Not So Summery Autumn

Autumn has arrived finally, in the form of some welcomed rain and not so welcomed lower temperatures. But it's still quite warm in the evenings, so urban walks have been in the menu anyway.

Ha llegado el otoño finalmente, en forma de lluvia (que es bienvenida) y también de temperaturas más bajas (no tanto). Pero sigue haciendo bastante bueno para salir a caminar por las tardes, así que he continuado con los paseos urbanos.
I've tried to squeeze some wears from summery items still in my wardrobe. These turquoise-mint trousers are really in the summery side. But I wore them with a knit jumper and my Seasalt trench coat for a walk in a rainy day. The handmade-but-not-by-me jumper was acquired second hand and then shortened. Shoes by Camper. Usual cork bag by Fine Cork Portugal. Scarf was a present.

He intentado ponerme unas pocas veces más algunas de las prendas de verano que aún tengo en el armario. Estos pantalones turquesa claro caen del lado de lo veraniego, pero los combiné con el jersey de punto y el impermeable Seasalt, para un paseo en un día lluvioso. El jersey lo compré de segunda mano, y está hecho a mano. Zapatos de Camper. El habitual bolso de corcho de Fine Cork Portugal. El pañuelo fue un regalo.
Don't make me unleash my flying monkeys! Mwhaha!

I don't care if Halloween is over, it's always a good idea to wear a witchy coat with striped tights and red shoes. I'd have liked to wear a red beret too, but my winter hats are still stored!.
This is a summery 80's skirt, really lightweight, that I purchased at Sunday street market months ago, my eye immediately attracted by its bold print. I paired it with one of my many striped t-shirts (this one by CandA), my second hand red jacket and an orange scarf which is actually a sarong. Autumn is a jackets season in my opinion, which means that brooches also come out to play. This birdie one was a present from Mom. Striped tights by Snag and shoes by Camper. Earrings shopped at Eme, a cute local business!


Me importa bien poco si ya se acabó el halloween, a mí me parece muy bien ponerse un abrigo brujeril con medias de rayas y zapatos rojos. Aunque parezca que voy a soltar a los monos voladores ;DD. Me faltaba un sombrerito, una boina roja quizás, pero mis gorros están todavía guardados.
Esta falda ochentera es muy veraniega y ligera, que compré en el mercadillo del domingo, hace meses, y que me llamó la atención inmediatamente por el estampado tan brillante. Esta vez elegí una de mis (montones) de camisetas de rayas, de CandA, una chaqueta roja de segunda mano y un pañuelo naranja que es un pareo de playa. Como el otoño es la estación de ponerse chaquetas, en mi opinión, también es el momento de ponerse broches. Este pajarito fue un regalo de mi mamá. Las medias de rayas de Snag, zapatos Camper. Los pendientes de una de mis tiendas locales favoritísimas: Eme.
Another summer skirt which was 'winterized' with tights and a jacket. This colourful skirt was purchased at Sunday street market, denim jacket from Asos Marketplace boutique Bich, shoes by Camper. Scarf by DayADay (old), striped t-shirt from a clearance sale, and earrings as above. Usual cork bag by Fine Cork Portugal. Brooch made by me (epoxy resin over a photo and some beads).

Otra falda de verano que he 'inviernizado' con medias y chaqueta. Esta falda tan colorida vino del mercadillo del domingo y es segunda mano, igual que la chaqueta vaquera (ésta es de Asos Marketplace boutique Bich). Zapatos Camper, pañuelo de DayADay (viejo), camiseta de rayas de una liquidación, y los mismos pendientes que antes. El bolso de corcho habitual de Fine Cork Portugal. El broche lo hice yo misma (resina epoxy sobre una fotocopia y unas bolitas de collar)
Sunday outfit to pay a visit to our street market and go for a walk. Not the best idea to wear this teal fleece jacket (CandA, old), as it was a windy rainy day. Cotton leggings were a second hand purchase. Tunic shopped at La Redoute (more than a decade ago). Sneakers by Nike outlet (old). Ancient crossbody bag (probably twenty years old).

El domingo fui al mercadillo y caminar un rato, como de costumbre. No fue una gran idea ponerme esta chaqueta de forro polar, que es de CandA, antigüita, porque llovió y hacía viento. Los leggings de algodón son de segunda mano. Túnica de La Redoute, de hace más de diez años seguro. Zapatillas de Nike outlet (antiguas). Y aún más antiguo bolsito, que creo que tiene veinte años o así.

  1. It seems we are sharing similar weather as we've had a string of rainy days and a serious drop in temperature.
    I applaud you for winterizing your Summer garments and I particularly love those two colourfully patterned skirts.
    And of course it doesn't have to be Hallowe'en to wear that fabulous witchy coat! Those striped tights are delightful as is the cute bird brooch which was a present from your Mum! And finally, thank you for sharing that gorgeous rainbow! Besos xxx

  2. Same here with the weather except the evenings are even colder!

    Fab outfits. Striped tee shirts go with everything! I loved both your skirts; such gorgeous patterns and colours and easily warmed up with jumpers and warm tights; I've been wearing similar. Yay to wearing jackets! Your gifted scarf was such a wonderful match for the top.

    Hope you have a great week,

  3. Loving that rainbow! Our temperatures have plummeted and the rain has been incessant.
    Some fantastic outfit inspiration here - the witchy coat is fantastic and as always your clever colour and pattern combinations have me grimming with joy., You are an artist! xxx
