The singer and wife to the New York Jets Wide Receiver Eric Decker was spotted in our AG Jeans looking totally glam while enjoying a sweet treat last week in Los Angeles. Already a mama of one to daughter Vivianne Rose, she is expecting her second baby, a boy, this September. I’m loving that she styled up a destructed denim and button up with a sleek heel and a fabulous blowout! She’s killin’ the boy-meets-girl look as a 2nd time preggonista. Kudo’s Jessie! -Olivia

Honest Founder Christopher Gavigan on Fatherhood + What He Wants Most for Father’s Day

Guest Editor, Christopher Gavigan, Founder and Chief Product Officer of The Honest Company

In honor of Father’s Day, we are kicking the holiday weekend off with a special guest post from Christopher Gavigan, father of three and one of the founders of The Honest Company! Christopher is also the Company’s Chief Product Officer and he and Honest have had quite the busy week; the Company announced a forthcoming beauty line and Christopher and cofounder Jessica Alba ventured to DC to lobby for toxic chemical reform. I am so glad he found a few moments to do some Q and A! Keep reading for an inside look at Christopher’s most important role as dad and to hear how he and wife Jessica Capshaw (that’s Dr. Arizona Robbins for all of you Grey’s Anatomy fans!), will be spending the weekend!Christopher FamilyWhat do you enjoy most about being a dad? Being a parent is one of life’s eternal purposes – being connected to someone is enormously humbling to think about, but in its daily intricacies, it’s so enjoyable and incredibly fun (most of the time!) I love being a part of intentional participation in my kids’ lives with my wife. Together, we join alongside them and try to do our best to lead by example. Kids need quality, not quantity, so we are all in when we are with them; that grounds me to slow down, be present and give myself. Anyone will agree that undoubtedly feels so, so good.

How will you be celebrating? I’ll be on the East End of Long Island, New York with my kids and wife. We will “play it by ear” (as my father used to say) and wake with the kids. Then, I’ll make my famous Daddy Pancakes with them, which is whole wheat batter filled with plant-based proteins and fresh fruit topped with VT maple syrup. We’ll let the day unfold after that. Maybe some beach playing and swimming in the Atlantic, or scoot to a yoga or SoulCycle class with my wife, and then a calm evening of lawn games and an outdoor picnic, which hopefully includes lobster. I’m no doubt abundantly blessed!

Okay, so how about work- what’s that like? My days at Honest are filled with (intentionally and literally) running through the office; we are a mission-based business with so much more to accomplish. I truly love leading a culture of innovation and change-makers focused on creating healthier, non-toxic products for today’s family. It’s a revolution of awareness, transparency and integrity. My Honest days are filled with joining our team in developing better products, executing with excellence, putting out fires (we are the Honest Company not the “perfect company”) and lifting up our employee base with gratitude, collaboration and passion. I have the best job in the world!

What are your favorite products? You know that’s like asking me which child I love the most… impossible for me to answer as the Product Ambassador at Honest. I use all our products all the time, and continually have new development samples and optimized formulas (in small white bottles with labels) all over my house. My wife Jessica despises them. I slather my kids’ spray surfaces in the home – quick optimization and refinement (insights primarily harvested from our own Honest members) is how we’ve humbly been able to deliver delight and build our loyal base. Overall, I’m a fanatic about our Healing Balm, Vetiver Deodorant, Multi-Surface Spray, Laundry Detergent and Air + Fabric Fresheners.

Any Father’s Day gift you want or are excited for? It’s unattainable, but because you said any I would have to choose to bottle certain moments of my life. The more you know, the less you really need. I have a full and fortunate life, and I’d like to relive those special moments of times spent with my family and kids. The problem is… I’d need a very big place to store all those bottles!

You can shop The Honest Company’s products, which are perfect for new and expecting moms and their families in our stores and online! Some of my favorites are the sanitizing spraylip balm trio and body oil! -Olivia

2015 Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash was a Smash!

Earlier this month I attended New York City’s largest annual family charity event: Baby Buggy’s Bedtime Bash. It was a perfectly cool and sunny spring afternoon for the carnival-themed gathering, which raised a record $535,000 to benefit families in need across the country!

I was honored to serve on the host committee alongside Jessica Seinfeld, who founded the charity in 2001. New York Times Bestselling author, co-host of ABC’s hit lifestyle series “The Chew” and Mom-to-be Daphne Oz,  as well as Rachel Blumenthal, Founder and CEO of one of my favorite sites, Cricket’s Circle, were also on the host committee and both wore denim from A Pea in the Pod!

As a brand focused on dressing moms-to- be, we brainstormed over what activities to host in our booth that would be fun for the whole family, and I am proud to say ours were a hit with parents and children alike! Attendees were able to get a hand-drawn fashion sketch of themselves done by an illustrator to take home, as well as make their own sketches, taking a turn as a designer. Guests were also treated to mini-manicures, courtesy of one of our newest safe-for-mom-to-be skincare brands, Nine Naturals. Check out a few of my favorite photos from the day below!

If you want to support Baby Buggy and its national network of families, you can purchase one of our super soft and super cute Jessica Simpson Maternity Soul Mate tees.

The Many [Maternity] Layers of Kim Kardashian

All eyes have been on Kim Kardashian since she announced last week that she is expecting baby #2. Kim layers her looks to perfection, especially during her pregnancies! It’s clear as a mom-to-be, she understands that adding a crisp blazer, jacket or sweater can create the right proportion over a dress or pant, which really does flatter your shape.

