I packed this outfit in my (very, very overstuffed) suitcase especially to wear in Barcelona and I'm so happy I chose it for our afternoon at Park Güell. The park is quite large and we spent many hours wandering around but my favorite part was of course the main terrace where we got to see more of the amazing work by Antoni Gaudí and yet another beautiful view of the city!

On this fine, windy day in Barcelona we took a cable ride through the sky and hiked up to Castell de Montjuïc and the view of the city from there was just amazing! I kept my look super simple this day and ended up really liking it actually (I'm sure you'll see me in it a couple more times on this trip!); in fact, I'm a bit obsessed with wearing these American Apparel Mid-Length circle skirts (it really is a shame they stopped making them!), and these boots are my vintage Cole Haan's that are one of my favorite finds! Later in the evening when we got back to the Gothic Quarter we serendipitously stumbled upon a huge parade! Literally every day/night in Barcelona there was something going on in the Gothic Quarter and since our hotel was located right in the heart of it, we got pretty lucky and got to see and experience so much!

Once again it's been quite some time since my last post but I think now that we are in Sweden for the remainder of our stay I'll get more time to catch up; so here's to part one of my time in Barcelona! I'm thinking shorter posts/parts might be better than the huge huge ones, so for Barcelona expect to see about 4 parts or so from our 5 days there back in the beginning of February.
These were taken as Casa Batlló which was so quirky and cool to visit and imagine what it was like to live there in that house; and also the surrounding downtown area was quite charming. I brought this Zara coat to wear particularly in Barcelona because I thought it looked great with all the architecture and colors of the city; and of course my Free People Matador hat made plenty of Barcelona appearances as well; though it's always quite the job to wear while it's windy, I've lost count of the amount of times it's flown off my head and I've had to make a mad dash for it before it blows too far away.
Our hotel was located right in the heart of the Gothic District and we were on the top floor with an amazing view; and, at night right next to the hotel was the coolest 3D mapping show projected on the building in Plaça de Sant Jaume that we stumbled upon totally on accident which made it even better!
Since we only had 3 full days in London, we got up nice and early so we had time to see everything on our list and I am so happy to say that we did indeed do and see everything we had wished to! Here's photos from the last (very cold) two days of our trip when we wandered around the Westminster area some more, checked out Buckingham Palace, spent some time inside Westminster Abbey which was so incredibly beautiful (too bad they do not allow photos taken inside and I only snapped a few on my phone) and then walked about 5 hours all around London late into the evening! I took some photos of Anthony at the same spot Bob Dylan shot his Subterranean Homesick Blues music video, the night sky against St. Paul's Cathedral was unreal, and the Tower bridge was quite the beauty. Our very last day was spent in the rain so I didn't get too many photos on my camera but thought I'd share at least some iPhone photos we took at Abbey Road, Hyde Park, and my favorite area in London, Brick Lane. It was so incredibly hard for me not to buy anything from Beyond Retro (our 3 pieces of luggage are packed to capacity!), that store was just amazing and the whole vibe and energy in that area was just so charming.
