During my recent vacation in Portugal I took a day trip to Seville Spain. When I was planning the trip and searching for places to visit Seville came up and I was immediately sold on the idea. Located only about 2 hours from Faro it made perfect sense to go and the driving there and back was so worth it.
I am not going into a deep explanation of how beautiful the city is, but I will tell you that this is one of the most aesthetically fulfilling places I have ever seen. Of course one day is not even close to seeing everything, but is enough to have a real feel of the spirit and enjoy some of the most important landmarks.
I started with the Metropol Parasol, which is the largest wooden structure in the world and from there walked through the old town Barrio Santa Cruz. Barrio Santa Cruz is everything you will imagine an old European town looks like, narrow streets (in some cases so narrow you can touch the buildings on both sides) centuries old buildings with exquisite design and tile work. Small stores, restaurants and cafes are present in almost every corner and is easy to take a break or have a bite and hide from the sun. From there I walked all the way to the Parque de Maria Luisa and Plaza de Espana, the ultimate highlight of the trip. Stunningly beautiful, the place is a great example of Spanish architecture and art work and an absolute must see for everyone.
I know I know this is a fashion blog not a travel blog and I am supposed to talk about my outfit. I did envision something with an embroidery for this trip and then remembered I already have the perfect dress in my closet. I got it from Parker sample sale and just kept in my closet for the right time. And what’s better then espadrilles to wear while in Spain. Mine are Soludo sandals, also a sample sale purchase. Finished the look with my fan bag from Mar Y Sol and a classic straw hat. Because my pieces are sample sale finds and currently sold out online, I am linking very similar ones to recreate my look.
