Spain Travel Diary ~ Cross Stitch & Stripy Walls in Alicante

BELLE & BUNTY NEEDLE & THREAD CROSS STITCH

We sit writing this, back from sunny Spain where these photos were taken, in London where the clocks have changed and the sun is shining. HUZZAH. Spring is really feeling like it’s springing and that means one thing: finally we can justify new warmer weather purchases. Is it just us or up until now, buying anything remotely summery when it’s still been extremely pretty chilly has seemed a bit silly so lets hope that the good weather is here to stay to warrant the shopping. Any excuse, huh?!

So lets talk Summer wardrobes.

If there’s one thing thats surely going to catch our eyes then these embroidered pieces by Needle & Thread are it. We are both big fans of Mexican embroidered pieces, owning a few vintage styles between us and these cross stitch cotton top and dress feel like a more modern take on that look.

{M}excellent.

The pretty colour palette has just the right shades to showcase the delicate stitch work but also is very handy in that they work with blue denim {like a dream} aswell as warmer pink and tan shades. A blouse like this is a no brainer with a lightweight culotte {dress up/dress down with shoes, you know the deal} or equally we’ll be wearing it with denim cut offs, all Summer long. We love the city feel of this dress with a slight heeled sandal and smarter handbag, liked we have styled it here, but wouldn’t it just make the chicest beach coverup too?!

Currently scouring online for deals to Tulum and dreaming of Margaritas and palm trees, but until its booked let’s not Taco ’bout it and marvel at this awesome Stripey wall we discovered while in Alicante Old Town.
