Maternity Monday: Flutter Sleeve Ruched Lace Trim Top

Motherhood Maternity Flutter Sleeve Ruched Lace Trim TopHappy Green Monday! It’s another big day to save, as the Macy’s website so cheerfully puts it, and they’re having a pretty good web deal for them: take an extra 25% off, plus free shipping at $50 with code FRIEND.  For today’s maternity pick, I’m liking this navy top with lace details — it seems like the perfect thing to wear to holiday or New Year parties whether they’re casual or a bit fancy — and you can probably get a few wears to the office  as well, with a blazer or sweater.  It was $30, but it’s marked down to $20 today — and available in sizes S-XL (also in pink, oat stripe and navy stripe). Motherhood Maternity Flutter Sleeve Ruched Lace Trim Top

(Also cute: this and this.)

Finally Friday: Signature Diaper Bag

C.Wonder Signature Diaper Bag | CorporetteMomsOoh: this C. Wonder diaper bag looks kind of perfect. I like the large patch pockets on the outside, a side compartment for the changing mat, and a detachable zip pouch and spring-lock key ring… all nice. I’m also a fan of the muted, almost somber black — our main one is black also, which I secretly think makes it easier for my husband to carry it. (He never seems to want to carry the other smaller/crazier diaper bags.) This one is $102.40 (was $128) at ShopBop; you can find the same in navy at C.Wonder. C. Wonder Signature Diaper Bag

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
