Style a la Pinkblush Maternity

Now that I’m in the 6th month of my pregnancy, my belly has popped enough to where it is obvious that I’m pregnant and not leaving others wondering if I simply ate too much. And since I am now really showing, I can finally start to have fun with dressing up my baby bump.

There’s an age-old rumor that maternity clothes is outdated and unflattering but I’m here to tell you that it’s far from the truth.

Pinkblush is a company that sells gorgeous maternity clothing that is chic, modern, fun, & comfortable and it’s incredibly affordable. I personally am not one to splurge on maternity clothing because it’s not something that I am going to be wearing for long since I am on the petite side. But, with that being said, the clothes that I have received from Pinkblush is versatile and not made like “traditional” maternity clothes so they’ll wear perfectly as everyday clothes after The Gold Nugget arrives.

The Jade lace belt is so lightweight and thin you’ll want to wear it everyday. A not-so-fun symptom of pregnancy is constantly feeling overheated and the last thing we want is to wear clothes that is thick or heavy. This dress is fantastic during summer months (aka year-round for us San Diegans.) Wear it with flats during the day and then add some heels when you’re ready to head out at night.

A shirt that doubles as a tunic, I’ll take it! Dresses are typically much easier to wear while pregnant than shirts; shirts can be incredibly unflattering, tug and pull, aren’t long enough, the list goes on and on. This shirt is so dang comfy and has so much stretch that I also felt like wearing it everyday. The super cute polka dot pocket is a fun accent to an already beautiful piece and because it’s extra long and ruched, you can wear it as a regular shirt or pull down on the fabric and wear it as a tunic with some leggings.

:: Red Multi-Color Crochet back maxi dress ::

Want to feel like a goddess? This maxi dress is the one for you. The color? Stunning! Talk about feeling like a red-hot mama. I love maxi dresses because of their simplicity to wear but dislike when they aren’t floor length but this dress fell to my feet perfectly. Everything about this dress is amazing, I fell in love with it the moment I put it on. It hugs every curve perfectly, makes your boobs look amazing, and has gorgeous crochet straps and back (that I forgot to photograph. D’oh! Blame it on the pregnancy brain). It’s also very lightweight so it doesn’t feel like your being weighed down by a bunch of fabric. I received so many compliments when wearing this dress, I felt like a total superstar!

 

Being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style and Pinkblush has got all of your fashion needs covered from dresses to shirts & pants and accessories. There is something for every style and personality. I found some amazing items and my inner fashionista did a booty dance when I saw how beautiful the clothing is and how well it fits. Not pregnant? No worries, Pinkblush doesn’t just sell maternity clothes. There are plenty of options for every woman as well!

Registration level: Golden 

I’ve reached the 6 month mark of my pregnancy and I think it’s a good time to start working on my baby registry.

There is the traditional option of going store to store to create a registry and at most stores you are given a little goodie bag with samples, coupons, and useful resources. My favorite thing about going to a store is using the scanner, it’s like a little ray gun that you can have fun with as you scan every item that grabs your attention (pew pew).

As fun and exciting as that is, more and more people are choosing the option of creating their registries online. It’s quicker, you don’t have to leave the couch, you get access to exclusive online-only items, and they keep track of items already purchased so that your friends and family can see it all at a glance and avoid gifting you multiples. Online registries are also great for those that live further away and might not be able to make it to your baby shower or simply don’t get to visit often.

Until recently, online registries had to be created separately with each store that you wished to have one with. Thanks to that handy-dandy Pinterest, I stumbled upon Babylist, a one stop shop online baby registry that keeps any and every item you can think of all in one place.

How awesome is that?!

Simply sign-up, add the add-item button to your bookmarks bar, and browse away. Any time you come across an item you want to add, click the bookmark and it automatically links the item to your registry adding a description and price. You can also customize the descriptions and choose which category to add it to. One of my favorite features is that it not only shows the price from the website you found the item, say, Target, but also the pricing for the same item on Amazon, so that your guests can get it at the best price. Your guests can then choose to have it mailed to their home or directly to you!

I was so impressed with how easy it is to use and I love that I can add items from any online store whether they have the option for registries or not. I went crazy on Etsy items, lol.

They also have apps for both iOS and Android so that you can add items while you’re on the go. Check out how organized and easy to navigate their app is:
