Feeling full of color

Feeling full of color - The cat, you and us

Good Monday! Mid-January already, time really flies! Today we have ready a full-color outfit post that it’s very dear to me. You know that we rarely share outfit sessions where I am all alone on it, but this time it’s for completely justified reason: the dress I’m wearing was a birthday present!

My Little Mermaid pin from Disneyland Paris! I think the scales on her tail are a perfect match to the scalloped top of the dress.

And some maybe would think? Birthday? Did I miss any post? Well, probably not. My birthday was on September, but I’ve been trying to find the most perfect location (& weather) for the dress. After considering lots of places in Barcelona, and trying to find a similar 60s vibe that will go with the dress I realized that our city does not have lots of places that match with the 60s American imaginario that I was looking for. However, when I think about that time I think of color, full color, technicolor so I moved to the most colorful area to make the honours to the outfit.

By chance I chose the word “feeling” for the post, because I liked to express how I felt opening the birthday parcel that came from Australia (tuut tuut), but then I saw how a secret meaning was also in there: Fee…ling, because the dearest to our hearts Fiona (Fee) Harding was the lovely lady behind the present! sorry gal for the (bad) pun :)

Aren’t the drops on the bottom part of the dress the most wonderful detail?

I think this dress will be my lucky charm this year, the powerful color puts me instantly in a better mood which I have no doubts will give me the energy to move forward. Thanks Fee again and again, you’re all love & an inspiration!

How about all of you? What are your plans for this year wardrobe? Do you like to add color or are you more into a minimalist streak?

      Aw, thanks! it was love at first sight when I saw the little Ariel pin on the Pirates of the Caribbean store :)

  3. Lovely pictures! Love the vibrant colors :D
    That little mermaid pin is so cute :3 I’m just planning to keep it basic mixed with some eye catchers/ statement pieces. Adding more color to my wardrobe will be necessary too, because almost everything I own is black, white and grey now :c

      Thanks Jessy!! I definitely need to add more neutrals instead :)

    This is such a great dress! I also love the Little Mermaid pin that you’ve paired with it. And the way your red matches your cardigan and your nails! And the Coke! There’s just so much to love about these pictures!

    I love wearing colours! It’s my favorite and I also love mixing colours and patterns. I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to incorporate a some neutral pieces into my wardrobe though – because it’s always when you need them that you don’t have them, right?

    Have a great week!!

    xx Kathryn

      ♥ thanks Kathryn! I totally relate about neutrals, I’m trying to incorporate a couple pieces like a new plain skirt to go with my colorful/patterned sweaters :)

    Ah you’re so cute and I love your style and outfits. I am big and fancy dreams of hopefully sewing some of my own clothes over the summer. I have been looking at some Japanese sewings and fabrics and I hope to learn fast enough to maybe be able to sew a shirt or skirt or dress. just minimal and made in linen or cotton. :)

      Ahhh Japanese patterns and fabrics! I bet they would turn great and perfect for summer, I love the minimal shapes in Japanese dresses.

    I love how you combine with red and green! And very nice birthday gift as well. It’s my favorite color combine :) I like the way how you put some red color on your cheeks too, so cute :)
    also it’s nice to see your outfit post in front of some BCN style of backdrops. if your blog was new to me and I didn’t know where you’re from, I would definitely say that it’s taken in Barcelona :))

      Hahaha, I’m a little elf at heart, I can’t resist green and red together, no matter the shade of them :) Aw, how glad I am that Barcelona is recognizable through our pictures! :) although sometimes is not easy at all to take pictures in such a (usually) crowded city I am really thankful for all the pretty places and light it offers.

    Quin vestit més xulo! M’agrada molt aquest verd anys 60, i combinat en vermell et queda rebé! L’entorn de la foto és també molt encertat, aviat podreu editar una guia dels racons me BCN amb més encant ;-) Jo ja tinc ganes de deixar enrere els colors grisos de l’hivern…

      Merci guapa pels comentaris, em fa molta ilu!! Doncs de mica en mica sí que ens agradaria penjar alguna guia de la ciutat, perque ara mateix només tenim un degoteig de posts, però estaria bé tenir-ne un amb mapa i un resum de tot plegat :) Quines ganes de que faci més bon temps, ehh! Petó enorme a la family!

    awww yay!!! So much to like about this the pun, the red colour pairing the brooch *goes crazy with happiness* You look so so cute!!! *dances in happy circles* I also think you picked the perfect location too and how neat to get to extend your birthday too :P

      ♥ ♥ thanks Fee for your sweetness, it lifts me up to the bright sky :) – I’m a cheesy one, can’t help it!

    You look absolutely GORGEOUS c:
    Great match up with the red cardigan

    That 60′ themed restaurant sounds

      *blush* thanks cutie! A red cardigan is always a good choice :)

    That’s funny that you associate 60’s mod style with US because to me it is a very British/European aesthetic. I love your new dress, the scallops and skirt details are so sweet!

      So right! I also associate it to Britain, but I guess somehow my imaginario tends to go the farthest place possible ;) ♥
