Trend Alert // The Floral Dress + Garden Party Flair

trendalert-garden 2Floral, lace and pretty pastel colors are key trends for summer! When incorporating them into your look, the trick is balancing the ultra-feminine pieces and colors with edgier accessories. For example, pairing this A Pea in the Pod floral maternity dress with a clutch featuring sleek hardware or layering in metallic jewelry. That fresh combination keeps the trend modern, without being too girly. While perfect for a summer soiree, these pretty pieces can find multiple uses and complement the rest of your maternity wardrobe. Looking for a fun way to embrace the trend and get together with friends? Throw a glam garden party and you’ll already know what to wear! Happy styling! –Olivia

Date Night Dress Dilemma?

Fall is my favorite time to try new restaurants with my husband or catch up with the girls, because the weather is perfect for a stroll in the city. Plus,  it’s a great opportunity to layer up a look.

Choosing a restaurant should be the hardest part, not figuring out what you’re going to wear! When I was pregnant I lived in draped dresses, so I can speak from experience that they are comfortable, versatile, flattering and still an important silhouette this fall. This style of maternity dress is my fashionista pick for a night out.

This new version from A Pea in the Pod is super chic since it’s in silk and has a sweet leather collar.  It’s also in a great deep green color, which isn’t that typical, which is what I really like about it. I also suggest layering a seamless maternity cami underneath to keep you smooth and supported- I lived in cami’s! Pair it with a biker jacket, leopard clutch, a nude nail and a not too high heel… bam, you have date night dressing solved!

Casual Cravings

Sleeveless A-line Maternity DressThe summer grants many opportunities for outside parties & dining al fresco. People are also more apt to walk places, get some sun & explore nature. Dresses are easy outfits, because they are ready to throw on, go out & look completely put together. However, many dresses are too frilly, too restricting & actually just a little too dressy. Enter our sleeveless a-line dress, the one that will take you to that backyard party, to dinner under the stars, to a spontaneous walk to the farmer’s market on a Sunday afternoon.

This dress has a geometric print that makes people take notice without screaming, “Look at me!” The white with grey combo combines for effortless style. The spaghetti straps keep you cool & provide you with the ability to throw on a cardigan, scarf or little jacket when the sun goes down.

The length, which falls just above the knee, is the most versatile since you have the option to dress it up with heels, wedges & even platforms. But because it isn’t too short or too long, flats, sandals & flip flops give this a summery edge.

Let your hair down to frame the v-neck or throw your hair in a messy bun to showcase the back-interest keyhole design. This dress makes sure you look good coming or going.

You are constantly craving the look that works for every day & in every way. This dress is our MOST CRAVED & now your clothing crush!
