Start Here – Best of CorporetteMoms” page.)

For discussion today: Is there any aspect of these topics (nursing or pumping, or breastfeeding vs. formula feeding in general) that you’d like addressed in more detail, or updated? (Readers who formula-fed their babies exclusively or combined breastfeeding and formula-feeding: anyone care to write a guest post with tips?) I know readers have shared tips on pumping in your car — should we turn that into a post so it’s easier to find? (I think one reader in particular broke it down, and we don’t have an email address for her — if you’re reading, MAY we turn your advice on pumping in the car into a post?)

If you’re curious for the whole new CorporetteMoms morning post schedule, this is what we’re going to try for a while:

Nursing Tuesday: Cowl Neck Short Sleeve Nursing Top

I haven’t heard of the brand Nurture-Elle before, and although some of their pictures are kind of bizarre (at least at Nordstrom), this one looks like a good top. I like that there’s a strip of fabric at the top that you can push up as well as pull down so it leaves you less exposed. It seems like a nice top for pregnancy as well as nursing, and it’s made from stretch jersey and is machine washable. It’s $49 at Nordstrom in XS-XXL. Cowl Neck Short Sleeve Nursing Top

Psst: Looking for more info about nursing clothes for working moms, or tips for pumping at the office? We’ve got them both…

Beauty and Makeup Monday: CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction

Happy Monday! Whether you’ve always had curly hair or your hair got curlier after pregnancy and/or as you’ve aged (as mine has), as summertime approaches it means more air-drying for a lot of us curlies — and I have to give a shoutout for this lovely CC cream for hair. It smells wonderful, leaves my curls soft but boingy, and has UV protection. (The full 10 list of things, from Sephora’s website: “It provides moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, anti-breakage, heat protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability, and strength—everything your hair needs to look absolutely beautiful, healthy, and flawless.”) It’s $12-$42, at Sephora.

Family Friday: Turkish Bath Towels

I never traveled extensively during college or in my 20s, which is normally what leads people to start singing the praises of Turkish bath towels — but they’re my new favorite thing, especially for kids and the beach, so I’m giving them a shoutout. These are big enough to be a bath sheet, and they’re very absorbent while also being super thin, which means they don’t take up the entire beach bag. They also dry really quickly, so they don’t stay wet very long between your kids’ dips in the pool or the ocean. This one is $22 and highly reviewed at Amazon, and it comes in 34 (!) colors. Cacala Pestemal Turkish Bath Towels 37 x 70 100% Cotton

(I’ve been eyeing this Turkish poncho for the kids but haven’t pulled the trigger yet — they also make superthin bathrobes, which I might consider for myself, particularly for our next vacation with the in-laws.)

Budget Thursday: Knot-Front Top

We featured this top last week over at Corporette, based on a reader recommendation, and if you’re looking for a really affordable top for work, this one is hard to beat. It was originally $30 but is now as low as $8.99 (!) at Kohl’s. It’s machine washable, and according to readers it’s great to wear under a blazer. There are a zillion colorways in regular, petite, and plus sizes, including some prints (some that look nice, and some you may need to try on in person…). (Try this link or this link to see all offerings in all colors and size ranges.) Pictured: Dana Buchman Knot-Front Top
