On the Street....Summer Detail, Barcelona

In the heat of summer it can be really hard to make a tee and shorts look interesting.
Finding items with some type of special design detail, like the lace inset for the tee or the sailor buttons for the shorts, can go a long way in taking a look to the next level.

Love it. Simple amd nice


Blogger Leslee said ... (5:03 PM) : 

Most definitely, the lace and the tattoos in her arms makes for a style that is carefree yet tough.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:08 PM) : 

Summer shorts can be extremely difficult to wear if you don't have the right legs (which she has, no question about it), plus the dark colours make the whole outfit plane. Alhough I totally agree with the simple charm of the beautiful necklaces, I think a little bit of colour could have made it a perfect ten.


Blogger the nickel fit said ... (5:08 PM) : 

a little lace makes all the difference.

the shorts are exceptional. add just enough flair to a everyday outfit


Blogger J.Ro said ... (5:24 PM) : 

Very Penelope! I love the carefree posture and tattoos. All that's missing is a gelato cone in her hand.


Blogger Román Iglesias said ... (5:24 PM) : 

I don't love it at all but is gothinc barna style
I love barcelona and people from there


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (5:28 PM) : 

I agree...but she definitely found a way to spruce it up! I like her rings too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:28 PM) : 

Love the simple, understated elegance of the outfit...and there goes that denim again! Just a favor: I am always curious about what shoes they are wearing. Whenever possible, it would be nice to see the shoes as well!

I love this! The jewelry also step up the whole outfit and make it so cool and interesting!


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:50 PM) : 

I love her shorts. It's cool she's wearing a dark outfit but manages to glow and look so fresh. Well done!


Blogger kathrynnova said ... (5:53 PM) : 

actually i really love her hair piled on top of her head.

and there is something just wonderful to me about the ease of summer and the simplicity of the clothes - even if they don't stand out as in the other seasons. it's the season of rest!


Blogger mary louise said ... (5:56 PM) : 

i love the high bun


Blogger NobodyKnowsMarc said ... (5:58 PM) : 

she looks great!


Blogger Sara Hoo said ... (5:58 PM) : 

Her hair is really the only thing I Like about this photo. I actually thought the lace was a tacky tattoo, and I think it looks messy with the tattoo on her shoulder.


Blogger STREETFSN said ... (6:01 PM) : 

yeh it's pretty hard to find someone.
when I got Barcelona to photograph street fashion(just last month), most people prefer to wear easy fashion XP


Blogger SONGMAKER said ... (6:06 PM) : 

Yeah: The lace.
Yeah: The sailor buttons.
But that dreamy "I dream of Jeannie" hair doesn't hurt either.

...and the hair up!

She looks very vintage!

The lace looks like chest hair from afar.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:32 PM) : 

I have mixed feelings about it, I love the sailor short. Not certain of the pairing with the rest of the outfit. She looks so effortless and great.

Maybe with the jacket on I would have loved it better, but I bet it was too hot.


Blogger ADJ said ... (8:38 PM) : 

she is breathtaking... spanish women know how to do it right.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:38 PM) : 

love the top knot, and the effortless style. certainly makes me nostalgica for spain in the summer. gracias y besos! :)


Blogger Sydney said ... (8:52 PM) : 

I love the hair and the shirt she's holding!


Anonymous Sarah Farnsworth said ... (9:24 PM) : 

i'm into her whole vibe, though honestly at first glance i mistook the lace for chest hair and freaked out!! i'm all for the shorts, though.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:28 PM) : 

Lovely outfit!!
I'm gonna go to Barcelona on August!
Can't wait my summer vacation!



Blogger La Boheme said ... (9:38 PM) : 

She is dressed in dark colors but definitely still looks fresh. Her hair is my favorite! xo


Blogger Papillon Vintage said ... (10:04 PM) : 

I would have loved to see the tat a bit more.


Blogger Eilish said ... (10:46 PM) : 

lovely :)

The little details are what make fashion (and everything else in life!) your own! :)



Blogger Unknown said ... (11:39 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 AM) : 

the lace is not working. it needs to be a v as well and follow the neckline of the tank, or just be peeking out. it is waaay to high cut and actually distrcts enough to ruin the whole look.

basically: too much of a good thing.

the rest of it is lovely, though, the hair is perfect, the shorts fit her superbly, and her silver jewelry stands out nicely against the dark hues of her clothing.


Anonymous zelda in Dunkerque said ... (1:29 AM) : 

she looks like she's having (or is going to have) a really nice day - it's that glow of happiness that makes the dark colours shine

Blogger stoneandcloth said ... (1:41 AM) : 

so fresh and vibrant. really like this one :)!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:06 AM) : 

I want that shirt! (And I want to look as good as she does wearing it.) The shorts verge a bit on twee, but the dark palette and goth-y vibe make it all work. Bet the outfit looks great with the jacket thrown over it, too.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:13 AM) : 

love it, great look

Sympa de voir qu'il faut beau temps à Barcelone! A Genève, impossible de porter des shirts.


