Ah, Barcelona. A couple weeks ago, I went to Barcelona with my mom and sister and we had the best time. I have Latin roots and am working on becoming fluent in Spanish, so this was the perfect Eurotrip for me to take with my family. We stayed in Barcelona 2 nights, then went to Nice, then came back to Barcelona. The city is so alive with culture, even during the winter. It was a little chilly there, but very beautiful.
One of my favorite things about Barcelona is the laid-back vibes. It is a city for sure, but people really appreciate life there. They take the time to live it. If you’re at dinner for under two hours, you’re doing it wrong. In fact, they don’t even bring the check to your table. They let you chill for as long as you want and then you check out at the front when you’re ready to leave.
For one of our strolling around days, I wore this striped dress (on sale with code INTHEFAM!) and flat back booties (similar). I added the vest for some warmth. It was in the high 50s this day! I was a little cold, but I had to look good, ya feel me? Plus I totally didn’t pack for the weather, ha! I just got this fringe mini bucket bag and I totally love it! It can hold so so much and it’s on sale right now – score!
I took these photos by the port. I was surprised by how pretty it was there. The intricate, classic architecture next to the water was a very beautiful sight.
I hope to go back sometime soon…maybe when it’s warmer!
Have you ever been to Barcelona?
