Outfit Diaries 001: Barcelona

Although I was in Barcelona for four days, I've only got two outfits of note, considering day one was a travel outfit and day four was a day spent on the beach (not so body confident that I'm ready for bikini pics yet). Nonetheless, I thought I'd share with you my two favourite outfits from the trip.

Top: New Look
Skirt: ASOS
Jacket: Missguided
Shoes: Adidas
Sunglasses: Ray Ban

The first was worn when we went to La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell. It was comfy and practical - considering there is a dress code for the cathedral (covered shoulders / nothing too short). The skirt is one I mentioned ages ago in an ASOS currently coveting post. It was something I was sure I would get a lot of use out of, especially considering the struggle I have with finding skirts that aren't too short on me. Midi is the ideal length if you're a tall girl, as you haven't got to worry that it's too short like a mini skirt or, again, not long enough if it's a maxi style. This one just has an elasticated waist, making it really comfortable and wearable, and also features some pleats, adding a little something to the shape and way it falls.

I paired this with a little came top from New Look. Yellow is my favourite colour, so I love that it's really in at the moment and loads of shops have a lot of items featuring the colour. I like that it's striped so that the whole outfit isn't just blocks of colour and the fit of it is perfect. Then I added my denim jacket from Missguided (via ASOS) to the outfit, so that it was more appropriate for visiting La Sagrada Familia and chucked on my Adidas Stan Smiths - the most comfortable and yet fashionable trainer for a day trekking around the city. And my sunglasses are prescription Ray Bans - the style is Clubround Classic.

Dress: New Look
Shoes: Adidas
Bag: Topshop
Sunglasses: Ray Ban

The following day I wore one of my new favourite dresses. This one is from New Look and cinches in at the waist before flowing out to a midi length (I'm obsessed). I love how neutral this dress is and I also appreciate that it's more or a cream than a white, as in my pale state white doesn't always look very flattering on me. I can't wait to keep wearing this dress throughout the summer - it's nice and airy and yet entirely elegant. Again, I teamed this with my Stan Smiths for the comfort factor (if we weren't walking around all day I'd have had the perfect sandals to pair with it), and added in my circle bag from Topshop. I love the gold studded detail on this and how it worked to keep the outfit very neutral.

So those were my favourite outfits from my trip to Barcelona. Simple, comfortable and warm weather appropriate. Excited to continue styling these items throughout the summer.

Until next time.
