autumn & layers

I've had a busy week and a busy weekend too. I have been volunteering every evening at a second hand market to raise funds for children education. I think it was quite sucessful, even if it was impossible to sell all the stuff which people donated: lots of stuff, sometimes trash, sometimes a treasure!. Obviously, I've been also a good costumer and purchased some books, some presents for friends, a printed t-shirt, and a strapless dress, which is going to be revamped into a skirt.
Then, my parents came to stay with us for some days, and we've been going up and down, visiting some villages and having some delightful food and wine!. Hard work, but someone has to do it.
And this is what I worn on Friday to go out for lunch. I worn something similar (only lighter) last August. This floral dress is perfect for layering, but it's going to take a rest with some of my summer clothes until spring. I've been putting off it, but it's time that my wardrobe switch between seasons!
Visible Monday is on vacation but we could keep its attitude working!. Wish you a visible week!

He tenido una semana ocupadísima, y el fin de semana también. He ayudado como voluntaria en un mercadillo de segunda mano para recaudar fondos para educación infantil, y creo que ha salido bastante bien, aunque era imposible vender todo lo que la gente había donado: montones de cosas, a veces porquerías, a veces maravillas. Evidentemente, he sido también una buena cliente, y he comprado unos libros, regalos para amigos, una camiseta y un vestido sin tirantes que se va a convertir en falda.
Luego vinieron mis padres a quedarse unos días, y hemos estado yendo arriba y abajo, visitando algunos pueblos y degustando platos estupendos y vinos también!. Es un trabajo duro, pero alguien tiene que hacerlo.
Y esto es lo que me puse el viernes para salir a comer fuera. Muy similar a algo que ya saqué en Agosto, sólo que era una versión más ligera. Este vestido floral queda genial en superposiciones, pero ya va a tomarse un descanso, junto con mucha de mi ropa de verano, hasta la primavera. Lo he estado retrasando todo lo posible, pero ya es hora de cambiar de estación el guardarropa.
Esta semana Visible Monday está de vacaciones, pero podemos mantener la actitud!. Así que os deseo una semana muy visible.

And this is another purchase at a charity fair which I visited last Sunday. My bijouterie collection is growing fast!

Y esta es otra compra en un mercadillo solidario que visité el pasado Domingo. Mi colección de bisuterías está aumentando rápidamente!

  1. Love that new necklace you scored!

    You are quite the queen of layering.

    I was going to start my wardrobe switchover today and then it just felt too overwhelming. I need a full day for that. When I'm motivated!

    Sounds like you are keeping your days filled with heart warming experiences. That's a good thing.


  2. Helping out with a good cause brought you some great karma, that's a fab necklace.
    Loving that floral trench.
    I packed away my lightweight & backless cotton dresses a month ago, everything else will be fine for Winter with thermals underneath! xxx

  3. I love those pants with the flap. A very handy colour too. Goes well with your new bag...generous Mum!
    Your glasses are very cute too.
    I have put away my moth attracting clothes for the summer, but I have so few clothes they can all stay out. Much less work!

  4. It would be hard to work at a Second Hand Market without finding a few treasures for yourself. Sounds like you have been keeping very busy between volunteering and entertaining your parents.

  5. Quite a busy weekend indeed, but sounds like it was a lot of fun! I love the colours of that floral linen dress, which goes really well with your shirt and shoes. The jewellery you found at the charity fair is fabulous! Besos xxx

  6. I loved your colour combo of olive green and pink! I do love how you layer your clothes and those shoes are marvellous. You certainly had a busy week but it's good to have busy times sometimes then you appreciate the quiet times even more!


  7. What a busy life! Lots of work and fun too. I remember these olive pants - always happy to see them, such a cool item. The colors/layers are fantastic together, and so very you! Love your new necklace, what a great piece!
