The two of us have a somewhat lingering love affair with Spain. We’ve flown to Spain over a dozen times in the past couple of years and explored Seville’s orange groves, white Andalucian villages glistening in the summer sun, its quirky cities, and occasionally volcanic landscape. Every time we visit, we fall a little more in love with the country. Whether it be the animated smiles of locals or languid siestas, Spain is sheer perfection.

Our favourite part? The sun-hazed alleys and plazas populated by tapas bars and local markets. That is why we shot these photos in the sleepy by-lanes of Valencia, a bustling sea-side town in Eastern Spain.  Valencia, a quintessential European town, calls for quintessential European outfits no?

The European summer is notoriously unpredictable and we happened to be in Valencia on a slightly chilly summer’s day. I opted for a form-fitting maxi dress in a thick jersey fabric. The material and length of the dress kept me from feeling cold. The abstract print of this dress reminds me of a blank canvas with splodges of black on it. I did not want to overwhelm the sumptuous print with bright accessories, so I chose an understated gold clutch bag, belt, and bracelet.

Vid opted for light blue chinos and a striped city blazer. Pastel-coloured blazers are a staple for European summers – perfect to ward off occasional chills while still looking summery. They work equally well with shirts and tees. Take a look:

That’s the story of how we put together outfits for a breezy summer day. Simple, fuss-free, ideal for soaking the romance of the European summer, and guzzling endless pitchers of sangria 🙂

  1. The fotos look great! But I get the feeling that vidit is shy n blushing from all the ‘being in front of the camera’

  2. Omg! Such amazing pics, and u guys make such a stylish n great couple! 🙂 LOVED the dress Savi, and Vid’s blazer is SO chic! 🙂
    And wow, spain looks so beautiful 🙂

    1. Thanks a ton for leaving such a sweet comment Ramya 🙂 We have loads of post on Spain lined up for August and September

  3. Some great tips for what to wear in Spain. Although in the Canary Islands, if you wore such attire you might well be considered positively overdressed. Especially in some of our more out-of-the-way beaches.

    1. Haha Matthew, I agree. I love that nobody bats an eyelid on seeing people wear swimsuits to supermarkets in Spain.

  4. What a lovely maxi dress. They are always so easy to wear. Style it up with a few statement pieces & you’re ready to hit the night!
    Spain is def one of my loves. Have been studying in Almeria and it was one of my best life experiences. 🙂

    xo

    1. Thanks Luchessa 🙂 Maxi dresses are my weakness – I have so many of them and wear them all the time
