Finally Thursday: Dania Heels

Naturalizer DaniaThese highly rated heels look great for summer fun — they feel on trend but without a sacrifice for comfort. Plus, they’re only $89 — love it.  Zappos has them in black and brown, in three widths in sizes 5-12. Naturalizer Dania

(Obviously, know your office — this peep toe look isn’t appropriate for every office!)


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


Teething Tuesday: Teething Necklace

Siliconies Medley Necklace - Silicone Bead NecklaceI bought one of these teething necklaces for Harry, and I thought it was a good purchase — it was easy to grab when I was going out to wear him or to something where I knew I’d be carrying him a lot, and he liked playing with the necklace and chewing on it. I also bought a longer one for when we were actually nursing so he could play with it instead of getting distracted by his brother.  The pictured one is $14.95, and available in purple, turquoise, black, or gray.

Maternity Monday: Cross Front Maternity Nursing Top

Japanese Weekend Maternity Cross Front Nursing Top | CorporetteMomsThis cross-front maternity nursing top is a classic — I think it’s been around in all sorts of colors and prints since my first pregnancy at least. It’s available in a tank top version, as well; both tops are $58-$68 at Nordstrom. Japanese Weekend Maternity Cross Front Nursing Top

Weekend Open Thread

Lands' End Tunic One Piece Slender Suit | CorporetteMomsI’ve been a devotee of Lands’ End swim suits for a while now — they come up to size DDD, in regular, tall, petite, and plus sizes; they’re made well, they don’t show too much, they’re slimming without being uncomfortable… and you can often find them on sick sales in the “On the Counter” section or with discounts. This deal is pretty solid considering it’s the height of swimsuit season: the suit was $119 and is now $49. Lands’ End Tunic One Piece Slender Suit
