About The Mom Edit

Founded in 2008 by Shana Draugelis, The Mom Edit is a shopping and lifestyle website with a candid take on modern parenting.  We translate trends into something wearable, get overly excited about cute shoes that are comfortable and walkable, try on the scariest of swimsuits, and maybe write a few odes to well-fitting denim.  (We specialize in haiku.)

Along the way, we try our best to keep it real.

The Mom Edit is more than just a website.  We’re a growing community of style experimenters and shopping enablers, of personal style seekers, of moms who play (and travel) hard….yet want to look good doing it.   We acknowledge that one person’s definition of “cool” may be different than our own, and we celebrate these differences.  The Mom Edit community is pro-women, pro-nursing, pro-bottle feeding, pro-co-sleeping, pro-sleep schedules.  We are Team Mom, no matter the race, gender, religion, or parenting style.  We are Team Mom even in cases where the path to motherhood was tough, or didn’t happen at all.

In addition to easy, everyday style for moms, we cover the occasional date night style, workwear, guy style, kid everything (books, toys, clothes), family-friendly home design, and travel….with a lighthearted dose of reality (and breast cancer – Shana is a survivor) thrown in. 

But it’s the WE, the whole family and community, who get us through this crazy thing called life.

So get comfy, stay a while, and join the discussion.  Because if you’ve found something chic and comfy?  That’s Mom Edit GOLD. 

And if you just want to share some mama-love and support with others? 

Well, that’s…EVERYTHING. Xo



Shana founded The Mom Edit in 2008. She lives with the love of her life (his name's Mike) and their two crazy boys in downtown Philadelphia. She loves a good styling challenge (her engineering side shows eventually), appreciates kindness, and usually picks scotch over wine, sneakers over stilettos, and shorts known as denim-underwear, always.

Meet Scotti, the contributor with our most-loved beauty advice. When Scotti's not giving us the scoop on the latest products and techniques she's dishing out some of TME's most loved looks. It's not easy to look so cute in the U.P. of Michigan (i.e. crazy cold and snow) but she always makes it happen.

Meet Laura! She's a reader turned contributor and we couldn't be happier to have her as part of the team. Her fun, creative style is, as she says, "somewhere between Madewell and Joan Jett" (YES.) and she delivers some mean dressing room selfies so keep an eye out for those. Fun fact? She loves getting her hair cut and we love to see what she has up her sleeve.

Wife, mama of 3, true believer in the importance of finding meaningful ways to stay sane(-ish) throughout motherhood, such as style blogging, making absurd videos on Instagram & hiding in the guest room. It's not always easy, but when it's hard...there's always Netflix. *peace sign*

Linzi (or 'Linz' as we like to call her) is our reigning Queen of Comfort Shoes but we suspect you'll love even more about her style than what's on her feet. You can also look to her for everything Kids - from the best toys to the cutest functional coats, she's got the well-researched recs and we love her for it.

We met Tiarra through one of our #TMEStyleChallenges and never looked back. She loves to mix it up with unique, affordable pieces and she's not afraid of a fashion risk. When she's not scoping out the latest trends for TME, you can find her soaking up some much-loved family time in Ohio.

Alexis is our resident nerd and watchful editor. In addition to styling our syntax and fact-checking brand capitalization (ahem, rag & bone, and [BLANKNYC]), she’s also whipping up editorial guidelines, strategizing social media and conjuring up new projects. With her own personal style (boots, dresses, scarves), she doesn’t consider herself a fashionista, but she is keeping us #well #woke #sustainable #empathetic #inclusive #current, #down-to-earth and #open-minded; her wisdom ranges from yoga home practice and Feng Shui-ing an apartment, to living overseas and momming while black. As the single mother of an extrovert, she, like Julieta, often ‘forgets’ to come out of the bathroom.
