massive flower & winter

My massive flower skirt was another of the second hand purchases made in the summer that I decided to keep in my wardrobe for a while (instead of storing them until next spring). Having all these summery pieces to be layered and worn in the cold days means that my style keeps a colorful vibe all year long, and some coherence through the seasons. I think that it's really important to feel comfortable in your own style and express yourself whatever the season!.
I wore similar outfits on Monday and Tuesday and even wore same coat, which was pretty comfortable and kept me cosy and in a good mood. It was just what I needed to cheer up the beginning of my week, as weather was gloomy and everybody looked a little bit sad because of having to work when it's still dark. Bringing my own sunshine in the form of a massive flower made me feel (almost) impervious to dull days ('clothing as armour' as Sheila says).
Linking (and doing) I Will Wear What I Like.
I'm enjoying the first of two bank holidays we have, Friday And Monday, which makes a long weekend!.
See you on the other side.

Esta falda de la flor enorme es otra más de mis adquisiciones de segunda mano de este verano, y también he decidido dejarla en el armario en vez de guardarla hasta la primavera. Tener unas cuantas prendas veraniegas que puedes llevar en superposiciones durante los días de más frío significa que mi estilo mantiene su colorido todo el año y así se mantiene también cierta coherencia a través de los cambios de estación. Creo que es importante sentirse cómodo en tu propio estilo haga el tiempo que haga, y seguir siendo uno mismo.
Esto es lo que me puse el lunes y el martes, todo muy similar, incluso el mismo abrigo, que es muy cómodo y me mantuvo calentita y de buen rollo. Justo lo que necesitaba para empezar la semana, porque el tiempo estaba nublado y todo el mundo parecía triste por tener que trabajar cuando todavía es de noche. Mi flor enorme es como mi propio sol portátil y anima muchísimo a sentirse en otra onda y pasar mucho de las tristuras (como hace Sheila que mola muchísimo).

  1. Who wouldn't be cheered up seeing you in that lovely skirt and all your colourful accessories and jewellery! I loved your bangle in the very last photo; fabulous colours!

    The dark mornings and early dark evenings can be very depressing but dressing in bright colours certainly helps to lift one's mood.

    Have a fab weekend.

  2. Clothing as armour indeed! Well said, Sheila!
    I love that skirt, it's so cheerful and bright. The perfect antidote for these gloomy short days. xxx

  3. I'm absolutely seconding Sheila in that clothing can be the perfect armour. And I'm so glad you kept out that fabulous massive flower skirt, so that we can get to enjoy it in the winter months as well. I think it's perfect for any season! I think it looks particularly effective with the blue turtleneck and mustard short-sleeved cardigan. I'm also admiring the jewellery you used to further enhance both outfits. I'm swooning over that bracelet! Hope you're having a lovely weekend! Besos xxx

  4. Oh, it is wonderful that your outfits improved your mood that much! I love them both and I find it wonderful you wear such vibrant colours and patterns also in winter!

  5. Florals are always top with me, I love it, I also love the colours here too, so beautiful :)))) besos x

  6. Oh, aren't you sweet - thank you so much for the shout-out! Yes, hooray for "clothing as armour", especially in the form of that bigass flower! I am in love with that prismatic bangle - it must go with everything! I would love to have all of my clothes out all year 'round, but I don't have a big enough closet. :-O
