Maternity Monday: ‘Acadia’ Mock Neck Dress

Washable Short-Sleeve Maternity Dress: Seraphine 'Acadia' Mock Neck Maternity DressHappy Monday, ladies! So many maternity dresses seem to be low-cut scoopnecks, and it can be really difficult to find something with a higher profile. This mock neck looks great — almost ’60s inspired — and I particularly like that it feels youthful without feeling girlish. It’s $89 at Nordstrom, available in sizes 2-14. Seraphine ‘Acadia’ Mock Neck Maternity Dress

Here’s a plus-size option.

Finally Friday: ‘Circle’ Cardigan

Long Open-Front Cardigan: Barefoot Dreams 'Circle' CardiganI picked up this cozy cardigan during the NAS, and while it sold out quickly then, it’s so good I’m considering going back for more at full price. It’s super soft, machine washable, and less bathrobe-like than it’s shown online. Sure, you COULD wear it with leggings or jammies, but you could also wear it with jeans or another casual outfit to work. It’s $116 full price, available in six colors, sizes XS-XL — and there’s a plus-size version too. (Oh, and it has 216 almost-5-star reviews.) Barefoot Dreams ‘Circle’ Cardigan

Mommying Your Husband

Mommying Your HusbandLadies: do you struggle with mommying your husband or partner? Do you fight against it? Does he? Has it added to the stress of keeping the romance alive — or is it just one more task on your to-do list? The “helpless man” stereotype has spawned a whole genre of TV ads like this one — but do you have some real-life examples to share? I’ve had a few wine-fueled conversations with girlfriends about this and have seen a few commenter threads over at Corporette (like here and here), as well as a few news stories that made me think about this, so I thought we’d discuss here.
