Two cities

The more it feels like summer in Barcelona, the more it starts to feel like home thanks to the warm weather and the fact that both places offer a pretty similar lifestyle. While I used to live in Tijuana just on the border with San Diego, Barcelona reminds me so much of Los Angeles, where charming places to drink coffee, shop and walk through the beach abound and are enough to keep you entertained for a whole year without leaving the city.

Mientras más se acerca el verano en Barcelona más comienzo a sentirme como en casa gracias al tiempo cálido y a que ambos lugares ofrecen un estilo de vida muy similar. Si bien vivía en Tijuana justo en la frontera con San Diego, Barcelona me recuerda muchísimo a Los Ángeles, en donde los sitios encantadores para tomar un café, salir de compras y pasear por la playa sobran y son suficientes para tenerte un año completo sin necesidad de salir de la ciudad.

One style

When I think of LA style, comes to my mind the image of light, loose and soft colored fabrics, as well as denim and high heeled sandals which are easy to wear when you own a car, the same pair that in Barcelona will become a wardrobe decoration because they’re only convenient to wear on special occasions or short strolls. Both cities have everything you need to keep your creativity pumped up, but Barcelona is the one that stole my heart, even if I have more heels without using than cafes I haven’t been to.

Cuando pienso en el estilo de LA, me vienen a la mente telas ligeras, sueltas y en colores suaves, así como en denim y sandalias de tacón que son fáciles de usar cuando tienes coche, los mismos que en Barcelona se convierten en decoración del armario porque sólo son convenientes en ocasiones especiales o paseos cortos. Ambas ciudades cuentan con todo lo que necesitas para mantener tu creatividad al cien, pero Barcelona es la que se ha robado mi corazón, aunque tenga más tacones sin usar que cafés en los que no he estado.

  1. I’ve been following this site foir a while now and this is one of my favourite posts because it shows my favourite city: Barcelona!
    (And is not easy to choose the best post since they are all so good!)

    Adriana, we can see so much passion behind these posts! You inspired me to start my own blog so thank you!

    I’m just starting but here’s mine: http://friedfashionlife.blogspot.pt/

  2. Lovely pictures and outfit. I like the minimal styling. Barcelona is definitely in my bucket list. I can’t wait to have warmer weather. Holland is still very cold. I miss the warm mexican weather, a lot!

    • Hi Sara!
      For shopping I recommend Passeig de Gracia and L’illa Diagonal, if you’re looking for small boutiques or vintage shopping you can walk through El Born, for eating I really like Milk bistro (american food), Flax & Kale (flexitarian-healthy), Teresa Carles (vegan), Travel&Cake or Brunch&Cake (american food with a kick), if you like macarons you -have- to try the Enric Rosich ones. If you want tapas I recommend you Tapeo, La Alcoba Azul; those are my favorites although I’m not very into tapas, just avoid eating at very touristic places (except for the beach, those are all really good).
      For entertainment I recommend you to walk through the city and not taking the bus unless it’s truly neccessary; Montjuic, Tibidabo, Barceloneta, Parque Guell, Las Ramblas, Barrio Gotico and a bunch of museums I can’t even dare to list are all great options.
      I’m probably forgetting a bunch of stuff, but this is what it comes to my mind right now :) hope it helps! x
