A Celebration of Style

Last weekend, we celebrated our exclusive collection with style maven Rachel Zoe by throwing shopping celebrations in select A Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity stores throughout the country. While shopping, guests enjoyed macarons from Dana’s Bakery personalized with our hashtag #RachelZoexAPIP in flavors like chocolate molten and jelly doughnut- YUM! Décor included all white floral arrangements with peeled back roses and hydrangeas (Rachel’s favorites).

I had the pleasure of hosting two of the events in sunny Aventura and Coral Gables, Florida.   It was so much fun to meet with clients and introduce them to the collection!  I was able to advise on the best ways to style the bump while helping the expecting moms-to-be shop for their maternity essentials and wardrobe.

Los Angeles-based blogger Leanne Barlow hosted the event in Beverly Hills and looked GORGEOUS in the Rachel Zoe Printed Caftan Maternity Dress.

Bloggers Nicole Gonzalez of Lillies and Leon, who also donned the caftan, and Staci Acquasanta of Leather and Leops, who rocked the Rachel Zoe Exposed Zipper Maternity Mini Dress, hosted the event in New York.  Plus, DreamDry,the premier blowdry and styling salon co-founded by Rachel, held a braid bar to add even more boho-chic flair.

Don’t fret if you missed our events!  The collection is available online and in stores.

Hope to see you at our future shopping events!  Xoxo- Olivia

Trend Report: High Contrast Stripes and Playful Prints

Fashionistas and runway reports agree: prints are taking center stage when it comes to spring trends. Whether it’s floral, plaid, animal or striped, prints are everywhere from tops and dresses to shoes and accessories.

Olivia Capone Myers, Design Director for A Pea in the Pod, touches on this exciting trend: “Impactful prints are an easy way to add a little punch to your wardrobe. Prints are great to wear during your pregnancy and add an element femininity and playfulness to simple silhouettes. There are so many options to try this spring.”

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
