It’s frustrating to buy maternity clothes when you only wear them for about five months… if that. My first pregnancy I bought all the pregnancy clothes. I thought I would need them, but in reality, I didn’t wear all of them that often. With my second pregnancy, I bought a few essentials but didn’t purchase many. Partly it was because I had some left over from the first, but also because I was pregnant during the winter months (cue all the big comfy sweaters).

One thing I tried to do with this pregnancy was find maternity clothes that I could also wear post-pregnancy. A few things didn’t quite fit right after I lost that big old bump, but one of my favorite items was a long sleeved cold shoulder pink ruffle top from PinkBlush. It fit perfectly during pregnancy and now that my daughter is here and the bump is gone, it still fits just great.

Although this top is currently out of stock, I’ve linked a similar option to check out, and it’s only $24. Happy shopping!

The Perfect Dress for a Carolina Winter

spring-dress-1.jpgspring fashionwomen's fashiondress

If you’ve been following along with my blog posts you would know that I’m originally from New York and just recently moved to the Charlotte area to relocate for my husband’s job. It has been a huge change with a new home, no family around, and getting to know the new area.

So far I’ve loved the transition and am getting used to all the new aspects of my life, but the one thing that seems to make it all so worth it is this Carolina weather. The other day I ran errands in this dress and it was 62 degrees here, and 24 degrees in my hometown. That alone is worth the move down south.

Back in New York, January would be another sweater and boots month for me. Now that I’m in Charlotte I am loving that I get to wear these comfortable dresses to run errands when I leave the house.

Recently I received this adorable dress from PinkBlush, and it has been perfect for this time of year in the Carolina’s. For the last few months I wore tons of their maternity clothes, so when I learned that they also had women’s clothing I was all on board to try some of their regular items.

This Grey Striped Ruffle Trim dress is the perfect piece for this time of year. I love the light gray color, but it also comes in black or charcoal grey. If you like a dress with a cinched waistline this is the dress for you. It hugs my waist right where I want it to without being too tight. I absolutely love the ruffle trim bottom and sleeves which give it some character. The material is so soft but is thick enough to feel comfortable wearing. One of the best parts about it is this dress has pockets. C’mon ladies, you know you love a good pocket dress.

Check out PinkBlush‘s website for some of their adorable clothing items. If you’re interested in more outfit ideas with PinkBlush, check out some of my recent blog posts with some of their amazing pieces:

Twinning With PinkBlush

maternity-wear.jpgmaternity Shirtmommy-and-me3.jpg

A few months back I received this adorable Peach Floral Striped Knot Tie Maternity Top from PinkBlush and absolutely loved it. It is such a great fit and has been perfect for my growing belly during pregnancy. It’s not only cute but so comfy. I wear it around the house and out and about as well.

Then I stumbled upon this adorable Mauve Floral Striped Toddler Swing Dress for my little mini, and I simply couldn’t resist buying it for her! We bought her a size 3T since she’s just about that size, and it fits her great. It’s a great length and is so soft and comfortable.

She certainly loves matching her mama, and naturally, mama loves matching her right back!

There is nothing like having a super comfortable dress that can be worn all the time. My latest dress from PinkBlush is so comfortable that I find myself wearing it out, but also a comfy dress for quick errands or just lounging around the house in.

The best part about this Navy Floral Fitted Wrap Maternity Dress is I will totally be wearing it after the baby is born because it will be so easy to nurse in. This dress is the softest velvet material and is the perfect fit from the bust to the length of the dress.

Mommy and Me Matching Cardigans with PinkBlush

Mommy and me matchingFall weather

Just when I thought I could not love PinkBlush more, I stumble upon their kid’s section. This could get dangerous.

Recently I received the softest, long light gray cardigan from PinkBlush that I am absolutely in love with. It is so comfortable and perfect for this fall weather we’re finally starting to get. It can easily be worn with a cute top and jeans or is perfect to throw on when you’re just going to wear a simple pair of leggings around the house.

The best part is that I found a long gray cardigan that my daughter can also wear during this autumn season from PinkBlush. It is so easy to just throw on her before we go somewhere, and she just looks too cute in it! Although she is still wearing 2T clothes, they are slowly phasing out, so although this 3T is a little big right now, she can wear it for months to come.

I am so excited for this crisp fall weather, and for more adorable matching finds that I’ll be looking for at PinkBlush!

The Perfect Maternity Top to Transition from Summer to Fall

maternity-fashion.jpg

My favorite season has always been autumn. When the slightest hint of fall comes around you can bet that I will unpack my cooler weather clothes, pull out my fall scented candles, and grab a pumpkin spice latte at the nearest coffee shop ASAP.

The only problem is that sometimes it’s a little too warm to pull out the fall clothes right away. This is when I pull out my transition pieces from summer and fall and they are just as fun to wear as those comfy sweaters.

My recent favorite find is this adorable Ivory Floral Chiffon Ruffle Trim Maternity Blouse from PinkBlush. This is the absolute perfect top to begin wearing during this fall weather when the days are not quite cool enough for sweaters but still slightly warm outside.

