autumnal shades

Many times things are better in your mind, like a fabulous color combo you've dreamt of, and then looks dreary when you wear it. And sometimes you have ten minutes to dress up, you're in a hurry, and then everything works together nicely, even better than planned. Because of improvisation, I've realized that this vintage skirt and my new cardi-jacket make a perfect couple!.
I like particularly the print on this skirt, don't ask me why. There must be a forbidden happy memory in my mind about it, as it's a skirt my mom was used to wear when I was a child/teenager. It's pretty infrequent when I can borrow something from my mom's wardrobe, but she has made some sewing to fit it to me!. Once more, this is better than new!

Muchas veces planeas algo y luego resulta fatal, como tener pensada una combinación de colores fabulosa, y que luego quede fatal cuando te la pones. Y a veces tienes diez minutos para vestirte, y entonces todo combina perfectamente, incluso mejor que si lo hubieses planeado. Así que, por culpa de la improvisación, he descubierto que esta chaqueta y esta falda han nacido para ir juntas.
Me gusta especialmente el estampado de esta falda, no sé porqué. Debo tener por ahí la huella de un buen recuerdo, porque esta falda solía llevarla mi madre cuando yo era niña/adolescente. Es de verdad muy raro que pueda tomar prestado algo del armario de mi madre, pero me hizo unos ajustes en la falda para que me cupiese. De nuevo, esto es mejor que nuevo!

  1. Oh, your mum is great to have altered this for you. You are right - this jacket and skirt look like they were made for each other. And that great bag from your mum too. How cool that you can switch things like that.
    Oh yes, the last-minute throw-it-together outfits sometimes have super magic. This is a great example.

  2. No puede gustarme más, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Te lo robaré cuando vaya a Logroño, yeahhhhhhhhhhhh
    Mil besos, mágica

  3. jackets and tights and scarves......maybe I'll get to wear them sometime in November. Summer is sure hanging on around here

  4. An inspired combination - sometimes it pays not to overthink it! Loving the beautiful colours. xxx

  5. I totally agree...some of my best outfits were "thrown together" in a couple of minutes. Over-thinking things can kill the spirit. I am loving this colour combination on you...delicious and warm. Your pattern clashing/mixing is sublime AND those tights......Well, you know how I feel about them!! XXXXX
    Fake Fabulous

  6. I love the petrol blues with the mustard and the burgundy. Lovely rich, deep colours that look wonderful on you. Yes, I've been there too - the outfit that was flung together at the last minute becomes the success over the outfit that you've planned for weeks and then just looks wrong, wrong, wrong somehow when worn.
    And that necklace is stunning! What a beautiful piece.


  7. Excellent colour combination, and I love the cardi-jacket. Very rich autumn colours, and a cute kitty pin and chic bag are the perfect accessories.

  8. Such fabulous color combining my dear! Autumn perfection! xox

  9. Now that really is an inspired colour combo, it looks fantastic. xxx
