Even the sale section is included in J.Crew’s 40% off Black Friday sale! (Sale section discount is 50% on some pieces). Yes, they’ve got the elevated basics (that I love to stock up on) covered but this year there are so. many. bold. surprises. I’m in love with their luxe bright wool coats, amazing shoes & statement jewelry.

When Shana asked us all to take on the cropped flare trend, I was more than a little afraid. My height doesn’t technically fall into the petite category, but my short little leggies definitely do! Let’s just say ankle length jeans typically go past my heels. For cropped jeans to actually look cropped on me, they’ve got to be around 24-25 inches long – the more common 27-28 inch cropped length is to the floor. More brands are starting to make petite sizes of all their jean cuts (shout out to J.Crew!) but designer brands haven’t really gotten the memo yet (except one pair I found that were cropped enough for petites in the regular size!). It took a bit of searching, but these cropped flares are actually amazingly comfortable…and I did not hate them! If your legs are vertically challenged too, you’re gonna want to see these.
Hi ladies! So I got a little excited about back to school shopping this year…for myself. Shopping for my kindergarten girl can be tricky since we have very different um, aesthetics? Her love of rainbow and animal print rivals mine for black and stripes. Living with her creative fashion choices must be rubbing off on me though, especially in the shoe department. While I’m not going to be pairing tutus and rain boots anytime soon these leopard high tops and silver booties are going to be on replay all fall. Want to see how I’m mixing interesting shoes with classic cooler weather pieces?
The end of February and beginning of March is my least favorite time of the year. As my fellow Midwestern residents can attest, these weeks are particularly bleak and uninspiring. It’s still very much winter, the snow shows little sign of letting up, and there are no more fun holidays to look forward to. The last thing I want to do is spend any more money on winter gear when Spring is so close, nor do I look forward to putting on the winter boots and coat I so excitedly purchased and wore only a few months ago.
So, I look to your #myeverydayedit Instagram posts to be inspired by fresh takes on styling. Here are the outfits I managed to pull together these last few weeks and also a collection of a just a few of your outfits that I found especially inspiring!
P.s. If you are new around here, #myeverydayedit is an Instagram tag we use at The Mom Edit to share our every day style. I promise, we are all nice gals and you should definitely consider joining in on the fun. (no pressure or anything) You can find us at: @ShanaChristine, @Scottiliz, @Camilledipoala, @Elletrain and @jessbobess.
So without further ado….
My Every Day Edit Outfit #1
fedora – RVCA ‘Sunner’ Wool Hat available at Nordstroms, $45.00
top – I bought this top about three years ago at Forever21 and had trouble finding a lace cutout top in this mustard color. The closest I came to finding something similar was this Little Creek Top from ShopRuche for $48.99
booties – Dolce Vita Jaeger Boots available on Amazon for $133.50 – $160.00
bag – Kerry ‘Fringe’ Crossbody Bag at Nordstroms, $59.95
Well shoot. I'm not currently nursing (and "post-partum" is stretching it)…but I'd wear any of these in a heartbeat.
Flower Hair Clip, ASOS, $15 (I'm picturing this tucked nonchalantly into a messy bun)
Free People Story Teller Tee, $68 (it's waffle knit – so cozy!)
Nixon Time-Teller Watch, $74 (I'm addicted to these bright, oversized watches)
AG Stevie Cuffed Jeans, $188 at Anthro
TOMS in Orange Palm Trees, $54 (the only thing better than palm trees would be…nothing. Nothing is better than palm trees.)
Lanston Asymmetic Top, $95 at Shopbop (pooch-hiding, nursing-friendly drapiness at its best right here)
Chewbeads Red Bracelet, $17 (A teething-friendly bracelet that I would actually wear…)
Marc Jacobs Medium Tate Tote, $198 (I swore by these when my little guys were young…and I'm still using them. These nylon, washable bags rock my diaper-baggin' world.)
Tieks Unmellow Yellow, $195 (aka my favorite flats ever)

Lily Jade Diaper Bag, $260 for another few days (then will shoot up to $335)

Happy Monday! (already?!?!)
Hi Shana! I can't explain to you how much I love your blog – it's always a high point in my day when I see you've put up a new post! I was hoping you could help me with a style problem… I just got these Clarks Rosepoint booties:
I think they're super cute, but they're not really my usual style and I'm not sure how to wear them. Normally my style leans towards kind of casual boho tomboy (that's probably not a thing, I know) and these booties are pretty ladylike. Also I almost always wear more rugged, chunky shoes – moto boots, chucks… because I'm comfortable in them and I feel like they help balance out my, uh, ample…?… thighs and hips. I don't want to look like my curves are tapering down to tiny pointy toes. Right? I'm pretty sure you could make anything look cool, can you help me? thanks so much, and thanks for everything you do for all of us mamas!
Rachel, I love this question. I have very similar booties and I struggle with the same thing. I find them to be…too precious sometimes. You know? Yes. You do.
Ok – so here's a few (thigh-friendly) ways to TOMBOY UP a sweet little laced bootie.
While I was home in June, my sister and I had a discussion about crop tops. She was pro, I was…meh. Until I remembered that I had one. (It was on clearance for $4.99 at Ann Taylor. Reason enough, right?)
And actually, I do like this top. You've seen it before here with a high-waisted maxi skirt….and a high-waist something, I think, is the key.
(The high waist helps tame a squishy belly. Really. It's like Spanx.)
Ok, Mamas. First things first. Wanna see my new boobs?
Their perkiness is beyond my wildest dreams. I may never need a bra again! I mean YES – the shirt is strategically covering a whole mess of bandages and scars and my one remaining nipple is sorta facing the wrong direction….but all of that is fixable in time. Pretty cleavage for the win!
And after this awful, horrible month…I really needed a win.
Now – onto the next announcement!
I am honored to introduce Bradamant, a new line of bodyshirts.

Peer into the stylish minds of REVOLVE's editors as they divulge their favorite fall trends.
Well, hell yeah. Bring it. Know what caught my eye?
I mean OK: my first reaction may have been a small sob acknowledging that my abs will never look that way again. (Or, uh, previously…but whatever.)
But then – THEN – as Mo Williams says in Knuffle Bunny
…."Trixie realized something."
THOSE ARE BOOTCUT! BOOTCUT DENIM IS RIGHT THERE! RIGHT! THERE!
Cropped, yes…one might even call them bootcut in disguise, but that is definitely some bootcut denim. And since no child of the 90's fears a scissored hem….I decided to make my own.
Hello, crappy bootcuts in my Goodwill pile. Come and play with me.
