Barcelona Bound

When I saw Woody Allen's indie film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona last year I fell in love with the city, Gaudi's architecture, and all of Penelope Cruz's outfits in the movie. Little did I know that I'd have the opportunity to visit a year later. So, I write this is complete anxiousness before our 2:30 am departure (.. it's going to be a long day!). I'm SO anxious to explore the beach, shop Las Ramblas, and try out some flamenco dancing!

I'm using Penelope Cruz's character as my sartorial inspiration for packing for the weekend, even the messy hair since I will be sans blow dryer.

I hope to share more stories and images from my trip when I return! If you're just finding my blog or haven't read it in a while, make sure to catch up on my last 4 weeks of studying abroad!
