Chic This Week // The Must-Have Maxi + How to Wear It

With summer almost here, a wardrobe that keeps you cool and comfortable is a must, especially if you are expecting! The one item I tell every mom-to-be to invest in if they are expecting during the warmer months is a maxi! An instant outfit, a maxi is versatile enough to be worn throughout your whole pregnancy. This version from Isabella Oliver is one of my favorites. The simple knit print and side-ruching feature makes this dress extremely flattering. For an effortless and on trend weekend look, I suggest pairing a maxi with a thong sandal, panama hat and cuff. Dress things up for an evening out with a wedge, statement necklace and jacket. Happy styling -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

THE DENIM DRESS

The Chambray Dress The Chambray Dress

Spring assortments are hitting stores this month full of new neutrals, soft colors with bright pops, plus DENIM! If you are anything like me, then I know you are looking forward to updating your wardrobe, so look for lots of destructed washes and silhouettes. Denim is so hot right now, ever since the chambray shirt became a staple in any woman’s closet, especially in the maternity fashion world.

The denim dress is also new on the scene and what’s great about this piece is that you can wear it now or later when the weather gets warmer. Here’s how: since indigo looks great with colors and neutrals alike, I personally pair mine with classic shades. For instance, against a black tight and chic blazer, the indigo denim really pops. Add in some cool winter accessories like a cashmere hat, infinity scarf and booties to make a look that is edgy and cool. Finish with a statement bag and dark polish.

For later, I love playing up the denim dress with a chic nude and metallic palette. Start with a nude seamless maternity camisole for smoothing support; add an oversized straw hat and metallic thong sandal. Keep your accessories minimal with a metallic ring, nude nail and bag. Of course, I always suggest a signature frame to complete the look. If you are newly expecting, this new LBD (little blue dress) is a great investment piece since you can wear it through the rest of the winter season, through the summer and even after baby. Happy styling! -Olivia

    I've had to eat a substantial breakfast pretty much first thing during this pregnancy to avoid feeling sick and have energy through the day. I made a scramble with some beautiful farm-fresh pastured eggs, crispy bacon, potatoes, and spinach for everyone this morning! Now to prep some festive Popsicles and tonight's sides. @againstallgrain #DMtakeover It's our first day of summer here since this little guy graduated preschool Friday! We're going to take our time getting the day started and snuggle on the couch for a bit. This momma is tired! He's munching on a Hidden Veggie Muffin (grain-free and packed with vegetables!) from my first cookbook Against all Grain. Throw some mini dairy-free chocolate chips into them for an extra special treat! 
#healthykids #againstallgrain #glutenfree @againstallgrain #DMtakeover I'm starting off my morning wrapping up a couple of quick loose ends for work before spending the day with my family. And these festive berries were calling my name! @againstallgrain #DMtakeover #MemorialDay Good morning and Happy Memorial Day! I'm Danielle Walker from @againstallgrain and I'm so happy to be here taking over the Destination Maternity Instagram today! Asher is so excited to be a big brother and loves to help in the kitchen! #DMtakeover [photo credit: @jenniferskog]
