summer in spring

Another busy week on sight and the unseasonably hot weather have induced me to spend some time organising my wardrobe. Actually, it was necessary to switch seasons earlier than expected, as we're having 30ºC now and even higher temperatures next days. 'Heatwave Capsule' to the rescue!. Never dreamed to have such hot weather on May.
This is what I wore last days (lighter layers, sandals) as temperatures rise. And it's straw bags seasons!. I've changed my usual cork bags for straw bags to go to work: I carry a lot of stuff in them, including my thermo flask. I still keep some (small) cross body bags for excursions and shopping, but my straw bags are worn almost everyday, so you'll see them here frequently!. This makes my life easier, as I hate to switch bags.

Con la perspectiva de una semana de mucho trabajo y el calor tan poco primaveral que se avecina, he pasado un tiempo organizando el armario. En realidad, he tenido que hacer el cambio de estación antes de lo normal, porque ya tenemos 30ºC e incluso más calor los próximos días. Es el momento de sacar mis conjuntitos 'ola de calor'. Ni se me pasaba por la imaginación tener estas temperaturas en mayo.
Estos últimos días me he puesto ropa más ligera y sandalias, según subían las temperaturas. Y también ha llegado la época de sacar los bolsos de paja, que sustituyen a los de corcho: llevo siempre muchos trastos, incluyendo el termo, cuando voy al trabajo. Todavía tengo unos cuantos bolsitos cruzados para paseos o excursiones, pero son los bolsos grandes de paja los que llevo cada día, y los veréis a menudo!. Es un modo de hacerme la vida más fácil, me fastidia cambiar de bolso.

We have had workers at home removing the bathtube and installing a shower in our ensuite bathroom. I was completely fed up with that *#@ impractical bathtube. Actually, it has been less messy than expected, even if we had to do some cleaning up. Meanwhile, we've enjoyed our spare room/visitors room and 'courtesy' bathroom for some days, which felt like being visitors in our own home.

Hemos tenido obras en casa, quitando la bañera e instalando ducha en nuestro baño principal. Estaba totalmente frita de usar esa bañera de *#@. No ha sido tan latoso como esperaba, aunque sí que hemos tenido que hacer limpieza. Mientras tanto, hemos estado usando la habitación de las visitas y el otro baño durante unos días, que ha sido como estar de visita en nuestra propia casa.

This is the bathroom before the works.

And this is our new shower!. I think it looks really better (not to speak about accessibility) even if it's still lacking accessories and decoration.
Y esta es la ducha nueva, que creo que queda mucho mejor (y ya ni hablemos de la comodidad) incluso sin accesorios ni decoración.

Hope you're having a fabulous week!
Espero que la semana os esté yendo estupendamente.

  1. The shower is beautiful!
    Sorry about the early heatwave but you put together some beautiful outfits to deal with it. Enjoy your lovely new shower.

  2. We are having Summer in Spring as well, but thankfully nothing like your 30°C and more ... Keeping cool is the message, so I'm sure you'll be extra glad of your spectacular new shower! Those tiles are stunning.
    Gorgeous outfits, as always, and definitely a sight for sore eyes! I'm particularly loving the pattern mixing and pops of yellow in the second one. And yay: straw bag season! I guess I should take a leaf out of your book and use mine more! Besos xxx

  3. The new shower looks wonderful!

    I absolutely loved both your 'summer in spring' outfits. I saw the yellow and black outfit on IG but the blue outfit was also fabulous. Each piece went so beautifully with each other like a painting and you looked fabulous. I love straw bags, too; they always look so cool. Luckily, I no longer need to carry a large bag to work anymore!

  4. I am not a fan of baths so I would be much happier with that beautiful shower! We have had several hot days here to, followed by rain, and it's supposed to be hot again this weekend. Definitely too early for this!

  5. sandals and strawbags - it´s definitely summer in spain!
    (actually it is hot here too - but nights and mornings are still sprin-like fresh). love the blue batik look and the brooch vronni gave you is a real stunner.
    you even got new chic tiles! i´m a fan of this retro-tiles..... but a fan of a long hot soak too - so if we ever renovating our bathroom it will get a pretty bathtub that can double as a shower basin. and retro tiles of cause :-D

  6. I love sandals and straw bag weather! I've had a week of it in Greece and I'm determined to do the same here even if I have blue toes!
    I love both your outfits and I'm madly in love with the tiles in your bathroom, I'd have chosen exactly the same! xxx

  7. I LOVE your black, white and yellow outfit! So very much - it looks fabulous. Your straw bag collection is impressive!

    Wow, what a fantastic bathroom makeover! I love love LOVE the tiles in the shower. And so much more storage for you under the sink. You're lucky to have a courtesy bathroom - our condo only has one.
