Yesterday was pretty amazing - Chris and I took a trip out to Montserrat (whose name literally means "jagged mountain" in Catalan) and spent the whole day hiking up and down the mountain's highest peak. It's a pretty incredible place, and although we took the first train there and the last train back, there is still so much we didn't get to explore! I suppose we'll just have to go back someday...
I'm still struggling to find better ways to wear this vintage button-down, although it was pretty much the perfect thing to wear hiking. I absolutely love the color and print, and it's super soft and comfy, but I think the fit is less than ideal. It falls somewhere in between actually fitting me and being truly oversized, so the final effect is less "effortlessly oversized" and more "pajama top." I'd hoped that tucking the front in might help keep things a little more tailored, but I'm afraid it just ended up underscoring the boxiness. Next time I think I'll have to try layering it under something a bit more fitted (like I did here) and leaving it untucked.
We took about a gazillion photos of the beautiful landscape and semi-ruined 15th century buildings (the mountain is still home to a Benedictine monastery), but here are just a few of my favorites.
