embroidery

Just dropping in quickly...I'm currently about to be in transit, exhausted from pounding the pavement all day, and can't think of much to say. I wore this outfit on an evening walk on a rare nice evening, which turned into an impromptu dinner of weißwurste, potato salad, and of course some German beer. What am I going to do without those things, and yoghurt ice cream?

You look super pretty:) I love the embroidered details on the blouse. And the German food makes me wish I wasn't vegetarian:( hehe..

Closet Fashionista said...

Lo siento mucho, pero lo único malo que debo decir acerca de esta entrada es ¿qué es esa comida? :S de verdad no me apetece en lo absoluto jajaja y para que algo no me parezca apetitoso de verdad es extraño ;)

Por otra parte (una vez más) adoro tus fotos, los colores de tu camiseta son bellísimos.

nos vemos linda :)

Such a pretty top...I love the teaser detail on the front and the splash of embroidery on the back. I would feel really sorry for you leaving Germany if you weren't returning to the lovely Barcelona :)

@deppa: lo siento, hehe, a veces me olvido que la comida no siempre parece tan buena como es! Son salchichas blancas, basicamente, que son típicas de alemania, con una salsa un poco como mostaza pero más dulce, y una ensalada hecha de patatas, mayonesa, y pepinillo...principalmente! Te aseguro que todo es muy delicioso!

Marisa Noelle said...

Looks like lost of yummy German goodness going on there:) Your blouse & skirt along with the red shoes and quite awesome headscarf is one of my favorites to date! Just completely loving your whole ensemble. Definitely saving it to my inspiration files:) Safe travels!!

Virginie's Cinema said...

Seriously, I thin it's about ime I comment about how good Albert is at taking your photo! They are always so so lovely :)

I was thinking too how I should comment on how much I love all the food pictures you always include!

I love the embroidery and the hair deco, we be head scarves sisters.

Talk about an unusual top and I particularly love how the design is inverted. :)

On another note Torontonians are the worst about preserving their history. Did you know the country's original parliament building lies under a parking lot at the intersection of Front & Parliament?

Sewon said...

You're adorable and I love the top + navy skirt. xx

Natalie Suarez said...

Monique said...

Emily you look lovely. I'm in love with that top! What a delicious dinner! Spontaneous/impromptu dinners are so much fun!

Louise said...

This may be one of my favourite ensembles of yours! I love the simple concept and silhouettes made interesting and even prettier by the scarf on your head and the details on the back of your blouse...I love the colours too!
And uh oh...this vegetarian is not looking forward to the delights of German cuisine on my move to Bavaria!

Nana said...

The top is super cute!!! :)

Rachel, Cold Knees said...

beautiful location! Love the vintage scarf in your hair, and the back of the top! I've never been to Desigual before.. xx

You're SO beautiful. x hivenn

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark said...

It looks so beautiful there and I love your top.
You should come to NY again. We'll Biergarten it up! I'm sure I can find you some yoghurt ice cream (ill even find you some spelled in that funny non-american way ;))

HazelandMare said...

I love the embroidered detail on the top! And your scarf- oh so pretty! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Natasha said...

I just love the touch of color. :) And I think that you should go for it and wear even more color, not just a touch :)

jess said...

I love the embroidery on the top.

eagle-eye-cherry said...

Hope one day to see Germany, I heard that it have a lot of beautiful places

freed mode said...

j'aime beaucoup ta tenu jupe marine et haut blanc fleuri très jolie.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

@Natasha: Wearing colour is not generally my problem... this outfit is pretty restrained for me! ; )

@Kallie: That sounds like a challenge I'm up for!

Jennyboo said...

I am such a sucker for embroidery. There is something about the intricate detailing on an embroidered shirt that makes me want to start a mini collection of similar items. And those sausages look quite yummy!

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

You've really found the recipe for the perfect summer outfit with this. Speaking of summer, I'm glad it returned in such a way that you didn't have to look into fall for wardrobe inspiration. The embroidery on your tunic is really lovely, btw.

Closet Fashionista said...

Yea, the Splendid and H&M are my favorites too, haha...stupid expensive pieces! (well, not the H&M)

whitemaskgirl said...

An adorable outfit. You seem so good to take the surroundings into how you look, and I am jealous on your Desigual top. Mum, my mother in law and me are all a little crazy about that brand, so every time I see their clothing my heart beats a little faster.

Dresses for Dinner said...

I love the headscarf/headband it's so PERFECT.

Ashley said...

I'm digging on your sandals, your headscarf, your background, and those things on your plate UNTIL I realized that they were not breadsticks. Not so big on the wurst. But I still like you!

Love these pics! The light is so beautiful. It sounds like you're enjoying Germany besides the weather of course.

SOJOURNED IN STYLE said...

Terri said...

This is a really interesting top.

Raquel said...

Again, as much as I thin desigual is too much, you come and make me question myself ;) You look very adorable!
