Growing sharp

2:55:00 PM

Although today looks like it's going to rain all afternoon for the whole sake of ruining my afternoon wine with friends, yesterday was sunny and warm so I went short sleeves and mini skirt all the way.

After walking around the center of Barcelona we went to see these gardens in Montjuic which have an area full of cacti, from prickly pear ones with those orange flowers on top, to the San Pedro and Mammillaria we all see in Western movies or Lucky Luke :)

I wore a basic black t-shirt from Zara which has some shiny details on the shoulders and it's quite large so it's for those I-need-to-be-comfy days.  The floral embroidered skirt from Zaful was the star of the outfit since it was all quite basic but the pop of color was just on these subtle beige and red roses.

Although this skirt looks more right for date nights, dinner, or clubbing, I decided to hit the streets wearing it with my casual Converse All Star. The skirt, which you can still get HERE features a flattering high waistlines, in mesh fabric, lined and an invisible side zipper. 

Though light was not the best -since it was getting late- we took some pictures anyway because the place was gorgeous and we were feeling silly, but headed back to downtown and had a sip of wine and some tapas :) Despite my tired looks (long week at the office and longer Friday), yesterday I managed to run a bit and go home get changed and meet my friend, had dinner out with two friends and watched a movie -one of those no one would watch on purpose but oh it's on my list.

  1. I think your outfit paired with the white converse is great for what you were exploring that day. You look comfortable enough to stroll about and then take a seat at any cafe or restaurant later in the afternoon. You look so happy!

  2. You look gorgeous, I love the open hair, it adds a nice touch of whimsy and poise.

  3. What a fantastic place to visit! I really love cacti they are such interesting plants. Su
