{ My top summer pregnancy fashion essentials + $75 gift card giveaway }

First of all I want to start off by saying Happy belated mother's day to all the mamas out there. I have been a fur baby mom for the past few years but this year I have a little life growing inside of me and in just a few weeks I'll officially be a baby mama. This was such a special weekend for me full of mother-to be cards and lots and lots of flowers. I got to spend the day with my hubby and both of our families. It was also a bittersweet weekend because Cody and I decided to trade in my car for something bigger to work better for our new little family. I absolutely loved my 2 door coupe but our stroller didn't fit in the trunk and there was no way I could get a car seat in the back seat. To make life easier and more functional we decided to upgrade to a small suv. Although I am bummed having to give up my fun little sports car, I am so excited for this new car and the adventures we will get to go on in it as a family of 3. We are officially ready for baby Roman, but hopefully he still decides to cook for a few more weeks!

Anyways, I recently collaborated with PinkBlush and I wanted to share with you guys some of my pregnancy summer essentials. These essentials would absolutely also work even if you're not pregnant and just want to be comfy, stylish, and cute! 

The MAXI DRESS

Omg maxi dresses are the best! This one I picked out from PinkBlush is so beautiful and fits the bump perfectly. I love how maxi dresses are so easy and effortless to style yet they make your look totally put together. If it was a little chillier I would add a cute little denim jacket on top. This dress is a maternity gown but I know it will also be a piece I will be wearing even after the baby because it fits so comfortably! For size reference I did order it in a size small. I love how the length on this dress works well with both sandals and wedges. I went for a more casual look and paired it with my new favorite pair of white Marc Fisher sandals. Oh and btw how gorgeous are these peonies I got from my mom for Mother's Day?

CUTE & COMFY Robes

Okay, so I kind of live in robes lately. When I was sent this  maternity robe from PinkBlush I nearly squealed. It is so soft and comfy and I have already decided it is getting packed to come with us in my hospital bag. I love the floral print and the lace trim, it is seriously the cutest. As I said before I literally live in robes especially now being 33 weeks pregnant. Any moment that I get to be home, you bet my clothes are immediately off and I'm comfy in my robe! I know that even after pregnancy this robe will be something I will be wearing all the time. It will be perfect for nursing and just throwing on quickly after hopping out of the shower. I like for my robes and pjs to fit a little bigger so I ordered this  one here in a size medium.

THE EVERYTHING Kimono

For all my preggos out there let me tell ya, kimonos are your secret weapon. I probably have at least 10 kimonos in my closet right now that I alternate between on a daily basis. They are so easy to style and dress up any look. I love wearing them with fitted dresses, shorts and a tee, or a pair of jeans, fitted top and a cute pair of heels/wedges like the ones in the photos below. Something that is awesome about kimonos is that you don't have to get them from maternity stores if your pregnant. This kimono was also sent to me from PinkBlush and I think it is currently the cutest one I own. It is a maternity kimono however I will continue wearing it even after my pregnancy as well to help hide some of those postpartum insecurities I'm sure I will have. Another great way you can wear a kimono this summer is over a swim suit if your going to the pool/beach! I think kimonos are so versatile and the possibilities of styling them are endless! If you like the one I'm wearing it's under $50 and you can find it here
