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.

All Day Comfort and Style from the Ground Up

Sponsored post in collaboration with The Motherhood and Rockport. Total Motion Boots received complimentary to showcase comfort and style. View are my own. One of the comments I most hear from other women, especially mamas is that they “don’t have time” to be stylish or that “it’s too much work.” Followed by “I’d rather be comfortable.” Oh really? So they think I walk around uncomfortable all day for the sake of looking good? Umm, think again. I really don’t like {Read More}

Fit Family Fun at the Rock ‘n’ Stroller 5k

I am taking part in the Rock ‘n’ Stroller 5k with my family who have been given complimentary tickets. Compensated post — views and willingness to participate are my own! The weekend is going to be busier than usual for us. The Mr. travels quite a bit so on weekend we tend to sleep in, enjoy a family brunch, play in the yard and stay close to home as possible. We are the opposite of over-planning. However, the next few days are {Read More}

Trust me, I have calendars, planners, sticky notes, dry erase boards, notifications on my phone, but sometimes you just need it all in one place in an old fashion {Read More}

History Meets Style at the Spite House in Old Town Alexandria

Sunday’s are always family days and we pretty much stay in Alexandria. There is always something going on, so we never need to go very far. This weekend was the 12th Annual King Street Art Festival and the weather was just marvelous! Breezy, sunny with a touch of fall in the air. Alexandria is a historic city with brick sidewalks, cobblestone streets, colorful row homes and more. On the way back to the car I wanted to show the Mr. {Read More}

Back to School Fall Style Session at South Moon Under

Share Button

You got me. It’s not a back to school fall style session for the kids, but for us, the mamas (and non-mamas too!) By now most of us parents of school age kids can cross back to school shopping off our lists. Now it’s time for OUR back to school shopping! Yes, yes — it’s time to get out and update your fall wardrobe — after all we need to look good for back to school night, and that bake sale {Read More}

Give Your Mama Outfit an Edge with a Skull Print Scarf

Share Button

Sometimes you just want to add a bit of edginess to a classic look, at least I do. That’s what happened last Thursday when I wore this skull print scarf that I bought at H&M for $3 from their sale bin two weeks ago. I was going on Let’s Talk Live to do my monthly segment and the dress I was going to wear was a bit too snug in the chest area — the good news is that it fits because of the 12 {Read More}
