I’ve only been to Madrid once before so I thought why not get to know the city a bit more since I’m already in Spain anyway. The first time I went here, all I remember doing was shopping and eating. This time, I made it a point to tour around the city and not just shop along Gran Via and Barrio De Salamanca.
First stop, the Royal Palace of Madrid or Palacio Real De Madrid. This is the official residence of Spain’s Royal Family, although they don’t actually live here. Like most of the palaces in Europe, the palace is as grand as ever. I wish I can show you the interior of the palace but taking pictures were forbidden once inside. I made the most out of the palace square and exterior though so I hope these photos are enough to get your imagination going.
As for my outfit for the day, as much as I wish I wore a fancier dress to match my backdrop, let’s face it, comfort is key when touring around Europe, especially when a HUGE palace is part of your itinerary. So, I got my new pastel oxfords from LeBunny Bleu and dressed cozily instead. I actually got my outfit inspiration from my choice of footwear. I like how they’re masculine in style but feminine in color. This is LeBunny Bleu‘s aesthetic–a combination of masculine and feminine elements that produces unique and playful designs. The brand channels retro influences, showcasing New York City hipster cool (where the brand originated from) and the effortless character of European style. Don’t you think my outfit has a bit of these characteristics too?
If you’re going on vacation anytime soon and want some comfortable but stylish footwear like mine, I suggest hitting a LeBunny Bleu store near you. You’ll love the brand’s spring summer collection comprised of pastel oxfords, colorful and strappy flats, espadrilles with hand-stitched and fresh color contrast details, girly ballet flats adorned with ribbons, bows and pearls and finally, bright-colored sneakers and boat shoes. You don’t have to be in heels to look your best.
