my mum’s threads no.1

We just had our one month anniversary here at Small Fry and, how rude of us, we haven’t formally introduced ourselves! You can read more about each of us here at our “Who’s In Charge Here” page, but what’s more telling than our go-to Mamattire? The things we throw on without thinking, feel great in, and can tackle our days no matter what’s on the agenda.

Emily's Mamattire


I wear a messy top-knot more often than I care to admit, but it works for me! I love to have warm accessories on hand that are easy to take on and off to accommodate the bi-polar Fall temperatures. After having two babies sixteen months apart, I like to hide my post-baby-baby tummy with loose fitting tops, and always have a hair elastic close by on my wrist. These black waxed denim trousers look like leather, giving me an edge, but move like leggings. These moccasins are perfectly comfortable, slip on and off, and can take a beating, which I love!

Jenna's Mamattire


Don’t roll your eyes, but I am an eyelash extension loyalist. That extra expense saves me so much time and money because I don’t feel like I need any other makeup! A swipe of bronzer and thick batting lashes are all a girl needs! For the rest of the ensembles I love a crisp button-down and a warm top layer like this cardigan, a jean jacket, or a wool coat. The button-down allows for some room to breathe right after a baby, is perfect to nurse in, and while I am neither of those things anymore, it’s a versatile blouse that grows with you!  I love a good pop of color and these cropped jeans are heavy in the rotation. I am in flats for every occasion, and classic ballet flats make me feel instantly chic and put together.

Nicole's Mamattire


My perfect fall look is usually a combination of the following: the Tippi sweater, in every color, is so well-made it doesn’t bunch, ball, or puddle. It looks polished all day long and the 3/4 sleeve is so slimming and feels just a hint more formal so I can go from the playground to a nice dinner with ease. My go-to accessories are a sleek watch to keep this mum prompt, and some dangling earrings. I love the printed pants trend and how much interest it adds to a simple outfit, and you can’t beat the versatility of a good leather sandal. Easy to kick on and off, so it doesn’t get in the way of wrestling with my boys or leaving the dust and dirt of the day on the porch.
