EAT: A roasted banana boat is the perfect snack to satisfy cravings and stay healthy! Add in some walnuts for a dose of good-for-you omegas and dark chocolate chips for antioxidants. Haylie Duff and her sister Hilary sweeten up the warm, campfire snack with marshmallows- a welcome twist on the classic S’more.

WEAR: Nothing screams spring like a flirty little dress. Our Sleeveless Fit and Flare Maternity Dress with an empire waist and scoop neck will have you looking sweeter than jelly beans this holiday.

DO: As the temperatures go up, you may wish your hair does as well. These 6 Easy Braided Hair Styles will keep you cool and comfortable while staying on-trend.

CREATE: Like flowers in the spring, babies seem to boom and bloom around this season. Try something different for your next baby shower gift and create these adorable numbered baby bodysuits, or keep them for you and your baby!

Property of Destination Maternity Corporation

A Pea in the Pod’s spring collection evokes a casual, nautical style that is perfect for warmer weather.  From chambray blues and preppy stripes to comfortable linen fabrics, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team focused on sea-inspired colors for this season’s collection:

“Our ‘Port of Call’ delivery for spring is based on sea faring islands with a soft vintage feel. The collection includes a wide array of bold stripes, crochet work, mixed media, mosaic and paisley prints paired with light wash denim. An indigo and chambray blue color story is the foundation of this group with pops of fuchsia and an increasing presence of white, which we will continue into the summer season.”

Key pieces include a flowy, 3/4 Sleeve Dress in a blue and white mosaic print, perfect for your spring baby shower. Spring’s must-have chambray convertible sleeve shirt creates a casual-chic look when paired with our Secret Fit Belly® Linen Cargo Pocket Maternity Crop Pants. Our bump-flattering Cap Sleeve Boat Neck Maternity T Shirt combined with our Secret Fit Belly® Cuffed Maternity Crop Jeans will keep you both comfortable and stylish throughout the season

Nurseries We Love: Pop of Orange

Whether acting as an accent to an otherwise neutral décor or as a compliment to a mate on the color wheel, a pop of orange adds a sunny touch of happy to any nursery. Without being too harsh – say like a fire engine red – orange brings mellow warmth to a room that’s perfect for baby.

With a base of aqua and grey, small pops of orange bring a ray of cheer!

Nurseries We Love: Nautical

This classic theme has become a modern go-to for the nursery. Traditionally displayed in a blue and white palette, touches of red, yellow and even pink breathe new life into all things nautical for your little one’s haven.

A soothing space reflects small touches of life on the water.
