maternity vacay essentials

This weekend, Chase and I are heading to Scottsdale, AZ for a quick little getaway before the craziness (and fun!) of an OSJ spring/summer line launch, spring weddings, birthdays, and baby brother's arrival. We went to Scottsdale last year and loved it, so we decided to go back.  I can't wait to share our amenities, activities and some of my maternity outfits with you post-vacay.  More than anything, I'm just looking forward to sleeping in, eating breakfast  (my favorite meal!) slowwwwwly with Chase, and soaking in some sunshine poolside. Today, I thought I'd round up some essentials I'll be packing ((alongside some sunscreen and a floppy sunhat!)).

Free People Tunic: This flowy beauty will be perfect as a pool cover up and when we want to jet out for lunch, I can toss on some denim shorts or skinnies and be ready to go.

Sseko Bucket Bag: This will actually be baby brother's diaper bag, but I'm going to give it a little test-drive for our trip. It will be the only time it won't be filled with diapers,  toddler snacks, toy trucks and teething rings. 

Maternity Swimwear: I recently got this swimsuit top in mint because it actually covers my long torso/baby bump! It's a miracle. I mix and match with non-maternity bottoms and since I'll know not a soul at our hotel, I don't mind rocking a two piece to work on my tan ;) Not to mention, all women's swimwear is buy 1 get one 50% off right now online at target. Shop the sale here. 

Skinnies: A good ankle skinny jean is my go-to over shorts  - even in warm weather. These Paige ones look amazing, but I recently got these more affordable ones and they get the job done. Not my favorite jeans I've ever worn, but they'll do. ((my go-to maternity denim is this pair by AG. They're worth the price tag if you live in denim like I do))

Go-To Headwrap: OSJ headbands are perfect for going from poolside to a little shopping and a spring training game. 

Honorable mention: Kimono overlays for layering over these tanks with skinnies and my swimsuit. New fabrics available  soon at OSJ! 



  1. Thanks so much for posting these! I tried on that exact swimsuit in mint at the closest Target a couple weeks ago, and thought I'd stalk it online until it went on sale. Bummed that they don't sell the mint online!

    1. I'm selling this one on my shopohsweetjoy IG account! I forgot to pack it and then lost the receipt 😭

  2. Voir, Slater a co-fondĂ© Outerknown en 2015 avec le crĂ©ateur prolifique de vĂȘtements pour hommes John Moore,replique montre et ensemble, les deux ont crĂ©Ă© une marque de vĂȘtements pour hommes engagĂ©e dans la protection des ocĂ©ans tout en utilisant autant d'alternatives de fabrication respectueuses de l'environnement que possible - y compris des filets de pĂȘche recyclĂ©s et du vieux nylon surplus pour crĂ©er des produits comme des chemises en flanelle, des vestes Levi's et des shorts de surf.rolex pas cher Il n'est donc pas surprenant qu'une collaboration horlogĂšre avec une marque de vĂȘtements engagĂ©e dans la fabrication durable produise non seulement une sorte de signe de tĂȘte vers la protection des ressources naturelles,replique rolex mais aussi des accessoires spĂ©cifiques aux montres - et nous voici donc.
