mixed prints experiment

The unpredictable weather in spring means that it would be necessary to carry a case full of different coats/jackets to be dressed up for any possible weather conditions. We've enjoyed a chilly morning, then some wind and rain, then a very warm evening and, finally, a really cold night!.
I've decided to make the most of this madness, and tryied some different outfits using diferent outerwear but the same pants and shirt. It has been not difficult to do it, as I had to go out several times, to go to work, to run some errands, to do groceries... and every time I went out, I changed some details in my outfit. Not a real challenge, as I'm used to do it all the time!. What do you like better, mustard, purple or orange?
Joining Visible Monday and wishing you a fabulously visible week!

Con este tiempo de primavera tan impredecible, haría falta llevar una maleta con ropa de diferente abrigo para estar preparada para todas las posibles condiciones climáticas. Hemos disfrutado de una mañana fresca, luego lluvia y viento y luego una tarde muy agradable, y finalmente, frío por la noche.
He decidido sacarle partido a toda esta locura, y probar a llevar combinaciones diferentes, con distintas prendas por fuera, pero con los mismos pantalones y camisa. No ha sido tan difícil, porque tenía que salir varias veces, al trabajo, a hacer unos recados, a comprar verduras... y así sucesivamente, y cada vez que salía, cambiaba unos detalles. Así que no resultó ningún reto, porque suelo hacer estas cosas todo el tiempo!. ¿Cuál preferís, el amarillo mostaza, el morado o el naranja?
Me apunto al Visible Monday y espero que tengáis una semana fabulosamente visible!

  1. I'm partial to the purple, I love the contrast with your hair. These are all fab looks! Thanks for linking, xo


  2. Me encanta como estás disfrutando la camisa. No te puedes imaginar la alegría que me da.
    Ya sabes que te adoro y te abrazo

  3. I love both the mustard and the purple. Oh, and those raspberry Mary Janes ... Besos xxx

  4. This is a very hard decision! In the end, I'd say the mustard, but they are all smashing looks. Each one to me has a different vibe, the purple slightly grounded, the orange, ready to go!, and the mustard, ready to jump! Hahaha. Beautiful. And I love this location too.

  5. I love both of them (I'm no help, am I!) xxx

  6. Every time I see your outfits they make me smile. It is your joy for colour that comes across so well.

    I think I like the purple best but in reality they are all great.


  7. I love them all but I think the mustard is my favourite! I absolutely love your African print trousers, too!


  8. My heart goes to mustard yellow!!! This cardigan has been my favorite for years, every time it's a hit with me! And I love your print mix, so vibrant! Our weather is just like that too - from cool mornings to warm days, some sun, some rain, and cold nights!

  9. There is no best for me, Monica, as I love them all. Like you, I'm passionate about vivid colours and really can't choose between these. However, the trousers are what I covet most - oh, I'd definitely have fun too styling these up in many ways. Such joy to see all of this colourplay!

  10. What a wonderful variety of colours! I love them all, but especially the orange and the purple (of course).
