Viva Barcelona!

Barcelona was one of the most inspiring places I have ever been. There is an electricity in the air that is almost tactile. Art is EVERYWHERE, on buildings, in parks, on people. 
I was completely in awe of the women in Spain. They were perfectly put together and looked like it was just a happy accident. There was no one who looked like they'd spent more than 10 minutes on their makeup; a red lip, or a kohl rimmed eye was enough.
I wanted every item of clothing that I saw in every shop window. There were hand painted silk harem pants, kimono sleeve blouses paired with cargo pants, chandelier earrings made out of wood. Everything was unexpected. 

 Hat- Bill Hallman ( I soooo got my moneys worth on that purchase!)
Earrings- Anthropologie
Shirt- Forever 21+

 Gaudi inspired me so much!

At Park Guell;  Sunglasses- Forever 21
Earrings- Belk

It was so hot that this dress was the perfect choice for a walk/hike in the park!
Dress- Ross
Shoes- Steve Madden
Sunglasses- Forever 21

This was the greatest ice cream I've ever had in my life!
Shirt- Nordstrom Rack

By the end of the trip I was definitely embracing the style that I'd seen throughout Europe. My hair was less styled, my make up was simple and I felt so relaxed. 
Well, that was my vacation, I guess it will be back to normal outfits from here on out. I hope y'all enjoyed my vacation snaps.

    I bought a little magnetic gecko to put on my fridge to remind me of my time with Gaudi.
