paisley beach dress

Last week I bought this dress at a street market, which I'm used to pay a visit every Sunday. It's a long walk under the trees, with lots of stalls cramped with usual 'made in china' fast fashion but also espadrilles, vegetables, bread, churros, textiles, plants and some second hand piles (which I like to rummage in!). This time they were also selling off beach dresses (made in India) which looked pretty appealing to me. Well, I paid five euros for this dress and I wore it twice in a row (it's totally wash'n'go!) so I think it has been a good purchase. It doesn't need to be ironed, so I'm including it in my holidays packing list. And there are some layering chances to make it wearable through the seasons, which is something fabulous if you live in a four seasons climate. Actually, I love my summer clothes, but I love even more any cloth that I can keep on wearing when it's chilly.
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week!

La semana pasada compré este vestido en un mercadillo que suelo visitar cada domingo. Está en un paseo bajo los árboles, con montones de puestos llenitos de la habitual mercancía hecha en China, pero también alpargatas, verduras, pan, churros, telas, plantas y unas cuantas montoneras de ropa de segunda mano (de las que me gusta revolver!). Esta vez también estaban liquidando los vestidos de playa (made in India) que me parecieron muy atrayentes. Así que pagué cinco euros por este vestido, que me he puesto inmediatamente dos veces seguidas (es de lavar y poner!), así que creo que he hecho una buena compra. No necesita planchado, así que también lo he apuntado en mi lista de ropa para equipaje de vacaciones. Y además, le veo posibilidades de superposición como para poder llevarlo en otras épocas del año, lo cual está muy bien porque el verano no es eterno, y vivimos en un clima de cuatro estaciones. Realmente me encanta mi ropa de verano, pero me gusta más aún cuando se puede seguir llevándola cuando refresca.
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible!
