“It’s interesting to leave a place, interesting even to think about. Leaving reminds us of what we can part with and what we cant, then offers us something new to look forward to, to dream about.” –Richard Ford
Hello my fashionistas! This is my last post from Seville (sad), and my journey to Paris starts tomorrow! It’s crazy that I’ve already completed a third of my study aboard extravaganza, but Spain will always have a piece of my heart.
Lifestyle and fashion here is very different, although it is very free and relaxed, you tend to see everyone dressing up, even to just go to lunch.One thing that I notice the most is the way elders present themselves in public. They always dress up as nice as they can, with their finest jewelry and dresses. It just goes to show how important everyone takes presenting themselves in public. I think this concept carry’s over to the younger generations, you’ll never see kids out in the city wearing baggy sweats and t-shirts, they are always dressed so stylish. One of my favorite things about their style here is their ability to layer. I’ve learned just from looking around me how to pair a sweater and collared shirt, or sweater over jeans in a unique way like the young fashionistas here.
With my Spanish heritage, the culture is always something that I carry with me. What I incorporate most into my lifestyle is the fashion, and after my time here I think it will be more evident than ever. The outfit I wore today embodies a lot of these Spanish aspects. Aside from being head to toe in Zara, trousers are commonly worn here and I’ve been dying to find the perfect-stripped pair (Zara sale).
My time here in Seville is coming to and end, I’m sad to leave this beautiful city behind. I’m beyond grateful to have been able to experience this and for my parents to give me this opportunity of a lifetime. In these short months of being here I’ve learned a lot about myself. It’s harder than most think to expose yourself to the world to be criticized, but I met a Seville native last night who reminded me exactly why I started Glamourcocktail, and that’s something that I will never forget.
Xoxo ciao bellas
