layers & rain

Spring has sprung in all its unpredictable glory which means sun and rain (sometimes together), allergies and asthenia. It's not my favourite season, but I'm doing it better every year. Taking one week of holidays in March really makes a difference in my mood, it has helped me to deal with my usual asthenia.
Weather could be a problem, however we can keep ourselves comfy and cool by wearing light layers (and a colorful rain coat if necessary). I've been wearing some summer dresses with a layer underneath (a striped t-shirt) and my light coats. The time window to wear this kind of coats is really short, so we can make the most of this season and enjoy them as much as possible!. Let's enjoy spring!
Linking Visible Monday(asap) and wishing you a visible week!

La primavera ya está aquí en todo su impredecible esplendor, lo que significa lluvia y sol, a veces al mismo tiempo, alergias y astenia primaveral. No es mi estación favorita, pero cada año lo llevo mejor. Creo que tomarme una semana de vacaciones en marzo está marcando la diferencia, me ayuda mucho a mantener a raya esa astenia primaveral que otros años me dejaba muy perjudicada.
El tiempo puede ser un problema, pero podemos mantener la actitud y la comodidad, superponiendo capas ligeras de ropa, y haciéndonos con un impermeable de colores alegres. Yo me he estado poniendo vestidos de verano, con una camiseta (de rayas) por debajo y luego un abrigo ligero. Este tipo de abrigos se pueden llevar en tan pocas ocasiones que hay que aprovechar y ponérselos ya mismo. Hay que sacarle partido a esta primavera!
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible.

I'm sorry for these crap pictures, I took them by myself and it was rainy and windy both days, so it was a real challenge!.

Siento mucho que estas fotos sean tan pobres, las tuve que sacar con el temporizador y los dos días había lluvia y viento, así que fue todo un reto!

  1. Oh yes, we should celebrate Spring! Especially in April, that pesky month, any Spring weather can be over in the blink of an eye! Often, there are four seasons in one day, which makes it a challenge to get dressed. But you're doing it brilliantly as ever, you really are the Queen of Layering! I love that plaid jacket worn over that fabulous maxi, and the girly dress with the blue raincoat and the pops of pink! xxx

  2. I'm with Ann there, it is the case of four seasons in a day! I think you're doing a brilliant job with dressing for this schizophrenic weather. I do love your bluebell-coloured crochet waistcoat and the mega paisley dress with the salmon pink trainers and scarf is a joy to behold. xxx

  3. I had to google "asthenia" to see what you're coping with. Oh my, yes! On any given day we're too hot for an hour, too cold for an hour and possibly getting wet or blown over by wind in between. I love your layers and your colors. I'm inspired to today to wear what I'm in the mood for and bulk it up if need be for a less than cooperative day! Thanks!

  4. I'm sorry to hear you've been suffering. Our spring can't decide between summer or winter either.
    Loving all your beautiful outfits.
