This summer I had the pleasure of taking an incredible week long trip to Spain. Because I was only there for 6 days and didn’t want to risk losing my luggage, I travelled with a carry on for the first time ever on a flight. For anyone that knows me, this was a very big deal since I’m a terrible overpacker. Since room in my suitcase was minimal, I planned out exactly what I was going to wear for each activity. I’m sharing my outfits to give ideas on what to pack. The women in Spain dress very fashionably and chic, so I wanted to blend in while also wearing comfy clothes for exploring. One of the best purchase that I made for the trip was this purse from Mango. It fit my cards, lip balm, stick sunscreen, and was even large enough to fit a water bottle or aerosol sunscreen. It will also work well heading into the fall.
Day 1: Exploring Madrid
As soon as we arrived in Madrid, we went exploring around the city. I’m normally a S in dresses, but I sized up to a M because the chest was tight for my 28″ waist and doesn’t have any stretch. You can never go wrong with a LWD with summer and I know that I’ll wear this for summers to come.
Day 1: Dinner in Madrid
Day 2: Travel to Granada
Don’t sleep on men’s Gap! I have this linen shirt in navy and white and. It has a great relaxed fit without being too baggy. I absolutely love these denim shorts from Zara. I also have them in a darker blue colour.
Day 2: Dinner at a Moroccan Restaurant
Shirt: Free People (Old) / Skirt: Mango (Old) / Purse / Sandals: Hermes
Day 3: Guided Tour of the Alhambra
The day, we headed to the Alhambra for a 3 hour guided tour. It was sweltering hot but definitely the highlight of the trip. Sneakers are a must and I wish that I had worn a hat.
Day 3: Formal Dinner
I’m in love with the Genoa dress from Wilfred that I’ve had for a couple seasons. It’s super flowy and comfy, plus you can dress it up or down. Granada is very hill-y so I wore flat gold sandals from Zara.
Day 4: Train + Beach Day in Nerja
Day 5: Museum and Dinner in Madrid
