- For the pregnant mama: LOFT is offering 50% off EVERYTHING on the site right now, which means this is a great time to stock up. On the maternity side of things, I like these cotton/rayon/spandex chevron herringbone slim bootcut pants – they’re the rare non-black pair of maternity pants. They were $89.50, then marked to $79.99, but with code FIFTY they come down to $40. Maternity Chevron Herringbone Slim Boot Cut Pants
- For the nursing (and pregnant) mom: I suddenly find myself in need of new nursing tops since I’m less than thrilled with all of the ones I had during my first pregnancy — just one or two tops to wear to the doctor’s office, on airplanes, for playdates, etc., since I always seem to end up nursing in public on those occasions. I’m drooling over this nice one from Baju Mama, which also works for maternity — I love that you pull fabric both up and down to nurse, so you’re covered from multiple angles. It’s $54 at Figure8Maternity. Jill Scoop Neck Nursing Top by Baju Mama (Readers, which nursing tops were your favorites?)
- For mamas in the sticky-hands phase: I like the look of this machine-washable blazer from Old Navy. VERY limited sizes are still left in a light pink, too. It’s $39.94 (but comes down to $30 with code ONSAVENOW). Women’s Ponte-Knit Blazers
- For mamas in the diaper-bag phase: I’m intrigued by this Timi & Leslie diaper bag, marked down 33% at Nordstrom — it’s available in five color combinations, features a crossbody, adjustable, detachable strap, and comes with a changing mat, a zippered sack for soiled clothes, and “a stylish clutch that you can use as your own purse.” It also has matching stroller straps, an insulated bottle pocket, and six interior pockets. Wow. It was $165 but is now marked to $110. Timi & Leslie ‘Hannah’ Faux Leather Diaper Bag
- For everyone: I just found these stackable number rings at J.Crew, and I love them — I’d get some with important dates (like my sons’ birthdays or my wedding anniversary). (Note that J.Crew is offering up to 50% off sale styles and 30% off select styles for everyone this weekend with code HISUMMER.) Lulu Frost 14k gold code ring
Readers, what are/were your favorite nursing tops? Did you buy birthstone- or initial jewelry once you became a mama?
