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!

LUCKY LOOKS – ST. PADDY’S DAY TEES

MH BLOG St. Paddy's 2018 v1

Let’s get graphic. These tees are the cutest clothes, and they’re so photogenic! We love working with graphic maternity tees, because they’re fun fashion that aren’t meant to be taken too seriously. All of our graphic tees get attention, but the St. Patrick’s Day ones have a certain charm.

St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Saturday this year. The weekend is the best time to top the bump with a shirt that is ready to be seen. They’re perfect for posting; plus, they are always ready to make the reveal. (Look out for an upcoming post on a very lucky gender reveal, with one of these tees as the star!)

You don’t need to be Irish to [sham]rock a lucky look! How do you go graphic? Show us your best materniTEE style using #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodhoodmaternity.

FIVE FUNDAMENTALS: WEEKEND

MH Blog FF Jen Weekend v1

For our last five fundamental style, we had to go with weekend wear! Everyone is working for the weekend, right? We have shown you occasion looks, date night, work, and lounge. Our final beauty and her bump are proving that Saturday is for the mamas!

Who: Jennifer Cho, Senior Designer

What: trimester are you in?  2nd trimester! We already have a son who is 2 and a ½. I can see myself wearing this look to the park with him.

Wear: Side-Ruched Maternity Dress

Side-Ruched Maternity Tee

Denim Maternity Jacket

When: I like tees with leggings normally, and have seen a lot of people tying the tees above the bump on Instagram. I think it’s really cute… I may just try it now!

Why: A dress is a great full outfit from early on, all the way through the end.  I think our jeans are a necessity from the very beginning, especially since my body seemed to change a lot quicker during my second pregnancy. I plan on nursing, so I will be purchasing our clip-down bras and camis. I already own some of the pull-down tanks, since I can wear them now and then after too.

DOWN TO EARTH

the earth mama

Fall is that time of year when everything starts to slow down. The days get shorter; the trees start to lose their leaves and the flowers start to give way to the cooler weather. But, buds are still blooming when it comes to fashion! Our Style Guide is all about incorporating pretty prairie-inspired pieces into your wardrobe.

Stick to a palette that mirrors the world around you. Olive greens, like the ruffle shoulder shirt, become the new neutral that works with every shade from wine, to ivory, to black. Micro-floral prints in the maxi dress make the transition from season to season easy, especially with the full-length silhouette.

We are loving kimono sleeves on everything, so it’s no surprise we see this yellow maternity dress being a best-seller. The color screams fall, while the dramatic florals create a more playful print. Our last style spotlight is on the woven blouse, the epitome of feminine, flowing fashion.

These looks are rooted in pretty. Embrace the change. Better yet, dress for it!

LOVE & LACE – SUMMER WEDDING STYLE

Bride or guest we have the dress

Are you saying “I do” or did you simply just RSVP “yes”?  Either way… we have your dress.

Summer weddings are heating up, and sometimes finding the perfect dress can be hard, especially while pregnant. You want to be comfortable, attractive, able to move. We love our lace hem maxi, because it’s lightweight, empire waist and as the name suggests, trimmed with lace. It’s striking.

Our customers have been asking for more wedding dresses, not only for guests, but for the leading lady- the bride! This particular style is made in white for your big day, as well as light pink and baby blue (which is not shown, but still shoppable!)

Airy, breathable and breathtaking… we cannot wait to see you in this dress. So, show us! Tag us in your pictures on our Instagram, using #thisisgoingtobefun and let us know if you’re the blushing bride or the best dressed guest. And shop all of our maternity dresses here.

Summer Style Staple: The Cargo Pant

MH Cargos[4]

Versatile and comfortable, the cargo pant will be your go-to bottom this summer. This must-have comes in full-length pants and crops and features our Secret Fit Belly® panel, so you can wear seamlessly throughout the season and your pregnancy.  For a day look, try an olive style paired with a maternity tee or dress things up at night in black bottoms and a blouse. You can shop all our cargo pants here. How do you style your cargos? Show us with the hashtag #thisisgoingtobefun!

Celebrate Your Pregnancy with A Graphic Tee

MH Graphic Tees Blog v1

The maternity tee is a must-have for the expecting mom but if you truly want to make a statement, a graphic tee is the way to go! With playful and sweet sayings that celebrate your pregnancy including The Snuggle is Real, Kick Me Baby One More Time and We’re Expanding our Family by Two Feet, these tees are sure to be an instant hit and a go-to style in your wardrobe. Much like your favorite maternity tees, these too are easy to slip on, comfortable and have flattering side-ruching that allows your bump to grow, making them the perfect match for your maternity jeans and shorts.
