We still have a few more pictures left from our day at El Mercat del Born that we thought it would be fun sharing. Moreover it gives me the opportunity to ramble a little bit about our weekends in January.
Do you spot Dani’s jumper in the pics? It is a sale score of his. He usually waits until the sale season to get new clothes, I guess it’s one of the perks of being a boy; they do not have to worry a lot about pieces being sold out before the discounts begin.
Lately he is putting more thought in his buying choices, maybe some clothing style questions of our recent interview had something to do about it? ;) He has decided to buy more colorful pieces and step a little outside his comfortable zone, hence the new jumper! I love his current (as our friend Albert would say) troll hunter style (sorry I couldn’t resist that reference) but I give him the thumbs up for trying new things. We’ll see what comes of it; I will not let my nostalgic-self interfere with that, promise :)
In a fun note his jumper is in fact the first men capsule collection, called “boyfriend”, from a Spanish label called Kling which I wear quite often. The collection is intended to be both for boys & girls, and is only composed by sweaters, those that in women fashion are called boyfriend sweater, you know which ones! The collection is so new that the reality is that there are not any boys trying the clothes inside the store, so he turned a lot of heads when he was (very) resolute to the fitting room while I kept telling (very) loud: “How nice is this BOYFRIEND collection, right?” and Dani was redder than the sweater itself.
A part from some sales’ shopping we have been caught in the road to the Oscars film premieres. I don’t know if the same thing happens everywhere, but during January (and the first weeks of February) we are completely saturated with all the Oscars movies arriving to the theaters at the same time. The exception this year has to be Gravity which was a fall movie. Apart from that one we have already seen the Wolf of Wall Street and August and we are really looking forward to Her (Spike Jonze with Joaquin Phoenix sounds good) and Nebraska. Have you already seen all the nominees (or some of them)? Which ones would you recommend us most?
How are your weekends like in January? We are mostly at home & at the movies, but I am looking forward to more dates like el Mercat del Born!
This is the opposite view to the market, La Rambla del Born.
My faux fur detachable collar comes from Japan! It was in fact part of a cape coat, but I think it looks good with this retro looking green coat as well.
My mom and Dani gave me the Cambridge satchel bag for my birthday (this is 11 inches, you can find a 14 inches version here); it is personalized with a short version of my name.
It is an upside down regular diamond sweater, so it is kind of reversible if you are in the mood for a more classic look.
I swear I have more shoes than the pink moccasins, but the green and pink combo was too strong to resist :)
And finally a little sun came out, so we started to move quickly and excited to take advantage of it.
We were so excited that we grabbed the attention of some cool kiddos that were wearing costumes while skateboarding and who insisted on taking a picture with me. I am not the cool type of girl, so that’s me failing to pretend :)
