I always felt attracted to the city live. There is something about the energy and vibrancy of big cities that resonates deeply with me. Growing up in a small town I knew I’ll move away right after high school and was so looking forward to that day. And even after several years of living in different cities across Europe I don’t feel tired. While many chose to get away from the city bustle during weekends I never feel the urge to escape it.
My preferred ways to spend the weekends are either out for endless brunches, dinners, movies, concerts or coffee dates or by the beach. Even when I’m travelling I follow the same pattern. Instead of spending my time sight seeing I like to experience the place I’m in through the perspective of a local. I would much rather go to a local cafe outside the tourist route and observe the locals that taking a tour or waiting in line to get in at one of the tourist attractions.
Guess cities are just an endless source of inspiration for me. And that’s true especially when it comes to style. Barcelona is a city of contrast from this point of view. I already wrote about the local fashion scene in one of my previous posts so you must know by now that Barcelona is the LA of Europe. But there is a contrast between the relaxed and casual crowds you’ll see in neighbourhoods like Born or Barcelonetta and the urban and sophisticated ones you’ll see on the streets of Eixample. Thou I live in the very heart of Gottico I often find myself going out of the Boheme city centre to enjoy the urban vibes that Barcelona has to offer. Today’s outfit is what I tend to wear on days like that. It’s also what I feel most comfortable in without sacrificing style. And to be completely honest with you I purposely stay away for that denim uniform everyone seems to wear in the city.
