wrapped in purple

It has not been my best morning, as it was a grey day, not really cold but unpleasantly windy. And I hadn't prepared anything in advance to dress up in the morning, so I had to pick something quickly and move on. This tunic dress was hanging outside my wardrobe, because it was previously worn (with striped tights and a long coat) last week. So it was easy to pick it and then look for something matchy. In this case, that means lots of purple!. I had never wore this tunic with this pants, which is amazing!

This purple coat (see it here) is not warm enough for a chilly morning, so layering was a sensible idea. I decided to wear my massive wool wrap over the coat, just the way it is supposed to be worn and just the way I never did!. Well, it worked nicely, so I have to admit that conventional is not always bad and/or boring. Becoming a bourgeois, perhaps?.
Linking Visible Monday because visible ladies rock!.

No ha sido precisamente una buena mañana, amaneció un día gris, no muy frío pero con un viento desagradable. Y no tenía preparado nada por adelantado para vestirme, así que tuve que escoger cualquier cosa rápidamente y seguir adelante. Esta túnica estaba colgada fuera del armario, porque ya me la había puesto la semana pasada (con medias de rayas y un abrigo largo). Así que lo más fácil era echársela encima y luego buscar algo que combinase. En este caso, más morado, a montones. Nunca me había puesto esta túnica con estos pantalones, sorprendentemente.
El abrigo morado (podéis verlo aquí) no es suficiente para una mañana fresca, es ligerito, así que hubo que recurrir a alguna superposición. Y decidí ponerme este chal de lana por encima, justo como se supone que hay que llevarlo y justo como nunca lo llevo. Pues, bueno, resulta que está muy bien, así que tengo que admitir que lo convencional no siempre es malo y/o aburrido. ¿Me estoy volviendo burguesa, quizás?
Enlazo al Visible Monday porque las señoras visibles molan!

Estas fotos me las tomé yo misma con el temporizador de la cámara. Lo siento!

This is what I wore last week. Once more, it looks like I forgot my pants, but did Not. I also wore my shorts in a similar outfit, just a few days ago 01Feb18 and I think it's pretty comfy for a rainy day, under a long coat. I'm wearing my waterproof booties, which are not stylish, but who cares!?

Esto es lo que me puse la semana pasada. De nuevo, parece que me he dejado los pantalones, pero no!. También me puse shorts en un modo similar, hace unos pocos días, 01Feb18 y me parece muy cómodo para un día de lluvia, debajo de un abrigo largo. Y con mis botitas totalmente impermeables, que no serán muy estilosas, pero a quién le importa!?

  3. You becoming a bourgeois? I don't think so, Monica ;-) In fact, you are looking totally non-bourgeois in your amazing, cobbled-together purple outfit! Your trousers are fabulous and I love how you're wearing that snuggly looking purple wrap. And are my eyes deceiving me, or are you wearing purple shoes too? You really rock this colour! Besos xxx

  4. I have those same tights! I haven't worn them yet but I may do now!

    The wrap is fabulous. It looks so warm and what a beautiful colour it is. It goes brilliantly with the tunic and over the lightweight coat - such clever layering!

    Love all the accessories...

  6. I am in love with your purple wrap!!! And your purple stripy legs!!! What a fabulous whimsical bohemian ensemble. You also created an illusion of wearing a massive pendant by combining your necklace with the print of your top! Love that effect!
