autumn colors

I'm not complaining, but it's hard to come back to routine when you've got so much fun. My routine is pretty enjoyable, but there's a tiny bit of nostalgia pinching my heart meanwhile I put away maps and pics.
But I've got some sunshine to share, and some pics which were taken by my mom (there're visitors at home, once more)

No voy a quejarme, pero es que es duro volver a la rutina cuando te lo has pasado muy muy bien. Y eso que mi rutina es estupendísima, pero es que hay como una pizquita de nostalgia pellizcándome dentro mientras me pongo a guardar los mapas y las fotos.
Pero hace un tiempo espectacular, y tengo unas fotos para compartir, que ha tomado mi madre. Tengo visitas en casa, de nuevo!

- trench, La Redoute / gabardina
- dress, made by myself / vestido, fabricación casera
- pants, La Redoute (old) / pantalón
- striped t-shirt, C&A (old) / camiseta rayas
- sandals, El Naturalista (old) / sandalias
- bag, retail / bolso, tienda local

And I'm wearing for the first time a trench I've bought recently. It was a serendipitous find, after my unsucessful attempt to dye an old beige trench into orange. Beige has a dull quality which defies even orange color!

Y estoy estrenando esta gabardina que compré hace poco. Fue un encuentro en el momento justo, porque acababa de intentar teñir (sin éxito) una vieja gabardina beige en naranja. Debe haber algo tan muermo en el beige que puede hasta con el color naranja.

- skirt, a present by Sacramento / falda, un regalo de Sacramento
- turquoise shirt, Elena Miró (at least twelve years old) / camisa turquesa, de hace doce años lo menos.
- cardi, ebay / chaquetita
- sandals, Wonders (old) / sandalias
- bag, retail / bolso, tienda local
- shawl, very old / chal, antigüito

  1. Coming back from holidays always make me feel a little melancholy, too. These outfits are gorgeous though, its gloomy, cold and damp here this morning and they've cheered me up no end! xxx

  2. Oh yes, I definitely experience that slump after having a great time away on a trip. But you'll bounce back! Gorgeous bright colours and fabulous prints help - the comic strip dress over the striped t-shirt is wonderful, and just look at that glorious sunshine! xxx

  3. The happiest of outfits here. The trench colour is gorgeous. You make me think spring is coming. "Pinching my heart" sums up the feeling of returning to routine after a holiday quite well. But now you get to plan your next one. Have a great week.

  4. I always experience post-vacation let-down too. Love the colours in both of these outfits and the long section of your hair looks so cool.

  5. You look ever so amazing, I love these outfits. It is always hard to get back to it after a vacation. I hope you have a marvellous weekend xx

  6. Love these colours, your smile and that wonderful sunshine.
    That trench coat is a total 'wantie' on my list now. So much more appealing than beige!
    Do you get to see your mom often? Where does she live?
    Enjoy the visitors this weekend!!

    1. thanks for your comments!
      my mom (&dad) lives at three hours by car, they're retired and live in a little village in Castilla, so they come frequently

  7. Oh, Mrs. Allnut, I have missed your fashion style! I have just recently returned from Spain and am still trying to transition to the loss of the beautiful Spanish sun and delicious food! I am head over heels in love with your orange trench! Beautiful! And those sunnies! ¡Me encantan! ¡Besos! :)

  8. Siempre cuesta un poco "aterrizar" después de las vacaciones... pero por eso son tan maravillosas... porque siempre duran poco y nos dejan con ganas de más... de todas formas, la rutina (aunque divertida como la tuya) es más llevadera usando esos maravillosos colores y estampados , el vestido con el print de los comics de Esther me ha dejado loquita!

  9. i love your pop art deess ! And the colors of the second outfit are amazing ! They bring calor to my heart !

  10. Glad you still have some sun to smile in. Love the orange trench! Dyeing can be unpredictable, but that's also why I love it! Love the comic strip's so you! Xo JJ

  11. Great colours! I'm glad you found an orange trench!
