Winter Week

Last week was quite busy, but I was determined to keep on blogging, despite my erratic posting!. I've recapped my week in five outfits, which I wore Monday to Friday.
La semana pasada estuve bastante ocupada, pero he seguido decidida a mantener el blog, a pesar de que publico cuando buenamente puedo. He resumido la semana en cinco fotos de lo que llevé, de lunes a viernes.

(Unrequired explanation)
I've been in denial for days, then anxious, and finally determined to keep myself focused on friendship, art, creativity, colour and joy. Don't know if this is frivolous (even if I believe that frivolity is totally necessary) but it's my own way to carry on. We have enough tedious experts who just drive us to fatalism. So I'll keep it lighthearted, thanks.

Hope you're keeping yourselves (and others) safe.

Espero que todos sigáis bien, cuidáos mucho.

  1. your fabulous colourful outfits are exactly what the doctor ordered!
    i too try to focus on the positive things - knowing that having angst will not change the situation one yota - but would steal precious lifetime and energy......

  2. These are very anxious times, and it sometimes feels easier to just pretend none of it is happening, but I think it is better to acknowledge what is happening in the world, but practice self-care which can include art, colour and friendship. I am trying to do this too. I am getting my mammogram this week so fingers crossed for both of us that we are healthy.

  3. Well done on being determined to keep on blogging in spite of hectic and anxious times. I am doing the same - as I have been doing throughout the pandemic - as my blog is my happy place, where in spite of not being the most positive person on earth I'm trying to focus on the positive things. As Beate says, we cannot change the situation by giving in to our anxiety, we can only try and offer support where we can.
    I'm loving all your colourful outfits which definitely make the world a better place. Besos xxx

  4. It's lovely to see the blossom everywhere - Spring has sprung!

    Such lovely colourful outfits and I just adore the beaded sequinned cardigan; absolutely gorgeous. And of the course the faux coral necklace was wonderful with it.

    Yes, all we can do is keep on keeping on....

  5. Your vivid outfits fill me with cheer. It is hard to keep being positive with all the crap going on in the world. I've also been focusing on my art (my Badass Bag is nearly done).
