Fashion in España

As some of you may know from my blog post about bucket lists, I’ve been living a dream of mine for the past month walking El Camino de Santiago throughout Spain with my older brother. Now, the rest of my family has joined me for a little road-tripping around the country, and thankfully my mom brought me some stylish clothes to wear (I’ve never been so excited to put on clean clothes in my life). Whenever I travel, one of the first things I notice is the fashion – I mean duh, how could I not?!

BUT then I came to college and met my roomie/photographer/partner in crime Piper and found out that she likes photoshoots too…for no particular reason other than that they’re fun. Now, she’s converted me to loving photoshoots as a pastime instead of just something I have to do for my blog (I can neither confirm nor deny that we have a running list of shoots we want to do over the next year…). I am now convinced that photoshoots are not just an activity but a way of life. Am I being dramatic? Yes. But are photoshoots good for the soul? Absolutely, and here are seven reasons to explain why.
