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.

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

A Night With Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe Rachel Zoe

Last week we celebrated A Pea in the Pod’s new and exclusive collection with Rachel Zoe in Los Angeles at The Chateau Marmont. The hotel is timeless and every bit glamourous, a perfect choice for the intimate gathering in honor of Rachel and her first ever maternity collection.

Upon arriving, Rachel, who donned a one shoulder black caftan, and husband Rodger excitedly shared photos taken earlier in the day of sons Skyler Morrison and Kaius Jagger. Hollywood mammas and mammas-to-be Jaime King, Casey Wilson, Vanessa Lachey, Tiffani Thiessen, Claire Coffee and Elizabeth Berkley joined the fete soon after. We all indulged in mocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres like pesto parmesan tortellini skewers and parmesan cups filled with mozzarella, tomato and basil.

Jaime, Casey, Tiffani and Claire all wore pieces from the Rachel Zoe Collection for A Pea in the Pod, opting for the Printed Caftan Maternity Dress, Exposed Zipper Maternity Mini Dress, Sleeveless Maternity Maxi Dress and Printed Shift Maternity Dress. I love how each made her outfit her own, really demonstrating the versatility of the collection and how flattering the pieces are on different figures. Casey chose a leopard printed open-toe high heel (totally glam!) while Claire added a denim jacket, for a more playful yet chic statement. Jaime, who wore her hair long and flowing, nailed the quintessential Bohemian aesthetic Rachel’s pieces are known for. Plus, she brought the best accessory of the night by far—her mom!

The party ended on a sweet note with to-go boxes from Dana’s Bakery which included birthday cake flavored macarons, a precursor to another party Rachel would be attending later in the week: son Skyler Morrison’s fourth birthday party!

On Location with Molly Sims

MollySims_APeaInThePod_1-608x290MollySims_APeaInThePod-2_608x974A Pea in the Pod is excited to announce Molly Sims as our first ever brand ambassador! Molly, who is expecting her second child, a girl due this Spring, will appear in our Summer 2015 campaign, modeling the latest trends and most-wanted brands arriving in stores and online at A Pea in the Pod beginning this March. A mother, model, actress, and now author, Molly exemplifies the A Pea in the Pod mom-to-be who does it all with exceptional style

The campaign shoot was photographed by famed and talented photographer Justin Coit back in January. A private home in Tarzana on a quintessential LA warm and sunny day was the perfect backdrop to capture the feel of the cool summer collection. Mariel Haenn of styling dream team Rob and Mariel, whose clients also include other stylish mommas Jennifer Lopez and Charlize Theron, infused Mediterranean glamour with LA chic with her chosen accessories (the wide-brimmed hat is perfection!).

After spending only a short time with Molly, it is easy to see why her first book, The Everyday Supermodel, is a best-seller: she is full of amazing tips you can actually put to work on your own. She instantly made me feel like we’d known each other for years—I wish!

Rachel Zoe Maternity Collection

Rachel Zoe for A Pea in the Pod Rachel Zoe for A Pea in the Pod

Now that we’ve officially announced our new line with Rachel Zoe, I am so excited to fill you in on what happened behind-the-scenes at our shoot at Smashbox Studios in LA back in January! I met the always glamorous Rachel (who did not disappoint in a classic black fur vest and 70’s flares!) and chatted with her about her first-ever maternity collection.

Rachel Zoe for A Pea in the PodRachel’s outfit seemed especially fitting when she let us know that the ’70s were her inspiration in designing the maternity collection for A Pea in the Pod. The effortless chic and glamour that categorized the era is sure to resonate with moms-to-be like Rachel who have to do it all with not a lot of time.

My son Greyson is close in age to Rachel’s two children so we had a few stories about our lovable and energetic boys to share. As another working mom in the fashion industry, I am especially inspired by Rachel’s ability to balance her work and love of fashion with motherhood….plus did I mention she’s a blast to hang out with?

JESSICA SIMPSON MATERNITY

Jessica Simpson Maternity Jessica Simpson Maternity Jessica Simpson Maternity Jessica Simpson Maternity

As you know the Jessica Simpson Maternity Collection, available at Motherhood Maternity® and Destination Maternity®, is one of my favorites! I think Jessica’s holiday styles truly evoke her feminine sensibility as a woman and mother. She echoed this sentiment in a quote that I love, “I feel stronger than ever, and Eric’s unconditional love has been a reminder of the love I should give myself.” Loving yourself while you are pregnant is important and looking good is part of that, right?  So here’s a few looks that can get you looking and feeling pretty and feminine for the holidays.

Floaty dresses or femme floral sheaths are great maternity options for a special occasion. Or, get a similar look from a chiffon top, maternity skinny and tweed jacket, all from the Jessica Simpson Maternity Collection. It’s important not to forget the details either. With the right “foundation” like a seamless bra and lace panty, you can start off feeling comfortable and in control. All of the Jessica Simpson bras and panties are designed to offer simple, soft support for expecting and new moms. They also still provide a pretty touch.

Complete your holiday look with some daring accessories that definitely would be Jessica Simpson approved: a dramatic bracelet, cheetah clutch and a sweet heel to give you a little glam while you are expecting.  -Olivia

    It was so fun being here with you all today and everyone following along from @apeainthepodmaternity as well!

And you can always find me @againstallgrain here on IG daily to keep up with my pregnancy, daily eats, family life, and fashion finds! xo💕Danielle #DMtakeover The weather cleared up and dinner is served! We had marinated tri-tip, grilled asparagus, and a salad with grilled nectarines, prosciutto, walnuts and champagne vinaigrette. What did you have for dinner? #glutenfree #againstallgrain @againstallgrain #DMtakeover My little guy doesn't love his veggies, but there's a few I know I can always get him to eat, so I make them often! Roasted asparagus is one of them. I trim the asparagus and toss it with a little olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon and roast it in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. You can also throw it on the grill! #babybump #DMtakeover #againstallgrain @againstallgrain We're visiting family in the mountains and our outdoor plans are being postponed by a thunder and hail storm! So puzzles, coloring, board games, and Lego building are in order. Do any of you other pregnant mommas welcome lazy days like this? I know I do! The weather won't keep us from barbecuing the tri-tip that's been marinating later though!  @againstallgrain #DMtakeover
