Flyday Fridays: Mirador Azpirotz

Hello from one of the Spanish basque mountains!

These are almost two month old pics, oops! I know, I know. I´m a procrastinator, am I ? One Saturday afternoon, the hubz asked me to hop in the car with him to one of those ¨don´t ask me til we get there¨ trips until we ended up on one of the mountains. As usual, I was in my tattered ´jammies¨ and so I grabbed the first thing that I saw when I opened my closet door and this was it:

Anyway, as we drove from one valley to another, we found  this vantage point/overlooking by the roadside called Mirador Aspirotz. We stopped, got down a little bit and... wow! The view was so green, alive and so serene, it completely took my breath away. Down there below lies a small town nestled between the verdant valleys. It must be nice to live in there, to be one with nature and to breathe fresh unpolluted air everyday! :)

Later, we stopped by Leitza, one of the typical basque villages in the heart of the Spanish basque country. How cute are those red flower pots outside of the windows and on the small terrace! Beautiful, isn´t it?

Back to what I wore, I was so bloated that day ( just look at my super round face, hahaha!) and so I wore something comfortable A light colored stripe top paired with a dark circle skirt to balance the look. The red orange bag was the last thing that I grabbed on our way to the door. It´s a good thing that it blended well with my top, lol!

Oh my goodness the pictures of the mountains and that cute town are STUNNING!! And I know exactly what you mean about wearing pijamas and then having your husband say "lets go somewhere", often there is no time to dress you just have to grab and go. But I must say the outfit you came up with is very cute!

Beautiful day thank you for sharing. And don't worry about it being over two months ago....life gets in the way of blogging!

I tell you you look great in skater-style skirts. J'adore that rainbow-striped sweater. And gorgeous places and pictures, as always.
