HOLIDAY WORK PARTIES

MH BLOG HolidayWorkParty 2018 v3

This is for our corporate mamas, the ones who hold down the nine to fives and then some. The holiday work party comes but once a year. However, it doesn’t look the same for everyone, of course! There are the “parties” that happen on your lunch break, in the company kitchen with homemade cupcakes and sparkling cider when you are still #clockedin. That’s okay. Don’t feel blue; dress in blue.

We have the outfit you need to add some light and life: the tie waist maternity top with a gathered cuff design in teal blue. [This also comes in a burgundy floral print.] Add a black pair of maternity pants, or if your office leans on the casual side, a nice pair of black maternity jeans.

Is your work party #outofoffice? Okay, so this is your chance to dress up. The featured puff sleeve velvet maternity dress is the epitome of LBD, which can also stand for luxurious black dress. Put your bump on display, grab a mocktini and get ready for all the compliments. Your boss may even give you one. Unless, of course, you are the boss.

SO MUCH (MORE) TO CELEBRATE

MH BLOG So Much To Celebrate v1

Sometimes we forget just how incredible being pregnant is. The daily stressors of life get in the way of taking a much-needed moment to sit back and think about how wonderful you really are. You are creating life. What in the world can possibly be more astonishing than that? Whether this is your first time being pregnant, or you’re expecting a fifth child… the human body never ceases to amaze. At the end of the day, you are the reason to celebrate.

Everything may seem to get bigger when you are pregnant, from of course your belly, to your boobs, your butt… all body parts apparently starting with a B.  However, just like the Grinch himself, your heart grows too. It is said that your blood volume can increase by 30 to 50 percent when pregnant, helping your heart rate increase to pump more blood. So, with your bump and heart growing, it’s time to treat your closet to the same. Make your wardrobe grow with help from these celebratory maternity styles.

MORE EARLY STOCKING STUFFERS

MH BLOG EarlyStockingStuffers 2018 v1

These stockings were certainly hung with care. We know that Christmas and Hanukkah are next month, but is it ever really too early to get ahead of the shopping game? We think not, which is why our early stocking stuffers suggestions are here for you NOW!

Our first early stocking stuffers post was all about little gifts for your little gift, aka the baby! And although we still love the Wubbanub, these stocking stuffers are really more for mama. To begin, we shall start at the bottom… and by that we mean your feet. Pregnancy makes you achy and a lot of times your swollen ankles need a break. Give your toes something cozy to slip into with our newest faux fur slide slippers (shown in blush pink and grey) or any of our hospital socks that feature sayings like, “If you can read this, I’m about to be a mom.”

Now work your way up and give your legs super soft maternity leggings, which pair so well with any of the graphic maternity tees and our holiday maternity sweaters. We’ve literally pinned two for you: the mama and baby polar bear sweater and the Santa Baby red sweater. Oh, and that red, green, gold-bowed gem our model is wearing? That’s our Christmas present bow maternity sweater. Because let’s be honest, you and your beautiful bump are the present!

Happy shopping. Stay tuned all month long for more posts featuring gift ideas.

THANKFUL FOR THE SECRET FIT BELLY

MH BLOG SFB Thankful v1

Remember when Joey Tribbiani wore Phoebe’s maternity pants on Thanksgiving because they had so much room to grow as he ate? That’s exactly what this post is tapping into! We are here to give our thanks to our favorite waistband, our exclusive and patented Secret Fit Belly® panel.

HERE ARE THE TOP 3 REASONS YOU’LL LOVE THE SECRET FIT BELLY®

  1. When expecting, you can expect to continue to wear the styles you love. The patented panel is featured not only on our maternity jeans, but on pants and leggings too.
  2. Its seamless construction is fabricated from Nylon/Spandex yarn providing a smooth fit. It also offers great recovery, stretching over your bump at every stage.
  3. Versatile elasticity gives you extra style mileage from your pants. It doesn’t slip, stays fitted, can be folded down or kept up for adjustable comfort that continues to work as your belly grows.

AND BONUS REASON:

It doesn’t constrict you when gobbling down the turkey, the cranberry sauce, the mashed potatoes, the corn, the string beans, the gravy, the sweet potatoes, and it doesn’t make you feel stuffed when eating the stuffing. Plus, it continues to be a sweet choice when piling the whipped cream on your pumpkin pie. That’s the not so secret secret of the belly band. Happy Thanksgiving Mamas!

 

 

CRAVINGS & CLOTHES

MH BLOG Savory vs. Sweet v1

Food definitely comes in and out of fashion. Kale had a couple of years, avocado toast seems to be the best thing since sliced bread, and microgreens are having a macro moment. And of course, there’s the pulse of social media making food so stylish that we like, share, and repost lunch like it’s runway ready. For us, we are dishing up [pun totally intended] cravings and clothing that are sweet, savory, salty and stylish. What are better pairings than these?

Sweet pomegranates are literally bursting with juicy flavor and color. The deep red seeds are a little tart, and totally stunning on camera. We love the way they look with shades of wine, mixed berries and dark reds. The super soft hacci knit maternity dress is one we love in any shade, but this burgundy/black number is trending right along with the autumn fruit. You’ll love it so much you may just want it in grey, teal or olive too.

