Everyone Thursday: Serenite Necklace

Juliet Company Serenite NecklaceI always like the color red for necklaces, and I’ll tell you why: it’s a flattering color on most women, and it usually makes you look more awake, which is why red lipstick is so popular.  And yet… red lipstick can be so hard to wear (I haaaaate the uneven fading and need to apply with total precision), and even red sweaters and the like can be a lot to work into a regular rotation of work outfits.  Necklaces, though, are great: grab ’em, throw ’em on as you run out the door with almost anything you’re wearing, and out you go.  This one has the added benefit of being only $66 — nice.  Juliet Company Serenite Necklace

Washable Wednesday: Concorde Print Faux Wrap Dress

Adrianna Papell Concorde Print Faux Wrap DressHappy Wednesday! I really like this faux wrap dress from Adrianna Papell, part of some of the great sales going on over at Nordstrom right now. The print would hide any child-related spills (or, hey, if you’re the messy one, it’ll hide those too), and a number of readers have talked about preferring faux wrap dresses for pumping. The neckline and hemline both look modest, I like that it has sleeves, and — score! — it is, indeed, machine washable. It was $139, but is now marked to $83.40.

Pumping Tuesday: ‘Vibrant Paisley’ Infinity Scarf

Tasha Vibrant Paisley Infinity Scarf | CorporetteI always think of infinity scarves as being a great addition to a breastfeeding/pumping mom’s wardrobe — you can use them for extra coverage while you’re pumping, a pattern (such as this vibrant paisley) hides milk stains and other baby stains (spit up, sticky fingers, etc.), and is an easy way to add color and variation to what may be a limited wardrobe as you work to get back into your pre-pregnancy clothes. I like this vibrant paisley scarf, available in blue and orange — it was $28, but is now marked to $18.75 (and it is machine washable). Tasha ‘Vibrant Paisley’ Infinity Scarf

Maternity Monday: Mosaic Side Pleat Long Sleeve Dress

Maternity Mosaic Side Pleat Long Sleeve Dress 2Happy Cyber Monday! Stay tuned for a sale roundup later today, but for today’s workwear pick for pregnant moms, I like this simple ruched dress from Loft. It’s machine washable, has a nice high neckline and modest hemline, and looks totally wearable as soon as you have a bump. Lovely. The plain black version is almost entirely sold out, which I always take as a good sign. It’s $84.50 full price, but with code MONDAY it comes down to $42.25 at Loft (available in sizes XS-XXL).  Maternity Mosaic Side Pleat Long Sleeve Dress 2

Everyone Wednesday: Vintage Vida Clutch

Hobo Vintage Vida Clutch | CorporetteMomsWe talk a lot about wristlets at the main site — great for lunch runs, and digging in a huge tote bag — but mamas, I think this idea was made for us. It’s a great way to transfer the few personal items from your diaper bag to your work bag — take it with you if you want to leave the diaper bag unguarded on the playground while you run around with the kiddos — and more. I like the look of this bright HOBO clutch — it was $98, but is now $73.50. Use code HOLIDAY25 to bring it down another 25%, to $55. HOBO Vintage Vida Clutch

(Through 11/28, Amazon is offering an additional 25% off shoes, boots, and handbags — tons of great selections for moms, kids, and, hey, Daddy too.)
