This year I had the privilege of traveling with a group of my girls to Barcelona and Madrid to celebrate my birthday. Can you believe I was able to travel with one carry on across the world for SEVEN days and still be able to shop. Mostly for Dylan. My friends couldn’t believe it. Once upon a time no so long ago. I was the girl with one luggage for shoes and another with clothes ,accessories, bags, and makeup. *insert side-eye* don’t judge me.
Although, we had a super busy and adventurous itinerary. This is how I was able to travel with one carry on. Tip: numero Uno the itinerary. Have an idea of where you’re going so your looks can match location. I must take a moment to confess because lord knows I like to overdress. This is a tip I had to give myself. The most important piece of packing detail for me is the itinerary.
1.Pack according to each days activities. When packing put each outfit on your bed from head to toe including accessories. for some of my readers that may include your wig.
I chose outfits that are light and can roll. I packed a lot of one pieces. Light jumpers , & romper-for day activities. Add accessories such as hats, umbrella, or poncho.
2. Tip learned from experience. Barcelona is Mucho Caliente pack a fan that operate with battery. we ended up buying a hand fan. Although, super cute I used a lot of energy to fan myself.
3. Pack a bag that is versatile for day activities.
4. Another tip I learned from experience. Pack one cute Fashionable sneaker that can be worn with all of your day wear.
Some of my Looks from Barcelona and Madrid.
Day activity One
Top & bottom: F21
Waist Belt: Asos
I Landed at 8:30 am Quickly changed from my relaxed airport attire to my first day activity outfit. first we stopped at the Cathedral de barcelona Gothic Quarter. We weren't aware of the dress code until we arrived and saw the sign. The Good thing is you're able to purchase a scarf and over up to enter.
In the night we planned a pastel theme dinner to celebrate the two birthday ladies. I was intentional when looking for outfits for this trip. When I think of Spanish style outfits. I think lace, frills, off the shoulder, and ruffles. Similar to the traditional "Flamenca outfit" the traditional dress women wear at festivals.
Dress: Avantlook- Saks off fifth

We took a flight from Barcelona to Madrid and ate at one of the worlds first restaurant name sabrino de botin
Day two in Madrid : Activity. we visited, plaza de Mayor, Puerta de Sol, Plaza de cibles. I wore frills and layers giving a real Spain-ish vibe.
Shoes: Michal Kors
night activity: Dinner and all white night with the ladies.
Last Day in Madrid we visited the Royal Palace of Madrid. I kept this look very feminine but practical for site seeing and being able to walk around on the royal court. ( idk why I said this in a British accent)
