Bohemian Shirtdress
“This is the ideal desk-to-dinner dress that you can wear over and over during pregnancy. The exclusive wishbone print is from my Lucky Charm series designed in our Tribeca lab to make you feel as special and as lucky as you should during this amazing time in your life.”

Maria Blouse
“I love this classic in a beautiful color to quickly pull together an outfit. Plus, no need to dry clean so you can hurl it in the wash – anything to make life that much easier!”

Newberry Blazer
“I’ve always loved blazers and during each of my pregnancies I’ve found they make me feel so pulled together even on those crazy days when all I can manage to do is yank on a pair of leggings and an oversized T-shirt and some ballet flats (which was most days!).”

Best Dress
“I named this the ‘Best Dress’ because it is the best dress! It’s so versatile and flattering, a must have for any maternity wardrobe.

London Shopper Leisure
“I love a good diaper bag undercover! It has every asset a diaper bag needs in the way of pockets, washable interior, stroller straps and changing pad but, and this is a big but, it doesn’t look like a diaper bag!”

A Day in the Life of Rosie Pope: Pregnancy Guru, Mom & Much More

You may have discovered Rosie Pope on Bravo’s reality show Pregnant in Heels, but the pregnancy guru already had a major mommy following, and deservedly so. From her Rosie Pope Maternity clothing line (on Gilt today) and stores to her MomPrep education sessions and Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy book, Pope manages to guide and inspire countless moms-to-be — all while raising four adorable kids under the age of five. How does she do it all? We asked and she revealed what a day in her life looks like — which typically includes pancakes, school runs, meetings, trains, lots of running, and wine.

Rosie Pope

5:00 am: Wake up to feed Bridget [nine weeks old] and shower and get ready before my other babes get up. I also make an espresso iced coffee in my favorite glass tumbler and take some long sips!

6:00 am: Between 6:00 and 7:00 my other kids wake. James [five years old] is always first and he likes to dive into talking about his dreams, then comes Vivienne [two years old] who plunges straight for her milk and then Wellington [three years old] sleepily searches for his pancakes! I always make a big breakfast for them and try and sit down in all the chaos so we can really connect before the day gets going.

8:30 am:  School drop off – everyone comes along for the ride!

9:00 am: I take the train into New York City now that we are officially in the burbs. Bridget comes with me and as she snoozes I catch up on all the emails that have already flooded in.

10:00 am: My first duty at the office usually involves working on both my maternity and baby collections from design through to fabric, fit, and new innovations that I want to try.

12:00 pm: My husband and I work together and so we try and spend time each day to connect and work on strategy for the projects we have coming up and would like to pursue so we can be as productive as possible during the day.

1:00 pm: I go for a quick run to clear my head and give me the energy I need for the rest of the day. Our offices are near the river so it’s a lovely run.

2:00 pm: Each day is different, but the afternoon is generally filled with filming, creating MomPrep educational content and a lot of running (that’s the theme of my day) from one appointment to the other, desperately trying to fit it all in before my train home that Bridget and I normally run like mad people to catch!

6:00 pm: Walk in the door for dinner, baths, homework, stories, and as many cuddles as I can fit in!

8:00 pm: Everyone is asleep as I have to admit I pour myself a nice glass of white wine. My husband and I then sit down to dinner (he cooks) and we dive back into work as we don’t spend much time together during the day it’s important to connect and work on things at night.

11:00 pm: Sleep!

Rosie Pope: Summer Maternity Style Tips

Right now, one of the hottest topics for moms-to-be is how they’ll beat the heat come summer. Contrary to popular belief, your bump isn’t a style barrier. We chatted with maternity extraordinaire and Mommy IQ author Rosie Pope — she gave us the 411 on looking chic and comfy all season long. Check out her tips, then shop the looks here.

Gilt: Which colors and patterns are in for spring and summer?
Rosie Pope: Kelly green and emerald green are everywhere, just like they are in women’s fashion. Nautical stripes are big, and this goes against the maternity grain. People often think stripes make them look bigger, but that’s only true if they’re tiny and close together. Look for pieces where the stripes are two inches apart, and it will create an optical illusion — your bump will look smaller! Also, islet fabrics are a huge maternity trend. Normally this type of fabric would be hard to pull off (because it’s stiff), but if the lining underneath is stretchy, you and your bump will be stylish and comfortable.
