West Coast Bumpstyle Round-up

THELIFESTYLEDIMG_9556I had an amazing trip to California last week visiting A Pea in the Pod stores in San Diego and Beverly Hills. I got to meet so many gorgeous moms-to-be and had so much fun helping them #stylethebump!

In San Diego, the duo behind the blog Style My Bump, Eryn and Tiffany, came by for some shopping. Tiffany is currently expecting her second, but both took home new pieces!  Check out their write-up.

Next stop was Beverly Hills! Stylist Catherine Sheppard of The Life Styled, who has the most enviable maternity style, is closing in on her due date so I helped her find the perfect pieces to fill her hospital bag.  Bachelorette alum, DeAnna Pappas Stagliano, who is expecting Baby No. 2, came by as well, picking up a fabulous skirt and jacket. A day of shopping isn’t complete without a sweet treat to refuel so we sipped on Belvoir Lemonade and Bottega Louie macarons!

STYLE SESSION // CALIFORNIA EDITION

Style Session- California Style Session- CaliforniaIt has been a busy few weeks for me with traveling for work, lots of fun events and new posts running on the blog! I was out in sunny California for not one, but two, separate photo shoots (exciting details on these coming soon.) While there, I booked some styling sessions during my visit! It was nice to get a break from the cold northeastern weather and soak in the California sun during the trip.

I also love getting to visit our associates and spend time in our stores! The team and I share such a passion for helping expecting women look and feel their best; it’s nice to collaborate, even for just a few hours. Plus, it’s great to see what’s trending in fashion in each part of the country. The Cali-girls are all about destructed denim!

I worked with clients ranging from 13 weeks pregnant to those late in their 3rd trimester. One of my clients, Flaminia, was looking for essential starter pieces that she could wear throughout her whole pregnancy. She went home with a great assortment of Secret Fit Belly® leggings, AG Maternity Jeans and a variety of A Pea in the Pod side-ruched tees.

It’s also fun to watch women find the perfect shower dress, which I helped another client do. With so many silhouettes and colors, I always ask about my clients’ preferences and start there. I love when they end up choosing something they didn’t expect, like a bright printed dress.

I can’t wait to get back to California for another visit, but check back in soon for an update on my next style session. And please reach out and email me at Olivia@destinationmaternity.com! I may be in your area to set up a time for your personal session too! -Olivia
