black skirts & summer

Last week we had some relief days when temperatures were summery but bearable (it was even cooler in the mornings 12-15ºC, 55ºF). So I was feeling more upbeat and went for some walks!. It's nice to be outside!. It was also nice to wear my new red t-shirt for the first time (a present I indulged myself for my birthday, made by a local designer). In case of doubt, wear Red!.
I took some photos by myself in the garage alley (glamour!)

La semana pasada tuvimos unos días de alivio del calor, con temperatura de verano pero llevadera (incluso algo más fresca por la mañana, sobre los 12-15ºC). Así que me sentía más animada y salí a caminar varios días. Sienta bien salir un rato fuera. También sienta bien estrenar, como hice con esta camiseta roja que me autoregalé por mi cumpleaños (es de esta diseñadora local). Ya sabéis, en caso de duda, vístete de Rojo!.
Me tomé unas fotos con el temporizador, en el habitual callejón de garaje (todo glamour).

- massive flower skirt, second hand, Sunday street market (last summer) / falda de la flor enorme, de segunda mano, del mercadillo del domingo (verano pasado)
- sandals, Chiruca outlet (old) / sandalias
- black cardi, La Redoute (old) / chaqueta negra
- straw bag, retail (old) / bolso de paja, tienda local

I wore another simple outfit next day, just a skirt and a t-shirt, but added some matchy accessories to make it more interesting!. Purple galore!. This vintage cotton skirt (80's?) was a present by Sacramento and it has a lovely wrinkled texture and some fav colors. Have to wear it more frequently and try different colors too!

De nuevo algo sencillo que llevé al día siguiente, una falda y una camiseta, pero le añadí accesorios conjuntadísimos para hacerlo un poco más interesante. Bien de púrpura. La falda de algodón es vintage (de los 80?) y fue un regalo de Sacramento, tiene una textura arrugada y unos colores que me encantan. Tengo que sacarle más partido, con diferentes colores.

Hope you're safe and as fabulous as possible!
Espero que sigáis cuidándoos y tan estupendos como sea posible.

  1. Belated happy birthday! You look fab in your new T-shirt. We're now having a heatwave; it's like being in Spain.

  2. We're having a heatwave right with temperatures in the mid to high thirties, so I'm a little bit envious of your cooler mornings! I'll never get bored of your massive flower skirt, and I love how you combined it with your new red t-shirt. Would you believe I have the same mask? The turquoise one is gorgeous too! Sacramento's skirt is a delight and the purple t-shirt and multi-coloured necklace are perfect with it. I do remember those wrinkled skirts! I think you'd be able to combine it with many different colours as well. Hope you're having a relaxing and not too warm weekend :-) Besos xxx

  3. I'm glad things are a bit more comfortable for you and you're managing to get out and about a bit more before it heats up.
    I absolutely love your birthday tee shirt, such a fab print, it's perfect with the massive flower skirt. Your 1980s skirt is fabulous, you van't beat turquoise and purple together. xxx

  4. Belated Happy Birthday, my dear! I heartily approve of your rock and roll tee - it looks wonderful on you, and goes so well with my favourite skirt of yours. I love all the purple and turquoise in your second outfit, especially that amazing 80s skirt! Wow!

  5. Good to hear you are getting a break from the heat - we are too. I really like your Birthday t-shirt, and it is true that when in doubt, wear red!
