Most Craved Monday

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.

Five Tips for a Seamless Transition Into Spring

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Cold, blustery days are almost gone and warmer temperatures will soon be on their way. Here are five fashion tips to follow for an easy transition into spring:

  • Pretty Pastels: Glamour Magazine says pastels are one of the most “wearable trends” from the Spring 2014 runways. Add some color into your wardrobe with light and airy sweaters or bright colored denim that can easily transition you into spring.
  • Flower Power: Incorporate some floral prints like this ultra-feminine, Jessica Simpson floral blouse to complement key pieces of your wardrobe.
  • The Novel Jacket: Swap your winter coat for a lighter option.  Ditch heavier outerwear for a jacket with a sleek and edgy vibe; think faux-leather and Moto jackets.
  • The Finishing Touch: Nail polish is a fun and easy way to incorporate the trendiest spring colors into your wardrobe. Try one of our new Butter London nail lacquers in a variety of on-trend shades.

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.
