trousers & stripes

Switching between seasons can be puzzling and it's actually making me feel uninspired and perplexed (more perplexed than usual, I should say). So I've picked some trusty trousers, as I still baulk at the idea of wearing tights, and kept it comfy and colorful.
Linking Visible Monday, wearing lots of stripes, and wishing you a visible week and a slow fashion autumn!

El cambio de temporada puede dejarte un tanto desconcertada y hacerte sentir poco inspirada y confundida (más de lo habitual, en mi caso). Así que he estado recurriendo a algunas prendas 'de confianza', casi todo pantalones porque todavía estoy resistiéndome a ponerme medias, y sobre todo buscando estar cómoda sin perder ese colorido.
Enlazo al Visible Monday, que también va de rayas, y os deseo una semana muy visible, y un otoño libre de ropa de usar y tirar.

I was looking forward to wear my recently sewed top, which I made of a second hand dress. The dress itself was only appealing because of its quality viscose fabric and colorful print, and it wasn't even my size. But I bought it anyway (2€), dismantled it and sew a simple peasant-blouse pattern. My secret is that one of its sleeves is made of leftovers from another sewing project (this top). So it's another 'Frankenstein-ized' cloth!.
I wore it layered over a striped shirt in the morning, but removed layers in the warmer afternoon. A massive tote bag is a great idea when you have to carry all the clothes you have to remove/layer through the day!

Estaba deseando estrenar esta blusa que me hice de un vestido de segunda mano. El vestido en sí sólo era interesante por la tela, que es una viscosa de calidad con un estampado muy colorido. Por lo demás, ni siquiera era mi talla. Pero lo compré de todos modos (por 2€), lo desmantelé y luego utilicé un patrón de blusa campesina, que es muy sencillo. Mi secreto es que una de las mangas está hecha con tela sobrante de otro proyecto (esta camiseta). Así que es otro 'vestido frankenstein', sólo que es una blusa.
Tuve que añadirle una capa por debajo por la mañana, y elegí una camisa de rayas, que luego me quité al mediodía en cuanto subió la temperatura. Es buena idea llevar un bolso enorme en estas fechas, así puedes meter ahí toda la ropa que te quitas y te pones. ¡Es como llevar una maleta!

- long cardi, La Redoute (old) / chaqueta punto larga

- trousers, clearance sale/outlet (old) / pantalón, de una liquidación/outlet
- sneakers, Adidas outlet (old) / zapatillas
- jacket, C&A (old) / chaqueta

  1. So much colour and print matching inspiration here! Your deconstructed top is fantastic and I love the mix of stripes and florals, they look so fresh and interesting.
    No tights here yet either! Our local postman have a challenge to see which one of them will pack the shorts away first and resort to trousers, I think I'm going to challenge myself to do the same with tights! xxx

  2. Uninspired? That's not what I'm seeing, as both your outfits are fabulous and fun. So many patterns and textures going on and still looking as if it was meant to be worn together. You are a true magician! As for that blouse you made out of the € 2 dress, it is an absolute triumph, and if you hadn't pointed it out, I'd never have guessed that one of the sleeves was made from the remnants of another sewing project.

  3. You look fabulous! If that's you being uninspired I'll take it : ) I think you're coping with the change of weather beautifully.


  4. Love all your colours and pattern clashing, Monica you look wonderful in all of the outfits. I especially love the horizontal striped trousers; they're quite rare to find I've noticed. Your new top is beautiful' I love the pattern and the re furbished sleeves:)


  5. Oh, all these colours and patterns, they just make my heart sing! You are amazing at recreating something out of an old garment - well done! Love the stripes with these brights! You're like a breath of summer!

  6. All of these colours are amazing, love the stripy trousers, so cool!! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far, besos x
