Heat and red outfit #4

In the time I've been browsing through fashion blogs, I've built an idea that I would like to share to see what you think about it. I've noticed that, in colder countries, it seems that especially Sweeden, it's more common to wear higher hemlines than in warmer countries like Spain, where I live. And I think that it has to do with heat because maybe men are "hotter" in warmer weathers and so girls are more exposed to rude words. I don't know if it happens in other countries too, but here we have a large amount of jokes regarding building workers telling rude flirtatious comments to female passers-by. It's even considered of kind of bad taste to wear a high hemline if you're not really thin. Have you noticed the same? What's your opinion about this? How is it in your country?

Well, taking advantadge of the fact that the building sector is going down, but taking also the risk of having bad taste, some day this week I wore this red miniskirt:

I'm sorry about the bad picture, the camera was in a bad mood that day and this is the only worthy photo it took! I would've liked to show that the top has a bow at the back, from the black ribbon under the breast area.

Awarded!

I've been given the "100" award by the sweet Seeker from Searching the Inner Me...

100 award icon

I believe that the first step is now done, saying who awarded me (and linking to her) and posting the award icon. Now I must choose some people to pass the award on, and tell them in their blogs. I believe the award is meant to be given to unique and great blogs. And, to me, a blog is really unique and great when it reflects its owner not only on the surface. So the winners are...

And of course, Searching the inner me, though it's where it comes from!

Thank you, Seeker; and to the awarded people, feel free to continue the award chain if you want :)

Mends to red outfit #3

Well, you know that the red outfit #3 didn't result as expected, so some mend needed to be done! Very kindly, The Seeker advised me to do this:

mend number 1

Back in that day, what I did to "recycle" it for an evening walk was this:

mend number 2

And today I want to present you "someone". You have often seen her bed and dishes, and now here you see: Megan, my beloved dog!! with my dog! Woof!!

Threadless

A friend of mine told me about this T-shirt brand where people send their designs, then viewers vote and if the marks are good, they sell the tees with those prints. They are now in sale and I want to buy a few because the prints are really cool and I could save in the delivery... but I don't know which ones to choose!!

Here you see some of my favourites:

Red outfits #2 and #3

The last days I've been missing because I was spending the weekend with my boyfriend's family. It was delicious to be with such warm people :)

Now, the promised red outfits of the day: I wore this one on a especially hot day last week -- luckily I took the car, otherwise I could've died drowning in my own sweat waiting for the train at 2 p.m.!!

Chinese-inspired outfit

This shirt is now a bit too small for me, but I refuse to give it away because I'm in love with that Chinese style. Both the dragon and the buttoning are fab. <3

Today I wore the outfit below. In the early morning the color combination seemed ok to me, but I should've stopped to look at the whole of it and I would've realised how badly it suits me. I seem to have no shape in it :S

a combination I will never wear again

Now I have to continue writing my degree final work, which I have to hand in the next month. At least the Olympic Games are over and I won't be watching the TV every now and then...

Red outfit #1

So, here's the first of the series!

red skirt and white tank and sandals

This skirt is one of my favourites! Though sometimes it gives me embarrasing Marilyn Monroe moments with any casual breeze...

I'm glad to introduce you to my red laptop rucksack:

This has been my everyday companion since I came back from the beach. Its bright red is filling my head with bright hopes and happiness. So, here I begin a series of red outfits -- every one must have something red, and this will last... till I get bored :P

It's summer time!!

I'm back from the campsite and everything went well :) Now I'm wearing 6 thread bangles on my wristle, gifts from kids and others, and hence somehow ready for my real vacation on the beach!! :D

I appreciate your kind comments in the previous post and I must say that though I haven't had the time to comment on yours I've read them all. I'll try to leave some comments before I leave tomorrow.

I'm going to post two outfits from some time ago. I love this summer trend of floral dresses, maybe because of the Mango advertising I could see every morning last spring:

Mango campaign

Though not as much as I would've liked, I've worn some flowers myself, like here for a special event (I also love this dress' 20s look!):

A flowered dress

Or here, where I'm happily wearing the dress my sister gave to me, which in fact is from Mango, and the beautiful lost wedges:

Now, before I leave, I have to show you something! I just found these high-waisted shorts in the wardrobe, they come from my sister's childhood and they still fit me. Yipeee!!

Old navy shorts

And at last it's time to go... Enjoy the lovely summertime!!

Beach and relax at last!!
