A surprising spring weather is hitting Barcelona right now, just in time to enjoy my last days of holidays which include long walks to the beach with paella and wine on the side. One of my favourite places to eat close to the beach is La Mar Salada, with a wide variety of paella & wine, a lovely terrace & pretty tableware. A full post with recommended places to eat in BCN will come soon.
I’ve just recently added this denim jacket to my wardrobe and I have to say that has been worth every single penny; I sized up as the idea was to be able to wear it with chunky sweaters or just a t shirt, versatile in every season, I even use it below big wool coats. Definitely a staple item that everyone should have; looking forward to spring to add a couple more in different washes.
The sweater has been inherited from my mom, she bought it who knows how many years ago in Uruguay when we were on holidays. My dad’s family used to have a house in Piriapolis so Uruguay is a country I have visited quite often in my childhood. This particular brand, Manos del Uruguay, is non profit organization that has been giving work to women in rural areas of the country since 1968. They work mostly with wool and as you can tell the quality is supreme.
