Hope you’re all having a fabulous week and are all set for the upcoming holidays. I love winter and the smell of crisp leaves and hot coco and meeting family. But, along with the holidays comes the pressure of choosing a good holiday outfit. I will be posting a couple of holiday outfits. This is my first one in the series. A simple and fun outfit with the appropriate amount of sparkle added to it.
How are you all doing? I have already begun planning my next trip and needless to say i’m super excited about it. I will be posting about it soon – meanwhile keep reading :).
Today I am posting about this comfy chic feminine maxi dress from The Limited. I love wearing maxi’s on my trips as I find them comfortable and stylish. The best part about this maxi is that you don’t even need to iron it. So perfect for those days where you’re in a rush. I wore this on my trip to Granada, Spain while visiting the Alhambra and I think the pictures came out beautifully with the background.
Hope you all had a great week. So black is one of my fav colors and the main reason is cause it makes me look thin. lol. I was so happy I found this maxi. I love how open and airy it is and looks perfect for summer. Before I talk about this look, I had even styled a black jumpsuit for visiting the Tabacon hot springs in Costa Rica. You can see the look here.
I wore this maxi on my trip to Seville, Spain and it was perfect for the hot weather. All the pictures here are taken either in the Santa Cruz neighborhood or the Alcazar of Seville. You can read my full travel post here.
How have you been? So this is my last post in my series of travel posts on Spain. You can read my last 3 posts on Madrid, Seville and Granada by clicking on the links in case you missed them. So my last stop on my trip was Barcelona and it was literally like saving the best for the last. Barcelona was a world of its own. A city overflowing with art and beautiful buildings and full of life and energy, it was really hard to say adios and fly back to San Francisco. There is so much to do here, I am at a loss where to start. This is the best I could do in 3 days to scratch the surface of this vibrant city.
Hope you enjoyed reading my last 2 posts on Madrid and Seville. If you are planning a trip to Spain I would say you read those posts first as they give you an introduction to Spain. Anyhow, after reluctantly leaving Seville to head to Granada, I finally made my way to this city. Granada was an interesting mixture of Moorish and Spanish architecture and needless to say the main reason for me to visit the city was the Alhambra. However, Granada did pleasantly surprise me. There was a lot more to the city than the Alhambra and it looked like a scene out of the Arabian nights. I took a taxi to get to our hotel and it costed about 30 €.
Hope you enjoyed reading my blog post on “Madrid in 2 days” last week. So from Madrid, I headed down south towards the very beautiful city of Seville (pronounced Seviya). Seville was everything Madrid wasn’t. It’s known as the “Frying Pan” of Spain and is located in the Andalusian region. I loved this place as it gave me the actual flavor of Spain that Madrid lacked. The weather was nice and warm (can get really hot in summer), the streets and buildings were beautiful, the sangria strong and the tapas hot. If you want to see a Flamenco show in Spain – I would highly suggest you do so in the South. One of the mistakes I made was not spending enough time in Seville. I would highly suggest you spend at-least 2 days here. But if you were on a time crunch like me, follow my itinerary below:
Madrid is Spain’s central capital. It’s a cosmopolitan city full of plaza’s, museums, fun places to eat and a buzzing nightlife. I went to Spain couple of months back and Madrid was my first stop during the trip and it definitely dint disappoint. Since I just had 2 days, I was constantly on the move to cover all the attractions in the city under a time crunch. Feel free to spread this over 3 days if you have more time to visit the city.
- Hello Fellow Travelers,Hope you’re all being fabulous and have some fun travel plans for Summer. I recently visited Spain and I had the opportunity to stay at Hotel Europark and collaborate with them. I really had a great time there and if you’re traveling to Barcelona I highly suggest you stay with them. The staff of Europark was really helpful. We were greeted very nicely the entire time, they helped us plan our visits to various parts of the city, explained routes to us on a map and even helped us understand train timings. Upon checkout (which was at a very un-even hour) we were given a packed breakfast to eat at the airport. Such a sweet gesture 🙂
