If you’ve been following my blog and/or Instagram this summer, you know I’ve got maternity fashion on the brain. I was thrilled to discover Pink Blush, a chic new brand of beyond-basics that will keep you looking and feeling stylish throughout your pregnancy. With an emphasis on flattering fits and pretty fabrics, these duds are designed for the mama-to-be who wants to celebrate this special time and not feel frumpy.
They have a regular collection, too, so save a little dough to stock up on post-baby finds for next season, too. In my frenzy to select a couple of standout pieces for fall, I decided my two speeds will be classic chic and hippie-girly. Today I’m reviewing my favorites from Pink Blush’s new line — find it all on their beautiful site. And, make sure to enter below for a chance to win a $25 gift card to jumpstart your maternity shopping spree!
I had so much fun wearing this dress — it’s effortlessly sexy without being over-the-top. When I went downstairs to meet Josh for a dinner date in this, he was floored. The fully lined top means no embarrassing bra bump and the deep scoop neck shows off your collarbone — one area that still has definition! And, while the skirt allows plenty of room to accommodate a growing bump, it falls close to the body to emphasize your shape at every stage. The breathable cotton has a high-quality feel, and is easy to care for. I have a feeling this will be a coveted favorite that friends will be grabbing from my closet the minute they get pregnant. Here, I have it paired with some chunky brown Frye platforms, but it’ll look perfect with boots in the fall, too. Love!

For the sweet and girly side, I felt a Tiffany blue chiffon sheath with purple bow print was just the thing. I was surprised at how vibrant and lovely the print was in person — sometimes these items come out of the box looking different than expected. I love that the white woven belt doesn’t have set holes but instead is easy to hook wherever you like for a perfect fit every time, no matter what your belly does in the next nine months. This is a great dress for a baby shower, with comfy heels, platforms, or ballet flats. But it would also be super-cute for a day of shopping with girlfriends or a date with your baby-daddy. I love how flowy and light this feels to the skin, and while it’s beautiful for summer, I know I’ll be getting plenty of mileage out of it in the months before Baby G arrives. (And you know we never miss an opportunity to take a selfie. Sorry).
