Nana Goes To Spain...

I was so darn cold when I woke up this morning...I guess that is what happens when you fall asleep with the windows open and the morning temp dips to 38 degrees...that I decided to throw on tights today.  I was determined not to wear them again until next fall, but the thought of making it through the day, where the high was going to be 42, bare legged, made me shiver!

Today's outfit photos were taken in the courtyard of my Nana's condo, Barcelona...I love taking photos there, makes me think of her...  She has been gone now for about a year and a half now, but we always use Nana's house as a central meeting location...when we need to meet half way and drop off the kids...when we want to leave a car somewhere so we can travel as a group. Random memory... I was hiding under the kitchen table as a little girl of about 7, listening to my mom and Nana talking about how her and Papa were going to move to Barcelona.  so, I asked someone where Barcelona was...they said Spain.  So, I was freaking out telling everyone that they could never move away!  Then someone told me that this Barcelona was a condo in Skokie...ha!  I was very close to my Nana, spending a lot of time with her growing up.  I think she would appreciate it that we will always refer to this central spot as Nana's house.

Aw. That's sweet. A nice way to keep your Nana present.

And I've been away but weren't you guys pretty warm just recently? It must be hard going back to such cold temperatures!

The whole time I kept thinking wow she's in Spain...jealous. But at least with your Barcelona that's a lot more accessible than the one in Spain. :) Love the jacket!

Love this look! That skirt is awesome and I adore all of your arm accessories!

I'm sorry it was so chilly! We're going to have a low of 38 tonight, too. :/ Ugh! I wish this weather would just make up its mind!

I'm loving the red blazer. It has gotten cold and rainy here and I'm not pleased.

Definitely didn't enjoy the dip back into cold weather today! Love the punch of color the red blazer gives this outfit.

And wow, look at how green the grass has gotten in Barcelona!

Sorry about the cold, I hope it warms up for you soon! I love this outfit, especially that bright blazer! I remember seeing that in Target and wanting it, now I want to go back and get it!

Tiffany said...

Awww, that's really sweet!

Don't you hate when the weather can't make up it's mind and you get a teaser of warm weather only to get cold again? I hope it warms up for you really soon!

I love the polka dotted sleeves on your jacket!

I too am determined not to put tights back on until the fall... but with the drops in temps I guess it just means I'll be wearing more pants.

Love the red blazer!
