Summer Vacation Essentials For Mom-to-Be!

Vacation Essentials BLOG2I’m planning my yearly beach vacation to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey this week (I’ll be posting our trip later this summer)! I always look forward to spending time with my family and we pack in tons of fun activities, so pre-planning my wardrobe is a must! Beach outings, boardwalk games and a seafood date night means lots of outfit options but since I hate over-packing, I choose versatile pieces I can mix and match! Here’s my vacation picks for mom-to-be that are just that: beachy and chic with tons of style mileage for different occasions. Let me know what you think!

Memorial Day Getaway Essentials for Mom-To-Be

Memorial DayMemorial 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

Rachel Zoe’s Spring Picks for Mom-to-be

Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_1-608x742The exclusive Rachel Zoe Collection for A Pea in the Pod has finally arrived online and in stores! Following a fabulous launch party in West Hollywood and store events across the US celebrating the new collaboration, we sat down with Rachel to talk about the Spring line.

Rachel’s trademark bohemian style is woven throughout the collection, which balances timeless silhouettes with tailored classics. Excluding a polished glamour while remaining effortless and functional, the Spring collection includes carefree caftans and tunics and flowing dresses juxtaposed with structured jackets.Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_2-608x884Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_3-608x1216Rachel admits, “I lived in draped maxi dresses and structured jackets during my pregnancy. Whether you’re in your first or third trimester, these are two silhouettes you can mix and match into your wardrobe throughout your pregnancy.  Give your maxi a little daytime glamour and layer on the jewelry, add a pair of sunnies and opt for metallic sandals. When it comes to your favorite LBD, add an edge with a cool black biker jacket”.

Rachel’s iconic style truly comes through in this collection. Filled with must-have items and statement makers, we think you’ll love the line! -Olivia

Rachel Zoe Maternity Collection

Rachel Zoe for A Pea in the Pod Rachel Zoe for A Pea in the PodNow that we’ve officially announced our new line with Rachel Zoe, I am so excited to fill you in on what happened behind-the-scenes at our shoot at Smashbox Studios in LA back in January! I met the always glamorous Rachel (who did not disappoint in a classic black fur vest and 70’s flares!) and chatted with her about her first-ever maternity collection.Rachel Zoe for A Pea in the PodRachel’s outfit seemed especially fitting when she let us know that the ’70s were her inspiration in designing the maternity collection for A Pea in the Pod. The effortless chic and glamour that categorized the era is sure to resonate with moms-to-be like Rachel who have to do it all with not a lot of time.

My son Greyson is close in age to Rachel’s two children so we had a few stories about our lovable and energetic boys to share. As another working mom in the fashion industry, I am especially inspired by Rachel’s ability to balance her work and love of fashion with motherhood….plus did I mention she’s a blast to hang out with?Rachel Zoe for A Pea in the PodTake a look for yourself and watch the video and then head over to our site to sign up to be among the first to shop her collection, available this March. –Olivia
