Roman in Mérida, Spain


Some of you probably know by now that from time to time we go to Mérida, a small town in southwestern Spain, my hubby's hometown. Mérida was like Rome of the Iberian peninsula in the ancient Roman times, so I thought, why not wear something "Roman". The obvious choice was a white dress, I chose this one which I love because it easily adapts to any season and occasion (click here to see how I styled it for a fancy winter event). The other must have for this look are gladiator sandals, I bought mine recently at Mango shop at the airport and it was a matter of life or death haha. I was rushing for a flight yet I had to buy these sandals so I entered the shop, "scanned" it in a few seconds, saw the sandals, tried them on and rushed to buy them. Even the girl who worked there gave me this strange look, I was probably looking a bit insane :p They are very affordable, too. I also love love these! So that's pretty much the look that I chose for seeing hubby's family and friends and for a walk through this charming town that has a special place in my heart :)

Algunos de vosotros ya sabéis que a menudo vamos a Mérida, la ciudad natal de mi marido. Mérida se encuentra en el suroeste de España y fue un sitio muy importante en la época romana, por lo cual pensé que sería divertido llevar algo con un toque "romano". La prenda que primero viene en la mente es un vestido blanco. Yo elegí el que llevo hoy porque es muy versátil y lo he llevado en mil ocasiones (aquí podéis ver como se adapta a un look elegante de invierno). Otra prenda que es "obligatoria" son unas sandalías romanas. Yo me compré las mías en la tienda de Mango del aeropuerto. Fue gracioso porque tenía mucha prisa para llegar al vuelo, pero primero tuve que entrar en la tienda, "escanearla" en unos segundos, probarme las sandalias e ir corriendo a pagarlas. Inluso la chica que me atendió me dio una mirada rara jaja. La compra fue un éxito total y además, están muy bien de precio. Por cierto, también me encantan estos! Bueno, ahora os dejo con este look que elegí para pasar el día con la familia y amigos de mi marido, y para pasear por esta ciudad que tiene un sitio especial en mi corazón :)

Neki od vas već znaju da s vremena na vreme idemo u Meridu, gradić u jugozapadnoj Španiji, rodno mesto mog muža. Merida je bila nešto kao Rim Iberijskog poluostrva za vreme rimskog carstva, pa mi se upravo to učinilo kao zanimljiva ideja koja bi inspirisala današnju kombinaciju. Kada želimo da nosimo nešto u duhu Starog Rima, prvo što nam pada na pamet je bela haljina. Ja sam izabarala ovu koja je možda najpraktičnija haljina koju imam jer je nosim u mnogim prilikama i tokom svih godišnjih doba (pogledajte ovde kako sam je nosila zimus u elegantnijoj varijanti). Broj 2 su svakako rimske sandale, takozvane gladijatorke. Ja sam ih kupila u Mangu na aerodromu i smešno mi je kad se setim te kupovine. Jurila sam da stignem na let, ali ne, umesto da nastavim da jurim, ugledala sam Mango, setila se da sam tu videla ove sandale, skenirala prodavnicu u roku od nekoliko sekundi, probala sandale za još kraće vreme i jurnula ka kasi da ih platim. Čak me je i devojka koja je radila gledala sa blagim čuđenjem haha. Uglavnom, ja sam ipak stigla na let sa sve sandalama i jako sam zadovoljna njima, a i cena im je veoma pristupačna. Kad smo već kod tih sandala, možda mi se još više dopadaju ove! Sada vas ostavljam sa ovom kombinacijom koju sam izabrala za dan sa Ulisesovom porodicom i društvom, kao i za šetnju ovim gradićem koji ima posebno mesto u mom srcu :)

  1. Možeš li biti više savršena?! Stvarno ti divno stoji ta bijela haljinica u stilu rimske tunike, a zlatni remen i torbica se savršeno slažu....gladiatorske sandale su šlag na torti. Fenomenalno izgledaš!!!!

    Merida mi se jako svidjela već pri prvom virtualnom susretu na tvom blogu i tebi zapravo mogu zahvaliti što sam naučila nešto o ovom lijepom i zanimljivom gradu.

  23. Tako jednostavno, a tako lijepo! Kao pravi si modni kameleon, izgledaš famozno u svemu što iskombiniraš :) Ovo mi je jedan od tvojih najdražih outfita, ne znam otkud bih prije krenula da ti prokomentiram, kad mi se sve tako sviđa i maznula bih ti prvom prilikom iz ormara i haljinu i gladijatorice (mora da su ti bile suđene hehe) :D Sviđaju mi se i ove iz Choiesa i povoljne su, morat ću razmislit hmhm.. samo me navodiš na grijeh :D

  27. Oh, wow, this place is breathtaking, I really like the places where you feel the history :) And don't worry about this story about buying sandals - I had very similar to you and it was also in ...MANGO :P I didn't want to buy anything, but I made up my mind and 3 minutes later I left this store with new bag ;)

  30. This look and these pictures blew me away girl :o

    I have been flirting with those Mango sandals for a while too. They're just so awsome :D

    r: I didn't notice that you said you couldn't see the form :( The widget was taking a little bit to be ready, I think it was because lots of people were trying to enter at the same time.

    Could you do it already sweety?

    1. Thank you, sweety! :)
      Hehe, you should buy them, trust me, you won't be disappointed! Plus, I haven't seen cheaper gladiators :D
      Oh, ok, I'm gonna try it again. It's probably that, thanks for your concern :)
