white & jeans

I'm even more busy than usual, and walking a lot, so I'm wearing very comfortable shoes (even more than usual, once more!). But all this walking is not because of Xmas preparations, but because we're looking for a new home, and that implies visiting a lot of flats through different neighbourhoods, and lots of previous searching too. I think it's a good oportunity to look for something fabulous!

Estoy aún más ocupada de lo habitual, y caminando un montón, así que me estoy poniendo zapatos muy cómodos (aún más de lo habitual, de nuevo). Pero todo este pasearse no es porque esté liada con los preparativos navideños, sino porque estamos buscando piso, y eso implica montones de visitas por diferentes barrios y también un montón de búsquedas. Creo que esto va a ser una buena oportunidad de encontrar algo estupendo!

Showing you my revamped shoes. I was looking for comfy shoes for my walks and excursions, and they were in a heavy discount so I bought them even if I disliked their color. I thought I could incorporate into my style. What was I thinking!? It was a mistake, and a big one. I'm not an earthy tones lover, and brown is a color I avoid actively. So I've felt frustrated by my purchase, until I took a risk and dyed the shoes. At least, now I'm wearing them, and doing it with a smile on my face.

Os enseño estos zapatos que he 'mejorado'. Estaba buscando calzado cómodo para paseos y excursiones y éstos estaban rebajadísimos, así que los compré, aunque el color no me gustaba. Creí que podría incorporarlo a mi estilo. No sé qué estaba pensando, porque fue una completa *#& de compra, no soy nada amante de los tonos tierra y el marrón es un color que evito siempre. Así que me sentía muy frustrada con esta compra, hasta que me arriesgué a teñirlos. Al menos, ahora me los estoy poniendo, y además con una sonrisa!

  3. I am inspired by this look, Monica!
    Firstly, the shoes...brilliant idea. I MUST look into changing the colour of some of mine that I am tired of. They are like a new pair! Especially with the addition of coloured laces. Great idea (I am "borrowing" it).
    AND your white jeans....I have been wanting to wear mine this winter with my new chunky boots and a super-fluffy roll neck jumper. You have given me the nudge I needed to stop procrastinating and start getting on with it.
    Thank you for (yet more) colour and style inspiration.
    I really look forward to your artistic outfit creations.
    Always genuine.
    Always colourful.
    Always inspiring.

  4. You did a brilliant job with the shoes, they look wonderful and so you! Why do they insist on making practical clothing in boring colours? Love the tunic and the beret and wishing you much success in flat hunting! xxx

  5. And I add my praise to the others about the shoes - you've gone for the perfect colour! So cheery and bright! And the print of the top is beautiful.
    Happy house hunting - it does involve sooo much walking.


  6. Qué gran idea el teñirlos...sobre todo si son cómodos.

  7. WOW!!! I can't believe you've done these shoes by yourself - they look so perfect! Great job! Love your outfit, you look fantastic and very much happy wearing your bright colors with white jeans (I wear white jeans a lot too recently). And you're in search for a new home - that's huge news! I would love to learn more about it, please keep us posted. Moving to a new place is one of the most exciting things in life for me. Merry Christmas! Warmest wishes and hugs!
