birthday outfit & walks with mom

This is what I wore on my birthday, which was a #%& hot day (as it's used to be) so I picked this linen tunic and a pair of bermudas. Not the most flattering outfit ever, but I felt comfortable and cool the whole day long! and wore my new hat!. Every year I indulge myself with a totally unnecessary item for my birthday, usually a bold accessory. I think that my hard earned money is well invested in a citron straw hat!

Esto es lo que me puse por mi cumpleaños, que hacía un calor de #%&#, como suele pasar en estas fechas, así que elegí una túnica de lino y bermudas. No es que sea lo más favorecedor del mundo, pero, oye, yo estuve cómoda y fresquita todo el día, y además, estrenando sombrero. Cada año me permito el lujo de comprarme algo totalmente innecesario por mi cumple, generalmente un accesorio llamativo. Creo que invertir mi dinerito duramente ganado en un sombrero bien grande y verde es una excelente idea!

Next day, I went for a walk with my mom, which was styling a cool black&white dress, so we told Mr.A. to take pictures!. She looks way more elegant than I do!

Joining Visible Monday and also linking Fake It Until You Make It. And wishing you a visible week!

Al día siguiente, fui a dar una vuelta con mi madre, que se había puesto este vestido blanco&negro tan chulo, así que le pedimos a Mr.A. que nos sacara fotos. Iba muy elegante, mucho más que yo!

Enlazo al Visible Monday y también al Fake It Until You Make It, y espero que tengáis una semana muy visible.

This is a mural painting by a local illustrator which I like. It makes more interesting a parking!

Este mural de un ilustrador de por aquí, que me gusta. Y también hace más interesante el aparcamiento.

  4. Of course you can indulge yourself, and not only on your birthday. The lime coloured hat is just perfect, you chose well. I love its colour with the blue of your tunic and the pink of your sandals and necklace! You look very like your Mum, and now I know where you've got your fashion sense from. Two fabulous ladies!

  5. Happy Birthday once again, dear Monica!! The hat is just fabulous! I want it too!!! And the color combo is just perfect for our themed link-up this month (Green and Blue), yay! I love the photos of you with your Mum, such happy and beautiful stylish women. The blue tunic is gorgeous on you, love it with the orange beads! Staying cool while being stylish is such a skill, I am still mastering it - summer is the hardest time for me to look stylish. But you can teach classes!
