Is anyone else here ready for Spring? I definitely had Spring on my mind when I bought this Sfera floral dress several weeks back. Sfera has become one of my favorite shops over here in Spain. They tend to have cute styles in all sorts of colors and at affordable prices. Hence the last time I was there, I snagged a few deals.
I’ll also be the first to admit that I didn’t instantly love all the recent fashions. Perhaps some of them are Spain trends and some of them are trends everywhere. Here, it seems that everything is ruffles and clunky shoes. Perhaps I should take the clunky shoes as a challenge and attempt to style them with an outfit. However I initially was not enamored with them.
You will notice that this dress has a bit of ruffle and puff to it. I decided to jump out on a limb. Fashion is about taking risks, after all.
Where am I?
Well I’m so glad you asked! I live in Granada, Spain where I spend my days teaching English. Those of you who are regular readers of course already know that. Granada is located in the Southern region of Andalucia and is a must-see when traveling to Spain. It’s absolutely beautiful, historical and very inexpensive, which is basically a traveler’s dream. And I get to live there! What?!
I’ll be honest. Since I do live in Granada and spend my weekdays working, I can sometimes take it for granted. I just get into the hustle and bustle of daily life. And then I remind myself to stop doing that because Granada is amazing. I am very lucky to call this place my home.
I shot these photos on a Sunday morning with a new photographer named Jesus. He actually has his own channel on Youtube where he talks about everything photography. It is in Spanish because well, he is Spanish. But if you’re bilingual like me or even if you’re not, go have a look here.
We spent the morning wandering around the Albaicín neighborhood of Granada, or as he called it “Granada clasica.” And as we wandered from beautiful spot to beautiful spot, I kept thinking “I live here!” I will never run out of spots for fashion shoots living in Europe.
What are your thoughts on the ruffles of Spring fashions?
