Flyday Fridays: Preppy and Gray in Bilbao

Hello, Friday!


Last weekend, I had the chance to go to a travel fair held at the BEC in Bilbao. It was cold in the early morning and so I wore layers and debuted my  light gray faux leather jacket and this plaid shirt in blue and blue green, both of which I´m dying to wear but never had the occasion to.


I´ve been favoring the preppy look lately maybe because the formula is so simple: printed/plain button down + pants/jeans + light sweater on top and you´re ready in a snap. Just throw in a light jacket and off you go! :)


I wasn´t able to take pictures of the city because we´re so busy going from one travel booth to another and sampling cheeses and chorizos in the food section but here are a few shots which I took a few years ago when we went here for a visit to Ikea:

 and here´s a dramatic photo of Bilbao´s skyline right before a rainstorm:

Here´s one last look of my preppy outfit right before I end the post. I mixed varying shades of gray and blue in this look. So casual, no? ;)

top, jeans, bag- Zara, jacket, ring- H&M

Have a fun weekend, y´all! :)

Cute and easy look for taking in the city. I loved the Bilbao photos too as I've never been there. Always nice to see places like that.
