Powerful Prints

Match the heat this summer with some equally hot prints that are sure to make sure your look is on fire. Bold, vibrant hues and stylish designs come together for the ultimate duo in these knock pieces. Currently, this summer is obsessed with chevrons, tribals, and florals ­— we just can’t get enough of them. With so many styles and prints, it’s easy to snatch up every one for a whole closet full of different ensembles for every occasion. Maternity dresses to turn heads, maternity tops to make them take a second glance, and maternity maxis that scream chic.

Can you believe this playful look is achieved with only a maternity tank top and maternity jeans? The secret to a quick, laid back, casually chic look like this isn’t actually a secret. It’s all in the standout print and popping hues. Of course, we’re not saying the free flowing and flattering cut isn’t important but those colors… Come on, how could you resist this candy-colored chevron a second longer?

If jeans are just too hot to consider, which this summer, we totally agree with. A light, breezy, and beautiful short maternity dress is definitely your go-to. Neon accents are our favorite accessory for a bold piece like this and with those brights weaved into the pattern, we knew we had something special. An all over tribal with a floral necklace gives you that edgy feminine look for day or night. And with this dress to be the piece that stands out, opt for neutral accessories to play up the print.

A longer, feminine look achieved with a maternity maxi dress in everyone’s favorite print. Flirty florals are a favorite all year long but combined with bright tones, this classic has transformed into the perfect summer essential. Although we love this floral, check out this dress in a variety of other bold prints that are equally as gorgeous.

Perfect for a casually feminine day-time look but easily transitioned into an effortlessly chic date night outfit. And who wouldn’t want a comfortable and stylish wear all day long?

With so many prints and brilliant hues, it’s easily to fill your closet with them all and have one for every day of summer.

What's In Your Summer Bag?

It is officially our favorite season of the year and with that comes longer days, warmer nights, and higher AC bills. Luckily, weather stays pretty constant in Southern California, most days steadying at a beautiful 70 degrees but this season has been a bit warmer. A blazing 92 degrees hit us recently, a way of Mother Nature telling us the summer season has finally come. Some can escape the heat by blasting the air and some can spend their day cooling off at the beach. While a group of us don’t actually go to the beach very often, sometimes once in a while, it’s nice to pack things up, load the kiddos in the car, and head out for a fun-filled day in the sand and surf.

 

We’ve mentioned perfect looks for the beach from maternity shorts and maternity tank tops to the ever so stylish maternity maxi skirt or maternity dress. With those looks laid out as effortlessly chic beach wear attire, we wanted to look at what’s inside that big bag of ours. Moms seem to carry the whole world in their purses, with things we would never have expected to. When you become a new mother, it’s like carrying double. It will literally feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders.

 

At the office, we spilled out our beach bag to check out some things we thought to be essentials for a day at the beach. Here’s what we are equipped with:

Transitioning Into Motherhood With Style

All transitions can be intimidating — graduation from high school, graduation from college, a new job, pregnancy, motherhood — and sometimes it can take awhile to adjust and get into the groove of things. One thing that you know you can control during these transitions is your style. While you change or make alterations to everything else in your life, your style is one thing that can stay constant through it all. At PinkBlush, we want to make sure that you don’t have to sacrifice this as you compromise with everything else. From one individual style to the next, we alter your favorite pre-pregnancy looks to make sure they accommodate your growing bump throughout the next nine months.

Unlike any other maternity wear, these styles can easily transition into motherhood because they don’t look like “maternity clothes.” A maternity top you can wear straight into nursing, a maternity maxi dress you can wear all the way until your child’s first birthday, and even a maternity jean with an elastic waistband for Thanksgiving dinner. Whether you are 8 weeks or 8 months, you don’t have to give up cute, stylish clothes in order to be comfortable. We want to give you the opportunity to do both.

Ashley from Three Under Three was able to transition in style with this gorgeous draped maternity maxi dress (also a perfect nursing dress) . New moms can appreciate this beauty with its deep v-neck and how free flowing and figure flattering it is. With so many prints, it’s hard not to buy them all so everyday is maxi madness.

Simple Ways to Make Mornings Easier

Mornings are hard enough as it is and Monday mornings? Forget about it. If you tell us you have a way to shorten our getting ready time to only fifteen minutes we’ll try anything. As long as it keeps us in bed a little longer.

One tip that is tried and true is putting your outfit together the night before. Instead of dragging everything out of your closet and turning your room into a tornado’s destruction path, carefully lay out your picks before you go to bed. We can’t even begin to describe how much this helps. It may take some getting used to but this is the number one time saver. When you get this down, everything else is easy. A maternity jean and maternity top are the perfect go to look for an everyday casual look while maternity pants and a maternity blouse are great for a day at work. Dress up any of these looks with a statement necklace and that’s all it takes. Don’t forget your maternity cardigan for your chilly office.

