Fashion style & beauty tips for women over 40

Look of the day: Shopping with mum

El pasado sábado me fui de compras con mi madre. Me encanta hacerlo porque cuando va conmigo siempre acaba comprándose alguna pieza que no se compraría si fuera sola… ¡¡me gusta que arriesgue un poco con su estilo!!

Para la ocasión escogí una falda larga de Etxart & Panno que compré hace años (¡y la verdad es que me encanta!), con una camiseta básica en tono azul y un cazadora tejana. Creo que el azul y el amarillo suave crean una  combinación muy fresca e ideal para esta época del año.

Por cierto las fotos me las hizo mi madre y no os podéis imaginar el show: “Levanta la cabeza”, “Hombros atrás”, “¡Patri esa pose no me gusta!”, “Mueve los pies, que así quedan feos”, “Coloca la piernas de otra forma que así se ven torcidas”… ¡¡Yo me parto con ella!! Jajajajaja…

Bueno, al menos las fotos no quedan tan mal ¿¿no??
¡¡Feliz martes y gracias por vuestros comentarios!!

Last Saturday I went shopping with my mum. I love doing it ‘cause when she’s with me she always buys pieces that would never buy by her own… I like her to take risks when it comes to dressing!!

For that day I worn a long Etxart & Panno skirt that I bought years ago (and to be honest I love it!), with a basic t-shirt in light blue and a denim jacket. I do believe that blue and soft yellow is a very refreshing and ideal combination for this time of the year.

BTW, pictures were taking by my mom and I’m sure you can’t imagine the “show”: “Raise your head”, “Shoulders back”, “Patri I don’t like that pose!”, "Move your feet, they look ugly the way they are…”, “Place your legs otherwise”… I always split a gut when she takes me pictures!!!

Well at least they don’t look so bad, right??
Happy Tuesday ladies and thanks for your comments!!

Fashion tip: Si queréis llevar falda larga con zapato plano y no sois muy altas un buen truco es llevar un cinturón estrecho que os defina la cintura de forma que no parezcáis una “columna andante”… ;-)

Fashion tip: If you want to wear a long skirt with flats and you’re not very tall a good tip is to wear a narrow belt to define your waist so you won’t look like a “walking column”… ;-)

HAHA... Love the outfit, and you'll see the vintage jewelry in a few weeks. I just bought the pieces this past wknd and I'll photograph for July in a few weeks.
