transitional orange

When Autumn rears its (beautiful) head, it is time to embrace some orange color and welcome a new season and lots of fun. Don't think in boring colors, orange is fabulous as a transitional color to help our wardrobes to go from Summer to Autumn. I believe it!
I've worn this maxi skirt that I made from a piece of fabric that I found in my stash. This fabric was used as a sofa cover twenty years ago, its color had faded, so it was not useful anymore. I decided to sew a simple skirt, something like a beach wrap or pareo, and make good use of its vertical stripes. Then I dyed it in an orange-red color, which was not what I was looking for, but that's the way it works sometimes!. I found this new reddish color quite difficult to match with any other color than orange, so I went for a total look. Next time, I would try some greens probably!
And it's time to join another fabulous Visible Monday! Had a visible week!

Cuando el otoño asoma la cabeza, es el momento de lanzarse al color naranja y dar la bienvenida a una nueva estación y montones de posibilidades. Nada de colores aburridos, el naranja es estupendo como color para ayudar a la transición del guardarropa de verano al de otoño. Así lo creo!
Me he puesto esta falda larga que me hice de una pieza de tela que encontré en mi 'almacén'. Esta tela se usó como cubresofá hace veinte años, el color se veía gastado, así que ya no servía para su finalidad. Decidí usarla para coser una falda sencilla, estilo pareo cruzado, y aprovechar las rayas verticales. Luego la teñí por encima con un color naranja-rojo, que no es lo que estaba buscando, pero estas cosas pasan con los tintes!. Este color ha resultado difícil de combinar con ningún otro color que no fuese más naranja, así que he elegido todo en este tono. La próxima vez, probaré con verdes!
Y es el momento de unirse a otro Visible Monday y desearos una semana muy visible también!

  2. I love this cheerful and stylish take on a "monochrome" outfit. The fabric for the skirt has a great pattern and the color you achieved dying it is perfect. Your bangles and necklace are delights. And a red trench is mandatory in any woman's wardrobe. (Don't think I missed those cute socks peeking out!)

  3. I love your skirt and the colour is marvellous. You look lovely and very autumnal but so cheerful!

    You are very on trend with the trench coat as they are a 'thing' for autumn, I believe, but trench coats have never been out of fashion - they are a true classic. You are clever,not only making skirts; dyeing them but making jewellery, too! The bag from your mum is fabulous.

    Hope you have a lovely week.

  4. That skirt is absolutely wonderful, what a brilliant creation!
    I love the trenchcoat - no boring beige for you! xxx

  5. This is so pretty! I love these dark reds.

  6. Orange is such a zingy colours, which really comes into its own in late Summer and early Autumn. Your outfit is such a blaze of colour, and you are looking fabulous! Besos xxx

  7. The colours in this outfit are so rich and dramatic.
