Nursing Tuesday: Asymmetrical Tiered Nursing Top

Milk Nursingwear Asymmetrical Tiered Nursing Top | CorporetteMomsThis nursing top from Milk looks lovely — I like the high neckline, the bright, happy colors, and the functionality of the shirt. It’s $44 at Amazon. Milk Nursingwear Asymmetrical Tiered Nursing Top


Maternity Monday: Olian Maternity Dress

Olian Maternity DressIt always seems like Olian has about a zillion iterations of this dress — right now, Nordstrom has four.  Which is good, since each dress only has one size left.  (XS, S, M, L.) Funny, funny.  This tank top version is perfect for summer (and is available in L); the longer-sleeved versions are marked down to $68-$84.  I’d wear the sleeveless one with a cardigan or blazer for work; it’s $128.  Olian Maternity Dress

Washable Wednesday: Veronica Print Side Tie Sheath Dress

NYDJ 'Veronica' Print Side Tie Sheath DressOoh: I love this hand-washable sheath dress, on deep discount at Nordstrom.  Love the flattering side tie, the jewel neck and sleeves, and the interesting print.  It was $148, but is now marked to $88, still available in most sizes 2-10.  NYDJ ‘Veronica’ Print Side Tie Sheath Dress
