Trend Alert // Bohemian Bumpstyle

TrendAlert-BohemianThe 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

Chic This Week // The Must-Have Maxi + How to Wear It

6FGHSGFDHACSWith summer almost here, a wardrobe that keeps you cool and comfortable is a must, especially if you are expecting! The one item I tell every mom-to-be to invest in if they are expecting during the warmer months is a maxi! An instant outfit, a maxi is versatile enough to be worn throughout your whole pregnancy. This version from Isabella Oliver is one of my favorites. The simple knit print and side-ruching feature makes this dress extremely flattering. For an effortless and on trend weekend look, I suggest pairing a maxi with a thong sandal, panama hat and cuff. Dress things up for an evening out with a wedge, statement necklace and jacket. Happy styling -Olivia

L by JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT to Launch this Spring

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Not only is Jennifer Love Hewitt an actress and mother-to-be, she is now adding the title of designer to the list! With an expected launch for spring 2014 and in collaboration with A Pea in the Pod®, JLH has created an exclusive capsule collection entitled, L by JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT!

“Like other moms-to-be, I had to dress for my new figure but I hoped that wouldn’t mean sacrificing my personal style,” said Jennifer. To have the opportunity to bring my own perspective to such an established brand and to collaborate on a collection that other moms-to-be can wear and feel great in has made this time in my life even more special.”

The 15-piece collection will include comfy-chic separates in a soft color palette to be worn while pregnant and beyond including flowing maxi dresses, dressed-up leggings, casual and soft tees and a French terry jacket that is perfect for layering.

We are thrilled to welcome JLH into our family and cannot wait to purchase her easy-to-wear maternity styles!
