Feeding Tuesday: Non-Spill Toddler Gyro Bowl

When I did our last roundup of the best products for feeding your toddler, I saw this interesting bowl, which is designed to help kids avoid spilling food. We haven’t used it, because we’re kind of past the point where there are accidental spills (everything now is on purpose — yay toddlers!), but it looks very interesting if you still have kids in that stage. I like the bright colors (you can also get hot pink), and the bowl is $8.99 at Amazon with free shipping (not Prime). Meidus Non-Spill Toddler Gyro Bowl

Maternity Monday: The Long Sleeve Tee

Everyone swears by Hatch — people love it — and although their styles tend to be a little too casual for most conservative offices, this tee just sort of has this perfect, cool look. It’s a great maternity tee (if you feel like spending this much on a maternity tee). It’s at Shopbop for $98. The Long Sleeve Tee

Update: This has now sold out at Shopbop, but it’s available directly from Hatch in six colors for $98.

Finally Friday: 696 Sneaker

I seem to be the only mom my age who did not get the memo that we’re all supposed to have black-and-white sneakers. If you, like me, are hunting for a black-and-white sneaker for the weekend, this New Balance one seems to be the most popular. I see a million women wearing this, often with cropped pants and little ankle socks. It’s $80 at Nordstrom, where it’s also in a gray in case you want to buck the trend. Amazon has some other color choices as well. 696 Sneaker

Everyone Thursday: Page Pointy Toe Pump

This pretty kitten heel pump is from Calvin Klein, whose shoes are surprisingly well-regarded. Every time I see one online they’ve got a really great rating, and we’ve included their Gayle pumps in the Corporette Workwear Hall of Fame because they’ve been around for years and always get high marks. These come in five colors in sizes 5-11 (what’s still in stock depends on size/color), and they’re only $108 at Nordstrom. Calvin Klein Page Pointy Toe Pump
