My August, part one

Despite the mosquitoes, the crisis and the terrible hot weather, I had a nice August. I hope you too!

In the End, Lace Shorts

Never say never! Although I once said (I even wrote a comment about it) that it was very difficult that I wore lace shorts, I succumbed to the temptation! Maybe it was because I saw many inspirational versions about how to wear them or because I found a pair that wasn’t too short and tight (no need to show off my full legs...). What do you think about this trend? Like or dislike? 

¡Nunca digas nunca! Aunque dije (e incluso escribí un comentario) que era totalmente improbable que yo llevara shorts de encaje, ¡acabé cayendo en la tentación! Quizás fueran las distintas versiones que me habían inspirado o que encontrara unos pantalones ni muy cortos, ni muy pegados (que ya no estamos para lucir tanto...). ¿Qué te parece esta tendencia? ¿Te gusta o disgusta?

Summer Books and Libraries

One of the best things to do during my holidays is reading. I like to lie down at the beach or at the swimming pool, to take a book and to spend hours and hours (I take a break to eat something, for sure!). Anything complicated and with only one condition: be entertaining (no matter what kind of novel: detective, drama, romantic…). And for this summer I have four books to devour…

Durante las vacaciones una de las cosas que más me gusta hacer es leer. Me tumbo en la playa o cerca de una piscina, cojo un libro y me paso horas y horas leyendo (tomo un descanso para comer, ¡por descontado!). Nada complicado y con la única condición de que sea entretenido (no me importa si el tipo de novela que sea: drama, negra, romántica…). Y para este verano tengo cuatro libros para devorar…

"The Distant Hours" by Kate Morton, "The Prisoner of Heaven" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, "Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L.James and "Los Buenos Suicidas" (not in English, sorry!) by Toni Hill
And because I like to own the books (I never borrow them from the public library) I adore the private libraries. Here some of my favourites…

Y como me gusta poseer los libros (nunca pido prestados en la biblioteca pública) adoro las bibliotecas privadas. Aquí algunas de mis favoritas…

My own little library (by me)
Peaceful scandinavian library (via Pinterest)
Chic library (via Pinterest)
Colorful library, impractical or not... but lovely (via woodcipandmagnolia)
White decoration (via Boligmagasinet)
With classical furniture (via The Shelby)
Although I wouldn't mind to visit this stunning library at Mälmo (via Lolitas)
Have a nice week!

No importa si es en el mar o la montaña... hay tantos sitios donde tenderse y relajarse. Aquí algunos de mis favoritos...
