Autumn Calling

Despite many magazines and shopwindows are showing all kind of knits and tweed and even coats, it's still summer here, everyday 30-something Cº. And I still wear summery clothes, even if you can see me wearing a jacket in these pics (mornings are chilly!). I took my photos with the first rays of the morning sun actually, but in no time this will not be possible: soon it will be dark when I go to work. So I'm making the most of these moments!.

Aunque muchas revistas y escaparates ya exponen todas clases de ropa de punto y lana y hasta abrigos, sigue siendo verano por aquí, cada día a más de 30ºC. Así que sigo llevando ropa de verano, aunque me veáis con chaqueta en alguna foto, porque las mañanas son más frescas. Me saco las fotos con los primeros rayitos de sol de la mañana, pero muy pronto no será ya posible, porque será de noche cuando vaya a trabajar. Así que ¡hay que aprovechar estos momentos!.
I tried another layering over this oversized tunic, this time adding more linen in the form of a light jacket. Even if the colours don't match, I think they can work together. I'm a huge fan of 'short over long' layering anyway.

He probado otra curiosa superposición con esta túnica que me está bastante grande. Esta vez le he añadido una chaqueta de lino, de colores no exactamente combinables, pero creo que funcionan juntos. Este estilo de 'corto sobre largo' me gusta mucho.

Looking forward to wear more trousers as the weather is not suffocating (30ºC feels totally normal here, particularly after heatwaves). I sewed these trousers on Feb2022, they were made of a sarong that you can see here. Still remember that its slippery fabric was a nightmare to sew, so some seams are less than perfect. But the colour is totally my thing.

Estaba deseando ponerme más pantalones ahora que el tiempo no es tan sofocante (30ºC se sienten como agradables y normales, después de las olas de calor). Me hice este pantalón en Feb2022, usando un pareo-sarong (podéis verlo aquí). Todavía me acuerdo que coser esta tela tan resbalosa fue un fastidio, así que algunas costuras quedaron regular. Pero sigo contenta con el color.

Also welcoming some maxi skirts that I've been neglecting, because I didn't feel like wearing so much fabric around my legs when it was really hot. Even the gauzy cotton felt uncomfortable!
My 'matrioskas' skirt is usually worn with similar colour combos which include red-orange and turquoise. This time I wore a teal bolero-cardi, that creates a contrast over an orange top, and added a versatile necklace that seems to go with any possible colour!.

También estoy encantada de ponerme faldas largas que no estaba usando hasta ahora, porque no me apetecía llevar tanta tela cuando hacía calorón. Hasta la gasa de algodón me parecía asfixiante.
Esta falda con matrioskas suelo usarla con colores similares siempre, rojo-naranja y turquesa. Esta vez me he puesto una chaquetita bolero color azulverdoso, sobre un top naranja, y le he añadido un collar que realmente va con casi cualquier color.

Have a fab week!

  1. Three fantastic outfits, the first one is particularly lovely with the artful layering and fabulous mix of colours. I'm glad that the weather is more to your liking. xxx

  2. The mornings and the evenings here are much cooler but it's not at all cold - yet! The evenings get dark quite quickly, too.

    I love your outfits; they're always thoughtfully put together and interesting. I love layers and short over long layers look good. The trousers you sewed are beautiful and what a marvellous colour. Loved the maxi skirt and of course all the fabulous accessories with each outfit. I bet people look forward to seeing your fab outfits each day!

  3. I actually love it when morning are starting to get slightly cooler! Not so much the shorter days, though. Taking outfit photos will indeed no longer be possible before or after work, unless one uses artificial light, which I hate!
    Loving these three outfits, the first one being a particular favourite!

    P.S. Sorry for commenting so late, I've been away, and I'm trying to catch up :-)

  4. I love it when a layered outfit just works out perfectly. You're an expert at it!
