corner view "street fashion"








I´m back... with a few more grey hairs...

I really wanted to show you the fashion in San Sebastian. The women there put on a white t-shirt and jeans and look like they just stepped out of Vogue. (I put on the same thing and look like I just stepped out of Mental Health Today...) However, I was in Zarauz on Sunday. So instead, I bring you your average Zarauz beach bum...
I love how cute the girls in the fifth picture are dressed. From now on I will be getting all my fashion tips from 8 year olds...

Have Fun! Next week´s corner view theme comes from Lisa and is "music." Have fun people watching! Besos!

Yep, i'm the first one ! Nice shots Jane ! I recognize the spanish style ! Especially the "basque style" !! My husband is a basque man !

Allison said...

Oh, I am longing to wear such "beach clothes", but right now the weather in Hamburg has not gotten warm enough to even wear open toe shoes, sniff, sniff. As always... wunderschöne fotos!

sophie said...

The street next the beach for you.
Thank's for these pictures who make me dream. Live next the sea.

Nice photos. I also like the little girls in the fifth photo. They have it so together.

Kari said...

yes those little girls look adorable and have great fashion sense. Love the pictures!

Dorte said...

Good to see that you figured out your photo issue with blogger:-)
So cool pics from your corner. Those tents look great!

Crescent Moon said...

I agree. Those little girls with their scarves look great. Everyone else, though, looks more relaxed and summery.

ladybug-zen said...

those girls are really sweet. i remember that about spaniards, especially the women, looking great in really casual clothing.

Joyce said...

I love the photo of the little girls. I don't think I was fashionable at that age or yet at this age! I hope some day you can share the girls from "vogue". Have a golden day! xoox

trinsch said...

love your photos. and i'm with you on the white tee and jeans... i can still stare at these specific women and wonder what exactly it is they do. like they have this secret i don't know about...

cute girl indeed :)

Bonnie said...

i am still laughing !!! i looked like i stepped out of Mental Health Today !! ha ha. so funny ! but i totally get it !!

love the photos you got ... even if they aren't the ones you wanted to share !! :)

hmm ... music ... need to put my thinking cap on for that one !!

isabelle said...

these little lollipop girls are really sweet !!

Jeanette said...

Lovely pictures from people wearing sunny clothes :0)

B said...

I love, love, love those little girls too! And they don't look like walking Zara catalogues, whereas most grown up girls in Spain do (including me until I move away!)

ticklishfromadistance said...

These are great! Love the photo of the little girls as well. They are quite fashionable and adorable...wish I looked like them, too!

Lisa said...

Love the little ladies with lollies! My Fauna is almost 8 and tells me how to dress all the time now, she thinks I'm too hippy and she is sooooo fashionable. She spend the other day working on wrist warmers. gotta love little girls!

Lisa :)

Cate said...

that first shot just kills me. such great colors and such great style. i want to be there, too.

you KNOW that the little girls and their scarves and their lollipops are also right up my ally. absolutely beautiful, and i love the muted colors.

nicola said...

your text matches your pictures perfectly. i was looking thinking "look at those stylish girls!" your average beach bums are dressed far better than our beach bums around here!

True fashion queens!! Great pictures as always. Have a wonderful week.

spudballoo said...

So funny, love the 'Mental Health Today'...gorgeous pictures. Those little girls have natural style, gah i hate that.

I'll be playing along later...with nothing nearly so glam!!

Liz said...

Love the stripey tents!

Sophie said...

I really like how Spanish people pay attention to their clothes when they go outside for a walk. These little girls are so cute!

Di said...

Hey! Beautiful shots! I love the 8 year olds outfits....I think I'll be looking to them for advice too.

I cheated just a little - photos of the street as opposed to street fashion.....

Kaylovesvintage said...

the first one also for me

Kimmie said...

Lovely sense of style here! We should all be so lucky :)

My best fashion tips come from my 7-11 yr old girls :)

l i s e said...

janis said...

