black and white

Actually these pictures show how quickly our weather has changed from unseasonably warm to freezing temperatures. I wore a light coat last week when it was hot enough to wear open-toe shoes. Then I had to wear a raincoat because of the wind, but it was still quite warm. But weekend has been like jumping into the bleak winter, (light) snowflakes included. So it has been all about puff coats and boots, which I had to unpack from their boxes. Unexpected and confusing. Moreover, time change didn't help to avoid this fuzziness.
Nowadays I'm taking it easy, there's snow on the nearby mountains and it's time for some sewing, cooking and crafting at home!. And some excursions too, because there are two bank holidays this week.
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week!

En realidad, estas fotos muestran lo rápido que hemos cambiado de un tiempo increíblemente bueno, fuera de lo habitual, a tener temperaturas heladoras. La semana pasada era posible llevar un abrigo ligero e incluso zapatos abiertos. Luego tuve que cambiar a la gabardina por el viento, pero todavía hacía bueno. Pero el fin de semana ha sido como recibir de golpe el crudo invierno, con unos copos de nieve incluídos (unos pocos). Así que hubo que echar mano de los abrigos acolchados y las botas, que estaban todavía guardados. Una cosa muy chocante y desconcertante. Y además, el cambio de hora ayuda al sentimiento general de confusión.
Pero ahora mismo me lo tomo con calma, se ven nevados los montes de los alrededores y es buen momento para hacer manualidades, costura o cocinar. Y también para excursiones, porque hay dos días de fiesta esta semana!
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible!

I've been out for a weekend workshop in a nearby city, which has some fab urban art.

He estado el fin de semana en una ciudad cercana que tiene este arte urbano tan chulo.

  1. Now that's how to layer up! I love all your super groovy combinations, you're always giving me ides of colours I hadn't thought of putting together before. The turquoise one is particularly wonderful especially with that amazing street art behind you.
    We've had snow, torrential rain and frost since Friday night, it's horrible! xxx

  2. The difference in weather in only a couple of days time is really unbelievable! I guess it was a long time coming, though, and we've been really spoiled with all the gorgeous weather we had that late into October. So far, fingers crossed, we haven't had any snow ... Love all your layering. That tunic at the top is quite an amazing piece, so many different patterns to look at! Combining two different necklaces is something I haven't thought of. Putting together pink and green is right up my street. My favourite is that photo of you with that amazing street art as a backdrop! Besos xxx

  3. We are having similar weather here too, Monica. So far, no snow! It's back to warm coats, gloves and scarves and lots of layers.

    I love how you layer your outfits and the lovely bright colours you wear. It's so interesting to look at; you must get lots of admiring stares and you certainly cheer people up. I loved your wonderfully patterned tunic - what a brilliant buy. I loved your pink and green necklaces together; that's a fab colour combination.

    The street art was fantastic!

    Stay warm,

  4. That top with the patchwork is so fun!

    Love how you always manage to make such bold statements with colour and layers.

    You look very upbeat despite all the changing weather. Maybe that is those two bank holidays on the horizon : )

    You chose the perfect location for that last shot of all the turquoise. That red umbrella just pops!


  5. I hate how the weather just turns so quickly! Your colours are so inspiring - that red coat is so wonderful. I love the turquoise backdrop on that last picture - perfect! Is the haircut/style new? It looks fabulous!

  6. Beautiful, brilliant ensembles, dear Monica! I especially am taken with the first one, with the gorgeous red coat. I love urban art - what a gorgeous wall! It's time to cozy up, take it easy and get creative, I feel the same! I wonder what workshop you took.
    Lots of love!

  7. Marvelous ensembles!! Love all the colours. The weather is up and down here as well, sunny one minute and freezing the next!! Hope you have a super day x

  8. Thank you for some very inspiring layering! The red coat is gorgeous, and perfect with the old tartan bag and leopard scarf. Funny how old pieces can get new lives with new "playmates". Love the last outfit too, and that incredible artwork behind you! Even though we've had one day with a few drops of snow, Denmark has experienced the most strange autumn weather, much warmer and sunnier than usually. I'm not complaining, but it does feel strange to be picking strawberries on October 30th., like two months too late!