It still has a summer floral feel but has beautiful long chiffon sleeves which are perfect for autumn. This shirt is adorable and is so comfortable to wear. I especially love the cinched sleeves and the ruffle trim front that give it a unique look.

This is definitely a top that I will be continuing to wear after pregnancy. Check out so many more adorable maternity tops from PinkBlush that will lead you right from summer to fall.

Why Pink Blush Has Been My Go To Maternity Store for Two Years

Pregnancy Red Dress

When I learned I was pregnant back in 2016, I hit a point where I was in desperate need of maternity clothes. I had two weddings, three baby showers (one being my own), and just a general need for casual clothes as well as items I could wear to work. I found a few bland pieces at local stores that got me through a month or two. I told myself that I was just going to have to deal with not feeling comfortable or cute in any clothes while I was pregnant for the next few months.

That was before I heard of Pink Blush.

One day while browsing Pinterest I stumbled upon the website Pink Blush, and suddenly realized that I could wear some beautiful, trendy clothes as a pregnant woman, while still being comfortable. These clothes are what I continued to wear after pregnancy when I was still postpartum and not back to my normal weight. Some dresses I was even able to wear after I was back to my normal weight.

Fast forward to 2018 and I am pregnant again, wearing the same beautiful dresses from Pink Blush that I wore during my last pregnancy, as well as some new items that I couldn’t live without.

2018 Pink Blush Favorites

Red Floral Crochet Tassel Tie Maternity Shift Dress

maternity-red-dress.jpg

This dress is one of the most comfortable summer dresses I have ever owned. The polyester material is so light to wear out and about on these warm summer days. It can easily be paired with heels to wear to a formal event, or worn with some sandals to run errands. Just when I thought I couldn’t love this dress more, I realized it has pockets. C’mon ladies, you know we all love a good pocket dress!

When it was shipped to me the tassels were tied together in a bow at the top, but personally, I like the untied look better with an open neckline. This dress is the perfect fit and is designed to be worn before, during and after pregnancy.

Peach Floral Striped Knot Tie Maternity Top

Floral Maternity Top

This floral and striped top is the perfect piece that can be casually worn around town or dressed up to wear to work. The front has a floral pattern with striped sleeves for a unique look, while the back is only stripes. It’s so easy to pair with a simple jean and bootie outfit, or could be dressed up with a black pencil skirt and heels.

It is 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex so it is very comfortable and has the perfect fit. I love the way it fits right around my bump with the knot tie detail on the left side hemline. The best part is I can wear this now at 20 weeks, but I can see that it will easily continue to fit my growing belly until I am full term.

2016 Pink Blush Favorites

Coral Maternity/Nursing Dress

Coral Pregnancy Dress

This simple, but beautiful dress has been one of my favorites for years. I wore it when I was pregnant with my daughter who is now almost two. I continued to wear it for months after she was born because it was so easy to breastfeed her in this dress. After I got back to my pre-baby weight I could still easily wear this dress, it just had a bit more flow to it.

I constantly wore this dress casually with a pair of flats or sandals and a jean jacket, or dressed it up with heels and wore it to a wedding. It is so versatile while also allowing you to feel so comfortable and cute wearing it.

Mint Floral Chiffon Maternity Dress

This mint floral dress is one of Pink Blush’s most popular items. This was the dress that caught my eye on Pinterest and helped me discover this beautiful range of dresses. I wore this to my baby shower with my first born. It fit so well and was so comfortable to wear. I loved that I could wear this dress with sleeves throughout the summer, and still didn’t get too warm because the sleeve material was so light and airy. It is also double lined to prevent sheerness. This dress continued to fit better and better the more the baby grew.

I have two other friends that bought this same exact dress because they too saw it on Pinterest and they love it just as much as I do. I have never received so many compliments on a dress as I do this one.

Delivery/Nursing Maternity Robe

maternity-robe.jpg

Pink Blush calls these Delivery/Nursing and Maternity Robe’s, but I call them “the comfiest thing I’ve ever put on my body and I wear it every day of my life” robe. When I say that I have worn this robe almost every single day since the birth of my daughter, I’m not lying to you. This is my go-to garment when I get out of the shower, and I wear it all morning long while I get ready until I get dressed in the morning.

I wore it when I was pregnant with my first daughter, and it fit perfectly over my growing belly. It was the comfiest piece of clothing to nurse my daughter in, and I’m so happy that I brought this robe to the hospital with me while I was there for a few days. It is still in beautiful condition and I’m so excited to wear it all the time throughout this second pregnancy as well.

The specific robe I purchased two years ago is not sold anymore, but I have linked two very similar options here and here.

My final thoughts…

Before you go, let me leave you with a few things:

  1. Pink Blush allows you to get 10% off your first order, so you can instantly get a discounted price.
  2. I am so excited that Pink Blush now has regular women’s clothing, so if you become as addicted as me, you can still buy their adorable items even when you’re not pregnant.
  3. Better yet, they have KIDS clothing that you can purchase for your baby or toddler, and you can guarantee you will be seeing more of that from me in the future.

Comment or message me if you have any questions about styling, sizing or fit on any of these cute items!
