The Ultimate City Break Outfit

I only arrived home from Greece about two weeks ago but we’ve already booked a short break to Barcelona and I’m so excited. I’ve already been looking up the top things to do so if anyone’s got any recommendations for things to do, places to eat etc I’d love to hear them.

The weather’s still going to be really nice in Barcelona in September, about 25 degrees which is fab as I expect we’ll be having even worse weather here by that time. I’ve also been planning my sunny city break wardrobe already! Here’s a little wish list of a dream outfit I’m planning to be wearing wandering around La Rambla.

A simple t-shirt dress is the basis of a perfect city break outfit, this Black Ribbed Jersey Swing Dress is great. An outfit in literally two steps is what I love when I’m away – quick & easy. Add some Silver Flatform Sandals for a bit of something extra and this amazing Rae Feather Pom Pom Basket to carry essentials in. Comfy sandals are a must for city break and I can’t get enough of pom-poms at the moment!

In my city break beauty stash will always be some SPF for on the go and this Coola SPF 30 Pina Colada Sunscreen Spray smells like cocktails so it’s a must. Plus, being a spray sunscreen it’s a bit less hassle than your average suncream. I always have a lip balm in my bag and this EOS Lemon Drop Lip Balm is just sunshine-pretty and also smells amazing. Shine is the enemy, especially on holiday when the weather is guaranteed to be warmer so the Becca Blotting Powder Perfector is an essential bit of kit. I don’t wear a lot of makeup when abroad but a bit of mascara doesn’t go a miss and the Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara is perfect for this. So, there we have it, hopefully I’ll be wearing something very similar to this wandering around Barca!

  1. I love this! I’m so envious of all of your holidays booked this summer; sadly I am stuck in dreary old England- but I’m determined not to let it get me down! You’ve provided me with some serious outfit inspiration, and have almost certainly persuaded me to purchase a silver pair of flatforms too.. X
