Hopeless wanderer

 #teenvogue // ASOS dress, ZARA heels, A.P.C bag and TOPSHOP sunglasses

It seems bizarre that when the sun comes out, it brings with it a sudden urge to ditch color and just float around in all white like a cloud with legs. What is also odd is that when you've been blogging for 4+ years, you generally begin to associate clothing with locations. As soon as I bought this dress, I wanted to wear it out here in the woods. Weird right? It works in the same way that you can't wait to wear a bikini to the beach or new trainers running (just kidding, who get's excited about running? le gross). I guess it's something that becomes a habit when you're always scouting locations for outfit photos and trying to create some sort of mental image about what outfit would suit what background. I also couldn't wait to wear this dress because it looks like a a tablecloth it reminds of Spain and I just found out I'm off to Barcelona for a weekend in September. Having never been I'm just a lil' bit excited and have pretty much spent all morning looking at tips on how not to get pick-pocketed because I obviously want to take my camera everywhere with me.
The best tip I've found so far is dress like a local, so I better get started on looking vaguely Spanish...which will probably never happen.

  2. The dress is gorgeous! I'm from Spain but I have only been in Barcelona once, for a school trip. I suggest that you have your bag in front of you and also if you bring one with a zipper, so much better! and take care if you are going to the beach and you leave the bag on the towel because that will be the last time you will see it... I think that's all! Have fun! ^^

  4. Hmm...not sure if my comment actually posted, so I apologize for the repeat (if that's the case).

    You can dress like a local to avoid the pickpockets (and look super cute doing it, which let's face it - is the totally better option) or you can just dress like a total slob-tourist and hold on to your stuff REALLY tight! (which is what I did in barcelona after studying abroad, haha) I would recommend your suggestion over mine. ;)

    LOVE the dress, by the way! It's beautiful!

  7. I feel the same way... summer makes me want to associate my outfits with locations. Like, "i bought this scarf because i want to tie it around my head for a picnic" sort of situations.
    Or, "I'll dance next to a fountain in this tie dye maxi skirt". Love the dress and the post!!!

  8. i have to tell you: your problem it's not your clothes or the way you dress, well. Th problem it's you're blonde, a true danish blonde girl and spanish women, you know, they have darkest hair ever.
    I'm not spanish, i'm italian but mediterraneans looks all the same...
    Kisses!

    p.s. just kidding, obviusly. And I love your hair too!

  35. haha, don't worry about the pick pockets too much! i've just spent a week in barcelona and if you leave your bag closed and have your camera around your neck/shoulder, you'll be fine.
    definitely go to the MAC BA (the museum of modern art), i loved it!

  36. Totally agree with the whole location/ dress thing :-) In fact I've devoted my travel blog (Bruised Passports) to finding locations that suit dresses - so far I've shot outfit posts in 37 countries :-) Take a look, think you'll enjoy it. www.bruisedpassports.com