51052057 Reality stars Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian stop by their mom's office in Los Angeles, California on March 29, 2013. FameFlynet, Inc - Beverly Hills, CA, USA - +1 (818) 307-4813This look from Kim’s first pregnancy, where she pairs an easy tee, flats and our Secret Fit Belly® leggings with a structured blazer, is the perfect example of a polished, yet comfortable, outfit for a mom-to-be. The blazer balances out the soft knit pieces since it hits just below her bump; when worn open, it really elongates her figure. All of these pieces are mom-to-be essentials and when worn together, create a chic desk-to-dinner look! Photo Credit: FameFlyNet

Kim knows what works best for her bump and I am excited to see even more classic looks, as well as some fashion risks, this time around! –Olivia

Get The Look // Hilaria Baldwin’s Chic Stroller Style!

WireImage-471442286

Hilaria Baldwin is spotted again wearing A Pea in the Pod in New York City on what is a fashionable and fun day of errands! On the go with adorable daughter Carmen and baby number two due later this year, I love that she keeps her mom-to-be look casual yet chic. She’s sporting one of my favorite staples of the season, the soft pant! This version from Splendid, is trendy and in a soft chambray fabric, extremely comfortable! She’s paired it with a simple side ruched tee and cardigan, which I love for cooler weather. You can also opt for a breezy tank and wedges for a summer look that is more comfortable when the temperature gets warmer. Style and mom points both go to Hilaria for adding an edgy take on this trend with fabulous oversized frames and earrings, all while toting her tot, shopping bags and sippy cup! -Olivia

Support Baby Buggy + Families in Need

JessicaSimpsonMaternity_Soul_Mates_TeeWe’ve teamed up with Jessica Simpson and Baby Buggy® to launch an exclusive teeshirt for the Jessica Simpson Maternity collection at our Destination Maternity® stores. In celebration of Mothers Day, five dollars of every tee shirt sold, up to $50,000,  will be donated directly to the nonprofit organization Baby Buggy, which provides families in need with essential gear, clothing, and educational services for infants and children up to age 14 across the country.

“Being a mom is the most meaningful life experience I have ever had.  I share a common need with all mothers – to make life as happy and comfortable as possible for my kids,” says Jessica Simpson.  “Baby Buggy is an incredible organization that helps so many mothers fulfill that need.  I am honored to have created this adorable tee to help support Baby Buggy and all of the moms out there who are working hard to be the best they can be for their kids.”

“We are extremely thankful for the continued support of Jessica Simpson and are excited to embark on a new partnership with Destination Maternity to raise even more awareness about our work,” says Baby Buggy Founder Jessica Seinfeld. “The funds raised will greatly help our organization’s efforts to support parents across the country as they work to raise their families in a safe and healthy environment.”

The super soft, heather grey tee shirt is adorable and is currently available online and in our Destination Maternity and Motherhood Maternity stores. If you purchase the tee we encourage you to help raise even more awareness for Baby Buggy and its network of moms and their families nationwide by sharing across social media using the hashtag #JSxBabyBuggy. -Olivia

Rachel Zoe’s Spring Picks

Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_1-608x742The exclusive Rachel Zoe Collection for A Pea in the Pod has finally arrived online and in stores! Following a fabulous launch party in West Hollywood and store events across the US celebrating the new collaboration, we sat down with Rachel to talk about the Spring line.

Rachel’s trademark bohemian style is woven throughout the collection, which balances timeless silhouettes with tailored classics. Excluding a polished glamour while remaining effortless and functional, the Spring collection includes carefree caftans and tunics and flowing dresses juxtaposed with structured jackets.Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_2-608x884Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_3-608x1216

Rachel admits, “I lived in draped maxi dresses and structured jackets during my pregnancy. Whether you’re in your first or third trimester, these are two silhouettes you can mix and match into your wardrobe throughout your pregnancy.  Give your maxi a little daytime glamour and layer on the jewelry, add a pair of sunnies and opt for metallic sandals. When it comes to your favorite LBD, add an edge with a cool black biker jacket”.

Rachel’s iconic style truly comes through in this collection. Filled with must-have items and statement makers, we think you’ll love the line! -Olivia

A Celebration of Style

Rachel_Zoe_Event_Recap_1-608x571 Rachel_Zoe_Event_Recap_2-608x529

 

Last weekend, we celebrated our exclusive collection with style maven Rachel Zoe by throwing shopping celebrations in select A Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity stores throughout the country. While shopping, guests enjoyed macarons from Dana’s Bakery personalized with our hashtag #RachelZoexAPIP in flavors like chocolate molten and jelly doughnut- YUM! Décor included all white floral arrangements with peeled back roses and hydrangeas (Rachel’s favorites).

I had the pleasure of hosting two of the events in sunny Aventura and Coral Gables, Florida.   It was so much fun to meet with clients and introduce them to the collection!  I was able to advise on the best ways to style the bump while helping the expecting moms-to-be shop for their maternity essentials and wardrobe.

 

Rachel_Zoe_Event_RecapBottom_608x1100

Los Angeles-based blogger Leanne Barlow hosted the event in Beverly Hills and looked GORGEOUS in the Rachel Zoe Printed Caftan Maternity Dress.

Bloggers Nicole Gonzalez of Lillies and Leon, who also donned the caftan, and Staci Acquasanta of Leather and Leops, who rocked the Rachel Zoe Exposed Zipper Maternity Mini Dress, hosted the event in New York.  Plus, DreamDry,the premier blowdry and styling salon co-founded by Rachel, held a braid bar to add even more boho-chic flair.

Don’t fret if you missed our events!  The collection is available online and in stores.

Hope to see you at our future shopping events!  Xoxo- Olivia
