E! News host, fashion taste-maker and mom-to-be Orly Shani has some seriously enviable style! If you follow her on Instagram, you may have seen her wearing A Pea in the Pod. She styles some of the hottest trends to perfection, like plaid with A Gold E destructed maternity jeans, and a bohemian BCBG maternity maxi with a side braid. I also love the way she gives a flared Theory dress a bit of edge with chunky heels! She also nails casual chic with a sporty tee and AG skinny’s. -Olivia

A dark ankle jean paired with a simple maternity tank or maternity maxi like this Rachel Zoe bandana-print dress can both be styled to perfection for a Labor Day BBQ or party! For either look, just layer on gold accessories, a tortoise shade and a pop of deep red for a touch of Americana. Even with summer coming to a close, navy, reds and metallic touches work well any season, so you’ll get mileage out of these pieces moving into fall.
How will you be styling your bump for the unofficial last weekend of summer? -Olivia

The last few months of pregnancy can be the most exciting AND the most challenging. However, dressing in your third-trimester doesn’t have to be a struggle! I recently had a style session with Jill and Kristen, who are both now in the last stage of their pregnancies and who you’ll recognize from We’re Expecting Too and last month’s Gender Reveal post. I was excited to help the girls choose some new pieces and share some styling tips for dressing in the last trimester. Check out the looks we chose and get some style inspo!
I chose these two looks first because the silhouettes are simple, flattering and comfortable- all essential in the third-trimester! This A-line Rachel Zoe dress that Jill is wearing skims the body and is lightweight and breezy, perfect for this time of year. For Kristen, a maternity tunic paired with a denim legging is polished but uber comfy, too, since both pieces are stretchy and breathable.
Finding an outfit with a slight cinched-in waist creates a nice shape, especially with a bump. We opted for this Jessica Simpson maternity top with a drawstring tie to give Jill added definition. This trick works throughout your whole pregnancy, but even more so toward the end, when the bump is at its biggest!
A peasant top and maternity jean short are perfect for summer, as well as when you are further along. Look for a short with a little spandex and a Secret Fit Belly®, like this cut-off version, so it’s soft on your tender belly. A maxi dress, like the one Kristen is wearing by Baily 44, is another essential summer piece that gives you a complete, yet comfortable look and feel.
A breezy blouse and kimono kaftan are also must-haves in my book once your bump has popped! I opted for this airy Sjobeck blouse paired with cropped maternity AG jean for Jill and kimono kaftan, maternity top and short for Kristen. These work so well, since again it’s about style AND comfort. Keep the silhouette short or slim on the bottom when wearing a flowy top.
Lastly, accessorizing is an easy and simplistic way to accentuate a maternity look. Try a hat, scarf, cross-body bag, necklaces and stacked bracelets to complete your outfit. These additions help speak to your own signature style.

Floral, lace and pretty pastel colors are key trends for summer! When incorporating them into your look, the trick is balancing the ultra-feminine pieces and colors with edgier accessories. For example, pairing this A Pea in the Pod floral maternity dress with a clutch featuring sleek hardware or layering in metallic jewelry. That fresh combination keeps the trend modern, without being too girly. While perfect for a summer soiree, these pretty pieces can find multiple uses and complement the rest of your maternity wardrobe. Looking for a fun way to embrace the trend and get together with friends? Throw a glam garden party and you’ll already know what to wear! Happy styling! –Olivia

I’m not your typical matchy-matchy mama, but I do love to show my holiday spirt by dressing for a festive weekend. I’m seeing star motifs everywhere this summer and since they are a chic nod to Independence Day, I think they are completely apropos. We usually watch fireworks on the 4th in Philadelphia or at the Jersey shore after attending a BBQ or two, so it’s easy for me to work in some stars and stripes. Here’s a little outfit inspo for your own holiday weekend, including a look for your mini! What are your plans for the 4th? -Olivia

White is having a major fashion moment this summer. White is classic yet modern, whether a sleek silhouette or added as an accessory. A white maternity dress and jean are essentials for the season and both are versatile enough to be styled up or down. I also love clean white accessories to freshen up a summer look. Mixing white and blue denim staples you already have in your closet such as a short, boyfriend jean or jacket is also a summer must. Happy styling! -Olivia

Memorial Day means a long weekend filled with family, fun, and food! This year, my husband and I decided on taking a few day trips; we will be checking out the Frida Khalo: Art, Garden, Life Exhibit at The New York Botanical Garden and then heading to Margate, NJ for a relaxing beach day. There will definitely be a requisite BBQ (or two!) in between. Whether you are getting out of town, heading off to the beach or planning to lounge pool side, it’s important to look great AND feel comfortable. With just a few maternity pieces like a caftan maxi, boyfriend jean and tankini, you can have a holiday weekend wardrobe that is versatile and totally on trend. Don’t forget the suncreen! -Olivia

The free-spirited style of the ‘70s has made a comeback and is even better with a bump! Tie-dye prints, maxi dresses, the peasant blouse, floppy hats and fringe are just some of the latest trends to love this summer. This sunset-hued maxi from A Pea in the Pod, paired with antique gold accessories, a fringe bag, wide brim hat and round sunnies, nails the bohemian look. Opt for a destructed vintage jean with a peasant blouse for another fabulous circa-‘70s summer look. -Olivia
