think pink

We had a respite from heatwaves last week, which meant more outdoors activities and also meant that some (light) layering was welcomed!. I even wore a jacket!. I was looking forward to wear this jacket and (two-sided) skirt together, but I was in doubt about which kind of top could match. Finally I picked something unmatched, because it looked more interesting (in my opinion). Striped t-shirts go with anything!
And I had to wear my massive bird brooch (one of the most luxurious accessories I own!) and these glass beads which were once owned by my grandma, so they're properly granny style (and great quality beads too!).
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week and a #SlowFashionSeason

La semana pasada tuvimos un respiro de tanta ola de calor, lo que ha ha significado más actividades en el exterior e incluso poder ponerse alguna chaqueta, que ha sido muy agradable. Estaba deseando ponerme esta chaqueta con esta falda (reversible), pero tenía dudas sobre qué clase de top podría combinar. Al final elegí un top que no combina nada, porque me pareció más interesante (es mi opinión). Las camisetas de rayas van con todo!
Y tenía que ponerme también este broche en forma de pájaro, que es uno de mis accesorios más lujosos, y también estos collares de vidrio que fueron de mi abuela, así que son totalmente 'estilo abuela' y además son de vidrio de verdad, calidad!
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible y un verano libre de ropa de usar y tirar #SlowFashionSeason

  1. Your blazer is gorgeous, I really love that on you, beautiful colour!! Am glad there was a break in the hot weather for you. We have a little rain just now which is a relief from the muggy weather we had previously!! Have a wonderful week. Besos.

  2. Ohhh I am in love with your skirt. You look fabulous:) I am happy the heatwave is gone!

  3. Oooh, I love your layers! It's good to hear the heatwave has broken too.

  4. I'm glad you had a break from your heat.

    I LOVE that midi skirt and how you styled it.


  5. Isn't it wonderful to have a break from the heat? Your first outfit is utterly fabulous, Monica, and I think the striped top is just perfect with it. That skirt is absolutely gorgeous, and so is that divine bird brooch. Love those patchwork shoes too! Besos xxx

  6. That first outfit is awesome, I love how you paired everything together! And a respite from the heat is great! I traveled to the midwest and was surprised it felt less hot there: a lot less humidity and some degrees cooler.

  7. The print on your skirt is amazing, it works brilliantly with the stripes and that pretty dusky pink blazer and bastard massive brooch.
    Love the tunic in the second outfit, it looks rather Anokhi-like, always a great thing in my book.
    I bet you're enjoying a respite in the temperatures - it's been warm here the last few days, typically it looks set to break just as we leave for our next festival tomorrow! xxx

  8. I love that first skirt - what a gorgeous print! The striped top is wonderful with it - so much better than matchy in this case. Great blazer and it shows off your glass bird brooch so well! It goes perfectly with the skirt.

    The colour of the top in the second outfit, combined with the blue trousers, reminds me of a bowl of summer berries - just perfect for this time of year!

    Hope you are having a good week - glad to hear that the temps are back to normal!
