STYLEFILE: INITIALS LA

I’ve been following blogger Laura from Initials-LA for a while now. She is a total fashion darling who looked amazing in one of her posts a few weeks back wearing pieces from our Wendy Bellissimo Collection for Destination Maternity. She has perfected a chic yet relaxed look and works the Wendy Bellissimo pieces into her wardrobe seamlessly. I just love, love, love how it all comes together- hope you do too! -Olivia

WHAT TO WEAR/WHERE: LABOR DAY

Summer is winding down and I’m getting ready for the long Labor Day weekend ahead. I’ll probably head to the beach or pool with my boys during the day and maybe even make my way into the city too. Playing holiday weekends by ear seems to suit my family best, so I always have versatile outfits in mind when I start thinking about what to wear. Layering pieces, a great skinny and the right accessories are the key for the perfect Labor Day weekend look. -Olivia

CHIC THIS WEEK: DOUBLE DENIM

chicthisweek826

I seriously can’t get enough of denim this season! So of course one of my favorite looks is wearing a denim shirt with jeans. Getting the denim on denim look right is key. It’s as simple as making sure the washes are either very different OR only a slight shade off. Voila….double denim done right! xoxo- Olivia

I am in love with our new Fall Collection for A Pea in the Pod! Chic essentials like the denim shirt, parka and biker jacket are great perennial pieces. Plus, fabulous stand-outs like the cheetah print sweater and asymmetric dress capture the ultra-modern attitude of the fall season. I hope you love the collection as much as I do! -Olivia

STYLING THE SKINNY

I had a great opportunity to partner with Lucky Magazine and the lovely Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam on a denim style session last month. Jordan is such a beauty and has a great sense of style, so I was really excited to work with her and the Lucky team on the shoot. Watch and find out how we styled skinny jeans to create two completely different looks, both featuring the ultra-comfy patented Secret Fit Belly® panel. Look for part II of our collaboration featuring the boyfriend jean coming soon. –Olivia

CHIC THIS WEEK: THE DENIM SHIRT

The denim shirt has always been a classic favorite of mine and it also happens to be a key piece for the season. With so many different styling options, I always seemed to repurpose my denim shirt throughout my pregnancy and beyond.

PS. It’s awesome for after baby too for easy nursing access!

Every Mother Counts

One of our favorite bloggers,  Jennifer Rand from Belle De Couture took part in A Pea in the Pod and Citizens of Humanity’s partnership with Every Mother Counts. Founded by Christy Turlington Burns, Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. Jennifer styled the signature tee and Citizens of Humanity jeans to perfection and boasted how comfortable she found the jeans!  We love how she accessorized her look with Saint Laurent sunglasses, vintage Moschino clutch and nude heels.

For each jean sold, A Pea in the Pod will donate $15.00 and Citizens of Humanity will donate $25.00 to EMC to support its efforts to improve global maternal health and reduce maternal mortality worldwide. A Pea in the Pod will also donate $5 from the purchase of every Every Mother Counts t-shirt to the charity.

Many thanks to Jennifer for supporting such a great cause with us here at Destination Maternity!
