Today I have teamed up with 4 ladies to do a special collaboration! We are each showing you different takes on maternity style. I don’t even like those words – maternity style. I think there are so many options today that it is easier than ever to be pregnant and still dress stylish (not that I am going to feel like it everyday though.) So whether you’re pregnant, hoping to be soon or done with kiddos, I think you could still get some good inspiration, because each of these looks can be recreated for someone who is expecting or someone who isn’t. Make sure you check out Taylor from Little Blonde Book, Becky from Cella Jane and Alison from Chain Strap Purse to see their outfit details. These ladies have blogs that I have visited regularly for a while now, and they also happen to be pregnant and still gorgeous and fashionable! Today I wore the cutest little peter pan collared dress from Expect. You might also remember this Expect dress I wore just a couple weeks ago here. The designer, Annika, is so talented and sweet, and she even named this dress Laura. What I love most about this dress, aside from how cute and comfortable it is, is that I think I will be able to wear it for quite a while. To start your week off right, the 4 of us have also teamed up with Annika to give away $100 to use at her Etsy shop, Expect. The greatest thing about her shop is that everything is handmade by her, and she not only has maternity clothing, she also makes baby clothing, shoes and home goods. She really has something for everyone. You could say I have a soft spot for this, but I also need this, this and this! To enter, just use the rafflecopter below. What would you choose from the Etsy shop?

You look so happy here! Congratulations! Love the dress.
i just adore the "life is sweet" hoop art
Your outfit is perfect! Congratulations! So excited about being able to be prego AND fashionable. 🙂
Looks like she has lots of great options in her store. Having just had a baby last week named Jackson, I might have to snag a pair of those Jackson pants for him, especially with all those super cute patterns.
LOVE this!! I'm 25 weeks and love all the "maternity style" (agree, hate those words!) fashion inspiration! Congratulations!!
This looks comfy
What a fun shop. I love the Laura dress and the cutesy boots are adorable!
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Can't wait to see how you style your soon-to-be bump!
You do not look pregnant at all but you are certainly glowing!
I love the JULIA in pink dress! 🙂 I am 30 weeks pregnant today so it will be nice to have a dress for the warmer weather coming up!
I love the Vanessa in Navy dress. Despite it only being April and I'm only 14 weeks I'm already complaining about how hot it is! It's going to be a long summer 🙂
Your dress is so adorable!
I would have to say I'd probably get a dress. Not which one, I'm not sure because they are all adorable! I'm 28 weeks now and the Texas heat will be beginning soon!

I agree that maternity style should be just as cute as regular style. My biggest problem so far is that cute typically equals expensive.
Great giveaway for us pregger bloggers 😉 thanks guys!
Congrats!!! That's so exciting! Can't wait to watch your maternity style over the next few months! Hope you are getting a little more pep in your step now that you are into your 2nd tri!
I think those Beatrice tops are adorable! I can definitely see Miss Ella rocking the Little Mermaid one 🙂
I love the tops! And the little hoop works are so cute and would look awesome for the gallery wall I have planned for Gracie's room! As for pregnancy clothes, check out pinkblush.com I LOVE 95% of everything they have. If I was rich, I would buy one of everything 🙂
Such cute outfits! The little girl outfits are adorable!
I love the BEATRICE in flag/monster print dress! So adorable.

Those dresses are cute! The Jessica in Maroon or the Vanessa in Navy would be my pick 🙂
I hear you, maternity style is not fun to think about, but we are lucky so many of today's trends are functional for pregnancy. I'm 28 weeks and a lot of my flowy tops I already owned are working perfectly! It's also always nice to find cute and flattering maternity clothes like Expect. She has some adorable baby stuff too!
Hi! Super cute shop! I would get the Beatrice in Pink Butterfly/Purple Flip Flop Print Dress. Also the Ice Cream Fabric "Yum" Embroidery Hoop Art & Ice Cream Dessert Fabric "Life is Sweet" Embroidery Hoop Art. So much fun!! Thank-you
