Mad About Maxis

Do you ever have one of those mornings where no matter what you try on, it’s just not working? The room goes from clean to looking like a tornado came through it in seconds. Well with the change in season comes a change in trends. They change faster than a blink of an eye. Luckily, there is one style that moves with the tides of fashion and is our constant savior on days like those. The maternity maxi skirt and maternity maxi dress are our best friends, especially as days grow warmer and longer and the last thing we want is a hot and heavy jean. Versatile enough to dress up or down, this effortless trend will help you survive your pregnancy with comfort and grace.

Our love for everything maxi is never ending and always growing. With the introduction of bold prints, we can mix and match graphics and solid maternity tops for a knockout look with no effort. Maternity maxi skirts with a vibrant hue and intricate design give you a freedom to express your style personality in a comfortable and simple way which we love.

When it comes to solid, you can literally never go wrong. Solid maternity maxi dresses are perfect for any occasion and instantly can be dressed up with a statement necklace or down with a sandal and lightweight maternity cardigan. From feminine flirty to having an edgy flair, you can now dress to your mood with only a couple pieces.

The best part about these breezy styles is that they work not only for your pregnancy, stretching to accommodate your growing bump, but also snap back to fit after pregnancy. If we can save and have something to last us through every season and every one of life’s transitions, why not?!

We’d love to hear how you rock your maxi this summer! #prettyinpinkblush and show off your unique maxi style!

Our Favorite Date Night Looks

Life is busy enough as it is, and with a new baby on the way, you know that soon enough, there will be even less free time for you and your significant other to enjoy a night out. So go ahead and call your babysitter, get dressed up, and have some fun. But, while you are deciding where you want to go, switch it up by trying this fun and spontaneous new way. When we first read about the Penny Date, we had so many questions: does it include freeways or highways? What if we are in a residential area? What if we end up in the middle of nowhere? Luckily, when gave it a try, we didn’t run into any problems but if you and your spouse do, you can alter the rules a bit.

  1. Find a coin or any object that has two sides.
  2. Pink a number (it can be as low or high as you want it to be. The higher the number, the further you drive.)
  3. Decide which end (heads or tails) represents ‘left’ or ‘right’
  4. Get in your car

Every time you arrive at an intersection, flip the coin (we suggest flipping it in advance to give the driver some heads up!). Whichever side it lands on, you turn in that direction. So, if you decided to make heads ‘right’, then if the coin lands on heads, you turn right. Do this for every intersection until you have reached the number that you chose before you began. Wherever you end up, this is where you will have a spontaneous date night.

Of course, a change of clothes may be necessary but casual maternity jeans, maternity blouse or a comfortable maternity dress with ankle boots is so versatile that you can do just about anything and be comfortable in this. Our favorite, however, is a maternity maxi skirt and maternity cardigan which is always chic and easily dressed up or down ensemble.

Back to Basics

Finally! Maternity clothes that we can wear every day, everywhere, for every occasion! A solid hue, both vibrant and muted for every season plus an incredibly soft material? I’m in. There’s nothing we like more than a comfortable wear while we’re pregnant and these are the most stylish live-in pieces that we can definitely get on board with! Some maternity basics and why we LOVE:

 

Dresses. We love them and we hate them. Too short, too long, awkward fitting, and sometimes unflattering. It’s hard to find the right one to really make you look as beautiful as you feel during pregnancy. These maternity dresses are designed with you in mind, catering to every change your body goes through during this transition and adjusts to you as you grow from one week to the next! With these solids, the possibilities are endless. Printed maternity cardigan, scarf, statement necklace…you name it! It’s so incredibly versatile and with a cinched under bust style, how could you go wrong? Perfectly accenting your bump while keeping you comfy cozy all day, you’ll want to wear it everyday.

Tank tops just in time for summer! Pair with printed or distressed maternity jeans for a casual any day occasion with a cute pair of booties and you’re set. Scrape off a whole 15 minutes of your morning routine trying to find just the right outfit with just a quick basic maternity tank top and a printed scarf for the ultimate summer look. It’s laid back, stylish, simple, and SO easy (did we already mention that?).

Weather is cooling down and the sleeves are getting longer so a basic 3/4 sleeve maternity top is just the thing to ease that transition. Throw it with a printed maternity maxi skirt for a casual date night with your husband or out with the girls. Plus, a little chiffon accent gives it a breezy and beautiful accent.

Maternity maxi skirts are the best! We could write a whole blog dedicated to how much we love this trend. It is the most comfortable article of clothing you will wear during pregnancy, and we all know comfort never goes out of style. An elastic waistband to adjust during every stage of your pregnancy and classic solid hue gives you the opportunity to show your creative style with a variety of things from graphics, printed maternity blouses, and a combination of a maternity cami and cardigan during and after pregnancy!

A Day At The Beach

Summer is on our minds with thoughts of warm weather and best of all, beach days.

