How is spring going for you so far? I have seen snowy pictures from New York and other US cities illustrating that first day of spring, quite not the image I had in mind when longing for the new season to come. Specially when I’ve shyly started to add a few new pieces to my spring/summer wardrobe and I’m more than ready to wear them right away. Do you also feel the urge to wear that new piece almost right after you are running out of the store? When I’m in the fitting room I already imagine how I will wear it, therefore the next day I’m ready to try that outfit to see if it works in real life. Sometimes it really doesn’t, but that’s also fine because it gives you more play time to hunt through your closet for another one – positive thinking!
A few weekends ago a new edition of one of my favorite clothing markets took place in Barcelona: the “Susi sweet dress” was back and I was there the first day to grab a piece. I end up buying two skirts (10€ each which is a steal, right?), one t-shirt and a fancy pastel blue dress, which I hope will soon be able to show them to you! That was Friday and Saturday (I went twice, don’t judge me!) therefore on Sunday I knew I had to wear one of them for our “mom is here”-walking-around date. I was lucky because, unlike what has happened this last weekend, it was warm enough to wear the springy skirt (with tights though!) and a short sleeve t-shirt (with my warmest cardigan trick!).
In case you were wondering, pictures were taken at Parc de la Ciutadella, a good place to visit if you ever come to Barcelona but want to forget about the city for a while. The park is near el Born and Barceloneta districts, both a must, which is extra convenient!
Have you already transitioned to your spring wardrobe? Do you have any tricks to combine both? Mine would be tights (even two layers of them) – that’s an easy one, I know. I always find the shoes the hardest part, booties do scream winter but still too cold for sandals or even sneakers?
