When we arrived in Seville yesterday, our hostess informed us that it was el día más frío del año ...or, "the coldest day of the year." I think we've been spoiled by all the fair weather we had in Barcelona and Granada - it was only in the forties and I was still shivering in my warmest sweater! I managed to grab a few photos with my coat off, but there was no way I was parting with my gloves.

I haven't been a big wearer of printed t-shirts since high school, but I couldn't resist this little fox tee at Zara the other day. The print is really soft and has a lot of depth, and it doesn't show up well in photos but the fabric is made with flax, so it has a very fine overall texture to it. I think maybe I'm just so starved for cute fuzzy animals in my life that I just end up wearing them on my clothes.

Lately I am constantly gravitating to old, elaborate doors. I point them out all the time, and it seems like each door in Spain is trying to be more picturesque than the last - so much so that Chris has dubbed this phenomenon "door envy" and it's become our shorthand for pointing out a really great door. This one was just to a typical apartment building in the barrio Santa Cruz, but I loved the scalloped and punched gold kickplate at the bottom.
