WIWW: Madrid Shots

Hello, all!


At this time of the year, we usually take long weekend trips around Spain or to nearby Portugal. This time we stopped by Toledo and Cuenca and only used Madrid as a place to sleep for the night. More photos of Toledo and Cuenca in my later posts( I know, I owe you a lot of travel posts!) but let me just show you a glimpse of our last day spent in Madrid at the height of the garbage collection strike in Spain. Spain´s capital city took our breath away literally for the wrong reasons especially while looking for a place to dine in one of the most transited and oldest streets, La Gran Vía but it´s surprising to see that they´re still a lot of tourists in the street amidst the mounting pile of trash!

Anyway, here are some shots from our short morning walk at the Plaza de Castilla and around El Parque de Retiro, two of the places which were relatively garbage free at that time:

jacket, sweater- H&M, skirt- Stradivarius, bag- Bimba y Lola
I decided to wear my puffy blue skirt for the last time and wore something preppy as usual.


So how´s the midweek? We´re having a cold snowy Wednesday in here, I hope yours is sunny and warm while I stay curled on the sofa with my thick blanket. ;)
