I haven’t shared much on mom style around here. The truth is, I either never take a pic or I am far to dressed down to represent for the stylish mamas. LOL! That’s keeping it real. Now my kids are always dressed to the cuteness level. Appropriately cute as I like to call it! A few days ago, I decided to take my camera with me because I wanted to share how accessories are my
A few days ago, I decided to take my camera with me because I wanted to share how accessories are my go-to for mom style. I am usually in my standards: Black jeans or skirt, tank top, cardigan, and flats or Chucks. These things along with hoop earring are usually a part of my daily look. Throw in a “baby bag” and there you have it but sometimes a mama just wants to step her game up a little.
Mom Style Accessories
I’ve shared about keeping essentials for the kids in the car. Doing this means sometimes I can rock a cute purse and not feel like I will be SOL if one of the kids have an accident or make a mess at lunch (I’m looking at you Baby E!). Listen when the kids are not with me, a cute bag is a must but rocking one when they are with me makes me feel like the ultimate winner. And when that little purse can hold a diaper, wipes, snacks, small toys and hand sanitizer in addition to your regulars, you are in business.
This little beauty of a crossbody bag is from 88 Handbags. Not only does it hold A LOT, the company supports Care International, a charity that helps to educate women around the world. I am always here for supporting women! Oh and for my vegan friends, 88 is a vegan brand so no animal products are used. I can’t believe this little beauty of a bag is animal free. I have my eye on a few more from them especially this little yellow beauty because this mama needs to throw caution to the wind and rock some color. This pink crossbody needs to be mine too. And peep the prices folks!
And then there is the hat! Look I am still struggling with styling this natural hair. Some days a wash n go is popping. Other days, not so much so when your naturalista friends share this “Rock A Hat”, you do just that! Yup, now I want to go hat shopping.
Throwing in a cute necklace was another win. I rarely wear necklaces now because babies like to tug, pull and sooth their gums on them but I took a chance at rocking this necklace from Falling Whistles. It is cute, it supports an awesome charity and the whistle actually works. My tot loved that!
I felt pretty, stylish and confident enough to jump in the frame with my kids this day. Of course, Little Lady Zoe just had to have her own toddler style shot. She picked out this outfit. It’s spunky just like her. LOL
Poor Baby E, he has no choice but to subject to the madness of his mom and big sis. A few tickles were in order.
A shout out to my nephew for snapping some awesome pics of us. This was his first time handling a DSLR and I think he did great. He said he wants to do it again. Nothing wrong with picking up that skill Nico. Nothing wrong at all plus this blogger auntie is so here for it. LOL
How do you amp up your mom style? Share your favorite tips with me because this mama is ready to hit the streets in style.
** Thank you 88 Handbags for sending us the cutest little “big” crossbody bag. As always, all opinions are my own**

Your bag is too cute! Your little girl is adorable toting it like it’s her own.

Thank you. We (I guess I have to share it with the little lady) love it!

I love that bag! I always wear a great pair of shoes even if they are flats and I carry a stylish bag and that elevates the most basic look. I also wear cute hats. I love the one you are wearing

Thank you. Accessories definitely amp up any every day outfit.

The purse/bag is very cute! I amp up my everyday style with a fabulous pair of sunglasses. They make it easy to be stylish and protect your beautiful eyes to boot! 🙂

My baby days and the need to carry their things are over but I live for a cross body bag. I’m a pink kind of yall so that would be choice. I’m loving your hat, my head is a bit small so they don’t usually work for me.
M JApril 8, 2016 at 7:43 AM
Girl I can’t wait to be able to wear a little bag every day! Can’t wait. I was never a hat fan but this natural hair struggle is so real!

You look great. I have a horrible habit of not getting dressed except for school drop off and pick up.
M JApril 9, 2016 at 2:26 PM
Thanks Joyce! We need to catch up. Girl it is such an easy habit to fall into. I am slowly working on it.

MJ I LOVE this look! I’m a sucker for a good cross body bag and this is perfect. The kids are just too too cute…look at the baby giggle 🙂
