“Artworks can tell us so much about life and philosophy without speaking a word, without making any noise. What a contrary to my urban life with multitudes of sounds that usually contain little significance.”
Cadaqués is absolutely the place to be for the summer. A beautiful town in Catalonia, Spain, and home to the famous artist Salvador Dalí, I was instantly lost in a picturesque paradise.
My favorite part about this trip is definitely visiting Dalí’s house in Portlligat. As a teenager, I spent half of my last high school year in the art studio. I drew and painted as I wished, and I relished the freedom so. Artworks can tell us so much about life and philosophy without speaking a word, without making any noise. What a contrary to my urban life with multitudes of sounds that usually contain little significance.
I appreciate how the Dalinian symbols inspire me: hard on the outside and soft on the inside like the snail or the egg (Isn’t this true for most people too?), mystery in the drawer, strength of the elephant, and the mastery of time of the clock that governs human life. I admit that realizing how fast time progresses makes me nervous!
I need an outfit that has the summer vibe yet comfortable, to accommodate a very active day of constant exploration. So, I combine my sneakers with yoga pants and a floral off-the-shoulder top. I complete the look with some very summery accessories such as the floral headband and butterflies earrings. Lastly, I add my absolute must: the bold lip color, for this occasion, in magenta with the M.A.C Flat Out Fabulous.
Dalí had the most gorgeous garden in white stones. I would definitely go back to hang out there again.
