An Inside Look at Our Mother's Day Event, Presented By Cotton

Thank you to our friends at Cotton for partnering with us on this story.

Arielle and Team SN’s newest moms are opening up on all things motherhood.

Last week, we hosted our Something Candid: Virtual Mother's Day event at The Cotton Shop, our special section featuring select cotton products within the Something Navy store. Arielle Charnas, our Founder and Chief Creative Officer, was joined by moms of Team SN, including Meghan Guffey, Tara Moni, and Sara Johnson.

No topic was off-limits in this candid conversation–and, since this is Team SN we’re talking about, the fashion was on point.

Arielle, Meghan, Tara, and Sara opened up on their lives as working moms, their pregnancy journeys, and the joys of styling their kids.

Arielle’s daughters, Ruby and Esme, are developing their very own sense of style. “At the beginning, I like to dress my kids,” Arielle said. “I stick to cotton for all their basics, t-shirts, leggings, and onesies because it’s breathable, hypoallergenic, and great for sensitive skin. It really is The Fabric of Our Lives."

Now, Ruby is a full-on budding fashionista, taking cues from her always on-trend mom. “Ruby bases her whole day on her outfits,” Arielle explained. “She wakes up in the morning and before we even look at each other, she's in her closet putting on a look. It’s the way that Ruby expresses herself. I like to let her be free with that!”

The panelists also reflected on their identity as "mom" during the candid conversation. Tara, the newest mama on Team SN, welcomed her son Milo three months ago. “I have a newfound appreciation for all mothers,” Tara said “It’s truly something you don’t understand unless you live through it!"

Meghan and Sara both welcomed their daughters, Colette and Shae, last year. Now, they're looking ahead to a major milestone: their first birthdays.

“I just can’t believe she’s almost one,” Meghan said of Colette. “Motherhood is just the best thing ever. Your children bring out the best in you. Especially as working women, I want to leave it all out on the field so my daughter has the best example.”

Now, let's talk fashion. Arielle and Team SN selected cotton pieces from our new May Collection that are also featured in The Cotton Shop for the special event.

“Cotton is such an easy material to incorporate because it’s perfect year-round,” explained Sara, SN's VP of Merchandising. “In spring and summer, it’s lightweight and airy. In the fall and winter, cotton is super durable and insulating, so it keeps you warm underneath your layers.”

Arielle wore the Natalie Smocked Floral Midi Dress, and Meghan chose the Kira Scoop Neck Top and Mae Wide Leg Pants.

Tara wore two new sets for the occasion: first up was the Magnolia Shirt Jacket and Agnes Paperbag Shorts. Then, she changed into the Dollie Embroidered Sweatshirt and the Hazel Paperbag Sweatshorts. Sara selected her namesake, the Sara Long Sleeve Top paired with the Nina Denim Pants With Slit and DL1961's Hepburn Wide Leg High Rise Vintage Denim.
