You probably are freezing cold right now because autumn has arrived, no doubt about that, so I decided to warm you up by posting my photos from my trip to Madrid in August. I stayed at my favourite Posada Del Dragon boutique hotel in La Latina, in an old part of the city and definitely my favourite area. Just a walking distance from Plaza Mayor with its beautiful little streets around. It was almost 40 degrees Celsius while we took these photos, I was wearing a black lace dress, heeled sandals and crochet backpack from Wool & The Gang. Now I’m switching into ‘winter mode’. No shorts or lace dresses anymore. Fur coat season is on and I’m not too happy about that!

Shades of blue in Madrid

I absolutely love Madrid’s architecture. It’s reminds me of Paris a little bit, but it is much more colourfull. And I literally wanted to take pictures on every single street corner. These shots were taken in La Latina, very close to Plaza Mayor. I was wearing Ganni cashmere jumper, Levi’s denim shorts and my new favourite backpack from The Wool and The Gang. Check out their crochet products, you gonna love them all!

Las Rozas Village Madrid

A few days ago I had the pleasure to visit Las Rozas Village in Madrid, one of the nine Villages, located in Europe’s favourite cities. It’s a luxury outlet center, home to more than 90 boutiques, from highstreet brands to luxury designers like Gucci, Versace, Missoni or the British superbrand Burberry . After visiting their Parisian village a year ago I was extremely happy to explore it in Madrid. What I loved the most was its charming architecture and a big terrace with an amazing view of the mountains, especially beautiful in the late afternoon, where I could have a cold drink after shopping. If you’re worried about hot temperatures in Madrid, especially in the summer, then I can promise it won’t be a big deal in the village. Each boutique has air conditioned inside, and outside you can try delicious icecream from Amorino to cool off.

But let’s get back to boutiques in Las Rozas Village. If you like Spanish brands, not necessairly these super popular highstreet brands which we all know but for example Bimba y Lola or Aristocrazy which is btw. my absolutely favourite jewellery brand of all times, then it’s a perfect place for you to buy great pieces in great prices all year round. It’s like sale season which never ends. Sounds good, right?! Apart from Spanish brands it’s worth to visit Furla ( I’m in love with this black mini tote which you can see on the pictures below) , Gucci, Loewe or some smaller cute stores with cotton tees or home accessories. You will love their products but also each boutique has an interesting and unique interior what makes your shopping experience more fun even if you’re not a big fan of shopping. After that you can eat traditional Spanish tapas or just a healthy green salad. And finally have a face massage in Orogold.
