My favorite outfit from Spain. And also the outfit I wore on my birthday (“25, fuck I’m old!” Anybody remember that line from SATC?). I love how it’s delicate fabric makes it feel dressed up, but casual look makes it appropriate for both going for a stroll in the city and going out for dinner.

We are through my outfits from my vacation in Sant Pol de Mar, and boy was that a good vacation. A week in the company of my man, my sisters and their boyfriends, my parents, my dad’s sister, and my little cutie-pie of a dog (which I insta-storied a lot!). Now I have about a week in New York, and then I’m headed for Denmark for a little while and a pit-stop in London to visit one of my very best friends from university. One is in London, one is in Copenhagen. One is in New York (me). Very nicely spread out. Metropolitans.

I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!

gironaIt’s time for another post from Spain, which I wore on a day trip to Girona. If you didn’t see my first blog post about my vacation to Spain, you can find it right here. This day it was a little cloudy, so we decided to hop in the car (that we had rented for 7 people, but which actually only fitted 4-5 adults and then had those annoyingly small seats in the trunk for 2 kids. That was where I sat for a good hour. An hour where most of the time was spend being happy that I stopped growing at 162cm) and be a little cultural. Girona is known for its medieval architecture, and I loved walking around the Old Town’s tiny streets that are more like spaces between houses than streets. After walking up and down the stairs between houses, we discovered the enormous ancient cathedral, which stands tall at the end of 86 steps.

I wore a new favorite summer dress from She In (so cheap, but so cute), my mini-picnic bag, retro Ray-Bans and casual sandals. When I travel I make sure to pack outfits that will be complimented by my surroundings (#blogger), and I felt like this outfit stood out so well from the beige walls of the Old Town as well as the more colorful part of Girona by  river Onyar.

We had our lunch at a really shitty café (to be honest) that turned out to be a tourist flop, but after walking around the Old Town we discovered the cutest little coffee shop called La Fabrica. Its modern touch complimented the traditional surroundings in such a perfect way. I would definitely recommend this place if you need a little refreshment after exploring.