Blogger MJCK said ... (4:49 AM) : 

At first I thought you meant her flower tattoos as being the summer detail.;) But it's true, during a hot summertime it's the details that count most for making an outfit still look special.


Blogger Maria Ana said ... (5:24 AM) : 

I love the buttons on the shorts and the tattoos:)


Blogger Jennie Nguyen said ... (5:31 AM) :

I love lace!



Anonymous Clarence said ... (5:59 AM) : 

YAY! The wicked tattoos, the TWO necklaces, the sweet sweet lace.. HURRAH!! Would love to see her shoes, be they cute sneakers, dirty treks, or out-of-place heels or simply apathetic flip flops.. ;P

i like how she wasnt afraid to mix black and brown.. the buttons make the shorts fabulous



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:16 AM) : 

Keep the shorts- lose the "chest hair". Lace is a subtle texture, so I'm not a big fan of the way the garment draws attention to the lace insert. It's not the girl's fault, but the person who designed it probably wasn't thinking about how it would look on an actual person.


Anonymous FashionLifeCoach said ... (10:21 AM) : 

All in Black and not looking boring.That is the challenge like you said.But she got it right with the delicate accessories like necklaces and the bold rings.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:04 PM) : 

She is very pretty, and I like the tossed up hair, the necklaces and the tattoo, but I'm not crazy about the black on brown, the "hairy" lace, and the baggy shorts. She has a really interesting ring on her index finger.


Blogger la parisina said ... (1:23 PM) : 

Statement rings!
and THAT hair... I think the coiffure makes the big difference, too.
Love when you go to Barcelona (home sweet home :)

Cheers from Paris!


Blogger viejecita said ... (1:23 PM) : 

I love pretty tattoos on young girls.
The problem is, and I'm sorry to say so, that the tattoos don't look half as nice when the wearer is not so young any more.
Just imagine those tattoed flowers on a flabby and wrinkled shoulder.... Brrrrrrrr.


Blogger Juliet said ... (1:25 PM) : 

I love black lace!


Blogger hotstudsvintage said ... (1:54 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:20 PM) : 

I really love the look, but the lace looked like part of the tattoo and I kind of freaked out. But the jewelry is superb, small bracelet and lovely silver rings, the two necklaces. No earrings though. I notice now that she has another tattoo on the inside of her left arm.


Blogger green lantern said ... (2:47 PM) : 

Love the sailor front treatment on the shorts. I used to buy a pair of the original Wool Sailor pants every year while in high school. The horizontal striped shirts were a common accompanyment. Cute and basic.


Anonymous simone leblanc said ... (2:59 PM) : 

lovely! perfect for the hot days of summer....which are already here!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:12 PM) : 

Hmm, I think the lace look like chest hair.

Blogger Carrie said ... (4:03 PM) : 

the black lace makes it look like she has a hairy chest, i would prefer without the lace, or maybe a different color lace, or maybe a solid color behind it.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:03 PM) : 

I have been looking for the perfect sailor shorts for summer. I am still looking. I like her shorts a lot.

I totally agree. I just bought a soft grey tee with lace shoulders and back and it's so pretty dressed up or casual.

Adorable! Would love to see the outfit with her wearing the Levi jacket. The rings are a nice balance to the her necklaces. Love her backlight hallow. Angelic.

All buttoned up!


Anonymous Capsiplex said ... (12:51 AM) : 

Love the total lokk that she has created. To me the denim jacket carried loosely on in her hand becomes part of the look and the lace, buttons and tatoo peaking out add to th fem side.


Blogger Judita said ... (3:18 AM) : 

Think she is gorgeous, but I have to admit that at first glance, to me she appeared to have a chest full of thick hair. It was a little alarming for a moment! :-)


Blogger Ro said ... (5:17 AM) : 

the lace in her tee is lovely!it makes it so elegant!

I'm so sad... :(
Your pictures are gorgeous and try to come to Barcelona again.


Blogger said ... (1:34 AM) : 

i love this girls features, her outfit to me is okay, but her updo hair style, eyebrows, teeth and ears are what really stand out to me. She has no makeup on but ceases to look amazing.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (3:02 AM) : 

Cool buttons! And I like the rings.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:29 AM) : 

Im afraid it looks like she has a hairy chest! and w/ the tatoo its just totally not feminine for me! She should have taken a second look in the mirror! :-)

Barcelona is a lovely city, with great style.. Love the natural look of this lady



Anonymous bmr_colombiana said ... (12:16 PM) : 

Love the simplicity, yet elegance in this outfit. Her updo just adds to the effect of summer. Only thing is the tattoo is a little distracting from the lace in the top.

Great outfit, though!

Black lace detail can be tricky. It looks like chest hair from a distance. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but maybe not the intention.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:02 AM) : 

Maybe I'm the only one who doesn't like the lace. This lady is pretty and I like her style as well, but the lace looks like she has chest hair... I'm sorry to say this....

i think it look like chest hair initially, but when i looked carefully - oh it's lace. haha. and i thought it's just me, thank god there are people out there who thought it was chest hair, like me.

The lace is ok, but the buttons just make it so unique. I would love to own shorts like those.
