Baiona…

IMAG0320

So as I mentioned, I’m in Spain now until September (lucky me eh)! We’ve rented out a huge and beautiful house overlooking the sea in Northern Spain, in Galicia. It’s still pretty chilly here, but mind-blowingly beautiful. I’ve already taken at least 300 photos, and I haven’t even left the house that much. The best ones I hope to show you in upcoming posts, if not they’ll all be on my flikr so have a look if you feel like you’re missing out…

On our second night here we decided to take ourselves down to the little town of Baiona. This is one of the first places in Spain to hear the news of Columbus’ discovery of the New World and is full of history, but at the same time glamorous and Ritzy. The walk along the harbour stretches from the Parador (old monastery-come-hotel type thing, below) to the edge of the town.

My Dad (who is for all intents and purposes, a Spanish hombre) says that this time of evening when the Golden Hour hits Spain, the glamorous inhabitants take to the street for “el Paseo“, where they walk along the promenade to show off, socialise, and perhaps take a drink or two before returning to their homes for dinner or into the city for a paella with friends…

In honour of its glamorous reputation I decided trainers and Levi’s were not going to be acceptable in Baiona. I plaited my hair, threw on some interesting textures in simple colours and a pile of plain silver jewellery just in case… (mostly on my ears..)

I bought this t-shirt in London the other day in a size 16 because I wanted to go for an oversized look. I feel I am forever searching for the perfect oversized tee.. This one is just the right length, but I might take the sleeves in a bit just to make it look more fitted. It has cool mesh-y bits which I love at the moment, and looks great with huge bright necklaces or with another load of pure white..

I also decided to employ my brother as photographer for this post, he kept making me or himself giggle so there’s now an unfortunate pile of totally unusable photos! I may have to do an out-take post. But check me out taking photos in public where people are! Bumble is going places people!!

All in all, we had a lovely evening, and happened to stumble across a pretty epic sunset on the way home..

Shirt and denim

For my first proper post, I thought I’d do something quite simple. This is my absolute failsafe outfit: it’s comfy, can be easily customised with a mix up of shoes and accessories and it’s easy as pie!

It’s like Macdonalds: it’s mostly clean, and I always know what I’m getting.

Also, I reckon, on a hot day in the sunshine, there’s nothing sexier than a cool shirt and some high-waisted denim. Cue some actual sunshine, a bowl full o’ strawberries and Mr Darcy type character and the image is complete! Apologies to those who do not share my wild imagination…. (I’ll stop now…)

Jeans: Asos // Shirt: H&M // Bralet (underneath): Topshop (old)

Bought these jeans from asos, and pretty much have not stopped wearing them. They’re super soft and also, a revelation for me, haven’t stretched a bit! Which means they’re likely to be my failsafe for a good while longer…. 🙂
