After a short week in London and detour to Paris, we flew to Barcelona where we’d plant ourselves for two whole weeks. Such a lovely feeling after all that travelling. Waiting for us in Barcelona was a cosy apartment that we booked through AirBnB. This experience was new to us because we’re use to 4+ star hotels with room service and housekeeping. Although now as a family, a fully equipped apartment where we could just be and cook our own meals was more important. Plus it’s far more economical do it this way when there’s a few of you.

I must say, the place we booked looked a little tired (unlike its photographs) but otherwise it was perfect for our first stay in Barcelona. It was cosy, had lovely views of the street from our little balcony, was a short walk to La Ramblas (main strip) and close to public transport. Coffee shops and the famous market were also in close proximity.

Without showing too much of the apartment,  I thought it would be nice to do a style shoot one morning on the balcony before we headed out for the day. My little girl popped on my hat (her choice by the way) and joined in on the fun too. The photographs were a little shady due to the lighting but I absolutely loved how they turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think of our little outfits.

Next post will be things to do in Barcelona as family.

  1. Beauty. I am always so skeptical about renting apartments just because i would rather avoid surprises but it is always an adventure and if it saves money, why not? Now your two ladies are looking so fly. You baby girl made the right choice with that hat. Love your outfit. I have been looking for similar shorts like yours. They look good. Thanks for sharing.
