Five Ways To Wear the WILDFOX Maternity Tees From A Pea In The Pod

Whether you’re a mom-to-be, or shopping for a friend who is expecting, the vintage-inspired Wildfox tees at A Pea in the Pod® are the perfect summer staples.  The exclusive collection will keep you cool from day to night with styles you can wear both during and after pregnancy.

Here are our five favorite ways to wear these ultra-soft cotton tees this summer:

1. Throw on as a comfy cover-up over your bathing suit while you’re headed to the beach.

2. Add a jean jacket or a blazer for a casual but polished look.

3. Pair with a great pair of jeans while you’re shopping or running errands.  Try one of our best sellers like the AG Jeans Stella Secret Fit Belly® 5 Pocket Maternity Jeans.

4. Add some feminine flair with a flowy maternity skirt.

5. Relax around the house and wear to bed! You can shop the collection’s exclusive styles, which are available for purchase in select stores and online!

Olivia’s Picks: Babymoon Styles

Meet Olivia Capone Myers, Style Director for Destination Maternity Corporation. Don’t know what to pack for your babymoon?  This week she shares her checklist of vacation musts. So  read on and then go back to daydreaming about those mocktails!

1. The Maxi Dress: There’s nothing I find more comfortable than a maternity maxi dress!  It’s a great functional piece for expecting moms! Maxi Dresses are a standout trend for the season and an essential on vacation getaways for pregnant women who crave comfort and style!

2. Butter Top Coat: I love having my nails painted and Butter London’s Top Coat is a great product to help make your manicure last throughout your babymoon.  The Hardwear Top Coat By Butter London™ gives your nails a high-gloss finish and locks in your color.

3. Crop Jeans: It’s hard to find comfortable and cute jeans while you’re pregnant!  That’s why I love these maternity crop jeans; they’re a versatile staple that can be paired with a tank top and wedges, or dressed up with a great heel and blouse for evenings.

4. Bold Printed Scarves: Printed scarves are a great way to chic up any look and can really take your outfit to the next level, while keeping you comfortable during a chilly evening.

5. Do-It-All Moisturizer: A lot of times space is hard to come by in your suitcase, so I always opt for a moisturizer that nourishes both face and body, like Face + Body Lotion By The Honest Company. It contains calming chamomile, calendula and aloe.

6. Maternity Swimsuit: A fabulous fitting swimsuit is a maternity must for expecting moms.  Choose a maternity tankini, which is an excellent choice, or standout in a fun ruffled maternity one piece!

7. Maxi Skirts: Maternity Maxi Skirts are a great way to create a long and lean look for expecting moms.  I love the combo of a maxi, tank and denim jacket for a cool and casual look.  Add some color with our Secret Fit Belly® Relaxed Maternity Skirt in Coral Print.

8. Denim Jacket: I love denim jackets!  They’re the ultimate layering piece that adds instant edge to any outfit.  This Jessica Simpson® Maternity Jacket is not only fashionable, but also a functional addition to your babymoon wardrobe.

9. Sandals: I always opt for thong sandals, because they are an easy option that will go with any summer outfit and are easy on your feet.

10. Cover-up: The Caftan is a chic cover-up choice that’s perfect for the pool or beach.  Throw it on when you’re headed out for a day in the sun, then continue to wear it while you grab late afternoon mocktails and snacks!

Casual Cravings

Sleeveless A-line Maternity DressThe summer grants many opportunities for outside parties & dining al fresco. People are also more apt to walk places, get some sun & explore nature. Dresses are easy outfits, because they are ready to throw on, go out & look completely put together. However, many dresses are too frilly, too restricting & actually just a little too dressy. Enter our sleeveless a-line dress, the one that will take you to that backyard party, to dinner under the stars, to a spontaneous walk to the farmer’s market on a Sunday afternoon.

This dress has a geometric print that makes people take notice without screaming, “Look at me!” The white with grey combo combines for effortless style. The spaghetti straps keep you cool & provide you with the ability to throw on a cardigan, scarf or little jacket when the sun goes down.

The length, which falls just above the knee, is the most versatile since you have the option to dress it up with heels, wedges & even platforms. But because it isn’t too short or too long, flats, sandals & flip flops give this a summery edge.

Let your hair down to frame the v-neck or throw your hair in a messy bun to showcase the back-interest keyhole design. This dress makes sure you look good coming or going.

You are constantly craving the look that works for every day & in every way. This dress is our MOST CRAVED & now your clothing crush!

Oh boy!! … Or Girl!!
