Summer is here in the beautiful PacNW, and with the temperatures warming and the rain subsiding (for now), I’ve been able to bring out some of the beautiful and versatile maternity wear I received from JoJo Maman Bebe’s Summer collection. There is nothing like being pregnant through a long, hot summer to make you reconsider the essentials in your wardrobe (as well as consider retiring to the beach!).
While I have reviewed children’s clothing for JoJo Maman Bebe previously, this was my first chance to try out some of their maternity clothing, and because I am such a fan of their kids collections, I was so excited for the opportunity to try something on myself!
I received the following items:
What a sweet little, 1950’s-inspired swimsuit! The halter style offers full support, and the two-piece tankini style is practical and stylish. As with most swimwear, JoJo Maman Bebe recommends rinsing immediately after use to prolong the life of the pieces.
This oriental-style floral dress is so elegant, and the material is so soft and silky. As someone who prefers sleeves, these flowy, half-length ones are ideal. This style also transitions to postpartum nursing Mamas with concealed panel openings in the front. I gotta say, I just felt way more glamorous than usual while wearing this gorgeous dress. Summer garden party, anyone?
This dress is so comfortable. The material is soft and stretchy, yet not see-through, a rarity these days (especially with an expanding belly!). I am so excited to try it the way it’s styled on the website, with leggings and boots- more of a Fall look. Currently, it’s 87-degrees Fahrenheit, so I am rocking this dress with some strappy gladiator-style sandals. Did I mention this also accommodates nursing Mamas with hidden panel openings? I love the versatility! My only criticism would be that I’d love it even more if it had pockets.
This is one of the softest, comfiest shirts I own. Love the bat-wing sleeve style, hidden panel openings for nursing, and mid-hip length. I’ll definitely be incorporating this into my regular, non-maternity wardrobe. A great casual top that can be layered with a cute cardigan and taken straight into Fall.
This bright white, fully-lined, 100% cotton blouse makes me want to go to some sort of fiesta party; the embroidered floral pattern at the neckline is vibrant as well as beautifully detailed. I love the 3/4 length on the sleeves, and the sweet dobby pattern.
This black and white blouse has been a staple in my work wardrobe since I received it. It pairs beautifully with bright trousers or dresses up classic blue jeans.
This is another that I incorporated into my work wardrobe. A fun, fresh blue, the color really works for all seasons, it’s the same blousy style as above.
In addition to these maternity looks, I also received two cute new children’s pieces:
I’ve been a huge fan of Jojo Maman Bebe’s clothing for children for several years now, and this beautiful girls Cockatiel applique dress doesn’t disappoint. 100% cotton gingham, with festive cockatiels along the hem, my daughter wore this on Easter Sunday, and it will take her through the summer. I love the attention to detail in the picot stitching and button-adjustable straps.
This adorable blouse has a sweet cap sleeve and picot edge stitching. Airy and light cotton, this will take us through summer. I love that this style adds a little bit of fancy paired with shorts or leggings.
I am happy to report from past experience that I know these items will hold up beautifully over time, and I’m so glad to see that JoJo Maman Bebe continues to hold to their high standards for quality and style.
