Washable Wednesday: Travel Tricotine All-Day Dress

Pendleton Travel Tricotine All-Day Dress | CorporetteMomsHappy Wednesday, ladies! I’m liking this wrinkle-resistant, machine washable dress that is steeply marked down over at Pendleton. The below-the-knee length would be a miss for me, but it’s easy enough to buy the petites version or get it hemmed — and the great discount is worth the chance. The dress was $150, but is now $39 — available in three colors, in petite, plus, and regular sizes 04-18. Pendleton Travel Tricotine All-Day Dress


Nursing Tuesday: Angelo Nursing and Maternity Shirt

BellyMoms Angelo Nursing and Maternity Shirt | CorporetteMomsSo many of these nursing shirts look a little… like something a nurse would wear. As in, give this model a clipboard, some white pants and an ID card on a lanyard, and BOOM. Still… I have to say this one looks not only comfortable, but functional. I’d just, you know, avoid white pants and long pendant necklaces (unless you actually are a nurse, in which case, rock out with your bad self). BellyMoms Angelo Nursing and Maternity Shirt


Maternity Monday: Foldover-Waist Linen-Blend Pants

Old Navy Maternity Foldover-Waist Linen-Blend Pants | CorporetteMomsPregnancy can sometimes bring with it some unwelcome leg issues — varicose veins, weight gain, not being able to see your legs to shave properly, etc. I say, wear dresses if you want — but if you’re personally uncomfortable with that, then these linen pants look great. They come in five colors, and are $35 at Old Navy, sizes XS-XXL. Old Navy Maternity Foldover-Waist Linen-Blend Pants

Finally Friday: ‘Jane’ Handbag

MZ Wallace 'Jane' Handbag | CorporetteMomsI have always admired MZ Wallace’s line of intelligent, lightweight bags, and — while a lot has changed with two kiddos in my life! — that admiration hasn’t changed. There are a bunch of styles to choose from, but I like this Jane bag — great size, lots of pockets, easy-wipe nylon. Love it. The pictured bag is $365 at Nordstrom. MZ Wallace ‘Jane’ Handbag

Everyone Thursday: Open Front Cardigan

Bobeau Open Front Cardigan | CorporetteMomsI like this casual, hand washable cardigan from Bobeau — it’s soft, flattering, and easy. (Their maxi skirts are also pretty great for a casual summer day.) The cardigan is $29-$42 at Nordstrom. Bobeau Open Front Cardigan
