PREPPY


I wanted to blog about this blazer since I got my hands on it!

He querido publicar un look con este blazer desde llego a estar en mis manos!


 On my last trip home to London I had planned to invest in a few blazers. However, I didn't see many about, and what I did come across, I didn't like. Then talking to mum casually about how annoyed I was about not being to find any blazers I liked in the shops, she mentioned that she had a whole bag or two full of blazers from her larger days to give away. Of course, I got to raid those bags and keep whatever took my fancy, and this blazer was one of them. I might even dare say it's my favourite! You already saw the plain red one I published in my post:

En mi ultimo viaje a casa en Londres, habia planeado comprarme unas americanas. Pero no vi muchas en las tiendas, y lo poco que habia no me gustaba. Luego hablando casualmente con mi madre sobre el tema, me dijo que tenia una bolsa o dos llena de americanas y chaquetas de cuando ella era gordita, para regalar. Por su puesto que pude revisar el contenido de esas bolsas y quedarme lo que quisiera, y esta fue una de las que me ha gustado. Me atreveria a decir, incluso, que es mi favorita! Ya habeis visto la roja en mi publicacion:
Leather and Glitter (pincha aqui)

   
As soon as I saw this blazer I thought it would look cool with jeans. I no longer own a pair of regular length jeans, so I wore them with this cropped denim short shorts, and I was happy with how it all came together. - And most importantly, I felt truly comfortable - which is what I was going for! Comfort! 

En cuanto vi esta chaqueta me parecia que quedaria bien con unos vaqueros. Ya no me queda ningun par de vaqueros largos, asi que me los puse con estos cortitos, y me ha agradado mucho el resultado de la combinacion. - Y aun mas importante, me sentia verdaderamente comoda - lo cual era mi objetivo! Comodidad!

 I wore this outfit to mass, then lunch at a friend's house, and then to another friend's pre-baptism ceremony. I knew I had a very long day ahead of me which was fully packed. So much so that I was late to mass, so kind'a went to a later mass than planned which I was also late to, and then my friend's brother picked up from church in his car after mass so I could make it to their house for lunch! Ay ay ay! I guess I can't complain when I such good friends! 

Taking these pictures was a real challenge because it was so windy! - But I managed it!


Me puse este look para ir a misa, a comer a casa de unos amigos, y luego para la cermonia de catecumena de otra amiga. Sabia que iba a ser un dia largo, y lleno. Tanto asi que no llegue a misa y mas o menos fui a una misa mas tarde - al cual tambien lleguE tarde, y al final de la misa el hermano de mi amiga me acerco a su casa en su coche para llegar bien a su casa para comer con ellos! Ay ay ay! Pero no me puedo quejar mucho de tener tan buenas amistades!

Sacar estas fotos me ha costado porque hacia muchisimo viento! - Pero lo he logrado! 


And if you ask me, the blazer was the make or break garment here, as the photos below shall demonstrate... 

Y me preguntais, la chaqueta ha sido la prenda que ha hecho este look. como os compruebo con las fotos de abajo...

 
Those fur ear muffs you see me holding there, are from the Parfois sales. After weeks of wanting a pair - since I hate when the cold gets into my ears - I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them, and they were down to ten euros from twenty. How could I resist? 
 
 
Esa cosa que vez que tengo en la mano, los he comprado en las rebajas de Parfois. No se como se llaman en Espanol, pero en inglEs se llaman ear muffs. Tras semanas de querer comprar una cosa de estas - ya que no aguanto que el frio me entre por la orejas - me he enamorado a primera vista, y encima estaban a casi diez euros, rebajados de veinte. Como iba a poder resistir la tentacion de comprarmelas?
 

 You may love or hate ear muffs, and I must admit, I never thought I would actually purchase or wear a pair of ear muffs in my adult life. However, when it's cold, keeping warm really becomes my number one priority, and if I have to compromise style, then I will compromise style. - Although I actually love these ones in particular!

Podeis amar u odiarlos, pero tengo que reconocer, que pensaba que jamas me compraria, ni me pondria, esta cosa en mi vida adulta. Pero cuando hace frio, el manterme protegida del frio es mi primera prioridad, y si eso significa ir poco estilosa, pues que asi sera! - Aunque este en particular me ha encantado!


It's funny how our tastes and perceptions of things can change over time...

Have you recently embraced any trends or garments you thought you never would?

Es curioso como nuestros gustos pueden alterarse con el tiempo... 

Has adoptado alguna moda o prenda que pensabas que jamas lo harias? 

Much Luv,
Rebequit Rose
