Postcards From Berlin- Shopping my Daughter´s Closet

As I said, I always travel light. I only brought a pair of skirts, a top and my comfortable walking boots;  so I am shopping my daughter´s closet until I find vintage bargains to wear. It is not an easy task, but I do love a challenge...
 What do you think: fun or crazy?
Como os dije viajo ligera de equipaje. Sólo traje un par de faldas, un top y mis botas más cómodas; así es que estoy usando ropa del armario de mi hija hasta que encuentre gangas vintage que ponerme.No es fácil, pero me encantan los retos...
Qué te parece: divertido o loco? 
           Wearing:-  my  own flowery maxi skirt and boots
                        - Husband´s  belt 
                        - My daughter´s shirt and 50s white sunglasses. 
     -If you are following me, please, please let me know , so I can find you.

Me parece lo más sensato.
Un reto de primeras, pero la mejor solución, que luego hay que tirar ropa al volver a hacer la maleta, y eso si es dificil...
Suerte!

Vintage Vixen dijo...

maya dijo...

Atrevido, colorido y divertido, tu sello personal...
El mio es un poco mas conservador, lo que me hace admirar mas el factor sorpresa del reto.

Anna Bonfiglio dijo...

Come to my blog I made a new post!

That is a wonderful color combination! I'm so into color right now and that outfit is very inspiring.

Fashion Bombay dijo...

Love that shirt and those glares are awesome :)

Lidia dijo...

Me parece arriesgado pero seguro que encuentras de todo! Berlín es un buen sitio para el vintage!

Un besote

Laura Tenshi dijo...

I love the idea you had to bring few clothes, it proves that you can still put together a great look even without your whole wardrobe.
I would never think this outfit is crazy, you know how crazy I am about mixing different patterns and color.
Love it and the street art is awesome.
Berlin is amazing, have tons of fun !

señora Allnut dijo...

pues me parece una idea buenísima (estoy a favor de los equipajes ligeros!), sobre todo si vas a ir de compras, mejor que mejor!
Si voy a Londres, llevo sólo media maleta llena!
Me encantan tus ideas y me gusta mucho ese conjunto de rayas y flores con el verde como unión!!
besos

Tracy dijo...

Me parece lo más pertinente, pero tannnnn difícil de llevar a cabo...

Maria Garcia Burgos dijo...

Las dos cosas, divertido y loco!!! Desde luego admiro que tengas esa capacidad, porque a mi me cuesta cerrar la maleta cada vez que me voy de viaje.

Un beso

Lissy dijo...

Love love love the mix of stripes and floral! You look great!

Polka Princess dijo...

Comtesse de ferveur dijo...

Very inspired outfit, I always love a stripes and floral mix! Love those photos of you! xxxxx

Fun and crazy! I love the stripes and floral!
Have a great time visiting

annimal dijo...

I love your pattern mixing! You are an artist, may you find many beautiful items on your trip, I can't wait to see what you will create next!!!

fashionoverfifty dijo...

Not crazy at all! I lovemixing patterns this year--it's really extending my wardrobe and its a challenge. I think this works because the patterns are the same size and they both have green--so they are talking the same story.
Enjoy your stay!

Fashionistable dijo...

Works for me. Your daughters top is very this season Prada esque. Hope you are having a wonderful time. Xxxx

masQmay dijo...

Me parece genial!! Creativo al máximo a la par que ecosostenible !!

the fashion turd dijo...

ciao ciao.... hope youre well?....i am creating a new jewellery line... i might send you a piece to wear and show off and look fabulous in!!

Franca dijo...

Fun! That's travelling very light but your daughters stuff suits you perfectly! Enjoy Berlin, I am a little jealous, I have not been for two years and am having withdrawals!

Roz dijo...

The first image is such a great juxtaposition of you in those glorious colours against the fabulous painted backdrop. As for shopping your daughter's closet - I do this the other way around - I shop my Mum's closet. Share and share alike!

Leia dijo...

Awesome pictures! And isn't it fun shopping your daughter's closet? My mum and I always share clothes. We aren't the same size but somehow we make it work! :)

I can never pack lightly so I do admire you a lot; I always bring too much of something and then forget to pack something super important like underwear or shoes :)))). I love your skirt, such a beautiful print! Besos:)

Karin dijo...

I think it is pretty amazing, I love the mish mash of colours and the fact that you are wearing your husbands belt! so lovely xxx

As always, original and inspiring.
I love the glasses and fell in love with your daughter's shirt.

Amazing sunglasses!

Ioana Liliana dijo...

Such amazingness my sweet friend! I love the pattern mix, and the setting is perfection!

FashionFreak dijo...

Pues la verdad es que no sé si es por el fondo de las fotos, porque estás en Berlín o porque ya te conozco y tu personalidad traspasa cualquier atuendo, que realmente me gusta tu combinación "loca". Sí, puede que sea chocante pero qué coño, a veces es divertido mezclar flores con rayas y hacer combinaciones alocadas, y despreocuparse de si lo que llevas en la maleta combina todo a la perfección entre sí.
Haces bien en viajar ligera de equipaje, porque además estoy segura de que encontrarás muchos chollos por ahí ;)

1 beso muy grande (y mil gracias por las felicitaciones!)

Ana dijo...

I hate carrying lots of luggage too. You learn to pack light as you get older, I used to take so many bags every time! Love the mix of green stripes and pink flowers xx

YvonneSedition dijo...

I love it, the colours look great together. I always think you put your outfits together really well.

fdiary dijo...

Mixing prints is the thing to do now and I know I love it. I love to see outfits pair with unexpected prints. It gives me inspiration. I love the stripe blouse with the floral skirt. Quirky and fun!

Fashion Tales.... dijo...

This outfit is so playful. It's fun because you've managed to wear spring whilst the stripes and printed florals are not taking away from your look, in fact it adds a wonderful touch! I love it! ~Madison -xxoo

Hope Adela Pasztor dijo...

i LOVE the pink and green color combination; that has been my all-time absolute favorite color combination for YEARS. great floral print, and happy shoppping! =)

Absolutely FABULOUS! Crazy done with such class and style! I know you know I love this, and Bella must be beside herself too with joy, stripes and florals is such a fave for us both I think.

Lots of love to you from me. Big besosssss xxxxxxxx

que arte tienes para mezclar las telas estampadas! siempre sales guapissima en colours fuertes - disfruta Berlin!

Marissa dijo...

I'm so jealous that you and your daughter can share clothes. My mom is the most stylish lady I know, but she's gained some weight as she's aged. She still looks fantastic, but we're not the same size anymore. And I could just cry thinking about all of the amazing clothes she had in the '60s and '70s that she didn't hold on to.

Sabrina dijo...

Thank you so much for your sweet comment dear! I adore your style, everything about this is just perfect. That floral maxi and the background EPIC
I've added you to my blog roll too ;-)
