I have been looking endlessly for these two pieces to complete my winter wardrobe, and I was so delighted to find them before flying to freezing DC. I cant tell you how much money I have invested in endless over the knee boots, but have always been dissapointed that after a few times of wearing them they suddenly dont hold on to the knee anymore and just fall! So this time I decided to invest a little more and bought myself these beautiful Giuseppe Zanotti ones, and they arent just beautiful these boots are so comfortable, which is exactly what I need when Im running after my toddler or walking around pushing her stroller and trying not to slip my coffee, you know the usual:) It has been a while since I have worn heels on a day to day basis, so you can imagine how much Im loving it. To complete this look, I found this gorgeous Zara faux suede long coat, which they also have it in a beautiful beige color! I hope you love this look as much as I do:) Besos!

The weather in Barcelona has been amazing (when isn’t it actually?) besides the rare two or three days of cold, we always have sunny days, and a little cooler evenings/nights. Therefore a biker jacket is a must in this city, but it is also a basic we should all have in our closets! I have my all time favorite Burberry one my hubby got me last year for our anniversary, but for this season I wanted a change so (after a lot of research) I got this beautiful brown suede effect jacket from Zara! But before finding this one I went of course on my usual online never ending search trying to find the right one, so I have decided to share the ones I found with you all!

I still remember the first H&M collaborations, such as Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney (some of my favorite designers), I lived in London at the time and madness arose everywhere! But this time for the Kenzo collaboration, in comparison with previous collaborations especially last year’s Balmain, there wasn’t chaos nor long crazy lines here in Barcelona. This year’s capsule collection was a more civilized scene than in previous years! Which is why I am glad I went in and snagged a few styles, like these two Tshirts. The one thing I will say is that the sizes for these are a bit big, there were only Small and Medium left no more XS by the time I got in, and the Small is more like a Medium. Here is how I styled a more casual day look with the White option, and the more evening look with the Black option. For the daily look I chose denim and my new white leather chucks, which are also a bit bigger in comparison to the canvas option, so I got a half a size smaller. For the evening look, I chose to pair it with these Zara flare pants, and my new Jimmy Choo velvet bordeaux platforms, which are so comfortable for the height that they have. PS those of you who follow me on Instagram were probably aware of my haircut, but for those who were not now you get to see it! It is a much needed change for my hair, and for my time management (taking care of long hair is time consuming when you have a toddler to care for:) I hope you like it!
Taking care of my body has always been such a huge part of my daily habits, and routine. I started practicing Yoga and Pilates at the age of 23, I practiced dance and did as much cardio as I could get (most of the time spending two to three hours). I had a lot of time to take care of myself, that I now don’t have anymore, since I am a mother. I have tried getting back into the swing of things, from time to time going to Zumba classes, or some boot camp classes (where I actually hurt myself the last time I went). Which is why when I heard of Amira Training Club once I got back to Barcelona, I couldn’t resist but going. I had tried Barre a few years ago in DC, but I never really got into it. Amira has a way to inspire you in her classes, not only because of her incredible dancen’s body, and the way she lifts her legs with such grace and ease (I definitely look anything but graceful, but slowly getting there). Ever since I have started taking her classes, I feel stronger, more agile, lighter, and simply motivated to take care of my mind body and soul. It sin’t just the technique, it is everything about the space as well, big windows with natural light, greenery when you look at the beautiful courtyard, the other women who are making time to come into the classes and do something positive for themselves, the other classes such as Zumba, or Pilates, but still my favorite is Fitness Ballet with Amira. If you are in Barcelona please try out one of Amira’s classes, and tell me if you do! I will keep posting more about it! Till then I hope you enjoy these few photos…
