Normcore

normcore

Normcore… apparently that’s a trend now. Good news. Great news, actually. I mean, beeing normal is finally trendy! The Guardian calls it the next fashion movement and The New York Times asks whether it is a massive in-joke. Well, I don’t know, but weren’t these Moschino looks also joke? Sometimes I don’t get the irony of fashion… But the truth is that now we all get to be trendy without thinking too much. Just wear your jeans, tee and Converse and you’ll be an it girl. I’m feeling it right now!!! Isn’t that the absolute effortlessly cool?

With VIP Blogger Julie Sariñana working with /on flip flops this Summer (she was the face, or should I say feet? of Havaianas), mom jeans and sneakers  all over the blogosphere, Normcore seems a reality. Maybe we have to thank the great minds of Silicon Valley, the financial crisis or the crazy world of fashion but hey, I’m all for this relaxed trend.

Now, those days when I feel pajamas-all-day but I have to go to the office, I just can wear the first thing that I find in my closet (but, really, the first thing: that usually is H&M jeans and an old black sweater) and I will be making a fashion statement! Isn’t that great? I’ve been a cool girl this whole time and I didn’t know it!!

What about you? Are you an it girl too? Meaning: are you wearing jeans and a tee just right now? We are SO cool!!!

Moodboard Amsterdam

19 Aug

Amsterdam_moodboard_2
Last week we almost booked a trip to Amsterdam. We wanted to do something spontaneous, so we decided we would book a hotel for the weekend, jump on a train and enjoy the city! Of course that didn’t happen. I just can’t be spontaneous. No hotels available, problems with the trains… I hate being spontaneous but when I try the universe stops me!  Anyway! Amsterdam is one of those cities that we want to visit but apparently we can’t, like Stockholm or New York. Oh well… we’ll just keep trying! Maybe next Spring? I can totally picture us on our super cool bikes, smelling the tulips, wandering through the Canals, eating Gouda… sigh! ;)

What about you? Are you spontaneous when booking your trips and holidays? Or are you a control freak like me?

Cádiz reflections

Cadiz_Photo_Diary_2014_2

Boys playing football on Santa María del Mar beach.

Cádiz is a city that wakes up and heads to the beach. There, she spents the whole day, playing on the sand, watching families gather around sandwiches and chips. Loud and sweaty. But as the sun goes down, the city takes a shower and turns silver. Sunsets with pink accents, quiet dark corners and sweet flavours. Every Summer, the same routines.

Virtual blog tour

18 Aug

theslowpace_virtual_tour2

Today’s post is something different from everything we’ve done before. Today we are going to open up and speak about our creative process and how The slow pace works. Spotted Cow, one of the Wandering cows (and one of the nicest people we’ve met through the blog) asked us to participate in this project and we couldn’t say no. We don’t usually like this kind of things but since we all struggle to create content, I thought it would be really interesting to read about how creative minds work and share tips and bits. So this is going to be a looooong post. You better grab something to drink, cuddle up in your sofa and… let’s go!

mmm… Monday! Orecchiette with home made tomato sauce and sopressa vicentina

18 Aug

orecchiette_with_sopressa_3This is the kind of recipe we usually prepare (or should we say improvise?) during a lazy rainy Sunday. You will need just a few basic ingredients and no measures, no rush…basically no rules. Just a little bit of nice music while you prepare it and lots of love for home made slow cooked food.

Madrid revisited

14 Aug

Madrid_Photo_Diary_2014_16
Time flies. It’s been almost a month since we visited Madrid! Sometimes we miss this city terribly, that’s why when we come back we never know wether to visit new shops, restaurants, etc, or come back to our usual favourites. Well, this time we stopped for a coffee in our favourite café, we had lunch in our favourite market and stayed in a new hotel that we wanted to check for a long time. Here you have some tips and pictures, if you’d like to see…

One-piece swimsuit, bikini… or nothing at all?

13 Aug

beach2

Have you ever been to Formentera? We spent a couple of beautiful days in this peaceful and extremely gorgeous island three months ago. During our stay we discovered the most amazing beach, which became immediately our favourite beach in the world. It was not a hidden cove, actually it was very close to Ses Illetes, the most visited and photographed beach in Formentera, but it was almost empty, I would even say it was lonely. Just a few couples, a family over there… but it was so quiet and peaceful… and then we realized no one was wearing swimsuits. Yep. Nudist territory. Oh well, we laid out our towels to enjoy the most glorious day under the sun. But after a while I took off my swimsuit. Say what?

We need this: Mango

13 Aug

mango3You know that we are longing for Autumn… but how can we not when we see images like these? Don’t you want to wrap yourself in a comfy cardigan, feel the cold in your rosy cheeks and enjoy a hot strong cup of coffe? I personally can’t wait. The new Mango lookbook is so inviting… it simply makes you want to buy everything and live in an eternal Autumn.
