Sticky

One thing that Barcelona definitely is on a warm November day is sticky. Although it was nice to leave the heavy coat in Dublin and jump back into a dress & a biker jacket, I could not control my frizzy hair and sort of melting makeup. Not the best look for outfit shots but when you get lost in pretty little lanes, admiring cute little restaurants, hidden boutiques and unusually dressed locals, you don't really mind.
Spanish have a unique sense of style. Home to some of high street's biggest brands, it often appears to me that locals prefer to shop... well, locally. Oversized tops, biker boots, leater jackets, skinny jeans and draped scarves dominate the streets. Everyone seems comfortable in their clothes, smiling widely and kissing a friend/partner/anyone (do you also find the Spanish kissing a lot?!).
Wearing heels seem so out of place there, I decided to stick to flats myself. The oversized dress provided a lot of much needed freedom and allowed for copious amounts of tapas over the weekend...

It's in the details...

Vicky, Christina..

Barcelona of course! I don't know about you but I absolutely love that movie. Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson AND Javier Bardem in one place = good times!

I liked Barcelona first time I visited a few years ago but this time around I totally fell in love with the place. I think staying in less touristy area was a brilliant idea and I would recommend for anyone going there soon to pick the funkiest place on Airbnb and really soak up the atmosphere, people and of course, the amazing food & wine (which I spent most time photographing and enjoying ;). Outfit post from my trip coming soon but for now, just enjoy this fabulous city.
