The Barcelona Lookbook: how matching your outfit to the works of Antoni Gaudi is totally okay when you’re in Spain.
Day three of our Spanish expedition was all about Gaudi. The gameplan was to visit Park Guëll and casually blend in with the background. Because I’m always prepared, I packed my Gaudi-inspired maxi dress – what? like you don’t have one – that I found at New Look’s teenage department the week before and practiced posing for pictures on the famous mosaic benches. After having walked through the free part of the park, we deemed it perfect timing to get in line to buy tix for the superior part of the park (benches! a church! another building! that’s it!) but were told the tickets up for sale would only be valid for 30 minutes, three hours later. Waiting for 3 hours on the top of a scorching hot mountain while we could be laying on the beach instead seemed like a stupid thing to do, so off we went. And with it, my vision of the perfectly matching instagram snap. That’s a valid excuse to go back soon, right?
