A few weeks ago, I was tagged by Marije of the blog Plus een Beetje to answer the questions of the I Wish Tag. It was a nice challenge I can say 🙂 and because it is my birthday today, it is the perfect opportunity to fill in this I Wish Tag!
As a photographer, I have saved so many pictures in the archives from last years. A new section on this website!
It is a waste to let them lying around. So from time to time, I will show you my Photography | From the archives. This can vary from cities, architecture, fashion, at home…
Last week you could read my adventures in Barcelona. Today I will share part 2 of my Barcelona photo diary.
Because of the terrible weather, we visited the sea aquarium. It was lovely to see so many kinds of fishes and the sharks. I could spend hours watching these fishes with so many colors and sizes. This Museum is a perfect getaway for nature lovers and when it is raining 🙂
In the afternoon we went to The Design Museum which included a fashion department. I love to photograph fashion so this was perfect. The theme was “Dressing the body. Silhouettes and fashion (1550-2015)” like they say on the website: The exhibition Dressing the Body sets out to show how clothes modify the appearance of the body by way of actions that have alternately tended to compress it and liberate it, from the sixteenth century to the present.
A cultural and wonderful day which we ended at the Aperol Spritz Bar near the port of Barcelona.
The sun is back and the plan is to explore the Gràcia district. In the past, this was a village that was later added to the city. A village with a cozy atmosphere. At Placa de la Vila de Gràcia we spend some time in the sun and have a delicious lunch. We walk back through Passeig de Gracia and arrive again at Place Reial for a drink.
This was a relaxed last day in Barcelona that we celebrated with a nice dinner and the fountain show at Font Magica in the evening
The next day it was time to leave for our next destination: Alicante! Next week, I will publish my photo diary of our 5 days in Alicante.
My impression of Barcelona is very good! A city that I didn’t know because I had to look a lot on Google Maps. We had 5 days in Barcelona so we could do everything at ease. It is after all holiday! In advance, I had read a bit about Barcelona, but not too much because I do not like that 🙂 and love the surprises a new city has for me.
Have you ever been to Barcelona? If so, what did you like the most?
When I was in Barcelona, I discovered a shop “Mulaya” and saw a lot of velvet pieces. Many years ago, I wore a velvet blazer and I really liked this trend. But I remember, that I also had a few difficulties wearing this material. How do you combine velvet and what are the do’s and dont’s?

The Fall Velvet Trend is really back. The fabric gets a major role in the clothing industry and you see in the shops and in the streets. But how do you wear velvet?
If you wear a dark color velvet, combine it with a light color. Like a light blue shirt and simple jeans, let your velvet blazer bang! If you want to wear light velvet, wear it under a vest or a jacket that is darker. This makes the velvet classic.
Do you prefer to play safely? Then is a black blazer a good option. Choose for black velvet and make sure it is matte.
Keep the rest of your outfit a bit quieter and to go for basics. Of course, you can pack up with a variety of fabrics and combinations for a night, but keep the overall simple and pay attention to your velvet piece!
This also applies to wearing velvet accessories. Velvet is very striking and therefore quickly becomes the centerpiece of your outfit. Stay true to this by tapping your look with understated accessories. Choose for delicate, not too much and not too big accessories.
Do you love this Fall Velvet Trend?
