Long slip dresses haven’t been my thing. I liked them but it was always easier for me to put on a longsleeve mini dress instead and not to worry about the second layer. That’s the reason I loved this AllSaints two piece featuring a knitted wool jumper with a satin slip dress underneath. It looks absolutely cool together, effortlessly with a touch of grunge. If you need even a warmer jumper, then there is a warmer option of similar two piece here or in grey colour. I mixed the dress with the high heeled pointed toe shoes and Louis Vuitton mini back pack to make the look more casual and more accurate for the day.

I absolutely love tailored blazers mixed with some white or grunge t-shirts to add that cool edgy look. This checked two piece from Maje can be styled so many different ways and I already regret I forgot to shoot it with button closed. Anyway I was wearing it with Gucci t-shirt from Men’s department, good old snake print boots and the cutest mini backpack from Louis Vuitton. I wasn’t sure if I didn’t go too crazy with all those prints and colors in my outfit, I usually need at least one element to be black. As an excuse I can tell you ( and to myself) I didn’t have enough space in my suitcase to bring one more pair of black boots. I flew to Barcelona just for the weekend.

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!

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.
