winter walk

It’s time for some Winter layering, which is one of the few enjoyable things about Winter dressing. I like to wear my jackets under puff coats (comfy!), but they can be also worn under wool coats, if you have enough room to move and don’t feel like a stuffed animal!. I have some not-perfectly-fitted wool coats, which are avoiding donation pile because of its layering qualities!.
I’ve been sick, and I’m still weak and fussy, so my blogging activities are even more variable than usual, but I’m going to catch you as soon as possible.

Linking some fabulous ladies: IWillWearWhatILike and Visible Monday

Es el momento de las superposiciones, tan invernales, que es una de las pocas cosas a las que sacar partido en el vestuario de invierno. Me gusta llevar chaquetas bajo los acolchados (es tan cómodo!) pero también se pueden llevar bajo abrigos de paño, si son holgados como para ello, y no acabas inmovilizada. Tengo algunos de estos abrigos un poco sueltos, que están evitando irse al montón de las donaciones de caridad, porque son estupendos para llevar capa sobre capa.
He estado enferma, y aún estoy un poco débil y bastante quejosa, así que me he vuelto todavía más inestable a la hora de bloguear, pero ya me pondré al día tan pronto como pueda.

  1. Layering to the rescue. I love how pieces maintain their life as assistance pieces, like your wool coats. And I love what this one is concealing under it - love that jacket and skirt and those patterns together. I'm sorry to hear you've not been feeling well. Hugs for a speedy recovery.

  2. No hay cosa que me guste más. Deseando estoy de ver si te sirve algo de lo que , por fin, te he mandado hoy.
    Mil besos tesoro.
    la próxima vez me meto en el paquete, ajjajajaj

  3. Lovely skirt and I love the layering look - it's so versatile. I also love your stripey tights.

    Hope you feel better soon!


  4. The colour of your skirt is joyous - enough to banish the oh-so-long winter blues! Sorry to hear you've been ill - hope you feel better soon. And that little black and white jacket is really smart! xxx

  5. Hope you feel loads better soon, you certainly look a vision of loveliness in your zingy orange and cool striped tights. xxxx

  6. winter? wool? it's in the high 80's here this week. I've had the front door open since 7am!

    1. you, lucky lady!
      I lived in the south of Spain for seven years, and don't miss those long hot summers, but springs were magnificent seasons!

  7. These layers are practical and fun!
    I love that vibrant skirt and it is lovely to see you in that photograph next to the roses.
    Yellow roses are my favourite flower.

    Your hair is the perfect finishing touch. Peeping out of your beret.
    I am getting mine cut tomorrow...and dyed red!
    I can't decide whether to grow it (a little) or not...dilemas.
    What do you think? Do you ever grow yours down a little?

    1. I've had my short pixie (or even shorter) from my twenties, and I'm really happy with it, as I'm not a huge fan of my hair when it grows!
