MATERNITY DENIM: BLOGGER STYLE

StyleFile-BloggerHudson-1_608x196StyleFile-BloggerHudson-2_608x826StyleFile-BloggerHudson-3_608x672

Here’s the latest round-up of some of my favorites expecting bloggers. This season it’s all about dark denim with cool coating or leather-like finishes and these ladies all rock the look perfectly with their bumps.

Bloggers Irina Bond of Bond Girl Glam, Ananda Saba of Super Fashionable and Andee Layne of The Honeybee all have such great style that it’s no surprise they continue to look completely chic throughout their pregnancies. Both Irina and Andee are sporting DL1961’s coated Secret Fit Belly® skinny jeans. I love that Irina totally tones them down with an easy tee and our chunky maternity cardi, and Andee goes rocker glam in an all-black ensemble with chic heels and a red felt hat. It goes to show that these jeans are versatile, especially since they can even be worn after baby too.

Another fashion-forward dark skinny look I love is on Ananda, who is wearing our Secret Fit Belly® AG black skinny maternity jeans. Here she styles them with a pretty pair of flats and chic leather jacket, totally nailing the desk to dinner look. Plus, her accessories are always on point with a fabulous red lip and cat eye shades.

FALL FAMILY FUN: PUMPKIN PICKING

Fall Fun- Pumpkin PickingHalloween FunHalloween Fun

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! It’s the perfect jacket weather, best for being outdoors with my boys and taking weekend day trips. It seems like everyone heads over to their local farmer’s market or pumpkin patch for a hayride and some family fun as soon as the first leaf changes. It always makes for a perfect family photo-op too, right? So, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share our family photos with you! (Share yours with us on our Instagram pages!)

My husband and I have a great routine of switching and taking turns snapping photos of each other with our son to capture our memories. A great tip he actually taught me was to takes lots of shots, and to keep them candid. We always take photos when the other is in motion and try not to set up every shot with us mugging in the camera. Capturing more candid photos make for more natural pictures, many times really capturing the true expression of the moment as opposed to a forced smile. Now don’t get me wrong, we always get some nice portraits, but more natural photos usually make for better images, especially if you want to hang them in your home.

Knowing that we would get some great photos during our trip to the pumpkin patch, I had to wear something befitting. In my usual style, I opted for a cool jacket, destructed jean, (yes, these are still maternity jeans! Just fold over the Secret Fit Belly® panel) pullover sweater, and dark shades – simple pieces that offer mucho style- perfect for our fall family day! -Olivia

CHIC THIS WEEK: DOUBLE DENIM

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

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

Do-No-Wrong Denim

There’s not much that can’t be done with denim; and when it comes to maternity, we absolutely adore it. From dresses and tops to distressed shorts and skinny jeans, denim is a go-to style for any mom-to-be. Try pairing two pieces together – a light chambray top with a pair of dark wash bottoms – or go for one look in a button down denim shirt dress. Accessorized with any and all colors galore, it’s a year-round trend that is never going to go out of style.

Front woman of both No Doubt and her expanding family, Gwen Stefani is one of the most stylish moms in Hollywood! Currently expecting her third, Gwen proves that mamas-to-be can rock fashion-forward ensembles that are on-trend with a hint of edge.

The master of casual-cool styling – pairing a high-low hem cable knit sweater with destructed, cuffed denim, two-tone heels and a pair of sunnies – she’s a fashion force to be reckoned with. Get Gwen’s look with our long sleeve cable knit maternity sweater paired with our destructed maternity boyfriend jeans by SOLD Design Lab. Go for the total look with a pair of color-block heels, or keep it comfortable with some patent leather flats. Either way, your style is sure to stand out.

More than Just Jeans

Yes, we adore our maternity jeans; ultra-comfortable and stylish, they take us through the whole nine months and beyond. However, for a different spin, dare to do denim in an unexpected way! From shirts and jackets to vests and dresses, denim has found an on-trend home on much more than your basic bottoms. Mixed together – in varying washes such as indigo and chambray – or worn separately with pops of bright hues, denim is a quintessential style maker 12 months-a-year.
