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?

2015 Oscars Best Dressed

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Did you tune in to the Oscars last night? While I am sorry to see award season come to a close, the fashion choices ended it on a “haute” note. Mom-to-be Keira Knightley opted for a baby-doll Valentino gown, her go-to silhouette this season, while Sophie Hunter, who is also expecting, chose Lanvin. It only took one shade, red, for  Dakota Johnson to stop the show in Saint Laurent and THAT ponytail! Lupita Nyong’o, who I am convinced can do no wrong, chose a white beaded Calvin Klein dress. Zoe Saldana, new mom to twins, looked amazing in blush, while Jennifer Lopez glowed in a flesh-toned Elie Saab gown.  My personal favorite of the night was Margot Robbie who stunned in a black Saint Laurent gown, a perfectly coiffed blonde lob and pouty red lip, a refreshing take on old Hollywood glam. -Olivia

Hollywood Maternity Style

In years past the ultimate red carpet, The Oscars Red Carpet, has been graced with some fabulous expecting stars.  I can’t wait to watch The Oscars this Sunday for the nominations, the dresses and of course to bump watch. Benedict Cumberbatch’s wife, Sophie Hunter, is expecting, as well as Jessica Biel and Kiera Knightley! In honor of The Oscars, here’s a look back at some of my favorite red carpet styles of the past – Olivia

ROYAL BABYMOON

Royal BabymoonRoyalBabymoon-2_608x526RoyalBabymoon-3_608x808RoyalBabymoon-4_608x795

Our favorite royal just came back from her babymoon, probably looking totally glam in nautical blues and whites. From across the pond to a tropical island, Kate Middleton always looks amazing.  Are you planning on taking that last trip before the baby comes too? Take a look back at our blog post What2Wear/Where The Babymoon edition for inspiration on what to pack!

Luckily, you do not need to be a resident of a kingdom to achieve The Duchess’ fashion-forward and sophisticated style. A Pea in the Pod sells the luxury line, Seraphine Maternity, Kate’s go-to maternity brand!  With inspiration from the most classic and classiest European cities, Seraphine helps makes moms-to-be feel and look their best, whether on a babymoon or at work! Stay tuned for more posts about this regal brand with celebrity and royalty following!

Whether away or here to stay … happy shopping! –Olivia

GET THE LOOK: KEIRA KNIGHTLEY

GET_THE_LOOK-KeiraKnightly_1-608x272 GET_THE_LOOK-KeiraKnightly_2-608x945 GET_THE_LOOK-KeiraKnightly_3-608x1055

Who doesn’t love Keira Knightley and her always evolutionary style? From ultra-feminine to awesomely androgynous… her wardrobe is always chic.  She recently announced her pregnancy, so I took a look back at some of my favorite fashions that she’s worn this past year, including her most recent red carpet choice at the 2015 Golden Globes.

I am predicting we’ll see her continue a lady-like look with tons of waistline interest and A-Line silhouettes. Both are especially flattering with a bump! Cinching with a tie or belt at the empire line above your bump can really slim at the smallest part on your torso. A-Line and flared shapes on skirts and babydoll dresses are also perfect silhouettes to balance out a growing bump.

Keira sticks to classic neutral colors like black, white and nudes; then she adds in shots of soft colors. She chooses cuts that work for her with interesting details like ruffles, lace and embroidery to highlight her neck or hemline. Her style secret seems to be choosing classic, yet modern looks, which I love because it works so well for her. I think we’ll see her continue to wear lots of flare and A-Line shapes, belted dresses and soft details as she goes further along in her pregnancy. Take a cue from Keira and try femme-fashion while you’re expecting. – Olivia

GOLDEN GLOBES 2015 STYLE

Old Hollywood glamour, metallic and white all night! Those were some of my favorite trends from the red carpet at the 2015 Golden Globes. It’s always fun predicting what will be trending for the night and as always there are some hits and misses! All eyes were on every celebrity mom and mom-to-be!

Rosamund Pike, from Gone Girl fame, scored in a stunning white gown just 5 weeks after welcoming her baby girl. Keira Knightly took a fashion risk in a feminine custom Chanel [maternity] gown that apparently took 30 people to make! Whether you swooned over the dress or not, I have to say I admire her for staying true to her ultra-femme gamine appeal in the ruffled piece.

