Are you jet-setting this holiday season? You won’t want to board that plane without these compression tights and socks by Preggers. They provide light gradient compression, which will help reduce and prevent swelling. The pressure is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top, allowing for optimal blood flow, which especially important 30,000 feet in the air. Wishing you safe and comfortable travels!
Good news – Belly Dance has got you covered to stay super stylish this winter. (P)leather is everywhere…gracing the front of leggings, accenting the shoulders of tops and sweaters and taking over the jacket scene, like this Denver Jacket from Slacks & Co ($200), which is great for your maternity and post maternity bod. Leggings are another easy way to embrace the trend – we’re big fans of the Leather Look Leggings by Seraphine ($85). We also can’t ignore the explosion of cashmere that happens every year around this time. Give the Maternal America Cashmere Dress ($218) a try to keep your baby bump feeling oh-so-soft and right on trend.
Turn up the heat as it gets chillier and chillier. The more the mercury drops, the more we’re craving some cozy colors in our lives. Try on this sassy NOM Ellie dress with a darling red-lipped clutch for size. Or keep it casual in our super-soft Michael Stars henley with a bold RGB red nail.
Check out what’s new for baby. Belly Dance moms love Chewbeads for their teething little ones. Their bright, modern design make them stylish and easy for mom to slip on while keeping their little one entertained. Who can resist soft and cuddly Jellycat animals? We melted when saw these adorable plush creatures. They make the perfect gift for your favorite baby.
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.
Although we can’t help but covet every piece of clothing we got in this Fall season here are some of the customer favorites, so far. A jean that will fit and flatter you throughout your pregnancy, a sweater for layering, a wear-to-everywhere dress, a cute tunic to wear with leggings or jeans and a wrap sweater in this seasons best color. What are some of your fall favorites?
Dress: Seraphine Audrey Zipper
The Seraphine Audrey Zipper Dress is one of our most favorite fall frocks! With its classic, flattering shape and gold details, the Audrey is as versatile as it is chic. For a day at the office, we’d wear it with a pair of trendy ankle boots, an over-sized leather tote, and a patterned scarf for a pop of color. Swap out your daytime accessories for a pair of black peep toe heels, bold gold jewelry, and a great nail color (RGB’s Cobalt really pops against a black dress!), and you’re ready for a night on the town!
Vibrant and lush, emerald is the color of the year for 2013. This fall, we’re especially inspired by all things green! Take a look at some of our favorites.
The Duchess of Cambridge is back on the style scene. When the new mum wore this gorgeous Seraphine Maternity dress for the first official portrait of her royal family, it sold out in under two hours! If you weren’t lucky enough to snag the Jolene Dress before the “Kate effect” took hold, fear not. You can create a similar look with these fabulous frocks!
Olian Kelly Wrap Dress - The empire waist and flowing skirt make this dress a feminine, flattering choice. Don’t be afraid to rock a bright, happy color like Kate!
Olian Long Sleeve Knot Dress – We love how the knot on this classic silhouette accentuates the empire line just like Kate’s dress does. This is the perfect dress for transitioning to fall.
NOM Molly Wrap Dress – Throughout her pregnancy, the Duchess loved a soft, feminine dress with polka dots or a sweet print. Get the best of both looks with this classic wrap dress in a cute heart and polka dot print.
If you’re like us, you’re looking forward to spending a few relaxing days away this coming Labor Day. We’re already putting together a packing list for our weekend getaway! Fab maxi dress and cute flat sandals? Check! Oversize tote bag that will fit all the travel necessities (including pregnancy-safe nail polish for mani touch-ups)? Check! Sweet, comfy nightgown and sleep mask? Check and check!!
When it’s 95 degrees in the shade, all we want to do is head to the beach! Right now, we are loving the cute, retro vibe of this polka dot maternity bikini by Prego. We’d pair it with a great cover up like Splendid’s Beachglass Tunic, and slip into Yosi Samra‘s super comfy flip flops. Of course, protection from the sun is key, so a good sunblock and extra-large floppy hat are must-haves. And who could resist a pre-beach mani/pedi with one of our favorite RGB nail polishes? Sand castles and cool waves, here we come!
The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and we’ve picked out some of our favorite red, white and blue items to help get you in a patriotic state of mind! Whether you’re headed to a backyard BBQ or plan to watch the fireworks at a swanky rooftop party, we’ve got you covered.
