Strolling around Gothic Quarter in Barcelona

THE CITY OF LIFE

One of the very first blog posts on Glam&Glitter are exactly from Barcelona. Probably because this city has always been my absolute favourite, and even before I became a world traveler, I know it had something special for me. I believe that cities have energy, and that regardless of their beauty some cities attract us more and some less. I was about 12 years old when I visited Barcelona for the first time, and I knew it was a city I will visit again and again.

I went on a few family holidays back then, but came to Barcelona as an adult at the age of 20. I stayed a whole month exploring the different quarters, making friends, studying Gaudi and adoring the language, Since then I kept coming back every single year and now I can say that I am somewhat a Barcelona connoisseur.

Besides all the incredible Gaudi spots, I have to add that Gothic Quarter is my favourite place in the city. I love getting lost in the narrow streets, buying candy from the small shops in the side streets and taking photos with almost every creepy gothic sculpture I can see – just for my own collection. I love the Barcelona Cathedral and all the streets around it. There is truly a special energy hiding in these corners of the city.

In this post you can see a transitional outfits post and few new items in my wardrobe.So let’s discuss the styling in more details.

There must be a reason why I keep coming back. Over and over again to Barcelona.

THE OUTFIT

I was browsing luxury sites when I saw a gorgeous pair by Jimmy Choo and then wandered off to check out all the new season shoes on all my favourite sites. Jimmy Choo always does so well, but this autumn got me really excited as I already got myself few gorgeous pairs of boots, including these , which are perfect for this period, because they aren’t too closed, but are still ankle boots right? There are so many cool options this season , including some over the knee babies, which i will have to come back to later.

I decided to keep the look relatively casual because after all I wanted to do sight seeing, so denim was the best option. I own a variety of denim skirts in my wardrobe, but believe that Re Done is doing a great job when it comes to denim, and actually put this one on without too much thinking. I also tucked in an extremely oversized white shirt, which I unbuttoned, and styled as off the shoulder top. I love how it booked underneath the skirt, and even put on a Dior bralette, just to reveal the strap as the shirt falls of the shoulder.

Like I told you my initial thought  was that I will buy just a pair of sunglasses, and that is when I saw this huge collection of Celine sunnies they have on Farfetch I already own quite a few pairs of Farfetch , and that is because I find them so cool and flattering. What do you think about this style on me?

I put my hair up, filled my new Chanel Deauville Tote with about million essentials I normally carry when travelling and headed out. I am so happy I finally found this Chanel tote, as it’s proving to be really useful since not only it fits everything I need (including my laptop), but it’s also utterly stunning. What do you guys think?
