Most Craved Monday

maternity sweaters

Breathing a fresh breathe of air into the season’s cold temps, these maternity sweaters are hitting all of the high notes. From a fabulous chevron stripe in classic color combinations, to the beloved high-low hem and thick, flattering stripes with a bump-shaping tie, they are both waiting for your favorite skinny jeans and leggings.

Inspiration Behind the Design: Our Fabulous Holiday Collection!

sketchesThis season, our Holiday Collection is a mix of luxe styles that are high on drama. From jewels to beading to lustrous fabrics rendered in sexy silhouettes primed to show off your shape, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team drew on all things glam for this season’s collection:

“For the holiday season, we focused on the Baroque period, a time known for exquisite detail and ornamentation. Through the use of lace, shine and luxurious fabrics in black, gold and a beautiful Bordeaux red, each style creates a perfect ensemble for holiday parties and events.”

Key pieces include a cozy cable knit maternity sweater in shimmering black lurex; fashion’s current “it” look, faux leather trim maternity leggings; and a party-perfect jersey knit embellished maternity dress.

The Look for Less: Polka Dots

The chic color combination of black and white never goes out of style. Bring polka dots into the mix and you’ve got instant sophistication.

We love the look of this Ron Herman cashmere sweater. Soft and luxurious, it’s a piece that can take you from work to play in seconds flat. Paired with super skinny J Brand black jeans, the look is put-together and polished.

Get the look for less with our ¾ sleeve side ruched maternity sweater. The flattering side ruching helps to accentuate your bump while the dot print adds a hint of playfulness. Pair this sweater with our Secret Fit Belly® ponte super soft skinny leg maternity pants for an outfit that’s sleek, incredibly comfortable and under $70!

Finally, for some extra bits and pieces of versatility, add a strand of pearls and a pair of patent heels to dress it up, or throw on a blazer and pair of brightly colored flats for a more understated approach.

Epitomizing the savory flavors of fall, we can’t wait to dip a chip into Roasted Sweet Potato and Toasted Sage Dip.

 Call it the perfect thing to wear to just about, well, anything, this Long Sleeve Sash Belt Maternity Tunic is sure to brighten up a chilly day.

 Chic and understated with a touch of glam, a ponytail is our idea of weekending; style your own in five ways not meant for the gym.

 A whimsical touch to your little one’s nursery, this DIY “Up Up and Away!” mobile is one of the cutest we’ve seen.

Color Crush: Black, Brown & Ivory

A canvas of dark and light neutrals sets a dramatic tone, be it a cozy reading nook or a cozy sweater jacket. Stay warm and look chic in this striped chunky knit by LINE, which beautifully combines black, brown and ivory hues.

Four Things We Love // Fall 2013 Edit

Weekends are all about kicking back and taking a much needed breather. Whether you relax by running around town, meeting up with friends or simply curling up on the couch with a good book, hot drink and a comforting meal, we hope you enjoy every minute of it.

Breakfast in bed never tasted so good thanks to Oatmeal Pancakes with Maple-Glazed Roasted Apples.

There may not be a more fall-perfect maternity sweater – we love the cut, the color, the whole thing.

Put away that flat iron; a messy-chic low bun is just what the weekend calls for.

We’re reading the inspiring book, Words That Matter, because if Oprah tells you it’s a must-read, it is.
