Getting ready for a night out on the town? Style Director Olivia Capone Myers lists her Top 5 tips for a special night out with your partner:
1. Choosing a brightly colored dress in a simple silhouette is a fabulous choice for a night out. Keep the focus on this CHARLIE JADE Sleeveless Keyhole Maternity Dress by pairing it with a simple clutch or scarf.
2. Skinny Jeans can look fancy, fresh and fun when paired with a jacket or blazer and heels. Don’t be afraid to try a bold print like these Hudson Jeans® Secret Fit Belly® Plain Weave Denim 5 Pocket Skinny Leg Maternity Ankle Pants in Polka Dot.
3. A jersey dress is a date night choice that is sexy and comfortable. Show off your bump in this perfect-for-summer Isabella Oliver Short Sleeve Side Ruched Maternity Dress.
4. The maxi dress is a must have for mom-to-be this summer! Dress it down with a jean jacket, like this Mavi Button Front Plain Weave Denim Maternity Jacket for day or play it up for evening with a great strappy heel and the right accessories. I love this Sleeveless Colorblock Maternity Maxi Dress.
5. An embellished top like this Willow & Clay Cap Sleeve Embellished Maternity Blouse is a simple way to dress up denim and is perfect for a night of dinner and mocktails.

Have you ever wanted that one piece that you can literally wear anytime and with anything? Jessica Simpson, style-maven and equally stylish mommy, has the answer to your desires with her empire waist maternity maxi dress.
If spring and summer could combine to create the perfect color palette, this dress would be the result. In soft hues of blue, the water-color design flows perfectly from the ribbed top to the tiered bottom.
Wear it with its matching spaghetti straps or remove them for a tube-top look. Tie the drawstring around your baby-bump or let it go loose for a casual accent to your growing belly. Add a cardigan, a denim coat, a scarf… even a leather jacket to toughen up the feminine fashion will work! Or… wear it alone and let the print speak for itself.
Add gladiator sandals, wedges, flip-flops or flats. Whatever shoes you choose, you will be in awe by its maximum length made for maximum fashion. These are just some reasons why this dress is our MOST CRAVED.

What celebrity mom or mom-to-be do you admire for their fashion choices?
I love how Nicole Richie dresses. She always looks so casual and yet so put together; she looks just as natural in a pair of flat sandals chasing after her little ones, as she does out on the town in sexy stilettos!

Meet Jacky: Our Senior Online Marketing Manager! Jacky graciously allowed us to take a peek inside her super-adorable baby shower and told us a little bit about the process:
Tell us about your shower outfit! What did you love most about it?
I’m very petite, so I wanted to wear something fitted that showed off my baby bump. I loved this Laundry by Shelli Segal Dress right away because it was comfortable and stylish, which is very important to me at this point in my pregnancy. To add in a pop of color, I paired the dress with a bright statement necklace. I made sure to wear a maternity shaper underneath, which helped to give me a smooth, sleek look and also helped to relieve some back pain I’ve been experiencing.
Q: How did you decide on your location and theme? Who helped to plan the shower?
The town I live in is very rich in history, so I really wanted to take advantage of that. The shower was held at a charming, old hotel that was built in the 1700’s with beautiful antique features. Since my husband and I are keeping the gender of the baby a secret, the theme was “What Will it Bee?” My family coordinated everything around the theme from the honey jar favors to the bee hive shaped cake. My mother-in-law even baked all the sweet treats that also fit into the theme. It was truly perfect!
Q: What was the most memorable gift you received?
We received a lot of amazing and thoughtful gifts. One of the gifts that stood out to me is from my mother-in-law. She crocheted a replica of an alphabet picture that my husband had in his room as a baby; that was very special to me. Passing on these traditions are very important in building our family together.
