Washable Wednesday: Two-Way Stretch Ankle Straight Leg Pants

NYDJ Two-Way Stretch Ankle Straight Leg Pants | CorporetteMomsThese ankle pants kind of look great — I like the slits at the ankles, the straight pockets in the back, and the mix of cotton, rayon, and spandex (6%, which I’m assuming is part of NYDJ’s shaping-but-comfortable reputation). They’re also available in stone (and well-reviewed), if that’s your thing. They’re available for regular and petites, sizes 0 to 16, for $110 — instructions say machine wash cold. Score!

Nursing Tuesday: Gathered Loop Top

Milk Nursingwear Gathered Loop Top | CorporetteMomsOoh: I love the look for this simple V-neck gathered top that is nursing friendly — it looks discreet, functional, and flattering. It’s available in coral, latte, and purple for $35 at Amazon, sizes XS-L. Milk Nursingwear Women’s Gathered Loop Top

Maternity Monday: Liv Blouse

Rosie Pope Liv Maternity Blouse | CorporetteMomsOoh: great sale on this lovely pintucked Rosie Pope blouse, available in both black and white. I like how close the buttons are placed together (less chance of a gap), and I think the vertical pintucks look flattering. It’s polyester and spandex, which might raise eyebrows at $148 — but it is “wash cold,” so there’s that. It’s 60% off at ShopBop, though, so the price comes down to $59.20 — and it’s eligible for Prime shipping (ShopBop is owned by Amazon). Nice. Rosie Pope Liv Maternity Blouse

Finally Friday: AGL Flats

AGL ballet flatThese are a reader favorite over at Corporette, and a doctor friend of mine was JUST raving about how insanely comfortable they are.  There are many highly reviewed AGL flats at Nordstrom, but I like these pretty tortoise-toe ones — and they’re 30%. They were $298, but are now $208 — lots of sizes left. Attilio Giusti Leombruni Ballerina Flat
