Last week I had the pleasure of attending a Motherhood Maternity/Pea In A Pod 2011 Spring Preview event. Since I am currently on the look out for great maternity clothes that make my belly look less big, I was really excited to see what these brands had to offer. I have never been shy in saying that I am not always happy with the maternity clothes out there, but I can honestly admit that the new line for both of these lines are AMAZING! I think that they offer great clothes at all different price points. Even the Motherhood line, which I normally am not always pleased with, had tons of great new things to show. I honestly could’ve bought every piece that they showed me. Luckily for my husband there were only samples and I couldn’t.
Spring 2011 Motherhood Maternity Collection
The theme of the Spring Motherhood line is mixing girly with menswear, destructed with refined, and vintage with modern. Here are some of my favorites!
I was amazed when I saw that they were showing sequins for pregnant women, but when I thought more about it I thought…why not?? Pregnant women deserve to wear seasonal trends right? That’s why I loved this outfit.
A Camo print sequin tunic tank ($29.98) with an army green skinny cargo pant (39.98).
A red cascade cardigan sweater ($34.98) over blue multi-print charmeuse tunic top (29.98), with medium wash skinny jeans ($29.98). This outfit is perfect for spring and all the pieces could even be worn into the summer!
This dress just screams baby shower to me! It’s a blue watercolor one shoulder dress ($34.98)
I found all of the material on all of these outfits to be of great quality, and I loved the prices even more. If other women are like me, they don’t want to be spending a fortune on maternity clothes.
Spring 2011 A Pea in the Pod Collection
The collection this Spring is all about romantic, ethereal designs. Embracing the boudoir, the collection offers washed silk tops and dreamy knits in cosmetic pink, dusty lilac and heather oatmeal and grey. Here are a few of my favorites!
I am very pro “embracing the bump” and this snake skin print drape neck† dress ($89) does just that.
This outfit is just me! Oatmeal linen tank with chiffon ruffles ($69). Oatmeal linen cascade cardigan ($79). Rolled cuff camo short ($59).† Last summer I was looking for shorter shorts, when all I could find were longer ones. I have little legs so I thought if I was going to have a round belly at least I could show off my legs. These would’ve been the perfect shorts for me!
The Motherhood Maternity items will be available at www.motherhood.com, the A Pea in the Pod items will be available at www.apeainthepod.com, and everything will be available at www.destinationmaternity.com. I was told they will be available come January, so get ready!
