Winter Week

As part of my good mood routine, I keep on dressing up everyday. It totally makes a difference. I don't always feel like dressing up in the mornings (sometimes it feels like an epic feat) so I have some 'emergency outfits' ready to go. They usually involve a favourite piece, sometimes in a new ensemble, and lots of colour. It's also important for me to be comfortable, so no pinching, no inconvenient shoes, nor freezing myself in a lightweight coat in a winter morning.
These are my 'emergency outfits' of the week, and such a busy week it has been. Lots of work at the office, then some walking and also some sewing. Not complaining, as those are relaxing and refreshing activities. I've started a new sewing project, 'deconstructing' a second hand shirt to create something different, a patchwork/mending work. Whatever it results, it is really entertaining (learning by doing!). Totally a Jack of All Trades myself, particularly the part of Master of None. ;DD

Sigo con mi rutina de arreglarme y vestirme cada día para mantener una buena actitud, y creo que es algo que marca la diferencia. No siempre estoy de humor para vestirme por las mañanas (a veces me parece una labor titánica) así que tengo unos conjuntos de emergencia listos para usarse. Suelen incluir alguna prenda favorita, a veces en una combinación novedosa, y montones de color. También es muy importante para mí la comodidad, así que nada de ropa que estrangula, nada de zapatos que hagan daño, y nada de congelarse en un abriguito fino en una mañana de invierno.
Estos son mis modelitos de emergencia de esta semana, y ha sido una semana ocupadísima. Mucho trabajo en la oficina, y luego caminar y también coser. No me quejo, porque estas son cosas que hago para relajarme y refrescarme. He empezado un proyecto de costura, deconstruyendo una camisa de segunda mano para hacer algo diferente, una especie de patchwork remendado. Salga como salga, me ha entretenido mucho y he aprendido haciéndolo. Totalmente aprendiza de todo, sobre todo en la parte de maestra de nada ;D

- coat, retail (labe Sophiacurvy) / abrigo, tienda local, marca Sophiacurvy
- wool skirt, vintage (Sunday street market) / falda de lana, vintage del mercadillo del domingo
-striped t-shirt, CandA (old) / camiseta de rayas
- red jacket, second hand, Sunday street market / chaqueta roja, de segunda mano, mercadillo del domingo
- tights, Snag / medias
- sneakers, Adidas outlet (old) / zapatillas
- bag, Emily The Strange (ages ago) / bolso, de hace siglos
- brooches, made by me (epoxy resin) / broches hechos por mí (resina epoxi)
I'm not particularly happy with the proportions here, there are too many different lenghts, which makes me look shorter. But I like the colours and the 80's vibe.

No me entusiasman las proporciones aquí, hay demasiados largos diferentes, y eso siempre recorta la figura. Pero me gustan los colores y el estilo ochentero.

- jacket, Nonapapallona (old) / chaqueta de Nonapapallona (antigua)
- shirt, second hand, Sunday street market / camisa, de segunda mano del mercadillo del domingo
- skirt and tights, Snag / falda y medias
- boots, Treksta (old) / botas
- crochet scarf / bufanda de ganchillo
- necklace, retail (old) / collar, de una tienda local

Have a fab week!

Espero que tengáis una semana estupenda.

  1. Hurray for emergency outfits in times of crisis! I love my three-days weekends in which I've got the time to play with my wardrobe, but I definitely need a batch of "here's one I prepared earlier" ones for working days.
    I'm pleased to see that your cute little skirt has made it into your favourites, and I'm loving the outfit you created with it. That's my favourite, but in spite of your reservations, I am loving the other one as well. Have a fab week too, Monica! Besos xxx

  2. I like the idea of emergency outfits! That new-to-you blue skirt looks absolutely wonderful with the red blazer and magical spotty coat and I love the shape of that purple kimono-like topper! xxx

  3. Lovely outfits! The first one in the red and blue was beautifully co-ordinated and what a fabulous scarf that tied it all together. The idea of an 'emergency outfit' is a brilliant idea. There are the occasional times when I can't decide what to wear and having an emergency outfit would be a saviour!

    I'm looking forward to seeing your latest sewing project.

  4. I love your red and blue outfit - we used to call those "car wash" skirts, as the flaps on the hem are like the strips that drag over a car in car washes. :)

    I like the proportions of the pink and purple outfit - your legs look a mile long!

    Emergency outfits are a great idea. My emergency looks are always dresses!

  5. This red and blue combination is fantastic. I love how you wore it with sneakers.
