in sitges

Last Saturday when Kallie was here we took a little daytrip to Sitges just down the coast from Barcelona. We were all kind of the walking wounded from being up until 4am the night before, and I was practically comatose from cold meds as usual (this is seriously the winter of the constant drip for me; not pictured: my Kleenex) but we still had fun wandering the sunset beach of pretty Sitges. I don't think these photos are very representative of the town, which in summer is a Mediterranean paradise (if you can ignore the throngs of people) of azure sky and stark white buildings, but the tawny and later pink evening light was certainly lovely.

We ended up dressing kind of the same. I always seem to do that when there's another girl around to imitate! I wasn't initially very excited with my look (nor with having my fluorescent nose documented for posterity) but it's a good, basic, no-brainer outfit for me with a bunch of my favourite pieces.

I still think it's so fun that you two were able to meet. Did anyone mistake you for sisters?

...ye actually do look a little alike!! I've loved both yours and Kallie's posts of your holiday together! Both your blogs are what I consider the thinking woman's (life)style blogs :) PS: Your nose looks perfectly porcelain!!

Kallie's photo of the pink sea and sky is awesome! I see the similarity in the outfits--the sweater and the skirt, but your scarf was an excellent touch with the floral skirt.

@Hattitude: Me too! Definitely a Canadian institution!

How lovely to get an off-season glimpse of Sitges. You both look so relaxed (in spite of your cold).
I read your post below - Poster of a Girl - with great interest too. You're right and I certainly paused to reflect.
On International women's day I found myself dwelling on lots of aspects celebrating women's achievements worldwide. However, my thoughts kept returning to those women for whom expectations are so low that if a firstborn child is a girl, the shame is so great that a woman's husband or his family can cast her out.

Both your outfits are beautiful! I love simple looks, ones that you feel comfortable in and don't have to keep re-arranging! The pictures are stunning. It looks like such an amazing place :)
