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

Nurseries We Love: Nautical

This classic theme has become a modern go-to for the nursery. Traditionally displayed in a blue and white palette, touches of red, yellow and even pink breathe new life into all things nautical for your little one’s haven.

A soothing space reflects small touches of life on the water.

Is there anything as spectacular as the site of luscious red roses? Deeply saturated yet full of vibrancy, we absolutely adore this berry-kissed shade, especially in the form of this gorgeous, party-ready sleeveless maternity dress by Velvet by Graham & Spencer!

Looks We Love

Skinny pants paired with a long and flowing top is the perfect daytime look for year-round wear. We adore how the bright red hue of these Secret Fit Belly® 5 pocket skinny leg maternity pants pops against the contrast of blue in our long sleeve convertible sleeve maternity top. Both available in alternate colors, mix and match these maternity wardrobe must-haves for a fabulous array of looks you are sure to love.

The versatility of fall’s hottest hue, pale pink, is both refreshing and exciting and can be paired with almost any color. Blocked out with shades of red or complimented with a variety of earth tones, this color truly goes the distance.

Perfect for your cold-weather wardrobe, this soft and cozy maternity sweater will keep you both comfortable and stylish. For a striking contrast, try the richer tone in the color family, burgundy. This simple and chic long sleeve maternity top is bold, beautiful, deliciously saturated and will pair perfectly with dark washed skinnies.

Four Things We Love // Fall 2013 Edit

Weekends are all about kicking back and taking a much needed breather. Whether you relax by running around town, meeting up with friends or simply curling up on the couch with a good book, hot drink and a comforting meal, we hope you enjoy every minute of it.

Breakfast in bed never tasted so good thanks to Oatmeal Pancakes with Maple-Glazed Roasted Apples.

There may not be a more fall-perfect maternity sweater – we love the cut, the color, the whole thing.

Put away that flat iron; a messy-chic low bun is just what the weekend calls for.

We’re reading the inspiring book, Words That Matter, because if Oprah tells you it’s a must-read, it is.

Trending on Texture

maternity clothesLace and crochet details add texture to this season’s coveted pieces that set them apart from day-to-day basics. Whether it’s all over, or just a hint of it here and there, texture adds interest to feminine silhouettes that show off your shape. Whether highlighting fall’s gem tone hues, basic black or winter whites, you will need little else but a flattering pair of pants or pencil skirt and a cool jacket to achieve must-have looks with a highlight on texture.
