fucsia & turquoise

I've been dressing in a riot of colour last week and received some comments (most of them were compliments, which is good enough for me, as you can't please everyone). Probably these same colour combos would be considered acceptable in summertime and people wouldn't blink an eye on them. But I like to wear the clothes that tickle my fancy, black or colourful, whatever the weather.
I would love to see any coats in red, pink or citron, instead of the usual sea of black puffy coats, even if I sometimes dress in black too!
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week!

He estado vistiéndome en todo este colorido vivo y brillante y he recibido algunos comentarios (la mayoría fueron cumplidos y con eso me vale, porque no se puede gustar a todo el mundo). Probablemente, estas mismas combinaciones de colores hubieran pasado desapercibidos en verano, la misma gente que me hizo observaciones ni se hubiera fijado. Pero a mí me gusta elegir mi ropa según me apetece, sea todo negro o multicolor, haga el tiempo que haga.
Me encantaría ver abrigos en rojo, rosa o verdelima, en vez del habitual mar de acolchados negros!. Aunque a veces yo también vista de negro!
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible!

  1. Jajajajajajajaajjjjjj me ha encantado lo de mar de acolchados negros. Hoy estuve en Zara y finalizando las rebajas y lo que habia era una inundación de plumiferos negros que parecia una marea negra.
    por cierto la pulsera multicolor de la primera imagen me parece PRECIOSA. un beso de una fan

    1. me alegra que te haya hecho gracia, pero es que es tal cual, un mar de acolchados negros! (y pantalones negros, y botas negras!)
      La pulsera es del mercadillo de la Protectora de Animales!

  3. You look like springtime! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  4. Such a beautiful marriage of colours! I love your boldly patterned skirt and clever you you made it yourself and the cardigan. Well done you. I love your new bangle too, what a lovely match to the skirt. The paisley trousers are great and what a very pretty cardigan that is. La Redoute does some lovely things things but I always wait for the sales - and I haven't bought anything from them for about 3 or 4 years. The second necklace is fabulous! I almost bought a similar purple one last week but it was too expensive.

    I bet you make a lot of people very happy in your wonderful colours and patterns!

    Hope you have a lovely week!

  5. You are always a sight for sore eyes, Monica, with the amazing colour combinations you wear. My special favourite is your happy IKEA fabric skirt, which looks really fab with the pink cardigan, turquoise opaques and pink trainers. And I'm totally in love with the necklace of your second outfit, too! I wonder why it is that wearing colours seems to be more acceptable in Summer. It should be quite the opposite, really, don't you think? We certainly need a bit of colour as an antidote in the dark Winter months. And you certainly deliver with your colourful outfits each and every time! Besos xxx

  6. No one is wearing bright colours here - it is a sea of black, down-filled coats. When I wear my pink winter jacket I usually get comments on it because it stands out so much. You are a breath of Spring!

  7. I've been dreading my return to England - after five weeks of women dressed in colour it's nothing but a sea of black and grey nylon puffa jackets! Nothing like that for you I'm happy to see, a joy to behold in your riot of Spring colour! x

  8. You are an absolute breath of fresh air in your happy skirt Monica and those paisley trousers have won my heart too. I love all of your colours and you wear them so well - thanks for this wonderful, cheery post! Have a super week! xxx

  9. Wonderful array of bright happy colours!! So fantastic, I love it all!! I hope you have a super day x

  10. That skirt makes me so happy (my tights match it today)! I love seeing all these bright in winter. What is it with dull-coloured coats?? I need a new puffer (I hate the colour of my current poo-brown one), and there is nothing in an actual COLOUR. Hoping you are having a good week!
