29-weeks pregnant with lucky #3 (a boy!), Monica + Andy's Director of Events and Brand Experiences Sam Berngard is the perfect mama to kick off our new series on bump style. (She's had a minute to practice!) Sam's maternity formula: a mix of distressed jeans, fun prints, cozy jumpers, and a silk headband to tie it all together—plus a hot pink mani. Check out her week of style inspo (whether you're bumping or not!) ahead.


'Nothing I have on in this pic is maternity, which is why my tummy is starting to peek out! The pants are ASOS (but not maternity) and I’m wearing a H&M turtleneck. I literally wear LeLe Sadoughi silk headbands weekly—Monica set a trend in our office wearing them and now I am addicted! My booties are Sigerson Morrison, my favorite brand of boots!'

'I visited my best friend in Nashville and we went bowling at Pinewood Social, our favorite spot. I’m wearing a Comme Des Garcons ‘PLAY’ t-shirt and AG jeans from Pea in the Pod. These are my all-time favorite maternity jeans that I have worn through all of my pregnancies. They're amazing—they're comfortable and actually stay up which is super impressive!'


'Lunch at Summer House Santa Monica with my girlfriends! The jumpsuit is from my favorite Australian maternity line LEGOE and I paired it with an old Madewell flannel, Chloe boots and Janessa Leon hat (my go to when my blow out has expired for the week).'


'This is at the doctor’s office for a checkup. I live in these Z Supply overalls (actually, even when I am not pregnant) and & Other Stories sweater—a go to when I am in NYC.'


'This is my favorite purchase of my pregnancy so far. It’s a Free People dress but it’s so magical because you can unbutton it to become an open long blouse or beach cover up and it’s going to fit after pregnancy as well. I got it at an adorable boutique in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood—Native Cloth. The owner aways handpicks the best things!'


'I am addicted to pilates—particularly Page One Pilates in the West Loop. I try to go before or after work at least two times a week. It’s a great work out and stretch while pregnant!'


'Family night in our house is our favorite night. We put on PJs early and dance by the fire before bed or read—but really we dance! My PJs are by Madewell and Billie’s wearing Monica and Andy's On the Go One-Piece. '
