Maternity Monday: Essential Maternity Blazer

Tart Essential Maternity Blazer | CorporetteMomsI have mixed opinions on maternity blazers, but I do like the looks of this one from Tart — the silhouette is versatile, and the fabric looks comfortable (and is machine washable). The ikat is a fun, on-trend print, but the gray will take you far. They’re both $128 at Nordstrom. Tart Essential Maternity Blazer

Finally Friday: Lille Lace-Up Point

Boden Lille Lace-Up PointBoden has a number of cute flats right now, including these Aquazurra-inspired lace-ups, which also come in navy and silver.  Orange isn’t normally my color, but I (think I) saw a woman on the street wearing these and couldn’t get over how chic she looked — it was an all black outfit, but I’d also wear them with all shades of blue, as well as paired with another neutral and a pop of red or pink. I particularly like the zips up the back for easy-on, easy-off shoes. They’re $138 at Boden, available in sizes 5.5-10.5, also available in navy and silver. Lille Lace-Up Point


Everyone Thursday: Scattered Mandalas Print Wrap

Michael Stars Wraps Oooh: hat tip to Kate for this delicious find:  Michael Stars is now doing scarves, which (to me at least) is new.  And what scarves they are: bright, colorful, happy, with interesting patterns and color combinations. I’m liking this “Scattered Mandalas” wrap the best, but it’s tough to choose.  I’d wear it as a scarf by day, a wrap by night, and even a light pareo if you have some casual pooltime in your future.  The pictured scarf is $48.  Michael Stars

Washable Wednesday: Back Zip Pencil Skirt
