autumn & blues

Whatever the reason I've been wearing a lot of blue colour (turquoise, teal, ink blue, denim) last days. I've even worn my Cranes Dress twice in a row, and I am thinking on wearing more maxi dresses before the weather become rainy. I still don't wear tights and never wear nylons, (hate them, don't judge me), so I'm making the most of my last barelegged days of the season.

No sé por qué razón he estado poniéndome mucho color azul, ya sea turquesa, azul tinta, tejido vaquero, estos últimos días. Incluso me he puesto este vestido de grullas azules dos veces seguidas, y también estoy pensando que tengo que ponerme más vestidos largos antes de que el tiempo cambie y llueva. Todavía sigo sin ponerme medias y nunca llevo media fina (las odio, no me juzguéis), así que intento aprovechar al máximo estos últimos días de piernas al aire del año.

This is my new bag recently purchased in Portugal when in holidays. Cork bags are available here too, but not the beautiful designs they had in the shop where I bought this one!. I like to buy local and sustainable if possible.
It's a comfortable bag, perfect to carry my thermoflask when going to work, almost a tote bag. And it doubles as a cross body bag when folded. Really useful!

Este es el bolso que me compré hace poco en Portugal cuando estuve de vacaciones. Bolsos de corcho también los hay aquí, pero no estos diseños tan chulos que tenían en la tienda donde lo compré. Me gusta comprar local y sostenible si es posible.
Es muy cómodo, me sirve para llevar el termo cuando voy a trabajar, es como un bolso de compra. Pero también sirve como bolsito cruzado cuando lo doblas, muy útil.

I've been going for a walk every evening, as I like to be outdoors in this beautiful season and enjoy the colours and atmosphere. Even if I have to wear a mask, it's nice to be outside.

He estado saliendo a pasear cada tarde, me gusta estar al aire libre en esta estación tan hermosa que te envuelve en tantos colores. Aunque tenga que llevar mascarilla, está muy bien salir fuera.

Hope you're keeping yourselves and others safe and as fabulous as possible.

Espero que todos sigáis cuidando de vosotros mismos y de los demás y tan fabulosos como sea posible.

  1. You look so beautiful in blue! The crane dress is absolutely stunning. I've never seen a bag made from cork, but am now intrigued, and must go look online for one.
    I don't care for nylons either, but I still wear them because of old social conventions no one observes anymore ;)
    Habits are hard to break.
    Have a great week.

    1. Cork items are typically spanish and portuguese craftmanship, sometimes sold as souvenirs. And they're sustainable!
      I think that those old social conventions are one of the reasons I hate nylons so much ;DD
      Probably it's time to overcome all my f+ck*n traumas!

  2. Maybe wearing blue is a subconscious recognition that we will be seeing fewer blue skies, which we associate with summer? Or maybe you just love wearing that fabulous crane dress! It is one of my favourites. Love your multicolour outfit - the purple, blue and yellow combo is amazing.

    I wear nylons and tights almost constantly. I dislike bare legs, and I have loads of varicose veins and spider veins that I prefer to hide.

    1. Totally agree that blue (particularly turquoise) makes me think on summery skies and joyful sunny days!. Glad you like colours too!
      Dear Sheila, I also have loads of varicose veins, so visible than nylons can't hide them!. So I'm a huge fan of 80den tights! or maxi dresses!

  3. Blue is a color I love! .. I love how you mixed the pieces! Oh! Of course I love the crochet vest, openwork and long! .. But the bag is spectacular, I think it's really comfortable and versatile! Have a nice weekend!

    1. Glad that you like them!, so lovely to read your comments!
      Thank you!

  4. I always enjoy seeing you wearing that crane dress - one of my favourite pieces in your closet! I really like that cork bag - the colour is lovely, and the versatility of being able to convert it to a cross body bag is great.

    1. Thank you, Shelley, it's one of my favourites too!
      And I'm so happy with this cork bag that I regret not buying another one in orange which was available! ;D

  5. Your Cranes maxi looks absolutely fabulous with the blue turtleneck worn underneath. Such a great idea! I'm loving both the polka dot cardigan and the crochet (net) one, which are both perfect layering pieces for this amazing dress. And talking of amazing: that cork bag is a stunner. Thank you for showing us a close-up! I'm loving your trousers and top outfit too, that's awesome pattern mixing! I have to confess I love wearing nylons and tights. Much for the same reason as Sheila, I have to add. I'll go bare-legged in Summer of course, but I'm always breathing a sigh of relief when I can cover my legs again :-) Besos xxx

    1. I'm a huge fan of turtlenecks as a layering piece, they work!. And I'm glad you like the cork bag, I'm wearing it everyday!
      Mwhaha, I love tights, for the same reason as Sheila and you! (they hide a multitude of sins!). But never wear nylons, they don't hide my varicose veins and make me feel frumpy and sweaty in the summer. I'll go barelegged or will wear trousers until temperatures plummet!

  6. What a lovely turquoise and blue post, you're an absolute joy!
    I do love the stork print maxi, I've never seen a print quite like it. I love that cork bag, what a beautiufl thing it is and a wonderful reminder of your fantastic holiday in Portugal. xxx

    1. So glad you like turquoise and blue too!
      The print was the reason to buy this dress!, it didn't fit me and had to revamp it, but I was so in love with the blue birds!
      And I love to buy something locally made when in holidays, but not the typical souvenir!

  7. Hello lady in blue!

    Love the crane dress and your blue trouser outfits. Such lovely shades of blue and beautiful accessories as always. It's too chilly here to go without tights...

    Take care and stay safe

    1. Thank you, dear Veronica!, glad you like all these blue!
      It's too chilly here too to go barelegged, sigh!, I'm wearing socks and had to switch on the heating!

  8. Loving the blue here. The top from the dress is so innovative and cool. I love the cork bag.
