Some say the best is yet to come, but I believe that the best is all around us 🙂 2018 had some highlights worth mentioning….To start, we published over 300 blog posts, launched a full jewelry line, introduced the new Mother Minute series, curated a capsule collection, gave the blog a makeover, started to introduce video content, participated in a brand’s video campaign, renovated our headquarters, added to our team (Christine and Liz, what did I do without you before!), our team’s families grew (Abby welcomed her second baby girl), and Alison, my amazing photographer spent countless hours photographing and editing the images for each and every post…..
Our readership grew significantly and the most rewarding part of this job is hearing from all of you that our ideas, content, sale alerts, style tips helped to give you that extra confidence boost to go about your days doing what you all do best! Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing a part of your days with me.
As we delve into the stats, it’s clear that some items we have featured are winners. But beyond the stats, it’s the comments that are most meaningful to us and YES we read all of them! I love hearing about what readers have bought, loved, bought more colors of… We already have some *exciting things* in the works for 2019 and all of your feedback is at the forefront of everything we do. But some things are just tried and true pieces that most of you seem to agree on. There were a few stand outs this year and whether it’s the fit or the details, or the fact that they feet seamlessly into any wardrobe as a staple, we wanted to share the best of the best of 2018.

We had a blast collaborating with so many brands this year! The best part about working with these brands is that they give me the creative freedom to select my own pieces and style them on my own. Thanks to all of you for supporting that brands that believe in The Motherchic and help make this blog possible. Every brand collaboration is special to me, but here are brands I get the opportunity to work with a lot and some new brands that I had the pleasure of introducing to all of you in 2018…..
