This is what I was wearing when I went sightseeing (OK, shopping, whatever…) in Barcelona. Yes, another hot weather outfit: loose and comfortable, covering as much skin as possible (to protect me from the sun).
And you may (or may not) remember that I posted almost exactly the same outfit a couple of years ago (with an orange linen shirt instead of a pink one). Yes, this is how long I keep wearing the same clothes… And why not? I hate the idea of wearing something just once, or even just one summer. I’m very much against throw-away culture and fast fashion, and buy (most of) my clothes intending to wear them for several years. And I don’t mind repeating outfits, either.
That being said, the sandals here might not get a second outing very soon. They’re very pretty, and felt really comfortable at first. Yet, they gave me enormous blisters. Seriously, I can still see the scars on my left foot, almost two weeks after these pictures were taken…
And the hair… That’s not an updo. Not really: I just pulled the hair away from my neck and pinned random strands up, a bit haphazardly. My hair is actually rather thin and soft, but because it’s naturally curly it looks bigger. And it sort gets a bit crazy when it’s hot (or humid). This means that it gets even bigger and curlier and makes my neck sweat… So, I just pinned it up for comfort.
And no, I haven’t thought of cutting my hair short. It’s not that I don’t like short hair, quite the contrary: my dream hair would be a tidy pixie cut… But, with a curly hair (like mine) that won’t work. Trust me: been there, done that, destroyed the photos… No, my hair has decided that it will only behave (to some extent, and not every day) as long as I keep it shoulder length. Hence the haphazard updo…
