I’ve been in Granada for 5 months now and I couldn’t be happier with the return of sweater weather.
And why exactly am I so happy about this?
Well… one thing that I wasn’t expecting from Granada: cold winter nights (sometimes dipping below freezing temperatures….. eeeeek). Being in the south of Spain, I assumed that it would be all rainbows and sunshine – partially wrong. While it is hot and sunny in the summer, Granada’s winters get frisky cold, especially when the sun sets. This is because of its location under the Sierra Nevada, the nearby mountains known for its ski resort. Due to Granada’s unique proximity to the mountains, Granada gets significantly colder than the surrounding parts of Spain.
ANYWAYS, the weather is finally easing up, AKA I can finally take off the winter coat and jazz up the streets with my sweater weather wardrobe. The buttoned down sweater that I’m wearing now is something that I picked up from an open-air market in Berlin. For only 10 euros, I knew it was a calling. With just enough color for my liking, I went with an all black outfit to make the strands of color on the sweater pop. Also, I just happened to have a yellow belt that matched my sweater, working for a great addition!
As someone who loves her black clothes, I love spicing it up with statement pieces. In this outfit, the job is done by my new, bang-for-my-buck sweater and my yellow Marimekko belt. Marimekko is a Finnish brand that is known for its use of bright colors and bold patterns. The brand makes some awesome statement pieces that I 1000% approve! (I got this belt while I was doing a summer exchange program in Tampere, Finland in 2011. For more information about the scholarship that funded my experience in Finland click here).
From the girl that’s hoping that sweater weather is here to stay, your’s truly,
