Sant Jordi: a social Barcelona hostel

Several weeks ago, I found myself with just a night in Barcelona. The next day I was headed to Andorra, so I reserved myself a room in a hostel for the night. Little did I know that this hostel would be among one of my favorites. If you’re looking for a social Barcelona hostel (and Barcelona is a great place to make new traveler friends), then look no further.social Barcelona hostel

My first Spain photoshoot look 1

Spain photoshoot

This is my first Spain photoshoot! For those of you new to the blog, I just moved to Granada, Spain to teach English and practice my Spanish. I have such an adventurous spirit and I love to explore, so life overseas just seemed to make sense. When moving overseas, everything changes. You need a new phone number, new friends, you have a new job, etc. etc. etc. One of the things I was unsure about was who would shoot my blog photos. As a single lady in a new town where I’d know no one, I honestly had no idea. Luckily my friend Nathalie, one of the first people I met in Granada, got me in contact with her friend Jana who enjoys photography. She was so nice and easy to work with. And in classic Spain fashion, we got tapas together after the photoshoot. I love how open everyone is to new friendship in my new country!

We decided that Carmen de Los Mártires was a great spot for the shoot. It’s a beautiful park up on a hill near the famous Alhambra (which I still have yet to visit … I’m told I can go for free once I register my new address with the city). This dress is one I found when shopping in Granada. A lot of the dresses are in this style … long, trumpet sleeves. It’s as if the 70’s are making a comeback. I love it.

A little bit of history

I love that wherever I go in Spain, there’s probably some history attached to it. I mean, yes, you can say the same for the United States. But it’s just … different in Europe.

This is Carmen de los Mártires. According to the website lovegranada.com, the Catholic queen at the time ordered that the first Catholic church in Granada be built on top of this hill in memory of the Christian martyrs who died during the conflict with the Arabs. Granada and much of Southern Spain were at one time ruled by the Moors, an Arabic tribe. It later became a bigger church and convent. However in the 19th century, it was sold. So now it is a a beautiful park. We saw several brides in fact.

Outfit details: Dress from Cayville, a little boutique here in Granada. The rest of the outfit are oldies but goodies. I’ve honestly been working a lot and am too tired to go look for similar ones. Perhaps next time folks.

Guest blogger Ada: My Summer of Dresses

Today we have our second guest blogger of the week. Meet Ada! I will say that one of my favorite things about being a blogger is the community. As I settle into life in Granada, I do not have to worry about new content. Thanks ladies!
Hello. I am Ada, the blogger (and mom) behind Elegance and Mommyhood a blog on my every-day style as a mom and as a busy housewife, with a few office outfits every now and then. I am so happy to be guest-blogging for my friend Nina today. I love her style and her dresses. I wish Nina the best of luck and lots of fun in Spain. She will paint Spain – stylish –  with all of her pretty dresses. Like Nina, I own a lot of dresses (over a hundred) and wear them a lot. My daughter Vivian is 3 and a half and she is my special guest on my blog, often. Like mommy, Vivian wears a lot of Dresses, too. 

Since the official first day of Fall was yesterday (September 22nd) I wanted to say a Farewell to Summer by recapping my 12 Most Favorite Dresses that I have worn this Summer and talking a little bit about each outfit. For each outfit, I will also include some advise on how to style each dress for Fall.

 

summer of dresses
Dress: Xhilaration (Target).
This Summer I wore a lot of Little White Dresses. I kicked off Summer by wearing this Gorgeous Dress in late May and having my mini me matching me in her own off-shoulder little white dress. This dress has some crochet around the hem and it paired so well with those light beige/nude espadrille wedge sandals. Add a long cardigan in brown, camel, gray, black, navy or honey and this dress would be perfect to transition now.

Dress: Who What Wear (Target).
Original Post.
I don’t have many Midi Dresses but this Summer I changed that and purchased this Gorgeous Black+White Floral one. The material is such a breezy chiffon and I love the wide ruffle on the hem and the see-through part. I can see this with block-heeled booties (any color really: camel, black, burgundy, brown, navy, red, cream, royal blue, olive, gray), a denim jacket and the same bag for a great Fall-transitioning outfit.

