The Nines by HATCH at Target

Monday, October 25, 2021









Hatch Collection has been on my radar since before I got pregnant with Eloise. I actually collaborated with them back in 2018 {seen here} and got this navy jumpsuit that I wore all the time, including my first pregnancy {here}. I invested in a few pieces during my first pregnancy because I love the timeless style so much. I was VERY excited when I learned they would be doing a line with Target and have purchased a few items since. Their Fall 2021 Collection is just LOVELY and I was able to partner up with them again to showcase a couple looks. 

First up is this lovely raspberry leopard set, the minute I saw it I knew I would be wearing it non-stop. On these last few weeks of pregnancy all I want is comfort. The terry fabric is great because it's not heavy and hot {which is my constant state during third trimester}. I plan on wearing this on a road trip I have coming up and post-partum as well. The color and print is trendy without being overwhelming and the fit is great! Not too loose that it would make me look bigger and not so tight where I would feel constricted. I am wearing a size Small and would say runs TTS. 

Paired it with my super comfortable Gola Glitter Sneakers and Ray Bans for an easy weekend look. 

*The sweatshirt is not available on the Target website yet but I will update the link as soon as is up.

A Dressier Fall Outfit

Friday, October 8, 2021







Finding a pretty and comfortable maternity dress in a dressier style is no easy task so I was very excited when I discovered Isabella Oliver; a British ethical brand that focuses on being sustainable. I partnered up with them to show you a few styles over the next few weeks and this navy dress is one of my favorite ones. I know I'll be wearing it post partum {hello buttons for breastfeeding!} and beyond. I love the front tie because it allows me to adjust the fit of dress as needed. It is machine washable and fits true to size. Very light material that is perfect for warm fall days and running around town with my toddler. Paired it here with my gingham sandals for a pop of color on my outfit. Can't wait to show you how I style it this winter once my baby is born.

My Ideal Travel Outfit

Wednesday, September 22, 2021








Traveling while pregnant and with an active toddler is a bit of a challenge. I am currently working on a post focused on tips to making traveling with a small child a bit easier; but for today let’s focus on mom’s outfit. I’ve always been a fan of wearing pants and closed toes shoes when going through an airport, the more covered I am the better I feel {specially during the pandemic}. I find airports and airplanes very chilly so I typically dress in layers. During summer I keep it light with a cotton jacket -the like Madewell one I am wearing on this post- or a thin cardigan. 

Finding comfortable and cute maternity pants is not easy so I was very excited when I found these green linen pants from Pea In The Pod. They fit comfortably under the belly and stay put no matter how much I move or sit. The t-shirt is by Splendid and the length is perfect for a growing belly.  The backpack is by Tory Burch and it’s the perfect addition to any traveling outfit. It fits SO MUCH and functions as my purse and diaper bag. It is nylon which makes it easily wipeable when the inevitable spill happens. This combo of pants, top, layer and big bag is my typical go-to when I travel. It allows me to move freely while keeping my body temperature in check {and looking presentable}. 

Happy first week of fall! Can’t wait to share a few more maternity outfits before the baby arrives. Currently 31 weeks and counting!

xx, Nicole

Something Navy During My 3rd Trimester

Wednesday, September 15, 2021






Jumpsuit // Earrings // Sandals {similar}

As weeks go by and I'm getting heavier I prioritize comfort on the way I dress. When Pea In The Pod reached out about doing a partnership I was very excited when I saw this sweat-pant onesie as part of their selection. It is such an easy outfit and I love I can style it with sandals or sneakers and a cardigan (as seen below during my trip to California earlier this month). Fits true to size and the adorable flower print on the navy background it's perfect for Fall...now if only the weather would cooperate! 

Only 10 more weeks of pregnancy's for me, I'm officially 30 weeks today! Can't wait to show you a few more bump-friendly outfits before it's over. 

Much love from Austin, 
N.
