Summer & Blues

Even if the meteorological summer begins on 1 June, I've always considered that Summer doesn't start properly until Midsummer with the bonfires of Saint John. However, we're having such unseasonably high temperatures that I'm changing my mind. Summer is here to stay, apparently.
Since I switched my wardrobe to Real Summer, I've realized that I own too many clothes, and that some of them are not my thing anymore. So it's time for a massive declutter. Actually, I think it can be even relaxing to let things go, instead of being stressed by an overwhelming amount of clothes. And I'm not only trying to keep my wardrobe in a manageable size but I'm also trying to improve it!. So I'll be focused on shopping only quality pieces that I really love (which is a real challenge!).


Aunque el verano meteorológico empiece el 1 de junio, siempre he considerado que el verano no empieza hasta las hogueras de San Juan, el solsticio. Pero como estamos teniendo estos calores tan desacostumbrados para la época, voy a tener que cambiar de idea. El verano está aquí para quedarse, según parece.
Desde que hice el cambio de armario de verano, me he dado cuenta de que tengo un montón de ropa de verano y mucha de ella tampoco me apasiona ya. Así que es el momento de hacer limpieza. Puede ser hasta relajante deshacerse de cosas, en vez de estar estresada por una cantidad de ropa inmanejable. Y es que intento mantener mi guardarropa en un tamaño razonable, pero también mejorarlo. Así que voy a centrarme en comprar sólo prendas de calidad y que de verdad me encanten (un verdadero Reto!).
This is another patchwork dress I sewed during lockdown (I enjoyed the process actually!). The denim jacket was worn only in the early morning, then we've been over 30ºC. But mornings can be chilly (which means that I almost freeze my feet in sandals). Usual weather chat!

Este es otro de los vestidos hechos de trozos que me hice durante el confinamiento (la costura me mantuvo entretenida y además me gustó el proceso). La chaqueta vaquera sólo me la puse temprano por la mañana, porque luego hemos tenido más de 30ºC cada día. Pero las mañanas pueden ser frescas, y a veces se me hielan los pies en sandalias y luego me muero de calor. Lo normal, vamos.

  1. I wish you luck on your mission; as you know I'm trying to do the same thing. Reduce the amount of clothing and when buying 'new to you' pieces look for quality. I'm still trying to reduce the amount week by week and at the moment not shopping.

    I love your patchwork dress and the ombre denim blazer - such cool vibes. I also loved your colourful skirt and orange top; such a lovely combination. And as always you have matchy matchy sandals!

    Looking forward to seeing you on Friday.

  2. Patchwork perfection and batik brilliance, two wonderfully summery outfits.
    Good luck with your decluttering the wardrobe, I had sold loads of mine but I seem to have acquired so much over the last week I'm back to where I started from! xxx

  4. I've also been going through some style changes lately, but I haven't slowed down on my shopping. I just keep giving things away!
