Would you mind living here? Me gustaria bien, gracias. The Casa de Pilatos, one of the finest palaces of Seville, is still occupied by the ducal Medinaceli family. It was built in the last quarter of the 15th century but was repeatedly altered throughout the centuries because its respective lords couldn’t resist the temptation to incorporate the new styles that had inspired them during their travels. (Pinterest syndrome avant la lettre, it seems.) The outcome is a place with Spanish Mudéjar, Gothic, Italian Renaissance and Romantic styles scrambled together elegantly. Quite unique indeed! I’ve only added a few pictures of the place here as I plan to post the remainder (which includes pictures of the serene, blooming garden) in a future photo diary of Seville.

I often add a touch of bohème to my outfits (see this outfit post and this post about summer crochet). Well, this dress is outright bohemian, with its off-shoulder design, subtle bell sleeves, scallop hem and patterned crochet fabric. It’s perfect for the day (except for really hot days) and the long sleeves provide that little extra warmth needed when sitting outside during summer evenings. Given the detailed design of the dress, I kept the accessories simple, just wearing my leather camera bag, black crochet espadrilles and a few bangles. I wore a very seventies pendant choker to further bring out that boho charm. The necklace features a mood stone, which means that it changes colour according to… well, I wouldn’t know according to what. Temper? Temperament? Temperature? The latter seems more plausible. So far, I’ve seen blue, green and orangish but unfortunately, my necklace didn’t seem too eager to show off its gimmicks while we were shooting (it appears blue on all pictures)! An acute case of camera shyness? Or of prudery? Or was it just mood stone moodiness? I’ll tell you when it shows more colours of the rainbow.
