With temperatures dropping outside and your body heating-up from that little bun you are growing, we find it’s best to dress in layers. You may find yourself freezing one minute and tearing off your sweater the next. The good news? Fall layering is fun and stylish. Add a cardigan over your favorite tee or try a trendier look with a vest or jumper.

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and if you’re wondering what to get the new mom or mom-to-be in your life, you’re in luck! Here’s a roundup of our favorite Mother’s Day gifts! (Pssssst…don’t forget – you can always stop by one of our NYC or Chicago boutiques, and our personal shoppers will help you find the perfect gift.)
Check out Daily Candy’s post – Avoid A Pregnant Pause: 15 Things You Should Tell Your Pregnant Friends, Over and Over. We love their quick-witted writing and that they featured us twice in the post. Comfortable and stylish Yosi Samra flats were featured on one page and non-toxic RGB nail polish on the other.
Fit Pregnancy rated the Paige Maternity Union Laurel Canyon Jean as the best fit for all body types in their Jean Therapy blog post. We couldn’t agree more. The leg is perfectly flared and the pocket panels are comfortable yet look like your non-maternity jeans. This isn’t our first time being recognized for our denim collection. Parents.com featured us twice in their blog post: Best Maternity Jeans. Check out our stellar denim collection here.
Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds so even if your bun is still in the oven you deserve pampering and pretty things. So why not treat yourself to a special Mother’s Day outfit. For a sophisticated and less formal look we love the J Brand Mama J Blanc Jean paired with the Debbi O Lara Top and a pair of wedges. For someone with swanky plans the Olian Cary Dress is as elegant as it is effortless. And as always a Rachel Pally dress, especially the Print Long Sleeveless Dress, is peachy and perfect for any occasion. Feel the love this mother’s day.
Rachel Pally dresses are a huge hit among celebrity moms and moms-to-be, and it’s easy to see why! They’re impossibly chic, super comfortable, and easy to wear both during and after pregnancy (pssst…they’re non-maternity!). We are loving this blue and white strapless Loveboat Dress and this gorgeous floral Print Long Sleeveless Dress for spring and summer. Can’t you just picture yourself dressed in one of these beauties while relaxing at an outdoor cafe and sipping a (virgin) cocktail? Ahhhh…
We know ladies can run with the boys when it come March Madness, but they can do it in a dress, a maxi dress even! Check out our magnificent maxis for spring! The perfect thing to wear while munching nachos and winning the office pool. Which maxi is your champion this season?
This week, we’re grooving on these bright and cheery dresses by Ella Moss and Fragile! They’re the perfect frocks for the season of fresh flowers and for lunches at sidewalk cafes. If your style is less flower power more boho chic, try brightening up a simple, solid-color dress or jeans and a tee with a patterned scarf, fun earrings, or this Gypsy05 Red Goji Lohri Bag
Congrats to Beverley Mitchell on her pregnancy! She looks glowing in this picture from her baby shower. We love how she paired a bright dress with a contrasting bright necklace. It has inspired us to pair our Debbi O Lace Dress with a chunky turquoise necklace for the perfect shower look. Keep the shoes and nails neutral and you will have a polished look from head to toe.
Mom to be in the spotlight, Kim Kardashian, is photographed nearly daily in her workout gear. Keeping up with Kim might be quite a challenge, but studies show even small amounts of low impact exercise can be extremely beneficial during pregnancy. The American Pregancy Association recommends keeping your heart rate under 140 beats per minute and avoid overheating, especially in your first trimester. Don’t be afraid to hit the ground running!
Spring is almost here! We are getting fresh styles in daily. Asymmetric hems and geometric cutouts are among our favorite trends this season. Plus we can’t resist the nautical color schemes paired with oh-so cute prints, like the storks on the the Maternal America Cutout Yoke Dress.