Dress: Merona (Target).

This Summer I also wore a bunch of Maxi Dresses. I didn’t used to own many Maxi Dresses prior to this year. This beautiful macrame-neckline cobalt one was one of my Summer buys this year and I loved it. I dressed it up with faux suede coral pumps yet kept it casual with an orange fedora. I would keep that fedora to style it for Fall (since the orange is a great shade for Autumn), take off the belt, add a cozy grandpa cardigan in magenta, burgundy or mauve and wear my leopard flats. Leopard looks lovely with cobalt and any shade of  burgundy.

Dress: Merona (Target).

This is my only kimono-sleeve dress but I kind of want another one (ideally in red). This one has a cool, unique white floral print. Coincidentally this was the LBD I wore to participate in celebrating Nina’s Birthday this year and as you can see by the collage above I styled it two ways for day and night. At work, for Fall I would add some bright tights (in red, burgundy, rust or mustard) with some black suede pumps or black suede booties.

Dress: Sami+Dani.
If you buy a LWD, make your first one an eyelet one. An eyelet white dress is pretty much the definition of Summer, fashion-wise. Now this one has a mosaic-patterned eyelet design on the bottom hem, the sleeves and on the hem of the top part (since it is an overlay style). I wore this recently to work with pops of color: fuchsia and teal, and got a lot of compliments. Because of the longer sleeves, the dress will be easy to wear September thru November. Try it with a denim jacket, a BF cardigan, a black moto jacket or a camel leather jacket. Also for shoes try it with knee-high boots, dessert booties or wedge suede booties.

Dress: Merona (Target).
Original Post.
This hi-lo maxi in a vibrant shade of coral-red is one of the ones I wore on my July Vacation this year. My sweet girl Vivian wore one of her favorite dresses: this pink floral+striped dress with her flower thong sandals. Now, I definitely think this is a typical Summer dress but adding a cropped jacket, a shrug or little cardigan to it, with some nude flats or even a bootie, would make it great to style it in September or October.

summer of dresses
Dress: Ann Taylor.
Probably my most favorite LWD I purchased this Summer. This is perfect because it is in a popover shirt-dress style, with an A-line midi skirt, the nicest, most comfortable breezy poplin cotton material and the best part – the back. The top back of the dress is all in eyelet. Again one of those Dresses that is more Summery (hello: eyelet) but I would add cognac accessories to it, a tan blazer and a plaid blanket scarf for Fall.


summer of dresses
Dress: 3 Hearts (target.com).
Original Post.
OK, so this outfit already has some Fall elements in it, because you know white sneakers are perfect all year long. By the way I love wearing sneakers with dresses. What I would change for Fall is swap the denim vest for a denim jacket, tie a little bandanna scarf on my neck and keep the same sneakers or another pair of white sneakers or even a pair of black Converse.


summer of dresses
Dress: Wal Mart.
Original Post.
As you have seen from this post, a lot of my dresses come from Target, so many budget-friendly options out there. Every now and then I will find an everyday, great casual dress at Wal Mart, like this olive midi dress which I added the floppy navy hat too (it was needed for all that sun). Olive is a huge color for Fall so this might be the easiest one to transition yet. I would keep the olive+black cuff, add my olive booties and either my denim bomber jacket or a leather jacket. This Fall I added a merlot-colored leather+suede jacket. That would look gorgeous over this olive midi dress and so would a black moto leather jacket.


summer of dresses
Dress: Spenser Jeremy.
Original Post.
How much I love this bright, bold floral scuba dress. The vibrant pinks, purples and turquoise pop! Pairing it with my Orange Saddle Bag was a great idea. I wore this to work this Summer. For now I would actually keep the gorgeous-hued orange bag and wear some classic burgundy or black pumps instead. I would add a tailored black blazer to it. If it was too cool, I would add some semi-sheer black tights, too.


