So you’ve got a bun in the oven and it’s time to look for some pretty pregnancy fashion, you’ve come to the right place. My Maternity Monday is all about finding the best maternity fashion for you to style that beautiful bump. A lot of women feel lost when it comes to dressing for your ever growing mid section. The key is to look for pretty pregnancy fashion that’s both comfortable yet stylish. Nothing over the top or fussy, but still within the aesthetic you kept to when you weren’t expecting. Finding pretty pregnancy fashion is a lot easier than it used to be because designer have decided to cater to the market with, not only great style but also affordable prices (because who wants to spend the big money on things that you will only wear for a limited time). So check out my favorite pretty pregnancy fashion to get you through these nine months in elegance and ease.
Today I am wearing what I call summer white – a simple chiffon blouse with a blazer both in a shade of white that’s lighter than cream and my husband made the comment that he thought I looked beautiful in white. Well, that was enough of a reason for me to turn my attention to the official non color of summer. With August fast approaching its time to get in all that gorgeous summer white while you can! I personally am also a fan of winter white, so fear not – this is not a short term investment but people just tend to wear it more during the warmer months… Gorgeous summer white feels fresh and clean and illuminates your skin, all while keeping you cool in the heat. Yes, we may need to clean it some more so invest in some oxiclean and rest in the fact that at least it’s not a color that can fade… So check out my favorite summer white pieces and soak in the sun (but not too much heat) while the summer is still in full force!
Pregnancy doesn’t mean the end of style, it just means a hunt for the best maternity clothes that make you feel chic and comfortable. Dont try squeezing into you normal clothes (the ones without stretch anyway) – that always looks way to constrictive and tragic… Just embrace your belly evolution and I can help you find some of the best maternity style on the market. Retailers these days understand that expecting a baby doesn’t mean your stop expecting great fashion and so they’re are so many incredible, trend driven options available. In fact, maybe this is the time to experiment with trends more since they generally only last about 9 months and you’ll only be pregnant for that amount of time… Do NOT go spending big money on this stuff but DO go for things you like and can feel like yourself in. Check out the best maternity options for all you super stylish expectant mom’s out there who want to look and feel great throughout pregnancy (and beyond).
Eh, it’s summer time, some off the shoulder action is the perfect amount of skin to look and feel sexy without feeling over exposed. Everything from casual day blouses to a sexy dress for a night out on the town looks better with a bit of a bare shoulder. Not everyone feels comfortable being overtly sexy with exposing cleavage or the popular mid riff so opting for something that’s off the shoulder gives just the right amount of skin without giving it all away. This is the perfect summer look for a great bbq with friends, that August vacation you have planned or even just relaxing at the park – its super sexy with an air of relaxation. Check out my favorite off the shoulder looks that you can embrace with confidence and style while the hot weather is still with us!
I’m a huge fan of fun patterns and 60s prints are always a fun one to experiment with. The 60s were an era of exploration, experimentation, love and free spirit so these are the pop prints our mom’s wore and that we have, probably, been drawn to most of our lives. There are definitely times when 60s prints are more on trend than others but, quite frankly, they never really go away. Pucci, after all, has built an empire on the retro style. The key to not looking like you’re not dressing up for a themed costume day is to translate these 60s prints in a more modern way. Perhaps it’s in the cut or silhouette or the way it’s paired but the best rule of thumb is if you’re going to wear something 60s don’t go head to toe with the theme. Check out my favorite 60s print style and have fun with your fashion (and look fab too).

The thought of summer knits may seem counter intuitive but what better way to buy things now that you can layer and wear later too!

Ladies, I am not athletic type hiking the canyons and hitting the gym but I don’t mind a bit of sporty chic every now and then. Sportswear has infiltrated the land of ready to wear in recent years and the look has an urban edge making it more wearable than traditional workout wear. Thanks largely to designer Alexander Wang sporty chic has been in vogue for some time and showing no signs of abating. What this means for us is that we get the comfort and ease of being in our sweats while remaining stylish. True sporty chic is all in the details – your traditional sweatshirt in luxe fabrics like silk or cashmere, and super cool techno elements that give your look a sporty chic edge. This is one of those great trends that allow us, as fashion forward mothers, to keep up with our little ones without sacrificing great style. Check out some of my favorite interpretations of the sporty chic movement and get ready for the perfect merge of form and function!
