Real Mom Style: Leather Jacket and Broken Ray-Bans (VIDEO)

What a gorgeous weekend!

It was absolutely magical outside and seeing and feeling the sun on my skin just made me feel alive. Sunlight does wonders for my mood and helps push away the blues — so I wasted no time in taking the kids out.

Even though my mind is really on spring and summer I still wore my leather jacket because it’s just a favorite of mine and the evenings are still quite cold. See the entire outfit in my first Real Mom Style video — there’s also a surprise or two in there!

Here are a few more snaps — especially of ¡mi niña bella!

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 MomMomma in Flip Flops and myself Very Busy Mama.

    Hey Maria Jose, thank you for hosting. Loving the video…what a great way to share an outfit and I love how you’ve worked your wardrobe today, using items you’ve had for a while – true #realmomstyle. Have a great week! Avril x

    You rock that jacket Maria! Don’t talk to me about feeling the sun on your skin… I wish!! x

      Thanks Alex! I know how it is…takes a good while for spring to really “arrive” over there. One year that came back to the US and I got sun poisoning just from being in the sun all day because my body wasn’t used to it!

    I love a great leather jacket! I wish it was warm enough here to wear one!

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

      Well Toronto isn’t getting warm yet — I do feel for you ;( But after this great weekend it snowed today and will again for another few days. Crazy weather!

    Great video! If it looks good, wear it…even if it’s broke :) True #RealMomStyle repurposing a pair of slacks and still looking good while doing it!

      Thanks Marcia! Most things these days are broken, stained, pulled or vomited on. It’s part of life now, hahaha!

  • thriftychicmom

    She is so precious and I love the jacket. My Skagen sunglasses are broke too but I still love them!

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

      Thanks Ellen, she’s a crazy one always grabbing at everything!!! I can’t bear to part with my sunglasses and I’ve been told they can’t be repaired. Super glue maybe??

  • Clarendon Moms

    I love, love, love your video! Fantastic leather jacket! But, what really inspired me is the fact that you kept your chic sunglasses (you can get them fixed another day)! Keep the videos rolling! Love them!

      thank you beautiful mama and I appreciate the compliment on the video — you know I love it! xoxo

Portable Fun with Playskool Pop-Up Shape Sorter

It’s been a long summer. In fact, too long. My son’s last day of kindergarten was June 2nd! Take a few moments to ponder that one. Keeping a 6 year old and a very stubborn and “it’s my way or no way” 2 1/2 year old has not been an easy task. My kids and I played (and searched for pieces!) with the Pop Up Shape Sorter as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars and Playskool #PlayskoolCrew Toys in this house {Read More}

The Bathroom is My “Mommy Hiding Place” (VIDEO)

Yes, I hide in my bathroom to get away from the kids and husband when I need a break. So what?! Headphones. CHECK! Magazines. CHECK! Phone. CHECK! Door locked. CHECK CHECK! Where is your mommy hiding space?

Too Cool for School with On-the-Go Playskool Fun

When you are a toddler/preschooler you accessorize with your coolest toys. They should ideally complement any outfit, they should be portable for the unstoppable on-the-go kid and washable (or at least easy to wipe down) making our lives as mamas much easier. My kids and I played, learned and accessorized with the Fold n’ Go Busy Elephant and the Stack n’ Stow Cups as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars and Playskool #PlayskoolCrew Playskool does super cool like no other {Read More}

15 Most Influential Mom Fashion and Beauty Bloggers

This blog began in January 2012 after blogging as my son for two years at Mummy’s Busy World (no longer online.) I was scared to be me, especially if I was going to show real style, fashion and beauty as a mamá. I hadn’t seen much by way of mom fashion bloggers so I wasn’t sure where to start. I thought fashion and beauty blogging was for the thin, under 30 and childless — at least that’s what it seemed like. {Read More}
