{guest post} - long distance loving.

Feliz Viernes! {In other words, happy Friday!} Since my bff, Jillian, is galavanting around Spain, I'm here with a perfect outfit for a touristy day in Barcelona. I am thrilled she's getting some quality time with H before their big move next month! I just wish I could have fit in one of their suitcases ;) 


1) This easy, breezy Diane von Furstenberg Emsley Dress would be an ideal piece for sightseeing--with the long sleeves and the modest length, it is appropriate for any destination.
2) House of Harlow 1960 always has fabulous bold pieces and these Antler Button Stud Earrings stay true to form. They are also versatile enough for Jillian to wear with other outfits on their trip!
3) + 4) You can never have enough travel guides, so I included Rick Steves Spain 2012 and Fodor's Spain 2011 to help Jillian and H find hidden gems across Barcelona :)
5) The crossbody bag is a fantastic way to stay stylish on the go. Though I love wearing backpacks {so dorky, forgive me!}, I think Jillian could rock this Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Flap Pouchette while roaming Barcelona.
6) These Vera Wang Lavender Label Bailey Penny Elastic Topline Flats would certainly make a long day of sightseeing less painful! 
7) Accessories go a long way in making an outfit come together--and this Annie Hammer Brown Bubble Cuff does just that! I just adore the deep brown leather paired with the bright gold of the "bubbles".

What are your fashion must-haves while you're on the go?

Be sure to stop by my blog, {long distance loving}, to see a slew of other dreamy looks :)
Many thanks to Jillian for having little ol' me fill in while she's gone--it's such an honor to be here!

Enjoy your weekend! xoxo {av}
