Silver Short Look

Hi!!! How was your weekend? It’s been a few days since I’ve made a post, since I’ve been on holiday. Those of you who follow me on social networks (@FriendlytMadrid) have already seen some photos of the trip, and very soon I’ll tell you more.¬†ūüôā





Today’s look is highlighted by these shorts by¬†ZARA¬†from last season. Initially, I thought I wouldn’t get much use from them since they are made of bright shiny leather, however, in reality they’re easy to match so easy to wear, even during the day.




I combined them with a check long sleeved blouse from  MANGO, blue vintage belt and beige suede sandals from ZARA. Sunglasses by Jimmy Choo.


A few days ago I visited¬†Privilege Dental¬†at¬†Lorena Morlote,¬†Calle Vel√°zquez, 69 Madrid¬†and had my¬†teeth whitened. The treatment consisted of 35% hydrogen peroxide for 30 minutes with instant results. It’s safe for your teeth and gums but you may notice temporary sensitivity.

This weekend we went to MadrEAT street food market.


The street market takes place on the third weekend of every month, on this occasion in AZCA, a business plaza in the Chamartin neighborhood of Madrid. 




The market consists of colorful food trucks serving a wide variety of cuisines, from Indian samosas to Chilean sandwiches, as well all the classic Spanish dishes. And unsurprisingly, the longest lines seemed to be for hamburgers. Many of the top young chefs from Madrid participate in the lively event.




The most recent event included exhibitions and show-cooking.


The look I wore on this very hot day: a blouse with bare shoulders in white with flowers from STRADIVARIUS and short skirt with fringes from ZARA. Sunglasses CARRERA by JIMMY CHOO.







Sandals  from a few seasons ago still in style this year, cangrejeras style.

People come out to enjoy the good weather on the cafe terraces around the fair. Definitely pay a visit to the fair during the next edition. 


Casual Look

It’s nearly summer but the weather has not been too hot. For these days that it’s more difficult to decide what to wear, where we still have to dress up but informal, here are a few suggestions.


A fine black sweater and jacket from MANGO. 




Jeans from¬†MET, an Italian firm that makes pants that fit¬†great. You’ll love them!

Wedges from¬†Casta√Īer¬†in white and transparent, these sandals are really comfortable and go with everything, the only thing is the color, since they get dirtily easily.

Black & white dress

Hello everyone!! How’s your week going? I’m back in Madrid. These are photos I made in Tarifa last weekend.


It was a great long weekend, we enjoyed exploring Tarifa and spending a day in Tanger. Soon I will tell you more details and tips from our trip.


One afternoon, I wore this dress to go for a walk and dinner.



The classic Rayban Wayfarer sunglasses in black.



Clarins makeup.


A very comfortable easy look for summer, with this black and white Mango dress (new). For a casual evening to wear with other accessories, heels, or black bag to create a more sophisticated look.


Gladiator sandals are a must for Spring-Summer 2015. These from Uterque (new), I found them in the store by chance they were supposedly out of stock. You can tie the strips lower down or around your legs like in the photo.


What do you think of this look, do you like the dress and sandals?




Summer Time

Hello from Tarifa, Thursday¬†was a holiday in Madrid, so we’re here for the long weekend.


A good occasion to try on this t-shirt and go to the beach.


From ‘Rojo Piruleta‘ a new t-shirt brand¬†that has just created an artesanal line, made in Spain.


I chose this model at the event for bloggers in Madrid, for it’s summer look, and I like the colors and the watermelon design.


The Summer 2015 collection is now on sale. There are various models available that are really pretty and original that you can see on their website:


The coloring on each piece of clothing is made using pigments and is superficial. They are exclusive, with no two being identical.




I combined the t-shirt with shorts from ZARA (old), sunglasses from Rayban (new), and a hat from Extreme Collection (old) as well as wedges from Unisa (new).


What do you think of the look? Have a great weekend!


Siberia Salon

Last week Friday, I was introduced to Siberia Salón de Manicura a very cozy place for manicures and pedicures in the beautiful Jeronimos district, at Calle Juan de Mena,11.





Here with Olga who did my great manicure and pedicure.

En Siberia-Salon

The team of professionals who work there are from Siberia, Russia, and hence the name of the salon. While they did my manicure, they explained that in Russia women care greatly for their looks and spend a lot of time in the beauty salon.



The manicure I chose was a permanent French style, with long lasting polish from OPI.

Dressing for a Ceremony

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?

We’re in the wedding season, with baptisms and first communions, and this past Saturday I attended the first communion of my nephew. Here is the look that I chose.

Being a daytime ceremony, the most appropriate outfit is a cocktail dress and in Spring, best to wear soft colors, pastel, white silver, and try to avoid black in daytime events and celebrations.

I wore this dress by Angel Schlesser that combines white and silver, sleeve to the elbow and straight but adapted to the body. You can rent this dress at

Silver sandals from Jimmy Choo, black sunglasses by Tom Ford, and silver handbag with pailletes from Yokana.








What do you think of this look? I would love to know your opinion!
