Our new A Pea in the Pod store in Aventura Mall is now open and I spent a few days in Miami to mark the occasion. My first stop was a visit to 6 In the Mix for a fashion segment on holiday maternity looks. Anchor Roxanne Vargas, who is currently expecting her second child, and three local Miami mamas-to-be modeled some of the key trends for the season: the maternity maxi dress, tuxedo detailing, winter florals and sequins. Check out the segment below.
At our store opening celebration, moms-to-be shopped all these great looks and more, including AG Jeans, 7 For All Mankind, Splendid, BCBG, and Rachel Pally while enjoying mini cupcakes from Bunnie Cakes!If you are in the Philadelphia area, I hope you’ll join me for our next styling event at the Destination Maternity at Liberty Place. –Olivia

One of our favorite moms and Scandal actress Kerry Washington is being honored at The Baby2Baby Gala this Saturday! The L.A. based non-profit is presenting her with the Giving Tree Award for her exemplary commitment to bettering the livelihood of children and families in need.
In honor of Kerry, we are throwing it back to when she was pregnant with now 18 month old Isabelle and wore an A Pea in the Pod chic side tie denim dress to her baby shower.
Congrats to this amazing mama! –Olivia

Every day my two year old is learning something and it’s so much fun to be along for these new discoveries and milestones! In addition to potty training, we are in the process of teaching Grey good manners. So far, our toddling pupil has mastered introducing himself, and saying “hello,” “goodbye,” “please” and “thank you!” However, we’re struggling with table etiquette during mealtime.Things usually start out well but ten minutes into the meal Grey’s small attention-span and appetite make him restless. We tried to appease him by giving him his choice of fruits and veggies to keep him at the table longer… and give mom and dad a few more minutes to eat. As of late, however, food, along with full cups of juice, ends up thrown all over the floor!
When this happens, we pause and remind him food is for eating and not to be thrown on the floor. We also make it a point to compliment him when he uses his spoon properly or cleans himself up with a napkin. Changing up his late afternoon snacks to include lighter options and moving him to a booster seat instead of the highchair have also helped.
Do you have any tips for dealing with your toddler’s meltdowns during mealtime? –Olivia

My trip to Chicago last week for a style session was quick but fun! My first stop was a visit to Bright Pink, the Chicago-based charity which focuses on educating young women on early detection for Breast and Ovarian Cancers. It was awesome getting to tour the team’s all pink office space!
My co-host Bright Pink CEO Lindsay Avner and I later spent the afternoon shopping with clients at the A Pea in the Pod at Water Tower Place and chatting with them about all things children, health, and great Chicago food! Moms-to-be were looking for everything from Secret Fit Belly denim to office-appropriate dresses. However, sweaters were the most requested since it was a brisk 46 degrees that morning! A Vince frayed edge cardigan, sweater vest and Joie’s wool blend turtleneck were just a few of the pieces snapped up by mamas who shopped to support Bright Pink.
I hope to get back to Chicago soon, but if you are expecting this winter and live in the area, visit the amazing team at Water Tower Place for all of your cold weather mom-to-be essentials! Let me know where I should visit next. –Olivia
