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

Share Button

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!

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 MomMomma in Flip Flops and myself Very Busy Mama.

    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

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}

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}
