On our way back from Real Alcazar, the royal palace, I stumbled across a charming boutique in the heart of Seville. I was still engrossed in the splendour of the palace’s architecture, art and garden grounds. Ringing in my ears was the melodious Baroque style tune played by the Fountain Organ (so bummed that I didn’t get to video it but there’s one on Youtube), one of only four in the world that made splendid music by hydraulic mechanisms. Everything at the Real Alcazar had me in awe.
A sweet store with contrasting, bright designs snapped me out of the trance. Trees totally should double as clothes stands! Interesting colour combinations caught my eye: magenta and yellow, blue and white, and the favourite, pink and green. The dresses at Coosy were perfect for cocktail parties and weddings, but they were a bit high maintenance for the sake of this holiday. What made me swoon was this cute gingham romper. Perfect for walking around in the Mediterranean climate, it’s easy to wear and care for. To wash I just gave it a bath in the tub and rung it dry. It was mine in a flash and we’ve been inseparable ever since.
