I just found out that I am going to Spain with some of my family for Christmas! I am so excited and instantly was worried about what the heck I am going to wear. The weather man seems to call for 50/40s.

Above is what I wish would be in my suitcase if I had the time (and wasn’t saving for a wedding).

Have you been to Spain? What do you suggest I wear, see and/or do?!

After spending a semester in Barcelona, I can safely say it’s my favorite city in the world — let me know if you’d like me to email you an itinerary of ideas I sent to friends who visited the city a few months back, lots of great suggestions!

Cheers :)

That’s so amazing! What a great holiday adventure! I have that scarf & absolutely love it. Packing for trips is so stressful, especially when they’re kind of last minute! But I’m sure it will all come together :) I need that passport holder!

You simply MUST see the Park Retiro (spelling?? It has been a while?!?!) in Madrid. Gorgeous park to wander through all day!

If you can, you should take the train to San Sebastian in the Basque region. Great food (pintxos!), great wine (Rioja and Txakoli!), and beautiful scenery!

I’m from Spain, although I currently live in Miami. So great you’re getting to enjoy it during Christmas! Both cities are wonderful, although Madrid is going to be colder. Most people don’t realize that Madrid is at a pretty high altitude above sea level, so it’s pretty cold. My home is in Madrid, so I know much more about that city.

You must visit The Prado Museum, of course, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and the Reina Sofia. El Palacio Real is also great. Be sure to stroll the top shopping streets of Serrano, Claudio Coello, Velasquez, and all the other nearby ones in the Barrio de Salamanca. For a typical visit to the old city, go to Cuchilleros and Puerta del Sol (where people welcome the New Year). For an interesting gourmet experience, you can visit El Mercado de San Miguel, an old “market” near la Puerta del Sol full of tapas and exquisite food.

For a less “touristy” shopping experience, you can go to La Moraleja Green, where you’ll find luxury shopping nearby Madrid. You also should visit a Corte Ingles, the typical Spanish department store. Not going is like going to London and not visiting Harrods…LOL! The best ones are the one in Castellana and the one in San Chinarro. A smaller one in Serrano is awesome, as well.

If you have the opportunity to take a day trip, you MUST visit Toledo! The entire city is protected by Unesco and it’s amazing! Another easy day trips are Segovia (fantastic Roman aqueduct and world-famous pork), Avila (an intact Roman city wall), Aranjuez (the vacation palace of the kings), Cuenca (hanging mountain dwellings), and El Escorial (burial place of kings and an amazing cathedral and monuments).

From Madrid, you can take the high-speed train to Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, etc., so it’s a great way to take longer-distance day trips.

In Barcelona, you must, of course, visit La Sagrada Familia, Parque Guell, both by Gaudi, and stroll Las Ramblas, Passeig de Gràcia, and Diagonal. Also, visit the Puerto.

Hope it helped! Have a FANTASTIC time!!! :D If you have any questions, just ask :)

I live in Madrid! Winter is colddddd. So bring boots, scarves and a good coat! It’s impossible to wear flats without tights/nylon socks. But def dress in layers because whilst it’s cold outside, it’s always toasty in the metro and restaurants! This season, trendy girls in Spain are really into Longchamp bags, varsity looking jackets, sneaker wedges and fur vests over leather motorcycle jackets.