European kids are so chic, it blows me away! The scarf, the scarf... :)

Coucou Couture said...

jane...these street fashion pix are so inspiring! i love the sleeves & jacket detail on that jacket [2nd down!] i'm taking my cues from 8-year-olds too! i need a fashion photographer... :)

malo said...

Hi Jane! I love the first woman's style. As always, your photos so radiant.
I just wanted to say that I wont' make my corner today. I am feverish and just started a penicillin cure.
Hope to be back on track for music next week. Hugs.

Jennifer said...

Hola, Jane!

I just watched M. Hulot's Holiday...striped beach tents abound, just like in your post.

I like that jacket on that young woman...interesting details.

The scarves on all the little girls...

Love it all as usual.

la lune dans le ciel said...

travelingmama said...

Spaniards have the absolute best fashion sense! Every time we are in Spain I find myself looking down suspiciously at my clothes. What once looked so fashionable always seems to come up short! Or maybe that's just my excuse to go shopping at Massimo Dutti and Zara!

A Captured Reflection said...

Your photos are always fresh and eye catching - love the stripes, the fashions and the angles!

Kristina * said...

oh so stylish...! even the striped beach huts are to die for! :)

Ian said...

I see what you mean about beach bums.
'Looking at he peaches sitting on the beaches.'

kim said...

what a beautiful post! those little girls are amazing - and love those tents on the beach - your photos really rock!

Ida Nielsen said...

Such darling little 'tents'.
The jeans and t-shirt line made me laugh out laugh; thank you!!

Silver Artisan said...

So very cute, the girls with jewelry and scarfs! Love how naturally chic they look. Reminds me of my own childhood.

MODsquad said...

Oh, those little ladies are darling in their scarves!! So chic! Love that top photo too!!

Happy Day, Jane from Spain!

Erin said...

I agree.. love the girls with the scarves, so sweet. I wish we lived someplace where I could dress "beach chic" everyday.. that's totally my kind of style! :)

april said...

i like your sense of humor, your funny words together with your beautiful pictures. thankyou jane and have a wonderful week*

Sammi said...

Ah how I miss the sea. Spanish style is so awesome and relaxed, I miss it!

ibb said...

I am with you. Women in San Sebastian have something...french.

I usually go there to find clothes, but it is not the same.

jgy said...

These are gorgeous, Jane.
And Yes, the girls have an amazing fashion sense, down to the color of the lollipops.
I love the view of the seawalls and can feel the breeze...
xo

Jodi said...

Great shots Jane, BTW, I posted the only shot I got of the martian lady. It was under the disguise of photographing my dog so I got her feet. FUNNNNY!

n a t s u m i said...

The girls are so cute and I like what they wear! I can't wait to go to the beach! Thank you for sharing lovely photos!!!

A Day That is Dessert said...

great view as always Jane! dreamlike. xoxo

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I love the stripes! And only children in Europe wear artfully draped scarves...

caitlin said...

Mental Health Today huh? Yeah I have a hard time believing that. I love that ruffly coat!

Vanessa said...

Gorgeous photos...love it!

clairette said...

Later than every one but I made it!!! My first corner view! Merci beaucoup Jane.

Elizabeth said...

I just knew that not only the buildings, but also the fashions would be perfect where you are! And I agree that the little girls look smashing!

Ana Gonzalez said...

En San Sebastian y todo el norte, la gente viste muy elegante. Los niños los llevan hechos un primor, todo conjuntado. Verdaderamente cuidan mucho el detalle en la ropa.

lovepics said...

oh, i travel with your pics.... love love love the 1. one!

Jeannette said...

I want a beach tent as in the first photo! And yes...I know..I don´t have a garden. But wouldn´t it look great in the livingroom? ;)

Esti said...

I'm counting the days for my summer vacation and my one month stay in Zarauz. I hope I see you around some time too :)

julochka said...

love these pix, as always and totally agree on the fashion thing...mental health today indeed (i wish i could look that put together...) sigh.

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
