Barcelona!

My outfit today in Barcelona!  Feeling very chic.  I picked up these pants at the Zara here yesterday (you think Zara is everywhere in America?  It’s really everywhere here–it’s a Spanish brand and a can’t-miss Barcelona shopportunity) and they fit PERFECTLY.  Better than any piece I’ve ever found at Zara in the States other than shoes or outerwear.  I have been having some fun with the loose printed pants trend.  Great for travel and in-between weather.  At first none of the ones I tried on fit my body or my style, but this is the second ultra-flattering pair I’ve found recently.  The first are a dark purple and lilac floral pair from Rebecca Taylor, with which I’m also obsessed.  I’ve worn a couple cute outfits with them but haven’t gotten around to posting ’em.

Simple palette with these pantalones keeps the look luxe.  Nude Valentino Rockstud flip flops, white tank, gold jewelry for the most part and my fave mixed-metal studded bangle set.  Summery and very European vacay appropriate, if I do say so myself.

These pics were take at the Picasso Museum here, which has this beautiful balcony as well as the obviously amazing art.

The other, more-function-than-fashion-but-still-fashionable elements of this outfit that are not pictured are my RACHEL Rachel Roy black bag with bronze studs and my Heritage 1981 jean jacket from Forever 21.

What I’m wearing today:

  • Zara pants
  • H&M Conscious Collection tank
  • Valentino flip flops
  • Forever 21 necklace and bangles
  • Francesca’s Collections earrings
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses

Happy weekend! 😀

We only see what’s in front of us, We only see straight ahead

EARRING

Polished but very fun today!  I was very comfortable all day.  These pants are very cozy and the jacket fits perfectly.

This jacket is one of those pieces in my wardrobe that I really love but always feel like I don’t wear enough.  Typically, jackets that don’t button are a huge pet peeve of mine, but the fit of this one was just right and the zipper details add interest to the lower half, so for once I didn’t feel it really needed a button.  Plus, the color, studs on the shoulders–I was obsessed the second I found it!  I love the idea of it with these pants, but I think what made the outfit today was the combo of the royal blue and the yellow bag.   Such a great color combo and the perfect accents to a neutral print like this subtle leopard.

Over the summer I got a second earlobe piercing on my right ear.  Whenever I see this look on girls I think it looks so wonderfully effortless, especially when paired with other stud earrings.  My cousin always has a fantastic mix of little studs and I always want to channel that pretty, effortless vibe.  I hadn’t changed the stud very much and I finally did today and I love the little star!  Betsey Johnson  makes great sets of mismatched earrings and even sells individual initial studs for extra piercings.  The set this stud came from also came with a little gold chain with earring backs on either end to attach to any two studs and have dangling from your ear.  I can’t wait to try it.
