WIWW: Colorblocking Khaki

Hello, hellooo!

How´s the week so far? My Monday was spent having coffee and catching up with some friends and yesterday was ¨autumn cleaning¨ day. It´s the time of the year where the summer clothes go up the closet and the darker and thicker clothing goes down and because we still have a few summery days left, I made good use of my skirts like this tulle number in khaki:

As the years go, I have noticed that my dressing aesthetic has gone much simpler like dressing in one color and wearing a multi-colored bag or in this case in a contrasting color to complete the look.

I find that outfits like this doesn´t take much time to create, quite a no-brainer actually but always come out sleek, IMO. As  a plus, tulle skirts are actually perfect to wear on transitional weather because they´re actually warm on those chilly days and yes, the red orange and khaki is the perfect color block autumn combo for me.

Monday Remix: The Transitional Look

Hola, hola!

It´s that time of the month where it´s chilly to wear a mini skirt in the early morning but quite warm in the afternoon to wear jeans. My solution? A midi skirt:

It´s long to cover and warm your legs in the morning and quite airy when the weather rises later. It works for me and it would for you too! I do wear a denim jacket and slipons on my feet for extra warmth. 😄

So what´s your transitional look? ;)

WIWW: The Mili Green Dress

Good morning, my darlings!

Two more days and it´s officially fall/autumn on this side of the world. The weather´s been quite nippy these days although we still have a few sunny days in a week so it isn´t  bad. Here´s a transitional look that I suggest during those warm days:

A shirt dress with an uneven hemline is the perfect in-between seasonal clothing for those sunny days in fall/autumn. This dress works two ways: worn on it´s on or used as a cover-up over pants/pants and top, et voila, outfit complete! You can always put on a cardigan over it when the temperature drops later in the afternoon. ;)

Moreover, the military green color is a basic fall/autumn color and so you´re on `fleek´ with this dress.😉😊 I bought this dress in July but can´t seem to find it any more in the Zara website  but here are some options: 1st is this and 2nd is this in mustard and gray color.

Monday Remix: Matchy-Matchy in Nude

Good morning, everyone!

So how´s the weekend? Mine´s been a cold one but hey, we´ve had the best summer in years and so I´m not complaining.  Anyway, here´s a typical outfit that I wear when the temp drops:

Although, the trend nowadays is about lots of ruffles, cold shoulders and bell sleeves, I still opt for my good old cashmere sweater. You can never go wrong with a cashmere sweater because it´s a basic, a keeper and doesn´t go out of trend anytime! Right? Right.

I´ve noticed that I´m gravitating towards solid colors this year, maybe it´s the age or the lifestyle or both but I´m okay with it because they´re easy to mix and match.

So what are you wearing lately? Has fall/autumn already landed on your doorstep?

Flyday Friday: Nájera

Good morning, my luvs!

Finally, after like a gazillion promises here´s a short travel post for today to share with you. :)

Aside from the world famous paella, Spain´s gastronomy wouldn´t be complete without it´s wines. In fact, one of the most sought after region for wine connaisseurs in the world is the La Rioja region.These pics were taken sometime in September(last year, eeep!) when the harvest season began. We visited a touristy town called Nájera in La Rioja. Here´s what I wore:

striped buttondown, shoes and bag- Massimo Dutti, pants- Mango, twill jacket- Zara
A visit to one of La Rioja´s pueblos, isn´t complete without stopping along the roadside to look at the grapes and a sneaky pic of the ripened grapes ready for harvesting. It´s quite tempting to plop a few on my mouth but they´re strict in here so photos only please and no grape tasting!

Do you see that red cliff on the photo? This place was once used as a hiding place during the Moor invasion and wine cellar by the people a long time ago. In fact, the old houses here were constructed by excavating through the rocks and that´s how the town was built. Nájera came from the Arabic word ¨Naxara¨ meaning ¨built between the rocks¨.

I´m ending this post with a costumary door photo of the Church of the Holy Cross( Sta. Cruz). You know me and doors, we bond really well especially if the church is almost 400 years old!

I hope you enjoyed this short post. It´s been in my draft folder since last year and it´s about time to finally launch it since I might be going back to Najera tomorrow for it´s 12th Puncho(Tapa) Contest which has been going on for a few days now. If you happen to visit La Rioja don´t forget to visit this place, it´s worth it!

Til the next post. :)

Hugs,

Che
