Outfit for family events - Blue is the clue10:00 AM
Three Wise Men/Three Kings Day. In Spain, Christmas aren't officially over until 6th January. Here, both child and adults are excited to find their gifts on the 6th January morning. It's a huge tradition for Spanish families to go have lunch together usually at a restaurant more than at home. After giving our presents to each other at home, we usually get dressed in our best clothes and if there are child in the house, it's pretty common to go "on tour" to your relatives' to get the rest of the gifts and then head for lunch. There are no child at my house, and as I have only one older cousin and my family is pretty small, we just take the day off to meet, get our classy, event-proof outfits out of the closet (and I get to wear tons of makeup because #YOLO) and we just have fun around some Spanish dishes, paella and tapas.
I think this is a nice outfit for family events. Although it is Winter, Valencia has that mediterranean weather I'll miss for sure if I'm granted with the Erasmus at the very north of Europe next course. It's the kind of weather that allows you to wear light crepe dresses and short sleeves at the very beginning of January. I think this outfit is great because it's classy, but not too formal and it is also appropriate for other family events as baby showers or birthdays. I always like to add a blazer to complete any outfit. Is my go-to piece to balance any outfit assemble: it can add a hint of sophistication to the plainest jean, and take off a lot of seriousness on this kind of more formal outfits. Also, I find this baby blue quite the interesting color for this events, specially for daylight! It reminds me of Spring, and the sky when it's sunny and clear at the city, and you get to stroll downtown as you're eating a slice of pizza.
I've spent this whole week dealing with my wisdom teeth removed, so, eating at this family event was quite the tricky thing but I at least managed to get a whole bowl of ice-cream for myself! *happy* I shared a hint of this day and the outfit at my Instagram account, where I always upload crazy selfies, silly stuff, and I also would love to get your answers to the following question...
