think pink & mini

I've been wearing some really short miniskirts and dresses, as I usually do in the winter when tights are my everyday option. I've even worn these tunics as minidresses, even if I wore them only over leggings in the past. Totally age unappropriate, I can proudly state. But I have a new pair of striped tights to show and it's no time to be wimpy.
If you don't feel comfident enough to show your legs, darker colours, darker tights and a long coat can cover a multitude of sins. I'm not in the mood for dark colours, but I like a long coat, cardigan or waistcoat over a minidress and totally recommend this kind of layering (which adds covering and comfort). I usually wear some pettipants which look totally like shorts, so I don't care too much when I sit or bend. Because comfort is first!.


Me he estado poniendo algunas minifaldas y minivestidos, tal como suelo hacer en invierno cuando las medias gruesas son mi uniforme diario. Incluso me he puesto estas túnicas como minivestidos, aunque anteriormente sólo me las había puesto con leggings. Totalmente inapropiado para mi edad, puedo afirmar (si a alguien todavía le importan esas cosas). Pero estaba estrenando medias de rayas, así que nada de hacerse la discretita.
Si no os sentís cómodas enseñando pierna, siempre se puede elegir colores más oscuros, medias más oscuras y un abrigo largo para cubrirlo todo. Yo no estoy de humor para tanta oscuridad, pero sí que me gusta el efecto de un abrigo, chaqueta o chaleco sobre un vestido más corto, es una superposición que funciona y hace la vida más cómoda. Y también llevo unas enaguas debajo, que parecen unos shorts, así que no me preocupo demasiado cuando me siento o me agacho. Poque la comodidad es lo primero.

I tried these shoes (by Tuk) at home, just for fun. I always wear my sneakers for my real life (and walks) but still keep some shoes that I only can wear for a short walk.

I took a selfie not only to show you my accessories, but also to feel that somebody see my face outside Mr.A. and myself.

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

Espero que sigáis todo lo estupendamente que sea posible.

    1. Thank you for your compliment, opaques are fab and make me feel comfident.
      Glad you like this necklace, is a favourite of mine!. As we have to wear a mask when outdoors, nobody has seen my face for months, which is becoming so strange.

  3. Both your legs and those fun striped tights - which are very you, by the way - deserve to be shown off, so what better way than to wear mini dresses! I love both your outfits! The first one, with all the pink, provides a welcome splash of colour on a Winter's day. But your second outfit, with its monochromes and pops of red, is my favourite. Age appropriate? No such thing! You just wear what makes you feel good! Lovely to see your face, by the way! Besos xxx

  4. Oh, screw anyone who thinks it's inappropriate for us to wear minis! You look amazing in this, and I LOVE those striped tights so much! Both of your outfits are delightful, but I think the black and white one wins for me. Your head shot is excellent, I can see your beautiful face.

    1. Glad that you like these striped tights, I've been in search of them for ages!. I'm happy with them now as they're more versatile tan expected.
      All we are missing to see human faces in public, as we have to wear a mask when outdoors, and it's feeling more and more strange. Taking a selfie is my way to fight this feeling!

  5. You are looking very pretty in pink and I love the mini-dress with tights and cardigan. I'm also loving your black and white ensemble with the red accents and that fabulous coral necklace. The Mary Janes by Tuk are gorgeous! I'm always happy to see your lovely face and say hello to Mr A for me.

  6. I have always preferred shorter skirts in the winter layered over warm tights or leggings. I keep my longer skirts for the summer as I have a lot of spider veins on my ankles that show up very well against my white skin! Love the black and white outfit accessorized with red - definitely one of my favourite combinations; stripes and polka dots for the win!

    1. Most of us, matured ladies, have to deal with those spider veins or varicose veins in my case. So I'm glad there are some fab opaques nowadays!. Sometimes my ugly veins are visible when it's damn hot in the summer and I wear my most comfy clothes, but I think that confort is first.
      I knew you like some black&white graphic prints and monochromatic ensembles, Great Minds!
