We seem to have a baby boom in Del Ray!  Although we don’t carry maternity clothes, so many expectant mothers come into Kiskadee shopping for clothes they can wear during their pregnancy and beyond. Baby bumps and fashion can cause a conundrum especially when an expectant mom enters the second trimester.  You come to the realization you no longer have a waist and your previously flat belly turned into the swell of a baby bump.  We enjoy sharing the excitement of a new life entering the world and helping new and expectant moms find fashionable styles for their busy lives.

Let’s be real…your top priority is to spend every moment with your much loved little person.  And if that little person is a toddler, and will soon have a sibling, you are pushing swings and climbing jungle gyms as much as possible prior to the new baby arriving.  A romper is a must for all playground activity!  It has all the right places covered so if your toddler tugs there will be no wardrobe malfunctions! The soft material and loose waistband is not only comfortable but will accommodate your growing belly.  And it will be perfect after pregnancy while you are active with not one, but two (or more ) children at the park.

Work is a must for many expectant moms.  Many times the key to avoid purchasing maternity clothes is in the fabric.  There is no need to dress like a tent!  Our Taylor dresses have excellent designs to expand your work repetorie.  It has the perfect amount of stretch and is very forgiving as your body changes.  This sheath is a perfect example.  Very classic and comfortable, it looks great on its own or on trend with a white linen blazer or sweater.

Summer in the Washington, D.C. area can be brutal with the high heat and humidity and it can be especially hard on an expectant mom.  No one wants material clinging to her body during a heat wave!  Keeping cool is essential.   Free flowing dresses are multipurpose for an expectant mom…they are loose fitting and breezy…the list goes on and on.  Useful for errands or a rare lunch date with your gal pals, you will reach for these dresses over and over again pre- and post-pregnancy!

Let’s not forget about hubby.  He may feel a bit neglected or left out as your body changes.  Special date nights are essential prior to your new arrival!  Nothing is lovelier, more elegant, and not to mention, more fun, than this beautiful aqua slip dress.  The spaghetti straps and silky pleats harken back to another era.  Add heels or sandals, a seashell pendant, clutch, and you and your husband are off to a night on the town!