summer of dresses
Dress: Who What Wear (Target).
Original Post.
I went for the sporty, athleisure vibes with this gorgeous eyelet LBD. Love the midi length. Once again I paired a dress with white leather sneakers. For a Fall casual day, I would go with a monochromatic head to toe black look: my black leather sneakers, a black cross-body bag and my black leather moto jacket. Talk about a chic and edgy mom.
summer of dresses
Dress: Xhilaration (Target).
I think in your collection of white dresses, you should have a maxi. This one is in a light and comfy gauze material and the chest area is embroidered in light tan/gold. As you see, I styled it with a very cozy, over-sized light tan cardigan. The red accessories added some bright color pops and the laceup style of my flats and the layered necklaces, made this look a little Bohemian. I would keep the same bohemian look with a couple of simple switches to transition it to Fall. The cozy grandpa cardigan over the dress and I would swap these red suede lace-up flats for my cognac suede laceup flats, just a very simple switch. I could probably add a big cozy scarf to it too, something in rich reds or in tones of purple.
Thank you everyone for reading and to Nina for letting me take over her blog, today. Hope you enjoyed my walk down memory lane with some of the dresses I have worn this Summer and how I plan to transition them into Fall. I invite you all over to my blog Elegance and Mommyhood. I also run a style linkup on Thursdays so I welcome you to join it. =) The latest, brand-new linkup can be here. I can also be found on PinterestInstagramBloglovin’, and Facebook. Thank you and have a great weekend!

Guest blogger: Sarah and 5 fall colors

Hi everyone! As I am moving overseas to Spain this week, I decided to ask some of my favorite blogger friends to help me out! Sarah will be the first of three guest bloggers this week. Check her out!

Hello, A World of Dresses readers! I am Sarah and I blog over at Bows & Clothes. I am a Christian who loves chocolate, shoes, makeup, music, and Jesus, not in that order. At Bows & Clothes, I share fashion trends, style ideas, beauty tips, and my life adventures. You can get to know me better here. I also co-host a weekly link up on Monday’s called Grace + Lace. I’d love for you to follow along on Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest.

Who’s ready for fall?! I know I am! Today, I am sharing with y’all four colors that are simply amazing for fall.

1. Pumpkin Spice

This is beautiful dark orange color that I have affectionately named Pumpkin Spice because frankly, I don’t know what to call it. It is a gorgeous dark orange, brownish color. Whatever you call it, it is amazing and I know I will be wearing it non-stop this coming season.

2. Olive

Last year, I purchased a military jacket, and I literally wore it every single day. I love it! Olive is a super big color for fall this year. I have seen so many pieces in the color olive green. Olive goes with seriously every color and I am so in love with it.

3. Burgundy/Maroon

This color was super big for fall last year, and it has come back strong again this season. I love this color and it looks good with every skin tone. It’s rich and dark and fantastic!

4. Mustard

I have never been a big fan of yellow, and I don’t think it looks very good on me, however, I actually like mustard, and it doesn’t look half bad on me. Mustard is the perfect fall transition color because it is slightly bright, but also really fall-ish.







What color for fall are you going to wear? Which of these is your favorite?


Thanks so much, Nina, for letting me guest post!

What we wore in Portland part 2

wore in Portland

Today we are wrapping up our posts about Portland, Oregon with the second edition of what we wore in Portland. My packing was very light and minimal, so I ended up packing lots of dresses. Cece packed light as well. These are the outfits we wore on our last day. I wore my favorite (and only) pineapple dress and she wore some awesome striped shorts she found at a vintage store. We went down to a little spot by the river to dip our toes in and catch some rays of sun. Afterwards, I was told I looked red. Go figure.

What we wore in Portland (last day … sad)

wore in Portland

I scored this dress on Zulily. How many opportunities do you have to wear a pineapple dress? It has become the perfect bathing suit cover up. Its comfortable and easy to slip off. I decided to pair it with a simple red statement necklace that I’ve had for years, some bright red shades that I found on the trip and the black sandals I’ve been wearing all summer. Each season, I seem to buy one pair of shoes in a neutral color such as black or brown and wear them with everything. This season was no different.

My size 6 behind is sticking with Gwynnie Bee

When I first saw an ad for Gwynnie Bee, I’ll admit that I jumped in a little head over heels. The sidebar ad on one of the blogs I follow (and I’m afraid I cannot remember exactly which one) advertised a month of free clothing sent right to your door. This would excite practically any woman. Yet for me, it was particularly enticing as I blog about dresses. What a great and affordable way to add a few new dresses to the mix?

