Beat the Fall blues with plush flush of sensual and cozy burgundy knits! As a person who suffers from meteoropathy, dressing against my mood helps me to battle rainy and gloomy Fall weather.  In Barcelona Fall is rainy and windy but mild in temperature, it still allows bare legs which is great for someone who wears lots of dresses like I do almost daily.

MY FALL DRESSING RECIPE

The base for my personal recipe for Fall dressing are midi/maxi viscose or wool dresses. My dresses always have a generous amount of floral pattern (yes in Fall too! In nature leaves are drying out and falling while I continue to bloom 😃 ) which I combine with chunky wool and cashmere sweaters and leather or velvet booties. On colder days I replace my dresses with denim or leather pants worn with colorful coats, loose fitting cashmere sweaters and silk cami tops with lace trimming.




B LIKE BURGUNDY

For this #ootd look I styled loop ring burgundy wool dress from Asos with circle floral clutch and velvet bee chocker by Croatian brand Bura. We shot this post in charming restaurant Cachistos in Barcelona in La Rambla street. On top of great food and quick service this restaurant is designed to be a perfect place for various occasions from quick drink while you are visiting town to business teams lunches and romantic dinners with your significant other. With its comfortable velvet and leather sofas, cozy corner nooks and luxurious decor it was a perfect locations for our burgundy Fall mood shoot.

After almost a year of eating everything Anabela started to be a picky eater over Summer. As I am adamant to keep her eating veggies and proteins well so I found alternative ways to get all that good stuff, vitamins, minerals and proteins into her without forcing her to eat what she doesn't want to - I packed it all into bite size mini muffins.

As a member of various mommy facebook groups and curious mom cook who likes trying new recipes (which are super quick to make) I tried a whole lot of recipes given by moms, nutritionists and cooks throughout the vastness of internet platforms, forums and Pinterest, after Anabela tried the prepared muffins I tweaked each recipe here and there to make it more healthier or more toddler taste buds friendly and I came up with 10 quick, easy and healthy recipes for your fussy eater toddler.

Before listing out the recipes I listed some useful kitchen tools and gadgets which are not mandatory but are super useful for preparing these muffins, although most you can prepare by using just fork, 2 mid size bowls, baking pan and the oven. :)  The tools listed will make preparation quicker and cleaning after much easier as it all goes into dishwasher and voila, you are done!

All of the recipes are within 8-30 minutes preparation range.

Bellow I am listing some good substitutes in case you want to replace (or omit) any of the ingredients:


  • White/brown sugar can be replaced by honey/maple syrup  - for every 1 cup of sugar, substitute 1/2 to 2/3 cup honey and reduce oven temperature by 25F
  • To avoid egg -measure 1/3 cup applesauce for each egg you are substituting for
  • You can replace white flour with integral flour or you may substitute oats for up to one-third the amount of flour called for in the recipe
  • To replace butter for coconut oil - measure coconut oil in a one-to-one ratio and substitute it for butter

My closet is packed with floral dresses but I realized I have almost no orange piece of clothing! This season I decided to invest in (another) boho maxi floral dress but this time in orange with long sleeves and gorgeous button details and front draping.

Obvious brand to start my search with was Free People which is indeed where I found one. The only issue with shopping from Free People when in Europe are customs fees. Asos sometimes also carries Free People items which is one of the ways to avoid paying import fees on their products.



Since Fall in Barcelona is extremely mild (read short sleeves and shorts in mid October) I played with combining this gorgeous colorful dress with red accessory and favorite distresses boyfriend jeans. 

My favorite piece from this look is this red, super soft leather Homanz mini bag. I wear this bag every single day and it ads a pop of color to any outfit. The bag is made out of luxurious soft leather, a kind you can see only with premium handbag brands. I love that the bag has blue piping and extra pockets inside for small accessory.





The red suede shoes and 'bisous' gold bracelet are from & Other Stories, one of the shops I order most from but I carefully check materials and making every time as this is what usually makes a big difference in comfort and fit.
