Mom Street Style: Susannah Glammed Up Her Momiform


Readers, meet Susannah.  She wrote:

Hi Shana – Just wanted to say thank you for the Glam Up Your Momiform post.  I am due to move from Sydney Australia to Hong Kong in about 4 days with my husband and two children… and so almost all of my clothes are on a big boat in the middle of the ocean.  But a last minute surprise farewell at a moderately hip japanese restaurant necessitated that I find something to wear (that wasn't a t-shirt and shorts).  I had read your blog that morning and managed to find jeans, shirt, necklace and pumps.  It wasn't colourful and festive like your outfit – but it did the trick!  

Thanks so much – your blog is really incredibly helpful for those of us who have ZERO interest in clothes shopping but like looking somewhat up-to-date.  I have told countless friends and they have all gleaned something from reading your articles: better jeans, how to wear ankle boots and nursing friendly fashion.


Whoa, girl.  You look seriously amazing.  And the nuetral pallette really, really works.  I'm starting a round of the slow clap right now.  Mamas, feel free to join in:  clap…..clap….CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP

Susannah, thank you so much for taking the time to snap a pic and sending it on.  I love seeing how our styling tips get translated…and serve as a fresh dose of inspiration for all of us.

    Wow. I LOVE the buttoned up collar with the necklace on the front of the shirt. I love a good button down, but I’ve never tried wearing them like that! Thanks for giving me something to try the next time I get dressed up!

    You look great! And I second what Shelly said about the buttoned up collar and necklace. I would not have thought to do that, but it works. I usually go the hussy route and unbutton MORE. 😉

    Love everything about how this outfit is put together. The shade of the jeans, the turn ups and the nude pumps give it such a classic yet very modern look with the necklace. Also – it doesn’t hurt to look like a young Lauren Hutton does it like Maggie said above.

    I’m glad you reminded me now that I have a statement necklace which I haven’t looked at in 2 years..
