Striped in Barcelona

31st May 2016

Greetings from Barcelona! I love rocking red, white and blue for Memorial Day, even from abroad.

I’ve sailed off through the Mediterranean with Princess Cruises, first stop? Spain! After arriving at the airport in Barcelona, we checked into our hotel in Sitges for one night. We spent half of the first day exploring that charming little town in Spain (see more here) and the second half in the city of Barcelona, only a short ride away!Since I’ll be spending the next week or so at sea, I decided to dress the part with this nod to the nautical. I love the oversized sleeves on this tee, it’s just SO comfortable and the perfect travel top! I actually wore most of this outfit (minus the sneakers) on my flight home from San Francisco earlier last week (don’t judge me) and was crazy comfortable.It’s no secret that I’m short, and somewhat stout, so an oversized tee just doesn’t quite do it for me. So to tailor this look to my body, I tucked the top into my favorite high waisted jeans to help create a shape all while keeping the look comfy and casual.

This top is fun, but the real star of this show has to be a tie between my striped tote and kiss me sneakers! I found these cuties when I was shopping for this trip and fell in love instantly. They reminded me of the sneakers I designed for Keds last year, but in a fun summer style! I love that these sneakers can elevate any look enough to dress up jeans and a tee or they even pair perfectly with a shirt dress and a statement bag! Speaking of statements, I love the look of this larger than life tote and the serious drama it brings to the outfit. Anything oversized is an automatic attention grabber, so just make sure you pick pieces that draw the eye for the right reason, like this simple statement tote! It’s also great for carrying around a camera, sunscreen, your hat (when things get windy) and any other tourist toys you’re bringing on your trip!

From Barcelona, we boarded with Princess Cruises and set sale off on an Mediterranean adventure! I can’t wait to get started and explore this side of the world all from the comfort of my cabin room! As a blogger, packing (and unpacking) across Europe sounds like the worst thing ever – so really seeing everything from a floating hotel is the best way to Travel in style! SO without any further ado, lets kick of this Princess party and start sailing!

    You are so cute I always look forward to your posts! I think because your style is so happy and fun it makes me gravitate towards your outfits! Loving the addition of the stripped shirt. I think navy and white stripes are perfect for the spring and summer seasons because it is so nautical. I also love the fact that you styled your look with a great pair of high waisted jeans and those cute sneakers with the red lips on the front. Loving this look!