The plunge

I clicked on the ad that brought me directly to the page to sign up. What questions did I need to ask? Free clothing for a month … come on! What problem could I have with that? I go through the whole process and have an account. I’m ready to start looking through clothing.

The process looks simple. You just put clothing in your virtual Gwynnie Bee closet. Once you have at least six items, they can send you your first shipment. They never send you anything that’s not in your closet, so you’ll be sure to end up with something you’re likely to like. Great!

The realization

I’m a size six and a medium. I’m basically the middle of the road and always have been. As I began looking through the dresses, I found it odd that hardly any went below a size 10 or a large. I then realized that Gwynnie Bee is made for women size 10 and larger.

We live in a society that tells us that being a size 6 is the norm and every shop should meet our needs. While I had occasionally given thought to that before, I really gave it some thought in this moment.

“So Gwynnie Bee is focused on sizes 10-32? Great! Their stuff is adorable and I’m glad so many amazing women can enjoy what they offer,” I thought.

In my sheer excitement for free clothing, I over-looked this small factoid. I’m sure it was somewhere on that original ad, but it did not catch my eye.

And now we’re friends

I decided to keep my subscription with Gwynnie Bee. Upon searching, I found that a few brands carried mediums. Furthermore, sometimes a large or a size 10 runs small. In short, I never failed to have less than six items in my closet at a time. In fact, I currently have 16.

DSC_0153

My subscription with Gwynnie Bee has given me a different perspective and for that I am so thankful. I spend so much of my life trying to understand experiences different than what I know. This is no different.

Once every few months I look through Gwynnie Bee’s new arrivals. I’ll see a cute dress, click on it and see that it does not come in my size. I then move onto the next thing I like and so on. For plus-sized women, this may be something they also experience. It really blows that we live in a world where not all women can shop at the stores they want. To be honest, though, I never really have to do much thinking on this. As a size 6 and a medium, I can almost always find clothing to fit, whether in brick and mortar stores or online.

As a blogger, I’m passionate about using my voice to change things. There are many things I do not like about the world we live in. Yet as a blogger, I get to be the media. So as the media, I would just like to thank Gwynnie Bee for:

  1. Being exactly who you are
  2. Running an awesome Instagram page
  3. Sending me amazing dresses
  4. Loving women for who they are

So in celebration of Gwynnie Bee, here are a few of the dresses Gwynnie Bee has sent me over the last few months:

Jazmin and the Mexican dress

Hi all! Welcome to part three of our photoshoot with Jazmin. This part includes a short interview with some hard-hitting questions. This is one of my favorite parts of featuring different people each week. Everyone has such interesting things to say about womanhood, dresses and anything else life.

Mexican dress

I absolutely love this dress. Jazmin is originally from Mexico City, Mexico, and bought this dress there. It was designed to be worn to the wonderful beaches of Mexico. As many of you know, I want to travel the entire world. I hope to explore Mexico one day. Many of my clients at Su Casa Hispanic Center (my day job) are from Mexico. As with any place, they have a mixture of good and less good things to say. The food, though, is one thing I think we can all agree is simply amazing.

This dress, though, is amazing! It is so super unique! I love anything colorful!

Okay now with the questions:

Name: Jazmin Ojeda

Age: “I’m forever 28”

Location: Cincinnati, Ohio; originally from Mexico City, Mexico

Profession: Engineer

What was that like coming to the United States at first?

It was difficult. It was fun because you come to another country, but it’s difficult to get adapted to the weather, the language and the people. It’s a shock. But then you just … you know. You learn as you go.

Do you have any funny stories from when you first came here of things you didn’t understand or said wrong?

So I went to the drive-though with my brother, because I learned some English in high school, but it’s not the same. And I couldn’t understand anything and I couldn’t place my order. So then I decided to apply for a job at Burger King because that’s where we went through the drive-through. And I’m thinking maybe I can just work in the kitchen. So they put me in the front and for the first three days I was like “what do I do?” I didn’t know how to give change. I didn’t know like nothing. So like this guy came in and said “can I have a hamburger with everything on it but onion?” And I thought “but onion? What does that mean?” Actually I had to go and ask someone “what does it mean when you say ‘but something?” So things like that would happen to me every day. So that’s how I pretty much learned.

