pink crochet & cotton gauze

Temperatures plummeted from 39ºC to 23ºC last week, which I personally found a relief (even if it is going to be a short relief, as heat is coming back!). Last heatwave kept me at home after work, only venturing out to go to the swimming pool (and only because it's just around the corner). After some days of confinement I was really bored, so I'm enjoying these days, walking, running errands and having some social life!
I wore this light dress, made of cotton gauze, and my new crochet cardi that I recently finished. I'm not totally happy with the cardy because I was looking for a net effect with bigger gaps, but it's difficult to crochet this style using a fine thread. Anyway, I think that I'll keep it this way as I'm too lazy to undo the whole thing (who knows?!). This is a color I was used to hate and now it's becoming a favorite of mine!
Linking Visible Monday and Fake It Until You Make It and wishing you a visible week!

Las temperaturas se vinieron abajo de 39ºC a 23ºC la semana pasada, lo que personalmente me pareció un alivio, aunque vaya a ser un alivio momentáneo, porque ya están subiendo otra vez. La última ola de calor me ha tenido encerrada en casa después del trabajo, sólo saliendo a la piscina y porque está a la vuelta de la esquina. Después de varios días de confinamiento, ya estaba aburridísima, así que estoy disfrutando de estos días, saliendo mucho, haciendo recados y teniendo vida social!
Me puse este vestido ligero de gasa de algodón y esta chaqueta de ganchillo que acabé hace poco. No estoy del todo contenta con la chaqueta, estaba buscando un efecto red con huecos grandes, pero es difícil conseguirlo con un hilo tan fino. De todos modos, creo que la dejaré como está, porque soy muy perezosa para deshacerla entera (quién sabe qué hare!). Este color que tanto odiaba se está convirtiendo en uno de mis favoritos.
Enlazo Visible Monday y al Fake It Until You Make It y os deseo una semana muy visible!

  2. Your cardigan turned out amazing! Bravo to you for being so creative and so patient to crochet such a piece.


  3. What a cute dress! I do some crocheting myself, and that's a gorgeous cardigan, Monica! Well done! I love the bright pink colour. I also used to be not a fan of any shade of pink, but I've come around!

  4. That dress is indeed quite a versatile piece! I love it combined with the white leggings and the bright pink made-by-you cardigan. Even if it wasn't exactly what you had in mind, I can see you wearing it lots. Our temperature has plummeted as well, I do hope we've had all the hot weather this Summer ... Besos xxx

  5. I absolutely love that cardi, I'd put up with the drop in temperatures a lot better if I owned that beauty! xxx

  6. How good it cooled down at least for a while as I can imagine you enjoy now the possible social life and doing your errands with this temperatures. Your cardigan turned out absolutely great and I love it totally how you have styled it!

  8. Ich liebe deinen Cardigan,
    die Farbe und der grobe Strick sind einfach nur toll und perfekt für den Sommer.
    Wenn es kühler wird, kann man die Strickjacke schnell drüber ziehen :)

  9. It's a fabulous dress - love the Paisley pattern and the colours. The crochet cardigan is absolutely lovely and I think it is 'net' like so definitely open work. Well done you!

  10. What a totally fabulous outfit Monica! I love this dress (of course - it's paisley print for goodness sake!) and your newly finished cardi goes with it like a dream. How funny that you used to hate this colour - I did too! Have our tastes matured I wonder? Anyway, I did like how you styled the dress those previous times too. The dress is an absolute winner - lucky you for finding that one!
