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.

    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

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

      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!

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

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

Reflecting on the Good of 2014 Despite the Bad

This is a compensated post in collaboration with Children’s MOTRIN and The Motherhood.  Aaaaaaand it’s December. I realize we are mid-month already, but just before Thanksgiving my husband and kids packed up our bags and left for Chile. It was a last minute, spur of the moment decision. Not to be adventurous, but to say goodbye to my sweet and handsome Opa (grandfather) who, chances are will not see the new year. During those two weeks, not only did I {Read More}

At Home Healthy and Vibrant Hair Color by Madison Reed

Sponsored post in collaboration with Madison Reed. All opinions my own. I haven’t colored my hair at home since…. ohhhhh, I can’t remember. I rarely do all over color because I find they are harsh and looks terrible as it grows out. However, I’m older now (cough) and I have some pesky greys coming in which I don’t quite fancy seeing everyday. Madison Reed, salon quality haircolor approached me to try it and well — I did! No joke, I {Read More}

I’m excited for this because it’s important to update your beauty products and you always feel so good with your new products.

Embrace and Rock Your Curves with NEW Lee Curvy Fit Jeans

This is a sponsored collaboration with Redbook and Lee Misses. All opinions are my own. Jeans are never easy to shop for and over the years I’ve come to realize that it’s not just me. All over, women are not fully satisfied with the way their pants fit. One thing I cannot tolerate is the gap in the back — ahhhh drives me insane. I’ve never had a problem with it myself, but I’ve been “exposed” to it many a times. My {Read More}

Since I could read I have loved books. I could finish a book in a weekend, I’d volunteer to read aloud in class and a new book was always on my list of things to buy. Along with my love of reading, I was blessed with 20/20 vision despite desperately wanting glasses as a child. I know, crazy! I’d even pretend to struggle on my yearly eye exam at school. Each time I was sure I’d given an Oscar worthy {Read More}

A Hand Model’s Daily Beauty Routine

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of AmLactin. The opinions, text and severely dry hands are all mine. Aside from freshening up my hair with dry shampoo, applying BB Cream or a light foundation, adding a dab of blush and giving my lashes a much needed boost with mascara, part of my morning beauty routine is moisturizing my hands. Especially now with the colder weather and drier air. They don’t get just dry, they CRACK and peel {Read More}
