errands & purple

The weather has been unseasonably warm last weekend, which is becoming pretty usual and making more and more people worried about it. However we made the most of the situation so we went for a walk and run errands on Saturday morning. Obviously we also had our usual apéro, which is one of my favourite traditions ever.
We took advantage of the pretty grocery shops on a side of the market building, they always have the most colorful vegetables on their shelves!. Even the market, a beautiful 20's building, has some colorful tiles and lots of plaster garlands representing local vegetables and fruits!

Hemos tenido un tiempo inusualmente bueno el fin de semana, del todo fuera de lo normal, pero se está convirtiendo en algo habitual y preocupante. A pesar de todo, procuramos aprovechar la situación, así que salimos a caminar y a hacer recados el sábado por la mañana y, evidentemente, también tomamos el vermú/aperitivo que es una de mis tradiciones favoritas.
En un lateral del mercado de abastos hay estos puestos de verduras tan bien colocados, que siempre tienen las verduras expuestas en todo su colorido. Incluso el edificio mismo, que es de los años 20, tiene unos azulejos y unas guirnaldas de yeso con motivos de vegetales y frutas que son muy vistosos.

And we also took pictures in front of the Theatre which encouraged to some tourists to do the same!. I recommend you to have a walk on your city while pretending you're a tourist, it gives you a different point of view.
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week!

Y también sacamos unas fotos delante del teatro, lo que parece que animó a algunos turistas a hacer lo mismo. Os recomiendo dar una vuelta por vuestros alrededores, haciendo un poco el turista, seguro que os aporta un punto de vista diferente!
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible!

  1. Waxed cotton! How fabulous is that skirt? I love it!
    What an array of fruit and vegetables. I love the plaster friezes with the swags of fruit and that gorgeously elegant theatre. It's a good reminder to be a tourist in your own town, sometimes I'll look up and see architectural details I've never noticed before. xxx
    PS I think we're sharing weather!

  2. What a lovely print on your skirt. I do love African prints. Love your little jacket with it; funnily enough the tights look cobalt blue on my screen. How lucky you can shop your mum's closet!!

    The tiles on the theatre building are exquisite and I love the frieze with all the fruit and veg on it. There are often so many details on buildings that it's easy to overlook so it's a great idea to pretend to be a tourist in your own town - or even just look up for a change!!

    It's been unseasonably warm here too; very strange weather indeed.

    Hope you can enjoy more sunshine this week.

  3. You look radiant, love the colours and design. Perfect for a lighter day!!! What wonderful buildings too, I love them!! I hope you have a gorgeous week ahead xox besos!

  4. You look magnificent in your royal blues and purples! I love playing tourist in my town. What is up with all this crazy unseasonable weather!?

  5. You're looking fabulous, Monica! That skirt is a triumph, and I love how you styled it with fuchsia and purple and, not to forget, the stripy top! I love being a tourist in my own town, and if the weather's fine, I'm off exploring Antwerp in my lunch break. And we do have some very fine weather right now, just like you. It is crazy, but there's no reason not to enjoy it. Love the fruit and veg stall and that theatre is magnificent! Besos xxx

  6. You have the perfect town to be a tourist in! Love the way you wore the skirt. Your posts bring much needed joy!
