blooming in autumn

As you can see, our unusually warm weather is driving roses mad, and many other plants have being blooming too. It's a crazy Autumn!
I've been making the most of it, and wearing sandals and dresses as many times as possible. Actually it's quite chilly in the morning, but warm in the evening, so I've enjoyed some nice walks (and sipping a drink on a terrace), even if water shortage is also in my mind.
It's time for another fabulous Visible Monday, let's party!

Como podéis ver, este tiempo tan desacostumbradamente cálido está volviendo locos a los rosales, y hay otras plantas también floreciendo. Es un loco y floreciente otoño!
He estado aprovechándolo al máximo, llevando sandalias y vestidos todas las veces que he podido. En realidad, está bastante fresco por las mañanas, pero agradable por la tarde, así que he disfrutado paseando (o tomando algo en una terraza), aunque la sequía sigue preocupando.
Es hora de otro Lunes Visible Visible Monday, así que espero que lo disfrutéis!

I don't wear this dress very frequently, but still love it. I bought it at a second hand shop, twelve years ago!, and I have to repair it every time I wear. I think it deserves all the work.
I picked this bag, which is also vintage, however I don't know if both of them belong to the same era!.

No me pongo este vestido muy frecuentemente, pero me encanta. Lo compré en una tienda de segunda mano, hará unos doce años, y tengo que hacerle alguna reparación cada vez que me lo pongo. Igualmente merece la pena.
Elegí este bolso, que es también vintage, aunque no sé si ambos son de la misma época.

  1. That dress! I would fight you for it, I love it so much and it looks amazing on you. xxx

  2. What a beautiful dress and it looks marvellous on you. I remember having a similar bag to yours in the 1970s.

    I love the pink/yellow/turquoise colour combination in the the second outfit photo; you do look so cheerful and bright. Love the accessories, too.

    It's great we can continue with summer clothing in October let's make the most of it!


  3. That dress is fabulous on you. Keep repairing it, if need be! The 2nd outfit is lovely. Love the colors and how you accessorized. You are always a walking piece of art - a joy to behold.

  4. You are looking absolutely stunning in that dress, Monica! Those pink pants are fantastic too: that outfit is such an explosion of colour. I love Sacramento's brooch as well, and all your other colourful accessories! Besos xxx

  5. Oh my goodness Monica, you look fabulous in a maxi dress! You have the perfect height and proprtions to wear this particular frock and show it off to it's best. Even though it's not as bright and colourful as you usually wear, I really love this on you. Your second outfit is gorgeous in all the rainbow bright colours, but my heart is won over by the glory of your maxi my dear!

    Have a lovely week!

  6. Oh my that dress IS fantastic! You are so right...when something is that good you don't mind spending the time repairing it.

    Love the bag too.


  7. That bias cut dress hangs so beautifully. I love the sleeve effect!
    Well worth the time spent mending. Xo Jazzy Jack

  8. Te encuentro muy elegante con el vestido largo.

  9. I don't think I've seen you wear a maxi-dress before! The dress is just lovely on you, and definitely worth keeping, even if it needs constant care.

    Wonderful colour combination in the second outfit - pure Monica! We are finally getting some real fall weather with cooler temperatures here.

  10. Wow! I love all of your colourful accessories! You look fabulous! XXX

  11. These two outfits are my new favorites of yours! My dear, how absolutely GORGEOUS you look in this dress! It really is a special number, and I am glad you keep it for years, and yes, sometimes, we have to do little repairs to the things we love. It's a keeper!

    The yellow cardigan with magenta pants and this lovely blouse and colorful beads is another show stopper! You look so beautiful, dear!
