Since I felt like the last way I wore this sweater wasn't really helping me kick the gray weather funk, I decided to try it again for our last day in Spain and see what else I could do with it. I also wanted to experiment a little with wearing my Toms in a different way. I'm always a little hesitant to wear tights with shoes that cover up more of my foot, but I always love how Amanda rocks the tights with brogues and sneakers, so I thought I'd at least give it a shot. While I'm sure it would help if I were as unfairly leggy as she is, I think the end result wasn't nearly as bad as I'd feared, although I think I like each half of this outfit more than I like the whole. Something about the proportions seems a little off to me - I'd like to try the sweater-skirt combo with boots, or do the Toms-tights combo with a top tucked in to the high waist of the skirt.

Editing these photos wound up being incredibly entertaining - it was super windy in Sevilla yesterday, which resulted in a bunch of ridiculously squinty, hair-blowing-every-whichaway, goofy-ass photos. Let's have a pretty party, shall we?

Yeah, that center photo made me laugh out loud when I opened it up.

We were a little sad to leave Spain (goodbye, cañas! goodbye, manchego! I think I'll miss you most of all, espinacas con garbanzos!), but I am of course super-psyched about our new digs. I can't wait to share more of our travels!
