pink & green

It has been a pretty relaxed week but with an unpredictable weather. I went to the swimming pool on Tuesday, but Wednesday was stormy (it rained cats and dogs) and then Thursday was really pleasant to go for a walk. Not the most usual kind of weather in July.
This is what I've worn today to go to work, all in pink and green, and this straw bag that I've been wearing almost every day last weeks. It doesn't look like a very practical bag, but it Is! It can accommodate a bottle of water, a shawl, a hat and other everyday essentials!.

He tenido una semana muy relajada, pero el tiempo ha estado muy loco. Calor como para ir a la piscina el martes, tormentas el miércoles (llovió a cántaros) y luego estupendo para pasear el jueves. No es que sea el clima más normal en julio!
Esto es lo que me he puesto hoy para ir al trabajo, todo en rosa y verde, y el bolso que he estado llevando casi todos los días en las últimas semanas. No parece un bolso muy práctico, pero Sí que lo es: cabe una botella de agua, el chal, un sombrero y todas las demás cositas necesarias.

- skirt, La Redoute (ten years old!) / falda, de hace como diez años
- green blouse, Festa (sales!) / blusa verde, de rebajas!
- sandals, chiruca (factory outlet) / sandalias, de outlet de fábrica
- pendant, Silvereira (old) / colgante
- shawl, bought when in holiday / chal, lo compré de vacaciones

My new sport sandals were too flat for me, so I took them to the cobbler and he added this little heel and even painted a strip of pink on it to continue the sandal design. Isn't it fabulous and a lovely detail?

Estas nuevas sandalias deportivas me resultaban muy planas, así que las llevé al zapatero y me añadió un poco de tacón, y además, le pintó esta franja rosa para seguir el dibujo de la sandalia. ¿A que es estupendo?. Un trabajo bien hecho!

I really enjoyed the Thursday movie night, an open air cinema where we watched The Triplets of Belleville, a movie which I recommend you. I had watched it some years ago and loved the music, the humour and some amazing characters who made me think on Monsieur Hulot, a fav classic of mine.
The open air cinema is located in the backyard of a winery and there's some music before the movie (and some wine too, obviously) to wait until the sunset. Totally my kind of cultural activity!

Lo pasé muy bien yendo al cine al aire libre el jueves noche, a ver les Triplettes de Belleville, una película de animación que os recomiendo. La había visto ya hacía un tiempo, y me encantó la música, el humor y el tono surreal que me hizo recordar a Monsieur Hulot, un clásico genial.
La proyección se hace en el patio trasero de una bodega y hay una actuación musical antes de la película (y también vino, claro está) mientras se espera que caiga el sol. Mi tipo de actividad cultural!

  1. You outfit is very summery.

    I love the idea of an outdoor cinema. I'm guessing you don't have many mosquitos out your way.


  2. Your outfit is oh so gorgeous, Monica. What a wonderful skirt, and I love, love, love how you're combining green and pink, which is one of my favourite combinations. It looks so fresh and summery. What a genius idea of your cobbler to paint a strip of pink on the heel. Such pretty sandals too, and I'm sure they'll be so much more comfortable. It's no good if a heel's too low! Love the outdoor cinema! Besos xxx

  3. This is such a cool outfit, Monica! I love the green and pink combo. Your earrings and necklaces are fabulous too!

  4. Pink and green , the colours of Bollywood! Absolutely glorious.
    It sounds like we're both experiencing unusual weather - here it's endless sunshine and sizzling temperatures and I'm loving it!
    I've been to open air cinemas at festivals and absolutely loved them (although here we usually have to wear a coat!) xxx

  5. Love these colors together, and your bag does look like a practical as well as chic one. And the open-air movies - such a summer treat. xox


  6. Pink and green is the perfect combination for summer

  7. Pink and green is one of my absolute favourite colour pairings - I love this outfit Monica! I saw Triplets of Belleville many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters did remind me of ones from Jacque Tati films! M. Hulot's Holiday is one of my all-time fave films.

    1. mwhaha, me too! Les vacances de M.Hulot is one of my favorite films ever!

  8. What a fabulous colour combination you look lovely. The sandals are amazing and what a clever idea to add heels. I love the idea of an outdoor cinema...
