green dress (twice)

I worn this same dress twice in a row, and this is something that I'm used to do very frequently. I like to mix and match different color combos around a new garment, from a sure-fire combo to more unexpected ones.
This dress was certainly an impulsive purchase, it was bought at Spitalfields Market in June, and I think that this chartreuse/olive green caught my eye, standing out from a lot of colorful wax prints. I've realized that many colors which were not my cup of tea, are now very appealing to me.
So I picked my mustard cardi and trusty tan boots to be worn with this dress. And then I found this matchy-matchy scarf in my shawls box, a happy find! (my shawls/scarves box is very well assorted!).
The next day I decided that adding some purple would be more interesting and more 'me' too!. And it was not so cold, so I went for a walk and some coffee and then Mr.A. took my pictures (notice: first coffee, then stuff). Finally, it was pretty colder than I expected, and I missed a jacket or cardi, but coffee and treats were really good so I enjoyed the morning anyway!
Wish you're enjoying your week (whatever the weather)

Me puse el mismo vestido dos veces casi seguidas, y esto es algo que suelo hacer con frecuencia. Me gusta probar a mezclar y combinar diferentes colores alrededor de una misma prenda, desde la combinación más segura a algunas más inesperadas.
Este vestido fue una compra impulsiva, de cuando estuvimos en Londres en Junio, en Spitalfields Market, y creo que fue este color verde oliva/manzana lo que me llamó la atención, de todo el montón de estampados y colores que había. Me he dado cuenta de que muchos colores que antes no eran de mi gusto, ahora me van atrayendo cada vez más.
Así que elegí una chaqueta color mostaza y mis clásicas botas marrones, y luego encontré esta bufanda totalmente a juego, en la caja de los chales, un feliz encuentro! (la verdad, mi caja de los chales/bufandas está muy bien surtida!)
Para el día siguiente, decidí que me convenía añadirle morado, más interesante y más yo misma. Y, como no hacía tanto frío, me fuí a dar una vuelta y a tomar un café, y luego Mr.A. me sacó unas fotos (nótese: primero el café, luego, lo demás). Al final, hacía más frío de lo que me esperaba, y eché de menos una chaqueta, pero el café con su bocatita estuvo muy bien, así que la mañana resultó genial de todos modos.
Espero que estéis disfrutando de la semana, haga el tiempo que haga!

  7. Ooh, green dress, that certainly caught my attention, as it's my favourite colour. The dress is such a nice shade of green too. I like both versions, but the combination with purple is such a nice surprise! I actually bought a little cardigan today in exactly those colours. I love it that like me you have a box full of assorted scarves! Have a lovely and hopefully not too cold weekend, Monica. Besos xxx

  12. I like the shape of the dress very much, and the print is a nice mix of "Greens". You always put together the best colour combinations in your outfits, right down to the accessories. Purple and green is one of my fave colour combos too.
