Summertime fashion is the most fun. You can show a little skin. The patterns and colors are more vibrant. You can get a little flirty with your wardrobe and we love that! Besides looking amazing, you want clothes that will travel well and keep you cool and comfortable. You want accessories that will work with you even when you are on the go. We’ve put together some of our favorite styles in this Fashion Guide for the Summer of 2016.
It’s not easy to be pregnant in the summer, but there’s nothing like some amazing new maternity clothing to help perk you right up! We’ve been big fans of PinkBlush Maternity for quite some time, and their latest spring/summer line is everything we’ve come to expect from this company: trendy, fashionable clothing at affordable prices. If you don’t want to break the bank buying maternity clothing this season, look no further than PinkBlush Maternity.
Gone are the days of oversized mumu dresses and baggy sweatpants. Maternity fashion has evolved into some of the most desirable, high-quality, and comfortable clothing in the fashion world, giving new modern moms the opportunity to expand upon their personal style… and not just their waistline. While we love bright colors and fun patterns when it comes to accessorizing the bump, there’s something to be said about the timeless beauty and instant touch of chic that a classic black and white color combo has to offer — not to mention an aesthetic that simply doesn’t go out of style. If you’re going to spend your hard earned money on maternity fashion, why not choose something that can remain a staple in your closet throughout your pregnancy and beyond?

When you’re a mom, time away from your daily routine is unusual. What happens when you run into a rare day of unexpected down time? Maybe all of your kids were invited to play dates at friends’ houses on the same day. Perhaps your husband makes last minute plans to take the kids out for the day, giving you a well-deserved break (feel free to pass this along for someone who might need a hint for Mother’s Day!) In these moments, it’s easy to feel the paralysis of “What should I do now?!” as you try to figure out how to spend this precious time.
The mothers in our lives do so much on a daily basis. Whether it be your own mother who has been watching out for you your entire life, or you, the mother who spends her days taking care of the house and the children; for all that mom does, she is certainly deserving of some extra love this year. In addition to a fantastic handmade gift from the kids or grandkids be sure to check out our amazing collection of Ultimate Gifts! They are as amazing as they are unique, and you are sure to find something that mom will love.
Do you know a mama who never seems to stop? She’s home with the kids. She works outside or from home. She hits up the gym then has a meeting to help with a school fundraiser. The busy mama is taking on the world in every way possible. Give her a gift that will make her full days a little easier. Here are our top picks for busy moms!
We know that moms can end up in old sweatpants and a t-shirt a lot of days. Taking care of yourself just isn’t a priority with a pack of young ones under foot. Show the mom in your life how beautiful she is and treat her to something pretty to thank her for all she does for your family. If mama won’t treat herself, you need to spoil her this Mother’s Day.
Here are our top fashion and jewelry gifts for Mother’s Day.
If you want to skip the flowers and cheesy drug store card this Mother’s Day, we have got what you need right here. Pick something for Mom that is as special as she is and get straight to her heart with a unique gift.
Socks are like straitjackets for feet, and finding a pair that doesn’t bunch up or have annoying toe seams is near impossible. No wonder kids act like rabid squirrels when forced to wear them. Adults get the option of going sock-free thankfully, and most casual shoes nowadays would look downright dorktastic with them anyway. There is just one teeny, tiny problem with going sock-commando: the putrid stench that comes from sockless feet. It’s awful… not to mention embarrassing!
It’s that time of year when the flowers are starting to bloom. So it’s time to pull out your spring wardrobe and put a spring in your step. The Rockport 2016 spring line is the perfect place to start when looking for that ideal pair of flats or heels to add to your wardrobe. This entire line is made for women on the move; it’s the one pair that you can start your day in and then wear into the night, providing you with a glove-like comfort to get you through. Keeping with the spring trends, the line has the most popular spring colors and fun patterns to match your style. Each pair is not only cute but also durable and comes in both suede or canvas. Now all you have to do is decide which ones are for you.
Congratulations! You’ve reached the third trimester, meaning that you’re finally in the home stretch of your pregnancy. The third trimester of pregnancy can be physically challenging any time of year, but it can be especially uncomfortable if you’re expecting a summer baby; and who wants to spend a lot of money on maternity clothes this late in the game?
Ripe Maternity knows how important it is for us to stay as comfortable as possible during pregnancy. They also know that we don’t want to spend a fortune on clothing that we’ll only wear for a few months. Their spring collection is designed to keep you fashionable and comfy through the 3rd and 4th trimesters.
As women, we go through many different stages in our lives, so it only makes sense that there be clothing options that are not only comfortable and fitting to each stage, but beautiful and stylish as well. Every woman deserves to feel comfortable and gorgeous, whether she’s pregnant, breastfeeding, working outside of the home in a business environment or an avid traveler. No matter what stage you’re at in life, Melody Lane has you covered, with hand curated pieces that will work perfectly for you. And they just launched their spring line, which is sure not to disappoint!
