teal & dresses

We've enjoyed a nice and warm weather last days, so I've worn lighter layers and lighter coats, particularly my purple coat and my teal jacket (both second hand purchases at eBay). This week I've worn a lot of teal color, which is one of my favorite (neutral) colors. I know it's not, but I like to use teal as a neutral, and I'm also used to wear khaki or dark green as neutrals. I think that you can create your own selection of neutral colors (actually, you can mix and match whatever you like!). So I've chosen teal, because it works nicely with any warm bold colors: yellow, orange, red or even purple. (Purple is not really a warm color, but it's the warmest of cold colors, so it could play in both teams!).
There are lots of possibilities, let's play!. And let's join IWillWearWhatILike

Hemos tenido unos días con un tiempo buenísimo y muy agradable, y eso significa menos capas de ropa y abrigos más ligeros, como este abrigo morado y esta chaqueta azul petróleo (ambos fueron compras en eBay, de segunda mano). Esta semana me he puesto un montón este color azulado, que es uno de mis colores (neutros) favoritos. Ya sé que no es realmente un color neutro, pero me gusta usarlo de esta manera, igual que me gusta usar el caqui o el verde oscuro como neutros. En mi opinión, puedes crearte tu propia selección de colores neutros (en realidad, puedes mezclar y combinar los colores como te dé la gana). Así que he elegido el azul petróleo, porque funciona muy bien con cualquier color cálido brillante: amarillo, naranja, rojo e incluso púrpura. (También sé que el morado no es en realidad un color cálido, pero es el más cálido de los colores fríos, así que podría jugar en ambos equipos!)

  1. Teal's one of my favourite colours and I love that you call it a neutral, it really does go with everything - especially purple.
    Our weather's set to get very cold again this weekend, after a terrible storm yesterday. Looks like it's big coats, gloves and scarves again! xxx

  2. All of these colours are magical!! You look amazing...Happy weekend x

  3. `Fantástica siempre en cualquier color, yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Ya sabes que te abrazo

  4. I just love teal and purple and they look fab individually and together. Your new jackets are lovely. I love your layering -it makes clothes much more interesting, I think. Hurry up Spring when we can switch to lighter jackets and won't need coats...

    Have a lovely weekend


  5. Teal is one of my favourite colours too! In fact, I was wearing teal tights like yours today, as well as a teal scarf and beret! I've never combined it with purple, but you've shown me they work well together. I can't tell you enough that I love how you embrace colour, Monica! Un gran fin de semana & mil besos xxx

  6. We had some very warm days (warm for February) this past week and I enjoyed wearing my spring coats too! Teal is a favourite colour of mine too, and you certainly make it work as a neutral in your outfits. You have such a marvelous way with colour Monica!

  7. Oh, man, how much do I love these outfits?? I adore teal and wear a lot of it as well, and you definitely have me hooked with that purple. Just lovely!
