Spring & Pink

The weather keeps being typically unpredictable and we have had the infamous switch to Daylight Saving Time. Not my cup of tea. Not a huge fan of spring, but I'm keeping my mood, wearing vibrant colours and planning to take a short holiday from work and computers!. So I have to think seriously about luggage and packing and stuff, and I'm really out of practice. So it's going to be an entertaining challenge.

El tiempo sigue impredecible, típico para esta época del año, y nos han cambiado al horario de verano, que no me gusta nada. No soy una entusiasta de la primavera, pero yo sigo a lo mío, llevando colores que animen, y además planeando tomarme unas vacaciones del trabajo y los ordenadores. Así que tengo que pensar en las maletas, estoy muy desentrenada de hacer equipajes. Me lo tomaré como un reto entretenido.
- skirt, La Redoute (bought it fifteen years ago, see it previously: april2013) / falda, La Redoute, comprada hace quince años, podéis verla en abril2013
- blouse, retail, label Nymphaea Alba (many years old) / blusa, tienda local, marca Nymphaea Alba (de hace muchos años
- tights, Snag / medias
- rain coat, Seasalt / abrigo impermeable
- sneakers, adidas outlet, old / zapatillas
- cork bag, Fine Cork Portugal / bolso de corcho
- scarf, street market (old) / pañuelo, de un mercadillo
- pink brocade jacket, a present by Sacramento years ago! / chaqueta de brocado rosa, regalo de Sacramento, hace años ya!

- wide legged trousers, made them of a second hand jumpsuit by HM acquired at usual street market/ pantalón, hecho de un mono enterizo del Hm que compré de segunda mano en el mercadillo
- green pullover and gauze shirt, both second hand, street market (old) / jersey verde y camisa de gasa, de segunda mano, del mercadillo
- sneakers, Adidas outlet (old) / zapatillas
I made this kind of a breadandbutter pudding, but skipped the butter (I'm lactose intolerant). Instead of butter, I added a layer of (goat milk) cottage cheese and sliced apples. Also added apples as a topper. Totally followed the recipe (irony!). It's the first time I make a bread pudding, as rarely are there bread leftovers at home. But we had visitors at home and I bought too much bread. Glad I could manage to make something tasty for breakfast.

Hice este especie de budín de pan y mantequilla, pero sin la mantequilla (tengo intolerancia a la lactosa). En vez de mantequilla, le puse una capita de queso fresco de cabra y manzana fileteada, que también le añadí por encima. Siguiendo la receta al pie de la letra (ironía!). No hago nunca estas cosas porque tampoco suelo tener sobras de pan. Pero tuvimos visitas en casa y compré un montón de pan, pero me alegra que al final se pudiese aprovechar.

- striped trousers, clearance sale (old) / pantalón de rayas, liquidación
- orange blouse, second hand (street market), shortened and fitted by me (previously worn Nov2021) / blusa naranja, de segunda mano del mercadillo, acortada y ajustada (anteriormente en Nov2021)
- sneakers, Reebok outlet / zapatillas
- coat, retail, label Sophiacurvy / abrigo, tienda local

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

Por favor, cuidáos mucho y seguid todo lo estupendas que podáis.

  1. You look lovely in pink! Love the green coloured top worn with the pink skirt especially. I'm looking for more pink items for my wardrobe as it's a colour I have little of. The bread and butter pudding looked delicious.

    Hope you have a great week,

  2. There's that fantastic blouse you shortened, I love it with your trademark spotty coat and the striped trousers. The pink outfit is gorgeous and shouts Spring and the green and blue look fantastic together, a friend told me that it's a "trend" to wer both together!
    That modified bread and butter pudding looks gorgeous. I've made one with marmalade and sliced oranges which was very tasty.
    Enjoy your packing, it can be a challenge, can't it? xxx

  3. The bread pudding looks tasty, but as I am gluten-intolerant, I wouldn't be able to eat it. I don't know how well something like that would work with gluten-free bread.
    Pink and green is a perfect Spring colour combination.

  4. Daylight Saving Time is not my cup of tea either, and it always leaves me wondering how daylight can be saved by pinching off an hour in the morning, only to add it again in the evening! My mind boggles! I didn't have much trouble with the "lost hour" this time, as I had the whole week off afterwards. And I am definitely out of practice with packing too!
    Gorgeous and colourful outfits as always, Monica! I particularly love the first one this time, and your "old" La Redoute skirt is absolutely gorgeous!
    Love bread & butter pudding, haven't made it in the longest time! Besos xxx

  5. Mmm, that bread pudding looks fantastic! Awesome outfits - that top one is so cool.
