Nursing Tuesday: Allison Drape Nursing Top

Everly Gray Allison Drape Nursing Top | CorporetteMomsAnother spot with a great sale going on: Figure8, which specializes in maternity and beyond — including one of the widest selections of nursing and maternity brands that I know of. This nursing top from Everly Gray looks great — machine washable, functional, loose, and flattering (that ruching will hide a multitude of postpartum body issues). The top was originally $55, but with the 25% off coupon it comes to $41.25 — if you’re buying a lot (4 tops or more) you may be able to get another $25 off. The sale ends July 30. Everly Gray Allison Drape Nursing Top

Other favorites from the sale: this lovely blue blazer, this long cardigan (admittedly, described as a “car coat”), this $50 pencil skirt, and kind of all of the dresses.

Finally Friday: Classic Sheath One-Piece Swimsuit

Esther Williams Classic Sheath One-Piece Swimsuit | CorporetteMomsLast summer, when I had to admit that I really needed to buy a new swimsuit, something completely unexpected happened: I found one I actually like. I read a lot of reviews and checked a bunch of websites, from Zappos to Lands’ End to Athleta, looking for a bathing suit that was flattering and forgiving, covered a bit more than usual, and still looked cute and not frumpy. A tall order, to be sure, but the Amazon reviews for this suit were promising (300+ reviews, 4.4 out of 5 stars), and I was hopeful about the “slimming, shaping tummy panel,” so I bought it (in two sizes to be safe — it does run small).

The verdict: I really like it! It’s comfortable, flattering, cute, and retro without making you look like you’re on your way to a costume party. I have the black/white polka dot print pictured here, but there are many, many fun options, from solid colors to gingham to cherries, anchors, or hibiscus flowers. The suit, which is made in the U.S., is available at Amazon for $25-$82 (with many Prime eligible); here is everything from the brand that’s available there. Over at the “Official Esther Williams Fan Page and Swimsuit Shop,” it’s a bit easier to get an idea of what’s available (and avoid Amazon’s oddly-Photoshopped, unnatural model photos at the same time). There the suit is $77-$79, in sizes 4-16 and 16W-26W. Esther Williams Classic Sheath One-Piece Swimsuit

Everyone Thursday: Vergine Sweater Dress

Club Monaco Vergine Sweater Dress | CorporetteMomsA sweater dress may not be on your list this week, but this casual but chic sweater dress from Club Monaco is part of the great sale going on. Not only is the cashmere blend, hand washable dress marked down from $190 to $70, you can take another 30% off with code THESALEONSALE. I love it as styled with tall boots for a casual, wintry day at the office, but you could dress it up with a long pendant necklace (hello, the tassel necklace would be perfect) and classic pumps.

Washable Wednesday: Ponté Keyhole Sheath Dress

Lands' End Ponté Keyhole Sheath Dress | CorporetteMomsThis dress has been around forever, but it’s marked to $29-$34 now and I just got it for myself, so I thought I’d share. I like the pockets, the fact that it’s machine washable, and the price. It’s available in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes. (While I sometimes buy petites in Lands’ End, I needed a regular size here to get the length I wanted.) Note that today at Lands’ End you can save 30% with code ORDER30 and PIN 3007 (although it’s “not valid when combined with any other promotional offers,” alas). Lands’ End Ponté Keyhole Sheath Dress

Psst: I can’t believe that there are so few sizes and colors left of this old reader favorite sheath dress, also machine washable and with pockets — it must just be a temporary thing before they restock with next season’s colors. BUT: lucky sizes left and a steep discount.

Update: Thanks to a comment from a reader, we’ve learned that you can in fact use the 30%-off promo code on this dress even though it’s already on sale. Nice!

Feeding Tuesday: Tot Sprout Chair

OXO Tot Sprout Chair | CorporetteMomsIf you happen to be in the market for a high chair, we’ve had this OXO chair for years and have loved it for both boys. A five-point harness (yippee), easy to clean (and removable) seat (as well as a very easily cleaned, lightweight tray)… all with a fairly good looking design as far as high chairs go. It’s also adjustable, so you really can have your kiddo in it up to 36 months. We have the green with the matching booster seat, but if I were buying it today I’d be all over this sophisticated taupe/walnut version. OXO Tot Sprout Chair

Psst: We haven’t yet gotten to this section in our registry series, but stay tuned!

Ladies, which high chair do you have? Which is your favorite?
