faking spring in a raincoat

Last days I've been pretending it's spring, wearing summery clothes under my raincoat, but I was not able to wear my sandals and even my sneakers got soaked a few times. Faking spring can be a challenge!.
I don't feel particularly disappointed because of this weather, as I'm not a huge fan of summer hot weather. Rain can be annoying sometimes, as I can't enjoy my usual long walks nor sit on a terrace, but temperatures are mild and days are long, and I'm ok with that.
This dress was bought on March2017 (at a charity shop) and worn a lot of times in the summertime, which makes my 3€ investment really successful!. I do love its muslin cotton fabric, particularly because it doesn't need ironing, it's really wash'n'go and so summery. I think that I'll keep on wearing it, whatever the weather.
Rainy weather predictions go for at least another four days, so my raincoats are going to be really trendy these days!.

Estos últimos días he seguido con mi actitud primaveral, poniéndome ropa de verano aunque fuese debajo del impermeable. Lo que no he sido capaz de hacer es llevar sandalias e incluso mis zapatillas se me han empapado (varias veces). La actitud primaveral es un reto!
Tampoco es que me sienta mal con este tiempo, ya que no soy nada amante del calor veraniego. Puede que la lluvia sea molesta a veces, porque no puedes salir a caminar por los parques ni sentarte en una terraza, pero las temperaturas son templadas, los días son largos y a mí me parece muy agradable.
Este vestido lo compré allá por Marzo2017 en una tienda solidaria y me lo he puesto un montón en el verano, lo que significa un verdadero éxito para haberme costado 3€!. Me encanta esta tela de bambula, sobre todo porque no hay que plancharla, es de 'lavar y poner', muy veraniega. Creo que voy a seguir usando este vestido, venga el tiempo como venga!
Los pronósticos del tiempo dan lluvia para al menos cuatro días, así que los impermeables seguirán siendo tendencia!

  1. The combination with this beautiful pink is gorgeous! And your colorful dress with a stripy shirt - so fun!
    Like you, I don't deal with very hot weather well, and much prefer mild temps. It's been a cool week here too, in the 60s F, which is low for this time of year. But I don't complain - there will be time for wearing sundresses! I need a good raincoat though - can you believe that I don't have one?
    Lots of love!

  2. A dress which is wash 'n go is a winner in my book, and even more so if it's got such a fabulous print! I love it combined with turquoise and pink. I'm not a big fan of warm weather either, but it seems it's always one or the other, either it's too warm or it rains :-) But after the heatwave we've been having, I've been looking at my raincoats longingly! Hope you'll be able to do without them soon! Besos xxx

  3. That dress is gorgeous, the epitome of spring even if the weather isn't playing along! xxx

  4. I love that dress with striped shirt. I remember having prints like that.
    You look springy and carefree, despite the rain. Your raincoat is very Monica!

  5. Sorry to hear you've had so much rain. It's definitely summer here in the UK. I like the outfit very much and what a bargain the paisley print dress was! I loved it with the pink scarf and the striped tee underneath it.

    Hope the weekend is going well for you.

  6. It is not nice you had so much rain! But I'm relieved to read that you nevertheless smile so much! Love the colourful look!