Sweet is nice, but savory is downright satiating. Our navy maternity sweater is cozy, yes, but also striking. The rich blue is perfect for this time of year. We like our outfits with the ultimate food duo: chips and dip. We chose to shoot crunchy blue-corn tortilla chips with artichoke and spinach dip. Classy, crunchy, crave-worthy. Oh, and this sweater also comes in radicchio, you know the leafy vegetable in the shade of a pomegranate! Go ahead and snap a picture of you in blue. Stay salty Mama – it’s not always a bad thing!

We have your sweet, we have your salty, but let’s talk about crossover cravings: salty and sweet! Popcorn covered with chocolate is a pretty perfect pair. We shot it against our maternity maxi dress featuring a sweet dusty pink pleated skirt and a soft black top. The contrast actually creates a balance and therefore is representing salty and sweet, again a pretty perfect pairing. [Editor’s Note: This style is dropping next week, so head to your local store to get it before Thanksgiving or make it your holiday must when it’s shoppable online!]

What are you craving? How are you dressing? Tell us. We’re hungry to see more! @motherhoodmaternity #thisisgoingtobefun

WRAPPING UP COZY

MH BLOG WrappingUpCozy v1

October started out a little too warm for our liking. The leaves didn’t know what to do and the bees were still buzzing. Of course, we are speaking from the East Coast, since our headquarters and distribution center are in New Jersey. However, as the weeks went on we went from endless summer to welcoming winter! It’s like fall didn’t, well, fall. Lately the chill has been strong, and our cozy campaign finally has come to life.

What we love most about the change in the seasons is the different activities that follow suit. Spring is amazing for the re-awaking of the earth. We love switching up clothing, the flowers blooming, and outdoor activities are back on the table. Summer is great for swimming and vacationing. Autumn is so fashion-forward and there is no shortage of apple to pumpkin picking adventures. But what we are doing now is bearing down for winter. And with winter comes cuddling. You’re going to need some outfits that help you get your snuggle on.

We of course recommend maternity sweaters, maternity leggings, the comfiest maternity sleepwear, our stretchy side-ruched maternity tees, a really good maternity sleep bra or the best-selling seamless bra… both which become nursing bras, and then nursing styles in general for our new mamas. The effortless outfits make having cabin fever more fun. And we’re totally okay with staying home in style!

TURKEY TEES

MH BLOG Turkey Tees 2018 v1

What’s on the menu for Thanksgiving when it comes to dressing? Go for cute and comfy this year, Mama! Our maternity graphic tees are dishing up something special for you.

Let’s talk turkey… literally. The two shown holiday tees are all about the little one cooking in your belly. We loved the color of the top maternity shirt and had thought about taking it to another level with a complementary plaid maternity button up in reds, burgundy and shades of blue.

Our second turkey tee featured pops of bright orange and yellow, so we mellowed out the gray graphic by pairing it with our white and black plaid top. We imagined it open over the tee with our stretchy and supportive Secret Fit Belly® maternity jeans. Just wait until you see why we’re thankful for them! [Editor’s Note: look for a blog post coming soon!]

Although not in your face Thanksgiving, we also sell our exclusive Blessed to be a Mama maternity t-shirt, which also comes in plus sizing 1X-3X. Oh… and that cute letterboard that we used in our photo shoots – we sell that too! Make it yours.

Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 22nd, so make sure you order these styles this week to ensure they come in time with standard shipping and delivery. Also make sure you tag us in your Thanksgiving look, either today with #GraphicTeeTuesday or always with #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity!

EARLY STOCKING STUFFERS: gifts for your little gift

MH BLOG Baby Gifts v2

We know, we know… the baby IS THE GIFT! But that doesn’t mean he or she shouldn’t have some special presents in the stocking and underneath the tree. We compiled some little gifts for your little gift all in one little guide!

First you need to show off the baby in the bump. We love sonogram picture frames, like any of our Pearhead for Motherhood ornaments and keepsakes. Then, you need to make sure you have the best diaper bags to keep all these goodies in! Now that you’ve got those on the list, let’s get to the cute stuff.

Let’s talk toys. We’ve got your baby’s sidekick… the stuffed animal is attached to a silicone and no-splinter wooden ring for teething tots. Plus, feel good putting this on your wishlist because for every product sold, Bella Tunno donates 1 meal to 1 child in America. The always favorite Wubbanub is another must. Part paci, part plush… it’s going to be your baby’s biggest obsession. And although the last one may not be an actual toy, your child is going to love it like a prized possession: the Pop Pacifier! It can fall, and you can relax. It will fold into itself so the nipple part never hits the floor!

Let’s get practical. Baby is going to teeth and dirty hands are going to be in his or her mouth. Enter the Munch Mitt! The gum-soothing mitten can be used from 3 months to 12 months. It’s interchangeable between hands, is washable and features 100% silicone for endless chewing and chomping. And go ahead and throw an adorable baby bodysuit into your cart. You wouldn’t want your cutie to be cold, right?

Let’s make memories. Our milestone markers from Mudpie for Motherhood feature the muslin blanket with felt frame and 3-piece month/week wooden block set. We will start and finish our gift guide with a frame: the baby prints photo frame is also by Pearhead for Motherhood.

Happy shopping mamas…
