Outfit Details:
Dress: Vintage from K I N G D O M 
Sunglasses: Festival Specs 

I’m extremely excited to share these images with you guys. It’s truly a combination of a number of beautiful elements and little details that make this one of my most favourite outfit posts ever. Our location, Barcelona Spain, our setting, the gorgeous apartment from Airbnb hosts Philona, our outfit, a rosy tailored vintage number that told a story of elegance and grace. The sun was shining, and we were feeling like the luckiest girls in the world.

Moments like makes us pinch ourselves and us question “is this really happening?” Having the opportunity to travel halfway across the world to the place of art, architecture and sangria. If given the opportunity, we would be back there in an instant. What also made our stay so special was our stay in this gorgeous Spanish apartment. We really lucked out on this one.

Our dear friend and travel buddy Emily found this place on Airbnb and we were instantly drawn to it. After looking at a number of other options we decided to go with the “fancy one” and a few weeks later we were making our way towards the apartment of our dreams.

Phil and Fiona, our airbnb hosts, truly outdid themselves with creating a beautiful place for wide eye travellers to call a home. So did we feel like fancy senoritas living an opulent lifestyle filled with slow days and countless memories. You better believe we did.
