Barcelona - my photo diary

We've just returned from a couple of days in Barcelona.  Apart from a buying appointment with Malahierba (more about this next week) I decided to share some photos on the rest of our time in Barcelona...
We spotted these cool trixi cabs near the cathedral, a different way to see the sights and get around the city

Camp Nou - "Mes que un club" - home to Barcelona FC it has been 20 years since I last visited and there are a few more trophies to polish now!  It's definitely worth a visit especially for football fans (we spent over 4 hours here)

Loved this window display in Cerabella candle shop in the gothic quarter

Time for a little refreshment!
Mojito time
but not enough for me to be brave enough yet to do this cable car ride yet (maybe one day)
We checked out this years Drap-Art exhibition at the Arenas shopping centre featuring some creative works of art made from recycled materials.  I particularly loved these recycled robots

Bright Whites - How to Wear

White is the perfect summer go-to tone due to its lightness and elegance. This SS15 designer's collections featured more of a casual silhouette giving off an effortless, relaxed vibe. We love how Bora Aksu incorporated crochet into his collection combining it with lightweight fabrics for a fresh update of the all white outfit. 

We love the all white everything look - minimal but sophisticated. 

Wear this trend now by pairing a white sheer panelled t shirt with a white midi skirt for a sleek finish. 

 Or try a classic white shirt with a pair of jeans and contrasting pair of heels.

3 SS15 Trends To Wear Now

 MESH 

With many collections featuring cut outs with mesh overlay we couldn't forget this trend which is already proving to be very popular with celebrities and fashion bloggers. 

HOW TO WEAR : We aren't all daring enough to opt for all sheer everything so pair your sheer items with opaques for an on trend but elegant look. We recommend sheer panel t shirts with wide leg pants and heeled sandals. 

TURQUOISE 

 

All of us are dreaming of being on a white sand beach with turquoise waters... Far away from the grey UK weather. However for now we may have to settle for gorgeous shades of blue and turquoise in our wardrobe which have been spotted several times during fashion week for Ss15 including Elie Saab's beautiful collection at PFW featuring aquamarine and jewel toned blues featured above.

HOW TO WEAR : Mix your blue palette with white to create a beautiful summery contrast. Add jewel tones to add depth and glamour.

GRAPHIC MONOCHROME

The classic monochrome was a sure winner this SS15 incorporated into graphic prints to create a new and exciting update. Holly Fulton's intricate designs were super wearable with a relaxed slightly oversized feel for a casual but stylish look. Monochrome is here to stay.

HOW TO WEAR : Monochrome is a great trend as its so easy to wear and isn't too intimidating. With the help of monochrome you can look perfectly polished with minimum effort. Pair a printed black t shirt with some jeans and heeled black ankle boots.
