It's ironic how even after I've graduated, I'm still just as busy and possibly even more so busy. I've been balancing a median of work, my start-up business Plume and my social life while throwing in tidbits of vacations, athleticism and blogging into my life. I always joke about how I wish I could live two lives to do all the things I love without constantly feeling overwhelmed, but I'm starting to realize that I just have that type-a personality where I also thrive under pressure. Battle of my own ambitions as I would say. That being said, my style these days have turned into versatile basics that I can just throw on while having 1 key element that still says fashion-forward me. Can you guess what that piece is in here (hint: it's silver). While I miss blogging as often as I used to, blogging has definitely been and is one of my escapes for it's a hobby that I love doing as long as time permits.

SUMMER IN BARCELONA

AT PARK GUELL
Zara dress, 3.1 Phillip Lim mini pashli, Prada sunglasses, Dogeared earrings (similar here), Leifsdotter sandals























































We only had 3.5 days in Barcelona, so we literally jampacked everything we could within these 3 days. Of everything we did though visiting all of Antoni Gaudi's marvelous works were beyond my favorite and most appreciated. Park Guell in particular was one of my favorites due to it's refreshing take on incorporating all elements of architecture (landscape, structural, interior and exterior) into one monumental space. Being California natives, my girlfriends and I kept joking about about how we started missing nature throughout our Europe trip, so it was refreshing to visit a historic landmark that had a good balance of it all.
