H&M pleasantly surprised lately - nice lace tops, ruffles, jumpers, shirts for layering, utility shirts to wear with skirts and jeans. Lots of good Blazers too - although you said no Boden, I I would definitely recommend the camel Boden Elizabeth blazer from the clearance section - at just over £50. It goes with everything and smartens any outfit! So you'll just need some tops, jeans, a black dress and maybe some scarfs and necklaces to accessorise?
Apologies if you know this already, but when you are in Barcelona, don't say you're in Spain! Say Catalonia.
They'll blank you otherwise. Similarly, if you're the sort who likes to learn a few phrases to help you get aboutfind out a few phrases (hello, please, thank you, a beer and two cokes please) learn them in Catalan, not Spanish. There is a big political movement to just ignore people who use Castilian. You'd get on better using French or English than Spanish..
