Like Kristie, who is wearing a Short Sleeve Henley Collar Henley Maternity T Shirt in chambray, be bold with your color choices this season. A maternity tee is a comfortable mom-to-be favorite and the button detail on this top adds a stylish flair.  Opt for color in your basic tees like Kristie or try other wardrobe classics like stripes or neutrals.

White jeans are a summer style staple. Pairing white with a blue hue is an easy way to try the Americana trend, a go-to for the season. All of our jean styles feature our Secret Fit Belly® panel; so whether you go bright in white or stick with classic blue, you’ll find a fit and wash that’s comfortable without sacrificing your personal style.

Kristie finishes off her outfit with a nude tote and wedges, and incorporates subtle pops of color in her necklace and sunglasses.

Hacking Into That Post-Baby Energy

At 18 and 21, respectively, my baby girls are far from being babies but I don’t think I’ll ever forget what it feels like to have newborn children.  You’re ecstatic and scared; enamored and overwhelmed—  it’s a tornado and a rainbow all at once! Fear not, Supermom; you are now an energy source for two and I’ve got the recipes that’ll help you pack your day with punch and keep energy levels high. Plus, you won’t have to trade precious moments that could be spent sleeping, chopping away in the kitchen.

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is the easiest healthy staple to any kitchen. The word “chia” actually comes from the Mayan word for “strength.” Strength is what you need!

Mix one-part chia seeds to four-parts nut milk of your choice (I love almond or macadamia) and let sit overnight. Top with berries in the AM for a superfood boost to start your day on the right foot.

Matcha Green Tea Latte

For the times when it seems all you want to do is go back to bed, enjoy this matcha green tea latte at breakfast.

Lentil and Herb Butter Cups

Not only is this recipe super simple to make, it’s an easy one to make, store and eat all week long.

Figs with Macadamia Nut Cheese

This is my go-to party appetizer but it’s also an incredible energy-boosting snack. Figs provide the magnesium, B-vitamins and fiber that we love for energy, while macadamia nuts provide Vitamin A, iron and protein. The dish as a whole provides that sweet and salty sweet spot that will keep you from reaching for junkier snacks.

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.

MH SummerEssentials Blog v1

Are you planning a vacation before the baby arrives for some you-time? We’ve done the packing for you so all you need to do is focus on a relaxing getaway. Here’s what to pack in your travel bag this summer.

The Maxi Dress: Maxi Dresses are a standout trend for the season and a mom-to-be essential for comfort and style! In case you missed it, we rounded up a few favorites here.

Printed Blouse: Prints are in this season and are a bold way to show off the bump. Pair a printed blouse with maternity jeans or crisp white bottoms.

Shorts:  Shorts are a versatile staple that can take you from day to night. Go classic with a cuffed denim pair or try a longer silhouette with a bermuda.

Tank Top: A basic tank will be your go-to and works great as a base layer or on its own. Try it in stripes for a casual day in the sun.

Heading to the beach? Don’t forget to pack a swimsuit!
