Memorial Day means a long weekend filled with family, fun, and food! This year, my husband and I decided on taking a few day trips; we will be checking out the Frida Khalo: Art, Garden, Life Exhibit at The New York Botanical Garden and then heading to Margate, NJ for a relaxing beach day. There will definitely be a requisite BBQ (or two!) in between. Whether you are getting out of town, heading off to the beach or planning to lounge pool side, it’s important to look great AND feel comfortable. With just a few maternity pieces like a caftan maxi, boyfriend jean and tankini, you can have a holiday weekend wardrobe that is versatile and totally on trend. Don’t forget the suncreen! -Olivia

The free-spirited style of the ‘70s has made a comeback and is even better with a bump! Tie-dye prints, maxi dresses, the peasant blouse, floppy hats and fringe are just some of the latest trends to love this summer. This sunset-hued maxi from A Pea in the Pod, paired with antique gold accessories, a fringe bag, wide brim hat and round sunnies, nails the bohemian look. Opt for a destructed vintage jean with a peasant blouse for another fabulous circa-‘70s summer look. -Olivia

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

It sounds corny to say but I’ve always dreamed about becoming a mother and knew it was going to be the most important part of my life from a young age — so I honestly have a hard time believing it’s actually happening, and in 9 weeks! I know it will be the most challenging and fulfilling role of my life and I can’t wait to experience life through the eyes of a child and explore the world with her.
I’m pregnant with my first baby girl and couldn’t be more excited. Here I’m wearing an Isabella Oliver dress from A Pea in the Pod that I absolutely love! Photo by Lucy Cuneo Photography for Style Within Reach I try to start my day by 6:30am since I’ve found myself to be most productive before 3pm in my third trimester — this allows me to get through the most difficult and time consuming tasks before my energy gets zapped!I try to always keep our house full of fresh blooms and sneak out to Whole Foods for a lunch break at least once a week to pick them up. I’m always planning outfits for upcoming shoots for my blog. These Joe’s Jeans from A Pea in the Pod are my favorite maternity jeans and I can’t wait for it to be warm enough to wear this eyelet top! Our nursery is almost ready for our little lady but we still have some work to do! The gallery wall is my favorite! I’ll be sharing the full tour soon on The Glitter Guide!
Tip: Since becoming pregnant I’ve been living with a capsule wardrobe and love how easy it makes getting dressed in the morning. Easy basics that can be mixed and matched like this chambray tunic from Motherhood Maternity, white jeans, jersey dresses, simple blouses and cardigans fill my closet.

Here’s a few of my pregnancy nightime essentials; This Zoe Organics belly butter is so great and I also love Mustela USA ‘s oil. The Glow also inspires me daily and I’ve had such a sweet tooth throughout my pregnancy, nightly ice cream is my treat.
Happy Mother’s Day to you all and don’t forget to share your own photos on Instagram and Twitter showing your excitement about becoming a mother too using the hashtag #happinessisontheway! -Caitlin

Is your baby shower approaching? Don’t panic! I’ve got you covered with some totally chic options that are perfect for a spring shower.
Coral is trending right now and I love it for a baby shower, especially if you’re expecting a girl! The pleating on this dress is feminine without being too frilly which works perfectly with a bump. Pair with metallic accessories for a fresh modern finish. And I suggest going with a wedge since it gives you some height without being too high! Head over www.destinationmaternity.com for the full assortment of shower-perfect dresses! Congrats! -Olivia

Shades of indigo from breezy blues to chambray are in for spring. The denim on denim look truly ushered in this trend, but jeans look equally good when paired with a soft or even bright blue. In a maternity maxi, silk top or a fun accessory, we love this color for moms-to-be for spring! -Olivia

Last weekend, we celebrated our exclusive collection with style maven Rachel Zoe by throwing shopping celebrations in select A Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity stores throughout the country. While shopping, guests enjoyed macarons from Dana’s Bakery personalized with our hashtag #RachelZoexAPIP in flavors like chocolate molten and jelly doughnut- YUM! Décor included all white floral arrangements with peeled back roses and hydrangeas (Rachel’s favorites).
I had the pleasure of hosting two of the events in sunny Aventura and Coral Gables, Florida. It was so much fun to meet with clients and introduce them to the collection! I was able to advise on the best ways to style the bump while helping the expecting moms-to-be shop for their maternity essentials and wardrobe.
Los Angeles-based blogger Leanne Barlow hosted the event in Beverly Hills and looked GORGEOUS in the Rachel Zoe Printed Caftan Maternity Dress.
Bloggers Nicole Gonzalez of Lillies and Leon, who also donned the caftan, and Staci Acquasanta of Leather and Leops, who rocked the Rachel Zoe Exposed Zipper Maternity Mini Dress, hosted the event in New York. Plus, DreamDry,the premier blowdry and styling salon co-founded by Rachel, held a braid bar to add even more boho-chic flair.
Don’t fret if you missed our events! The collection is available online and in stores.
Hope to see you at our future shopping events! Xoxo- Olivia

Move over skinnies, Joggers are on the scene! The jogger is the perfect trend for expecting mamas who want the comfort of an easy silhouette. It can so easily be styled up with a jacket and heel or styled down with chic flats and a tee. Wear it before and after baby, too, for tons of wardrobe mileage! -Olivia
