We went for a short outing to the coast and enjoyed a sunny day and a really pleasant temperature (a merely 25ºC with a light breeze). It would be a perfect beach day but we had other plans which included a short walk and lunch.
I wore my shawl for sunblocking as I didn't applied sunscreen on my shoulders as it was cloudy in the early morning. My arms were a little bit 'sunkissed' at the end of the day but I managed to avoid a sunburn!.

Hemos salido de excursión a la costa y tuvimos un día soleado y una temperatura buenísima (tan sólo 25ºC con una brisa ligera). Hubiera sido un día de playa perfecto pero teníamos otros planes que incluyeron este paseo y luego comer por ahí tan ricamente.
Me puse este chal no porque hiciera fresco, sino para protegerme del sol, porque no me había puesto protección solar en los hombros, porque cuando salí de casa estaba nublado del todo. Al final del día tenía un poco de colorcito en los brazos pero conseguí evitar quemarme.

  1. Oh, wow, San Sebastian looks wonderful! Look at that beach! You and your mother-in-law looks just lovely in your loose summer dresses! I also prefer physical sunblock over that goop on my skin. A shawl is such a nice way to do that.

    Ha, I laughed at that "dress" in the second outfit - oh, H&M...that is clearly a tunic!

    As always, your colourful outfits make me smile. Wishing you a happy weekend!

  2. Your outing to the seaside looks totally fabulous, Monica, and so do you and Mr. A.'s Mum. Your maxi dress is gorgeous and how lucky you were you had that shawl with you. I experienced a similar thing on Sunday, when we went to a flea market. I'd slathered on sunblock, but it was still way too hot out in the sun, so I had to buy a scarf. I'm loving that gorgeous frilly top in your second outfit as well. Have a fabulous weekend, Monica! Besos xxx

  3. The blue of the sea! I'm not near water and am envious of your beautiful beaches.
    Wonderful outfits on both of you.

  4. 25 degrees celcius is my idea of a perfect beach day too. The intense blue of the water and sky are so beautiful. You are both wearing such pretty dresses!

  5. You and Mr A's Mum look absolutely wonderful. Is her dress made from an Indian sari?
    I'm very envious of your trip to the seaside, it looks stunning and the weather utterly perfect! x
