What I wore in Barcelona

There's no doubt about it - it's definitely getting colder here in London. Most mornings I'm walking to the station with my hands deep in my pockets, shivering, and dreaming of warmer climates. Barcelona feels like a life time ago. Over the next few blog posts, I'll be sharing photos from my trip - it's taken me long enough, right?! For this first instalment  I'll be giving y'all a sneak peek of my day-to-day outfits in Barcelona:


Dress - Forever21
Sandals - old 

I remember travelling from London in an oversized Topshop knit but once you got off the plane, the heat hit you. Hard. So once at the hotel I changed into this little number. Oh I do love a dress. This dress is so light and floaty, bringing it to Barcelona was a seriously good move. I've been invited to a James Bond themed Christmas party in December so will probably be hitting the casino and sipping martinis in this dress once again! These wedges sandals I got from Shoe Zone back in the day. Does Shoe Zone even still exist?! 



Denim shorts - H&M
Black top - old
Shoes - New Look 
Frizzy hair - my own

Remember me mentioning about these shorts here? I couldn't decide which pair to keep, so ended up with them both! The black top I've had for years. It was from Freemans back in the day. Admittedly I've mainly worn it out clubbing as I feel a bit naked with the cut out sides and the cut out back - however it was perfect for Barcelona's heat. The shoes I bought from New Look just before Barcelona. You can find a close up pic of them here. They have the most amazing embellishment which caters to the magpie in me! I love them so much I ordered another pair online the other day as New Look is currently offering 25% off footwear online.



Shoes - New Look
Black camisole - old
Shorts - River Island


Same shoes again! I get so much wear out of them. Best. purchase. ever. The shorts are a concession brand sold at River Island which I first mentioned here. Love the dip dye, but they're quite short so I feel funny about wearing them around London! I'll be wearing them this season with cosy oversized knits to balance out the she's-half-naked-but-then-she's-not-all-that-naked-really factor! The top is a lacy camisole I've had for years. I think it may even be underwear / sleepwear. But I love it so much I don't care!


Dress - Motel


A non-mirror pic finally! This was the day we visited Gaudi's Park Guell. It was so beautiful. I loved the view from the top where there were amazing mosaics composed of lots of different patterned tiles. This was the day I wore my lovely Motel dress for the first time. I love stripes but they really aren't flattering on me, so I tend to avoid them like the plague. The vertical stripes on this dress were a whole other affair. I loved the floaty, free nature of the dip hem skirt and a strapless dress was a godsend in that heat!


Damn. These photos are making me all nostalgic... wish I was still there!


Dress - Forever21
Sandals - New Look (old)


On the last day I wore my LBD again. I think this is what they call love. You know when something excites you to such a degree that you cannot bear to be apart from it? Yeah, that. It was another swelteringly hot day so I tied my hair up in a high pony tail and paired my dress with my New Look sandals which I've had for years. They have a small wedge which makes them perfect for long days spent on your feet sightseeing. 

I know it's rare to see pictures of me in any shape or form on this blog. I honestly can't believe anyone would be interested in the clothes that I wear or want to see my mug / my body. But if you've liked this post, let me know and maybe I'll consider doing some more like it in the future!
