Well that may be an over the top title for this post, but somehow this is how I would really like to feel this summer.
There are lots of things in my life to rebel, personally I have been through lots of things lately, but as this blog is about the positive things of our daily lives (and to learn to appreciate them even more) I will center my rebellion in a more frivolous thing: the summer uniform, hahaha.
I think it is official that in Barcelona this year the summer uniform is a pair of shorts (very very short shorts) and a tank. They are everywhere, the big stores (name any color) and in all different type of girls. I get why it has become the IT outfit because it is comfortable and it keeps you fresh which is quite convenient for Barcelona that can be sooo incredible hot. I know that in fact this is the classic outfit of every summer, but you can tell from the stores that this year it has become more than a classic; the uniform.
I’ve been trying for months to buy a simple denim mid-length skirt, and of course my first try was the big stores (Zara, H&M,…): nothing. Not a single skirt. Finally I had to give in and realize that my craving was more fitted for a second-hand store. This is how I bought this dress for 15€ in a vintage shop in Tallers st. This is my first long dress ever because I usually feel with them like those (big) round tables with skirt, can you picture me? (sure you do) :) Then it struck me: my impulse may had something to do with months of seeing too short shorts in the stores; I just wished the opposite, the longest I had ever worn.
I think the dress looks like, a little bit, what a Harakuju girl would wear on summer (or maybe it’s more that I like to fancy that!) so I added my platform pink moccasins and a sweet strawberry fan I bought in Daikanyama during our honeymoon in Japan.
Well, thanks to Juno, Dani and to everyone reading for indulge me with this post by myself :) We will certainly come back with more family posts!
I love your positive attitude!
We must keep our spirits high :) (although on Mondays it can be so hard…. ;P)
Your outfit and athmosphere are so amazing! I miss Barcelona <333
Hugs from Istanbul
Thanks! Glad that Barcelona is somehow reflected in our pictures (the taxis in this case :P). I’ve never been in Istanbul, that is definitely something to mend.
Aw cute shoes, and the little panda-face on your dress is cool too! Such a nice outfit, I think it’s great to rebel to that summer uniform. I still keep wearing dresses like you do on hot days.
Thanks!!! :) the shoes are also very comfy (double yei).
i like your dress! it’s a summery dress!
Well, I like your version of the summer uniform better, what a gorgeous dress! I was in Barca a few years ago and would LOVE to go back someday! Lots of short shorts around here as well, I much prefer a comfy sundress 90% of the time! :)
You should definitely come back, the city changes constantly you sure will find some new nice things to do and see here!
your dress is super cuuute!! love the panda :)

so cute! I love it and a harajuku girl would definitely wear it :)
Oh!! Thanks Fiona!!! That feels so good :)
Sweet and summery-the perfect combination. I forgot all about paper fans, way to bring them back! ;)
Lovely outfit, the panda detail makes it even more awesome!
Loving your blog name (maybe I secretly just like everything cat-related ;p)
Thanks! The panda pin is my favorite thing of the outfit :) I also love your blog name :P, cats everywhere please! (crazy cat lady talking)
I think you look adorable! Your bubblegum-pink shoes are adorable!
Lovely ;) Can’t wait to the upcoming Dani’s dark side post! (he he…)
I know, he is always better in pictures than me :P
Oh my goodness- I don’t think this outfit could get any cuter! The fan is awesome (also, honeymoon in Japan? Perfection) and I love the dress! Any main stream stores? Totally overrated! Love your style, keep the pictures coming!
Thanks for your sweet comment! :) I couldn’t agree more with Japan = Perfection hahahaha, We still miss it so much.

So cute! That dress looks just darling on you. I used to wear short-shorts every summer but as I get older I find myself naturally wanting to try fun different lengths.
It’s a very pretty dress indeed :)
That dress is so lovely, and so are those shoes!
