Our Must-Have Style Staples For Every Stage of the Motherhood Journey

Thank you to our friends at A Pea in the Pod for partnering with us on this story.

An exciting new stage of life calls for a seriously chic wardrobe. For Arielle and Meghan, A Pea in the Pod has been one of their favorite destinations for pregnancy and motherhood-friendly fashion essentials. After all: the modern mom or expecting mom deserves a stylish and functional wardrobe that helps her feel her best!

Here, Arielle and Meghan are sharing their pregnancy and postpartum style essentials, from a trusty pair of leggings to a sweater that is both practical and sophisticated.

Arielle's Pregnancy Style Staples

Flowy tops and easy-to-wear leggings have become go-tos for Arielle during her pregnancy. The Luxe Essentials Leggings from A Pea in the Pod are a staple because they’re stretchy and incredibly comfortable to wear. Plus, they are designed with the brand's patented Secret Belly Fit to ensure ultimate bump support.

To complete her legging look, Arielle typically turns to a printed top with femme details, like this embroidered A Pea in the Pod Button Front Maternity Shirt. The button-down opening accommodates a bump, and conveniently accommodates post-pregnancy nursing.

Meghan's Postpartum Style Staples

Meghan’s postpartum uniform prioritizes comfort and ease. “I start my day by taking my daughter on a 20-minute walk around the neighborhood before office hours, and these A Pea in the Pod Active Leggings have been my go-to,” Meghan said. “They adapt to your body and are SO comfortable!”

Meghan typically pairs the leggings with a classic sweater that can transition from her morning outing to a day of nonstop Zoom meetings. The Ripe Pull Over Cable Knit Nursing Sweater from A Pea in the Pod is a chic choice that is breathable and comfortable enough to wear for hours on end.
