She {hearts} Mine for Nine

baby boom virtual shower

With 3 pregnancies under my belt, you would think I would have a wide collection of maternity clothing. What happens however, over the course of 8 years and 3 kids later – your body changes, styles change and seasons are never the same.

With 7 moves, a summer baby almost 8 years ago, a winter baby 5 years ago and a Spring baby 2 years ago… despite sporting a bump 3 times, now a 4th… I honestly have very little maternity clothing.

mine4nine2I really have no desite however, to go out and spend a fortune on a bunch of maternity items, that MAY fit now, but with the next pregnancy, maybe not.

So let me introduce you to a great solution :) – Mine For Nine.

It is a shop online, that allows you to RENT amazing maternity clothing for minimal cost. Instead of going out and spending a ton of money on maternity clothes, you may only wear once… why not rent it for less and then, when another pregnancy rolls around, you can enjoy shopping all over again renting new clothes, that fit you better, go with the style of the season more & so on.

Mine for Nine makes sense!

I rented out an amazing jean skirt. The fit is amazing. The quality of clothing is top of the line. By far one of the nicest maternity items I’ve ever worn.

mine4nineI hope to update this post in a few days, once I get a picture of myself wearing the skirt. Trust me though, its nice! :)

So if you are pregnant – or even have a friend who is & want to treat them with an amazing designer piece(s) of maternity clothing, check out the Mine for Nine shop! If you are in the market to buy, you can buy the items as well. :)

She {hearts} SweetPea Maternity

baby boom virtual shower

023 When I was pregnant with Jayden, I barely wore maternity clothes aside from the occasional novelty tee with my yoga pants. I also wore those cute tie-up tops that were loose around the belly. They were trendy back then, so they were all over the Juniors Dept. To me, they look like regular ol’ maternity tops… much better than the frumpy and less flattering sold in the maternity section. I don’t do frumpy and over-sized. I NEED trendy maternity clothes in my life.

Before I knew that I was pregnant with Jayden, I discovered SweetPea Maternity (then Kiki’s Fashions) and I absolutely fell in love with their clothing line. I reviewed a “tie-up shirt” that I ended up wearing before, throughout, and after my pregnancy. And that’s what I love about SweetPea Maternity, their maternity clothes are trendy and can be worn anytime! Umm… and they’re affordable! Score!

SweetPea recently sent me this fabulous 3/4 sleeve tunic that I simply adore. The collar, cuffs, and bottom feature a tribal design, which I’m totally diggin’. The fabric is so light and stretchy… it’s simply divine against my skin. I chose to pair it with some grey leggings during a recent trip to the strawberry field. I was cute and comfy… at ease with the breeze.

She {hearts} Maternity Maxi Dresses

I recently read a blog post that featured one of my favorite maternity shops. I clicked over to the shop and found sooo many fashionable maternity pieces, but I fell in love with their selection of maxi dresses in particular. I wanted to share them all with you, but to prevent any bias, I decided to put together a board of some of my favorite maternity maxi dresses from a variety of shops. Enjoy!

She {hearts} Isabella Oliver Maternity

If there is ever a time in a woman’s life when it is especially important for her to feel beautiful, it is during pregnancy! With so many physical changes going on, it is nice to know there is still fashionable attire available that does not make one look like she is wearing a tent! I have recently fallen in love with Isabella Oliver Maternity.





Isabella Oliver Maternity offers a huge selection of gorgeous maternity wear, from tunics to dresses to shirts to pants to blazers! I adore my new Tuck Detail Tunic in Electric Plum. I’m still only 5 months into my second pregnancy, so I’m not showing a lot yet, but I can already tell that this is going to be my “go-to” maternity piece this winter! The long-sleeved tunic is well-made and comfortable, and while I enjoy wearing it now with flats and cropped leggings, I also think it will pair perfectly with boots and a scarf as the weather gets cooler!

She {hearts} Peek-a-boo

I love transition pieces – you know, the ones you can wear year-round because of their versatility.  I recently was introduced to Peek-a-boo, a clothing company that represents the ultimate in versatility!  I received one of their black sleeveless nursing tanks, and I love wearing it. The nursing access is discreet and easy to use, and the fabric has held up through several washings already.

I am using it currently as a nursing top… but wait… there’s more!  This top also “transforms” into a maternity top thanks to the lovely side rouching that is oh-so-flattering for your baby bump!

If you are currently pregnant, buy this top now and wear it all nine months, plus wear it when/if you are nursing!  If you are a nursing mama who plans on having more children, invest in this top now and know you’ll have a wardrobe staple you can count on as you grow your next little one.

Peek-a-boo has many other awesome styles of nursing and maternity wear, and like this one, all of the pieces are “total solution” pieces, in that they are designed to be worn while pregnant, nursing, or both!
