I always enjoy talking personal style, especially when someone has recently discovered they can wear a certain trend, if they’ve taken a chance on a new look and seeing someone take pride in themselves. A few months ago I helped a friend get ready for a job interview by going through her closet and we updated her mama uniform.
Every so often, I also get asked advice on what to wear, or how to wear it. I’ve noticed many women are reluctant to try new things or feel they will look ridiculous. I know how it feels because I used to be that way, but now, I am confident in my style and just go for it!
Enter Mama Style — I want to share looks from other moms, not fashion bloggers, but real looks from women who are working their style all over town!
This week, I introduce you to Marcia Sheehan seen here wearing a fierce animal print top. She’s a mom of 2 boys ages 5 and 3 and is the owner and creator of MagnifiCuffs — magnetic fashion sets that are a new way to accessorize any piece of clothing. They were originally created to convert pants to capris, however they can be used to cuff any article of clothing while adding some serious shine.
She recently told me that she took a “style risk” and wore this animal print top for the first time and styled it with a pair of discreet black pinstripe trousers, boots and a hat and felt FABULOUS. I agreed that she certainly looked very snow chic.
VBM: How would you describe your style?
MS: Subtly sexy with a mix of pretty masculine pieces and colors without baring skin, but form fitting.
VBM: Describe some of your favorite outfits, or what you like to wear.
MS: I love skinny jeans, pencil skirts, turtlenecks, black and white combos on anything, button downs, pin stripes.
VBM: Where you like to shop?
MS: Ross and Old Navy are great for our family — amazing prices and right on trend.
VBM: Style or trend you refuse to wear or are you open to trying new looks?
MS: I’ll never wear real fur or leather. Other than that, after committing to never ever wear skinny jeans and them becoming my fave bottoms now have learned to never say never to a style. I’m very open minded when it comes to style!
VBM: Is there a particular look or style you would like to try?
MS: I would love to try pleather leggings…especially after your recent post. Love the look and think it’s very sexy!
If you are doubting animal print — don’t! Do as Marcia did, and go wild this winter.
What do you think of her look? Have you taken a style risk recently?
