WIWW: Preppy in Plaids

Hello with a pout! ;)


Here are some what-I-wore photos taken on a day trip to Córdoba(from Málaga) last December after Christmas. I don´t like going to the south of Spain during summer because the heat can be soooo unbearable out there but I welcome anytime sunny Andalusia in winter. ;) By the way, you´ll know that you´ve arrived in the south when you see orange trees in fruit bloom almost everywhere. The hubz liked taking a picture of me everytime we´re near one and so expect more orange tree backdrops soon, lol!


A pose on the main door of the Mezquita, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most famous monuments of the Spanish south. I´ve visited this place about three years ago(photo here) and it´s one of my favorite go to places to return and visit, ever!


These burgundy top and chambray  are becoming a usual pairing as you can see in my previous posts last year while the plaid skirt is old. You know me, I recycle my clothes. Besides, they say plaids are going to be the next thing for spring/summer so I´m giving you the heads up right now! ;)


I´ve always wanted those jackets with faux leather sleeves and so when I found this varsity jacket on the sale rack ( lucky me!), I never let go of it until I got home. It has all the things that I´m liking right now, the burgundy color which is becoming an autumn/winter classic, it´s quite toasty and the cute skull detail which I love!


Leaving you with a photo taken at the ruins of Medina Azahara, a former medieval palace-city built by the Caliphate of Córdoba in the year 900. It´s located in the outskirts of Córdoba but it was worth the visit.
