weekend & wide trousers

Once more, we've made the most of some warm days to go out for some excursions and visit some of our favourite spots. We don't get bored with visiting the nearby town of Laguardia (touristic info) which offers a wide variety of activities. The vineyards don't look as appealing as they do when green or reddish, but winter landscapes are what they are. The weather was so unseasonably warm that I only wore a denim jacket over a fine knit pullover. Both of them were second-hand recent purchases!.
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week and a slow fashion autumn!

Una vez más, hemos aprovechado unos días templados para salir de excursión y visitar algunos de nuestros lugares favoritos. No nos aburrimos de ir a visitar la cercana villa de Laguardia (info turística) que ofrece una interesante variedad de actividades. El tiempo estaba tan increíblemente bueno que sólo me puse esta chaqueta vaquera sobre un jersey de punto fino. ¡Ambos fueron compras de segunda mano muy recientes!
Enlazo al Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible y un otoño sostenible.

- tropical print trousers, sewed by me / pantalón de estampado tropical, costura casera
- fine knit pullover, second hand, sunday Street market (here) / jersey de punto fino, de segunda mano, del mercadillo del domingo (véase (aquí)
- denim jacket, second hand, Asos Marketplace boutique 'Bich' (not sponsored) / chaqueta vaquera, de segunda mano, de Asos Marketplace boutique 'Bich' (no patrocinado)
- necklace, charity market (old) / collar, de un mercadillo solidario

I've 'upgraded' these trousers that I bought some time ago (see them before). I removed their (annoying) lining and added a side panel to make them wider (and more interesting, in my opinion). They're quite sheer now, as they're made of a devoré velvet, but I think it's an improvement because the fabric shows better its floatiness now. Actually, they look like an exotic dancer's trousers, even if it is unnoticeable in these pics. I'm planning to wear them in another (and more interesting) ensemble as son as possible!
No more warm days, it was colder and I wore tights under my trousers and my shearling coat too!.

He estado 'arreglando' estos pantalones que compré hace algún tiempo, (podéis ver el 'antes' aquí),quitándoles el forro, que era molestísimo, y añadiéndoles piezas a los lados para hacerlos más anchos (y más interesantes, en mi opinión). Ahora quedan bastante transparentes, porque están hechos de un terciopelo devoré, pero creo que sigue siendo una mejora porque ahora el tejido se ve suelto y fluído. En realidad ahora parecen unos pantalones de bailarina exótica, aunque no se perciba en estas fotos. Creo que me los voy a poner otra vez en cuanto pueda, de un modo más interesante.
Los días templados se acabaron, hacía fresco y me puse medias bajo los pantalones y también el abrigo gordo!.

  1. Loving the trousers - both floral and with the side panel added. Fabulous! Love the tops with them and the denim jacket and that gorgeous shearling coat which looks so elegant. I haven't dyed any shoes for a very long time - you've made me think about doing it!

    Have a great week, Monica.

  2. So beautiful, the trousers and this place. I really love it & I think I need to venture to Spain soon, it's gorgeous :) x

  3. That's a cunning trick for widening the trousers - they look really fab.

    Laguardia looks like a pretty place. I've never been to north Spain, I should rectify that!

  4. Laguardia looks lovely, the pink enamel sign on the house behind you is gorgeous as are those cobbled streets and open spaces.
    How funny, I'm wearing a dress with sleeves I'd done a similar treatment to, your trousers are a brilliant remake and the fabric is perfect! xxx

  5. Oh to be able to be out and about with just a light jumper and jeans jacket! Those were the days! Laguardia looks lovely as does the view over those vinyards! Love how you widened those trousers, you have definitely made them more you in every way. The green jumper and pink scarf are just perfect with it. Your shearling coat was one of your best finds ever, wasn't it. Warm and fabulous, what's not to like? Besos xxx

  6. I am in love with your wonderful cuff and earrings in the first outfit - so solid and awesome!

    You would never know that those second trousers didn't come that way! You did a wonderful job on them.

    As always, awesome colours - I bet people smile when they see you!
