A Fashionable Playskool Playdate with Stylish D.C. Mamas

Share Button

It’s #RealMomStyle Monday here and today is certainly jam packed with mamas!

Last week I attended the Hasbro Playskool Playdate here in Washington, D.C. with other area moms of pre-school aged kids. Hasbro was introducing new Sesame Street and Playskool toys for the season with a super hero theme and M went straight to the robots and Mr. Potato head.

I was actually super excited about this event because we don’t get many big brand events here in the nation’s capital AND I just missed them. Really! In London I went to kid-themed events often and even M was happy saying “¡GRACIAS mami, por fin un evento de niños! / THANK YOU mami, finally an event for kids!”

Of course I met up with fellow bloggers and got to meet their kids — It was as if my Instagram feed came to life.  Aside from that, it was a room full of gorgeous stylish mamas and I’m happy to show them all off to you!

This post is about real mamas who have real style. While we all fall into the jeans and t-shirt rut we are encouraging our fellow moms to take the time to dress their best and rock it like the rock star moms they are!

Did you look especially good this week, were the other moms at the playground complimenting your outfit? 

Share the look that worked for both potty training, the playground and coffee with a friend and let’s inspire each other with some real mom fashion! This linky is hosted by Thrifty and Chic Mom and Very Busy Mama.

    Alright Mama Mia!! I adore that you featured all these great mamas, and I love that I follow several. How to choose just one.

    #1. I LOVE those beads on you. Love, love, love! The shoes pull it all together, so cute.
    #2. Keonte, I saw this on IG and I adore the dress. I haven’t been brave enough to try sandals like that yet, but totally something I would wear and I LOVE her hair… love it!!
    #3. Nikki, super cute shorts. Basic yet adorbs.
    #4 Kiley, I’ll take that necklace right now.
    #5. Andrea; I totally have the exact outfit in coral. Cute & love the name. ;)
    #6. Angelica – I totally need to try the jumpsuit again. I looked like a beast, but she is rockin’ and with the print. Brave and glam.
    #7. Ashley, basics and cute.
    #8. Mindi, can’t beat a dress you feel comfy in.
    #9. Heather, always wearing something cute and maybe I’m behind, but I didn’t catch when she cut her hair. Super cuteness!!

    Thanks for sharing all this fabulous inspiration. Beautiful women & looks like you add had a wonderful time!

      Andrea, THANK YOU! Target Clearance FTW! My Husband hated the outfit, said it “didn’t match” he just didn’t “get it.” It was s total “Clleless” movie outfit. Because “As IF” to my Husband! LOL! And YES! Chop went my hair!!!

      • Andrea Summers

        Hubbys usually don’t have a clue when it comes to that stuff. Haha!!

        LOVE the hair. :)

  • shelly

    Such great outfits! I especially love Keonte’s! Wish I could have been there to meet all of you fun ladies, but my daughter was sick. Plus my prego mama style is pretty boring since hardly anything fits. LOL

    • Mindi Stavish

      We missed you!!! Next time!

      Next time and I’m sure your preggo style looks just fab :)

    Thank you for including us all in this wonderful round-up. I love that it shows our individuality (because “MOMS” are always clustered in the same group). It was wonderful meeting everyone. I would easily wear (and probably own) a piece from each person’s picture. What a great group. @andreasummers:disqus , what kind words. I live in my gladiator sandals. Ironically, they feel empowering. You should give them a try.

    • Mindi Stavish

      I love those sandals. I think they would look silly on me being so short. They would likely come up to my knees or past them!!

    • Andrea Summers

      I totally need to Keonte!!! :)

    • http://www.verybusymamablog.com/ María José Ovalle

      thanks mama and I love showing off other looks too!

  • Ashley @irishred02

    thanks for showing us off! I hope we get more playdates soon :)

    • http://www.verybusymamablog.com/ María José Ovalle

      Yes, hope so!

  • Mindi Stavish

    So great to see all of you! Love this round up.

Monica Byrd asked me to be a part of it and I happily agreed. Along with other like-minded bloggers and businesswomen we had a great time talking about what it means to be a hot mama and talked about the trials and tribulations of motherhood, our personal style, beauty must-haves (helloooooo dry shampoo!) {Read More}

See video on how to apply red lipstick and see for yourself how it instantly dries: Hi, I’m addicted to red lipstick and I’m not ashamed. I am a red lipstick kind of gal — different shades of red, matte, glossy, tinted, drugstore brand, high-end brands. You name it, I probably own it. For some reason, I didn’t pay much attention when a package of Makeup Academy cosmetics arrived for me a few weeks ago. I peeked in and saw {Read More}

You know how much I preach about looking and feeling good no matter your size, budget or time constraints — I’ve been on the other side and it’s terrible! I’m not a stylist nor do I want to be one, but I do enjoy encouraging and helping women gain confidence, learn to take style risks and make themselves a priority and using myself as an example. Maybe motivational speaker/comedian is what I’m meant to do! This past Saturday, I hosted {Read More}
