A Pea In The Pod

August 1st, 2014 1 comment

When I found out that I was pregnant, I got so excited and immediately started thinking about how I was going to dress my bump!   I quickly learned that I could find maternity pieces that maintained my pre-pregnancy style and that was really worth the investment. I mixed some of the things that I already had in my closet that I still really loved and added them to my new maternity wardrobe.  I wanted to look good and feel comfortable during these precious 9 months of pregnancy. The maternity pieces I bought from A Pea in the Pod have a great fit and are really high quality.  They are well worth the investment since I wore them all the time during my pregnancy and I can even wear some of the pieces now post-pregnancy.

A Pea in the Pod was a life saver for me. It saved me a lot of time since I didn’t have to drive around to a bunch of different maternity stores as they carry a large selection of items that I love. During my pregnancy, I also found it easier to shop online and they have a large selection to choose from on their site.

Here are some of my favorite pieces!

Fitted black dress: A great fitted black dress is wonderful because you can wear it with flats during the day to a doctor visit or to work and put on a pair of kitten heels for dinner. http://www.apeainthepod.com/Product.asp?product_Id=25264Z20581&MasterCategory_Id=MC28

Camel coat: This is definitely a fall must-have because it is great for day and night and very stylish. (Note: coat will be available in stores and online in August).

Blue denim shirt: This shirt is super lightweight, comfortable and you can style it with a pair of black leggings, or jeans and with flats or heels. http://www.apeainthepod.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=162040004&MasterCategory_Id=MC1

A black motorcycle jacket: A classic to wear over black leggings, turtle neck and boots, or over a fitted black dress. It is also great for a casual night out with a pair of jeans and a cute t-shirt. http://www.apeainthepod.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=117950071&MasterCategory_Id=MC8

A pair of maternity jeans is a must. I wear mine almost everyday. You need a pair of blue and black.

Baby Sage is 2 weeks old this week. I wanted some cute pajamas to lounge around the house with my little one, and this little Bella set from Cosabella is perfect.  It’s very comfortable and lightweight. I’m also obsessed the Mommie bra, great for maternity and nursing. I want them in every color now.

Welcome Baby Sage!

July 21st, 2014 15 comments

Baby Sage arrived last Saturday, she weighs 6 lbs and 8 oz. It’s truly a blessing to have her in our lives. My labor and delivery went smoothly.   I was in labor for 10 hours and 45mins of pushing. I’m breast feeding her and hopefully I can return back to my normal size soon so I can wear all my clothes again. I gained 50 lbs total during the pregnancy, and have lost 25 lbs, I have another 20-25 lbs to go!

My first day at the hospital with her. I put on some make up to make myself feel better. I brought my own clothes to wear during my two days stay at the hospital.

I’m 9 months and 5 days today!! My doctor said Sage can be here any moment now and I’m so nervous and excited at the same time. I have heard many stories on delivery & labor and soon it will be my turn. I hope it will be fast and easy for me. I wore this outfit to a birthday dinner this week.  My feet swollen real bad, I am now I’m wearing size 38 from 36.5. Hopefully it will come back to normal after Sage :-)  Be sure to shop the NINI NGUYEN collection. The launch went really well, thanks everyone for your love & support!! xo Nini
