mas que nada

Photobucket

So, (almost) everyone guessed correctly that I was in Germany... though the vote for the Canary Islands was pretty random! Haha. Anyway, I was in Bonn, which is a pretty quiet little city near Cologne, for almost a week, and now I'm back in London, purged of my essays, and trying to figure out what I'm doing with my thesis. THe fun never ends. Nor does the out-of-sequence fun on the blog. ; )

This was just an outfit I wore while essay writing one day in Barcelona. In all my Barcelona pictures it looks like it was sunny, but actually it kept up with the Easter tradition of being pretty chilly, blustery, and occasionally raining. So this was just something comfortable and reasonably warm. You can't be a fashion plate every day, but this is better than nothing.

The location is in Parc Joan Miró, which also appeared, with some explanation in this post. I've got to try to get to the Miró exhibit at the Tate this month!

I love the little bow! Super cute outfit! It goes so well with the statues!
Did you like Bonn? I've never been there...I do love Barcelona though!

Julia Topaz said...

I am so envious of your lifestyle! And you always look perfect!
I actually like how quotidian (thought it's not really enormously quotidian) this outfit is- it's very relateable and simple, in a classic way.

Xavi said...

I said Canary Islands because was shiny...
An easy conclusion, I know. :)

Joan Miró was a good artist. Of course, when you see a Joan Miró picture, you identify It as a "Joan Miró". But I have to recognize that is not my favourite. I prefer Eduardo Chillida works. Chillida was a Miró's friend.

Oh my god, my horrible english... :( every day worst!!

Best line "You can't be a fashion plate every day" and one does not have to be. I am going to use cliche... Inner beauty is more important :)))

Carrie said...

So, if you were apartment hunting, are you making Bonn your new home for a while? And yes, I do love your hair in these photos, but it really doesn't matter if you tell us how you did it because my hair wouldn't ever do it no matter what I tried. ;-) Have fun with your thesis (if that's possible).

You look so gorgeous!! I love these photos. You have such an old fashioned look here. That sweater is absolutely adorable and I love the little bow peaking out! Umm i'm never even been out of the country haha. I know you're quite jealous of my spontaneous and adventurous lifestyle. Please try not to be =p

Love the little blue bow! yes! I made arrangements to the picture of the Cathedral in Flickr! the best part is that you can save it with the same quality and if you want to print it, it just looks fantastic! your red pants are so beautiful!

sparkle is a color (Katrina) said...

I love this outfit because I am obsessed with light blue and red together. One of my favorite color combos!

Closet Fashionista said...

Haha yea, I overthink everything...my Marc Jacobs dresses probably would be fine, but since they're jersey it feels a bit too casual...I dunno XD Just watch, I'll end up wearing one of them anyway after all this searching

Annebeth said...

this outfit is just adorable, loving the stripes and the red pants. Ooh germany, that means you're pretty close to me in Belgium! :D

Annebeth said...

Jennyboo said...

This is just the perfect outfit. The little bow at the bottom of your sweater is the sweetest addition. And yes for red pants! I need some more colorful denim. Have fun on your adventures! xx

the many places you travel to offer perfect backdrops for your style. the colours just go so well with your outfit. the red jeans are amazing and the sweater is incredible with it.

Virginie's Cinema said...

These pictures are gorgeous Emily! I love how you travel so much, it's definitely inspiring (and a feast for our eyes, we never get tired of your Barcelona, Germany, London... and Canary Island pics!!).

God luck on your essays, I'm sure you'll figure out your thesis soon and I hope you get a nice Summer break from school!
