Barcelona, SPAIN

Some people have been asking me what I miss the most about Barcelona now that I am living in Belgium for most of the time. Definitely the sun, I always respond. Not the paella, not the churros, but the sun. Okay, I am not going to lie, the heat in Barcelona can easily reach unbearable and sedative levels during the summer –whose torridity practically lasts until october here-, but May and the beginning of June tend to be a delightfully mild and sunny period.

So as I was packing for my flight back home for a visit to attend my brother’s high-school graduation, I made sure to pack all the spring goodies that I was dying to slip on and hadn’t been able to.

This soft and (kind of) golden ensemble was clearly at the top of that list. If you have been following my Instagram for a while now, you probably noticed that I am severely obsessed with light creamy colours and two-piece sets. Now you mix both of them together, add a light playful see-through top, and BAM! There you have the recipe for a foolproof and non-conventional spring look.

Anyway, I decided that Parc de la Ciutadella with its rich gold accents would be the perfect scenery to exhibit this spring outfit and my dearest antique jewellery, courtesy of my grandmother. The city’s golden light casted a natural warm filter to the images, making me look tanner than I actually am. Thank you for that, Barcelona. 

Now, excuse me while I get back into my bikini and try to get an actual tan… No judging, a girl needs to take advantage of bright days like this!

P.S. Don’t forget your SPF 50 sunscreen though, health always comes first!



Two-piece set: Uterqüe

Top: Uterqüe

    El sol!!! Crec que és el que dona més alegría a la nostra estimada ciutat. Però a mi, el que més m ´ha alegrat, és que portis la pulsera de la teva iaia, que tant et va estimar.

      Thank you, I’m glad you like them! My camera is a NIKON D750. I’ve also used the D7200 in the past, also really nice!

    Very pretty – unexpected use of tennis shoes certainly add a fun factor.

      Hey Seyra! Thank you for the lovely comment!

      I enjoy visiting Barcelona very often, but for now I am happy living in different places and experiencing new cultures.

      Regarding my photos, I use Photoshop, where I have my own “filters” with the Selective Colour option 🙂

    Hi Marta! Totally know how you feel. I moved from Lisbon to London a few months ago and I miss the sun so much! Even those 40 degrees days… Anyway, the 2-piece is amazing and the pictures are beautiful!
