Washable Workwear Wednesday: Scuba Sheath Dress

Ooh: this washable sheath dress reminds me of the much (much) more expensive Ted Baker twofer dresses that have been so popular — but I kind of like this one better because it’s washable, sleeveless, and the dark colors of the patterned skirt and solid top are perfect for working moms who may want to hide a multitude of stains. This dress was $128, but comes down to $78 in the Nordstrom Winter Sale — nice! Scuba Sheath Dress

Maternity Tuesday: Dolman-Sleeve Bodycon Dress

This Old Navy dress, which is available only online, looks great. Note that the blue and red are almost all sold out (and the green is gone), but there are still a lot of sizes left in the black and “longstocking red” (which looks orange on my screen, at least). They’re all on sale right now, from $12.97 to $19.97, and even better, another 30% will be taken off when you add one to your cart (today only), meaning you could potentially get a maternity dress for $9. It’s made from a soft, slightly-stretchy jersey, and the reviews say it’s comfortable and flattering. Maternity Dolman-Sleeve Bodycon Dress

Family Friday: Bamboo Baby Washcloths

In terms of the fancier options out there for washcloths — like muslin, bamboo, and flannel — I prefer muslin for my own face, but I feel bad that I didn’t have these bamboo baby washcloths when my sons were still in diapers. When your kid has a rash and you’re trying to be as gentle as possible, and only using water, this would be perfect — and far superior to the sad, rough washcloths we used back then. These bamboo washcloths are very soft and are $12.95 for a pack of six. If you have sensitive, angry skin, I’d look into these for your face, too. Bamboo Baby Washcloths
