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
