Visible Monday - warm-weather layers

I've just spotted an interesting post on Not Dead Yet Style (don't you love the name of her blog?) regarding warm weather layers. I must admit that, during the summer months here in Spain, the idea of wearing layers isn't very tempting, especially during the day-time with temperatures at over 30 degrees centigrade.

However the other evening we were going to be sitting outside one of our favourite restaurants watching the Cabalgata Tradicional (traditional wine procession) in Jumilla, so I decided to wear layers in case it became cooler at midnight! This was my outfit - the photo was taken after we returned home at 00.38.


The top layer was a short-sleeved pink shirt from the Ines de la Fressange collection in Uniqlo, which I spotted on my trip to London in July. Underneath it I am wearing a blue camisole top and the patterned trousers that I bought recently from Kettlewell Colours, ready for my holiday to France next week. You may spot the dark grey wrap tied to my bag, which would have been an additional layer apart from the fact that it wasn't needed. I loved wearing this shirt as it skims over any wobbly bits and, though the angle of the photo doesn't do it justice, I think this is a flattering look for women of a certain age.  This outfit is definitely going to be packed for our trip!

Why not click on the link and have a look at Not Dead Yet Style?  I love Patti's outfit and I also love "Une Femme's", which is where I discovered the link for Visible Monday.

    1. I removed this anonymous comment as the poster was so rude and nasty. Thank goodness the majority of my readers are lovely!

    1. Thanks Lisa. I have to confess that I was in Uniqlo hoping to find trousers, but the colour of the outer top caught my eye. I didn't find any trousers that I liked but bought the top instead!

  6. You look charming ... and perfectly put together for your needs! Travel clothing is always of high keep-it value, and you've found some good pieces. Lucky you ... a trip to France and in good style!

    1. Thanks, Jan. I think these pieces are a good addition to my wardrobe, especially when travelling. I enjoy living in Spain, but a trip to France will make a lovely change and luckily France isn't too far away.

  7. Hi Sue,

    I love those pants on you! Not only the print—which is trendy right now but not "over the top"—but the silhouette is perfect for you! Great ensemble, all the way around!

    Watching the Cabalgata Tradicional sounds wonderful, and I imagine spectators enjoy some of that great Jumilla wine as they "spectate"!

    Have a wonderful trip to France!

  8. Hi Andrea

    Thanks for your comments. Not only did we have a bottle of great Jumilla wine on our table, but we were handed wine by the participants and, if our glasses were empty, they topped them up for us!

    1. Oh my, that DOES sound like FUN! We are able to find Jumilla wine here (in Pennsylvania, USA) and it's always really good. How nice that you live in the middle of one of Spain's many great wine regions!
