Near the beach in Barcelona
After rambling on about it a fair few times, I finally jetted off to Barcelona last Thursday for a five day break in the beautiful Spanish city. I had a fantastic time, and would recommend it to anyone! It’s the perfect blend of relaxing beach holiday, and exciting city break. We got a great deal on Lastminute.com, and found ourselves lounging by a rooftop pool at a 4-star hotel. The sites – Sagrada Familia church and the stunning Park Guell, to name a few – were so interesting and exciting to see, and the beach, lined by alfresco bars and the warm, refreshing Mediterranean, made for the perfect holiday! If you haven’t been, GO!

I packed pretty lightly, knowing that once I was in the sun and having a great time I would want to be comfortable. My trusty H&M sandals, now in their third year of service, stayed on my feet pretty much the whole time. I covered up in the evenings in a light denim shirt from Primark which suited every outfit I wore.
After the non-summer we’ve had in the UK, I couldn’t wait to get my legs out and soak up some sun, and this gorgeous dress from Dahlia (who I’ve blogged my love for before) proved to be an ideal holiday piece. The high quality of the design is really a cut above the rest, and pretty details like the unusual position of the straps, the volume-boosting netted underskirt and the tassels dangling from the embroidered empire line add individuality to the dress. My pictures aren’t the best so be sure to check out this piece and others on their website!

Getting away from London is always something I enjoy. More often than not, it’s a trip to somewhere new and exciting in the UK, which is great, but it was lovely to go abroad and be somewhere hot! It’s given me a bit of a travel bug – if only time and money would allow for more regular mini-breaks to explore new places and just chill out!
Hope you’ve all had a good week in the meantime!
