And I’m On My Way to You (Another look from Spain!)

What I wore on a day trip from Barcelona to Tossa del Mar, Spain.  This yellow dress is a staple in my wardrobe.  It fits like a glove and is the perfect fit and flare style with just the right seams to flatter my body type.  And with the color, this simple dress is a statement on its own.

I love pairing blue with this dress, and my blue rubber cat flats worked like a summer dream, as did my new go-to blue and green trimmed summer fedora and this cool metallic blue cuff that I picked up on my trip.  It’s reminiscent of the colorful metallics from the recent Lanvin runway, but I found it at an craft fair in Barcelona!  Love.

Had fun stacking cuffs, also wearing one that I love with a blue and green and gold pattern from Art Effect.  One cuff is solid and the other more intricate, and they’re different sizes, so the combo works like stacking other bracelets.  Those and some blue and green stone stud earrings were the only jewelry I needed.

Neither of these are pictured, but when I was chilly I threw on my favorite Forever 21 jean jacket and I carried my stuff in my fave snake print Stella McCartney crossbody (a nice neutral pattern to be stylish but not steal attention from these cool colors).

What I wore in Tossa del Mar:

  • J. Crew Factory Store dress
  • Charlotte Olympia shoes
  • Betsey Johnson hat
  • blue cuff from Barcelona craft fair
  • patterned cuff from Art Effect
  • Francesca’s Collections earrings

Title from new Lea Michele single that has already become my song of the summer, On My Way.  Totally obsessed–puts me in a great mood and I can’t get it out of my head.

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! 😀
