Viva La Madrid

cover

So, THANK GAWD I got the opportunity to visit Madrid after Morocco.  I literally fell in love with this city.  There’s something about the Latin culture that makes me come alive.  From the food and friendliness, to the music… It’s just an incredible culture.  Because you can’t be in Spain and not go to a flamenco show, we made it our first stop.  I highly recommend booking a table at Corral de la Moreria for dinner and the most incredible flamenco show EVER!  I mean like WOW.  I felt like I was burning calories while watching these dancers.

Madrid was extremely warm so a cocktail dress and comfortable pumps made for the perfect outfit for a night on the town.

I wore this soft pastel printed For Love and Lemons dress a basic white pashmina and my comfy braided pumps.  I was ready to paint the town red!

Mad for Maroc

Put aside your bold accessories and go for a statement dress.  As we all know, black and white is a global trend for 2014.   Abstract designs and asymmetrical prints are the perfect way to mix up your look.  This artsy patterend sheer dress is a huge obsession of mine.  I wore a black lightweight slip under for a sultry yet sophisticated look.

I was determined to wear my all time favorite pumps for an eye catching ensemble.  Which btw, these Gucci Ursula pumps have been a wear-forever investment worth every penny.  I have yet to find a black pump I prefer over these beauties. (hashtag, FACT) I completed my outfit with an all white pashmina and acrylic bag for an art-deco look.  This outfit was easy enough to put together that I didn’t miss the sunset!  WOW.  Now time for some tagine!
