On the third and final day of our trip we decided to spur on our creative curiosity by visiting the Picasso Museum situated down the narrow side streets of a quaint area called La Ribera. While the museum itself was expectedly intriguing, providing great insight into Picasso’s early influences, we loved getting lost in the authentic shops and cafes! We did happen to come across a lovely little bakery where one of us could have probably eaten everything in the shop window given half the chance (luckily they were dragged away before any serious damage could be done), but it just goes to show the great things you can find when you’re lost!
After grabbing some lunch we wandered into this spooky yet charming masquerade shop (which very much puts any costume shop in london to shame). The day was a little chillier so this shorts, floaty top and blazer combination was ideal. *Tip* this more casual black blazer with 3/4 sleeves (from Zara) is great for pairing with a casual outfit to look instantly polished. The wide brimmed hat works to do the same (as well as hiding a bad hair day), adding a classic and quirky touch to a standard outfit.
The remainder of the day saw us follow our artistic instincts to Museu Nacional d’art de Catalunya which not only housed classics by Gaudi and Miro but also a lot artists previously unknown to us. Unfortunately the modern art exhibition was in the middle of renovation (good to keep in mind if you’re thinking of visiting), however the modern classics were just as inspiring! We have to say that the actual building (along with magic fountain in front) lent itself to some great pictures and great views of the city!
