Oh, how we love stripes in the summer! They just make us feel all nautical inside! From dresses to swimsuits to accessories, these are some of our favorite stripey pieces.
We could rock this Kristin Cavallari look every day. It’s chic and casual–and super easy to replicate. Start with our NOM Hailey Dress and add a structured denim blazer, classic handbag, and, for a little punch of color, these comfy Yosi Samra Neon Patent Flip Flops. p.s. The Hailey Dress also looks great all dressed up for a night on the town, too!
This Maternal America Halter Tie Dress is a Belly Dance favorite. The perfect Little Red Dress, it goes from day to night with just a simple swap of your accessories! For a lunch date or a day of shopping, we’d pair it with these cute Oxfords and a contrasting handbag. To take this dress out to dinner we love a pair of classic black pumps and an eye-catching clutch.

This trend is here to stay. No complaining here! Who doesn’t love mixing and matching? Color blocking is a great way to add spice up your outfit. You can wear it head-to-toe or separately. This NOM Orange Gigi Maxi Dress is an easy way to complete this trend. Its light weight fabric makes it great to wear all summer long, every day or to a special occasion. Try the NOM Black Liz Colorblock Tunic with a pair of jeans or shorts and flats for a cute summer outfit. For something a tad bit more formal try the Jules & Jim Color Combo Dress.
“Can you really prevent stretch marks?”
We’ve all been there. Pregnant and terrified of that moment the first stretch mark will appear, we wonder if we should just buy the entire shelf lined with the lotions and crèmes that promise to keep them at bay.
The truth is, while there’s no magic lotion that can guarantee you won’t ever see a stretch mark during your pregnancy (they’re hereditary, after all, and whether you get them depends on a whole host of factors), using a stretch mark cream or oil does have benefits. Keeping your belly ultra-moisturized from the beginning of your pregnancy helps skin stay pliant and can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks. It can also reduce itching caused by ever-stretching skin.
Finding products that are safe and effective is key. Here are some of our favorites:
A Belly Dance best-seller, Belli’s Elasticity Belly Oil is packed with Vitamin E, Gotu Kola extract, and cocoa butter to hydrate your belly and decrease the risk and severity of stretch marks. Lavender and sweet almond oil calm the senses and nourish and moisturize the skin.
We love Matter Company’s holistic approach to skincare, and many of their ingredients are certified organic. This soothing balm is made up of six essential oils—including shea butter, lavender, and evening primrose—rich in Vitamin E, which promote skin elasticity and help stop itching.
Loaded with omega rich oils, essential fatty acids, shea, and jojoba, Basq’s buttery stretch mark cream can help heal existing stretch marks while preventing new ones from forming.
This light, fresh butter is full of cocoa and shea butter and aloe vera to soothe itching. Bonus: many of the ingredients are organic!
Check out our in house brand NOM. Pregnant Fashionista recently did a review of our NOM Mabel Tunic and described it as “the perfect basic piece for all of the colorful skinny maternity jeans and shorts out there this season.” We couldn’t agree more. Check out the full post here.

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.)
Super cute mom-to-be Jenna Dewan-Tatum loves her maternity jeans! Score her laid back style with these Paige Union Jimmy Jimmy Skinny Jeans – the perfect “boyfriend skinny” – and our slouchy NOM Hope Sweater in coral. We love this outfit paired with sleek flat sandals, an oversized bag, and a patterned Fedora!
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…
Orange you glad summer is around the corner? We are too! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite orange things around the store. For just a pop of color wear the RGB Monarch Nail Color. Make a statement in the Jill Maxi Dress from Lilac and for a great basic try the Nom Orange Ellie Burnout Tank.
