Readers, we can’t thank you enough for your support this year. And while we always strive to do better, I’m pretty proud of the content we created this year. My goal for The Mom Edit has always been to be helpful. To create content that is really and truly useful — and to be a nonjudgemental, fearless place for others to try and find their own sense of style….to find, really — a piece of themselves.

As a fun little look back, here are our top articles from 2018, based on traffic. I’d love some feedback — which of these would you love to see come back in 2019? Which of these were your favorites, and which ones did you think missed the mark?

1. Our Nordstrom Anniversary Sales Coverage

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!
According to numbers, you guys love our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage, especially our dressing room selfies. We’re glad our hard work pays off, because if there is ONE THING that has us re-evaluating our life choices, it’s this darn sale. We literally work around the clock, several days on end. (Fun fact: it always falls on Gwen’s birthday. At best she gets a grunted, ‘happy birthday’ from me and then Back. To. Work.)

2. The Swim Shop

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!

Is there anything worse than shopping for swim? NOPE. Glad you find our edited list (and dressing room selfies) helpful. We’ve always focused on cute one-piece suits (and rash guards)…but I’d love to hear your thoughts on including more bikinis next year.

3. The Most Wearable Fall Trends

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!

I don’t always do this article, I typically save it for years when I think the Fall trends are different enough to be worth talking about. How did I do? I think most of these are still on point, but I’d love to hear your thoughts. (Except for the chick on FB who called my outfits “hideous” and the fall trends “laughable.” I’ve heard about enough from you, THANKS.)

4. The Best Skinny Jeans For You

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!

5. What To Wear In NYC

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!
Funny, this was one of my favorites, too. Probably because it involves sneakers and black jeans and basically everything I do really wear everyday.

6. The Best Flip Flop Alternatives

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!
Tiarra isn’t the only one still trying to ditch her flip-flops. Can I see a show of hands of those of us who refuse to part with them? [S raises hand]

7. A Spring Mom-i-Form

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!
Cam rocks the simple-and-chic vibe. This was one of my favorites, too.

9. Everyday Dresses That Only Look Fancy

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!
These are always such fun posts to work on — who doesn’t like a flirty, twirly dress that is also comfortable. Again, I’d love to hear some feedback on how I did — anything you’d like me to change for next year?

10. The Best Shoes For Moms Right Now

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!
One thing became very clear this year: you guys LOVE Linzi and her comfort shoes. (And so do I.)

11. 3 Swim Looks For Spring Break

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!More swim coverage, but this one included complete looks — the suit, the cover-up, the shoes, the bag, the sunnies. More like this next year?

12. I Found The Perfect High-rise Jeans

It was expansive year for TME & our top posts show it — from comfort shoes & tired-mom makeovers to family-style eating & family separation. 2018 — DONE!

  1. Re: 11, yes more like this! I’d love some vacation capsule wardrobe posts for various climates that include swim looks.

    Thanks for everything ladies, these were some of my favorites for sure. Happy Nee Year!

  2. “What to Wear in NYC” was my introduction to you — somehow it popped up on my feed (because FB reads your mind and I *needed* to know what to wear in NYC) and I was hooked. LOVE that post — I reread it often just because. Hard to narrow down what else I love about you all, as it’s everything. So thankful for your exhaustive Nordstrom sales work, weekly sales, and the way you flow with the current seasons and trends. Your holiday coverage has been ON POINT — I’ve loved coming here to find something festive for me or for gifts.

    Skinny jeans charts and bathing suits were for me, more technical and less of a draw, but clearly others feel differently! I love your posts with a sense of place, seeing you girls at a holiday party, traveling, in a pretty bar on a night out. Shana your writing is beautiful, recently I loved the post about your dance recital night.

    Thank you for everything this year, you ladies are the best, please never leave us!

  3. The N sale coverage is by far my fav! I also love the Black Friday articles. There’s just SO MUCH, the highlights are so very appreciated! There are always items that I didn’t even know that I needed, but end up loving.

    The weekly sales reports and the home edits! Oh, how you make my Saturday mornings so exciting.

    I also love the quick fb posts when you find a great deal on a great piece. They often end up in a box on my porch 😉

    Thank you, lovely gals, for all your hard work.
    What would I do without you?!

  4. Great round up! I love the variety TME offers with each contributor sharing her forté, whether it be in the home, in our closets, for our skin, for our families, food for the heart and brain, food for our tummies! My fave posts however are still the try on sessions and sale edits. Sometimes online reviews (if there are any) just don’t cut it and TME helps me think outside my same ol’ same ol’ “fashion box” (cropped boot cuts, anyone? wink wink).

    Happy New Year to the whole team! Cheers to more fun in 2019 and to less/no commenters who obviously has something in his/her life that needs to be worked out. (that you even brought it up is hilarious, I get you S!)

  5. Thanks for all of your hard work! I love reading your posts all year. I love the bathing suit coverage- but I’d like to see it separated by type rather than by style (eg, ruched rather than all ruffles or color block in one section). I’d also like to see some mid to high rise bikinis in there as well. Happy New Year!

  6. I just had to leave a note of thanks to ALL of you and ALL of your HARD WORK. It does not go unnoticed. As a stay at home mom to three boys under the age of 5 I rarely get out. Reading your blog is what makes me feel connected to the larger world. When I do make it out I feel confident and current in what I’m wearing. And thanks to your weekend posts I feel as though I can make some sort of “in-the-Know” comment about current events, books, etc. And lastly, I LOVE Annmarie and her posts on all things home goods.

  7. I particularly love the Nordstrom anniversary sale coverage, the holoday roundups, the Fall looks preview, and the seasonal capsule wardrobes…great and super helpful coverage this year!

  8. I really, really love you guys!!! I read your blog Every. Single. Day. Just you, me and a cup of coffee!! Love your ideas, how you make us feel like we know you. Your posts are honest and insightful and heartfelt. My daughter jokes “Did your friends at The Mom Edit tell you to buy that?!” “Why, yes they did!!!” Keep doing you, I’ll keep reading!!

  9. The jean chart is evvvvverything!!!
    I also appreciate everyone’s hard work on the anni/Black Friday/holiday sales. My favorites are the green reformation dress and the studded-heel white dolce vitas you rocked in Iceland.
