30 weeks + a White Plum Giveaway

tunic - c/o White Plum
boots - Carlos Santana
diaper bag - c/o Lily Jade
leggings - Old Navy


Is the hand on the bump too much? I think it is but Simon said I needed something to define the belly and because I didn't have a belt in my bag of tricks ... tranquil hand on bell it was. I won't do it again unless I pair it with a loving and downcast gaze.

I had high hopes for the White Plum tunics at 30 weeks along and sick of allofmyclothesthatbarelyfit but didn't expect to fall so in love with the ones they sent. I've written quite a few review/giveaway posts in my blogging time and I'm sure they get a little old to read but if you are a female you have to know how great White Plum's Stella Tunic is for maternity, postpartum, and nopartum wear. I am usually a pretty devout Old Navy maternity tunic wearer but all of a sudden they are making them about six inches shorter and the material is really thin and the fit in the shoulders is off and awful.

Enter the White Plum Stella Tunic.

It is everything that my tunic dreams are made of and more. It's a great length that I don't feel is inappropriate to wear with leggings, the material is thick but not suffocatingly hot, it doesn't cling to unsightly lumpage, and they wash really well (no shrinking down to Julia's size). If you see me in the flesh in the next 10-12 weeks ... spoiler alert!! I'll be wearing one of these.

White Plum sent this black Stella Tunic and an ivory Favorite Tunic (that is just a teeeeeny tiny bit shorter than the Stella Tunic but still equally awesome and easily belted with jeans ... or so I tell myself every other day) and they are single-handedly making up the current maternity wardrobe for my top half at the present moment. If you're dying over these freezing temperatures like I am and are wanting to breathe some new life into the old boots and leggings getup .... look no further. Pregnant or not.

If you're in the market for a tunic or some leggings or Palazzo pants or want to make a lady friend's life (pregnant, postpartum, or not) ... please use code CAMPPATTON20 to take 20% off all orders through March 5th. I asked them how tacky it would be to use the code myself because I'm jonesing for a few more colors of the tunics myself. They gave me permission because they are kind souls.

It was fun to discover that White Plum was started by a fellow mom in need of a creative outlet who completely understands the need for mom-friendly but still on-trend clothing in a mom jeans vs. Forever XXI world. I've had the pleasure of working with a lot of brands and I would be remiss not to quickly mention how above and beyond the call of duty the White Plum staff has gone (being lightning fast with personable emails, sending leggings for Julia and a pair of Palazzo pants that I can't wait for my postpartum bod to slither into this summer and more!! without asking for a thing in return, and being mercifully understanding when this post got pushed back a little bit when things at Chez Patton got a little busy) ... it's pretty rare these days and everything has been so appreciated.

Let's get down to brass tacks here ... how about a giveaway??


Yes.

You know how we do with Rafflecopter around here. Thanks for reading. Thanks for playing. And many thanks to White Plum for being genuinely awesome.

  11. How do you stay so tiny while pregnant!? It seems you only gain weight in the tummy and even your tummy is small. I'm 24 weeks and already feel like it's almost time :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am pregnant and hate all of my clothes currently. Winter-stretching-itchy skin is making me bonkers when combined with tight fitting clothing, and I have two little ones that would find it incredibly odd if mama started walking around in her birthday suit. I am thinking a tunic might be in order for me!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  79. Island Coral Palazzo Pants are my fav.

    ReplyDelete
  80. All of those light, springy scarves are singing my name after a long, cold New England winter. I love the tunics, but if the 5'7" models are wearing a small...this 5'2" shopper could probably use one as a tent.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Love their stuff! The stripes ahoy tees are adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  82. The mosaic infiniti scarf is super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Those tunics look lovely. I recently bought two Target tunics and was really disappointed with them. They have now been relegated to pajamas, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Big fan of the Dream Tunic, but the practical mother in me (who am I kidding, I am 3/4 prac-ti-cal-ista) would choose the Aztec Maxi Dress, Heidi Maxi and/or the Favorite Tunic. Because virtually all my wardrobe transitions maternity to nursing and back, aaand maternity, nursing and back etc etc :) Also, maxis while pregnant means no shaving legs while one can't bend. I hope choosing three (four) favourites still counts as an entry!

    ReplyDelete
