Not Your Mom’s Maternity Clothes!

For most, the word maternity could be less than appealing. We’re stuck in a world where maternity clothes were made with ruched sides and A-Line (mumu) silhouettes. Well, it’s safe to say the maternity clothes your mother wore are nothing like maternity wear for the modern & chic mother these days! I have friends that swear they would never wear maternity clothes, but then third trimester comes knocking on their closet door! Knock, Knock!! What’s an expecting mother to do? Why spend money on clothes you’ll only wear once? I don’t want to lose my style with frumpy and boring styles!  Not to worry, we’re here to de-myth misconceptions about maternity clothes!

Not only does PinkBlush design specifically with the expecting mother in mind but the functionality and convenience of our styles allow you to transition from pregnancy to motherhood without skipping a beat or breaking the bank! Recently I asked my girlfriend who is expecting her second child why she didn’t wear maternity clothes, her answer, “Maternity clothes can be expensive and they only last during pregnancy.” So here’s your Ah-Ha moment, one word, MAXIS! I’ve found that maxis can be your all-in-one, go-to for pregnancy. Not only can you wear them for maternity photos and baby showers, but once baby arrives they will keep you feeling gorgeous and provide convenience to nurse in! Bam!

Maternity clothing that you won’t just wear once but even after baby!

One Dress Three Ways

mintgreen-blog

There’s no doubt that mint is our favorite hues for the spring season. While we love the traditional pastel colors of yellow, pink, and blue, mint is just a little extra ordinary with its soft, yet electric tone. If you’re looking to make your wardrobe stand out this year, then mint is the hue that can make that happen. We love mint so much, we thought we would take one of our most popular maternity dresses for spring and style it three ways, just to show you how amazing this hue (and this dress) is. Check out our one look three ways inspired post:

Feminine Chic

This floral maternity dress is perfect from day to night occasions. For a gorgeously feminine look, this piece looks stunning when paired with a pink handbag and neutral heels. A beautiful ensemble for date night or Easter celebrations coming in just a couple of weeks. You can dress this look up even further with a jeweled statement necklace or our favorite jewelry.

Suburban Style

For a day spent in the city, we styled this mint floral maternity dress with slip on tennis shoes and a stylish pair of sunglasses. Perfect for the suburban mom that is going out for a casual brunch or running errands.  While chiffon is usually reserved for more formal occasions, we like to style it down for casual wear because we think every mom should feel nothing less than beautiful every day.

California Girl

There’s nothing like spending a day in the sun with the right dress. Simply transform this floral maternity dress into a California girl look with a floppy sun hat and a belt for a complete ensemble. Strap on a pair of your favorite wedges and you are ready for a beach day! The possibilities are endless in this maternity dress, all you need is a gorgeous mint hue and a pretty floral print, and you can style this dress for any event or occasion this year.

Date Night At Home

Sometimes a date night in can be just as fun and exciting as date night out. For young couples expecting a newborn in the near future, a night in with your loved one is much needed! With busy schedules, pregnancy fatigue, and saving up for a baby, date night in is actually pretty perfect. If you’re a new parent or soon-to be parent, we still want you to make date night as special as possible, so here are a couple of gorgeous maternity looks for an evening spent at home. These are simple, easy, and mom-approved date night looks that are perfect for a night in.

One of our favorite things to do with our S.O. is to cook dinner together! It’s a great way to bond and catch up for a night while making something delicious. For a dinner date in, we think a floral short sleeve maternity top with maternity jeans and slip on shoes is the perfect ensemble. You can stay comfortable while cooking in something casual, but choosing a top with a gorgeous floral print makes all the difference. Just make sure to be careful while cooking in your date night outfit, as oil or other ingredients might splatter on your clothes!

Outdoor Picnic or Movie Night

We just love a romantic evening spent outside as the sun goes down and cuddled up next to that special someone. For an evening picnic or a movie outdoors, a maternity maxi dress is our go-to as long sleeves and a long bottom will keep you warm. Not to mention, a printed and draped style dress looks absolutely stunning for a date night. Your dress will do most of the work for you, so all you need to do is complete the look with your favorite accessories! Here we chose a feminine hat and a stylish tote bag to complete our date night look. 

We hope you enjoyed this date night at home inspired post, have a happy weekend!

mom on the go 1

If you’re a mom that does it all, from working during the day to running errands at night, then you know that dressing functional and fashionable just isn’t ideal sometimes. With a growing belly and a jam-packed schedule, there will be days when all you want to do is throw on a comfy pair of sweatpants and a big t-shirt, and just go.  But, with just a few simple maternity essentials, we think we can help you be a mom-on-the-go in style.

One of our favorite go-tos for a mom that’s always on the run is a solid maternity maxi dress. Don’t just buy one; buy a couple that you are both comfortable in and love seeing on yourself. Even if it’s the same dress in different colors, (we’ve all done that before) as long as you are happy and feel beautiful in what you wear, the more the merrier!

Another one of our must-have essentials for a mom-on-the-go, is a a big tote bag or diaper bag.  Luckily for all the moms in modern times, Petunia Pickle Bottom designs some adorable diaper bags that look just like a normal tote! This Dowtown Tote by PPB features a roomy interior, zipper closure, and a washable baby changing pad. Never again will you need to sacrifice style for functionality with these diaper bags!

Not only are these maternity essentials perfect for everyday casual wear, but they look great for date night too! Dress up a maternity maxi dress with a statement necklace and your favorite heels for dinner in the city. Just having a movie night with the hubby? Throw on your favorite pair of strappy sandals with your maxi dress and you have a stylish ensemble you can wear for anything. Now that we’ve set you up for success, get out there and get styling!
