This is what I wore on Friday morning to go to my doctor for a last check up before going to work (I sprained my ankle last week). I can walk and do my business as usual, but I've been recommended not to do extreme hiking nor wear heels for some weeks, something really appropriate as I never wear heels and have never felt any urge to climb mountains. I've taken it with some humour and actually I feel relieved that it has been a slight sprain.

Esto es lo que me puse para ir el viernes a una revisión médica de mi tobillo (me torcí el tobillo la semana pasada). Ya puedo andar y hacer mi vida normal, pero me han recomendado que ni haga montañismo ni lleve tacones en las próximas semanas, algo muy apropiado ya que ni llevo nunca tacones ni he sentido nunca la urgencia de subirme a los montes. De todos modos es un alivio poderlo tomar con humor y que sea sólo un esguince leve.

- pullover, old and revamped some time ago (it was shortened and dyed in purple) / jersey de punto, antiguo y reformado hace tiempo (lo acorté y lo teñí de morado)
- trousers, made of a second hand jumpsuit / pantalón, hecho de un mono-enterizo de segunda mano
- new shoes/sneakers, Chiruca outlet / nuevas zapatillas deportivas
- coat, La Redoute (old) / abrigo
- crochet beret / boina de ganchillo
- glass beads, inherited from grandma / collares de cuentas de vidrio, heredados de la abuela
- another necklace, Sfera (old) / otro collar, Sfera (antigüito)
- scarf, retail (old) / bufanda, antigüita
- bag, Nonapapallona (old) / bolso, Nonapapallona

This is how I've looked most of the time last week, not very glamourous but totally my Real Life. You can have another look at my bedroom here and home decoration on April2019.

Éste ha sido mi aspecto durante la mayor parte del tiempo la semana pasada, no es muy glamuroso, pero esto es también la Vida Real. Podéis echarle otro vistazo a mi dormitorio aquí y a la decoración de mi casa en April2019.

And I had never published pics of our guests room, which I have used recently as a background. I painted it in purple, also painted the bedside tables (see here) and sewed the curtains and cushions, so everything was made on a budget. Below are some pictures I sent to a friend who was coming to visit us, to tell him that his room was ready!.

Nunca había publicado fotos de la habitación de invitados, que es la que he usado recientemente como fondo. Está pintada en morado, y también pinté yo misma las mesitas de noche e hice los cojines y cortinas, así que es todo bastante sencillo y económico. Estas fotos las saqué para enviarlas a un amigo que venía de visita, para decirle que su cuarto estaba listo.

Have a nice weekend!

  1. I love your guestroom! What a fabulous colour that wall is. Not sure if it's a cobalt blue of a deep purple but it looks wonderful and the bedside cupboards and cushion are fabulous.

    Glad to hear your ankle is improving and that you no longer have to lounge around on your bed reading books...!!

    Fab outfit and accessories. Hope you have a fab week ahead.

  2. Glad to hear you got your doctor's go ahead and that your ankle is improving. Lounging around reading books does have its limits, doesn't it? I was admiring your jumper and then I read you revamped it by dying it. That's just awesome, Monica. Your guestroom looks very inviting. What a wonderful shade of purple, and those chartreuse bedside tables provide a wonderful contrast! Besos xxx

  3. Good to hear you got the all clear from the doctors, I hope you continue to heal ok. Love the guestroom, so beautiful xx

  4. I'm glad you haven't lost your sense of humour!

    The purple walls in your guest bedroom are gorgeous. Purple and green are so fresh.

    Hope your ankle is feeling better : )


  5. I hope your ankle is getting better; ankle injuries can be nasty.

    Purple and green look so good together, like flowers!

  6. Wow, that is a fabulous guest room. I love that deep purple colour - it looks very restful and calm. I am also loving your colour therapy of all those blues and purples in your outfit, Monica! Those trousers are so swooshy-looking! I hope your ankle sprain gets better - I just got a light wrist sprain last week, when I slipped in the snow.

  7. I am glad that you are on the mend! You look absolutely adorable in your colorful homey outfit, what a great photo! Love your home decor! <3 <3 <3

  8. Glad it wasn't a serious sprain! Hope you will be up and around and feeling good as new soon. You incorporate purple into your outfits better than anyone I know. I like the colour of your guest room.
