I was going through all the photos from this shoot, choosing a few to print, and I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed and just so thankful that I have these images to look back on. The shots of Lucas and I are some of my absolute favorite. Thank you again to my ladies at Hey Mama, HATCH, and my beauty and friend Mary!
You can see the original post and final images here.
I’m so honored to have been asked to style a few pieces for HATCHland – HATCH’S amazing blog full of inspo! I can’t believe I’ve been dressing this bump for 33 weeks already. I’ve been wearing these pieces almost daily and they are going to be just perfect for when the baby arrives..flowy, comfy, nursing-friendly, and beautiful.
A few weeks ago I got to spend the morning with Well Rounded NY, shooting with my dear friend Lindsey, around my hood. Having these photos mean the world – a little reminder I will always have of what a normal morning with my girl looked like before she was Earth side.
I also got to chat with the amazing Well Rounded mamas (ps – follow them on Instagram here!) about pregnancy, life in NYC with my family, and some of my favorite neighborhood spots in case you are local or ever thinking of visiting. You can check it out here.
Have you heard of Hatch? It’s a maternity line created by designer and mama Ariane Goldman with style, beauty, and fluidity in mind. Each piece is meant to grow with your pregnancy and be just as functional AFTER the baby arrives, which is pretty amazing if you ask me. Hatch recently launched their Plage Summer Collection and I had the opportunity to collaborate with them and the amazing ladies over at Hey Mama – a new website (it went live this week!) dedicated to bringing the mama tribe together – for this shoot.
What I love most about the collection is how beautiful I felt in each and every piece. My dear and insanely talented friend, Mary Grace, was the photographer and she made the day even better by putting me at ease and capturing these shots that I will treasure forever. My growing baby girl and I at 28 weeks!
A big thank you to Hatch, Hey Mama, and Mary for making this shoot possible. Follow these amazing moms on Instagram! Hatch | Hey Mama | Mary Grace
These photos were snapped when I was 28 weeks and basking in the tropical island sun. I miss it so! This caftan from Tart Collections was a vacation staple for me. It’s not part of their maternity collection but it fit my growing bump perfectly and it made me feel both comfortable and beautiful – not an easy feat while pregnant! You can check out more of their beachwear here as well as their entire maternity collection.
The weather was amazing this past weekend (although jackets were still required for part of the day..I’m trying not to complain here..). We celebrated a friends birthday in Central Park and after the festivities we strolled around, ate ice cream, and enjoyed the blossoms showing off everywhere.
I’m so fortunate to have been able to work with A Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity this pregnancy. I popped rather quickly and having staples that I can throw on and feel amazing in have really helped when dressing my growing bump. I have been living in these jeans and I swear I can wear them at least 5 times without washing (tmi?) because the stretch is just that good. This soul mates tee is pretty amazing – it’s so so soooftttt and $5 from every purchase is donated to Baby Buggy. Wins. PS – I couldn’t resist adding that adorable toddler face up there!
A few shots my love snapped of me at 21 weeks. I’m wearing the most comfy dress ever. I’m kind of obsessed with it and I’m looking forward to warm days where I can slip it on and go. It’s linen. It’s soft. It’s perfect. I promise more style and dress the bump posts as soon as a coat is no longer necessary – I have boycotted photos with my winter jacket!
I’m officially 22 weeks today. Little miss is the size of a spaghetti squash and is super wiggly and I swear she jumps around at the sound of Lucas’s voice (he’s pretty loud, ya’ll). When that happens it stops me in my tracks and I daydream for a minute of all the fun they are going to have together. Pretty damn awesome. My duo!
I have been a Rachel Zoe fan for years and her new maternity collection could not have launched at a better time! An exclusive collection for A Pea in the Pod, Zoe’s pieces are chic, beautiful, and can be worn long after baby comes.
I am honored to be hosting the launch of the collection this Friday, March 27th, at Destination Maternity. I would love, love to meet you (join us even if you’re not currently expecting – there’s going to be tons of amazing mamas there and prizes to be won!). I’m stoked to be a part of this amazing event and to get this bump dressed up and out of the house!