Yeah you learn from making those mistakes. Very cool. So what are you most passionate about in life?

I like learning. So for example I became an engineer because learning to me is easy. I think I can learn anything I want to. If I read something, I will grasp it right away. Engineering is difficult. It’s a lot of thinking and it’s a lot of mathematics. When I’m solving a problem, I just get into my own world. Working with numbers just gets me lost. So it’s like a passion. I can just kill time doing some sort of problem or resolving something, and next thing you know it relaxes me. And getting an answer or the right thing just feels like a huge accomplishment.

What does being a woman mean to you?

It is kind of hard being a woman but it is the most precious gift that a human being can have. Only women can understand things that humanity won’t. We are able to give birth. We could do anything that any other man can … probably even better. We’re capable of multitasking, bearing pain, being as smart as we want to be, seductive … we have all kinds of tools that it is just amazing. I think that there is a lot of bad things about being a woman too, but the good things are just like … it’s like a pandora box. We’re full of surprises. To me, that’s a blessing.

How does wearing a dress make you feel?

I feel that I have power because I’m coming back to being a woman and using my womanhood to express myself. It depends on the dress. You could dress up for the office and it makes you feel more confident and more intelligent. It’s just your femininity but also what you represent. So wearing the dress to me is like being a little kid and a woman at the same time … it’s like an illusion.

 

Jazmin could not pick just three dresses for our shoot. This fourth one was also amazing. She got it from BCBG to be the matron of honor in her sister’s wedding. We decided to keep warm and take these photos in the living room.

5 ways I honor my mom

honoring my mom

This past Tuesday, I got caught in a downpour. I was walking to lunch with a few friends and the place ended up being farther away than we thought. The original plan was to take photos in this cute cafe we were headed to. Then for a few moments, I decided against that considering that I was soaked. Yet after I checked myself in the mirror, I decided “eh, why not?” My blog is not about myself or anyone else looking perfect. It’s about sharing life with the world around me. Sometimes that means getting caught in a downpour.

How I honor my mom

This dress was found on sale at H & M several months back. I instantly loved how easy of a dress it is. You just put it on with some tights and boots, and you are ready to go. I’ve also always worn it with a good necklace.

honoring my mom

As many of you know, my mom passed in January. She was a big fan of the Hunger Games, so my best friend got me two Mockingjay necklaces for Christmas. She was in hospice during that time. She was buried in one of them and I have the other.

I had not yet worn it and I’m not really sure why. Yet on Tuesday, it just seemed to go with the outfit. It was such a neat way to remember my mom throughout the day. Thus it got me thinking of ways that I remember and honor my mom.

1. Jewelry

The Mockingjay necklace is not the only piece of jewelry I have that’s connected to her. Anything she gave me is something that connects me to her. I have this necklace with the letter N on it and several other things. I also have scarves and dresses that she gave me with such love.

honoring my mom

2. My dog Toby

Dogs were also one of her favorite things. She loved our dog Toby a lot. She also loved animal rescues and I’m sure would have fostered 20 dogs if she could. So any time that I spend with Toby I know is making her happy.

honoring my mom

3. Just doing what I love

My mom was always a big proponent of me chasing my dreams. She was always my biggest supporter and wanted nothing to hold her back. I know she’s looking down proudly.

honoring my mom

4. Watching all her favorite shows

We would spend a lot of time watching TV shows with her such as The Middle, The Office, Parks and Recreation and The Big Bang Theory. I can just imagine all the things she’d say.

5. Just being me

Because she never wanted me to be anyone else.

Dress: Charlotte Russe (similar)

Shoes: Aldo (similar)

This dress is very special to Jazmin. She had it in her closet for seven years but never wore it because it didn’t fit. Then she went on a healthy weight-loss journey a few years back, and was able to fit into in the end. She even almost gave it away! She’s of course glad she didn’t!
