Staying Stylish while Pregnant

August 24, 2016

For the next couple of posts, I’ll be teaming up with A Pea in the Pod to talk about staying stylish while pregnant. I am pumped. When my mom and I went to Chicago, A Pea in the Pod was one of our first stops. I seriously had the best shopping experience. I got to know several of the ladies working in the store who made me feel so comfortable and excited about maternity fashion. They went out of their way to be helpful. Prior to going in the store, I was feeling frumpy and just pudgy as my belly hadn’t popped much. They have a fake belly you can try on, and it really helped me see how clothes would fit in the future. It got me excited!

I left Chicago with so many great maternity pieces and fun memories with my mom to boot. You’ve seen several of my items on the blog already with more to come as the season progresses. All that to say, when I got home, I reached out to the brand to see about a possible blog collaboration. I knew I would love representing them after my experience. I was thrilled to connect, and now, here we are today. I’m styling their floral blouse with the cutest kick flares (exact non-maternity style linked below) and draped jacket. I mentioned this on Monday when I wore my kick flares, but it’s so wonderful having fashion forward pieces to wear while pregnant. It makes me still feel like me. A Pea in the Pod is definitely my go-to for those items.

I have been previewing some fall looks on the blog lately despite the warmer temps remaining. I hope it’s giving you some inspiration like it has been me. Clearly I am ready! Honestly part of it is that I don’t want to spend money on maternity items that I won’t wear long, so most of what I have been buying are items that will last me through the rest of my pregnancy. I also know these are maternity looks. The truth is kick flares, a floral top, and boots are a great combo in maternity and non-maternity items alike. I will always link exact non-maternity items when possible.

    I saw Pea in the pod when shopping in LA, I think that back then they had some special shopping event with Rachel Zoe, or something like that. Anyway, congrats on teaming up with them! It’s so important for an expecting mommy to feel comfortable but still feminine and stylish during the whole pregnancy and it’s always a blessing when you have some shops which sell great and quality items like that. 🙂
