Inspiration Behind the Design: A Pea in the Pod’s Spring Collection

Property of Destination Maternity Corporation

A Pea in the Pod’s spring collection evokes a casual, nautical style that is perfect for warmer weather.  From chambray blues and preppy stripes to comfortable linen fabrics, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team focused on sea-inspired colors for this season’s collection:

“Our ‘Port of Call’ delivery for spring is based on sea faring islands with a soft vintage feel. The collection includes a wide array of bold stripes, crochet work, mixed media, mosaic and paisley prints paired with light wash denim. An indigo and chambray blue color story is the foundation of this group with pops of fuchsia and an increasing presence of white, which we will continue into the summer season.”

Key pieces include a flowy, 3/4 Sleeve Dress in a blue and white mosaic print, perfect for your spring baby shower. Spring’s must-have chambray convertible sleeve shirt creates a casual-chic look when paired with our Secret Fit Belly® Linen Cargo Pocket Maternity Crop Pants. Our bump-flattering Cap Sleeve Boat Neck Maternity T Shirt combined with our Secret Fit Belly® Cuffed Maternity Crop Jeans will keep you both comfortable and stylish throughout the season

Globes Report: Mamas-in-Waiting Walk the Red Carpet!

Celebrity moms-to-be, Drew Barrymore, Kerry Washington and Olivia Wilde, looked flawless at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards!

Drew looked pretty in pink in a high-low Monique Lhuillier dress. With intricate pink and red 3D flowers, she certainly made a fashion statement!

Kerry opted for a sleek and sophisticated, off-white Balenciaga gown. The gorgeous v-neckline was super flattering and the petal-like shape showed off her growing baby bump.

Olivia Wilde stunned in an Emerald, ¾ sleeve Gucci gown. The sparkling frock enhanced her pregnancy glow and the column silhouette perfectly accented her shape.

A Pea in the Pod® can help other moms-to-be look just as red-carpet ready!

Start with Glowing Skin:

The best accessory for a gorgeous gown is glowing skin. Start by using an exfoliator like Basq Skincare’s Citrus Sugar Body Polish to help revitalize the skin. After exfoliating, enhance your pregnancy glow with St. Tropez Naturals Self Tan Milk which will give you a natural hint of color. Finally, maintain vibrancy and keep skin hydrated with Mama Mio’s New Super-rich Body Cream. With these three easy steps, your skin will look flawless for your special event.

Get a Seamless Look:

Shapewear will help you achieve the same sleek and beautiful silhouette for your own special and every day occasions. A Pea in the Pod® carries shapewear from brands including Spanx® and Belly Bandit®, Tummy Tube® by A Pea in the Pod, as well as a selection of seamless, adjustable strap and shelf-bra camis that are perfect to pair with any outfit.

Find the Perfect Dress:

Whether sleek or flowing or made of leather or lace, you can find your own red-carpet-ready look at A Pea in the Pod! Shop our evening maternity dresses.