Chrissy Teigan, while not a mama (yet), was another of my faves in Zuhair Murad. She chose a beautiful soft pink, while so many others went even lighter in white or silver metallic, making it a trend that’s here to stay for spring. Julianne Moore went totally glam in an ombre-sequin Givenchy Couture gown. Plus, did you see Naomi Watts in that yellow Gucci gown with that divine necklace? PERFECTION.

CELEBRITY MATERNITY STYLE OF 2014

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

2014 was an exciting year for expecting celebrities! Baby bumps in Hollywood were everywhere (fabulously dressed ones, may I just add!) From glamorous designer maternity gowns to cool and casual pregnancy fashion, I’m giving you a round-up of my favorite celebrity looks, including pieces from Destination Maternity!

I am in love with this monochromatic look that Vanessa Lachey wore on the December cover of Fit Pregnancy Magazine, featured in our Joes Jeans. Vanessa also rocked AG Jeans for A Pea in the Pod, creating a timeless look with a simple sweater and booties. She proved that denim is a maternity must-have! (CREDIT: Fit Pregnancy)

All eyes have been on The Duchess of Cambridge, (Kate Middleton), and her royal pregnancy style since she announced she is expecting her second child earlier this year. My favorite look of hers has been the Seraphine coat she wore during her visit to NYC. Kate’s ladylike style with minimalist accessories is always on point. (CREDIT: ok.co.uk.com)

Blake Lively’s maternity style has been the one to watch! She makes pregnancy look glamorous even in a cape and jeans. Love it! The soft yellow Gucci gown Blake wore to a charity event this fall was fabulous too! She is such a natural beauty and mama-to-be. (CREDIT: dailymail.co.uk.com & eonline)

Kourtney Kardashian’s bi-coastal style never disappoints. She makes a casual dress, plus the right accessories look polished by pairing her look with a cool-girl trench coat. (CREDIT: dailymail.co.uk)

Alicia Keys is part rocker-chic, part glam-mom. Seen out and about in AG camo-skinnies, a white shirt and a ridiculously cool hat, she stays true to her style even throughout pregnancy.

Kerry Washington creates perfect pregnancy looks. She was radiant in a custom Balenciaga gown at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards this year. The beautiful petals flattered her bump and the ivory color was a great choice for her glowing complexion. Kerry followed up the Golden Globes with a Jason Wu lilac gown for the 2014 Oscars.  Another beautiful color for her and with the soft draping, it gave her an ethereal look that was maternity gold. (CREDIT: mtv.com & dailymail.co.uk.com)

Kelly Rowland showed off her baby bump at the 2014 VMAs in a soft pink sequined gown. The feminine color, romantic up-do and dramatic jewels put her in the best dressed list for the year. Kelly also had some fun weekend looks during her pregnancy with Titan. The maternity boyfriend jeans from A Pea in the Pod, tank top and bandana showed off her fashionably fun R&B side. (CREDIT: justjared.com)

I loved watching Stacy Keibler style her beautiful bump in pieces from our A Pea in the Pod Collection. Here she chose a fabulous tangerine Rachel Pally maternity dress and Isabella Oliver maternity jacket, proving you can wear color when you are pregnant!

Ciara was stunning at the 2014 Grammy Awards in Emilio Pucci. The metallic gold gown hugged her bump, was an amazing shade for her, and her easy LOB hairstyle was perfection. (CREDIT: popsugar.com)

Hayden Panettiere really surprised me with her choice for the 2014 Emmy Awards, but in a really good way! The petite star chose a glamorous sequined dress with a plunging neckline from Lorena Sarbu. The daring silhouette and shimmer totally worked for her, accentuating her bump… this was a total win in my book! (CREDIT: glamour.com)

The Valentino gown Olivia Wilde wore to the 2014 Oscar Awards was one of my favorites of the year. I love an elegant black gown. The white peekaboo back was a chic surprise too! (CREDIT: eonline)

These are my picks for the best dressed mamas of the year. Who’s yours? Let us know!- Olivia

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