Take your shower the night before. Seriously the best idea and if you put your wet hair in braids, curlers or a ballerina bun, you wake up with your hair already done! It’s a win win. When you wake up, all you have to do is a couple touch-ups if that’s even necessary, put in some texturing spray, and you are set.

For everyday makeup, all you really need is a bit of power, mascara, and lipstick/gloss. Control your shine throughout the day with blotting wipes or a travel powder compact. For the midday boot, a retouch on your lips will do the trick. It’s amazing what a bold lip color will do. You can go from day to night so easily.

Nursing In Style

Congratulations! You are now a proud mother of the cutest baby on earth! Now, he or she is crying and hungry. You need something that you can wear that will pull down in no time, making the nursing time a little easier for you and your baby. Despite what some may say, cute nursing clothes do exist.  From nursing tops to nursing dresses, PinkBlush can offer the stylish new mother something to look amazing in.

Nursing dresses are perfect for any occasion and can be simply dressed up in seconds for a dressier event. For every day, a casual nursing dress gives you a laid back, comfortable piece to relax in.

A little more structured, a maternity jean and nursing top is still perfect for after your baby is born. The elastic waistband will keep you comfortable while the draped v-neckline makes the nursing time simple.

Even a strapless maternity dress or maternity top can be great for this time because all you have to do is slightly pull down the elastic top.

A Day At The Park

Summer vacation from school is approaching and one unplugged way to have fun with your kids is a family trip to the local park. A little fresh air and adventure will do the whole family good and with this beautiful weather we are having, why not take advantage of it? Make an entire day of it by packing a picnic basket full of your favorite snacks and sandwiches.

We love how Lisa from Beautiful Ordinary Days styled her casual maternity wear for a nice day out in the sun with her family.

A basic maternity jean and maternity top is just right so you can be comfortable all day long. There’s nothing worse than a hot and heavy jean sticking to you on a hot summer day or a thick top, making it impossible to escape the sun’s rays.

You can’t go wrong with a 3/4 sleeve maternity top this transition season but as the months go on and the season changes to summer, the best way to beat the heat is with a layering combination of a maternity tank top and maternity cardigan. That way, you can keep cool during the peak of the day and as the sun sets of breeze gets cooler, a light cardigan can give you cover.

Backyard Barbeque

With the arrival of summer, we know it’s time to dust off the BBQ. Almost every weekend is filled with family, good friends, and good food. While you celebrate the warm season, know that comfortable, stylish maternity clothes are not as hard to find as you think. Adjust your summer wardrobe with a few maternity essentials that will have you feeling amazing all day long.

We all know comfort is the most important thing when looking for maternity clothes. Especially during this hot summer, we want something breezy, laidback, and stylish so we can look and feel cool no matter the occasion. Lightweight chiffons and flowy maternity maxi skirts are perfect for outdoor gatherings as they catch the subtle breeze perfectly.

Adding a fun, family game to your BBQ like cornhole or bocce ball can boost the competitive spirit and get everyone involved in friendly competition. Make things interesting by adding a small prize for the winning team. For this, a basic maternity jean and maternity top are perfect to give you that comfortable, casual look, also making it easy to move around so you too can get in on the fun.

As the sun sets, complete your BBQ day with a family movie. A fun way to show your favorite movie this summer while still enjoying the fresh air on a warm summer night is to project the movie onto the wall of your home in the backyard. Bring out some blankets and a warm maternity cardigan as the night cools down.

If you’re like us and all you want to do is relax and enjoy the warm sun, you can always opt for a casual maternity maxi dress which gives you a feminine look, and always comfortable feel. We especially love how convenient a maternity dress is to slip on and off, making the getting ready process quick and simple. A no fuss ensemble for a no fuss, fun day out with the family.

Comfortably Cool

During the summertime, as the weather heats up, the wardrobe should cool down. Simple pieces that will keep you comfortable all day while still looking stylish are not as hard to find as you think. Now, you don’t sacrifice or settle when it comes to your comfort this season but just opt for lightweight, pretty pieces that you can wear every day. What’s even better are cute that these maternity clothes can be worn even after the baby is born! We love versatile pieces like this that more than just a three month wear. It not only saves our wallet, but our time too!

This solid maternity top features a subtle printed sleeve, adding just the right amount of textured flair to pull your simple look together. Lindsay from Lindsay Dee looks effortlessly cool in her maternity top and maternity leggings for a nice, relaxing day in.
