Autumn is coming

Let's keep on usual weather talk, which can not be considered small talk anymore. As we've had our first frosts, even if it's still warm in the evenings, it's totally coats season. I tried my best to avoid it, but finally gave up. I wore this yellow cardi on last Monday, when it was still not freezy, but had to wrap myself in a coat every morning since then. I've also said goodbye to maryjanes and welcomed some sensible boots and shoes. So it looks like Autumn is coming finally, and it's November!.

Voy a seguir con mi habitual charla sobre el tiempo, que no creo que se pueda considerar charla frívola nunca más. Han llegado las primeras heladas, por lo que, aunque las tardes siguen siendo templadas, es hora de sacar los abrigos. He intentado evitarlo todo lo posible, pero toca rendirse. Me puse esta chaqueta amarilla gordita el pasado lunes, cuando todavía no hacía tanto frío, pero enseguida tuve que recurrir a los abrigos cada mañana. También me he despedido de las merceditas y dado la bienvenida a zapatos más serios y botas. Así que parece que el otoño está llegando al fin, ¡y es noviembre!.
This vintage 80's skirt is becoming a favourite of mine, despite not being everybody's cup of tea. Cardi by La Redoute (ages ago), shoes by Hotter (also ages ago) and Snag tights. Usual cork bag by Fine Cork Portugal. Bijouterie by Ciclón, and a second hand brooch.

Esta falda ochentera ha sido un descubrimiento (aunque no todo el mundo comparte mi entusiasmo). Chaqueta punto de La Redoute (hace siglos), zapatos Hotter (también antigüitos) y medias Snag. El bolso de corcho de siempre, de Fine Cork Portugal. Bisutería de Ciclón y un broche de segunda mano.
Another purplelized and witchy outfit. I wore for the firt time this coat which was acquired in July!. Yes, I shopped a coat in the depths of a heatwave!, but it was half price and totally a bargain!. I think that quality coats (and boots) make a difference when Winter rears its ugly head!.
Tunic was sewed by me years ago, skirt and tights by Snag.

Otra vez en morado y estilo brujil. Y estrenando un abrigo que compré en julio, ¡sí, en plena ola de calor!, pero es que estaba a mitad de precio y fue una verdadera ganga. Siempre a favor de invertir en abrigos (y botas) de calidad, hacen que el invierno se vea totalmente diferente.
Túnica costura casera hace años, falda y medias de Snag.

These photos were taken by my friend M. when we went for a coffee to a local (private) club which is settled in a magnificent building. Some architectural details are highly decadent, as the revolving door. Obviously, we are just visitors!.
Both trousers and shirt were purchased second hand at Sunday street market, on different occasions. Crochet cardi-thing made by me. Necklace acquired at a charity market, earrings and scarf from a flea market. Sneakers by Adidas outlet (old).

Estas fotos las sacó mi amiga M. cuando fuimos a tomar un café a este selecto club privado que está en un edificio magnífico, con algunos detalles arquitectónicos muy decadentes, como la puerta giratoria. Evidentemente, estuvimos sólo de visita.
Pantalón y camisa, ambos de segunda mano, del mercadillo del domingo, en diferentes ocasiones. Chaqueta de ganchillo. Collar de un mercadillo solidario, pendientes y pañuelo de mercadillo. Zapatillas de Adidas outlet, antigüitas.

We went for a walk and ran errands on Saturday morning, it was a really warm day as soon as the sun was high, so no coat at all. I wore some second hand jeans and a twenty years old jacket, but shoes are new (by Camper). Brooch made by me, old scarf and even older necklace.
I asked Mr.A. to take some photos meanwhile I was alert to not miss the bus!.;DD

El sábado por la mañana, salimos a hacer recados, como de costumbre, y hacía calorcito (tan pronto como el sol estuvo alto), así que nada de abrigos!. Me puse unos jeans de segunda mano y una chaqueta que tiene como veinte años, pero zapatos nuevos de Camper. El broche lo hice yo misma, el pañuelo es antiguo y el collar aún más.
Le pedí a Mr.A. que me sacara unas fotos mientras yo estaba vigilando que no se nos escapara el autobús, por eso la expresión concentrada ;DD
Have a fabulous week!

  1. There's no avoiding weather talk, I'm sure. My blog posts are full of it :-)
    I do not mind wearing coats at all, but it's definitely time to get some warmer ones out of the closet.
    The half-price black one is an absolute stunner!
    Your first outfit is my favourite - such a delightful mix of colours and patterns - closely followed by the outfit you wore for meeting your friend in that posh private club! Besos xxx

  2. I'm not a fan of coats either - I prefer the feel of the sun on my bare arms - but for that black coat I'd make an exception, it's stunning and so you! Some inspiration Autumnal outfits here, Monica. I love the mustard cardi, the vintage 80s skirt, the pink cardi and those jeans with the whopping great turn-ups and those Campers are fab!
    How swanky is that revolving door? An excellent backdrop. I'm glad you didn't miss the bis whilst posing for us, too! xxx

  3. Yes, coats are not my favourite item of clothing either but I do love your new winter coat. What a beauty! It was very clever buying it in a heatwave...

    Fabulous outfits. So colourful and always so beautifully coordinated. I love you in jeans.

    That looked like a very swanky place to have a coffee!

  4. I buy many of my clothes out of season - you get even better deals on them! Love all the purples in these outfits, Monica! Your Campers in the last pic are fantastic! I would wear those.
