Trending Baby Names

Trending Baby Names

 

What is every little girl’s favorite movie? If you don’t know, here’s a hint… LET IT GO! Frozen’s Elsa and Anna are trending as baby names in 2015, as well as other Disney character favorites including Tiana, Giselle, Anastacia and Aurora.  The movie, The Fault in Our Stars, has earned both Gus and Hazel popular baby name status. Arya—calling all Game of Thrones fans– as well as its other spelling Aria, from Pretty Little Liars, and Piper, from Orange is the New Black, are TV-inspired baby names. Other pop Culture influenced names give a nod to literature, like Harper; Harper Lee is the author of To Kill a Mockingbird.

Our favorite royals William and Kate have given us a new love of the name George, while their own monikers continue to be popular choices. No doubt if they have a girl and decide to pay homage to Diana, we will be seeing that name rise in popularity. In fact, the United Kingdom is proving to be quite a source for baby names in the US, with “Fiona, Flora, Fenella, Greer, Isla and Elspeth, and for the boys, Finlay, Angus, Duncan, Ewan and Lachlan” making their way across the ocean according to The Huffington Post.

Your favorite color might just make the perfect baby name as well! In addition to Hazel, Scarlet, Lavender, Indigo, Magenta, Lilac– the list goes on—could be the just the way to make a bold statement with your name choice. Names with an X at the end or in the middle are becoming popular like Lennox or Axel as well.  To round out our list of names, Titan, of Greek Mythology is strong, memorable and makes a Big Statement!

Congratulations and good luck! –Olivia

Style File // Leather + Leops Dishes On Designer Maternity Denim

StyleFile-Leather_Leops_1-608x275StyleFile-Leather_Leops_2-608x1039

Staci Acquasanta of LEATHER+LEOPS is a stylist, fashion blogger and soon-to- be mom! She has an amazing sense of style, so it’s no surprise she’s looking fabulous through pregnancy. During a recent chat Staci dished, “Just because I was pregnant did not mean I was going to start dressing any differently. I was so excited to see that everything I would typically wear was offered in maternity versions at Destination Maternity. While I did love my maternity leggings, I would try to dress it up with a long sleeved tee and a fur vest.  I always say that it’s important to dress for your body and being pregnant, I tried to do just that.”

Some of Staci’s favorite maternity essentials are easy layering tanks, Mama Mio Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter and a great body pillow. She’s also been living in A Pea in the Pod’s Splendid Maternity Leggings and David Lerner Leggings and counts herself a fan of our designer jeans featuring the Secret Fit Belly®.  “I loved that I was able to go to Destination Maternity and find my favorite designer jean brands in maternity versions” said Staci. “The Secret Fit Belly is so comfortable and has allowed me to easily grow into my pants, as I’ve worn them from month 3 to now (almost 8) without any problem. Besides the belly material, the jeans feel just like a normal pair of jeans and have the same exact look. I also loved that I was able to get more than plain denim.  I invested in a pair of black coated and maroon coated pants to change up my look from everyday denim. My favorites by far have been AG, DL1961, A Pea in the Pod’s boyfriend jeans and 7 For All Mankind.”

We love that Staci’s style hasn’t wavered! She’s proven that you can stay true to your own style even with a bump! -Olivia

My son Greyson has some killer style! Ok, so he’s only a toddler and not actually choosing his own clothes yet but his momma is having way too much fun doing it for him! Seeing how other mommas dress their babes and even coordinate with their minis can be so fun and inspiring. Some of the brands I rely on for Grey are Tea Collection, MINI X STYLE & Little Boogaweezin. And he loves the sneaker trend as much as his dad!

We’d love to see your photos! Just use #MHministyle @MotherhoodMaternity and #APIPministyle @PeaMaternity on Instagram to be featured on our feeds! –Olivia

Kate Middleton Can-Do-No-Wrong Maternity Style

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kate Middleton can do no wrong when it comes to many things, and her maternity style is one of them! She is nearing the end of her pregnancy, looking as amazing as always. Take a peek at my picks of her best dressed. From soft palettes to those pretty petticoat jackets…she’s nailed chic and feminine maternity dressing. We are so happy and lucky to have collections from across the pond like Isabella Oliver, of course Seraphine (which Kate has been seen wearing!) and soon to be introducing our collaboration with Madderson London! I will keep you updated on that! -Olivia

Bringing Baby Home

Closing in on your due date? Packing your hospital bag? Well, finding a cute coming home outfit for baby is a last trimester must!  I think you’ll love these unisex pieces from Elegant Baby, so you can bring home your newborn in style. -Olivia

Get The Look // Tiffani Thiessen

Get The Look: Tiffani Thiessen

From her adorable baby announcement, to her chic and effortless dress choices, actress Tiffany Theissen is totally nailing her second pregnancy! Expecting a little boy later this year, Tiffani has been spotted out in LA promoting her new Cooking Channel show, Dinner at Tiffani’s, wearing A Pea in the Pod.  Seen in our Splendid Maternity and Tart Collection dresses at different events, we think you’ll love her maternity style too! –Olivia

Chic This Week: Suited For Spring

Isabella Oliver Suiting Seperates

Modern suiting gets a make-over for spring with our Isabella Oliver Maternity collection, tailored just for moms-to-be. Opt for a blazer and slim pencil skirt paired with a feminine shirt and you have an office-appropriate look that is perfect for your bump. I love a classic pump or even a more seasonal option, like a sandal, which will elongate your look. Don’t forget flip-flops for the commute! –Olivia

DID YOU KNOW?… The Bump’s Out of the Bag

Grace-Kelly-Hermes

DID YOU KNOW: The classic Kelly Bag from Hermès was actually an attempt to hide Princess Grace Kelly’s (then) private baby bump? She used the bag as a designer disguise, which was photographed, featured on the cover of Life Magazine and of course in demand by everyone! This pregnant princess of Monaco sure knew how to make a pregnancy announcement! -Olivia

GET THE LOOK // JESSICA BIEL

Jessica Biel Maternity Style

It’s only been a month since Justin Timberlake announced he and wife Jessica Biel were expecting their first child together. While the couple may have been keeping the pregnancy under wraps, we assume it wasn’t because she didn’t know what to wear! Much like her pre-pregnancy style, Jessica’s maternity picks have not disappointed and we were especially excited to see her wearing A Pea in the Pod!

While on set last week in New Orleans, she wore our Splendid maternity jogger pants, and a few weeks earlier, she was spotted in LA in our Secret Fit Belly® AG Maternity Jeans, both available exclusively at A Pea in the Pod. I love how she paired the jeans with a clean blazer and kitten heels- a perfectly chic and go-to look for any mom-to-be. Between making movies, opening her first restaurant and a new baby, this momma-to-be has quite a lot to look forward to and we know she’ll do it all in flawless fashion!