IMG_0064

We all know the perfect beach bag includes sunscreen, sunglasses, sandals, a towel, hat, and snacks. But now that you’re all packed and ready to go, the difficult decision of what to wear still lingers. What’s important is that you are comfortable throughout the warm day and stylish beach wear is just a plus!

IMG_0015

A maternity maxi dress or maternity maxi skirt offers a free flowing option for the perfect on and off wear. Easily removed and doubled as a perfect bathing suit cover-up, a maternity maxi dress or skirt gives you a perfect transition into night as well. There are so many options for such a versatile piece. Our favorite part about a hectic day at the beach is a simple wardrobe to make us feel comfortable as we relax. Karlee can transition from date night dinner to a casual walk on the beach on a warm summer’s night or enjoy a day at the beach with this printed maternity maxi skirt, adding just the right bold statement and easy, breezy style that screams beach babe.

Maternity tank tops keep you cool all day and layer easily under a maternity cardigan as night falls. Whether it’s a loose, fitted, or printed style, you get the best out of every top. Doubling as a beach cover-up, you can wear this piece as a dress or paired with solid maternity shorts. The ultimate beach and summer wardrobe essentials, this dynamic duo will keep you cool with a comfortable, stretchy and elastic material. A beach day is uncomfortable enough with sand somehow getting everywhere no matter how hard we try to keep it off. Make it simple and care free like it’s meant to be with a classic summer look.

Need to cover up and you just don’t feel like wearing your shorts over a wet bathing suit? We totally get it, no one wants that. A long maternity tank top or maternity tunic is ideal for these situations so you can relax without feeling too exposed. Karlee opted for a nautical inspired look perfect for a day by the sea with this anchor print maternity tank top.

 

So many warm weather essentials, don’t miss out on all of the new arrivals that will give you a comfortable and cool look this summer and the many beach days ahead.

Your Maternity Must-Haves

Look at your closet. If you saw that item in the store right this second, would you buy it? If the answer is ‘no’, it’s time to retire it.  If it is stained, stretched out, piled, or doesn’t fit, it’s definitely time to get rid of it.

At this point, you might be thinking, okay now I really don’t have anything to wear. Don’t worry! We are about to lay out some of the essentials that will fit perfectly into every lifestyle, during and post pregnancy.

Every woman knows in order to complete the perfect wardrobe, you need maternity basics. They are comfortable, flattering, and pair with literally everything. Luckily, basics at PinkBlush can fit and flatter your body during every one of life’s transitions. Whether you are a business woman, new mom, active adventure-seeker, or just love a good Netflix binge, these tops will be your go-to every single time. Fabric from chiffon to cotton and everything in between, you get lightweight summer maternity wear as well as maternity winter must-haves.

Aside from the obvious basics, one casual maternity dress and one maternity date night dress is a must. Normally coming in solid hues, you can go crazy with accessorizing or opt for a playful print to make a bold statement. No doubt you will turn heads walking buy in these dresses.

Next, and possibly our favorite of all time, maternity leggings. Coming in a variety of colors, you can pair these with everything from dress, tops, tunics, to tank tops depending on where you are going. Like the basic tops, active or not, you will want these in your wardrobe arsenal at all times.

A good pair of maternity jeans. Comfortable, stretchy, versatile. With a skinny cut jean, you can pair them with tall boots to sandals to heels for any occasion.  With a flared or boot cut jean, dress it up with a chiffon blouse and heels for a casual night out. Distressed are perfect for an edgy flare and look amazing with a basic and bold colored statement necklace. Basically, if you have one of each, you don’t need anything else.

Finally, a lightweight maternity cardigan, one solid and one printed. It’s easy to pair with any ensemble whether you are looking for a subtle statement or casual layer. Of course, if you live knee deep in snow for half the year like our east coast friends, you will want a heavy jacket or coat as well!

Don’t be afraid of compiling that new wardrobe. We are here to help you find comfortable, stylish, and most importantly, affordable wear that will keep you up to date on all of the latest trends!

PinkBlush Maternity's Hospital Bag Checklist

You’ve been waiting patiently for nine long months and now, today is the day! It’s finally time to welcome your new baby in the world and with all of the excitement, it’s easy to forget the tiniest details. Be prepared for the hospital day by prepping your go-bag early. Some things we may not even have considered to pack turn out to be life savers when the day comes. Below is a list to ensure that even the smallest items don’t get left at home.

The ride to the hospital may not be the most comfortable ride of your life, and it may feel like it takes hours, but by wearing some lounge wear such as yoga pants, leggings, and loose fitted tops, you can make it a little more bearable. The pains of labor are just one more beautiful sign that your baby can’t wait to meet you.

After your baby is born into the world, comfortable nursing wear will make feeding time a bit easier for both of you. You never know when your baby will be hungry, so by having a variety of nursing wear for every occasion, you can be ready for anything.
