outfit post: the segovian holiday

After Barcelona, I travelled to Madrid and spent the remaining days of my holiday in Madrid and nearby cities. One of the nearby cities is Segovia; under 30 minutes AVE train ride. Perfect for a day trip from Madrid.

Two main attractions that I love are the Alcázar of Segovia and the Aqueduct. Doesn't the Alcázar look like one of the palaces featured in Disney's animation or cartoon? Currently it is used as a museum and a military archives building. It was originally built as a fortress but has served a royal palace, a state prison, a Royal Artillery College and a military. As for the Aqueduct, it is the most magnificent landmark of Segovia. It was built during the Roman era and was used to transport water from the Rio Frio river to the city. The Aqueduct measures 14.965 meters long from its origin in the Sierra de Guadarrama mountains. It has 166 arches.

Outfit: vintage top, thrifted skirt, leather jacket and wedge sneakers

My outfit was inspired by Audrey Hepburn's Roman Holiday; white shirt with circle skirt. A simple yet classic look. However, on second thought, my look is kind of reminded me of the guys in Grease; black leather jacket, white t-shirt and blue denims. What a funny coincidence, don't you think?

Do you have any funny fashion coincidences? Feel free to share!

Till my next post, have a great weekend and stay chic.
