Flyday: Fridays: Mellow Yellow and Florals


2014-04-18 11.50.31

For my regular Flyday Friday post readers, this look might be familiar to you. It´s the same look that I wore here and I just put on a mustard colored cardigan just before going out of the hotel to visit a quaint town called Barcelos in Portugal during the Holy Week.

I can´t get enough of Portugal. Everytime we travel out of Spain but not spend a lot, we always go to Portugal. Everything is much cheaper there especially the food and as for shopping (especially shoe shopping), I almost always shop there because the stores have my size(I have small feet) and it´s way much cheaper too than in Spain! I think I´m very blessed to be where I am now when it comes to travelling because I have Portugal on my left and France on right. Isn´t that great? ;)

Anyway, we visited this medium sized town called Barcelos made famous for it´s ¨crowing roasted rooster¨  legend which you can read here. It has actually the same legend with La Rioja´s Sto. Domingo de la Calzada  in Spain.Only that in Sto Domingo de la Calzada, they maintained the tradition by keeping a hen and a rooster inside the church at all times. :)

Just to show you that I´m not kidding, here´s a HUGE sculpture of a rooster made of iron in front of the museum in Barcelos and...

So here´s another must-see place to visit once you find yourself in Portugal. By the way, the hubz took these photos of me at the ruins of an old castle just beside an old church on a small hill.

Love the floral paired with the mustard. What a great combo. Not everyone can wear that color but it looks so fantastic on you. Portugal looks amazing! Thanks for linking up today.
