red & dress

Even if our Winter is not extremely cold, there are some chilly days with snow and sleet which means sensible clothes and warm coats. I've been wearing my new-to-me shearling coat a lot (and some puffer coats too but this is not very interesting!) and I've had to solve the problem of picking a bag to be worn with a bulky coat. My usual cross-body bags are not suitable and my beach and straw bags are pretty unseasonable (I miss them!). So I was looking for tote handbags at my usual charity shops, until I realised that I already had some practical bags to carry all my stuff.
Same happened when I was looking for a pair of waterproof black boots and then I found these ones in the bottom of my closet. They only needed new insoles, more studs and a red string. And I'd almost discarded them last year!
I strongly recommend having a look into your own wardrobe before going shopping!.
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week!

Aunque el invierno por aquí no sea extremadamente frío, hay siempre algunos días de nieve, aguanieve y bajas temperaturas, lo que significa que hay que ponerse la ropa adecuada y abrigos gordos. Y mi favorito últimamente es este abrigo de piel vuelta (segunda mano) y también unos cuantos acolchados que no son muy interesantes!. Así que he tenido que resolver el problema de qué bolso llevar con estos abrigos tan voluminosos, ya que los habituales bolsitos cruzados no me sirven y mis bolsos de playa no son precisamente apropiados (ay, los echo de menos). Así que estuve buscando bolsos grandes, de mano, sobre todo en tiendas solidarias, hasta que me dí cuenta de que ya tengo bolsos prácticos y grandes donde caben todas mis cosas.
Lo mismo me pasó cuando estaba buscando unas botas negras impermeables y entonces me encontré estas en el fondo del armario. Sólo necesitaban plantillas, unas cuantas tachuelas más y unos cordones vistosos. Y pensar que casi las descarté el año pasado!
No puedo recomendaros bastante que, antes de ir de compras, vayáis a revisar a fondo vuestro propio armario.
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible!

  3. That shearling coat must be your best buy ever! I love how you upcycled those shoes by adding red laces. And as always I'm loving your wonderful use of colour. Nothing better to get us through the grey Winter days. It hasn't been really cold here either, with hardly any snow or sleet, but it's been raining almost non-stop. Bring on Spring! Besos xxx
