I’m not your typical matchy-matchy mama, but I do love to show my holiday spirt by dressing for a festive weekend. I’m seeing star motifs everywhere this summer and since they are a chic nod to Independence Day, I think they are completely apropos. We usually watch fireworks on the 4th in Philadelphia or at the Jersey shore after attending a BBQ or two, so it’s easy for me to work in some stars and stripes. Here’s a little outfit inspo for your own holiday weekend, including a look for your mini! What are your plans for the 4th? -Olivia

You may know the gorgeous Jessie James Decker from her E! reality TV show Eric & Jessie: Game On. The singer and wife to the New York Jets Wide Receiver Eric Decker was spotted in our AG Jeans looking totally glam while enjoying a sweet treat last week in Los Angeles. Already a mama of one to daughter Vivianne Rose, she is expecting her second baby, a boy, this September. I’m loving that she styled up a destructed denim and button up with a sleek heel and a fabulous blowout! She’s killin’ the boy-meets-girl look as a 2nd time preggonista. Kudo’s Jessie! -Olivia

White is having a major fashion moment this summer. White is classic yet modern, whether a sleek silhouette or added as an accessory. A white maternity dress and jean are essentials for the season and both are versatile enough to be styled up or down. I also love clean white accessories to freshen up a summer look. Mixing white and blue denim staples you already have in your closet such as a short, boyfriend jean or jacket is also a summer must. Happy styling! -Olivia

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.

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!
