joyful tunic & evening walk

Last week I saw this tunic in a shop window and the next moment I was trying it and taking out the credit card. You can call it an impulse purchase, but I felt like 'it has my name written all over it' and never regretted. I believe in fate! (not really, only for illustrative purposes!). This has been a big expense for a small budget like mine and totally out of my plans to reduce consumerism. It's not that I can't afford it, it's that I've been buying mostly second hand and I'd like to keep it this way.
I thought that it will take ages until temperatures drop enough to wear a full sleeves garment, so this tunic was kindly stored. But we have had some chilly evenings and I was in a bad mood, annoyed and tired, so this tunic appeared like the perfect mood booster to improve my attitude. If I was to name my clothes (Sheila rocks it), this would be my joyful tunic for sure!.
Mr. A. took my photos, as usual, when we went for a walk to run errands and then have an 'apéro' and my tunic received some compliments!. Joyful indeed!
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week!

La semana pasada ví esta túnica en un escaparate y al momento ya estaba probándomela y sacando la tarjeta. Podría parecer una compra impulsiva, pero yo más bien lo veo como que 'llevaba mi nombre escrito' y no me arrepiento!. Ha sido el destino (en realidad no, sólo lo digo como figura retórica!). Esta compra se me ha salido por completo de mi (pequeño) presupuesto y de mis planes para reducir el consumismo. No es que no me lo pueda permitir, es que he estado comprando sobre todo segunda mano y quiero seguir así!
Pensé que tardaría siglos en poderme poner manga larga, así que guardé la túnica a la espera de temperaturas más bajas. Pero hemos tenido algunas tardes frescas y yo estaba de un humor de perros, irritable y cansada, así que esta túnica me pareció que me animaría muchísimo y mejoraría mi humor. Si me diese por ponerle nombre (como hace Sheila), esta sería mi túnica 'alegría'.
Mr. A. me sacó unas fotos, como de costumbre, cuando íbamos a dar una vuelta haciendo recados y luego tomar el aperitivo y mi nueva túnica recibió algún cumplido y todo!. Alegría total!
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible!

  1. As soon as I saw the photo of you in this I *knew* it was meant for you. I don't know anyone else that could wear it as well. It represents your love of colour, pattern and Spain. I'd say this is a winner, even if you had to buy it retail. You'll love it for a long time.


  2. What a gorgeous top, I love the colours, it looks perfect on you :) x

  3. I'm not surprised you fell head over heels for this tunic, which is a real work of art with with all the colours and patterns going on. And of course it had your name all over it, so you really had no choice but to buy it ;-) I always have some trepidation when buying retails as well, but shouldn't we be forgiven if it only happens once in a while?

  4. Your tunic is fantastic and I agree that it was made for you. These are the occasions - if you do not buy it, you will regret it endlessly. So: Enjoy! Juliane

  5. I am not surprised that this beautiful piece called your name. The shape is lovely, and the colours are so you. The embroidery adds an extra touch of magic to an already fabulous piece. I still buy things retail, from small locally run businesses, but still retail nonetheless. Sometimes a piece just has to come home with you.

  6. Oh, your impulse purchase is perfect and for sure a wonderful mood booster! I'm convinced this tunic can make only very good mood and I see you are laughing despite the mood you had in the pictures! Wish you further many fun with your tunic and a happy new week.
