Don’t you just love those lazy days when the sun is shining bright? I know I do. I was heading over to my book editing job after house sitting my friend. Even though I wasn’t dressed to the nines per se, I still felt like a good old around the way girl. Rocking my white tee, ripped black jeans, and fresh white kicks, I must say all the mattered was my smile. Do you agree?

You guys, the level of art on the walls in Barcelona is insane! I am going to have at least 5 or 6 different posts strictly dedicated to the walls and my pink dress. I went in a 2 block radius and got a majority of the photos. Please, bare with me. Yet, in my defense, isn’t that what this blog is all about…finding the beauty in everyday locations and places? I think so. I hope my posts continue to inspire you to get out there and find cool walls, cracks and crevices no matter where you are and find the beauty in them. After all, we are all artists in our own rightful way. Once again, this simple pink dress makes for the perfect outfit concerning the beautiful background. I’m in love and I never thought I would ever set foot in Barcelona again after catching food poisoning back in 2011…yes I held a mini grudge. What can I say, ya girl likes to eat. ha.
Upon first look, this dress probably looks like it’s uncomfortable because it’s practically spray painted to my body. In fact, it is one of the most comfortable dresses I wore this summer. Perfect for vacations, it’s quick, easy, and simple. Not only that, but it was ridiculously cheap from H&M. I love to wear dresses in the summer because they are so quick to put on and go. You can pair them with sandals or sneakers, which is a double bonus. I chose this pink color because I wanted to keep things light. Pink symbolizes love and I was in love with the moment and whole experience of being in Barcelona.
This isn’t the first time I have been to Barcelona. Oh no, in fact I had gone there once before many moons ago. I had eaten something prepared not quite right and got what the locals call ” la tourista”, or what I like to call food poisoning. It wasn’t fun and I hated every moment of that experience. Which also lead me to hate Barcelona. I took it that I couldn’t eat there and therefore I would starve in said place.
Not one to stay angry for long, I decided to give the place a second chance. Boy, am I glad that I did! I ate good food and had an amazing time on the beach, just soaking up the sun! I also found some amazing graffiti, as you can very well see. I have many more shots to come, so keep your eyes peeled for them. In the meantime, enjoy me frolicking along the Catalonian streets in my black and white striped dress against the black and white hands. Besitos!
