The classic and chic little black dress is a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe and is a mom-to-be favorite. Liz wears this staple style in a maternity go-to silhouette, a Side Ruched Maternity Dress. Wearing our elbow sleeve version, Liz proves why having essentials that flatter your figure are key to maternity style ease. This comfy knit dress easily adjusts to your growing bump and it looks amazing after baby too! Easy to style and versatile, a black dress works well on its own or can be layered under a denim or anorak jacket for a casual look or a blazer to the office. For a special occasion, just add a sparkly earring and colorful heels for a look that makes a statement. We love how Liz added seasonal fall accessories like a floppy hat and a belt that accentuates her best accessory, the bump!

With summer winding down and the long Labor Day weekend approaching, we’re planning on soaking up that summer sun and heading to the beach before the season ends. To prepare, we turned to one of our favorite celebrity moms and co-founder of The Honest Company, Jessica Alba, for what she packs in her beach bag. Read along for more from this mom mogul!
Guest Editor: Jessica Alba, Co-Founder of The Honest Company.
Bug Spray: I love our bug spray because it safely repels using organic essential oils (and made without DEET)! It smells so good and is super easy to use – a warm weather must.
Sunscreen: Gentle and effective. Done and done. My beach bag is already stuffed enough, so I go for products that the whole family can use. I’ll give my girls a snack or popsicle while I slather them with sunscreen and reapply throughout the day.
Lip Balm: Our organic lip balm is everything! They are perfect for everyday use, but especially great for summer when my lips get extra chapped. It utilizes Shea butter and aloe leaf extract and comes in three yummy flavors.
Hand Sanitizer Spray: My kids love this stuff – it’s so easy to use and smells great. The quick-drying formula helps kill germs and bacteria and the bottle is perfectly purse-sized.
Wipes : I call these “cheek to cheek” wipes because they work just as well on your own face as they do your baby’s bottom. They wipe down sticky fingers, clean up spills, easily remove makeup, and are great for keeping sandy feet out of the car! My beach tip: stick a travel pack in the ice chest for a quick and easy cooldown.
