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

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}

I’m constantly looking for ways to improve or change up my style and look. Not that I’m unsatisfied, but as I’ve said before, it’s not just about getting dressed — it’s a creative process for me and one that I truly get joy from (except for when my jeans won’t go up past my thighs or when I have a permanent indent on my stomach from the button mark… you know, gordita problems.)

Sponsored by FitTea PostNatal FatBurner. Losing the baby weight struggle stories are my own. I’ve always been gordita and I gain weight just thinking about a carb.
