Spring Colours

Some days ago the weather looked promising, springtime was a bloom of sunny days. I even wore my sandals for the first time. But the weather was cheating us once more, as last week we had snow storms on the mountains which brought us a distinctive chilly breeze. So we had to revert to coats and knits. Totally normal spring weather.

Hace bien poco el clima estaba de lo más prometedor, parecía que llegaba la primavera con unos días soleados buenísimos. Incluso me puse sandalias por primera vez en el año. Pero de nuevo el tiempo nos engaña, y la semana pasada tuvimos nevadas en las montañas que nos trajeron ese vientecillo fresco tan característico. Así que tuvimos que volver a los abrigos y el punto. Un tiempo de lo más primaveral, normal.

  1. Spring weather is impossible, isn't it? Just when you think you can pack the tights away back comes the frost!
    Three fabulous moutfits, love the NEW! trousers. Black and red is classic Monica and the massive flower skirt is always a joy to see! Stay warm! xxx

  2. April has been particularly fickle this year, I think, and I'm glad I hadn't packed away all my Winter clothes yet. Also, it's often barely above freezing point in the morning, and then it warms up to 20°C during the day. We need all our layering skills to get dressed in the mornings!
    Loving all three of your classic colourful Monica outfits. The new trousers are such a gorgeous colour, and a wise investment, I'm sure, and seeing your massive flower skirt is always a sight for sore eyes! xxx

  3. Our weather is up and down too. Loved all your outfits and your new trousers are fab. Such a good colour! At the moment I can't imagine wearing sandals again as I only wear them when the weather is really hot....

  4. I love the colours in these 3 outfits so much! The first look is my favourite. Those trousers are such a perfect match with that top. The maxi styling is beautiful too and the third outfit looks very cozy. Spring has been on the cold side so far.

  5. First sandals of the season! Our weather has been strange too. Loved your outfits.

  6. April has been a combination of Winter/Spring with rain, snow, freezing temperatures and warmer days. I'm hoping that May settles down and getting dressed in the morning has been a challenge. So nice to see your bright colours and patterns.

  7. I so appreciate all the comments, by the way, Monica - thank you! I love all these bright outfits - while these feel more like "you" than the two later posts' looks (the woven shirt and the jeans), I really do love that you're continuously exploring your style and pushing yourself to try new things.

    Ah, spring - we do nothing but complain about it!
