Hi fwendzz! Here’s a more detailed outfit post featuring some of my favorite summer outfits I wore in Barcelona. I know most of them just look like your typical “my dad’s a lawyer and I’ll press charges if you even look at me” starter pack, but summer shopping is always a huge issue for me. I tend to go shopping around this time of the year, and having both my birthday and Christmas around the same season means my fall/closet grows significantly every year, while my summer closet is basically non existent. I still tried to be creative though, and I swear I’ll expand my summer closet this year! But anyways, here’s a sort of look book to everything I wore while roaming the streets of Barcelona:
Trying to play it cool
You’ve already seen this outfit on a previous post, but it’s one of my favorites so I’m reposting some of the pictures. Tap this link for a more detailed breakdown of the outfit.
Not too preppy
Trade your good old boat shoes for a pair of statement sandals (and some incredible arch support lol) to avoid looking like something an Abercrombie catalog spit out. Add sunglasses and if you, like me, need glasses because your eyes are just not functioning properly, carry your other pair of eyes in a colorful clutch to break the rule and the blue aesthetic 🙂
Not too wet
We had one very rainy ray, but we still made the best out it by visiting museums and indoor attractions to avoid locking ourselves in our hotel room. A pair of olive green pants and my bright blue shirt were my outfit of choice. Green’s definitely a fall color, but the bright shirt was was there to remind all of Barcelona that the summer’s just not over yet. Plus, museums tend to be very cold, so long pants are a good way to keep yourself from freezing. Oh, and don’t forget your jacket!
A day at the sea is indeed a day well spent
Especially when you’re wearing the right outfit :)))) I kept it all in shades of blue: a brighter, stronger shade on my swimsuit to highlight my (already naturally) tanned skin, and a lighter shade on the top to keep myself from looking like the Mediterranean itself. Don’t be afraid to shake things up with a cool hat or cap 😉
Adventures in day drinking (part 565875764876)
Bust out those light shorts before the winter forces them back into the back of your closet for a last picnic and rosé at Parc Güell. Rock them boat shoes one last time, and pack your sweater in case it gets chilly atop the mountain.
One last thing: the most important accessory to match all your outfits with: confidence! And don’t gorget to have fun!
