white winter

Breaking some rules can be really funny. White leggings are considered unflattering and too casual, particularly when worn by a middle-aged (fat) lady. It's even worse if this ensemble includes a printed pink tunic, 'cause, you know, prints and colors are evil when you're plus sized. Mwahaha.
We're not having a properly winter weather, it's unnaturally warm, and foggy. So I'm still layering as if Autumn was never gone. A jacket under a light trench is enough for a rainy day at 10ºC (January, are you going bananas?)

Romper las normas puede ser tan divertido!. Los leggings blancos se consideran poco favorecedores y, además, demasiado informales para una dama de cierta edad (y gorda). Y es aún peor si se incluye una túnica estampada rosa, porque, ya sabéis, los estampados y colores fuertes son el mal absoluto si llevas talla grande. Me da la risa.
El invierno parece totalmente ausente, hace una temperatura anormalmente templada, y con niebla. Así que llevo el mismo estilo de superposiciones que en otoño. Una chaqueta bajo una gabardina es más que suficiente para un día de lluvia a 10ºC. Enero, ¿estás de broma?!

  1. Good for you breaking all the rules - you rebel you!

    The white leggings are great; I have several pairs of white jeans but haven't had white leggings since the early 90s. Your leggings look lovely with the pink red and turquoise accents. Love those brogues! x

  2. Bin the "rules"!!!
    Who makes them anyway?
    Miserable people who don't know how to have fun.

    You are certainly not a "Fat middle-aged lady" and I won't hear that!!
    You are fearless and bold and beautiful.
    Plus....you have amazing legs!!
    White leggings are your friend, as is a patterned tunic!

    I am going a little crazy for this red, teal and white combination.
    I am going to have to "borrow" it, and soon.
    So fresh and vibrant. Perfect for a warmer winter day.
    And, those SHOES! Oh how I love them. XXX

  5. ¿Dama de cierta edad y gorda? Debe ser una broma porque yo te veo estupenda y llena de optimismo y color. ¡Ya me gustaría a mí tener esa alegría a la hora de vestir y combinar colores!
    Y sí, es verdad: ¿Enero?
