Valencia + Jávea











Sweater: Topshop, Jeans: H&M, Boots: Naughty Monkey

Happy New Year lovelies!! I hope you all had a beautiful New Year's celebration :) I practiced the Spanish tradition of "las uvas" or "the grapes," where you have to eat 12 grapes when the ball drops. It was quite stressful because you have to do it in a very rapid succession, and so I only got through 10, lol, but I still consider that pretty good for my first try! We had dinner with a bunch of the family members, popped champagne, and then went out in the city, it was a wonderful experience :)

Anyways, here are some photos from my brief 2 hour stop in Valencia, and little more of Jávea too. I wish I could have spent more time in Valencia, it was so beautiful and lively! We walked around the city center so I photographed town hall, still decorated, and we went into this lovely old cathedral (also pictured). While we walked, we stopped for some traditional Horchatas. The traditional Valencian Horchata is made from tigernuts, water, and sugar, and it is seriously delicious!! We also picked up some handmade Turrón, which I'll show you guys in another post: it's a dessert made of almonds and olive oil and has become my Achilles heel because it's so damn good!

While Valencia was chilly, we returned back to Jávea for another day where it was warmer, as you can see. Here, I am wearing this great sweater from Topshop. It's pretty warm, and I love the jeweled detailing! The detailing makes the sweater perfect for any dinner occasion, and keeps you warm and cozy, too! I paired it with my acid wash H&M jeans and my Naughty Monkey grey suede boots for an easy and put-together look :) 

I'm in Santander now until tomorrow when we leave again, so I'll give you guys another post Friday with more of my travels!
