I’m going to share a secret that’s not so secret, I LOVE anything blue or purple. I LOVE it even more if you combined the two colors together. Maybe it’s because they’re cool colors and exude calmness, which I am not. But I have always loved purple and blue. When I buy clothes I have to tell myself to stop gravitating towards blue or purple items. I’m usually good about it but sometimes I’m not successful.
I know you’re saying hey it’s fall, why are you sharing an outfit post with shorts. Because I it still is summer… especially if you’re in the Bay Area, it’s an Indian summer. It’s cooled down this week with all the rain passing through, but it’s supposed to heat up next week, getting up to the high 70s to mid 80s. But sadly I won’t enjoy the weather because I’m heading to the UK next week for work where it’s supposed to be chilly and rainy. (cue sound: whammmmmp whaaaammmppp. you’re in the uk, stop complaining!) Usually by this time I’m ready for fall and to take out my boots and chunky sweaters, but for some reason this year I’m not. I think I’m still in love with the vacation we took a month ago and the association with summer and summer clothing.
Anyhow, while in Barcelona, I originally started the day wearing just a white tank top with my purple chino shorts from Banana Republic because it was supposed to be hot. We went up to Mount Tibadabo to overlook the city and it got a bit chilly while at the elevated level, so I took my chambray button up out of the backpack and put it on to keep myself warm. I LOVE how the outfit came together. I love the color combo.
One top of Mount Tibadabo, overlooking Barcelona. LOVE THIS CITY! Do you see the Mediterranean Sea in the back? ❤

I think there may be another outfit post featuring these shorts. With that outfit I practiced colorblocking and it was THE perfect summer outfit for colorblocking. LOVE!
