Hello fashionista mamas! Back with another post shot in Barcelona earlier this summer. I love looking at the photos and remembering the fun days we spent there.
Casual Cocktail Dress
If you like being dressed in black, summer cocktail attire poses a challenge. Black is sophisticated, but it can look to heavy and ominous for summer. This Sandro tight-fitting jersey dress struck the right balance by adding white and beige stripes in a fun pattern, giving the dress some rays of light. Another way to handle black for summer is to pair it with beige or white shoes and a light-colored bag. Since we were headed to a rooftop restaurant, I also added a light beige shawl.
I love the original twist on the classic “little black dress.”
I was so happy about stepping out that I didn’t notice the colored garbage bins on our little street. Oops!After a short drive, we met up with some good friends for dinner. Here’s the view from our restaurant.I miss our lovely Barcelona friends and evenings like this spent overlooking the rooftops, enjoying yummy wine, and feeling good and easy about life. Sigh! Thanks to my sweetie aka Marc for snapping this shot.Thanks for reading.
