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!

      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.

  5. 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! :)

    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.
