If you are a mom here in Pittsburgh and you consider yourself to have an adventurous soul, then the newly launched women’s t shirt company INDEPENDENT MAMA is for YOU…

ATTN: Read to the end for a special offer!  Full disclosure: Independent Mama is totally my company. I am not biased at all. ?


Independent Mama is a boutique blog and t shirt company for strong women with wanderlust and a heart for adventure. Free spirit moms! The site includes travel inspiration, outdoor adventure tips (for with or without the kids!), lots of beautiful photos (ahem, mine?), and of course an online shop for you to pick up your next cozy shirt to take on your adventures.

We created the online storefront in celebration of motherhood and as an outlet to create a FUN community of independent women everywhere! You can read more about the journey to Independent Mama on the store’s website.

My daughter Maya and I are our resident doodlers (er, designers), imagining new shirt ideas and designs together. Maya’s drawings will be featured on our kids’ clothing line, alongside my own for the adult sizes.

Here’s the website! You can access the shop directly from the home page, or click through to any of our blog posts from that page…

Where can I find INDEPENDENT MAMA?

The design team is based here in Pittsburgh, though shirts and swag are currently only available online (with free shipping over $35).

On the blog we will be sharing adventure inspiration weekly… whether the topic is me-time for moms, or tips to get outside with your kids. Will also be sharing behind the scenes background about how each shirt design came to be! So if you ever wondered how our crazy minds work over here, there is your insight… ?

Tell me about the SHIRTS?

The shirts we carry are hand selected for their lightweight softness. They feel delicate but not see-through, practical but flattering. Most important they are COMFORTABLE! We can prove it… we tried on dozens of different shirts and crowdsourced feedback from Pittsburgh moms like YOU!
