April showers may bring May flowers, but March brings SPRING! So, we want to celebrate the start of the new season with maternity dresses that are not only shower ready, but are perfect for your gender reveal (check out those blue and pink prints), are eggcelent for Easter (yes, we went there) and meet the dress code for that upcoming wedding.
We want to highlight the textured lace overlay of the first maternity dress, which is just blossoming with pink and blue buds. We love the above-the-bump belt, which makes for a form-flattering silhouette. If flowers are just not your scene [gasp!], we have this beauty in a gorgeous shade of green too.
The second maternity dress is garden party perfection. This maternity maxi has a surplice neckline, giving a wrap-top effect, plus an empire waistline, which our pregnant customers rely on time and time again for comfort, fit and its versatility to last way past pregnancy. Super slinky and soft material is why we love it too. To shop all the floral fashion, click here. Welcome to spring!

Gender reveal parties are becoming as big or bigger than baby showers, without the pressure, but with all the excitement. There are so many ways to announce whether or not baby is going to be a boy or girl and we are the place to come for that inspiration. Let us be the source of all things gender reveal. We’ve been behind the scenes meeting with the best of the best in party planning, racking our collective brains to come up with the cutest themes and are almost ready to roll out the red carpet on this Gender Reveal initiative.
With help from the cutest maternity tees featuring “It’s a Boy!” and “It’s a Girl!” graphics, moustache decals, bows and more, plus the Gender Reveal Collection of blue with pink tops and dresses (they have ribbons that reveal), your outfit is already made. We want to be your one stop shop for planning, so we also are selling decorations, favors and supplies for Motherhood, as well as A Pea in the Pod. Make sure you check out our sister blog at 40weeksofchic.com for even more ideas!
Last, but not least, we are fully prepared with professional perspectives. First we will meet with Laura Himmelein, owner of Party Cake, Party Cake in Maplewood, New Jersey. So keep your eyes open for the Gender Reveal section on our blogs, as well as posts featuring concepts and how to execute them. Whether you are the one doing the revealing or it’s you who will be surprised, we are just so excited to deliver this to you. Let the reveals begin!

The dark days of winter give east coasters major summer envy, while the west coasters reach for the beach and the middle of the country craves the coastal breeze. If you can’t set sail on the sea, test the waters with these mid-winter nods to nautical!
Maternity clothing already breaks bounds when it comes to flattering your shape, because most styles are made to accentuate the bump. So remember when shopping, stripes are slimming. We repeat: stripes are slimming. So many mamas shy away from the stripe, especially horizontal ones, but this sweater is lightweight, still warm enough for the chill in the air, and cute as a button — literally, because it is ribbed with buttons.
In the warmer months we preach the LWD, aka the Little White Dress, as the fresher take on the LBD. What about in the cooler months? Shake it up with a new LBD — Little Blue Dress. The deep tone of navy is of course flattering, much in the way black is; it’s still sophisticated, yet playful and versatile for work to weekend wear. This maternity dress features pretty pleats and a flowing fit.
To stay in the blue family, we top off our list, well… with a top. Navy is a neutral that plays well with others blues, so this flutter sleeve maternity blouse looks amazing with jeans, as well as more office-ready pants. Not into ruffles? Don’t feel blue… (sorry for the pun!) we have more navy maternity blouses you’ll love.
In a boat, on land, at work- these are the new waves of nautical maternity looks.
