D'you want to go to the seaside? >> Brighton


 Hola! Ya estoy de vuelta de mis vacaciones en Inglaterra (aiss). He estado muy ocupada, primero con mis clases y luego con un pequeño viaje por Canterbury, Dover y finalmente Brighton. ¿Ysabéis que? ¡He conocido a Victoria! Seguro que seguís Marmalade, el blog de esta guapísima mejicana, pero si aún no la conocéis, ¡visitarla de inmediato, tiene unas fotos increíbles y un estilazo! Fue divertido conocerla, y creo que es una buena idea quedar con bloggers, así que si estáis por Bilbao, avisarme y nos vemos!!

Hello! I'm back from my holidays in England (sigh). It has been a busy three weeks, with the classes first and with my little trip that took me to Canterbury, Dover and Brighton during my last week. One of the highlights of my holidays was meeting Victoria, I'm sure you know this lovely mexican lady's blog Marmalade, if you don't, visit it immediately, her photography is amazing and you have to love her style! It was a fun meeting, and I seriously recommend getting together with other bloggers, so if you're in Bilbao, let's get to know each other!!



Es rarísimo que aún no haya salido este vestido en mi blog. Pertenece a mi madre, que lo hizo ella misma para una boda en los 70. Me queda perfecto, siempre me han dicho que me parezco mucho a mi madre de joven, ahora también nos parecemos un poco. El vestido es una de mis prendas favoritas, cada año estoy desando que lleguen los meses de calor para poder ponérmelo. Creo que me lo pongo desde hace 5 años ya, y sé que para mi nunca pasará de moda. Mucha gente me pregunta por el vestido cuando me lo ve, se nota que es especial.

It's a wonder to me that this dress had never appeared in my blog. My mother made it in the 70s for a wedding. It fits perfectly, as I am very similar to my mother when she was my age, we look quite alike now too! It is probably my favourite piece in my wardrobe,I have worn it for already five years and I always look forward to wearing it when the warmer months arrive. This dress gets many compliments, it's such a special piece!

Your mom's dress looks incredible against this setting. Such a unique print. I wish our oceans were this blue. Sadly it's often unsafe to go swimming with all the pollution in the Pacific.
