Spanish Project

Prior to our trip to Barcelona, Madrid, and Sevilla, I couldn’t decide what to pack with me. I didn’t want to go a typical route and pack simply shorts, t-shirts, and a couple of dresses. I wanted to opt in for a more authentic type of outfit.  I was not necessarily ready to dress as a flamenco dancer, but I definitely wanted a hint of a Spanish tradition in my #OOTDs. When I found this cute dress by Forever 21, I felt that my goal was only partly accomplished. The look that I combined with simple espadrilles was not finished without an accent piece…

When the boutique with the optimistic name Happiness Boutique approached me, I immediately spotted the gem of their collection, Crystal Black Tassel Earrings. I can’t fully explain how much I felt for that piece. I’ve been wearing those gorgeous earrings almost every day (you will notice that in the upcoming a couple of looks) and received tons of compliments. Not to mention that I finally accomplished my Spanish project and used that accessory as a perfect companion for my black maxi dress. In my opinion, this outfits looks modern, but it has that slight Spanish accent I was looking for. What do you think? Do you like it or not so much? I look forward to hearing your opinions.

    This is a really great, sassy yet relaxed look for a Spanish vacation. I love the pops of color in contrast with the black and your fair skin. You look wonderful. Also the shoes are a fun touch. 🙂
