Everyone Thursday: Tassel Necklace

Kendra Scott Rayne Tassel NecklaceThe tassel necklace is everywhere this season, and I particularly like this Kendra Scott version, with a bright, happy stone just above the tassel.  It’s available in seven colors at Nordstrom, where it’s part of the Early Access Anniversary Sale (which opens to the public TOMORROW) — it’s now $52.80, but will go back up to $80 after the sale ends August 3. Kendra Scott Rayne Tassel Necklace

I always enjoy the lookback we do at Corporette on some of our articles from years in the past — so I thought I’d start it here too!

Washable Wednesday: Wrap Dress

Lark Ro Wrap DressToday is “Amazon Prime Day,” where allegedly Prime Members get more deals than Black Friday… yet I must admit it’s a struggle to figure out how best to narrow the choices down and see the best deals. Have you ladies found any great deals today, either as part of the lightning deals or the general “Prime Day” sale? One of the big things to note is that many women’s clothes, accessories, and more are 30% off (discount taken at checkout), including this lovely washable dress from Lark & Ro. The brand is new to me but has a lot of affordable, good looking workwear — and most of the pieces I clicked on were machine washable. I like the print on this wrap dress, the work-appropriate length, and the price: it’s $69 before the discount, but comes down to $50ish after the discount. Lark & Ro Wrap Dress

Psst: I do see that there are a lot of nice maternity and nursing bras in the sale — deep discounts plus an extra 30% off. Nice.


Pumping Tuesday: Tapestry Floral Faux-Wrap Silk Blouse

Haute Hippie Tapestry Floral Faux Wrap Silk Blouse | CorporetteMomsWe’ve pictured the affordable Pleione wrap shirt that everyone loves for pumping a number of times (and it’s now on sale at Nordstrom in both short-sleeved and sleeveless styles — the long-sleeved version is no longer on the site, alas, and has even sold out at Nordstrom Rack), but if you happen to be that rare woman who wants to wear silk while pumping, this is the one for you. I love the color and the print, which would hide a multitude of stains and other sins, and I think it would look lovely with navy or black. It’s $395 at Bergdorf Goodman. Haute Hippie Tapestry Floral Faux-Wrap Silk Blouse


Maternity Monday: Jolene Knot-Front Maternity and Nursing Short Sleeve Dress

Seraphine Jolene Knot-Front Maternity and Nursing Short Sleeve Dress | CorporetteMomsThis Seraphine dress is a classic for maternity, and for good reason — it’s flattering, interesting, and easy for both pregnancy and nursing — and it’s even machine washable. Lovely. It’s $89-96 at Amazon. Seraphine Jolene Knot-Front Maternity and Nursing Short Sleeve Dress
