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

port of call

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.

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.

Four Things

In the midst of all the holiday chaos, we are doing our best to stay cool, calm and collected. From preparing for the big feast to taking part in last minute shopping, here are four things to eat, wear, do and nest, which we hope will make this special time of year that much sweeter.

A batch of sinfully indulgent Hot Cocoa Cookies feels 100% necessary right about now.

Cozy up in an ultra-soft Cable Knit Cashmere Maternity Sweater in a beautiful array of hues.

It’s amazing how an unexpected touch of white eye liner adds instant brightness and pop.

The chic color combination of black and white never goes out of style. Bring polka dots into the mix and you’ve got instant sophistication.

We love the look of this Ron Herman cashmere sweater. Soft and luxurious, it’s a piece that can take you from work to play in seconds flat. Paired with super skinny J Brand black jeans, the look is put-together and polished.

Get the look for less with our ¾ sleeve side ruched maternity sweater. The flattering side ruching helps to accentuate your bump while the dot print adds a hint of playfulness. Pair this sweater with our Secret Fit Belly® ponte super soft skinny leg maternity pants for an outfit that’s sleek, incredibly comfortable and under $70!

Finally, for some extra bits and pieces of versatility, add a strand of pearls and a pair of patent heels to dress it up, or throw on a blazer and pair of brightly colored flats for a more understated approach.

Color Crush: Oatmeal and Cream

Perhaps one of our favorite combinations, oatmeal and cream, is one to adore. Neutral in look, yet ultra-appealing to the eye, it’s not only sweet to eat, but to wear as well. A closet basic, this 3/4 sleeve Henley maternity t shirt is one to wear morning, noon and night – while snacking on an oatmeal crème pie, of course.
