Washable Workwear Wednesday: Pink Blazer – Plus Too

This machine-wash, knit pink blazer at Zulily looks very shiny in the photos, but I expect it’s more like a typical jersey knit blazer. I haven’t seen a pink color like this anywhere else this season, and I like that this is very affordable at $30 and has lots of sizes. Pink Blazer – Plus Too

Here are a couple of options in plus sizes (that are dry clean, but not dry clean only). We also just rounded up five great blazers under $50 yesterday on Corporette!

Make Bathtime Easier with These 10 Tips

make bathtime easierBathtime with babies and little kids can be many things: fun, relaxing, hectic, boring, etc., depending on your kid’s age, current mood, and general attitude toward baths. Have you developed any tips and tricks to make bathtime easier?

First, I’ll share a few things we’ve done at our house to make our son’s bathtime easier:

1. Cushion your knees with one of those squishy kneeling pads that some people use for gardening or other home chores, like these. (I may have even picked up ours in the dollar section of CVS.) They make kneeling on the floor in front of the tub much more comfortable! This product is even fancier and more functional.

2. For a kid old enough to stand when you get her out of the tub, buy a hooded bathrobe like this one. It’ll keep her warm without any effort on her (or your part) — when you’re getting out the hair dryer or whatever — and it’ll start the drying-off process before you turn to a towel.

Accessory Tuesday: ‘Dilys’ Wedge Pump

This highly-rated shoe at Nordstrom is on sale from $129 to $96 (25% off). It looks like a great shoe for running around, either at the office or with the kids, and I like that it’s got 2.25″ covered heels. It seems very sleek, but comfortable as well. ‘Dilys’ Wedge Pump

Maternity Monday: Twist-Front Bodycon Dress

I lived in dresses from Old Navy when I was pregnant! I liked that they were machine washable and that they had fun colors, and in general I was really happy with them. This one looks lovely, particularly if you’re bored to death of black or navy dresses. It’s only $34, and you can get a lot of wear out of it by adding neutrals like black or white and fun colors like green accents if you really want to go to town. There are lots of good maternity options at Old Navy right now, including this dress and this dress. Pictured: Maternity Twist-Front Bodycon Dress.
