I’m so excited to be able to share three fun maternity fashion outfit ideas for spring - from casual to sporty to dressy - that we photographed just a few days before I had my sweet baby girl! Macy’s has so many great pieces right now. I almost (almost) wish I were still pregnant so I could wear more maternity styles! And actually, I picked pieces that can be worn during pregnancy and beyond.

First up, I paired a sleeveless top that’s feminine and a little boho with the prettiest swiss dot design (size Small). I love the texture and button detail. And ladies, this top is just $14.97 now!

Then I added distressed jeans with a full panel (took my pre-pregnancy size Small) and layered on a light cardigan (size Medium since I’m tall, I like a looser fit). I live in jeans so it makes sense to continue wearing jeans while pregnant - luckily Motherhood Maternity makes all the latest styles so you can stay on trend!

The top is nursing friendly (just lift up) and the jeans are comfy post-partum, too. The light wash is perfect for spring.









Next up, this sporty look. I love a good slogan/graphic t-shirt and couldn’t resist the cheeky little message on this one! Strangers are going to comment when you’re pregnant - that’s a given. Might as well give them a good laugh and something to talk about!

The chambray shirt is another essential that you can wear buttoned up or open the entire pregnancy and beyond. Love having my usual staple pieces in maternity versions. Makes getting dressed easy!

Finally, I’m loving these full-panel leggings. You want comfort and support and these deliver on both accounts. Perfect post-partum, too. Wearing size small (again, just went with my pre-pregnancy size on these).





If you’re looking for a pretty special occasion maternity dress - think Mother's Day, a pregnancy photoshoot, even a spring wedding - I highly recommend this twist-front maxi dress. Something about being pregnant brings out my girly side and I just loved the romantic sleeves, floral print and colors of this dress. Again you can wear this anytime during pregnancy - right up until 40 weeks and beyond (trust me, I know!) or even if you’re not pregnant. I love that I can wear a regular bra with this dress, too. Wearing size small for reference.










The fabric is soft and flowy and not clingy. Dress it up or down. Can not recommend this dress enough. I felt like a goddess LOL...even my two little boys said wow mommy you look so pretty!

Overall, from the styles to quality to sizing to pricing, Motherhood Maternity and A Pea in the Pod are two of the best maternity clothing brands. And you can find both at Macy’s. I ended up buying a couple more things that I’ll share on Instagram. Like I said, so many fun, affordable options. Pregnant mammas have it so good these days! Dressing the bump in style has never been easier.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you and your family. Looking forward to some baby photos? And the photos in this post are radiant.

On a more selfish note: Could one of your experts take a look at Target's new Opalhouse home decor line and see what they think?
